Heres some pics of my free 75g sw
setup. Granted i had a ton of cleaning to do and am totally amazed that the yellow tang survived. Amonia was thru the roof, no charcoal in the refuge and salt creep everywhere you could barely see thru the glass when i picked it up. Its my first aquarium and have been wanting a sw
tank for awhile but start up cost is high (as you all know). When i got it, it had the yellow tang, one hermit, and one snail of unkown breed. I have since added 4 more blue leg hermit crabs. I am blown away by the tiny eco system in these tanks. I have seen two feather dusters in my dt and one in my qt tank. I put some live rock and some cc (I got a new bag of it with the setup) in a 10 gallon tank with the standard hob
filter for a qt tank. Will this work for a qt? I have spent many hours searching for info on this site and it has been invaluable just wana say a quick thanks. anyone know what kinda snail that is in the upper right pic?
Oh yea one thing i learned as a newbie. dont take the heater out of the water unless you unplug it. It will get VERY hot VERY quick and then it wont work anymore.
