An update - testing has shown my 29g tank is cycled as of Saturday! Yay! We are noticing some things on the LR
, so that's a very good sign to me! How soon until I could/should be adding inverts to this tank?
We are going to be setting up our QT tonight for the tank (10g) tonight. I think that tomorrow we are going to look at False Percs to put in there.
I am starting to design the plumbing for the sump (my first design), so there are some challenges to the design that I haven't anticipated. Can anyone point me to a calculator to determine overflow rate, so I can determine which return pump will work?
I did pick up over the weekend a 1x65w CF
fixture, and will be supplementing that with the Current USA NOVA T5 Retrofit kits (1x14w each, 2-3 total). I am thinking of replacing the 10k bulb in the CF
fixture, and replacing with a 6700k bulb, then the T5s will have 1-10k, 1 Actinic. So that would give me a total of 65w+2x14w = 93w (or 107w if I add another T5). Of course, I have to build a canopy to house this all.
Oh, and we picked up the 125g last weekend. 8O Came with 4x96w coralife CF
), and a CPR3000 sump/CPR CR-202 Overflow, but I have to plumb the sump still and buy a return. I think that we are going to start a fowlr
with this guy for now. I will post some pics later tonight of the 29g and 125g.
Hey, question: When purchasing a heater to put in a sump for a tank (say 40g sump for 125g tank, what size heater do you get? One sized for the tank, or one sized for the sump?
