50 gallon tank set up
am from Philippines. I only have a 50 gallon with a steel stand, one submersible pump and 8500 precision air pump, 1 kilo of sand (estimate), 1 kilo of live rock (estimate).
Am planning to complete my tank by end of October. Will put clownfish and anemones and yellow tang.
What equipment do I need and particular brand will I buy. (protein skimmer and a sump).please help me.

Who? Me? I will leave this to Mike. It can be risky to make further advices in marine apart from doing more researches which Frank actually did for almost several weeks. Now that, Mike is here, I know marine beginners won't easily get disappointed as none of the marine threads will have zero replies.:wink2:

If I know Frank, I'm just hoping he finally got an answer to his problems: Mike.:mrgreen:

Anemones will prosper from good lighting. I'd think about getting a metal halide light or plan on getting high wattage T5's if possible. Probably need about 300w or more. The fish won't mind what type of lighting you have. What brands do they stock in your area? Jebo? coralife? current? This is for all equipment as it's hard for me to say "get a Euroreef skimmer" if they are not available.
