That's a good suggestion. I need to stop listening the the lfs and listen to you guys. They told me to put in LR and a few damsels. I have 17 lbs LR now and three small damsels. I checked the conditions last night and they are as follows:

PH: 8.2
Ammonia: 0.0
Nitrite: 0.0
Nitrate: 0.0
Temp: 76-78
Sal: 1.022

Once you do this you have a regular old tank thus defeating the purpose of buying the eclipse setup in the first place. If this is the case though then i will save myself the time and money and just get a regular old glass or acrylic tank.

So i was going to put my pakistani butterfly in this tank. WHat is the minimum size tank i should have for him? 20? 30? It will just be him and maybe a cleaner shrimp or two(i'm addicted to cleaner shrimp).

I know they make a 20 and 29g eclipse set up, but since that idea was defeated maybe i'll just get a regular tank that size. I am leaning twoard the 20, but if people say its way too small and he'll die, then i might have to go bigger.

Yeah...that was my point. If it's a FO tank with no LR, then the Eclipse is a good deal. If it's a FOwLR or a reef, then it's unnecessary and limits the amount of light you can add. JMHO.
As for the butterfly, I'm not sure...would have to defer to someone who knows more about them than I.

I'm running the 30 g eclipse with about 20lbs of lr and the bio wheel. It's been running for about 7 months with 2 clowns 3 shrimp and a bunch of snails and I've had no problems with nitrate levels.

Wow, where has the time gone! The 29 went full blown reef, mostly LPS and softies. It has since been torn down and I now have a 90.

Here was the 29 before it was torn down:



Here is a link to a quick page on my 90 that I'm doing now. It's going to be mostly SPS hopefully.
