  1. Default New tank setup help!


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello there all! I am FrightyDog! (little soething about me!)
    I am a resident of southern California and fan of animals all around! I have kept everything but rodents (so far). I am just rekindling the flame for saltwater fish! I am open to many ideas because i am quite new to this...onto my questions!
    ---Details
    I am going to be starting a 65 gallon saltwater tank! It still has not been setup but I am getting it Thursday. I would love to know great colorful fish to be added to it! Whether I want a reef or not doesn't matter because for the start I will only have Live rock. I want to know what devices to use to help it be clean and help check water parameters. It is an overflow also. I would like to know the best type of fish for me to have! Including inverts or plants if you think would be good. I had a 25 gallon (still do) before upgrading. Many fish perished in here. I had bad experiences from being inexperienced. I killed a lionfish and sea cucumber along with other non poisonous fish! So I would like to maintain these nice guys . Also for any SoCal residents I want to know the best fish stores down here. They are all pretty much similar but I have yet to find the golden snitch!
    ---Summary
    -What devices are needed to help maintain a healthy tank and fish?
    -What inhabitants should I add to the tank?
    Thank you for your time!

    For some fish suggestions, I would refer you to the below link form our salt water blog here

    As far as other equipment, that would depending on the type of aquarium you want to end up with. At the minimum, some powerheads for good flow around the rocks (two or three powerhaeds at around 750 gph would work), and a HOB skimmer rated for a much larger tank. There are a few models of Aqua C ramora skimmer that would work great for you.

    If you want to set-up a sump, I can post a few links to help with that as well
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
