Hey everyone, this is my first post on TropicalFishKeeping!
So first off, I'd like to say that I have only 2 years of experience, running a 32g freshwater tank, and all is well. I really want to get into saltwater tanks, so I've been doing tons of research on the subject for over a week now.
To give you all an idea of what I'm looking for, I would like to have a FOWLR tank, and because of the space of the room I would like it to be in, it can only be maximum 40-45" wide.
Ok, so here's the deal I wanted to ask you guys about!
For about 550$ it would include all this:
Aquarium: 40 gallon tank, 30" x 12.5" x 23"
It comes with a nice wooden base.
Sump: 20 gallon tank,
with all the pipes necessary to connect to display tank.
Lights: 30" 4x 24 Watt T5HO 50/50 Current Usa
with 2x timers, and 2x moonlight LEDs
Skimmer: Tunze Nano DOC 9002
Pump: Eheim Compact+ 2000 (like new)
Heater: ViaAqua 300w in Titanium (like new)
Other: He said he'd also throw in a vacuum, thermometer, and other little things.
What do you guys think of this deal? I know it's easier to get a bigger tank, but considering the space limitation I have, this seems like a good option. And there seems to be a lot of really expensive items in there. So I come to some experienced reefers like you to let me know if I'm right in thinking this is a pretty nice deal!
Thanks in advance everyone!
