Hello Folks,

I'm new in the forum, I've read a lot of threads as a guest. Did contribute a lot for me! Thanks for the experts

 

This is my first time building a saltware aquarium.I have running this for a month.

I've cycle with some bio accelerators and live rock.

 

Here are my specs:

In acuarium:

  • Koralia 240 Gph
  • Atman water pump 100 Gph
  • Digital thermometer
  • Lights T8 1x Aquastar 15 watts / T8 1x Blue Moon Actinic 10.000k 15 watts and 30 Watts Led 6.500 K

 

In sump (Back)

  • Atman Water pump 530 Gph (Return Pump)
  • Atman Heater 200 watts
  • Red Sea Skimmer (Airlift) 60 G

Water Parameters

  • Salinity: 1.024
  • Temp: 78°-80°
  • pH: 8.0
  • Alkalinity 8,9 dKh

 

Invertebrates

  • 1 x Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis)
  • 1 x Trochus Snail
  • 1 x Anemone BTA (Ectamae Quadricolor)

 

SPS

  • Zoanthids
  • Anthelias
  • Pachyclavuraria

After a few days I found on the rock a Bristle Worm (I've recorded with my mobile)

The anemone is establishing on the tank since I got it in the last week, so she is moving around.

The tank looks great ;) I wish I could say the same for the anemone. You may have gotten it to soon,hope I'm wrong and it lives a lone and healthy life. Good luck very nice.

Thanks Dling.

My intention is to do water changes weekly (25% ROI) until I establish the best parameters to stabilize the aquarium environment.

 

I've made my first water change last week due to high leves of nitrate (almost 12ppm).

I've add to the water Biodigest and Iodine in blisters for nano (60 Liter)

Most people suggest having the tank up and running for a whole year before attempting an Anemone and BEST case bending the rules 6 months. You jumped in a little too early and as dling said, that anemone doesn't look good. Unfortunately I don't think he will make it.

 

Other than that, tank looks good. My only suggestion is keep the rock at least 3" to 6" away from the glass so you can clean the glass.

 

Also can you elaborate on your light?

Thank you!

 

My anemone is attempting to get used to the new aquarium.

I have 2 T8 Aquastar Actinic / Blue Moon and 30 watts of 1 watt led.

Anemones don't tolerate high levels of nitrates!

Do more frequent water changes until nitrates are gone!

And watch your anemone daily!
