Hi! It's been over 6 months since my last post... I'm back from the dead...
Ive been on a mental vacation for a few months, but lately I've been thinking about setting up a non-nano tank... So I have some questions for you guys before I get started:
I have a 55g currently that I plan on using for my salt tank. It can fit under my stand and can be used as a sump, but I'd have to find a larger display tank to put on top. I can't decide if I want to do that, or use the 55g as a display tank and look around for a smaller sump tank... What do you guys recommend?
That being said, would getting a HOB
overflow be fine, or should I go with the BeanAnimal coast to coast overflow I was planning on making? I don't want to worry about maintenance on an overflow.
Lights: I would love to take the reef path in the future, but I will be starting with a FOWLR
first. What kind of lights would work best? Should I get them when I first set up, or closer to when I plan on going to reef? Would I really need to plan on spending a few hundred on lights, or are there other options that work well for fairly cheap?
These are my first questions... I have most of the little things down an purchased. I just have a few big things to take care of before the official build.
Thanks in advance! Hope I can get this build started soon.
