Getting Back into The Hobby-Help on setup please

Hi everyone,

I would like to get my hands wet again after a 3 year break. Because of weight and placement reasons I would like to do a 30 gallon fowlr. I would like to avoid a sump. Can you give me some advice on filtration? I would like to avoid a canister but would like decent reliable and serviceable equipment. I plan on doing water changes 25% every other week while vacuuming the substrate. Skimmer, hob, substrate and lighting recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Things and understanding changes over time as does new equipment so I wanted to check the pulse of the hobby right now....

I will be using rodi.

Plenty of LR and frequent PWC`s would suffice if you are not going to get a sump. Maybe a HOB skimmer.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
