Yip Im ready
Picked up the tank this weekend and painted connected and set up now its the wait for the cycle to complete!
Thanks @CJT for the help carrying and setting up
Just got some hermit crabs and a snail to start building up the clean up crew.
Looking at introducing a couple of goldies in 2 weeks or so
Alright so i decided to get a sail fin tang i found one for a great price and it still fairly small so it will give me time to look at upgrading in the future.
Will be taking some pics this evening to post, i have some funny insect looking things running round my tank they quite small around 7mm the biggest one they tend to come out more in the evening any ideas will try post a pic but they look like mini shrimps or something.
Its the pods
Amphipds,copepods etc ....they travel as hitchikers and live and breed in liverock,its a good sign wen u see life in the tank... They are beneficial in many ways, they eat debris off rocks (aka scavengers) so u dnt have feed them and they also serve as a food source for certain fish .... That's just some of there benfits ... Nice tank btw
the wife got me a yellow tang and two fire shrimp the tank is starting to take shape now also got some xenia frags from @shaunn which are doing awesome and seem to be growing like the weeds they are!
Im thinking of using the famous Orca Cubes in my tank is they any thing i should be aware of before i replace or remove my deep sand bed and use the cubes.
Also what would be the best way to run them i was thinking of moving my skimmer to where my deep sand bed is and tying the bag around the overfloe pipe into the sump.
They is quite alot of air bubbles that form there and the flow is great any comments would be appreciated
hahaha... did u really put that ship in there...?
Eish ok... Everyone to his own looking good there...
Ja man i like that thing makes me remember the days of bath water fish LOL
Jo my bru glad you like it...
hahahaha.... i have a yellow duck i can donate!!
Sweet man ill take a yellow duck even a toy shark ill gooi them in but for now im more interested in the orca cubes and how i can swop my deep sand bed for them and how much to use etc. any comments would be appreciated with that.
