New FTS with added LR. I'm hoping around 1/2 weeks before cycle is completed. If anyone has any tips on aquascaping it would be much appreciated! Thanks

Also, I'm getting a slight patch where the powerhead is moving the sand to the bare bottom (see on picture above)

Where would be the best place to reposition the powerhead

Thanks, Olly.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You just want it to glance off the front glass, not directly at it.
Youve got the upward angle looking good though. It usually takes a bit of messing with to find the perfect spot, so dont get discouraged.

Oh, duh, I forgot to ask, what size powerhead is in there? That should have been my first question, sorry.....

It's 3200 l/h hydor koralia! My plan is to get another exactly the same and get the regulator to have one on for 6 hours then that one off and the other on for 6 hours. To make the effect of the tide going in and out. Tell me if this is a bad or good idea haha!

Thinking about getting ready for stocking soon

Any ideas from anyone?

My list so far is as follows;

CUC;
2 fire shrimp
2 cleaner shrimp
6 hermit crabs (blue legged)
10 mixed snails (don't know of any that are the nicest looking)
2 emerald crabs
2 Halloween crabs

Fish;
3 Chromis (is it best to keep them in multiples of three?)
Pair of onyx/maroon clowns
Watchman goby
2 blue/yellow damsels
A small yellow/regal/purple tang and as they start to get too large for the tank swap them out to a friends larger tank.

I also REALLY want a lion fish, but I assume 120Litres is too small for one?

Please tell me if this is too much..

Thanks, Olly!

Three tangs in a 30 g is way way too much even if you are gonna trade them away. Its just asking for trouble in my experience.

Any luck with the power heads?
