30 lbs. Base Rock
10 lbs. Live Rock
Fluval 300 watt heats
Topfin 60 gallon
Lighting - First will have a normal industrial floresent light but will upgrade to a Double Bright LED
later (are they good? would they allow me to have basic corals later down the road?)
Bucket of salt mix
saltwater Test kit
Sounds good-except maybe a stronger filter? Just my suggestion for better filtration.
Not sure about the LEDs but I would think they'd be alright since most people use LEDs or antics or some blue type of light, I would believe (I'm not a saltwater person!
Everything else sounds good, good luck!
