2217 isnt expensive, $149.99 - I can deal with that or more. Maybe Im just desensitized to cost after having my reef tank, but this tank seems like its going to be cheap!
What kind of turnover should I have? 5x?
I will be going with 4x39W.
Whats everybody's thoughts on the substrate. I hate to reask questions ( i spent the last few days reading) but I was also considering the stuff used on Golf Courses (cant remember the name, have to look)
If I do decide to go with the bucket from aquariumplants, I am just going to only that, and not mix it. Sound good?
