    Reef and painting :D
  1. Update 😄 ! The tank after 3 months running Corals: GSP, Toadstool and Pipe Organ Coral. Fish: 1 Copperband butterfly. CuC: 3 Halloween Hermit Crabs, 3 Trochus snails, 1 cleaner shrimp, 3 star fish and 1 lawnmower blenny. And my 2 mangrove trees is also growing 😄
  2. Update! Some GHA has appeared, the end of the cycle is near ? I will wait for 1 more week to make sure everything is great, and then do a 30% water change. I don’t test for amonia or nitrite, because base on what i have researched, just looking at stages of the display tank will let you know if the cycle is complete or not. In my case, GHA = cycle is nearly completed. Some quick shots before bed, cycling with lights on. I will stock up the tank as soon as possible 😄 , currently on week 3 of the cycle.
  3. Definitely yes ! You can 👌 Just edited my post with the sump pics. Hopefully, that will be enough to grow Macroalgae:).
  4. Thanks Chris, I'm thinking of getting some small fishes that are swimming in group like Chromis or Anthias, perhaps a tang would be nice ? I'm quite afraid that the shallowness of the tank will not allow me to get one. It will be a mixed reef with different kind of LPS, SPS, softies to create a smaller scale of the biotope from nature.
  5. Sure, I will take a pic of it after finish my work and get back home. I am currently in my office.
  6. Hi guys, this is my 425 liters reef tank from Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. It's been cycling for 3 days and I can't wait to pack it with corals and livestocks ( I know, I know, patient is a must for this hobby, I will keep on waiting for it to cycle then :p ). Anyway, do you guys have any suggestions for the livestocks of this shallow tank ? Tank specs: -Dimension: 138cm x 81cm x 38cm -Sump: 100cm x 50cm x 30cm -Chiller: 1HP titanium coil -Skimmer: Octopus Regal 200-S Skimmer -Bio-filter: 65 liters refugium in sump ( still working on it, basically I'm looking for chaeto, caulerpa and some mangroves ). -Lighting: 3x Hydra 52HDs Updated 10:38pm : Just install a cheap DIY LED light for the fuge chamber:D hopefully that will be enough for the upcoming macroalgae. The filter sock is stucked with detritus, will have to clean it up now. The shrimp 🍤 that I put in 2 days ago is decaying with a not-really-lovely-looking form and the smell is just...🤢 And I have turned all the light with skimmer off to let the cycle process faster. Cheers Update 26/05/2018: i decided again to turn the light on and just let the tank cycles . Skimmer is also on and reverse photoperiod for the chaeto which I’m trying to grow it bigger with a manual dose of 5ml Seachem Flourish Iron per week. As I predicted, the diatom is blooming everywhere in the tank. On the tank glasses, the weir of the overflow, sandbed, rocks 🤘. The reason for this, is because I want the diatom to be there and consume all the silicates that presents in the tank itself and they will go away naturally when they are starved out of silicates.
  7. Any update on the Iwagumi 1.0 and 2.0 yet ? Lâu quá lâu quá
  8. Did you give them fresh water often ?
  9. Did you have any salt creeps problem with the rock extruded out of water surface ? And also, how did you keep the air plants alive ? It would be nice to hear some advice from you, thanks.
  10. Absolutely !!! Just got my MAME overflow a few days ago, I will post the tank up as soon as I can.
  11. Cheers, mate! That just what I need to know.
  12. Simple question : Can I actually growing garden moss and plants on to this rock ? Also, will there be any salt creeps or spray overtime ? The picture is not mine, it just there to show my idea
