    Hi people I'm new to this forum I'm currently keeping tropical fish which unfortunately my tanks temperature dropped and the fish now have velvet I've lost a few loved fish and lost the heart to keep going with the tropicals so I've decided I want to turn my tank into a small reef tank with a few fish so I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction of what I need to do. Lights pumps etc I want to keep it as simple as possible and any info I'm very grateful for thanks guys

    Kind regards

    Steve

    First thing you will need to do is decide what type of reef you want to keep

    Fish only or with corals
    Then if you go for corals soft or hard?

    And shame about you current take

    Some great skimmers out there
    I prefer the Nyos ones
    But have used Bubble Magus in the past asnd liked them too

    You can use overflow boxes but drilled is the better option
    And actually quite easy to do. Though nerve wracking
