Alright everyone its been a logn time since i last posted here maybe like 6 months or more my fresh water tank did so great iv decided to give my fish to my best friend whom I know will take good care of my oscars. But now i got all the water drained from my tank, washed it out cleaned it up and got my filter all cleaned and washed and my bio wheels rinsed off. heaters cleaned Bought 3 bags of 20lb live sand and 1 live rock i never knew how expensive rocks were I was going to buy 3, but that was going to cost me 60 dollars lol i gotta wait till I get an another pay check to get more live rock. But my real question is iv read the guides on this part of the forum and talked to a few people that i know who have reef tanks, and what im really torn on is light quality of the tank.... im not sure waht to do, i mean if all i got is live rock and fish with sand ill be ok with normal flourest lighting wont I? and if I do decide to get coral one day... what type of light would you all suggest..
god this is going to be a long post im sorry guys theres alot of information to take in here, I want this tank to be as as well as my freshwater did.
Also the thing id like to know is this whole waterflow and the powerhead pump i belive thats what it is, i was going to buy one today, but i started thinking and was like wait my 7in lonf bubbler moved water like no other do i need to buy that???? but while looking at the tanks of other people iv noticed no one uses one in their tanks so is there a reason for that? if thre is ill go out and get the pump tomorrow. ERg sorry for the really long post and the typos from the very deep place below the earths crust and thanks alot for the help.
