Ok. Keep in mind only the cycle is complete. Lol. The stand is not - it's just a frame and I'm ok with that for now.
I have 26lbs of LR
in the tank now (stolen from different areas around the house and at the shop
). It looks like diddly squat. There's a 2 inch sand bed as well. Like I said before the tank has some inverts that are all fat and happy and come out and play everyday. Should I add more rock? Or should this be ok for the angler? I tried to scape it so there was plenty of places for him to perch on and that's why the rock is all like bridgework IMO
. There's a low flow ph in there but not the final one- just one that I threw in there when I initially set up the tank a while back. Right now there is a spare LED
on the tank- but that's being moved to another project soon. Since I'm only keeping macro in the tank what do you recommend as lighting? I have a spare housing unit in the garage but I'm curious as to what bulbs everyone would recommend.
Also- depending on the size I get (most likely small) would live mysid be ok to start as live foods? I am working on actually breeding them in another tank as treats for my sister's seahorses. Of course it would most likely be closer to 1" that I would feed a small angler. As it gets bigger I could switch to damsels every few weeks as a treat since I am hoping to get it on frozen as soon as possible. Lastly, I know the peppermint in there would be dinner and mostly likely some others, but would hermits and nassarius be ok?
