Chocolate chip star fish I think like 8 bucks at Petco. Not reef safe at all just so you know.

You might want to add maybe one more small bio wheel. I'm about to set up a 55 gal fowlr and I'm running 2 350 biowheels and I'm still iffy on if that's enough filtration.

I have tentative approval for converting my 40 gal long to salt. I would like to do it as frugal as possible. I need the power heads canopy and lights for sure. I will use my biowheel 350 that I am using for my FW.

One important question.. is it okay for sunlight to shine on a SW tank?

Sunlight equals algae the same as it does in a fw tank.

That looks like a Red Knob Star.
