I am enjoying all of the advice provided here and I have some questions about starting a 20 gallon SW
To keep things simpler, I was going to go with FOLW and then maybe get some reef creatures later as I get the hang of things.
Originally I had planned on a 75 gallon tank w/sump filter system, and went so far as to special order the tank, after lengthly discussions with my household as to if It could fit in shared family space, it was decided we dont have the proper space.
Currently I have two 20 gallon deep aquariums on a wrought iron stand, one with an aged goldfish/pleco and the other empty. When they keel over (Its been many years so far) I would like to make the top tank a SW
with the bottom one becoming a 20 gallon refugium for a filter and doubling the available water supply.
How does this sound to you guys--I have had freshwater tanks forever and I know bigger is better when starting with salt, but I just dont have the space.
