I have been reading various info here regarding SW
Currently I have a 40g Cichlid tank, but I recently received a 50g tank (30Lx18Wx21D) I was thinking of using it for my Cichlids but I might get a 55g (48L) for that.
For some reason if I was to set-up the 50g for SW
that the shape of this tank made more sense, but I could be wrong, either way if I don't get the 55g then the Cichlids stay in their 40g.
So here are some of my questions about what hardware I need. I am thinking this tank will be FO
which ever of the two are easier for a Beginner with SW
Along with the Tank I have a 300W heater and a Fluval 405 (both New). from reading it seem like I need a Skimmer (which one?) and I still don't understand power heads completely. Do I need a power head? if so which one? the tank is missing a hood and has a Standard light, I believe this tank had FW
fish in it before I got it, what is the best way to clean it?
As for a goal (if I do SW
) being a newbie to SW
, I don't know what the fish types are with exception of a few. I would probably like a Clown Fish (Nemo, lol) then maybe something Yellow and another Blue.
Not sure what I could stock in a 50 gal
, so I would be open to suggestions.
Keep in mind this is still int he thought stage, may or may not happen, But I always thought that SW
tanks had a 'cool' look to them
