I have a spare 5 G hex with a broken light laying around. It's been used for all sorts, it was originally set up as a dwarf puffer tank but i relocated the puffer to his very own 20 G, It was also used as a hospital tank when one of the puffers was on his last fins (poor boy). Now it's just wasting space in my closet under the stairs. So i decided to give SW a try.
Today i bought my RO water from the lfs and it's currently sitting waiting to have salt mixed in. The tank needs a rinse out and i think i've found the perfect spot for it in my living room.
I don't like the filter this tank has and went to look for a different HOB filter but couldn't decided which one would fit better, so i'll get that tomorrow. Overall i'm scrapping the stock hood/light/filter. I'll be making a new lid out of plastic at work, i did it for my 20 g and it works great.
I'm going to pick out live rock tomorrow, probably 5 or 6 lbs and then let it cycle. I don't have a light yet because i'm waiting for a gift card from my bank rewards program so i can put the giftcard towards it.
With this tank i was thinking of keeping it pretty simple, maybe doing a garden of zoas. I'm not too sure on sticking of cuc yet, i'm open to suggestions.
I love my puffer, he's called Button, i seriously have to stop myself buying more since i don't have the room for them. I'd love a dogface puffer one day. They really are just like dogs.
