Thanks Everyone.. So I am going SW
!!! now I just need to get started.. Few more questions..
Can I mix play sand with aragonite to save a little money? For a 200Gal tank plus a 35 Gal
Also I am still wondering about the current design of my overflow and if I for some reason I need to modify.. Basically the curent design is only one hole cut through the tank at the bottom of the overflow (1" hole). I see several pics of people that have a few holes where mulit pipes are coming down to the sump or wet/dry filter.. Just really tyring to get my head around how I need to set this up. I want to do it right the first time.
The pump I have for the sump is 900 GPH
.. I also have a powerhead 802 that was just used for water movement.. Will that be ok for starters?
Once tank initial setup is done.. how many fish / Live Rock should I add to get the cycle going? Again 200 Gal
tank and a 35 Gal
Sump (235 Gal
total)? Or maybe should I only do fish first.. I want to have this as a reef tank as the coral is so amazing..
Thanks for all the help! So looking forward to getting the tank setup this weekend!!
