I am all set to purchase 40lb of Gulf and Key rock from liverocks but I want to run my set up and equipment by the forum. I am new an any advice is greatly appreciated. I have had the water, salt and temp going since 6-18-05.
I have a 70 gallon (hexagon) with 40lb livesand and 10lb of dead rock
temp is 79 and salt is 1.022
My equipment that I have is:
2 powerheads Maxi jet 400 and 600
Sandfilter - Lifegard fluidized bed filter
Heater Via Auqa glassheater 200 w
Air pump - Tetratec Deepwater
pump - Fluval (msf) 304
Protein Skimmer Spears 1/2" (won't need till later?)
Light - 2 ultraviolet resources Intl LRJ - Actinic White CEt343 17
and a 1 coralife Actinic Blue 7100 k
(FR15 T8 360 BP AF833)
I want to keep coral and fish - Will these keep everything alive?
coral will come later, I will start with fish (slowly). Thank you in advance!
Should I run the Fluval pump when I put the 40lb of liverock in?
