29 gallon: R.E.E.F Tank

Recommended Posts

How many and how bad are the dead spots? I'm pretty sure any tank will have some. Just try and minimise it, if you can get rid of it via Turkey baster I wouldnt overly worry. 

 

Is the watchman still going strong? You should seriously submit one of those shots to the photo contest as well btw

I really like this one on the right, but it’s a bit more than what I want to pay for😂. It looks like molten lava

Oh really? You think that it was good enough for that? How do I do that? Which photo should I submit? The watchman is also going very strong. He likes to cuddle with my hand, I’ve never seen a goby like that😂. He’s a cute goby

Thank you very much, I would not be where I’m at without everyone’s help. You all have helped me so much. I probably would have shut down my tank my tank a long time ago if it wasn’t for everyone’s support.

I was actually planning on buying a jaboe crossflow wavemaker. Would that help?

Jebao is not that reliable. If you can afford it check out the IM wavelink wavemaker. The desktop size will be more than enougj and costs around 99$

Alright, I’ll check it out. That’s about the same price as the Jaboa crossflow anyway

Hopefully next months contest would be for crabs. Jerry might have a chance at winning, but I know that tamberav and his clown crab will put a run in for Jerrys money😂

Is it powerful enough for a 29 gallon tank?

I run mine at the 2nd speed out of 9 😉 my tank is a lagoon 25g so 24 inches long. And it's wider than yours. Even at 30 inches long it'd be more than enough IMO 😉

Mine is the IM Wavelink DC flow pump desktop. it's the 1500gph per hour. That one is 99$ at marine depot. The bigger one is the midsize one but the desktop size will be perfect for your tank 🙂 https://www.marinedepot.com/wavelink-dc-flow-pump-1500-gph-auqa-gadget-desktop-innovative-marine

Ok, thanks. And this will be able to get most of the dead spots?

It will help for sure! You will have to play with it to find the perfect spot! Then I suggest you take one of your powerhead and put it near the surface to provide some nice water flow on top😉

Ok, so I’m having an issue that is kinda serious. All of that algae that I ordered has almost disappeared completely. There is one thing left and it has no leaves and it’s almost see through. I don’t know what happened to the algae. My watchman I know was quite interesting in it and kept trying to grab it to make it a part of his nest, so he could’ve possibly of gotten a hold of it.

When I lost my Macro's it was due to a lack of nutrients, they went pale and translucent 

Took it out after that
