I have no experience with that particular heater, although titanium is prefered. The Q2 100 is max rated for 400 GPH
so be wary of the little giant if your head distance back to the tank is less than 4 ft. I would also recommend reducing the amount of bio bale they come with. It can be a nasty detritus trap until the tank has matured a fair amount and there is enough macro fauna to help eliminate accumulation. I would also recommend a few PH
inside the tank as the sump return GPH
will not be enough for the entire tank.
is up to you but is not a necessary piece of equipment IME
. The lights on the other hand are very important for a reef tank. 2x25w NO bulbs will not be near enough light. On a 60g tank (depending on depth) you would need at least 4x65w PC
or possible VHO
. There are many lighing options available but it would greatly depend on the tank dimensions as well as eventual species of corals to be kept.
