Background:Back when this pandemic first got started I bought a comet fantail goldfish and rapidly discovered the complexities of fish keeping. I gain knowledge and got to the point of buying a 55 gallon for my goldfish, as well as some buddies. It has been about half a year and I am not taking the next step into reefing and keeping a saltwater tank. Back on December 28th, I decided to repurpose my 20g long as well as its filter, heater, and some dead coral from Haiti to start a reef aquarium. Since then I have been doing research upon research to get ready for fish and snails, and now I am looking forward to coral and maybe even anemones. Now that I have fish in after a month cycle I would like to show off my work and write down my specs. This is in no way completed and I have a job interview in 2 days which will hopefully allow for upgrades and changes around the tank.
2 Clown fish
2 Turbo Snails
2 Other Snails
(forgot species, named after some type of drink)
1 Texas Holey
Assorted shells and dried up coral
Aquaneat 480gph Wavemaker
Orluchy 100w Heater
Uniclife Airpump and Bubbler
Aquaclear A600A1 Filter
NICREW ClassicLED 12"
Omega Sea Premium Reef Salt
Mix of... Petco Sand, Alive Sand from my local fish store, as well as some black pebbles from my grandparents.
Moving into the future there are many things I am planning to get, primarily new light.
I also really want to get some more rocks into the tank for better scaping.
As I said I want to get into coral and anemone so after this tank goes for a bit and I believe it is a good time I will buy my first coral!
