My soon to be reef 28 gallon tank! My parameters are all in check, salinity, i have learned to keep stable. I have 13lbs of live rock so far. My lighting is an odyssea t5 quad 96 watt with 2 10000k and 2 actinics. So now.... The temperature in sc is devastatingly hot! It was 84_86 degrees in my tank a couple days ago. (my fans are on all night and day). So i took the glass lid off and the temp dropped down to 78_81 degrees! I bought a fan tday too from walmart. So i need some type of lid now so the blenny im getting tomorrow wont be able to escape the tank. I was thinking egg crate from home depot? Should i raise my ballast up above the water too cool it down even more? Its only like 3 inches from the water!(more like 2. I can make my own ballast hooks for the sides. Will this decrease the lighting to the point w-ere the lps
im thinking of getting will not survive?(i would put the lps
towards t-e top either way.). So any ideas on a good lid where there would be great circulation and entilation in the tank?
I have 1 Ocellairis clown, 1 peppermint shrimp(to kill the frikin aiptsia!
, 2 snails, and 4hermit crabs..
What are some good tankmates??
Ow about some good beginner coral? My powerhead is a koralia 425
