Yes I see. Perhaps it's best to have a little of each. I'm planning a layout for a 50 gal
that I just ordered yesterday. Know of any great links to help with laying out a tank?
I'm also looking in to artificial coral reef pieces that I've seen on the internet. They're pricey but in a 50 gal
. I'll probably only need one of the medium size.
I'm getting a solid oak stand made for the tank. The stand comes well sanded and then I'll apply two coats, maybe three on the top surface, of classic oak polyurathane. I refinished an oak mantel, c. 1885, I purchased at an auction for $30. What a steal. It looks beautiful now.
