cj10488's 55g Agressive Tank

Well I figured that Since I was bored I would take a picture of my 29g Agressive Tank..

Update 04/30/04: This tank has since been upgraded to a True Vu 55g Acrylic

The Tank inhabitants
Damsel
Baby Humu Trigger

Friday will also house a Baby Volitan Lion fish (Died)

As for Liverock there is 30lbs of LR and 30lbs of Base rock Thanks to Liverocks.com

Corals..
Zoos
Xenia
Browned out purple Acropora Colony That started to RTN in main tank.

Lighting
1 55w Catalina 10k PC bulb
1 55w Hamilton Actinic PC bulb

Waterchange schedule..
When I remember

Testing..
Seachem's Ammonia Alert
Other than that no other testing is really done yet.

Tank has been up for approx 11months.. Used to be a "unwanted Habitants" tank... I threw in a Baby trigger that I got on sale and a local Friend gave me a damsel that he no longer wanted.. Its been extremely nice having something to look at in this tank finally.. I have ordered a Baby Volitan Lionfish as well.. Future plans for the tank are to tank it down and replace it with the Main 55g tank after the main tank gets upgraded to a 240g Long. Everything will be plumbed together thru the main system with a 240g Long Reef tank and the 55g Agressive tank setup in an L shape.. Hopefully I will be able to get a stand built in an L shape to house all the equiptment... The empty 29g will become a secondary Fuge to the main system for even more nutrient export... All this will happen in approx 9 months for those that Know the current inhabitants are going to get too big for the tank... If need be I have a friend with a spare 55g that I can setup if the fish grow too rapidly.. I am also getting a 5.5g NanoReef Bowfront for my computer desk that should be showcased within a few months...

Thanks Again,
James

Yeah the velvet is bigger than the Trigger but neither one bothers each other.. The Huma Trigger doesnt back down and chases the Velvet around LOL.. I cant wait to get the Baby volitan in there...

He doesnt seem as mean as my Yellow tail thats in my Main tank LOL.. My yellow tail Draws blood from me now if he gets a good bite on me when my hand is in the tank.. As soon as I can catch him he is gone.. LOL.. He can become trigger or Lion food..

No problems with the trigger and the corals? I thought triggers were not reef safe?

I have a 29 gal that has hitchhiker crabs in it and I have yet to decide what to do with it. It started out as a curing vessle, then as a QT and not I hate to take it down since it is cycled and all

It is either going in the fish closet or my office ...

The trigger so far has not bothered the Zoos or the Xenia.. the Browned out purple Acropora Colony That started to RTN in main tank I could care less about but he doesnt seem to bother it either...

Have you thought about a smaller lion fish like the Radiata or one of the other smaller ones..

I wouldn't go my route as its more of an evil plan to get my Large 240g reef tank a bit sooner... Get the wife addicted to the fish while they are babies and then force her into an upgrade for them as they wont survive in such a small tank... Thats Why I got babies so she has time to get addicted.. LOL I have already made her aware
"Honey those fish are going to need a bigger tank.. Not right now but in a few months like 6-9... You can Have my 55g and I can get a bigger tank for me..." LOL



Yes I am evil,
James

Funny thing about it is the 75gal I upgraded for my wife. I was going to put a baby Pork puffer in the 29 and get a 55 gal sometime later. I have always liked puffers. She has lost interest in the 75 so I don't know if I want 2 tanks ...

Can't waste an established set up though

MTS has me, ARGHHHH

Good Luck with your future upgrades.

Careful with those babies. A friend of mine (over 200 lbs) got stung by the dorsal spines of a dead baby volitan and was knocked unconscious immediately. Venemous things!!
