Saturday I pick up my 180 from glasscages.com. I am psyched.
Right now I have a 55 gal
, 20 gall sump. 80 lbs lr
in my tank, another 20-30 in the sump (base rock). The changeover is gonna be some slow planning followed by a flurry of activity during the move. Gotta stain and varnish the stand and canopy, paint the pback of the tank, prepare the plumbing, etc..etc..
questions, and input
Any of you Virginia people have any argonite sand a body could buy? I have looked from Manassas to Roanoke and Im running out of time to find any.
Right now I have 1 yellow tank, 2 percs, 1 coral beauty, 1 feisty damsel, a scissortail goby, a firefish goby, and a watchman goby. The tank is gonna be 6'x2'x2'. I need some swimmers like the coral beaty and yellow tang, any suggestions?
Im going to add 50 lbs lr
from liverocks.com and probably another 20-30 base rock. Ill be somewhere around 180 total, which is a little light I know. Dollar sign wise, Im thinking of adding more base rock to get up to around 250 total. Should I need much more than that?
My 55 is going to turn into my sump, dual returns, one on each end, then a baffle, then a refuge like chamber (dsb
and macros), and in the middle a return chamber with dual returns pumps (in case one fails). This is my only other filtration other than my lr
and skimmer. Any issue with that?
