Hi all

 

So after a few years out the hobby I'm setting up a 100L 81cm x 36cm x 45cm (LxWxH). So far I've got the tank and some dry rock so know I've got a few bits left to source.

 

Light wise I'm looking at the 150W Ledzeal Malibu S as I've heard good reviews.

 

Skimmer I'm looking at the Reef Octopus 100 HOB.

 

The tank itself is a Juwel aquarium so has their built in corner filter. My thoughts with this is I'm going to keep it there as it hides the heater and has the filter pump in for circulation. I was also going use a bag of rowa and carbon in their too.

 

What are peoples thoughts and suggestions on this?

Welcome to NR. I am not familiar with that tank so no comment or suggestion on your set up. Another member will probably help you out there. Good luck with your tank and welcome back to reefing.

My only suggestion is get an MP10 for your display area circulation. It's a little overpowered for a 20g-ish but you won't have to run it at full strength so it should last longer. You'll have no cord running into the display area and the speed/mode controls are awesome.

So here is the tank cycling. I won't be using the lid or in built lights when I start stocking it mind.

Sorry about the delay in updates. Here is the tank to date, all settled in and running well. Had a couple of light issues and a small flood along the way mind!

Looks like sponges to me. They're a good thing

Tank looks good. 

 

What powerhead are you using? It blends in well.

a nice little thing to have with these smaller tanks is the Ammonia alert badges. They have helped me many times through the years.

So unfortunately I had a bit of an issue over the weekend and lost both my clowns and royal gramma. They were fine on Friday but all died by Monday. There was no sign of anything on them and the rest of the fish seem fine so I'm a bit unsure of what happened? With this I'm not going to add any more fish for a month and see what happens with the remaining fish. The current stock is a scooter blenny, twinspot blenny and red banded goby. 

 

Any recommendations on what fish to add next so I can do some research?

So here is the tank currently. Looking forward to seeing how everything grows out.
