Do you have a link to these eBay LEDs?
I'm a broke college student, sooo the cheaper the better.
What wattage should I look at for my 35 hex?
Also, filtration --- I'm using a HOB
filter on my 20g now. I've heard this is useless (or a nitrate factory).
Should I stick to just live rock + powerhead + weekly water changes?
Is a protein skimmer going to be hugely beneficial?
I'm sure I could find one on CL
for like $60
