    Hi guys
    After packing up my tank in April, I am back and started another tank. Learned a lot the first time round and have a much better idea of how I want this new fowlr setup.

    My plan is to run a efficient tank on a low budget.

    Currently have LR, local butterfly and 2x massive african clowns.

    I am in need of a lot of macro algae, anyone has some spare I can grab?

    Cheers

    Funny how the second or third time round you know exactly what you want.
    How do you mean efficient, energy or maintenance?

    Yes yes please, pm me your n6mber then we can arrange?

    Thanks tekkengal, planning couple of tangs and non reef safe fish

    True hey! Im planning low maintenance, in otherwords a killer filtration system that could deal with the bio load effectively without breaking the bank with massive mechanical filtration.
    Im planning a lot of LR but will adjust along the way and see what works best. Tons of info on this forum :thumbup:

    Thanks chikaboo

    If you want killer filtration for fish, go with bio balls or fluidised sand filter and orca bio cubes...no maintenance just enjoyment

    @Nippy thats caulerpa and cheato. The caulerpa has doubled in size since I took this pic. I'll have to start trimming back in about 2 weeks.
    My idea is to get enough macro to handle the N03 and P04 but looks like I'll need more than that 3 foot :eek:
    Dosing vodca too
