I'm starting small and working with a Marina 10G rimless aquarium sitting on my kitchen island. I lived in Kenya for a number of years and collected my rock from there. My light is a Hipargero Aquaknight A029. For filtration, I'm running an Aquaclear 70 HOB filter. Inside the filter, I have mechanical filtration, along with a submersible LED strip that will be used to grow chaetomorpha on a reverse photoperiod. My rock has been dry for a few years, so it's still curing. As of right now, there is no sand in the tank. In the future, I will be adding a magnificent firefish, an ocellaris clown, and possibly a scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp. For corals, I will be hunting around for cheap, easy frags, including some zoas and mushrooms. This is my first saltwater tank, so I'll be taking it slowly and cautiously. And now for some pictures of the setup!
Hello, I am new to reef tanks and I bought a 60 gallon tall tank to start my reef tank. I am looking for suggestions for lights that will grow coral. Also I am having trouble figuring out a filter, I have heard that hang on back overflow boxes are dangerous, while canister filters sound like the way to go, My tank is not drilled. The dimensions for my tank are 48.5 in W x 12.75 in D x 25 in H. I'm really excited to start this tank. I really need help with a strong enough light for how deep the tank is and that is somewhat budget friendly.
I love looking around amazon and Ive always wanted a 3 or 4 foot tank but I don't have the budget to light one, but I came across this HIPARGERO LED 30w and it has great reviews on amazon and youtube and such. Hows this light really, I would love to see some decent growth from basic LPS and some softies, live Zoas, Toadstools, mushrooms, Leathers, Hammers, frogspawn, candy canes, and elegance coral. How would these lights do, I would have one for about every 18x18x18 space, I know that these don't have a timer so I could just use a separate timer, I would like to try some super basic SPS like Montis and maybe a easy clam. Would these lights do the trick?
