We have a 40b planted tank... Put a lot of time, research, effort, and money into it and love it. It's a great tank size IMHO
. Just set up a 25 gallon saltwater tank with a 10 gallon sump/refugium and 27 pounds of LR
. Now, I sit and look at my planted tank and imagine how incredible it would look as a saltwater full of rock, sand, and coral.
