Ok will try to make it to lfs this week end to see what options he has for sump, protien skimmer and ro/di filter. Also will see if i can return wet/dry filter or maybe convert it to sump that will work for (skimmer, heater, etc ) i like the ideal of tank with cover and not much fabrication and that is sized correctly for my tank.
With that said i will also see what else i can change letting him know that im going
to start my tank as a fowlr tank.
I was getting sponge, carbon, bio balls and tank blend which i believe is used to convert tap water at start. Keep in mind i havent sat down with him yet for training as he said he would do when i pick up my tank.
From listening to you people and doing more research on my own it seems that all i will need for start up with ro/di water is salt is that correct.
Also should i buy extra material for anything that i will be needing in the future. Ie skimmer
could you also guide me on how much sand you think i will need.
The tank is 110g that is 48" x 30" x 18" in size
not sure if i sould stay btwn 1" and 2" or 4" and 6"
thanks again for the help
