I was planning for months to set up a 10 gal FOWLR
. I really wanted a bigger tank, but I live in a 1 bedroom apt and already have a 46 gal
discus tank and 40 gal
fancy goldfish tank. I found space to fit a 25 gal
tank. I am buying it next month. I have already purchased equipment for the 10 gal
that I can use for the 25 gal
. I had ordered a fission Nano skimmer. It is on back order, but now I want a larger skimmer. Can anyone recommend a skimmer that would be right for this tank, not too noisy( don't want to wake the neighbors), and not one that I have to modify too much( I'm not that handy and I would rather pay a few extra $'s than modify the skimmer)? I would want a HOB
I also have another question. The tank will have a glass top with a strip light. The tank will only be a FOWLR
so I don't need special lighting, but should I buy a different light or bulb in case I want to try corals in the future when I get good at keeping a salt water tank? I guess it would be easy to upgrade the lighting later, but if it was not too much more then I would be better off buying better lighting from the start.
Any suggestions and links to good deals on anything I could use would be appreciated. I have been planning for months. I have kept freshwater for over 20 years but never tried saltwater. I want to do it right. TIA
for your help.
