Hey everyone just wantes to say hello here from Maryland. Also my girlfriend and I wanted to start a project together and we thought a saltwatrr aquarium would be perfect for both of us to do. Im not completely new to this. I used to have the red sea max 130d AIO tank but now im looking for something that I could build and take my time with before we start any cycling. Im trying to find the right tank for us. I want to do at least a 20 gallon but I dont know how big I want. I want to keep the cost of some of the equiptment down and I would like to stay away from a sump if possible just because I dont have any local reefers to give me a hand with stuff and designing everything. If you all need more info just let me know this is all I thought of off the top of my head. I know I want to do most softies/LPS corals with a pair of clown fish.
