34 Gallon Solana Tank Build!!!!

I'm going to pick up tank later tonight or in the morning. I plan on making this my high end tank. With rare corals and fish. It will be a mixed reef and will only hold 4 fish (I'll get to those later).


Lighting- I plan to go with nano al sol fixture
Skimmer- I hear the one that comes with tank is a lil noisy so I'll be using hydro koralia nano internal skimmer
Ato- tunze osmolator
Rock- ill be going with real reef rock and another type to get a good arch look

Now for the interesting part the fish
Gold assessor basslet
Dracula goby
Premium snowflake clowns ( still tryin to decide if I want a pair or just one)
Anybody with any suggestions please help. I'll post pics later of tank

Hello! I will follow along this build and see if I can contribute anything useful.

Congrats on your new tank.

I say that you get one Snowflake with another kinds of Ocellaris (maybe a Black Ice or Midnight). There are many options.

Okay thanks, my LFS should have it ready in the morning, I'm ready to pick it up now tho. And I really like the black ice clowns so that would be a good idea.

Have you heard anything about the nano al sol fixtures?

I'm sorry, I have don't know much about that kind of lighting. However, on the forum there is a great member named Doug (mr_X) who knows a great deal about lighting. He may be able to help.

My next step is soaking in water and white distilled vinegar overnight.

Cool tank, rimless is always nice!

I currently have an in-tank skimmer in my 125g, and have great results with it. I would definitely recommend it, it is the Eshopps psk-150. If you wanted one for your tank you would have to get a much smaller one like the psk-75 (PSK_150 | ESHOPPS - Manufacturer of Aquarium Filtrations).

Not sure if it would fit in your back compartment, however.

Here's a pic of a pair of snowflakes I got from sustained aquatics. I'm very pleased with them. They even have a little baby blue along their black outlines.

Redsea I was actually looking at those last night I just gonna have to check the size. And I love rimless tanks but im probably gonna build a net top so I can hold some real high end fish and not worry about jumpers!!!
