I am in the process of setting up a new 90g reef and wanted some assistance with lighting and other needs. I want to keep a few fish and SPS
corals. I was thinking that VHO
would be the way to go, but did not know how many bulbs 4-6 48" bulbs as well as what type should I go with and how many.
Also for sand to get it to 2" bed depth I assume from looking at teh calculators I am going to need about 100 lbs of sand. I wanted to reuse some sand out of a 29g tank, is it worth the hassle to try and clean teh heck out of the sand?
As well setting up a a sump, I was considering converting my 30g tank to a sump. Should that be enough?
One last question, I have an aquaC remora skimmer HOB
type and will that be enough for a 90g tank or am I going to need to go bigger?
In order of time wise what would I need to tackle first so I can get my tank up and running and recycled in the 90g...
