Got the tank about 2/3 of the way full and threw the vortech on low to try to settle some of the haze.
Mixing another 25g and making ro/di in the other can. Not enough water or clarity for me to start rockscaping just yet lol.

Not too sure how many people still follow along with my tanks, lol, but I was thinking of creating a new single thread for all my updates, questions and general fish chatter.

You guys think that would be a good idea?

hehe

back to the water!

Looking great! I don't think that would be a bad idea.

I think that would be easier to follow. So yeah that'd be good. Can't wait to see the 60 aquascapes.

I spent the day catching up on your build.I think it looks great.
I am slowly starting up again with the exact same tank and I have a few questions.One: Are you using the glass canopy with the Curre​nt USA Orbi​t
Mari​ne LED?,two what setting would you recommend for a FOWLR and three did your Deep Blue Professional stand look like this(if it did I wasted $200 buck :
Thanks!

Hi there.

Thats a gen 1 stand, I didnt get one like that cause of the center piece, woulda made working on it a pain I figured. All teh deep blue stands are made out of particle board so you will get some life out of it but it will most likely need to be replaced at some point. The store I bought it from even told me that they are notorious for doing that and if he had known he would have had me go with a custom stand when I first got the tank a few years ago.

As for the lights, nope no top, I dont have any jumping fish, at least i dont think they will be jumpers. lol Better gas exchange for the tank and helps keep the pH stable.
Any setting on the light would be fine, its up to what you like, you can use one of their built in settings but if you want different times or color combinations then just manually set it up. I would say for fish only, keep your lights on for no more than 10-12 hours. That way you can admire your fish when you leave for work/school and at the end of your day. lol I run my 90g fowlr with blues from 10 to 12 noon, then the whites come on at noon and stay on with the blues until 9pm when the whites go off and the blues stay on til 11pm i think. I dont run moonlights, fish need some sleep too!

I love the pictures, and am so glad that the Hawkfish is doing better. I love seeing your updates!


I hope you never stop them....I have been a little busy lately but will be on much more frequently (explanation for not posting for a few days).

Still doing great, I'm, actually surprised. It looks like it is growing a small branch as well, cant see very well cause its very very puffy. lol

However, I lost a lobo in this tank. It turned clear on the flesh and then it just rotted away over like 3 days. It was on the sandbed not directly under the light....

Any thoughts? Not enough light or to much light? I have duncans in the same place and they are doing well
