Hi all I am in my third day of cycling my 75g / 40g sump tank.
I am running:
6 t5 ho
lights and a led
Squid directional current
Reef octopus 110 skimmer
Large heater not sure what size yet.
60lbs dry rock
20 lbs live rock
80lbs live sand (3" sand bed)
Soon to haves:
Hydo 1500 x2
Hydo wave controller
Better water testing kit
20lbs more live rock
So far my readings are:
: almost 80ish
(Getting a more complete test kit soon)
First addition of cleaners I'm hoping to add in a week hopefully if not sooner after things level out.
12 dwarf blue leg hermits
10 Astraea turbo snails
20 nassarius snails
2 Mexican turbo snails
10 cerith snails
2 peppermint shrimp
2 emerald crabs
2 banded coral shrimp
1 chestnut turbo snail
Hoping to move from smaller tank once cycle is complete:
1 4" GSP (green spotted puffer)
1 4" Dragon goby
2 Frags of radioactive zoa
The puffer is really docile and seems to not be interested in the snails at all what's so ever... Weird I know... The goby seems to be the more aggressive fish.
So here is where I ask my more experienced aquarium enthusiast's what other fish can I / should I get. As well as anyone have any suggestions for me?
We like the odd looking puffer, box fish, and angler styles as well as the clown / anemone pairings. We are also looking into getting some corals and such as well. Just not sure what we can or should be getting.
Sorry the outside of the tank is dirty just got done working on it
Sump chamber #1 2 and 3 in order
Also on two of the pictures is some sponge sort of thing growing on one of the rocks I purchased from my local LFS
any idea what they are for sure?
