i am setting up a 10g nano-reef (this is my first foray into the coral it could get interesting), and was thinking about documenting the process here, online. what do you guys think, would anybody be interested? i thought it might be nice for other aquarists to be able to learn from my mistakes... :P
anyway, so far i have these plans:
Current USA Orbit 2x40w PC
+ lunar LED
ZooMed 212 rotating PH
Surface Skimmer (works with the AC
500 with custom built in baffle to decrease turbulence, then adding LS
from an established tank for pod culture and stuffing it full of macro. this would also house the 50w visitherm delux heater, and possibly a DIY
teeny tiny protein skimmer along the lines of the red sea berlin airlift... but that will come later.
15-20 lbs LR
15-20 lbs LS
(around 2 in sand bed)
im not really sure exactically what livestock i want to have in the tank. corals will be softies, possibly star polyps, xenia, mushrooms, zoos...
banded coral shrimp
3 dwarf zebra hermits (algae eaters)
6 turbo snails
all i have so far is the tank, ive been shopping around trying to find the best prices. so what does everybody think? good idea? im very excited!
