Just got a 20 long with a stand and would like to set up my first sw
tank. Trying to figure out what I need and trying not to got nuts spending money. I know larger tank is better for beginner sw
but already have the tank and sand and no room for a bigger tank.
Is this equipment list correct?
25 lbs live sand
25 lbs of live rock. (Is 5lbs live abs rest non live ok
2 power heads. What size? Is that enough for filtration? If not what else should I use.
Test kit. Can I use the API I use for my freshwater or do I need a diff one
Biggest question is lighting. Not sure if I want to have coral or not. I know it is a big price diff. What would you recommend for each set up
Anything else I am missing.
