my first reef tank is finaly set up! the tank is a 35 hex w/ a prizm skimmer by red sea, a prism pendent by custom sealife (w/ 3 32 watt) and has about 50 lbs of sand. the rock is fiji.
the live stock selection is what i want checked (al though comments on the hard ware are also aprricated)
Hi aqua maniac- Congrats on your new hex! I love the way they look.
did you already buy all those critters, or are those just in your plans?
I can tell you from experience, that the clowns will make a mess of your tank! I love my tomato clown, but shees! she has really made a mess of my DSB, and now she is bullying my wrasse, fer kryin' out loud
also, that jawfish will be too disruptive for your size tank. I have a 29, and have to be very careful of the inhabitants. I've lost some fish from others finding them to be very tasty.
no i havnt bought any critters yet as the rock is still "curring" from the shipping. i plan to order (the pet stors in my area suck) the inverts and the hardiest fish at the end of next at the earliest
i also go to reef central (but TRT is prefered). they seemed to think the star would be a bad choice. comments?
Hmmm...It looks like your bioload will be too great for the hex. They are kewl looking tanks, but the water surface area is less than a horizontal tank.
So you need so reduce the number of critters to go in the tank.
