I am a newbie who has been reading a lot. I decided to go with a Red Sea Max 250. I will be adding some extra power heads to it. From what I have learned from this site I will not have to buy all live rock but I can get some dead rock and wait and I can do the same thing with sand.
I purchased a RO
float with shutoff ,
2 35 gallon containers,
one of the containers for water changes
one container to store top off water in.
3 power heads one to mix salt with
1 pump for water changes
If anyone has anyother recommendation let me know.
