Okay, I’m getting closer to getting set up for my seahorses. Haven’t gotten any reply from the Canada Seahorse people yet, but fingers crossed!
I have a question about the setup for my 45 gallon. I am wanting to keep things simple to start with, and I’m thinking I’ll only have 2 or 4 seahorses in the tank to start with, as well as the cleaning crew you recommend. What I’m wondering is, if I have live sand, live rock, and the Rena filter, is it necessary to have the protein skimmer? I was already thinking I wouldn’t need the UV Sterilizer for my setup. However, I don’t want to go short on gear to start with and regret it later… What would you say? Also (if I do need the skimmer) I like the idea of the HOT skimmers, but am concerned about the noise factor. Thoughts?
