I know...it was a spur of the moment decision trying to get the rock that was snatched up before I got there. Turns out that Matt was in the area and got it 30 minutes before I got there. We were there and gone before you were off work so I didn't want to bug you. I felt bad about driving right by you. I was only there long enough to get disappointed and leave.

Oh crap!

Ok so here goes. I made a decision (along with the help of my apartment complex) to not do a reef tank in my new 54g corner. I have decided to go high-tech planted, FW.

I'll pause and allow you all to pick your jaws up off the floor.

ok...ready to continue???



There are several reasons why I decided to go FW planted rather than reef:

#1 My apartment complex said I was not allowed to do Salt Water.
#2 I don't have my heart 100% into doing a reef right now. I don't think I would be happy with it because of the tank size and shape.
#3 I don't have the money right now to do it how I want (FW is gonna be expensive too)
#4 I want a new challenge and something different right now.

So there you have it. I'm going to be a freshy for a while. When I have a place that is more SW friendly I will have that reef again. Right now I'm excited about the possibilities of learning something new and doing something I haven't done.

The planted tank is still going to use the LEDs so I'm going to find out if they will do well for planted FW. I don't see why they wont as the LEDs I have are 6500K and that seems to be the color temp that works well for growing plants. I'm still going to use the blues I have so that will help in bringing out the color in the fish. I also plan to increase from 20 LEDs to 48 total with a white/blue ratio of 2 (maybe 3)/1.

I guess that means I'll have to start a new thread in the FW forum. Lawd!

I know I know I know.....so that's the big news.

Well that's a bummer , but I understand. And planted tanks are pretty cool. Maybe we could swap some plants someday lol.

I would appreciate any tips you have to offer as well. I started a thread in the FW planted forum.

That's what I said. Apparently they allowed it before and whom ever had one made a huge mess with salt creep and just mess in general. So now you are allowed a FW tank but not SW. Ah well.
