ok ive been trying to figure out everything i need to get and the pricesso i will just fill you guys in. so i got lighting(metal halide if i can find some cheap), circulation pump, powerheads, protien skimmer, Live rock, Substrate, salt-mix, refractometer, storage container to mix and age water, ro
water purification, test kits(i dont know wut kinds i need), siphon, thermometer, heaters, backround paint(no idea where to get that, want black), fish food, net, supplements, and fish. What would be a good list of inverts? Ive heard that people have trouble with their hermits eating their snails? if i start with a fish only system (with sand and live rock) and wait a month or 2 then add invertibrates and when i get proper lighting will the lr
be good for a reef say about 6 months after i put it in the water?
well let me know what u think
