Vinegar works to remove old scum. Full the tank up with water and add vinegar. Forgot the correct ammount but I would add half a gallon for that size tank

I don't know about filling the whole tank up again, just to drain it all out again to add the salt water later. Would adding it to a spray bottle and just spraying it on and letting it sit overnight work?

It has to soak. But it's the safest stuff to use, otherwise it's a stronger acid.

You can spray it on and scrub it but filling it is way more effective honestly. Get a bucket and put a half gallon of vinegar and 2 gallons of water and get a scrubber and soak it and do it that way. Might work pretty good but I always just filled the tanks

Ok, OK!!!

Time for another update!

The tank stand is finished. The hood is finished, the tank is finished!! Now all I got to do is fix some plumbing issues, refill the tank to clean the glass and drain it.

I am so close! I am waiting for the Power Head I ordered, I got a large one, because I am going to use my two nano's for the other side and one large one on the other.

Question!

Here is my Stock list. (Fish I already have)

1. Lunar Wrasse
1. Yellow Tang
1. Yellow Eye Tang
1. Coral Beauty
1. Blue Spotted Puffer
1. Spiny Sea Urchin

If I wanted to do some easy low light coral would I need to get rid of any of my fish? I heard the Puffer would be the one I really need to get rid of, but everything else should be good right?

This is the light I have, that's why I can't do a lot of high light corals. Plus I don't want any corals that are hard to take care of. I would want forgiving ones. :-p

id say the puffer is questionable. depending on its individual personality and taste preference. i have a valentini saddle puffer that does fine with corals. also same can be said for the coral beauty. i have one as well that doesnt touch corals.

Any of the euphyllia including frogspawn should do fine with your setup. They also mix well, so separation isn't a big issue. I also have a 15 year old coral beauty that has never touched polyps, but he does pick, so clams aren't an option for me.

I keep a coral beauty in a mixed reef with 3 clams. The only thing I have ever seen it do is pick at algae 'near' coral that upsets them. In hindsight, I wouldn't have chanced getting a dwarf angel once learning more and discovering some of the more colorful fish available, like the orange back wrasse I picked up about a month ago. Much more reef friendly and soooo colorful.
