I am planning on starting a 90-120 gallon reef tank in awhile (prob long time) and I would like to know what would be the best items to buy with the tank, ei what lights, filters, sumps, powerheads, skimmer, etc.
I've also heard that you don't need to use protein skimmers but then I hear a lot that you need them, so...
And What type of lighting? PC
, etc. is best. And how many wpg
and what degree range would be good (around 10,000 ?).
And for filtering how many gph
would be good, what sumps are very good.
And are wavemakers good?
Basically everything you need to start a reef tank.
Also info about additives (iodine, calcium, etc.) would be appreciated.
Any info on anything I missed would help too.
