I will preface that I say Semi-Rookie since my son's 10 Gal
salt has been running great for 14 months
So now my daughter wants salt too.. I said, I will free up my 50 Gal
and convert it to a Saltwater tank.
So now come the questions..
my 50 has a Fluval 405, can I use it? should I use it? what is recommended?
I have a small power head, but will get another too
I know I need about 60 lbs of Live Sand, 50-60 Lbs of Live Rock (OR?)
I have a heater, I have a light that will work for now..
Tank will be FOWLR
.. maybe a Starfish or 2.. some Shrimp, and typical clean up crew stuff
No clue on fish yet..
Still pricing it all out on what I need. but needed to figure out the filtration
FYI my son's 10 Gal
has a Aquaclear 20 HOB
So what is the path I need to look at for filtration on the 50?
