    Max fish count in a reef tank.

    I have been looking into how many fish I can fit in my 200ltr tank. Mr. Internet says the general rule of thumb is an inch of fish to 5gal of water or something along those lines. Will research it more when the time comes, and of course end up over populating anyway as I'm just greedy like that...

    Bringing Dead Rock to life.

    Thanks RiaanP. That's good to know. I plan on designing my reef with dead rock and gluing them into position in segments so its easy to lift and place in the tank. Then give it the sand and some small pieces of live rock. I also plan on pre drilling some holes for coral frags. And making plugs...

    Bringing Dead Rock to life.

    Hi All. I know live rock can be used to bring back dead rock. But would sand taken from somebody else's tank do the same. Or are the critters in the sand different to what would come from live rock.

    [wtd] Sand and Rock

    Hi guys. I am hoping anybody in the Eastrand has some Dead rock or sand they will be willing to give away for free. Or maybe a car wash. Haha. The rock and sand is intended for a display tank, not a sump. Thanks. I will collect.

    My first marine tank.

    Thanks Riaan. That's very helpful information. I will just get a small pump for the sake of returning the water and some power heads for the movement.

    My first marine tank.

    So I have decided to go with the sump. But it will have to be internal. So unfortunately I will be loosing some real estate. But I don't want to get a steel stand and there is no space in my wooden one. I have seen some three chamber internal sumps that have a rather big over flow area into the...

    My first marine tank.

    Might have been some specialty sand then. They were small bags.

    Does it include pumps, heaters and what not. Or is it just an empty tank and empty sump.

    My first marine tank.

    Thanks guys for all the responses. I think I may go with the sump. But it will come down to being able to fit it into the cabinet. Though I did check out a metal framed stand this afternoon. For R650 its not to bad. Just doesn't look as good as the wooden one that came with the tank. The tank...
