First course of action would be to get Dry Rock or Base Rock from your LFS. Its not necessary to run a substrate, some go Bare Bottom.
Awesome, would you recommend any brands that are good for LED or halides in your opinion? if it costs a bit more to purchase them and in turn saves me money in electricity in the long run id rather save for a decent light, so your saying the initial cost is a bit but over extended time doesnt cost much correct?
Im letting it sit till most likely over christmas so ill have some time in deciding things,
dry rock/ base rock? is that live rock? or do u mean the crushed coral substrate?
