my tank so far

Permanent Linkby Essox on 30 Jan 2012 00:35

at the moment my stock list is:

a pair of percula clowns
one purple fire fish

10 turbo snails
2 cleaner shrimp
1 fire shrimp
3 red legged hermit crabs
1 rose bubble tip anemone
1 pistol shrimp(hitch hiker that im going to try catch and remove him)

1 torch coral
1 rock full of green star polyps
1 toad stool
2 red mushrooms

soon il be adding some more to my tank but before i do that im going to be looking into my water chemistry more before add anything else im having a problem with my purple algae on my rocks turning white iv done a good bit of research about water chemistry and believe it is my calcium that is low in my tank, im going to seahorse and getting a load of different test kits and additives for my tank and as soon as i understand water chemistry im not adding anymore stock to my tank to be safe!!!

all of my advice and understanding about water chemistry and reef keeping so far is mostly down to a lad that is on youtube and face book his name is newyorksteelo...

now i'm in my own horse and started reading up on the idea of keeping a maine tank again, so here i am again with a marine tank

my set up this time is a 3ft tank fluval 180ltr that is drilled iv a 4 section sump first from left to right is return pump with a bubble trap 2nd is where i have my deltec mc500 skimmer 3rd is where i have my miracle mud and algae and live rock and my heater 4th i have live rock and my sock with my flow pipe and a emergency overflow pipe, then i have 25kg of live rock in my tank with a deep sand bed

so with this setup i think...
