I have a 43.6 gallon tank according to the calculator I used. Tank interior dimensions are 29.5L x 19.5H x 17.5D.
I don't have much aquarium equipment left, but I did keep two canister filters.
I have a 10gallon basic home setup I intend to use as a QT.
The wife would like a clown tank with maybe 1-2 other fish in it. It will be Live rock and sand otherwise. Eventually, I would like to add maybe a bubble tip. I will need actual lighting at that point though.
I have read countless posts, books, forums in general on starting a SW
tank. I don't have a water quality report yet from my local public utility office though. I am in Cheyenne WY if anyone is familiar with their water.
I would like thoughts on what equipment I should be looking to purchase first. Do I need a sump, skimmer, etc. I have no intention of running anything in the canisters other than some carbon. Mostly just want them for the water flow. I have no powerheads, so they would be the turn-over for now.
What do you think?
Thanks for the help,
