thanks for the help, ive been on this forumn all day, addictive hoby. So in the end using either of these options will work:
option 1: skimmer, filter(lr rubble, macro, no b wheels), 2 powerheads
option 2: canister and bio wheels, bio balls(do these go in the bio wheels)?
(better lighting a must on both)
This will be a long term tank, already want to upgrade size, but when we sell our townhome, and get a house with more room, so I say in the next couple yrs.
Right now my 3 cromis, 1 clown and clean up crew are doing fine, it was just that one clown fish that I had to return because he was laying to the bottom, and I thought I saw some white spots so did not take a chance since I am still new.
