Hey everyone! To those who know me, it has been a long time since I've posted. I'm back to get some help starting a saltwater aquarium!
Firstly, I've been thinking about starting with a 50-55 gallon long tank (Based on the fact that there is more room for error and more fish choices). Is this a good size? Should I go bigger? Smaller? Different shape?
I'm looking for a good quality filtering system, but not one that is excessively expensive or overly bad. Would you recommend a sump? Does that mean a hole would need to be drilled? Total cost of a good sump?
Should I look into live rock? I know it only adds to the cost, but it sounds like it would complete the "ocean" look I'm going for. Your thoughts?
Fish ideas. I want a Flame Angel, and I will do anything
to make that happen. Of course, I'm not getting it anytime soon, but I do want it eventually. Anything that can coexist with that? Is this the dream of a lunatic?
What total cost range would I be looking at? I don't really want an extremely high-tech tank, but I don't wanna be the cheap-o that can hardly keep his tank together, know what I mean?
I will probably come up with more questions later, but I think I gave you enough of them for now.
Thank you so much! This means a lot!
