    Hi and good evening all.

    I have a few questions I would like ta ask and would love to hear back from any one about there ideas,experiances and thoughts ok.

    I have 3 90 gallon tanks and have ideas for all 3 but would like to here back from you on how you would set them up and what you would stock them with ok.

    Q 1- 1st 90 gallon I would like to set up a fish only tank with minimum corals.

    your suggestions and ideas on how you would set it up from the ground up sump equipment lighting, livestock etc.

    Q 2- 2nd 90 gallon I would like to set up a reef only tank with some fish.

    your suggestions and ideas on how you would set it up from the ground up sump equipment lighting, livestock etc.

    Q 3- 3rd 90 gallon I would like to set up as a predator fish tank.

    your suggestions and ideas on how you would set it up from the ground up sump equipment lighting, livestock etc.

    So I hope everyone on Aquaria Canada get in on this one have fun and I just may use some of your ideas .

    i'd suggest you run all of them seperately so they can be threated differently...
    will definitly cost more to run.. but will be easier ( in my mind ) to manage some of the nuisance in some tanks.. from phosphates to nitrates.

    so I suggest 3 of everything.. so sumps, skimmers, heaters, lighting ..
    a fish only tank doesn't need 600w of lights.. but a coral reef loves it.
    they each required their own tailored setups.

    Cool Thanks for the offer Dark.

    I may take you up on that offer some time LOL.

    Redbelly also said he would help with some stuff.

    Yes I know it is going to be a long journey cause I am a newb and have no idea on were to start but I am gonna Get R Done L0L.

    First things first need to get tanks drilled and get the studs for the basement and start the framing cause my basement is unfinished I have a blank canvas so anything goes but 1 step at a time.

    And thank everyone else that has replied and given there thoughts on the project keep the info coming cause with Knowledge there is power and another person to help the next newb that comes along.

    anyways cheers all
