It's been a while since I posted, but I went to the LFS
to look at tanks.. The people there aren't really all that bright or helpful..
I am looking to start a reef tank and later wanting to add some clowns, corals, tangs, and a few others.. I was thinking of getting a 75-90gal tank with some lr
and was reading that I would need high/bright lighting and moonlighting for night times.. can someone point me in the right direction for how much power I may need and what kind of filter for a tank of this size?
Someone suggested that I build my own set up, but I am not really handy so I'll purchase anything I need to keep my tank fish friendly
The book I am reading is..
The New Marine Aquarium: Step-By-Step Setup & Stocking Guide -- by Michael S. Paletta
It has a great set up but was wondering if the lighting given in the examples (those who have actually read it) are enough and what should I look for along the lines of lights? The book says that lighting is probably the most expensive part of sw
tanks and says they need to be very bright to keep corals in good shape.. any advice would be great
If anyone has a tank this size and wouldn't mind giving me their specs so I can 'copy' them and take them shopping with me I would be greatful too!
