First to make a long story short I just purchased a Fixer-Upper home and where I will be temporarily staying there is no room for my 75 Gallon tank.
So I am tearing it down. I have found homes for most of my fish and have baby sitters for the few corals I had.
1.) What is the best way to keep the rock living? I was thinking of a pair of rubbermaid tubs a power head and the protien skimmer? Will I need to run lighting over it? Should I keep a damsel in there?
I'm giving my sand to a buddy who is setting up a 150 so thats no issue.
2.) I have tons of thick coraline all over the glass will I need to scrub my tank before refilling it?
3.) I would like to upgrade the lighting when it gets resetup. I am intersted in keeping some Brians and Softies.
Right now I have 2 of the 48" 4x65W Coralife running. I just cant seem to match the coloration that the corals have at the LFS
I purchase from. For example, greens just dont show up very virbrant in my tank. While the same piece in his practically glows. I asked him what kind of lighting he's running and he stated VHO
. I'm not opposed to spending money on MH
lighting if the setup below will produce results.
Do you think this setup would get me what I'm looking for? If so do I just mount that piece to the bottom of my canopy? Do I need to do anything else for heat?
