Hi and thank you for your input in advance.
I am embarking on a pretty major project which will include two 120 60 X 18 X 27 show tanks with hopefully some sort of sump tank setup for filtration.
I am not 100% convinced that I want to do a marine aquarium... and if so, probably would prefer fish versus reef tank.
So... my questions.
I need to order the tanks asap, so I need to decide whether I want to spend the money for the corner overflow tanks (perfecto)... or just go with reg show tanks.
I love color, goldies are my passion... but thought I'd try something new... (perhaps).
Beyond the cost of the tanks.... I have a $1500 startup budget for the filtration systems, gravel, sand, rock, coral... or whatever it may be...
I am seriously leaning toward fresh or simple fish marine.
Specific thoughts on how to set this two tank plus sump system up?
I have limited marine experience in that I had a successful marine aquarium several years back. I had some coral and mostly fish in the tank.
Thanks in advance.
