Ok so I"m always begging for trouble. Because we hate trying to maintain the Tall 47gal SW
we have we decided to upgrade to a 75gal that is 48".
Here's what I did so far.
I made 15 trips to the shoppette for R/O water using a 5gal jug.
Added crushed coral as a base with Fine white sand covering.
My Filter is a Rena Filstar XP2 that we moved over from our old tank. We hope that this will help speed along the cycling process.
My husband has decided that we want to start working with corals and inverts so we bought AQUALIGHT Brand Deluxe Series - Double linear strip lighting. Problem is I'm not absolutely sure on how I'm suppose to use it.
It has Two Coralife Actinic and two 10,000K compact fluorescent lamps in the fixture. I've read about people using different types of lighting throughout the day. This lighting I can set to use the bulbs seperately. I'm not sure when I should use the diff types. My rather expensive lighting didn't come with a info guide. Are these high enough intensity, I hope so because the tank lights up my living room like crazy.
I've put in my shrimp and I'm starting my fishless cycling now. More info and pics to come along shortly.
