    Hi guys , so Ive started up the marine tank, again!
    Sunday it was freshwater ... Monday it was Marine.

    Just a side note , freshwater and marine bacteria are the same - ive done it a few times , giving the filters a light rinse and putting the salt water in straight after the fresh went out - and visa versa.
    The tank is now about a 2 weeks old.


    Firstly - this is me and my youngest walking Danes new dog ( we babysat while he was at work )

    [​IMG]



    This is Danes new Pup - Blue.

    Unfortunately the Juwel light are made a slightly different size so i cant use there waterproof ballasts and put my Giesamans in
    So i put the small 24w double odessy fitting on - fits like a glove.
    The new tubes next month and most definitely another fitting .
    P.S
    I left the slandered juwel ballast on as well until the new one comes - so at the moment there are 4 T-5 lights with reflectors.


    This pic is Odesy light unit only

    [​IMG]

    This pic is odesy and Juwel together - you can see how the Lower kelvin tubes make a difference to the color - i will experiment a bit with the new giesi tubes.

    Im hopeing they go cream or yellow in the center , but could just be bleached ones like 2 pics up ?
    [​IMG]

    Im thinking of doing about 20 of these filter feeders as a garden...
    [​IMG]

    Im taking a pic of this because i was told that this brown growth is actualy what makes up Blue figi liverock - so every month i will take another pic and see if its spreading and actualy going to grow?
    [​IMG]


    I put 3 of these mini carpets in and ,right on top of the "mountain for the most light , so far they have all shifted about 5 cm in the wrong direction into slightly shaded areas - yip so i can really only see on !
    It wouldnt have been a problem , but im a fan of painting the sides as well as the back !
    [​IMG]


    Now i know what you thinking , so let me enplane !LOL
    This purple tang came in on Friday , and was not looking good at all , he was absolutely emancipated and seemed to have allot of battle scars ? - so instead of putting him in a hospital tank at work in the tanks that have problem fish , im giving him a week's Bed and breakfast in my tank.

    Hes eating so well now and when i sit in front of the tank to watch the copiapods :biggrin:
    he swims to the front glass and watches me !
    So if anyone wants a purple in a week or so let me know @stars ?

    P.S juwel has made a protien skimmer - ordered , but the film on the water surface is from the garlic concentrate the food is soaked in for the purple.
    [​IMG]

    My origanal idea for this tank was to cultivate Purple people eaters and become rich and famous - but after googleing the 5 heads for R800.00 i think i wont just leave my dayjob yet...

    Now i think it will be a frag tank , and no fish - but when we get a weak fish from a shipment , ill fatten him up in "Hotel Webster" for a while and find him a buyer .p.S
    Not my fish ,still belongs to Perky .

    Nice tank, I also have a Juwel Lido 120.
    Interesting, please show some pics and give us a review on this when you get it, my tank suffers badly from an oily slick on the surface, I bought a 2nd hand Red Sea Prizm skimmer but that thing is less than useless.
