Long time aquarium junkie in freshwater and making the jump to saltwater.
Budget is an issue. That being said, I dont want to skimp on equipment. My goal is a reef display with a few fish. So metal halide is the option here. I dont want to spend my money on a ready made hood. I want to build my own.
Can someone direct me to the right fixtures... ballasts and bulbs that I will need.
Is it safe to build from wood?
the tank i will attempt my 1st saltwater venture is 33 gallons. Is this too small?
Its the standard 36x18x12
ps. great site. kudos to all involved.
