Okay, I'm going to come right out and say it. We trusted an idiot at our LFS. We bought one of those 55gal kits. You know, the one with the hood, lights, filters, heaters and stuff. We upgraded from a 20gal tall tank to the 55 gal.
I was on Yahoo!Anwsers and saw that some people had Protein Skimmers and stuff called sumps.
What all do I need for my tank. I also saw that some people had stuff called live rock and live sand, what is that? I know it helps with bio filtration, and it gives good hidey-holes for the fish, but how do you take care of it?
The LFS said that all I would need is the kit? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
-the filter that came with it TopFin I believe with 2 filters
-All glass heater
-Hood w/lights that cam with the kit
-1 empty 20gal tall tank w/filter, heater
P.S. We would also love to get some coral later on.
