Well, I got the SeaClear 50 gal
moved in and set up.. I got this one from my buddy who could not maintain it anymore due to a new job that requires a lot of travel.. His loss my gain :P
Here is the setup which I may be changing over time..
Tank - SeaClear 50 gal
Fluval 304 canister filter
Live Rock (lbs ?) At least it was live when he bought it..
Live sand lbs ?
1 three dot domino damsel (you can see the white dots in the closeup)
2 blue with yellow tail damsels (hiding)
1 cleaner shrimp. (hiding)
Unknown lighting.. Has 2 florecent bulbs.. one is blueish and the other white..
I saw some worms in the tank system II filter... They look like little earth worms.. Maybe 1- 1.5" in length..
Here are some shots of the setup..
I do have a couple questions though.. Please refrence the shot of the tank where you can see the filter and hoses... Please excuse/correct me if I dont use the correct terminology...
First, I have the canister pickup line pulling from the chamber where the overflow drains to.. Is this OK?
Second, I have the canister return line routing over the top of the overflow gate and height adjustment. Routing it this way doesnt allow me to raize the gate higher and I think the water level in the filter is is too high.. I cant put it in the main opening of the the tank due to the light fixture.. Anyone got any ideas? (besides remove it)
Third, given the current setup do you have any other recommendations.
I would eventually like to work towards a reef but that could be a year out.. I would like to also get a protien skimmer soon..
Anyways.. Let me know what y'all think.. Advice is always very appreciated and I have learned a lot on this forum over the last week or so.. Thank you all.
