  2. Zephyr's 3.5 TruVu Journal

    Update - 1) Added ~1.5 lbs of dead live rock this morning 2)Have to wait 1-2 weeks for live rock now, the only marine store in N.Ireland is out of Lr 3)Checked ammonia, it lies at 5 ? I did a retest and it was correct.Could it be die-off from the dead live rock or something else in the tank? Should i do a WC? 4) Removed aquaclear 301 and ordered a tunze mini pump from PA 5) Hopefull order ballast this week 'till Later...

  5. Zephyr's 3.5 TruVu Journal

    Well i was planning on having one fan pulling the warm air out of the hood and one directly onto the water. Yes i have a uv glass shield. The ballast that I am going to get will probably be some random brand, because its extremely difficult to get 70w halides and equipment here, and i take it that a 150w halide ballast wouldn't work, because we have plenty of good 150w ones here. Sorry, i got mixed up with the PC, its a 2 x 18w PC, it fits if theres nothing else under the hood but it diagonally, though its only a temp till i get my ballast.

Thats a wrap for today, i'll try and get pics of it so far in the next few days....
  7. 3.5 gallon tru-vu...

    you probably could notch it, but i dunno if it would be good for the tank. i have a mini and i can fit the smallest hagen tronic by drilling the lid of the ac mini.
  8. 3.5 gallon tru-vu...

    I have the truvu and imo the combo would be fine. Also, I don't think the ac300 fits cos it has a small opening in the back for a filter, its not open the entire length.Ac minis /20s fit perfectly though
  9. Idol Nano

    Easily LiQuiD's but I can't find the pics they're gone from his thread, other than that it would definately be B16a2NR's reefs

    I agree with proraptor on the corals, tho also xenia. Zoanthids are very poisonous so wear gloves and wash your hands...
