i finally picked up the 55 gallon from my uncle! it isnt i as good of shape that i'd hoped at all but it shouldnt be too bad of a fix. i gotta clean all of the glass, ditch the stone substrate (formerly fw
). there is rock in the tank that was once covered in coraline but they are fake so ill be ditching them fore some base rock and a little live. the light is only a 36 watt so ill be pitching that aswell. can i still use that ballast for the light or do i need to ditch that too? oh 4got 2 mention im planning on a softy reef. for filtration ill be pitching the ug filter and keeping the hob
and i will prbly add a cannister filter. my uncle is also tellin me to do this jaubert pleum thing which only involves the hob
but i want to be safe. i still have about 12 more pages to read up on the filtration thingy so idk. i will also be needing to paint on a black background. still dont know what i want to stock the tank with at all yet. ill get some pics whenever i can get my camera.
