Subliminal's 29g endevour

Recommended Posts

I started out in sw with a 55 gallon, but made a lot of wrong moves. Well water, power filters, overfeeding, crushed coral, incompatible fish, snails that knock over corals...basically it was a catastrophe.

 

So, I decided to downgrade and do it right.

 

Actually, I developed ich in my 55g, and had to remove the fish to save them.

 

So they went through a rigerous 8 day QT session, and I released them to their new home.

 

Equipment:

29g tank

2 maxijet 1200s

CPR Aquafuge with chaeto

~50# live rock

40# live sand

Hamilton Tech (old skool) 4x55 PC hood with 2x6500k and 2xActinic

 

Fish:

Pygmy Hawk

Pair juvi True Percs

Pair Blue/Green Chromies

 

Inverts:

5 nassirius snails

6 hermits

BTA

...I just say a little serpent star today

...I also just found some sort of little clams

 

Corals:

Pink Anthelia

Pulsing Xenia

Orange Digi

3 or 4 types of zoos

Candy

Blastos

Frogspawn

Some kind of hard leather with soft polyps

Brown Star Polyps

Hairy Shroom

2 different kinds of shrooms

Some kind of hard branching coral..too small to tell yet.

 

Fuge:

Live Sand

Live rock (and I do mean one)

Chaeto

 

Also have some hair algae growing right now. ;)

This one is the favorite of all my zoos. It incidentally hasn't been open like this for about a month:

Believe it or not, these are supposed to be brown yellow and pink. Funny what being closed for a few months will do:

Xenia and Blastos doin' great!:

Still have some hair in there, but that's gotta be eating nutrients at a great rate, especially considering I'm using the 'correct' water now adays.
