I had this set up as a FW
tank and decided to switch it over to SW
. It's been up and running now since August, so far I haven't had any major issues.
Here's how it looks today with the exception of the filter, moved it behind the rock.
Here's my equipment so far... I have my Marineland Bio-Wheel 350 (for now),
200W Heater, Deep Blue SolarmaxHE double T5 light w/ moonlight LED
's, Cheapo Hydrometer and a Marineland Powerhead (Unknown GPH
, came with the tank).
Deep Blue SolarmaxHE Double T5 Light
I currently have 16lbs of LR
and Crushed coral substrate. I plan on getting more LR
, just have to get it a little at a time due to budget constraints.
I plan on getting a protein skimmer, an additional powerhead/wave maker, HOB
overflow and to make my 10g tank into a sump.
A bunch of Turbo Snails and some hermit crabs. I want to get some cleaner shrimp and maybe a few different type of snails.
I had 2 Yellowtail Damsels and 2 Blue/Green Chromis after the tank cycled. About a week after I introduced them all into the tank, 1 Damsel died. A week and a half later the other Damsel died. All of my levels checked out fine as you can see below so I'm not quite sure what went wrong w/ them.
