New Tank

So I'm setting in a 75g RR tank with a glass top. I'm going to have a sump, heater, filter, and protein skimmer going as well as 2 power heads. Besides the obvious sand, fish and livestock what other equipment might I need?

Extra heater and pumps, makes water changes easier. A light for the sump, buffers, tubing, and really just a lot of ends truthfully. You got most of the big things covred

Good point about making the water changes easier! I'll look into getting another heater and pump

Ditch the glass top for better CO2 exchange. More oxygen is a good thing. Depending on the powerheads, two might not be enough. I had 3-4 in my 55 before I upgraded to my MP40s.

I honestly wasn't even thinking about CO2 exchange. That's a very good point. I'll probably get 2-3 good power heads so I don't have too many going. Do you recommend the MP40s?

I am a huge fan of all of Ecotech's products. If you have the extra coin, it is worth every penny.

Do you run it all through reeflink as well?

I actually do use the reeflink. Not as often anymore, but it is great piece of equipment.

What's the reason that you no longer use it as much?
