I've been reading, and such cause having this empty 30gal sitting around is starting to annoy me :p [ In other words, If I don't set it up soon it may become a FW
tank for Bolivian Rams.. Curse you Alli! ]
So I've been reading and asking and, ect ect.
So here we go.
30gal tank, 4 inch DSB
20 or 30Gal refuge/sump with a inline pump to move the water back to the tank.
CPR Bak Pak2 Skimmer
4 or 5 Maxi-Jet 900's with prefilter sponges to prevent accidental suckups of fish [ 3 for the main tank, 1 or 2 for the bottom 30gal ]
Florescent,190 watts per tank [ 380watt total.]
30-45Lbs of Keys rock from liverocks.com per tank. [ Some uncured to cyrcle the tank, hopefully]
2 250Watt heaters, One per tank to keep temps in check.
After things get done I'll start with hermits, sandsifters if any can go in this sized tank, and snails and shrimp.
After its stable for a month or two I'll add my first fish after QT
in a 20gal tank
Then at a new fish or two every other week or so until I'm stocked.
Stocking, I was thinking of a Lion Fish or a small Moray for the bottom tank, and a few clowns for the top, with anenomes and maybe a few corals to come when the tank is mature.
Does this sound like a good plan?
