    Phantomwerkz - 29g v2.0

    15 years ago or so I started my first foray into a salt water aquarium. First up, was a 29g standard glass FO setup that eventually transitioned to a FOWLR with a bunch of acquired LR. Equipment was pretty stock and basic though I ran a Skilter250 alongside an Aquaclear 20 (I think) along with a couple of small Powerheads. Call it beginners luck, though I had a couple of resources to help along the way, I didn’t have too much trouble with it. This tank was up for only 1-2 years along with a 15g Tall that we moved the LR into and then lost due to an exploding thermometer. Can’t recall why exactly it was broken down, I’m thinking I had a heater failure or possibly a crash but we also ended up moving and were unable to have a setup in the new rental. Fast forward to being in our own home for a couple of years now and getting back to the point that we’d like to setup another Aquarium. A LOT seems to have changed and though I thought a 29g was small for a salt water tank before, I LOVE seeing all the Nano and Pico setups that seem to be possible now. I’m trying to be smart though and sticking with part of my philosophy that I “think” served me well last time. Go bigger on equipment in the sense of do not go with bare minimum specs for filtration and flow, aka tank turnover rate. Also, take it SLOW so that’s the plan as well this time and I’m doing more research than before and trying to get my game plan in order. Still have the old 29g glass tank, stand and hood that I planned on using. Having thought about it sitting all this time as well as finding out about Petco’s $1/gal. tank sale, it seemed this would be a no brainer decision. So, on Black Friday checked in to find the $1 sale going on and one 29g tank in stock… SOLD. Went ahead and grabbed a glass top as well. Will still clean and test my old tank and glass top and either find another use or send it on it’s way for a few $’s. The plan for now is basically a FOWLR tank setup again with similar stock featuring at least one pair of Clowns. My wife and I enjoyed our previous clowns and so that’s where we start. She would prefer a FO setup, but I think the health of the tank and maintaining it would be easier with biological filtration so LR created with our own clean dead coral pieces along with maybe 10 lbs of dry rock are my thoughts. I’d like to move towards a more reef setup at some point but I think it’s either a ways down the road on this setup or possibly I do something along the lines of a 10-20 setup for myself (when I can come up with a suitable location). So, here’s what I’ve decided to start out with. Starting Equipment: Aqueon 29 Gal. Standard Glass Tank Aqueon Versa Top Hinged Glass Top Aquaclear 110 HOB Filter - 500 GPH Seachem | Tidal 110 HOB Filter Current Orbit Marine 24"-36” LOOP LED (x2) Current Pump Manifold Current eFlux Wave Pump - 660 GPH (x2) Inkbird ITC-306T Temperature Controller IOAOI 100W Heater (x2) Carib Sea Arag-Alive Fiji Pink Sand - 30 lbs ARC Reef Reef Stacker Dry Rock - 25 lbs Various Dry Clean Coral Skeletons (x2) Instant Ocean Sea Salt Instant Ocean Reef Crystals Sea Salt Instant Ocean BIO-Spira Instant Ocean Marine Conditioner Planned Upgrade Equipment: InTank Media Basket for 110 Skimmer (AQUATIC LIFE 115 Mini Internal Protein Skimmer/Filter purchased but undetermined if using) Current eFlux Wave Pump - 660 GPH Instant Ocean Reef Crystals Sea Salt ATO (TBD) Current Stock: Ocellaris Clowns - x2 CUC - Snails (Mexican Cerith, Dwarf Cerith, Nassarius and Nerites) and Blue Legged Hermits Diamond Goby - x1 Bicolor Blenny - x1 Banded Coral Shrimp - x1 Planned Starter Stock: CUC (Snails, Hermit Crabs, Peppermint Shrimp) Yellow Watchman Goby - x1 Tail Spot Blenny - x1 Firefish - x1 Shrimp (Scarlet Skunk Cleaner?) - x1 Additional Starter Stock Choices: Bangali Cardinal - x? Blue/Green Chromis - x? Dottyback - x1 Thoughts, Ideas and Suggestions are appreciated and I plan on combing through this site a TON as I gather more insight and inspiration.

    Diving back in w/29 gal setup

    After a long layover, this beginner is getting ready to jump back in with another 29 gallon glass setup. Originally was going to re-use old equipment but have decided to start all new, as it's sat for 15 years. Right now I need to settle on a new stand and hood setup and then should be ready to go. Originally trying to plan ahead for later on being able to go to sump/refugium, but I'm now thinking I'm just going to stick with HOB for this setup. Journal will be here. Previously, in my attempt to ease maintenance, my thoughts were to make sure I had more than necessary filtration, flow and heat requirements. I still feel like this is a good method so I'm looking at the following equipment as my starting point: Filter - Aquaclear 110 HOB Filter Powerheads - Current eFlux Wave Pump - 660 GPH (x2) Lighting - Current Orbit Marine 24"-36” LOOP LED Heating - IOAOI 100W (possibly x2) Substrate - Carid Sea Arag-Alive Fiji Pink Sand, 10# Dry Rock and Various Dry Clean Coral Skeletons Here's what I'm looking at for a couple of questions to start with: HOB AC110 - Setup and run stock to start, upgrade to InTank Media Basket with Skimmer or something in between? Skimmer - Since I'm trying to keep things as tidy as possible with a HOB setup, my initial thoughts are for something to fit the InTank Media Basket. Recommendations (both in or out)? Thanks!
