    FSU1Dolfan's 29G Biocube Journey

    Wow this really inspires me to do the same. Do you have heat issues . I noticed you say you have a few degrees more , but do the tank operate without a chiller. Really impress with the plexi glass, it looks good and neet.Whats your lighting again. Oh yes its a Nano Koralia in the back.

    Close loops VS Powerheads

    The main difference between the 2 is, with a closed loop you have less hardware inside the aquarium. and you have the pump outside that provides water flow to the tank, you can have several nozzel at different point in the tank, also less heat transfert to water if pump is external. The down side much more plumbing that can go wrong-clog-pipes to be clean, it also cost more because of plumbing. The powerhead offer more flexibility, you can place them anywhere, even at bottom, with no plumbing(expensive) and no risk of leaks, easyer to clean( put them in vinegar for a few hours and run them, rince and voila) The down sides they take room in your tank, depending on the brand , some are more bulkyer. But if you can stand there presence, they are as effective. They can also had heat, because of heat transfer; some like the vortech have outside motor, so no heat transfer. The choice depend on the tank you want thats all both technology are good, both are downsides, and upsides. From the link Visit My Website you can see from that example that the closed loop is as bulky as a powerhead. The closed loop in my opinion is better for huge system, 100G and up. It would take too many powerheads for a huge system and you would loose too much realestate in the tank. as for closed loop in a small tank 90G minus, powerheads would be more flexible and less trouble, the closed loop in that small system is bulky by the way not to discrete , there are ways of making it better looking and less visible, for one , black pvc or green attrack less attention, and the pluming is too obvious. 2 black powerhead in that system would of been better and has effective.IMO that is.

    Which combination of fish would work better

    Sorry man i don't speak Japaneese i think that j6htw87wty6r6yu5%;f87w389r7yirf is anything but clear.

    Which combination of fish would work better

    The 65g will have a 29 g fuge an external skimmer, Octopus DNW 150 ( 270gph) . The tank has a coat to coast overflow, and two powerheads , Vortech 201 and Tunze Turbelle Nano Stream 6055 about 2000gph flow each. I tend to make a simple rock sculpture japaneese style in the middle. 2 to 3 inch sandbed. Corals 50% SPS 50% LPS algae for tang if possible.

    Well do you have Any suggestion then.
  9. I got my 65G and will soon have to decide on a type of fish for a school of 5 fish. Which one would a be a better candidate. The other fish in the tank could be; 1 convict tang 1 blenny 2 clowns and their anemone. Wich combination would be better, You choose.

    Close loops VS Powerheads

    Well i got my tank today , the stand and the fuge is coming also. The 2 holes in the tank for the over flow and will have 2 powerheads in the tank. Finally made the choice.

    Iodine supplement

    Most definitely thanks. And i wont go by their recommendations either. Two caps per weeks for 3 weeks is too much. I'll go with few drops every 2 weeks. I want to supplement not bleach the tank.That is if its the problem with my Xenias, maybe something else like the KH to high or low, will see.

    Iodine supplement

    Ok thanks, i was going to test first and use only 1/4 of the dose they recommmend and at long intervals. yes w/c would take care of it but i'm out of the country 45 days at a time so every 45 days for w/c for me my tanks is great just the xenia , it may even be not that parameter thats is at fault either. as for the brand i was going for a lesser concentration, kent ( they recommend 2 caps every week for 3 weeks; PHaaa they're crazy i don't want to nuke them just a few drops every 2 weeks after testing of course. I think its reasonable. Will advise. Thanks again.
