👋🏻 hello! This is my first saltwater tank, and with not much of an aquarium culture in my little mountain town, I’m hoping to share and learn with some other obsessed aquarists! I’ve got a nice 55 gal South American freshwater planted tank that’s been going great for about 2 years. I got this biocube 29 used with all of the stock equipment, but have upgraded to the following -eheim 100 watt heater -inkbird temp controller -duetto ATO -IM wavelink wave maker -stock skimmer -dry rock from Bulk Reef Supply -inTank media basket with filter floss and bio media plate pieces -stock lighting (for now) I’m just now cycling, entering week 2, so feeding and testing for ammonia/nitrites. I seeded with seachem stability. Running with lights off. I will run a small Refugium with chaeto in the back sump when I get some nitrates and phosphates going. Would love to hear advice or encouragement! Thanks for letting me join the forum 👍🏻 Ps follow me on Twitter @JulieReefer
Hey guys! I already sorta made a thread about this over in the stocking forum, but I figured a proper build thread would be necessary at some point. So here we are! The goal of this tank is to keep it simple and enjoy some fish. I feel like I tend to really get wrapped up in worrying about corals in my reefs, and I tend to get carried away with the "next thing" - a new frag, new lighting, better flow, etc... I don't want any of that in this tank! Right now, at least. I just want to really give these fish the attention that they deserve, and see how this tank ages and evolves. I actually took a Top Fin 37 gallon kit and added a MJ1200 powerhead. That's legit the only thing I added equipment-wise - I think I'll be switching out the cheap HOB filter with an Aquaclear 110 at some point, and I'd like to use a Fluval heater instead of the Top Fin, but hey, it's working right now. Equipment: 37 Gallon Extra-High Aquarium (30" long, 12" deep, 22" tall) Top Fin HOB Top Fin Heater Maxi-Jet 1200 Powerhead 30-ish lbs of rock (some dead, some live) Livestock: 3 Mollies (Basic, I know, but I enjoy them in a saltwater setting) 1 Blue Spotted Puffer 1 Yellow Clown Goby 3 Hermit Crabs That's kind of it for now. Not much has been going on in here - just slowly adding to it and making sure I don't see any ammonia spikes or anything. The chunk of live rock was well-cured, and there's some well-cycled media in the filter, so I think I'll be okay with water parameters. I'm watching them like a hawk, though! Future stocking plans are undecided - I had considered a pair of clowns, but after thinking about it, I don't know if I want them in here. What would you guys add? I had considered maybe a Cherub Angel, but I feel like a 30" tank might be on the small side for them. I think I'll also be adding some more crabs. Shrimp and snails are a no-no - the puffer would eat them. He doesn't seem to bother crabs, though.
