Indo Shallow Reef

Recommended Posts

My last tank setup was two years ago, and after browsing around this forum for a while. Lots of amazing shallow tanks in this forum. Inspired me back reefing and decided to make my own shallow tank at home.

sump 22 x 20 x 18

 

skimmer cone with aquabee 2000i rated for 900l locally made in jakarta :D

aquabee 4000 for return pump will also use for chiller

This looks really promising! Your old tank was beautiful, what happened to it? I hope it didn't crash!

 

What stocking plans do you have for this tank? And mixed reef? SPS focused? LPS/softies?

 

Following along :)

Thank you for stopping by Paigee, I was too busy after my first born daughter. I gave it away all of my corals and the tank to my close friend. and he crashed it after 2 weeks :tears:

I think it would be sps focused and some lps on the sandbed

Wow. You're old tank looked great. Do you plan on keeping some blue tangs in your new tank? They look really pretty in small groups.

Thanks NeonTrees

Have not decide what kind of fish for the new one, considering small space. But blue tang maybe :P . I had my eye on 5cm blue tang at nearby LFS. Hopefully they still got them when my tank ready for fishes.

Not yet. As much as I want to fill it up, I'm trying to be patient with the new tank. Hopefully this weekend I'll get something else. That would be a good Father's Day gift. I need to pass this idea along to my wife.
