anybody have a trustworthy link for articles on lighting. This way I can learn first hand what the requirements are for what types of tanks.

Alright everyone, wife wasn't happy with a 29 gallon, so we got a 50 gallon tank today. I am getting ready to place my order for stuff I want to double check that I will be ok.

Crushed Coral- x2 40lbs bags
Florida Crushed Coral for Aquariums

RO/DI
AQUARIUM CORAL REEF RO + 2 DI 150G REVERSE OSMOSIS PUR WATER PURIFICATION SYSTEM | eBay

Protein Skimmer

Salt

Heater

I still need to find lights that will support some clown fish anemonie's. I don't want to go really expensive but can probably get away with a $200 unit.

Please recommend some powerheads.

I will get my live rock after I get this order in.

Anything else recommended?

scratch the anemonie keeping. Just need the above list checked. I am doing FOWLR. to much of a pain being in the military to invest in all the lighting to just loose any coral or anemonie's in a long move.

1200gph in a 50g tank? Might blow things around a bit. Being over 500gph is a good thing, but you'll get to a point where you'll blow the substrate around. 500-900 would be a good number to hit for just a fish tank.

Everything is ordered. Next week I should be starting the process of getting it going. Few more questions

Will base rock become alive without live rock seeding it. Again I have almost 8 weeks (vacation coming up) before I add anything swiming to the tank.

I am trying to build up a colorful stocklist. this is FOWLR, Are Coral Beauty Angels and Cherub Angels compatable.

The Base Rock will become Live in a sense. It will get bacteria that helps the tank out. But unless you seed wtih lil feather dusters, and hitch hickers of LR, you don't get that bio diversity. One piece of Live Rock would be all you need to get the seeds to grow in your tank. But, you do not have to have LR to get it going.
You should not mix Angels of the same genre. It can be done, but you'll have to watch them for a few days to make sure they arent' going after each other.
