Peewee1467's 25 Gallon Cube

Hello! So I'm going to be setting re-setting up my 25 gallon solona. I'm currently a college student so I have a tight budget. Let's see how it turns out!

Not set on the aquascape yet. You can't tell from looking at the picture, but there are a few flat pieces of rocks that I plan on mounting some SPS to.

 

 

 

Equipment

  • 25 Gallon Solana
  • Kessil A150w 15K LED
  • EcoTech MP10

 

Live Stock

  • ORA Ocellaris Clownfish
  • ORA Misbar Carmel Clownfish

 

For my clean up crew, i plan on adding 5 - 10 Halloween hermits, a few Turbo snails and Trochus snails

 

 

 

 

 

Back chamber where the skimmer went will be converted to a refugium. Not sure what light I'm going to use yet.

 

 

 

sorry for the cell phone pictures!

DIY ATO?

 

I really want a new ATO. the ATO that came with this tank blows. Basically two bottles you fill with RO and flip it upside down. lol holds about 20 oz of water total lol.

 

 

 

Dosed my tank with API's new Quick Start.

 

Supposedly this product consumes ammonia and nitrites instantly. It says "allows instant addition of fish" and it's all natural.

Well I bought my tank used and it looks exactly the same but might not be a Solana.

 

Yeah, I am using waterlevel float sensors off of ebay and I will be placing it in the return section. I will have a 1 gallon reservoir of FW in my stand. I have the same set up on my 20H but in this one I will be hanging the sensor with some acrylic I cut with my dremel and glued together. I can send you a pic later if youd like.

sounds cool. i think ill be manually topping off for awhile. I hate risking overflowing water everywhere. :mellow:

 

 

 

 

 

Got it for free so i decided to give it a try. I will test the params tomorrow. It'd be crazy if there was no ammonia or nitrite, but nitrates huh!? Overnight cycle... HAHA we shall see..

REEF CREST FTW :ninja:

 

I have mine on manual at 90% with a knano 420 while I cycle the tank but once it gets going, reefcrest at 80% seems like the way to go!

 

I just got mines a couple months ago LOVE IT!

You will love the MP10 in there! It worked wonders on my tank. Where are you going to mount it? I've got mine on the left side going across the reef.

i think im going to mount it on the right side since there's more open space.

Maybe 65% for LPS, it all depends on you return and stuff.
