I usually drain from my main and fill in my sump. That way I don't have to lift my jugs as far. Anymore I fill a five gallon bucket and have a small pump to pump the water into my filer sock.

thats one option, but MH and t5 would suffice too, just need a ton of light for clams,

research research research. be carefull with the LFS they don't always hire the smartest people. caught a guy going to sell some seahorses, to put in a tank with lions and triggers. most online sites will tell you if the fish is reef safe or reef safe with caution. and which are compatible with other reef fish. liveaquaria.com is great for that. plus liveaquaria.com with tell you what the fish and corals need to survive and thrive. Clowns are very territorial mine bite me when i put my hand in the tank. it don't hurt just makes me jump when i don't see him coming.

I woke up this morning and discovered my coral beauty dead.... ... I did a parameters check and we are all in good levels. Even trates are low.. Idk. Clowns are fine, cardinal looks good... He was fine last night when I went to bed. Cuc was all on him and when I pulled it out it was stiff and had slime coming from it's mouth... RIP lil guy...

Yeah... Sucked. He was the center piece for the tank. Tried to bully me... Lol... I thought a bug fell in... Just fed the clowns and cardinal (wanted to see if they where acting weird) and they ate fine. Saw a bristle worm. Was reddish green... Any site to identify them? Never saw it before.
