Well, I've wanted to get a 55 gallon for a while now, and I think I'll finally be able to get one. I've found one on craigslist, 100 for everything.it comes with a hob
filter which I'll use until I can afford what I want to do in the long run.
What I want to do eventually is a sump, with the overflow of the aquarium going down a 4" pvc
pipe with mechanical filtration (filter floss) and under that sine cheap biological filtration because why waste the space. Once it gets to my sump I'm making a fluidized bed filter with k1 kaldnes. I'm probably going to use a 20 high or 20 long. If I can find one though, I'd rather use a 29/30. The most expensive is the k1 Kaldnes, about 70$ for 25 liters shipped. Also I need to find a decent enough, quiet air pump to fluidize the k1.
What am I missing? I'm wanting to order since manzanita driftwood and use pool filter sand for substrate.
Thanks for any input and advice
