I'm trying to plan on how I will go about buying my essentials. I'm 15 years old and on a tight budget. Right now, I'm in need of a good lighting system, an RO
unit (I'm using tap water now unfortunately), an overflow box/sump/return pump, and a protein skimmer. My 60 G is up and running with 60 lbs. of LR
, 40 lbs. of Live Sand, a half a dozen snails, HOB
Whisper Filter, and a small power head. My water parameters are set and I'm probably going to add a Yellow watchmen goby very soon. The thing is, I need to know what I should get after I get the fish. The RO
/SI system, sump and skimmer, or lighting. My plan as of now is to get the lighting last. I have a small light that'll work for now. So my question, should I get the RO
or skimmer/sump/overflow box/return pump.
Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated
