Dimensions are 12" height 30" length. I have a few questions.
Can I use the filter media from my filters? They don't work real well so I'm going to buy a marineland 30 gallon biowheel filter and just throw in my media.
Powerheads. Can I just use one sweep powerhead?
I'm doing FOWLR
obviously but I do not have an RO
system or money for one. I kinda just want to use conditioned tapwater. At best, I can initially stock up with tapwater, and every week, do a 25 percent water change with store bought salt water. It would strictly be once a week and only 5 gallons worth.
Live rock. Anywhere I can get a good deal? LFS
is 27.99 per ROCK, my discount only makes it a measly 23.99 after tax -_- Not to mention our tanks aren't faring well lately, dunno why, we're kind of at war with corporate, but anyway!
Fish. I LOVE large groups of small fish, never been a one big fish kinda guy. Though I would die for a dwarf lionfish. Can I work with that? Or, what combination of fish, snails, and crabs should I get?
Protein skimmer. Do I need one? Not doing a sump or refgium.
Any help is appreciated, tips, advice! Minus getting a bigger tank. Rents won't let me
