Recommended Posts

If_Only

So I have decided on keeping a fluval 13.5 as my first reef tank, I maintain one at my LFS I help out at, so im not completely new, and im curious about my stocking, I was thinking about keeping one clownfish (Ive heard this is ok) so my stock list will be below

 

Equipment

 -Korelia 425gph powerhead

 -Hipargero 30W LED

 -InTank media basket running chemi-pure blue, sachem matrix (just because ill have a spare compartment) and poly filter pad.

 -Eheim Jäger 50w heater

 -ATO micro

 -5-10 Lbs of dry rock, how ever much fits my scape.

 -10 lbs of Fiji pink Arag-alive

 

Corals (Just what im starting with)

 -Multiple types of leathers

 -Zoas

 -Hammer coral

 -Frogspawn

 -Kenya tree

 -Elegence (I know it might out grow my tank but I LOVE them)

 -Candy cane

 -GSP (separate rock)

 -Monti cap


Fish & Inverts

 - 1-2 narssarius snails

 - 1-2 torchus snails

 - 1 Cleaner shrimp

 - 1 Occ. Clownfish

 - 1 Clowngoby

 - 1 neon goby or firefish

 

Thoughts? Anything that should be changed, is there too much.

Sounds good. Just stock slow and it should work out. Looking forward to seeing it come about!

Ya sounds like a good plan.

 

I'd add a mesh lid if you plan on the firefish. They are skittish and jump alot. I'd also add it before the clown.

From a bit of googling it would appear they are diatoms.

Are you sure this is the correct forum discussion?

When I went in to buy my fluval evo there was a Red Sea max 170 on discount and bought that... probably should have said that, I got this tank because then I can try a wrasse (favorite fish)

Fair enough. That’s my next tank. Fancy starting a build thread for that?
