Someone gave me a used 90 gallon SW
setup. It has a hood with 2x175W (MH
?) , 10,000k bulbs. It also has cooling fans built into the hood.
It has the overflow section in the corner of the tank with 2 tubes coming out of the bottom of the tank and a sump. My first question is about the lighting. Will that be sufficient? I want to do a reef tank (live rock). I probably won't try corals for a while. Will I need more lighting to add corals later on? About the filtration, in that overflow section in the corner are some plastic balls like in the wet/dry filters. I've read many people here say not to use wet/dry so I guess I should just removed those balls? It didn't come with a skimmer but I plan to get one.
I just got the setup and haven't started messing with everything yet. I'm going to set everything up in the garage first to make sure there are no leaks and because I figure I'll make a mess as I learn how to setup the sump and all. I've had a number of FW
tanks before but this is my first SW
