CSalt's 20l part 2

Recommended Posts

I forget what was the light fixture and bulbs on the 20l? Which tank do you like the look/shape of more?

Aquatic life 4×24. Bulbs are actenic, blue+ coral+ puple+. The actenic replaced a blue+.

 

Looks wise, it's kind of a toss up. The cube looks cleaner and doesnt have a huge fixture over it. Dont like the rimmed look but with flow its easier to get waves with the 20l. Coral color is better imo with t5. I dunno, just thinking about it. Can always setup two tanks lol.

edit: to be fair everything has been doing good under LED. Willing to bet most of my issues in the past have either been parameter issues or just changing stuff too much. I need to just let things be and do their thing.  

All this came about when I was looking at some sps dominant T5 tanks. Thinking, "dang, I want that."

Don't put gsp on your main rock. I may have to try and break the rock up to get it off and rescape. Flesh is too thin to peel off. Maybe try and sell off some of this xenia and kenya while i'm at it.

Impaled a nem with a piece of birdsnest, not too happy about that.

i'll take a pic when the water clears up some.

 

The gramma is loving all the new hiding places so I guess there's that.

They'll be fine. still kinda pissed but they'll get over it. on the right side of the rock you can see a baby RFA.

The scape is kinda growing on me. Could use a larger powerhead to replace that 425. Maybe another RW-4. 

 

Have a ton of flatworms. Exploded overnight. Hopefully they're just aceol.

On an unrelated note. They planted pico is doing really good.

Stand done. Need to make a hanger for the light fixture. Probably just get some wire and bend some barstock.

Been getting patches cyano lately. Even though I clean the sand every week and still only feed every other day. Didn't really start to happen until I bumped up the GFO a little and cleaned the algae off the back glass a few weeks ago. It's just out competing the rest I guess.

Some sexy t5 pics

I like the last one. They have a hint of blue in some spots but the camera isn't picking it up.

Would like some with red though.

Duncans are loving the t5.

Sunny D zoas are still closed. 

Hammer coral isn't as bushy as it used to be but all the heads are splitting. Not sure if it's because of this or a light/ flow issue. Not much flow on the one side of the tank. Have an Icecap gyre 1k coming, should help. 

Wish I had a par meter. Have Coral+ purple+ on for 4 hours, blue+ actenic 7 hours.

Had Caulerpa but was afraid of it going sexual so replaced it with chaeto.  

I'll get around to a FTS eventually.
