littlemeggido Posted February 9, 2009 Share Posted February 9, 2009 It's a 3g Picotope (JBJ). So far everything is the stock equipment. Eventually I plan on upgrading the lighting and changing out the filter. It's been running for one week with about 5 lbs of Carib Sea LS, about 3.5 lbs of base rock. Yesterday I added about 1 lb of uncured LR. I will be letting this cycle for a few weeks before adding anything. Sorry, no pictures yet. I will probably be taking out some rock as it seems like a little too much. At this point, i'm thinking about the cuc that I will add later when the time is right. I can't figure out what to get, i'd like to stay away from crabs and go strictly snail but i'm not sure which snails and how many of each. Any advice about this? I can't wait until this is done cycling. The other question I had was about lighting. I wanted to add some T5's but in my searching, I have not been able to find any for this size tank. The shortest i've seen are 24" which is twice the length of this tank. It seems like they make them shorter, i've seen the bulbs at the LFS but I haven't found any fixtures. It seems that the shorter size are only in the Marineland AIO hoods. If I can't find T5's for this size, i'll most likely end up with the Dual Satellite which i've seen on many tanks here and think they look really nice. That's all for now, hopefully i'll be abl to update later with some pics. I don't have my computer at the moment (i've been forced to use an alternate) so I can't download them. Link to comment
