We decided to switch over to a reef tank for him since he did so well in school. He wants nemo.
So here's what we've done so far;
Removed plants and fish ,my tank absorbed them.
Threw out substrate and media scrubbed inside of tank and chambers.
Forgot to figure out how to remove scratches on the acrylic.
Intake media basket
Live rock 1 1/2 lbs
Refugium led light back of tank. Had to scrap paint off with a razor.
Removed pad from chamber 3 and replaced with live rock 1/2 lb
20 lbs live sand
14 lbs live rock
Replace pump in chamber 3 with a higher flow. Take stock pump and put into chamber 1 with out flow half way up.haven't ordered pump yet.
Replace stock lighting with retofit leds. Ordered just waiting on.
I had starter fish but took back after I read you can cycle your tank with the live rock. Didn't do this until after I was done scaping the live rock.
Here's pics after scape not very good put hopefully they will get better.
On the back wall there is only 8 pts touching.
The perimeter on the sand is pretty much all touching with very few breaks. Not happy with this but couldn't get structure to hold. Inside is open all the way to the back with columns 6 for support.
I can take my had and put pressure on top of scape wiggle it and nothing moves.
When I can stock I would like to do ;
2 clowns like nemo.
1 blenney. To sift sand.
I would like an anemone to host the clowns.
Are there nano versions for the clowns and blenney?
Will 3 fish be too much?
Should I go with 1-1 or just two clowns?
Any suggest for an upgrade pump for chamber 3?
Can I have an anemone with this size tank that will house clowns?
Suggestions with the scape or over all is appreciated.
Thanks for reading!
