Hey man, cant wait to see how your system is looking now. I have just set up a new tank about 4 months ago, I'm going to make a thread on it soon (getting the water parameters perfect, tons of pods and only one small zoanthid:whistling:). So please post I bet it looks amazing by now!
After taking a brake from reefing for about 2 years, i am hoping to set up a new 110L mixed marine tank. Luckily I have not got rid of all the essential and most costly things, like my live (dead now) rock, protein skimmer and Tunze pumps.
I want to go with a classic sump design not to complex...
Dane that is a very nice tank (any tank without algea is good tank:thumbup:), I had a candy cane coral in my first tank and even though it only had a 11watt light with no reflector it grew and that was because i fed it weekly, this coral will need additional food. Good luck!
I had my eye ont he aqua medic 250w but my one big problem is only two T5s and well is it realy worth the extra money, if it is possible to make a DIY unit and have 4 T5s, but it does not work as well then the extra money is a good idea is there any other light unit like this I should look at?
Thanks everyone, well Jacques is to do water changes one a week and quiet large ones. I have been thinking of how I can add an effective DSB but that is only an idea now. What I am using is a lot of purigen to keep all ammonia, nitrite and nitrate in check I hope. I am also using Stability and I...
I should be adding the first SPS in a month or so if all the water conditions are alright. My next fish to be added are two perc clowns, somewhere down the line I want to add a six line wrasse but as this would be the most agro fish in the tank that is last, what I should add after the clowns I...
Well the the tank is up and running, so far all is going well.
Tank 45h x 60l x 50w= 125l with 10cm black silicon and the front glass is low iron glass(starphire)
150W MH (going to upgrade soon, not to soon)
Atlas return pump
Carib Sea special floor grade
The algae in your display tank is normal, but the cyno on the cheato should be removed with out hesitation as it WILL spread if your system is not 100% and marine tanks or any tanks for that matter are never 100% when you set it up.
Curvball, I am setting up a 125L nano and I am going SPS dominant on it. So I would really like your opinion on IceCap vs. AquaMedic or is there any other light I should be maybe looking at? I am going to use 250watts so I think that either way I go I will get growth but what I am really looking...
Sorry I been away for so long, Im back now
I have not given up on the new tank it finished but thats only the tank no cabinet (being made) no lights and of course no life.
This tank is made of 10mm glass with front panel being starfire glass and polished edges with black silicone.
