ok so i have a spare 5 gal
tank and some spare plexiglass. what i want to do is make the built in filtration on the back wall. i was thinking about 1 1/2" wide. i have some extra black sand in my freshwater tank i could steal it from. i will rinse it to make sure it is suitable for the tank. i also have a powerhead rated for 100 gal
/hour which i will use for the back wall fltration(i know its called a fuge i just like saying back wall lol) i was going to put a sponge in the first compartment, live rock rubble in the second compartment and maybe some filter floss in the third. i may add an extra powerhead later depending on the flow i am getting. and also are there any reccomended fuge designs? like baffle placements? i was going to order theCORALIFE 9"
2X9 watt fixture. will this be enough to grow most soft corals? will i be able to have any fish in this tank or would it be more like shrimp and snails and stuff. am i missing anything? so for things i will need the list is as follows:
50 watt heater
sound about right? besides the live rock, rubble and corals? i was originally going to do a smaller tank but i would like more stocking options. i have no problems with doing weekly or even daily waterchanges to keep the tank pristine. thanks for the help.
