I have a 55 gal. set up about 3 months ago. So far it is live rock/fish only but I plan to add coral in the future. I'm looking to add some more fish but need suggestions or input on compatibility. Some fish I have been looking at are the bangaii cardinal, a pair of firefish, small school(5)...
Figured I'd make this a build thread now.So for those of you who didn't know, I got a 55 on Christmas, and have been setting it up. It has about 35 lbs of live rock in it, 2 Scarlet hermits, 3 snails of which I don't know the species, and a wild mud crab. And everyone relax, the tank has...
I know this has been covered tons but it seems like everything I find to look at or research makes no sense to me. I realize not much of this hobby is one size fits all if you will but I'm looking for a step in a clearer direction. My previous set up was a 29 gallon lit by an aquatic life t5 30"...
I have added an album trying to capture the tank as it is currently...I think a couple of corals didn't get the best close ups (I-Pads are really not the best for tank shots), but some of the pics came out great! Check it out! Love to know what you think! I put a link to the...
I decided to upgrade from my 10 gallon because it is getting filled up with frags after only 6 months. I would have gone bigger but this is all I can afford if I am going to do it the right way. Right now the tank is cycling and has about 15-20 lbs of live rock and 30lbs sand.
55 glass (48x13x22)
Fluval 305 filter
60 lbs of live sand
25 lbs live rock (more to come)
20 lbs base rock
Coralite T5 two socket light fixture
one 50/50 and one actinic blue
(4) Compact flourescent 26w on order
R2 48" (24) led blue moonlight strip
2 blue devil damsels
I am purchasing a 48'' T5 HO aquarium hood 4x54 watt by Catalina
the lights that come with it are
(2) 10k daytimes
(2) 420 antics
I was thinking
(1) 10K DAYTIME
(1) 6500K DAYTIME
(1) 450 ANTIC
(1) 420 ANTIC
i am running mostly sotf coral in a 55 gallon reef tank..
water is always kept at...
Hey all im gonna be setting up a 55 gallon sps specific reef and i was wondering if two 250 watt MH lamps complemented with T5 and actintics would be too much lighting for a 55. if it is would 2 150 watt mh with T5 accompaniment be safe..Thanks for the help! its appreciated!
Would It be a remarkably bad idea to ask what kind of tang, if any, I could keep in a 55g reef?
I know that any tang will eventually outgrow a 55g tank. (except maybe a Kole) No questions there. Im just wondering if i should even attempt this.
I was leaning toward a Kole Tang, but have...
To start I will post some specs and history of this tank. I started this tank as an AP24 with DIY LED's and a HOT filter. It ran really well for a few months, but the LEDs I used were subpar and began to dim. I replaced the LEDs with a 96W Quad PC, and added an Octopus HOB skimmer. This...
