Thought I would put some pics up today of the 29g (and the 125). We put 53lbs of cured LR
in the 29, and it has fully cycled (1 week ago). We currently have 1 ocellaris clown in 10g QT. We used filter media from the fluval 404 on the 29 to instant cycle the qt. Pedro seems to be doing very well at this point (I will post pics later as the lights go off in the middle of the day).
The shells you see in the 29g are from my younger years when I collected, so unfortunately, we have little in the way of life visible in the 29 at this time. Please ignore the sponge filter, we may begin a 2nd qt to start that process for an additional fish (maybe a firefish or gramma). Circulation is provided by the fluval 404 and a penguin 1140. I will be removing the 404 in the upcoming weeks and hooking up a overflow/10g sump. I have buy the plumbing and return pump, and I have to mod the overflow because of its overall size (14 linear inches of surface skimming is a little much for a 29).
We did pick up a 24" CF
fixture, which currently has a 10k bulb in it. We are going to replace the 10k with a daylight (6700k) bulb, and add 2-10k's and 1 actinic T5 bulb when I get paid (I only get paid once/month, so I have to wait at this point. I will be designing a canopy to mount all of this to as well - but again, need money
I have one 250w heater in the tank at this point, and will have a 2nd 150w heater in the sump to keep things level in the process. Any critique is welcome!
How do I look? ooh- ignore the sponge filter!
Any body know what these brown things are?
Skimmer and Sump for 29g
We still haven't decided what we wish to do with the 125, and we still have reinforced our flooring either, so it's empty for the time being.
