Hi, everyone! It's been a long time since I appeared here, but I'm doing a new Project, and I'd like to share it with you. The Valley is running since may, 26th. It is a 32"Lx14"Wx20"H aquarium, - No sump - No Skimmer - No Mechanical filtration 🙄😱!!!! Only a half of a Jaubert's DSP, a plenum layer and Macroalgae. Have you ever seen how Jean Jaubert was able to maintain hard corals with absolutely any filtration? It definitly callanges me! I'm trying to apply only his methodology. In his words, the deep sand bed would take an year to get all it's denitrification capacity, but, if I do many mistakes, I'll have two ways, or to come back to Berlin's method or to throw it all and start from the beggining, trying once more to do just like he used to do. If you wanna know which end this project will get, come and see. May, 2020. July, 2020.
Hi! Haven't had an aquarium in 4 years (college) but I'm moving in June, definitely been planning something as I never quite accomplished my dream of a shallow ricordea garden. So I am planning a 5 gallon ADA shallow tank that's 17x12x7 because I am in love with the footprint especially for where I plan to put it but it kinda is giving me headaches thinking about the filtration. I really want to go no filter but at the same time its such a shallow tank there's not lots of room for a hefty sand bed and the vision I have does not include piles of live rock. That being said would a shallow sand bed of course (maybe crushed coral?) and fine sand with 5ish pounds of live rock be enough to sustain a bio-load of ricordeas, shrooms, polyps, zoas, cuc, and a pair of cute little sexy shrimp? Also considering a canister filter (also for the bonus of being able to use an inline heater with not heater in the tank) but don't trust myself to do the maintenance to keep it from turning to a nutrient dump but am open to suggestions! Plan on using an ATO to hopefully keep salinity as stable as possible and using a Vortex MP10 for flow but still need a good small heating option if anyone has suggestions!
MuddyPeaks posted a topic in General DiscussionHello everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster here 👋🏼 I'm an avid but new lover of plants and saltwater aquariums, and this space has been instrumental in being able to learn so much in a short amount of time. So far, I have a pretty successful 10g AIO with 2 clowns, some macro, and a few LPS going. But recently I found and bought a used AI Prime HD and decided I wanted to set up a 5g planted macro tank with my first light: a fluval sea nano. Now I want to keep this as simple as possible and buy as little extra equipment as I need to. This is where I would like your input. I got a 50w Aqueon heater and I have an Eheim Skim350 that I occasionally run on my 10g- could I use that for flow and minimal filtration? The system would mostly be running on biological filtration and water changes. As a thought also, is live sand enough? Im still working out the scape in my head but it's a question I had in my head 🤔 I don't plan on having animals in here except a clean up crew and maybe a yellow goby? (Is this appropriate or too small a volume for the fish?) Thank you for anyone reading this and those that might respond 🙂
