Well i am going with 55gallon tank by TOPFIN with oak stand. Using 1 bag of Instant saltwater(the bag with the "nemo, clownfish" on front for $19. Will 1 bag be eough for 55gal tank? I might just by the other 5 or 10 gal
premixed water. Anyone aganist me mixing the 2?
I am buying 2 hydor theo heaters, 150 watt. IS that too much for 55gal tank? should i just get 2 50watts?
The question for the AA informants...someone told me to get a emperor filter HOS, 400gph its $70 here. but next to that, the store had,
Canister, Rena Filstar , xP2 300gph, $130.
1 Do i need both canister and hang on side? DOnt want to spend more than $150 for filter setup.
2 Since im starting live fish only (1) tang and 3 or 4 clowns (all store bred and from same tank) , some creatures on bottom floor, which one(filter) you reccommend or any new additions i should research buying.??
3 Do i need a skimmer for this set up?
I DO NOT plan on adding major live rock, maybe 5 to10 pounds in all for 2005. I know lighting and the skimmer is important for this.
Excited to come home from work/school and be on AA reading. Any comments or can answer my questions, im all ears!
