I am really trying to figure out how the whole under part of the tank works (I'm not a terribly mechanical person, but once I get the hang of it, it's all good). ReefingMadness - Thank you so much for that list, it will for sure help me immensely!
I do want to do a full reef system with some soft corals and mushrooms. Nothing too sensitive or needing expertise. So I was planning on live sand and live rock, but these are not good to start a tank with? I thought you wanted the hitch hikers and such that tagged along with the live sand/rock?
Would it be better for me to get a new reef ready tank from one of the aquarium stores?
that t5 light is pretty much perfect for coral and anemones.things are crazy expensive new and still high up there used because ppl always want them.for a easy reef set up for a sump with out going nuts is a overflow and a return pump with a long enough hose to reach the top of the display tank.
