well if it's a fish only tank you can use standard flo tubes they will be good enouth because you dont have any coral or rock that needs stron lighting for a supply as for a sump no you dont really need 1 for a fish only tank you can use an external filter or a good internal filter they will do fine but the ro/di unit try ebay

I use the Fiji LR as it is the best price for what you get. My LFS claims that Fiji is now illegal and they carry Pohmpei LR. That stuff is junk. I got 5 lb piece to see how it turned out and it is drab in color and had barely anything on it.

LOL! I think that Jack's Aquarium just uses that as an excuse so that they can sell the cheap crap and jack up their price to Fiji LR price. I went to Petland today to see what LR they had. They have a ton of Fiji that came in last Monday and also Florida round rock.
