Just wanted to say hi.
I have been browsing around and these are fantastic forums, so i decided to make it my home.
My tank is only been up about 2.5 months total. I am new to the whole hobby and have done everything by self research. So let me introduce you to my tank and its occupants!
Its a fish only tank, I have been thinking of adding some cleanup crew critters to help my skimmers load. Maybe a lawnmower blenny as well.
80 gallon RR acrylic aquarium
30 gallon sump
jackson marine skimmer
100 lbs crushed coral for the sandbed
0 lbs live rock, i'll be adding some to sump shortly.
Lighting are just 2 6500k NO's w/ a actinic bulb'
The lighting is where my focus is currently... i just finished the design phase of my lighting setup (i'm a computer geek so of course my lighting plans get visio'd first lol).. which will be a 400watt MH
in the center w/ 2 actinic VHO
's, and after reading the DIY led
guide.. i think i have to add those to the mix.
My livestock are:
1 Blue Tang
1 Maroon/Yellow clown
1 yellow tang
1 domino damsel
1 yellow damsel
1 stripe damsel
2 macro algae plants in sump.. this was my addition to try to offset the brown algae that was taking over my tank.
Anyway.. we all love pictures so here are mine..
