O believe me, I fully educate any person who looks after my pets. I have a rabbit and 3 cichlid tanks, and they leave with unbelievable knowledge.

I have another question: Can someone help me figure out how much base rock and live rock I should get. I want to cut down on the LR cause I am one of those environmental gurus.

In that case, make your own. check out my thread in this forum. Other then that you would need 20 to 25 lbs of base rock and 5-10 lbs of live rock.

Thanks thincat! I have another question. I want to get people ideas on what to have in a 32g FOWLR tank. You could add corals as well. Here it is: If I gave you a 32g tank for a saltwater set up what would you put in it?

**EDIT** And where can you buy pre made sumps -that you don't have to drill you tank- at?

I have a question about clams now, do you need a certain amount of lighting? I think so, but can someone help. Are there easy clams to start with?

Clams need a LOT of light and really good water. I wouldn't attempt it if you don't have MH

Okay I was just waying my options so they are not for beginners then.

I also might be getting my hands on another larger tank. I don't know the size but the people I am getting it from think its between a 55 to 90 gallon tank. So I will be getting that for free. It just needs to be resiloconed with fish safe silocon!

How do you go about resiloconing?
