Aquapod RoLL CaLL

Recommended Posts


I have the AP24 and the only mods I have made are to upgrade the pump to a 1200 and took everything out of the back and replaced it with liverock rubble and a pura pad. I still have the stock lighting and nothing too crazy as far as livestock. There is a tri-colored fairy wrasse, a starry blenny and a yellow watchman goby along with a serpent star, pom pom crab, and pistol shrimp.


I am completely obsessed and want to upgrade, but I don't really think the big tanks are as pretty as these. I just want more room to play.


Here ya go....

Used older (oldest?) version of the AP24 with the following:


70w MH (had hood originally but orig owner removed fan, burnt lens guard and screwed up the bulbs)

MJ1200 replacing the stock pump

50w heater in back chamber with pump

ChemiPure & Purigen in back chamber

Solana skimmer "wedged" into back chamber (thanks for the tip EZ)

unknown amount of live sand (bought tank set up off eBay used)

unknown amount live rock to start with and then I added even more (came with huge chunks)

way too tall (38") stand (came with set up)

CPR in tank (sm) fuge with caulerpa , chaeto, bit of live sand

Hydor nano powerhead that is not in tank yet since not sure where I want it placed

Hydor Flo that I can't hook to outflow spigot (ancient AP, don't get me started, can't hook up loc line I bought either, same reason!!)


small CUC (asst snails, blue legged hermits)

2 yellow clown gobies


No corals....but want mushrooms and zoanthids (anyone selling for cheap to ship to Az, pm me !!)

Took my stock top off and replaced with a coralife 150 watt MH. Also replaced stock pump with MJ1200. Had the tank set up for little over a month now and have 20lbs of live rock and 10 lbs of live sand. Using a Koralia Nano for water circulation within the tank. Took all the bio media out except for the stock sponge and puts 5 lbs of live rock rubble in the first chanber undreneath the sponge. Running a hundred watt heater. Livestock is one false perc and a coral banded scrimp for now....Bill...
