Hey everyone I have been doing some research and discovered that sea horses may not be too possible as their feeding habits require a lot of attention, which would mean I would have to be home 24/7. I have just started cycling the tank (poured in salt today, and gave it "go-juice"). Currently I am home from college for the week, ug.. rough morning included having my lighting set up blow and a HOB
filter die... luckily it wasn't my XP3 canister filter! But basically I am interested in getting a fish, want to make a species tank with either a single or two fish.
My experience includes 2 years of freshwater, and 1 year of brackish water tanks... kept fish from Dojos to Oscars to puffers, etc.
In my tank is regular aquarium sand (50 pounds), possibly driftwood (currently being cured, so its an open option but they form great caves!), a 300 watt marinland visi-therm heater, a Filstar XP3 canister filter, will add on a HOB
filter to replace the one I lost, and as for lighting... its in the air, but will most likely be some what low light... like 1.4 watts per gallon (my prior light set up). My pH will be around 8.0-8.3, salinity will supposedly be around 1.020-1.022, and still cycling (has a little less than 3 weeks or so).
So... have at it and thanks!
