Hey reefers I’m going from 112g to 230g. My question is what is more important to get first a protein skimmer or lights? So right now I have 2 hydra 26 on my 4 ft tank and a reef octopus 150 int. the new tank is 5 ft so what should I get first to upgrade

Personally I would say lights and then upgrade skimmer as needed since lighting consistency is more important and when setting up a tank initially your bioload is likely very low and just use the current skimmer in the meantime.
