Hi there Aquarium Advice!
I have been in the freshwater hobby for several years now and recently found a great deal on a 125 Gal
tank and would love to try my hand at a Saltwater FOWLR
After hours of research I am a bit overwhelmed and still have many questions! I have no idea where to begin, please help.
I am considering a 125 Acryllic that already comes with a sump but is missing a pump
The sump looks like this http://images.craigslist.org/3Mf3Nc3...62444a14be.jpg
I was thinking of using an eheim 1260 but are there any alternatives? (Trying to keep costs down) Also what should go in the sump? After a lot of research I learned of Protein Skimmers and is it really necessary to have with a FOWLR
I am still unsure of the livestock but it will have a 2" sand bed and does not require a heater, temperature stays between 78-80F
Also am I missing anything else? I know there is a lot to saltwater tanks but would not mind making the commitment! Thank you
