Well,This is my first go at saltwater, The tank has been up and running since September,It is a 75 gal
with 90 lbs of live rock, 40 lbs of live sand, I have a 20 gal
long tank setup as a trickle/sump/refuge w/algae's and about 10 lbs of livesand,this is about 10 gal
As for inhabitants,1 Clown fish, 30 various hermits, snails,
5 peppermint shrimp(for the aptasia), 4 Emerald crabs and 1 Coral banded shrimp and numerous worms, feather dusters, clams and such(mostly hitchhikers).
Now the tank has cycled about three weeks ago and I have pods
everywhere including the fuge and two pod piles in the tank.(can you see where this is going).
I would like to add a blue tang (Dory from nemo for the kids but if not thats fine) if the tank is large enough ( I think most places recommend at least a 70gal).Any fish recommendations?
I also have not decided on corals yet.
Anyway my goal is to support one Blue Mandarin...
This is my favorite marine fish, would love too have a male and female but I know thats not feasible.
Anyway, thats my little piece of the Big ole' blue, Let me know what you think.
