Hi and #WelcometoR2R
Sounds like a solid plan so far. A few things to adjust. the pump will need to be beefed up.
After plumbing and head pressure the 2.0 will not have enough flow. I have been running a Maxspect jump dc 8 for a while now. I can recommend it. Price is great, powerful and...
Just stopped in to say #WelcometoR2R and congrats on grad.
I think I had tanks since around graduation and still today. Back then we had to make them from stone o_O .
Not sure if this is your 1st, so I attached one of the more popular of our articles for reference...
Just saying hi, and #WelcometoR2R
Got great advice all around. As @andrewey mentioned I don’t think you need more ammonia, and as mentioned I think your cycled. Also mentioned would be to hold off on coral.
My 2 suggestions. Research and put in a fish appropriate for you tank size and a...
#WelcometoR2R and congratulations on your new home!!! It looks like you have an in-wall display tank (DT) and a sump. Here are a few resources that you might find helpful:
Looks like a little 32G cube, love them. One suggestion, put an ATO (Auto Top Off) on the system, best thing I ever did. It surprises me how often if you do not have a lid, it tops off the water.
Tank looks great, coral looks healthy. You didn’t mention which light, it looks like you have it dialed in. You can paste a link to you build into your profile signature to get your build badge so everyone can follow along.
#WelcometoR2R!!! I hope that you are able to find a tank locally soon. Although it can be done, just a quick tip that many reefers tend to avoid 55g tanks because of how thin they are so by the time you add live rock there is very little room for fish to swim or open space for flow. Good luck...
First, welcome to Reef2Reef! #WelcometoR2R
To cycle your tank you do NOT need copepods, macro algae or bacteria (from a bottle).
Adding bacteria will speed up the development and shorten the cycle. So it's perfectly OK to do, just not absolutely necessary!
You can have algae in the...
Welcome to Reef2Reef Isaiah.
The common philosophy is that bigger is better. But like you, I decided to go smaller. I went from a 180g to a 120g to a 90g. I like the smaller tank MUCH better. But then it's way easier to maintain and also less expensive to fill with coral...
Sorry for the delay. Not sure if you are still having issues. I know a lot of people use Vibrant to rid the tanks of algae. I am not sure about compatibility of the 2 crabs.
I am not a big fan of the chemicals so maybe someone tonight will know about the crabs.
Welcome. Don’t know much about YouTube but R2R will steer you right and lived in Ft Lauderdale forever before moving to N.C. Still have fam and friends all over. We have members down there as well.
And we don’t judge, Rock looks good from what I see. Keep updating the build
