Hi, the set up will be a planted aquarium Adana stile, carpet substrate, 3 to 5 rocks, maybe few long leaf plants and bog wood almost cover in moss and fern...
O2 injection, a three stage HMA water filter.
The lighting will consist of 3 cfl, 2T8 timed to switch on on different time individually to simulate the sun's daily cicle... I'm planning to use a reflector for the main bulb that absorb light when bulb is on and continue to glow for a few hours simulating moon light....
Canopy will be made of Corian ( high polished black with 2 pc fans....
I'm getting over exited!!!!
Two external filter to do the in-flow and out-flow of a 55 gallon sump filter refugium.
The FISHES!!!
Discus, terra and two motoro or similar stingrays...
