Greetings, I got a hold of a 60 gallon hex tank. From what I've read the majority are against hex, but I am limited on space. I plan on moving into a house in the very near future and would love to build a in wall display.
I am torn between salt water and freshwater, but ultimately I feel salt is where my heart is.
The tank has a wooden stand with no hood/lid.
I am looking at a Eheim 2213 canister filter, some said it wont work with salt, but others do.
I'll have to build some kind of hood/lid and I have a few ideas but i'm totally lost when it comes to the lighting. I'd love to do some type of a LED
system with automatic timer and color rotation.
All the videos I see for aquariums people have all kinds of systems, which seems over whelming for a beginner. I'm wondering what I would need for a basic setup with least maintenance. Obviously i'll learn as I go that's why I am wondering if I should start out with fresh water and eventually move to salt, but then I may have to buy everything twice. Ah so many options.
