It has been quite a while since I have been on the forums and since I have had a reef tank, but I am back now.
I have been plotting and planning for the last few months just waiting to pull the trigger. Well last night I decided to stop by the local fish store and saw the perfect rimless tank for me. Up to that point I was having a hard time deciding on the tank. Ok, enough of the Blah blah blah......
The tank is a rimless not sure who makes it 5.5g. and here is the plan
Lighting - 12 Cree Leds 6 Royal blue and 6 Cree XP-G Cool white. All of which I ordered from rapidled.com I also plan to add some more Royal blues on a separate driver for "color pop" viewing pleasure at night.
Filtration - Hang on back, not really for a filter though. I just wanted to water movement. So far it is pushing the water around. I might add a powerhead at some point.
Live Rock - currently I have a few pounds that I picked up from the LFS to get the cycle started. The plan is to order some from TBsaltwater.com guessing about 10lbs or so.
Inhabitants - I am thinking a goby of some sort, but not sold on the idea yet. Open to suggestions. Along with some hermits and a couple shrimp.
Stand - will be hand building that in the coming weeks. I want to set this up in the corner of the room, so I might make a triangular corner stand.
Lastly, Here is a pic for your viewing pleasure. Not much yet, but it is a beginning.
