I've been browsing this site for a few days and finally decided to land my first post here. This Saturday I'll be picking up a 150g to be used as a FOWLR
or RT. I've got some beginner newbie questions that need some answering though.
-For filtration I plan on buying the Aqua clear Pro300 seen here:
......Is this a good choice for proper filtration? Would a refugium be a nesecessary addition to this set up? The tank does not have any holes drilled so I figured this was a decent deal having an overflow box coming with the product.
-Would I need more than one overflow box?
-I read in this forum that starting out your system as a FOWLR
is optimal as you can save on lighting. What other benefits come from this and is the money saved on lighting worth waiting for the reef aquarium?
-Crushed coral is a good choice for substrate I am reading...I hear sand gets caught in the filters? True?
-Which is the best type of LR
to purchase when first starting a SW
Thank you guys for all of your help, SW
is a lot to take in all at once (As I'm sure a lot of you guys know) and I hope I didnt sound toooo much like a newbie, though I wont try and hide it
