Many of you might recognize me from the Freshwater forums. I will be moving into a new house in a few months, and I have had a 130 gal
long tank sitting in storage for a while that I really want to turn into a SW
setup. The tank is around 6 feet long, probably 30 inches wide and 3 feet tall. Those are not exact, but I would think pretty close. I had it as an FW
semi-aggressive in a previous location.
So, I understand the basics of SW
, and I am sure I can find many how to guides around here, I guess my main questions would be about the stocking.
I like "pretty" fish. I am a diver, and love the colors that I get to experiance on the sea floor. I would also love to have some pretty inverts living in my tank, primarily shrimp.
If this was ..your.. tank, what would you set up? I know the length would create a lot of room for a amazing live rock setting, but I just want to know your thoughts and opinions on what to stock it with.
I would also appretiate advice on equipment for such a large tank. I would prefer to run a sump to keep as many wires out of my primary. I also understand the cost of the critters is much higher than FW
, so I really want to get this right the first time
Thanks for everything and your advice!
