I just updated my thread. It's at the top (Currently of this forum). I had an Amazing White / Maroon Wartskin for about a year, before he passed away. You can read my thread about most of my experiences, and feel free to ask me anything.

My thread is Tim's BC Angler ....

Unfortunately, mine passed a month or so ago. Still not 100%, but I strongly believe it was food poisoning. I was feeding live ghost shrimp at the time, and the three fish, Angler, Hawkfish, and damsel who ate the shrimp all died the next morning.

The other fish in the tank are all still alive.

Yeah I just saw your thread. I'm sorry. That's awful. You should get another one. Maybe a different kind like a red one or black. That really sucks.

So problem number 1 with this build... The halides throw off sooo much heat which I expected but even turning my heater off and lights off overnight the temp stays around 80 degrees. With lights on its 83. I know that's too high for the angler, and a chiller is around $200-300.... Any way I can avoid buying one? Anyone know of any good fans that can be attached to the sump possibly? The sump is attached to the tank in the back.

My biocube was the same way. 82-83 during the day, and 78-80 at night. I switched to LED lighting and it dropped a few degrees but still around 80. For what it's worth, even at the higher temperature, as long as its consistent and no big temp swings, it should be fine. If it goes any higher than 83, I would start to look into options.

Bought some rocks today. I went with Fiji live rock and real reef rock. I'm glad I did. The purple alone would've been really dark. I like the lighter Fiji rock for contrast, though I know it'll all change eventually. The guy at the fish store I bought the tank from (and the rocks) said less is more with an angler tank as far as rocks go. Ill probably get a few more though to build it upwards. Here's pics of the start of it! Also I'm dumping in half a bottle of bacteria now. Once my cycle ends ill add a chromi or two and dump the rest. Hope it works!

Completely aside from this topic. What lights are those on the tank to make the rocks glow like that? I want to get a night time light for my tank to make my corals fluoresce but I can't figure out what kind to get. I feel like a big dumby for not knowing too haha
