E-bay has some great deals on aquarium supplies. You might want to check that out. I just got a bio-wheel 330 for 34$ shipped. Not to bad.

I would recommend aquaclear filters for HOB filters. They give you a ton of media options and are very quiet.

I have between 120-130 lbs in my 75 and I think it is too much. I would have to have more sand real estate for a clam or other corals. Put 30lbs of LR in it and then get some dead rock if you want more. If not run a HOB filter. HOB filters are good to run carbon if you dont have a sump. Look at the big Aquaclear line of filters. These have wide bodies and are great for a small refugium. You could get by with 1 lb per gal but keep watch you bioload.

LR is just nice because it filters and it looks nice too

Ill check ebay--but i really dont like using paypal. Plus with all the scams now a day--i just want what i paid for. ya know.

I want to have a yt after i add my pair of clowns...but with all the yt people telling me how aggressive they are..im skeptical now. Anyone know of another tang for 55gal?

Which one is less noise, canister or HOB?

My yellow Tang is not aggressive at all. Most say to add it last but they are not overly agressive. My damsels are another story though.

I had a small yellow tank in my 38 gallon a few years ago. He was very territorial. He never once touched my 2 clownfish BUT did eventually kill a royal gramma.

This time I am setting that tank up with 2 percs, 1 royal gramma, and possibly a firefish. No more tangs for me.

ar..thanks. to me each week i visit the lfs the tangs are always active and doing there left to right tank swims like buy me! buy me!! hahaha some of the colors of the other tangs dont really do it for me, so the yt has really grown on me.

i really want a pair of the black/white clownfish(percs?), but i know i have to have a pair of Nemos (tankbred). I havent read any success of establishing a tank with 2 pairs of percs..unless over 120gal.

what do you think of 1 blk/white perc and 1 orange tank bred?

thanks again.

I have had good luck with sailfin tangs but, they are not as prolific at grazing as yt imo.
