So it has been a year since I setup my 29g FOWLR
tank. I have been into fish fresh and saltwater for 4 years now. Freshwater wasn't challenging enough so I moved into saltwater world. Oh my. Like everyone, I had hard lessons to learn. I also breed mystery snails, Apple, ivory, blue, purple and reds and the occasional "mutt", brown. I was completely happy with my 29g tank until it leaked so I had sell my freshwater gang-2 breeding angels, 2 breeding Chinese algae eaters, 1 very fat Blue gourami and a 12" spotted pleco. Thank goodness I sold them all together as they were all together since they were babies and for 3+ years.
On to the upgrade.....
I saved as much water from the 29g- about 10g
Had 20# crushed coral
Had 32# live rock with lots of lovely growth
Added 20# African cichlid mix. Rinsed
75 Aqueon HOB
Koralia 240 wave maker
Livestock in 55 gallon
2 red legged crabs
6 (?) baby brittle stars
Safe and sound in 20g tank and waiting to be moved.
2 Oc clowns mated pair
Chocolate chip star
Bunch on zebra crabs
Bunch of red legged crabs
Only lost the firefish, little bugger committed suicide and jumped out through a hole the size of a dime. Ugh.
I'm looking for new lighting, filtration and protein skimmer. I want some corals, going to do basic/easy ones hopefully. I know I going to go with t5 LED
lights. But need so suggestions on filter and skimmer.
