Need Ideas on a Simple Filtration setup for 46G Bow

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I have my Spec V doing nicely in my office at work and now I want to work on a 46G bow front I have at home. I'd really like to keep this tank mainly Coral and possibly a few little fish, peppermint shrimp,and snail.  The Stand I made for it is more for support and looks rather than functionality so there is no way I can even fit any type of fuge, filtration etc inside cabinet. 

 

My main question is, can I get by on a 46 Gallon with a larger Aquaclear HOB setup with some Filter Floss, Bio, and Purigen and call it a day?   will I need a skimmer, overflow, etc.

Yes, I think that can work.  You can use a Prizm Pro hob skimmer.  Its not the best but if you are only having a few small fish then it should be ok.
