So I've been a member here for over a year because I've been wanting to start a reef tank for quite a while. I'm sure these questions are asked all the time, but I'm going to lay it out at it pertains to me.
I am going with the biocube 29 hqi. I want to figure out everything I need and hopefully you guys can advice me on specific products that require no modifications to the biocube.
I also need help figuring out exactly what i will need for my quarantine tank (10 gal
- HQI I know I'm good on the lights, and I'm going to use the stock protein skimmer for now.
I know I'll need a powerhead (or 2?)
a heater I assume
a chiller? do I need one if I keep the top off (and get non-jumping fish of course) My house is 69 degrees in the winter and 76 in the summer. Anything else?
- For the quarantine tank is all I need a filter and a heater?
- As for test kits what do I need? Soft corals only most likely. Ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, salinity (whats the name of the test for this?) and a thermometer. Anything else?
Sorry for so many questions.
