I do tank transfer method while we are there with an airstone and flow pump, daily transfers with new seawater every day. In winter also a heater, but in summer in kzn this is not necessary.Do you collect over the course of a few days? How do you keep the fish over the course of however long?
Cool man, thanks a lot. The skoon-familie have a holiday house in Mtwalume, hopefully with it being a bit quieter in that area I should have some luck finding something niceIn a closed bucket in the boot with fresh seawater I collected from the surf zone just before we start the drive.
For my 400 ish liter tank that I'm busy setting up I want to have an algae scrubber be my main source of nutrient export. The tank will have a reasonably low bio load. What size screen do you recommend I use and do you know where I could get the screen?
Honestly, see what you can fit in there with splash guards and space for the feeder pump, and still be able to work in the sump. The mesh size in my case was surprisingly small compared to what I think it would be after the splash guards and also pipe elbows.Well my sump us 120 by 45. There won't be a skimmer so there is plenty of space for the algae scrubber. What size do you think would be appropriate? Fish wise I'm going to have between 6 and 10 fish with the only large fish being a blue tang and either a copperband or yellow longnose butterfly.
I think I got that from @MacSakkie , but my butterflies destroyed it (ate the tentacles causing it to hide and bleach), only coming back to life and getting colour again now, think it had a green base in its heyday, it is one of these:So nice to see the tank coming back to life again...arent you glad now you didnt part with it!
Where did you get the RED Bubble Tip Anemone? I've been looking for a true red one for over a year now with no luck...
