Q&A Letter Spotlight

Jarvis (Mauritius) writes to Bob about:
Aquarium Setup Advice

Hi Bob, My name is Jarvis I live on the island of Mauritius ( Indian Ocean ).since long it was my dream to build a glass reef aquarium at a capacity of 100 gallons.While surfing on the internet I got many informations but the problem is what to choose, for example the filtration system . I would be grateful to you if you can advise me what is needed for a reef aquarium and where can I get a good drawing or plan of the installation ( i.e plumbings,pumps,etc.).Pls note that to get sea water,sand,corals ,fish etc is not a problem for me because I live not too far from the sea. Thanks more.
