Hi, and welcome to! :welcome:

That's a start, but you won't need a heater with a bimac, only with a tropical octopus.

We find sumps very usuful - have you looked at Colin's Equipment List for guidelines on equipment? Lots of good info there. Just click on Ceph Care above for a list of our articles.



Yes, thats great as a start, but you might need a lot more than just those. What type of water will you put in your tank? You may need an R/O unit system to filter water to make it pure, and fresh. And then add the salt.
To read salinity levels you should get a hydrometer. For water temperatures you should get a thermometer for your tank.
Plus a little lighting wont hurt if it's not too bright. So I would suggest you check on the equipment list on this site. Everything on that list s something you might wanna get. And yes, sumps would be wonderful if you can get one.
