A 55 Gallon Makeover
Crushed coral, a canister filter, and bits of old bleached coral skeleton - that's what my first SW aquarium came with when bought used from a neighbor. I added LR and replaced other things, but was on a strict budget and mostly tried to work with what I had. After a while I knew I needed to upgrade, but would have to take down the tank to do so (not possible for a long time). Sooo, I moved, which gives me a nice opportunity to give the system a much-needed makeover
-Euro-Reef RSA135 Skimmer w/pump
-48" TEK T5 HO Light
-CPR CS50 Overflow & Aqualifter pump
EcoTech MP10 EcoTech MP40
-Mag 5 return pump
-2x Mocha Clowns - Mated Pair (Amphiprion ocellaris)
-Chiseltooth Wrasse (Pseudodax moluccanus)
-Yellow Tail Blenny (Ecsenius namiyei)
-Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis)
Note: I didn't end up using the eggcrate stand, the skimmer works fine without it! Also, I wish I could have made the skimmer compartment larger, as in order to take out the pump, I have the take out the whole skimmer with the pump, it's quite a pain.
