Yep I know. I've been looking up things for a while. This is gonna be a slow build but I want to know what I'm looking for and the sump where I'm starting seems to be all up to stand size so I'm itching to at least get the tank. I'm ok with spending a little extra money.

Do one of your least aggressive fish. And don't add stuff with a bioload too fast, you'll get too much of a Trate spike.

I would get the prawn or the cardinal next. I'm not sure which poops more than others though.. I think a bigger fish would have more.
