DXHippie's Office Tank (365 Day Challenge)

Recommended Posts

DXHippie

Hi Everyone,

 

I am finally starting my Office Desktop tank, and it fell in line with the 365 Day Challange.

 

Tank is a Fluval Spec V Evo, and I will be using stock equipment for everything but the media chamber.  That is going to be updated to the inTank Media basket so I can use some better filtration.

 

Eventually, I will swap the circulation pump, but for now, it will remain stock.

 

As for tank details, it will have a slight sand bottom, some rocks that will slowly gather to the back wall, and be populated with the following:

(2) Sexy Shrimp

Zoanthid Garden

Assorted Mushrooms

Maybe a Frogspawn

 

Let me know what you all think, and look forward to this journey with you all.

Is this your first SW tank? Welcome to NR. Will you be using dry rock or live rock? Following.

Sounds like a good plan to start. There are So many tanks in the challenge so far it’s going to be very exciting once everyone is up and running.

This will be my first 5 gallon, but my 6th tank build.  In current operation I have a 150g tall Reef, and a 22g Nano, currently fish only, but all reef safe fish.  

 

This is just a fun little side tank, that I can enjoy at my work desk.  I will be starting it off with dry rock and sand, and starting it with a seed rock from my 150, as well as about some of the salt water.  Everything else will be brand new.

Small update.  Got the sand, rock, and water in the tank.  Going to let it start working itself out.  Will come back on Monday and add the seed rock from my main display tank to really get the cycle going.

Literally a Skeleton reef right now. Is it bad I like this look?
