To give you an idea: The main form of filtration in a saltwater tank is Live Rock, Live Sand and a Protein Skimmer. Therefore, the canister filter that comes with most of these will end up collecting dust (believe me, I know from experience). Usually the light system is ok for rudimentary saltwater fishkeeping, but if you want to keep corals or other inverts, most of the time you have to upgrade the lights.
What are your ultimate plans?
Hey, thanks for the info.
I want to get some clown fish eventually, maybe a small coral. not 100% sure exactly what i want at the end, just thought id get a good tank and start from there. ive sorta changed my mind about the aqua one 620, im thinking of getting a juwel rio 125, they look good quality, but are slightly more expensive, do you think they are any good for my needs?
