Happy New Year everyone! I'd like some thoughts on a new reef system I'm looking to buy.
A 120 gallon Oceanic Tech Series Tank/Stand combo. I'll be using it with live sand and Live Rock (I guess about 100 lbs, not sure if I can afford more). It will have an in-stand Sump filter, with additional LR. I will have an in sump Protein Skimmer, although haven't decided on which one yet. The lighting system I'm leaning towards is a Nova Extreme T-5 (8 x 54w bulbs). I was worried about the heat input of an HQI.
I've had a 29 Gallon Bio Cube for about 6 months and I love it. I know I'm jumping into the deep end of the pool with this new system, so I'd like to get any feedback or things to watch out for upfront.
Any help would be appreciated.
