I was out and about all day looking at set ups. I was informed that I can not keep anemones with corals
. They also said I shouldnt keep soft coral with the hard coral. So I am thinking about one clown fish ( saw one today that thought some coral was his anemone) two cardinal fish, a gobie, couple shrimp, and crabs. ( after several weeks of cycling)
I saw a Jebo or odyssey set up, 25 gal
with the wet dry filter intergraded in the top and PCL with the matching stand for $279.00 I really really liked it, it aslo matched my bedroom decor (silver and black), but I remember how the ecylpse was and is so I guess Im sticking with my traditional tank.
Ok so heres my plan now
These are what I am sure of ~lol~
They also said I should use a powerhead. Any suggestions? The Jebo has a powerhead and protein skimmer together, is that ok?
I am researching lighting, Jebo has a good price but after reading up on them they might not be such a good deal.
Any reasonably priced suggestions?
The pet store wants to sell me and Orbit brand for $189.00
I am also trying to learn about protein skimmers, which one would be sufficient for a 25 gal
tank with what Im looking to put in it?
Is the seaclone 100 going to do the trick for me?
I am buying playground sand and purchasing my water from the LFS
, then adding LR
, but I am wondering about base rock, I like alt of rock, so can I use about 20 lbs of that at the bottom inside and 25lbs of LR
for the rest?
I am not in a hurry to add fish, I want to get things right. Any advice or opinions are greatly appreciated!!!
