I have been planning out a Aquapod build to help my wife get off on the right foot ( what she wanted for x-mas). Here is what I have decided to do, anything look wrong or anything we're missing that is a must have.
Current Aquapod24 w/ PC
lighting- already bought( i considered MH
,not this time guys)
Replacing stock Power Head with maxi-jet 1200
Adding a koralia#1 , will position mid height across front of LR
150 watt visi-therm stealth heater
Will toss out all foam blocks/bioballs and fill 1st chamber with 5-7#'s of rubble or what ever will fit. will spill all return water at surface skimmer level.
Currently curing 30#'s of premium fiji LR
. Enough including the rubble?
10#'s of live sand mixed with 10#'s of dry sand-figure 2 or so inches
Will start using reef crystals instead of my instant ocean salt at 1.023
Only fish planned will be 6 line wrasse, other than that Zoa's, buttons,star polyps,mushrooms,xenia,shrimps,crabs,lobster,and snails. ( No clams,SPS
No other form of filter or media planned, only 5gal PWC
weekly in the begining, then after established may try to go bi-weekly.
What do ya think? am I setting her up for success? Anything I should place in 2nd resivor with heater and Power head other than ocassional 24 hour period of some floss to remove particles after maintanence ?
