    Hi guys

    Starting a tank and need some items:

    Live Rock 30kg or so (cured)
    Skimmer, 800L or so rating (Display tank is 270L, + sump) (GOT ONE NOW)
    Return pump 3000L
    Heaters(s) for sump
    RO UNIT

    Ready to collect the equipment and pay if you have the items listed above. LR i will collect in 2 weeks time or so after it's set up

    why such a big return ? a 3000l/ph will be more than enough, some might even suggest smaller.

    I agree, return pump is way too strong for that size tank. A 2000-3000lph is fine. Also, skimmer is too big. You need a skimmer rated 1,5 - 2x the water volume, anything more is a waste. A Reeftek TS1 will work with a low/normal bioload as it is rated for 400l, otherwise a TS2 (might be too much though, rated for 750l) as you might have a big sump.

    Thx Tobes...

    Well does it not make sense to get say a 1000l skimmer for now and then i can upgrade to a bigger tank later and not need a new skimmer? I can get a Tunze 2100 skimmer at a nice price for example
