OK im just going to use this one post for all the questions im sure i will have during this process...
Any way I have two FW cichlid tanks and have a spare 29 Gallon just collecing dust. Have always wanted a reef tank But have been scared of price and all the rumors out their. But figured What the heck im goingt o make a run at it. from what I read I think I will do a FOWLR tank at first then when I can get a good light i will start with reefing...
equipment I already have:
29 Gallon Tank
150 watt heater
Light and hood that came with tank. (upgrad later)
So guess my 1st step is: sand. water and setting up flow (min 600 GPH)
1- when i buy power head do I figure in the filter and skimmer?
2- should i get two smaller heads or one big one? (
3- were should I place the heads in the tank? (bottom, middle, top?)
do to high cost of rock was going to buy cured rock from LFS 10 pounds at a time as cash permits thinking 35-40 pounds?
i know I need other items like SW test kit and such.
But what should be my priortiy on my first trip to the store?
