I'm currently researching getting my first tank.
I'm thinking to start, 80 gal
. Glass tank with overflow...
Any recommendations on equipment would be welcome.
I'm getting different opinions from my LFS
's so I'm posing the questions to you:
1. If I eventually want to have a reef system, is it better to start with a FOWLR
tank, get used to taking care of that, and then getting another tank for a reef system, or can you convert the first tank easily?
2. Differing opinions on Wet Dry filtration. Two places say "oh, too much maintenance, Just protein skimmer and Live rock will be fine" Another place said, "Wet Dry with Live Rock is no work at all. Very simple."
I'm still reading and doing research, have the books, but I really like reading this site. Lot's of great info.
Thanks in advance.
