    Sharbuckles Low Boy Lagoon

    Well it’s time for a new tank build. Originally purchased to be a frag tank I picked up one of ZooMed’s Low Boy 50g. After perusing the TOTM’s I came across two sources of inspiration which have now changed the entire direction of the low boy. Those two sources of inspiration are as follows: AND Two absolutely beautiful and unique tanks. The Aquascape will be very similar to both tank builds above. Almost combining the two with some rocks above the water line with some mangroves as well. The low boy offers a certain set of challenges as it is only 10” tall. But the 48x24 footprint allows for really cool dimensions as far as scaping goes. As I mentioned, I originally purchased the tank to set up as a frag system so to please my better half there will be a large frag area in the sump. Equipment: 50g ZooMed Low Boy 75g DIY Sump/Frag Tank Sicce Syncra 3.0 Return Pump 2 Tunze Nanostream 6040’s Eshopps Eclipse S Overflow 2x250w halide with 2 T5HO (ReefBrite strips to replace t5’s later) Eheim Jager Heater Havent chose a skimmer yet, thinking maybe just a Tunze 9004. Tunze ATO Ive got about 75lbs of dry dead rock which I will be using for my scape. Will add about 40lbs of aragonite as well. Stocking plans will be a mix of macros and corals, softies and LPS mostly. Havent put much much thought into fish plans. A friend is building a simple 2x4 stand which I may sand and paint white. Simple and effective. It will be 48” high for optimal viewing of the tank. Pics of the build to come this week!

    Frag Tank Stocking

    Ive decided to set up a 50 gallon low boy instead of setting up a larger display, and I will plumb the low boy into my Plumbed 60 cube. I have a very opinionated answer to my question. I already know im using two wave link circulation pumps, and a maxspect duo 9k return one pushing into my display and this one into this new frag system. Lighting will be maxpect ethereal's, Hydra 26's, Or some kind of Kessil (still haven't made up my mind). What fish would be comfortable in this system. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a tang, like Kole tank or Yellow tang. I do not need the tang police to chase me, as I haven't placed the fish in the system yet but have heard that 4 feet is ok for them. I have a yellow corris wrasse in my 60 cube, I would put him in my frag tank but there will be no lid, and Ive heard that sixlines don't jump often as yellow corrises, I also couldn't see the yellow corris jump (And I am stocking LIGHT so a sixtine is ok). So to dumb it down I will list out simple options and specs down below. Dimensions 48x24x10 (Length, Depth, and Hight). Frag Tank Well filtered (Plumbed into a 60 gallon system, for around 100 gallons of well filtered water volume.) Well circulated Stocking Options: #1 Sixtine wrasse, Tang (Kole or yellow is they are compatible) #2 Sixline wrasse, sailfin blenny (Maybe one other fish?) #3 Write In fish, I want useful fish (Pest control and algae control) All opinions are welcomed
