I am in the planning stages for a 55 gallon FO
tank, I have read everything I can find and there seems to be a drastic variance in what to do, when to do it and how. Here is what i'm planning:
hood (probably a 48" or 2x24" Fluorescents )
(most likely "southtown playsand" )
Live rock, Fiji (ordered via the net as I can't find any in my area)35 lbs
Pegiun Bio wheel
2x100watt submersible heaters
Also considering a Red Sea Prizim skimmer. Thoughts ? is it nececcary ?
Are the Coralite/zoo-med/triton bulbs effective(worth getting)?
10,000k 40 watt or 20,000 super daylight ?
Should I have a powerhead or two for H20 movement ?
Seems like alot of stuff to HOB
.(Due to the stand and where the tank is I cant do a sump)
The reason for the Bio wheel is a limited amount of LR
, (can't wait to tell the wife how much I need to spend on "rocks")
I have like 1000 more questions but I'll leave it at this tonight.
Thanks for any input,
