I picked up a 20g long in the the $1/gallon Petco sales, and I'm looking at dipping a toe in the saltwater world. I'll be setting it up as FOWLR
, and looking at 20lbs of live sand and 35lbs of live rock (comments + suggestions welcome at this point).
In terms of hardware, I'm currently looking at:
- One or two Marineland Maxi-Jet 400 Pro's
- Aqueon 50 or 100W heater
- 30" AquaticLife T5 HO Dual Lamp Light Fixtures (24" 24W Actinic and 24" 24W 10,000°K)
I've always kept up a weekly PWC
maintenance cycle on my freshwater tanks over the years, so I'm thinking in a 20g tank I can do without a HOB
Any advice/comments/suggestions/alternatives on equipment would be greatly appreciated. Lighting I'm somewhat overwhelmed with, though I like the look of the dual T5's providing 48W as in the AquaticLife unit.
