After a 10 year lay off I’m back at it again. This time with two tanks.
Current set up is a 65g and 40B as well as a 15g quarantine tank. I’m running everything BB at the moment, not quite happy with the look yet.
The 65 runs a filter sock, older esshops skimmer, hydra 26 LEDs, jebo wave maker (gyre), tunze top off. I have a refuge compartment empty at this time, but have some dragons breath and money plant sitting in QT. This tank is running smoothly and I have just dropped in the first round of coral that cleared 2 weeks of observation in QT.
stock list is 2 bangi cardinals, 3 clowns, 2 chromis, a pink Damsel and Marine Betta. I have no plans to adjust stocking, except to evict the current crab population in favor of snails for algae control.
No real issues at all. I expect I may need to start dosing soon. I’ve also starting feeding multiple times a day to get my nutrients up, and have seen a small algae bloom as a result.
The 40B is a work in progress. Skimmer is oversized. having tons of trouble with nutrients. Since it is fish only at the moment, it hasn’t been receiving the love it should. I have some solid plans to replace this tank, but continuing to do research on the next build.
Stocking is a yellow tang, 2 clowns, and 1 pink damsel. I’ve added a handful of chato algae about 2 weeks ago, which is now growing rapidly with a dark green color.
Finally the QT. Its a 15g bowfront running a small wavemaker and a kessil H80.
currently housing 2 prism favias which I’ve been removing microscopic amounts of bubble algae from
2 questions: What product does everyone use to dose Alk? Tips on eliminating bubble algae?
