so I got my 20gal (standard petco)long tank coming together. Still waiting for it to finish the cycle. I decided for lighting I would go with aqua illumination hydra 26 hd. And I must say I am thoroughly impressed. I have it on the 18" flexible arm. I have the light centered on the tank. I have it at the highest point. I have read about different heights etc and settings but it all become obscured and blurred with so many opninions for different size tanks that I don't own. So my question is what's a recommended height for the tank I have? Also what are some settings for the height? Because it matters for the settings and height .... As for the what what I want to grow.... zoas, GSP, torch, a Duncan and a few leather. Possibly a hammer. And way later in the future after the tank is solid a birds nest. I will have two clown fish in the tank along with a shrimp and 5 turbo snail. Of course cleanup first then spacing out the time of putting them in. I may add another fish in the future but for now 2 clown are fine thanks for any advice Protein skimmer not here yet but it will be soon
Hi all! This will be my thread for the revamp of my 26 gallon bow front reef. Long story short, I had to move the tank to a new house about 3 months ago, and ever since then it has been very neglected. It seems to be doing decent, as it is currently lightly stocked (IMO). The reason it has been neglected these past few months is that it is in a room full of other stuff, and I haven't been wanting to get all the other stuff in the room soaked. But, now as I have lived here for a while, stuff has slowly moved out of the room and I can now focus my attention to the tank. Here is what I have stocked in the tank ATM: - 2x ocellaris clowns - 1x yellow watchman goby - 1x Emerald crab - 15 or so snails of different variants - 15 or so blue leg hermit crabs - 1x Shrimp Coral: - 1x acan frag that has 2 heads, has been at a standstill for the past couple months, due to the lack of water changes I have a aquaclear 50 and a koralia nano 425 for filtration in the tank. Inside of the AC50 I have some chemipure and polyfilter pad, along with a stock sponge that came with the filter. I just ordered some more chemipure and polyfilter pads to replace the ones I am currently using. I came here for some help on what I can do that will help me out with: A: Getting these small, hard dots of algae that cover all of my glass off B: Getting rid of some bubble algae that I have attached to my acan frags plug C: Increasing the overall health and growth out of my acan What I had in mind was buying about 6 gallons of distilled water(I know, rodi is the way to go, but we don't have a spot for the rodi filter in the new house yet, and I have been topping off with distilled this whole time and highly doubt that is my problem, as I have seen many other nano reefers use it successfully) from the store tomorrow and changing out 6 gallons once a week for the 3-4 weeks and see how it progresses. Also, any recommendations on a reef salt mix to use? I am currently using the generic instant ocean and feel a reef mix will be the way to go when I run out of the mix I currently have. Any recommendations for a water change schedule and salt mix will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
