Equipment questions!

Will a seaclone 100 protein Skimmer, 2 Bio Wheel filters, and about 40 pounds of live rock and 20 pounds of base rock. Will this suffice for now until i can upgrade my protein skimmer?

What size tank ? And what bio wheel filters? Emporer 400s or penguin? I have a sea clone 100 also and it actually works pretty good once it gets going

So if you got two that's about 140 gallons of filters so i don't see any big issues on that. The seaclone is hard to adjust but it works good once it's adjusted right. What are your fish stock plans?

I think both of those would do well . I don't see much room for anything else.

The huma and eel need a large tank and they are messy eaters from what I've heard so you wouldnt want to add too much to the tank.

What other fish were you interested in?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
