Getting Started and Confused
So, I've had several freshwater tanks over the years, most recently a 55g community that I had to tear apart a couple years ago due to a long distance move. I've never went the way of saltwater before as I've always started the research and found the information confusing and sometimes contradictory depending on the source. So my thought was this time, and I am just at the research stage, to post what I think I know and get advice as to whether I am even close or not as to what I need to get started.
So here goes, going to go with either a 55 or 75 for tank size. From what I've gathered, I will need the following for this size.
Canister Filter capable of at least 300gph
Hook everything up, throw in the live rock, start the cycling process...once cycled, add fish. Am I missing anything or is there anything I don't need from the above? If this has already been asked and I missed the thread, feel free to just point me to that thread. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
