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.
I am looking to add a puffer to my tank. I know that none of them are guaranteed reef safe, but I would love to hear about any experiences you guys have had with them in a reef tank. I’m primary looking at a spotted puffer, a saddle puffer, a leopard puffer, or a blue spotted puffer (in that order). If any of you have kept any of these guys or any other puffers, could you let me know about your experiences, good or bad? I would appreciate any advice! Thanks so much!
