So I have recently been given a 10g aquarium with a HOB
filter. I would like to turn it into a 10g nano reef tank. This is my plan and if it is wrong please correct me.
I just ordered a new 20" hood that I plan on putting a 18" T5 15W 50/50 actinic flourecent bulb in.
I'll use the HOB
filter without a cartridge for additional current (might place carbon in from time to time for clear water and odor)
I have order a hydrometer and will get some instant ocean. I also plan to purchase 5-10 lbs of live rock and sand substrate.
Now the only thing I think that I am missing (to start the cycling process and such) is 2 power to add current to the tank. Now I found these on amazon:
Amazon.com: Marineland Ml90509 Maxi-Jet 400 PRO, 110/500GPH: Pet Supplies
and order the 110 GPH
and 160 GpH
to put on opposite ends of the tank. Is that all I need to get started?
