Hmm.. I cant think of a mesh that would work without rusting over time that is small enough to be of any use. I'd like a marble star, but if it's legs are going to get eatch up by the power heads then that's no good lol

Depends on the style it is. Most have a cover for their heads now, even the knock offs have them. And some come with small enough heads that its not an issue.

I love the Purple Dottybacks that look really bright pink! So different looking. I would think you could get away with one Dottyback if you were selective about your other fish.

Well, my money situation keeps changing so its gonna be some time. I think I'll be getting some items for Christmas then moving forward after that. I'm also looking into Craig's list all the time for deals and such. I will have this tank!

Thanks everyone. Ill most likely wake this post up from the grave when the times comes. Ill also be creeping around admiring everyone else's setups. I'm so excited but I need to stay calm and say "good things happen in time" or whatever that saying is lol.

Don't fret! I started looking into SW tanks over a year ago, and just last night did I finally get my tank running! SW tanks are a journey, not a destination, so enjoy the ride :) I should take my own advice, been just about ready to pull my hair out these past few days with this tank lolol

Sorry, Double post.

What do you guys think of the Red Sea Max 130 compared to my current would be 25gallon DT and 20gallon sump.

Red Sea Max 130

Looks to be pretty dirty, and im wondering if there is extra rock not in the tank because that does not look like 60 pounds to me.

Anyway, I like how the tanks look, and im all for not having to spend the time and money on DIY. But what do you think of the equipment?

Im also thinking a tank like this is better for corals and will maybe allow me to add a few extra fish then planned.

She said it is still available. Should i make an offer for $400 since Its gonna require alot of cleaning?? Is there any extra hardware besides the RO/DI, and maintaince items i would need if i go this route?

Edit: just realized this is only the 130 but I was looking at the 130D before I found this.

Anyone?

Make an offer on used red sea or continue with the DIY. If DIY is the way to go then i need to finish up plans by the 13th as ill be going to the well known PA and online retailer LFS that is having a big sale this month.

Thiose are good systems. Its always good to buy something already out together for you, no doubt about it. And if you were to try and get all that stuff yourself, its a good bet it would be close.
