I have recently decided that after 4 years of a FW
tank...that it's time to enter the arena of the SW
hobbyist. I have read some of the posting on this site and I feel I found the right place to join and be part of!
I have a 50 gallon tank and I am going to do a FOWLR
. So for the past week I have been reading, researching, reading and researching and talked to the LFS
Here is what I am currently thinking about upon startup (not going to state the obvious like a heater, hydrometers, test kits etc):
Current USA Orbit
Dual Daylight and Dual Actinic and Lunar Light
I know to stay away from crushed coral.
wasn’t too high on sand…sugar-sized in particular.
Instead he recommended a slightly bigger size grain…like half the size of an oatmeal flake.
Any suggestions or recommendations are appreciated.
With my current FW
setup I have a Fluval 305. I was planning on using that for filtration but read something that made me think that with the LR
setup, a protein skimmer, a power head and a cleanup crew (that cracked me up when I read it)…I may not need the Fluval? True? False? Wouldn’t hurt to have it? Could serve as a power head…as it does promote good circulation?
Enough for now, don’t want to make this too long…plus I need to get ready for a picnic we are hosting!
