55 to 75 Gallon Reef Aquarium Basic BUILDER WITHOUT Tank
This 55 to 75 Gallon Reef Aquarium Basic BUILDER WITHOUT Tank does
NOT include the aquarium. You can buy standard glass aquariums and stands very cheaply at the local fish store, Petco or
PetSmart. We do not sell them because they are expensive to ship and
easy to buy locally.
Just make sure the aquarium you buy is a standard aquarium (
no integrated plumbing or filtration) that is nominally 48 inches in length and anywhere from 55 to 75 gallons. The pictured aquarium is an Aqueon 55 Gallon Standard Aquarium (48.25" x 12.75" x 21").
This Basic Builder includes six of the basic products you will need to set up a reef aquarium. This is a good choice if you don't want to buy everything at once. To have a functioning reef aquarium you will need at least 20 products. Why these products are needed is outlined in our What Is Absolutely Needed For A Reef Aquarium Article. NOTE: We recommend you purchase TWO of the Hydor Koralia Nano Evolution 565 gph Powerheads.
