  1. So, after finishing brushing off my macros and doing a half gallon water change (I was bored...) I've decided that I need an official tank thread instead of just sorta asking a bunch of questions in different threads around the site. Hopefully this'll do the trick! Basically, this is a standard 10 gallon tank that's currently housing my macroalgae and my Valentini Puffer. I'm using this tank as a QT tank (dead rock, cycled filter media) as well as a holding tank for my macros as I move tanks around to make room for upgrades. This entire system will move up to a standard 29 as soon as the QT period is over (and as soon as I finish repairing the 29), and the plan is to slowly gather equipment in the meantime. I'm working in an Italian restaurant until classes start, and hopefully I'll be getting something better. For now, I'll basically be funding my aquarium hobby (addiction?) with a portion of my paycheck and tips, so progress might be a bit slow. Progress is progress, though, right? Equipment (as of 6/15/2019): Standard 10 Gallon Glass Aquarium AquaClear 50 HOB Filter Preset Tetra 50W Heater 2 Daylight PAR 20's in a janky fixture Livestock (as of 6/15/2019): Fish: Valentini Puffer Inverts: Blue-legged Hermit Crab (for hunting purposes) Macros: Codium sp. Dragon's Breath Caulerpa Racemosa Pel. Caulerpa Mexicana (?) Mermaid's Fan (?) The next thing I'm upgrading is probably going to be the heater (to a 150W Aqueon adjustable heater), as the current heater keeps the tank around 75. Not the end of the world, but I'd prefer the tank to run between 78-80. After that, I'm looking at lighting, as the PAR 20's are a bit weak. I'm getting growth and color, just not as much as I'd like (and this light won't cut it for some of the macros I'll be keeping in the future). So, I'm looking at using two of these PAR 38's over the 10 gallon (https://www.amazon.com/Philips-LED-Non-Dimmable-PAR38-25-Degree/dp/B01CAL1FEQ/), and then maybe upgrading to 4 of them over the 29. I'm going for medium-high light, so three may suffice; not sure yet! Those upgrades will be coming in the next few days/weeks! FTS (6/15/2019): Sorry for the crooked pic - the way that tank is currently situated makes it next to impossible to get good pics.
