Where to start, I will be getting out of the Marine Corps soon, I injured my shoulder in Iraq, and it can not be fixed, and therefore can not be in the infantry anymore. But before I joined I was always fascinated with fish and aquariums, I've had many over the years but they have all been fresh water. I have now decided to take the plunge in to the SW
world. I have some basic questions and hope you can help, and I did read the introduction thread, and tried to buy several books, but can not find any good ones up here, and I won't be able to go home until Christmas this year, to purchase some book, if you guys have any suggestions.
Ok, I bought a 110 Gallon tank off CL
I would like to know what kind of filter/filters you'd recommended, the guy I bought the tank off swore by Fluval, and I have done lots of research on them, but the 405 series only rates up to 100 gallons, is that ok? Or do you have a better option. Also what else would you recommend for a filter to hang on the aquarium? Is it necessary?
Also what is your opinion on lighting? The tank came with out the lighting strip, so how long should I buy the light strip, should I get one with one two or three bulbs?
And anything else you can think of that I need, I need things I can tell my wife to get me for Christmas, she is so excited I have a hobby now so she has something she can purchase for me.
I'm sorry if I ask too many questions, I understand there is a lot of trail and error in SW
, I just want to get it started all correctly, so then I can start my trail and error.
Just any info you can give would be most helpful.
I hope to start contributing soon myself.
