M_Wonnacott Posted January 19 Share Posted January 19 (edited) Hi all I am working on setting up a 15gal fluval flex tank that will eventually, once cycled, house a few small fish (pink skunk clown and royal gramma is what I am thinking so far open to other suggestions that would work). I have a few questions as I continue to plan my build. Note I am in Canada so some items are harder to find here. Filter media? What it the best choice for media for the flex 15? I have ordered this media tray https://www.etsy.com/.../fluval-flex-9-and-15-gallon... and some filter floss Also got a fluval sea mini Skimmer for the first chamber. Light? I am just wanting to do soft corals to keep things simpler but know I will need to change out the light I have two I have been looking at https://bigalscurbside.com/coralife-clip-on-marine-led... and https://bigalscurbside.com/fluval-sea-sea-marine-high... and will be changing the lid out to https://www.etsy.com/.../fluval-flex-lid-clear-or-tinted... as we have cats that would likely try to mess with the tank. I know keeping it clean will be a big factor which isn't an issue. list of everything else planned or ordered so far let me know if anything is missing, either to start or plan for adding at a later date. Edited to reflect new additions ordered 15 gal fluval flex tank fritz aquatics saltwater bacteria Dr Tims ammonia Refractometer and reagent heater- https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07HGV7VRW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 sunsun jvp 110 for mixing saltwater (will be getting a powerhead for tank as one of my first after set-up upgrades would love recommendation for one) https://www.jlaquatics.com/.../red-sea-marine-care... https://www.etsy.com/.../random-flow-generating-nozzle... seachem vibrant sea salt is the salt I am looking at Caribsea Arag-Alive20 fink Fuji sand Caribsea Marco Rock- Key largo rock 20lbs (may not use all but will see) Fluval nano sea skimmer Anything else I should be getting right away?
