- My Tanks
- I'm in the process of building my 60 gal glass aquarium into a reef set up its 48L, 24H, and I believe it's 12D. I have a 20gallon sump with a sponge filter and a bubble magus curv 5 protien skimmer sitting in it. A 200 watt heater in the sump as well. I have a Current-USA led light above my glass hood. 1 in of live sand and 45 lbs of live rock Fiji live rock I believe. My tank is currently in it cycling process the tan was set up on January 1st. Salinity is about 1.023 and a half according to my hydrometer. My tank evaporates quit fast so I'm trying to keep my Salinity just under 1.023 because i know it will increase. Heat is still being adjusting in but my house temps fluctuations more that the average home so it's set high on the heater Guage but reads about 76 on my thermometer.
