Hypes Caribbean Bommie

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so my hiatus lasted a bit shorter than I planned. I started my first planted tank but while waiting for it to grow in i decided to setup another saltwater tank.There was one piece of rock from my last scape that I thought would look awesome all on its own. I decided to try a biotope as its something ive never done before. The scape is bommie inspired and will feature livestock from the carribean. The tank has been cycling for the last few weeks and ill probably add livestock in a week or two.

 

Tank:ADA 30-C

Hydor 200w in line heater

70 Watt FNI Halide

Eheim 2213 Canister Filter

 

 

Heres some pics

Thanks man. Well i was setting up the freshwater tank and thought a reef would look awesome next to it. But i wanted to do something a bit different than my normal stocking habits. I was mostly inspired by the tranquility of planted aquascapes. Well done planted tanks always make you reflect on nature and thats my goal with this biotope. I was also inspired by the abundance of life found in coral bommies so that really helped me in deciding on livestock.

 

Looking forward to the new build. I'm liking the clean all glass look so far.

 

Thanks alot ice. Your 12 gallon is coming along great.

Btw do you have pictures of the eheim canister filter?

Have you heard of the fluval g3 canister?? I'm thinking of getting the lily pipes inflow and outflow for it as a filtration mechanism on a Ada 45c. 18 x18x18 for my next build haha.

 

 

How are you liking Ada's quality hmmm?? :)

Gotta love ADA tanks their build quality is second to none. This is the third one ive owned and ive never been disappaointed only amazed at their quality control. Iven never tried the g3 canister but heard good things about it. Ive always loved eheim canister filters quiet and reliable.

 

I'm so happy to see you back in the game. This sounds like another winner, for sure :)

 

 

This is gonna be good!

 

 

Good to see you back at it. Following along :)

 

 

Welcome back, "once an addict, always an addict", LOL. Subscribed !

 

Thanks alot guys i really appreciate it... feels good to be back

 

Cool, are you planning fish that are usually around bommies or whatever fish is compatible, etc.

 

Well im mostly interersted with fish that would be ok long term in such a small tank and wont add much to the bioload.
