I just bought a 10 Gallon saltwater tank.
I've heared it needs about 4 WpG
for live rock to thrive. So I plan to convert to an acrylic hood with dual lighting unit.
1. Found a strip of clear plastic.
2. Cut a piece of it with a saw and drill to accomodate for filter intake.
What needs to be done:
1. Glue a cover extension to the cover of my Penguin 125 biowheel filter to prevent it from splashing on the lighting fixture. (I'll use old milk jag to cut a plastic strip and aquarium silicon glue).
2. Combine 2 Lighting fixtures into one: One currently in use is a two-bulb, another is PC
. - pending parts like screws and nuts and completion of Filter adjustment.
Complications: due to the lighting taking ALL the space above the cover, only a small slit is left on the back of the tank to feed the fish. Anemone feeding will have to be performed by removal of the light & hood should this project be fully implemented.
