I've just started up my 55g last night. I purchased it intending for it to be a FW
tank, but after looking at SEVERAL pics from the showcases here, I had to have a SW
! I've been doing research for several weeks, I feel like I have a saltwater overload in it! Anyways...
As of now, I have an Aquaclear 70 in it, as well as the filter that came with the tank (I plan on replacing it next week with another Aquaclear 70). I also have two Koralia 2's, the heater it came with, 60lbs of CaribSea sand, 38lbs of base rock (will be getting about 20lbs of live rock next week), and I think that's about it.
One thing I am compltely clueless on is the skimmer! I'll need the HOB
kind. One day, after my 2yo daughter and 1yo son have grown out of their destroying every in sight stage I plan on doing a sump.
I'll post some pics of my progress later on today... since I'm new to the SW
world, I have no problem with advice, anything to make this process smoother and easier would be helpful. For the last few days I've had SW
Any suggestions on the skimmer?
