I have been working with Saltwater tanks for 20 years (15 FO
), (5 Leather reef). There is still so much to know, it's almost "maddening". I'm back in Washington State after a two year visit to Hawaii. I currently have a 65 gl. FOWLR
, Fluval 405 w/ surface skimmer, 6 PCs in 3 pairs (for a morning, mid-morning, noon and back down again) ripple lighting effect, and a pair of water moving jets. The set-up has been running for about a year and I'm getting ready to begin adding soft corals.
Before Hawaii, my 55 gl. with a giant bubble tip, soft corals, and fish looked ok, but now I want the "Oh my God!" effect that only a vibrant reef can yeild. Yes, yes, water quality is going to be a bear!
