Smile redsea's Plan-Next Tank

Hi everybody! I wanted to start a thread to chat about my upcoming build. This particular tank will be a FOWLR, and it won't be very large, but I do plan on a larger tank in the future.

For stock, I know that I definitely want some Clownfish, along with some other smaller fish. I also will most likely be adding Emerald Crabs and Shrimp. Maybe even a Lobster!

As for actual size, I am thinking 29g at the very least.

Lastly, I may be interested in running an algae scrubber for this build.

That is all for now, thanks (and please post your suggestions/thoughts/opinions)

Grats on the upcoming build. I'm along for the ride of course! lol

29g is a great size if you settle on that. What about a 40B? They have an awesome footprint.

Thanks for following!

A 40g would work too! There are so many options!

Do you guys foresee any issues with putting my saltwater from PWCs into the woods? Would it end up in my or a neighbor's well?

Thanks a bunch!

I dont see there being a prob. Used saltwater should be the least of their concern when it comes to what is going into their well

Thanks Huma and Carey! I really appreciate both of your opinions.

Maybe I will just end up putting it down the drain in my backyard (that leads to the road). My only concern with that was if it was legal or not, so I need to check that out first.

Also, a while back Gregcoyote suggested starting up a trash barrel of water from PWCs and taking water out periodically to put in my septic (which seemed like a great idea to me )


The problem with PWCs is I completely overanalyze everything and turn everything into an extreme!

Thanks again everyone for checking out my thread.
