View Full Version : Im back!! Well starting to obsess... Need equipment recs please

After a break, and nothing left over, Ive caught myself looking at tanks again. So much has changed in the past few years in lighting and equipment its scary as hell to try to get a handle on again.

Thinking of going with a 24L X 24W and 12H tank. About 30 gallons in tank, and of course a sump. Last time I cheaped out on a bunch of stuff, and hated it. LEDs were just coming into play that were working. This time Id like decent quality equipment. Thinking of SPS mainly, with a fish or two max. What would everyone recommend for lighting and skimmer to start.

Thank Guys!!!

Heya, check out the local so - cal forums, found here:


As far as skimmer, I have a nice Vertex Omega 130i that is in great condition selling $175

depends on budget for light. Have a price range you want to say in?

I also have a free stand if you want, plenty of space to house your sump.

My best advice would be to start w the stand, and build from there. take your time.
