Hello everyone, I am new to these forums, so please be gentle!
I am in the process of purchasing all the items so that I can set up my 55 gallon tank. *Fish & Live Rock*
Here is the list of items that I currently have:
SeaClone Protein Skimmer
Dead Rock *about 2 crates full*
1 package of Biozyme
1 Bag of Live Sand
5 Bags of Marine Sand
There are other items which I plan on purchasing, but I decided to get an opinion on certain items that are still needed for my tank.
I plan on changing the hood of my tank, since it looks very OOGLY and old fashioned (plus its broken). So I will be needing a new one.
What are the other items that are needed?
What power head will do the trick and how many are needed?
What type of lighting would be best for a live rock/fish tank?
I want to successfully set up my tank and cycle it so that I can have a healthy and beautiful tank.
(PS. Don't want to break my pockets for very expensive items, if a more reasonable priced item will do the job)
