    Long time hobbyist and enthusiast from Knoxville, TN. Looking to get back into the world of reef aquariums after a 2 year hiatus after having to sell my tank after moving into a smaller location. I just inherited an Oceanic 42 gallon hexagon and I'm looking to get it up and running as a small reef setup! Currently looking for lighting, a skimmer, rocks, and sand. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks! Happy to be here. I've already been perusing the dry goods section. I'm hoping to catch a Kessil on sale, but I'm open to looking for something similar and cheaper. LED is the way to go these days, IMHO. Smaller hit to the power bill and a good light return for corals.

    I'm glad to have such a large and warm forum welcome! Tanks everyone! Looking forward to getting back into the hobby. It's been TOO LONG!! Currently in the market for a good used Kessil, or something comparable on the PAR rating for this new tank. It's about 22" deep (will be about 19-20" to sandbed, now that I think about it) and I'm wanting to keep a diverse array of corals. Some montipora and acros would be awesome, but definitely some zoas, palys, shrooms, ricordea, Duncan's, etc.

    Thanks again for the warm welcome, it's nice to find a large and helpful community!

    Welcome! I'd say your best bet is the dry goods for sale forum here, or ebay. honestly there are few things you ever need to buy new. everyone wins when we buy used stuff instead!
