Back to marines, and back to being broke!

Hello everyone,


I've just brought myself a new nano marine aquarium after being away from fish completely for a few years.


It is a Kent Marine, Bio Reef 94l. It's 2nd hand but looks in good condition so far, although its sitting in my car at the moment as I picked it up a few hours ago on my way to work.


I'll have plenty of questions, of that I'm certain!


So far I have a small list of potential fish I would like to keep, I'm under no illusion that I can't keep that much in it, so with that in mind I've looked at the smaller fish.


I'd like...


2x Clowns
1x Goby/shrimp pair
1x six line wrasse maybe
Blenny?
Cardinals?




So that's where I am for now, an empty tank!


Thanks for reading,


Sparky

You could keep all them fish in a 94l no problem

That's good to know, thanks.

One question I have right now, how do you up load a photo.

I've tried to paste it in, tried the URL using photo bucket etc but still says no!

Is it because its a new account maybe?

I had a 4x2x2 last time, and filling that with live rock cost a silly amount of money! Worth it though!

Thanks, I'm hoping it'll look good once it's all setup.

Yours is looking very nice, how long has it been running?

I plan on filling it up later today if not tomorrow to make sure all is well.

The pump and skimmer etc are all in a bag and need putting together, will have to work out what goes where.

Once it's all working ill drain down ready for RO. So I'm best adding my RO, get up to temperature and salt it, then add LR and LS. Then just wait for the cycle to come and go, obviously testing along the way. Then I'm good to go?

How much sand did you get for yours, if yours is a similar size. I don't want to order it and find I've got too much or too little. Same with live rock too.

This is what I'd like it to finish up looking like, roughly!
