thanx alot
i was thinking if i should go with a dsb or a plenum i suscribe to the bb idea but i want this tank to have a sand bed so shoot me your opinions.
and what will i need for water movement?
ive got about $400 to blow and want to get an r.o. or salt or ph meter or something to make my life a lil easier when it comes to curing tap water and testing and whatnot so whatever i can get under $400.
and for my refugium what substrate and what depth? i was thinking fiji mud year for the fuge but dont know how deep and how often to replace it i was thinking maybe half of it every year or so???

thanks for all the help. this sites helpful learning from people whove been beginners too :p
