I've been looking to set up a SW
tank for a long time now and now that I finally have the space/time/money, I think I'm ready to take the plunge.
The goal is to set up a FOWLR
aquarium with inverts. I plan on holding off from corals for quite a while until my level of experience goes up.
Right now I've got my hands on a 40gal breeder style aquarium (36 1/2"long x 18"wide x 17"high. The current plan is to get an Aqua C Remora skimmer, 2 Maxi-jet MP600's, and 2 Pro-Heat Titanium IC Heaters (http://www.marinedepot.com/aquarium_...um.asp?CartId=
I'm a little lost when it comes to deciding what lighting system to get. I was looking at this one: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...&N=2004+113175
; however, I'm not sure if that's really a good choice or not. It would end up being about 4watts/gal
. However, since the breeder aquarium is pretty shallow, I'm not sure if that light would be too overpowering.
Would it be recommended to add another source of filtration outside of the LR
Any advice or comments or suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
