I have read mucho information about starting a fish only saltwater aquarium tank in the past 3 weeks. Yesterday I went to my local fish store (fish only store, not Petco and such) and this is what the outcome was. I have decided on a 90 gal
. bowfront and fish only. The sales clerk recomended these items at these prices and said that is all I would need as far as hardware. Will someone tell me if these are rip offs or if some of the systems recomended are overkill and he's just trying to make more $$?
