So since an old knackered Fluval Spec 3 and Covid robbed me of my office tanks I set up the 5g as a Boredom Breaker. There is something about me that loves the set up stage of a tank and I did it again. I plan to have this on my desk at work. I might even build a little tabletop stand for it, who knows 1 Gallon Reef Jar, set up 13/06/2020. @debbeach13 Figure I can run my tap water test with this. Very basic and think that I might be able to just run this with lights and air stone. I do have a heater avaliable as per the photo 100G Live Sand 500g Cycled Rock 5L Kilner Drinks Dispenser (1.25 Gallon Jar) Air stone rated for 25L tanks (5 Gallon Tanks) Asta 20 LED. Will add once at office 60g Salt per 3.5Litres (1 Gallon-ish, more like 0.85) of water for 1.025 salinity. Actually surprised how quickly everything cleared up. Some bubbles have formed under the curve and I used some floss to skim the surface muck it doesn't look too bad. Had a play around in my dry rock and dead coral selection so think I can hide the air line. Seriatopa skeleton from the RSM crash
My 5g pico has been running since March and I’ve used an Asta 20 on it. My frogspawn and pocillopora did well under it along with the miscellaneous zoas and other lps. The remote broke so the light is stuck at 60-80% and on the whiter side. Would this be sufficient for a BTA? I do have a 30g but it’s only been running for about a month. Most of the livestock from the 5g has been moved to the new tank and is tanking the transition well but I’ve heard mixed things about anemones in new/moved tanks so I’d probably start it in the pico. Would the current lighting work? If not, what would be a good cheap alternative or would it be alright in the new tank? Thanks!
