i want to setup my 55g as salt water. i have a sea clone 100 ps w/ a maxi-jet 1200, a duel bulb t8 32w fixture and a 9w uv sterilizer. i know a sump would be the best option but i was wandering what kind of filters would be the best without the sump. the reason is i really dont have the room for a sump at the moment.

thanks justin

not sure what you mean by filters? if you plan to use the sea clone thats an in sump skimmer
or has it been modified to work as a HOB? if you need to know what kind of filtration to use on a FOWLR then I would just pick up any HOB filter rated 75G just be sure to keep it clean. T8 are ok to light the tank but if you want to add easy corals later on you will want to upgrade.
good luck and please post pics of your new build:)

Seaclones have always been either/or as far as hob or in sump goes. Most people consider them underpowered. If it's fish only, you can use the emp 400s, if you're wanting to keep coral, I'd avoid the emperors, and JUST run with the skimmer.
