Wife dictated the placement of the rocks for the Aqua Scape.
20 pounds araganite (5lbs live)
15 pounds reef rock
8 pounds lace rock
250w Hamilton Halide Fixture with 2 36w PC actenic bulbs
AC70 converted into mini refugium
100w RENA Smart Heater
I built the stand from 2x4s and some 1/2" plywood. I used 1/2" black steel pipe to make the stand that the light hangs from. The stand will hold my dream tank one day (24" cube)
Back of the tank is painted with Krylon Fusion (Black Satin)
I'm hopeful that this weekend we'll pick up a few choice pieces of Live Rock to seed the tank. I also need to get some Chaeto and some other living additives soon. My goal is to seed the tank and let it sit until Christmas for good pod and bacteria growth on the rock.
My stocking plans are as follows:
20 Dwarf Ceriths
4 Large Nerites
5 Blue Legs
10 Florida Ceriths
1 Fuzzy Chiton
1 Skunk Cleaner
1 Emerald Crab
1 Peppermint Shrimp
1 Ball Tipped Anemone
2 True Perculas
1 Falco Hawkfish
1 Royal Gramma (Possibly)
I haven't really sat down to list out what corals I want to keep, but I know that I want zoanthids more than anything. Some of the SPS and LPS look cool, but only a few I think I'd own at the moment. I'd be big into a plate coral I think.
Let me know what you think. I'm excited.
