Kim's 30GL

65 posts in this topic

Hi thought I would start a thread of my tank. It is a 30gl with pc lighting tanksspecs are 36x12x16h I have a cpr aquafuge and a seaclone skimmer It was free and it is doing fine. I also used a left over eheim cannister for circulation of water behind the rock. The cannister only has filter floss in it and carbon which I clean out with every water change Which is once a week. This tank has been up since April it was switched over from a 20high which was a little over a year old. Hope you all enjoy!

No nothing new waiting till after the swap. I am planning on moving my 45g into a 55 at the moment. Been picking up things here and there. I still need the tank drilled and the sump made and all that. Not rushing it. Heres a pic of the 45

I'm new to the whole sump thing but think I will be fine can't wait to move that tank over.

Hey Kim

Nice coralline algae! I wish mine would hurry up and get like that. BTW that small rock with Daisy Star polyps looks very bleached. Have they gotten any zooxanthellae back yet?

Beautiful!!! Glad to see one out and about :lol: . Mine still has not emerged from his hole in the back of the tank. I am keeping my lights down in hopes of keeping him calm. Thanks for posting the pics and looking forward to seeing the 75.

Your welcome. Yeah at first it took him awhile before he came out but finally did. That is kinda an older pic he is a little bigger now. I'm looking forward to the 75 also. Had it drlled been sitting on my patio table for a week now just been to crazy to start . I still need to make the sump, get the plumbing and return pump and finish the stand. See I'm moving right along. I am off next week so hopefully I can get some done.

Do I read something about an upgrade?! :D So excited to see the 75G up and running! YEAH!!!

 

That Blackcap Basslet looks amazzzzzzzing!!! BTW have you been to that GC Fish and Reef out in Centereach? I heard they have some really cheap stuff ... he hasn't been around MR too much lately ... buying stuff from hobbyists for his "kids tank" ... maybe he caught that we know he goes back and sells them at his store. :D
