Thanks to Pasfur, Wake and many other people here I have learned a lot. Financially I am not ready to get much started towards my SW tank, yet. But the more I read, I am reading about how much better sumps are to have. I am thinking maybe this is the way I should go???
I like the idea that when you need to ad anything to your tank you just ad it to the sump tank and it will be better for the fish so it will not come in direct contact with them.
I like that most of the equipment will be hidden.
and it sounds like it is easier to maintain. BUT since my tank is not drilled, if you guys think I should go with a sump, is there a good website where I can get directions to do it?
I have already read the "understanding sumps" article and it helped a lot. but as for the actual decision of whether I should do one or not, well I am looking to you guys.
also, Is setting up a SW something that I can do in steps to make it more financial friendly? what would be the first step? I most likely have a place to send most of my fish so I should be able to empty my FW soon. The other fish I will put in a 1 1/2 gal tank, (they are my little brothers that were born after we bought his fish, so now "he" has a bunch of little babies! he would be heart broken of I got rid of them too.)
and a Q tank? what size should it be? I don't have any other tanks around so I would have to buy one.
Thanks For all the help!
