about a month ago i got a 55 gallon tank on sale and started to work on the switch to the new 55 from the old 29. Here are a few pictures of the setup day, and pics of the new tank....
I took the change with the cycle, because i used my LR
from the 29 and got more LR
from the my lfs
, which is 5 minutes away. I took a bucket to fill with water and bring the rocks in to minimize die off. plus i got brand new sand and seeded it with sand from the old tank.
Tank is 55 gallons
65lbs of LR
( mix of fiji and florida rock with 2 tonga branches)
50lbs of sand, the live stuff. (was on sale)
Whisper 60 filter, right now i have one side with purigen and the other with lr
4 powerheads... 2 Hydor Koralia 3's and 2 penguim
2 200W heaters
Bak Pak 2 skimmer ( on the way )
