Geez, this hobby is gonna kill me financially lol
I want to convert my 60g planted tank to a FOWLR
sometime maybe this summer after I finish stocking my nano cube
. I'd like to keep some non reef safe fish in here. I was thinking of a bicolor angel and (dont eat me up lol ) threadfin butterfly...possibly....eventually lol I'm open to any cool suggestions though
Okay, so Im going to just use an octopus BH1000 skimmer and probably 55 lbs of rock for filtration and My dual .T5 HO
fixture for lighting-this is what I have questions on.
Would 108 watts of light be too much on this fowlr
? I want to run a 10k with a actinic but don't want to deal with really bad algae right off the bat (like my nano cube- under control now though). So how can I avoid getting all kinds of algae since its a new tank? Or is it not avoidable? I don't know why I'm so nervous about algae in this setup, but I am lol. So, again, too much light? And will weekly 5-6 g water changes prevent algae?
I read other people's builds and a lot of times they never get cyano
or a ton of hair algae at first and I just wonder..HOW!! lol
Okay, thank you!
