That might be the best idea, although I'm hesitant to bring my fish to the LFS
and have him go in the general circulation tanks. THe local LFS
does have a small reef tank that is separate from the store tanks. I did have quite a bit of die-off from the Tampa Bay live rock but I think I was part of that problem, I know a lot more now! Unfortunately there really aren't any local LFS
's with decent live rock, most of what they have looks like base rock.
I've looked at the SW
showcase forum and a lot of the 30 gallon reefs seem to use the 2x96 instead of 2x65, but I'm probably a couple of months from actually doing this so I've got a while to make up my mind.
What skimmers would folks recommend for this size tank?
Still no real ideas on other fish yet....
