what's the benefit to having the upgrade from nanotuners besides having more wattage?

 

does it really matter for the corals u have?

 

i'm considering it, but i've seen some pretty nice stock tanks with really nice corals.... i'm confused :unsure:

if you get upgraded lights, more heat, then you need to buy a chiller!!!

Originally it was to keep a BTA, which need the light. It also enables me to keep the plate coral on the sand bed + more light is better for the coral.

 

Not true at all. I have a small fan in the back, and my temps stay at 80*. ;)

 

Thanks! :lol: No, I ship out the stuff from the display part ;) The problem with the flatworm exit is that in a small volume, it is hard to control the deaths... so I am just leaving it for now- they are decreasing slowly :)

gtvt44, i was having a decent size flatworm problem a couple of

weeks ago in my 6 week old bc29. i heard everybody say flatworm

exit or a six line. but 1 person suggested a yellow coris wrasse.

i looked into it and it sounded good. so i got one 2 weeks ago.

he just ate em all up. as well as good looking, he's a great addition

to my tank. also my first official saltwater fish.

just a suggestion for what it's worth.

 

great tank, keep up the good work.

Oh, hi :lol:

 

Umm... I spent last weekend moving stuff around and taking care of my neglected tank :)

 

Everything is in good health generally, but not much growth (hmm... last water change was in Sept GASP!) but nitrates are at 0, so I'm ok... I really need to do a WC though :o

 

Maybe pics later this week ;)

Just fine :)

 

I've been working on my FW tanks the past few weeks- gotta get the old 125 up and running... I cleaned all the sand/ fine gravel- HANDFUL BY HANDFUL- 8 Hours... NEVER buy Flourite it's teh suxors as prop would say- all it makes are death clouds and algae blooms :( So I wanted to start a fresh, fresh water tank :)

I'm picturing 125 gallons of the clearest water with the most colorful tetras I can buy ( Thank you Pet Shanty! )

and 55 gallons of discus.

Then, a 5 gallon FW nano

and a 2.5 gallon frag tank...

then hopefully, using federal funding (ie my tax refund :fingerscrossed: ) a 39 gallon CAD.

 

I must admit, that I have been leaning on my cheato a bit too much... so soon enough :)

wow, no water change since sept. so all you did was top off water, and feed your fish?

Feed very sparingly. Yea.

 

Don't do it ;)

Not a wise idea in the slightest. I consider myself EXTREMELY lucky.

What livestock do you have in your tank now? I just added my 2nd clown a few days ago. A new friend for my Perc. I'll post up some pics on my thread.

Well, I have a badazz clown that killed the original one, then a petco "rescue", with his original anemone, and then the cleaner shrimp. The xenia has gone wild, and I basically have it all over... :) Which is sort of what I wanted, but now it's getting to be annoying because it blocked the light from my open brain, which is now recovering in my cheato dish. Yea, I need a bigger tank :P

I definitely feel you on the freaking xenia! I bought some scissors to trim them up. I cut the heads off some big ones and boo-ya! They have grown back! I too need a larger tank. I somehow have to talk the wife into it.
