No - we have a small apartment, and one 300 Gallon Saltwater tank will be enough.
We are gonna take then the 80 gallon Saltwater tank and turn it into my bass (african chilids) and turtle aquarium.
They are currently living in a 20 gallon aquarium and its way to small.
But yeah.. being that we live in Germany, water costs alot, and filling 300 gallons up and throwing it immediately out, will costs a couple hundred euros.
But so then the next question would be... whats the best design for the new aquairum?
Ideas we are pondering:
1. Hire a glass cutter and cut a hole in it, so we can have the equipment tank below. or
2. Have all the equipment hang over the side (will this be enough for 300 gallons? Or will there not be enough room on the side to properly maintain
3. Inside, we want to take 60% of the length and use for a reef, and then the rest as a sandy beach with an atoll.
4. We had been using Ocean Direct Black Sand... (from Florida), and the we have noticed that alot of our fish are dying and I am wondering if its because of the huge amount of metalic substances in this sand. When our magnet glass scraper falls in the sand, its covered in fine black particles, which shows there is a lot of bad stuff in this sand. we assume this is the reason our fish that scoop up the sand and filter it through their gills keep dying.
So come on peoples... if you had a new 300 Gallon Tank, how would you create it?
