    Evo 13.5 First Go

    Well finally took the plunge an got into the marine world. Done a number of tropical set ups but wanted to see if i can handle the big ocean (well small piece). Basically grabbed a deal off of facebook marketplace someone was selling an have done a bunch of reading an just made my own way an seen what happens. 2 pieces of dry rock, 1 i believe artificial live rock (caribe i think the LFS owner said). They went in to start and i ghost fed for the first week small amounts. Dosed bottled bacteria fluval start and added a couple of clowns on day 12 i think it was. 3 hermits 3 nassarius 3 trochus and a cleaner shrimp went in day 14 and right now its day 19 an i think from what ive read im in a diatom bloom??? Ive kept the filter sponge in there but added abit of floss underneath to help and also not going for the skimmer instead im water changing weekly 10% ive filled the first chamber with more synthetic fibre to catch more debris an plan on changing this bi weekly. Il add some pics just wandering if im in the right phase were i should be really and does it 'look' right. Aquascaping is none existent that will come in time an also the upgrades too just want to get this thing settled then plan on going to town on it abit an changing lights intank chamber etc. Also for what its worth clowns are super happy from what i can see never known such an enquisitive species an great little characters. If im doing something blatantly wrong please someone point it out an i can rectify it or if you see anything that looks a problem same again 👍
  2. Found this bundle/kit that includes literally everything non livestock wise that I'd need aside from lighting and testers (and stand but there's one that's made for it that I could get) Is this a decent bundle kit for a beginner to start off a first reef tank with or are some/any of the products low quality/not stuff I should get? https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/40-gallon-nuvo-fusion-pro-aio-saltwater-aquarium-starter-kit-bundle.html
  3. I have kept freshwater fish for awhile now, and I would like to start a nano reef tank with basic corals and live rock along with my hopeful stocking of a yellow watchmen goby, a tiger pistol shrimp, one or so fire cleaner shrimp, 2 ocellaris clownfish, and an anemone such as the bubble tip for the clownfish. Is this a good/realistic goal for a beginner to all this? Any general suggestions and advice about these stocking choices would be appreciated, but I am not looking yet for advice related to hardware and equipment. Thank you everyone in advance!

    Heater burned my anemone

    Overnight, my anemone had parked himself next to the heater. I've since moved it but it looks like some damage has been done. A small area looks dark and retracted. Will this heal and can it get infected or have any long term effects?
  5. I have finally assembled almost everything I need to start my first salt water tank (Biocube 32), other than a bucket and auxiliary heater for mixing which i'll get today, and even though i'm sure this sounds like a pretty stupid question, my biggest quandary is figuring out how to add water to the tank initially. Ideally I would want to add rock, sand, and then water, but i'm not 100% percent sure I will be able to have enough water already mixed in another container to pour all of it in at once. My next idea was to add the dry rock, then most of the water, then add the live sand and live rock, and finally top it off with a little more water to make sure it's completely full. I want to make sure the live rock doesn't have time to dry out and that it is added to water which is around 78 degrees Fahrenheit so there isn't a significant die off. Anyway, i'm not sure if i'm making any sense, and there is a good chance I am making this way more complicated than it needs to be, but i'm just curious how other people have initially set up their aquarium, and would certainly appreciate advice and tips.
