Items needed for 260 gallon fowlr tank
I am trying to come up with a list of all of the things I will need to start up an 8 foot, 260 gallon fowlr aquarium. This is my list so far:
Predrilled 96” (260 gallon) tank with overflows, stand and canopy
2-3 buckets for acclimation
50 gallon garbage can for water changes
90 gallon sump
Return pump (external for returning filtered water to tank)
Power heads (2 for tank)
Submersible pump (1 for mixing salt in water changing container)
Flexible Tubing and clamps
Synthetic Sea Salt mix
Heater w/ thermostat (one for tank, one for water changing container)
Gravel vacuum/Water changer
Power surge protector
Air pump with airstones
Thermometers (1 for tank, 1 for water changing container)
Filter media and bags: Nitrate remover, phosphate remover, activated carbon
Can anyone think of anything else that I will need? Thanks!
200+lbs of Live Rock
Powerheads for an 8ft tank I would look at, at least 4 perhaps 6, that is going to have to be 2 massive powerheads to move that amount of water.
Air pump and airstones not so much required unless you want to run an algae scrubber.
