I know how this hobby is...You think you want to do something one way (and save a little money) and then 1 year later, you choose to scrap that and do what you should have done in the first place. For example, lighting. Should have bit the bullet and got the more expensive halides instead of CF
. But anyway, to my question:
Please see my signature below. I have a really cheap skimmer. Should I buy a Remora Pro hang on back skimmer for my 55 gallon, or should I bite the bullet and buy a sump for my tank, and get a skimmer that would go in the sump?
It seems I need a good skimmer, but I'm thinking a sump is what I need since I want to go more reef. Any thoughts? My LFS
says I should do it right the first time and save up for a sump, and then get the appropriate skimmer for the sump. What do you think?
