I have a 75 gal FOWLR
. With 1 T5 actinic blue and 1 T5 daylight I beleive and both are 39w. I have a marineland 360 multistage canister filter, 2 power heads and a heater. I have between 80 and 100 lbs of LR
closer to 90 lbs. This set up has been go'n strong for close to 3 years. My CUC is the basic set up of different hermit crabs and snails and a couple shrimp. One is a Blood Red Shrimp
and the other is a Banded Coral Shrimp
. 7 Hard Tube Coco Worms
. Fish at the moment are 1 Clown
soon to be 2 (again), Yellow Prawn Gobie
, Banded Watchman Gobie
, Diaomond Gobie
and 1 Two Lined Monocle Bream
. Had a few more inhabitants but thats a long story for another time.
I want to take the plunge and add corals to my aquarium and I need to know what do you guys suggest I add or change to the set up? What do the water parameters have to be? do I have the proper lighting? What could I do as far as fish? Meaning what fish are basically off limits.
I know it's a broad question and there are probably a million and one different answers to this question with the variables be'n what types of corals and whatnot but I was hope'n you guys could point me in the right direction to make it an easy transition? Better phrase would be to make it easier because I know as well as anyone anything worth have'n or do'n isn't go'n to be easy. Since be'n on this site I have really gotten the urge to take it to the next level. Any help or input at all would be great.
