A Low Tech Story (1 foot cube)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I am doug96 and have been in this hobby for many years now having started at the age of 10 with a 24 gallons nano cube from jbj then I upgraded to a Red Sea Max first gen. which then cracked 2 years ago. Now im back with this small but pretty 1 foot cube with internal filtration system. ;)

 

Filtration

Filter Floss

Zeolith (without reactor)

Activated Carbon

(Now you see why I called this a Low Tech build)

 

Equipments

Hydor pump for internal circulation (main pump)

BeamsWork LEDs (9 watts)

JBJ C-Breeze cooling fan

 

Livestock

A few LPS pieces

Mushies

Zoanthids

1 Captive bred clown bred locally

*Do note that this is a relatively young tank and stocking is still in progress :happy: *

 

Maintenance

Once every 2 weeks 20% water change

Zip the magnets across the glass as and when I'm free

Stir up sandbed and blow detritus off rocks during water change

Light feeding of pellets daily / or on occasions frozen mysis shrimps before water change

 

 

Now what is a tank thread without FTS progression? :P So let me post some of the pix I have and DO comment and leave your thoughts here for me to improve! :) :) :) sorry about this lengthy post though..
