Please recommend a tank size and setup for me, Here are my parameters:
$2000. maximum first year cash outlay.
Buy a complete setup or assemble components, no DIY
experience, 15 year FW
Prefer Reef Tank, corals, inverts with minimal fish.
Goals: self-education, personal pleasure and enjoyment.
Bought 3 good books and will read and research for 2-3 months before buying.
How far should I go with my planning and design before I buy a tank? Should I be comfortable with just the big picture idea of my reef, or should I have a complete concept, down to every last critter in the tank?
