2 Rods Onyx pairs (both Laying)
Darwin F \ SNowflake M (Laying)
Snowflake F \ Darwin M ( switching out the male for a Super snow male this week)
Single 4" black saddle female (male coming soon)
Future pairs in the next month:
Chrysopterus ( replacement for dead pair that a heater misshap killed)
Occy pair or 2
only pair not in the basement breeding system is the Tricinctus cause i have them in my starfire solana in all their glory.
i am trying to make my system as cost efficient as possible. I have 2 return pump, and LED lights.
but i am looking to make it better all the time. my electric bill is high enough.
system consists of 2 custom acrylic 40g tanks divided into 4 sections each. 2 drilled 20g tanks for larger pairs. a blue stripe pair is going in one and the other the saddle back pair.
my return pump is a reeflow Dart gold ( 4300gph
Lights are the true lumen 48" LED strips over each 48" tank and i am getting 2 x 24" strips for the 20g tanks.
since my basement is cool i have 2 x 400w theo heaters with 2 x 200w theo heaters to make my water 84 - 85. i cant keep the temps stable like i want. you would think that with 1200w of heaters, i could keep my water steady at 85.
RKE to keep the lights and heaters somewhat in check.
my monster skimmer is a etss 1000 beast! but i am getting a new octopus extreme external 3000 skimmer whenever they are off backorder from premium aquatics.
i also have a coralife 36wUV on the system as well.
this system is relatively new since i finished building it last month.
my fav piece of equip is my new milwaukee salinity refractometer! it is so worth the $100 or so i paid.
a few weeks ago i had a serious mishap. i had a marineland heater explode in my 75g sump and spewed voltage and crap in my tanks and ended up killing a few pairs. so i am waiting for my claim check to be mailed out to me for my dead pairs and nems i had.
ill post a few pics here and a few other posts so bear with me i have a few pages of pics!!
i took these tonight of the plumbing and some equip. dont have a full front shot, but ill add one tomorrow after lights on.
pairs... crappy pics and camera sorry.
ill get more tomorrow.
