so yesterday i found a new saltwater LFS
in Bellevue (saltwater city). I was rather disappointed in the store (expensive, kind of snobby, etc). anyway, they made it sound like you have to go the sump route (especially on a 75gal tank). well my stand doesn't have a lot of room underneith to work with. so i thought i would go the HOB
Below is the equipment that i intend to use. do you think it would work or should i use something different? i eventually would like to have a full reef setup.
-48" Nova Extreme 4x54 watt T5HO w/ 4 Lunar Lights
-2 (maybe 3) koralia 2's
-AquaC Remora PRO HOT Skimmer w/Mag 700 Pump Upgrade & ExtraTall Collection Cup
-5 stage 75 GDP Reverse Osmosis System Aquarium RO
-AquaFuge External hang-on refugium with powerhead 25"L x 4.5"W x 12"T
- Aqua Clear 110 Hang-On-Back Power Filter
- red sea wavemaker pro
- 45lbs premium fiji rock
- 35lbs kaelini tonga rock
thanks to everyone for their help so far.
