    I have a 120g aquarium 42x24x30
    Aqueon 4 sump
    Octopus extreme skimmer
    1 Aqua Illumination SOL Blue LED module so I can adjust the brightness, moon phase, thunderstorm etc...

    I went with a larger return pump for stronger water flow. I didn't want a Vortec or something like it that the arms could get caught in or damaged by.

    Phosphate and carbon reactors from BRS
    40w UV (Not sure I really needed this???)

    Heater

    Am I missing something? Anything I don't need that I got>?

    There is some antectdotal questions about potential negative effects of running a UV. Most of us don't run one directly on the tank but I do use one on my external RODI water supply tank to minimize bacteria.
