I'm on a budget and forget to post most of the time. Here is where I'm at:
Start date July 2012.
Expected finish early 2013.
2x Koralia Evolution 750gph circulation pump
Hydor Smart Wave Pump Controller (creates random flow)
50lbs base rocks
46g bowfront tank + manufacturer stand
Aqueon Pro 200w heater
Red Sea No3
, P, Cal, Mag, Alk
Refractometer and backup Hydrometer
Mag float glass cleaner
Reefbreeder Value LED
DIY hanging kit
Tunze auto top off
5g reservoir (bucket with lid)
Kalkwasser (inside ATO) and magnesium
Reef Octopus BH 2000 skimmer
($7) Peppermint shrimp
Maroon Trumpet coral
2x rubbermaid 32g trashcan
Aquaclear 50 powerhead
Marineland Visi-therm 200w heater
24' Flexible tubing
Reef salt mix
unit 75gpd plus
I changed my mind about the ATS. I don't want to build one anymore. I'm too busy for it. I'll go with the tradition skimmer and refugium method. I'll just hook up the deep red and royal blue LEDs to the refugium. Sometimes in the near future.
I'm keeping coral only until they start growing.
Anyways, here is my water parameters:
I have an ATO with kalkwasser at the bottom. Any feedback on my numbers??
Those are acceptable numbers when I looked it up. I already have some candy cane corals. My API is not reliable on pH, but its says 7.8. I don't believe it.
How does my corals look so far?
I have no idea. They have been in the tank for the past few days.
