Research is a great thing. I spend a lot of time researching everything I do. My 4 boys love seeing all the cool pics lol.
I love a healthy debate... so now I am searching HOB
protein skimmers, while in the meantime I am going to try my in sump one in the refugium while I am cycling the tank. Right now I don't even have any beneficial critters that I know of.
I have a tank, a sump that is plumbed, sand, and some live rock. Still working on getting some more LR
. I ordered some lights from my LFS
and they never came in, so I am on a hunt for those too. I originally was going to buy a unit of 4 power compacts and 2 Metal Halides, but he didn't have any bulbs for it. I have been reading a lot of posts on the dimmable LED
's on ebay/amazon and it perked my interest, but not 100% sold on them yet.
Thanks again for the help!
