Hi everyone so i'm planning a 46 gal
bowfront saltwater setup. I really wanted to do a reef tank but it sounds a little intimidating at this point after all the reading I've done. So now I'm thinking FOWLR
instead. So far this is what I've purchased
Aqueon ProFlex™ Modular Sump Model 2 1100 GPH
Aqueon Submersible Pump 3000 630 GPH
Aqueon ProFlex Hang on Back Overflow 125 - 962 gph
Koralia 1050 Circulation Pump - (1,050 GPH
- 5 Watts)
Coralife Super Skimmer With Wheel Water Pump Up To 65 Gallon Tank
Coralife Lunar Aqualight Compact Fluorescent Fixture, 2X96 Watt, 36 inch
(One 96 watt Actinic and one 96 watt 10K compact fluorescent lamp
Two Blue Moon Glow LEDs
Easily removable acrylic lens cover
Black Mounting Legs
One large cooling fan
Highly polished reflector
Three on/off switches (one for the actinic bulb, one for the daylight bulb, and one for the lunar lights) & three power cords)
How does this equipment sound for my tank?
Now a couple questions please
1) Should I just use clear soft vinyl hose to connect the overflow to sump and from the return pump to tank?
2)What should I use for a return outlet where the water goes back into the tank? I defintely don't want to do pvc
. I've saw one kind online but there seems like there has to be more info about this but I can't find any. Do I need to make one? If so out of what? Should it be 2 outlets instead of one?
This so far has been the most baffling to me
I forgot to mention I have a freshwater 29g community tank and a 90g cichlid tank and the 46g I'm using for saltwater was also a freshwater before getting the 90 so I have some fairly good knowledge/experience on aquarium keeping and for a relative newcomer. Although this a whole new level without a doubt beyond my knowledge but i'm reading alot watching alot and learning alot!
