new tank

hi, I did kind of start a planted tank about a year or so ago and it was hijacked by an impulse buy (juvie long fin oscar needed to grow out before going to the monster tank)

now I am planning on starting fresh and I am looking for advice.

I am going to tear down my reef tank, water changes and what not have become a pain, and a crash causing me to loose 80% of my sps (hard corals).

so I have a 46 gallon tank, with 175watt metal halide and 2x 39watt t5 lighting. the bulbs are 14,000k and 10,000k.

the filtration is a sump that will have its wet/dry componets put back into play.

I also have a Red Sea CO2 kit.

now what should I do for on the filter, substrate, how limited on plants with the lighting.

I'm an open book with empty pages
