well thanks all for the lighting advice . i got the new lights yesterday and they are all set-up. i have included a couple pictures. so far i only have a few dozen hermits ,about the same snails and one sally lightfoot crab and one chromis. i will add others in a couple weeks.
its been up and running about a month. started with 20 lbs LR and added 30lbs of cured rock last week. i am going on vacation next week so i figured i wouldn't do anything else until i return and can spend "quality time" with it.
amm.-0,ni-o, na-10, salinity-1.024,
100lbs live sand
external cpr overflow
20 gal sump
fluval 404 full of sponges and filter floss only
i am not really sure right yet what i want to add. i will probably add a couple more green chromis. an orange goby, a variety of 'shrooms, colts, zoo's and polyps.
any suggestions on fish? in the past i have had, flame angels, coral beauty, assorted tangs, anthias,(or is it anthii?),clowns, damsels, foxfaces.
i will probably add a couple clowns but i don't know which ones yet. how about some cardinals? i here they do not like high currents.
