I am not entirely sure what type of coral I want, so I probably need to get proper lighting for almost any type, unless there are draw backs from having two much light. I like the idea of having an anomie for a clown and the proper shrimp. I guess I could get decent lighting and stick with the species that will work with the lighting I have. LFS
has a 120 on sale with stand and canpoy for 625. I thought this was a good price. If I get the sand from Home Depot do I still need to introduce live sand as well. Do I need all live rock or can I use fake and some live rock.
So what I am down to is
Protein Filter (either Remora or CPK)
Lighting (not sure what type)
Do I need a RO
The house I am buying has city water as well as a well for irrigation. Is the well water a better solution. I guess I can test it first.
. I am a recent transplant from Houston, so I am still learing the Richmond area.
One final thing. I am a avid saltwater fisherman and catch croker,etc. in the chesapake. Can I feed my fish pieces from my catch?
I know this is alot of questions, but I need all of the help I can get. Trying not to waste money.
