Well, I made my first real mistake with my tank and am suffering the consequences now. I have a 75 FOWLR
tank that just had a horrible ich outbreak. I had not added anything in a couple months and had taken down my QT
just a few days ago to rearrange some things in my house. Of course, as soon as I am without a QT
I get an ich outbreak. I couldn't treat them in the main tank and couldn't get the QT
cycled again in time to save everyone. Very sad day as I lost my gorgeous dog faced puffer.
At this point all I have remaining are a firefish and a snowflake moray. I have decided that I want to turn this into a reef tank now. Currently I have 4X65W PC
lighting. What types of corals could I keep successfully with this lighting? I'm sure I will eventually make the switch to MH
, but for now I don't want to put a lot of money into new lighting because this PC
lighting is still only 4 months old.
Once my QT
is cycled, I will move the firefish and eel into it so that the main can sit for 6 weeks with no livestock. This should allow the parasites to die off, correct? During this 6 weeks, is it safe to add corals?
I also have about 90lbs of live rock. I am planning on getting another 30-40lbs. I got my first batch from Premium Aquatics and was very happy with the rock (half Marshall, half Tonga). I like variety though and was thinking about liverocks.com. Everyone seems happy with their rock from there, but which type would you recommend?
Thanks for all your help
