qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq< :blush: Sorry about that all. My keyboard started acting up last night so I had to shut down the PC and start again :angry:. I have a DeskPro by Compact. I think it might be a collecters item by now. I also am on dialup by Walmart so I'm probably at the bottom of the PC chain.

 

The post was supposed to be

...I have become hooked on nano reef systems...and so on and then I came back to do an edit and my keyboard went wacko.

 

So this is day 2 of my 5.5 nano Allglass tank

2 hot magnums at opposite ends w/flows meeting in middle for turbulance

25wt heater

36wtx2 PC

15lbs live sand

6lbs fiji LR

 

 

Can't for sure decide on livestock but probably small soft corals and a coral beauty and some sandshifters, snails.....thanks for looking.

Exactly. I would get rid of some of that sand. Rethink your livestock.

Yes, that is a lot of sand and I have been working on a 1.25 gallon Slimline beverage container I found at WalMart that I am modifying to hang on the back and give 1 extra gallon pumped by a Surge 300 80GPH.

I wanted at least 2-3 inches sand so a dead zone will exist for natural denitrification.

I have pretty much planned on weekly water changes.

Anyway, the caontainer is about 14"x3"x10" and has a wide mouth screw lid and a open/close spout. It is clear and fairly rigid. I plan on moving the heater into it. Cost was $6.
