Ok, so I currently have about 50 lbs of LR
. My goal is to have a Manderin. I know I know, they need x amount of LR
to survive. Right now I have turned my Hagen AquaClear 500 into a HOB
mini fuge. It has about 7 lbs of LR
rubble in it. Now, I'm guessing I will probably have to setup a refugium, probably a 20 gal
filled with 30 lbs of LR
. I have hundreds and hundreds of amphipods all over my LR
right now and hundreds and hundreds of copepods on my glass, powerheads, etc.
First off, I'm 19, I go to a JC, live at home, and work part time. So I don't have tons and tons of money to blow on this stuff.
My final fish setup will be a pair of true perc clowns, shrimp goby, and a green or spotted manderin.
What do I have to do in order for this to work and make my manderin as happy as can be.
