well, I decided that another 55gallon fish tank would be too much for my little military dorm room, so I sold the tank and stand (that's as far as I got) to a buddy down the hall. but he wants to go SW, and I'll innevitably wind up helping him set it up. so, instead of the 55gal, I chose to setup my spare 10gal as a reef tank.
I ordered this skimmer
this thingy to purify the water before I mix it.
This thing to attach to the skimmer
bought this powerhead locally
bought a heater locally
will buy rock locally
bought salt mix locally
Am I missing anything? I was planning on running the tank with the skimmer as the only external filter, and just using sand/rock for the bio load, but the guy at the LFS looked at me kinda funny when I told him that, he said that having another filter would be better.
Oh, since I know you'll ask, I want to stock two ocelaris(sp?) clowns, maybe a firefish, and a couple of anemones, there isn't much for corals around here, but you can be sure I'll be coming around posting pics before I buy, and asking advice.
anyother suggestions on a tank that size? stocking? equipment? words of caution? anybody want to call me an idiot
? I don't care, let me have it!
