Lol. I pictured older. Like the tank was for her to take care of. The best part about the little ones is they love anything. That’s great to make her a tank to have her involved. My kids love watching and feeding the tanks.She can't articulate whether she's happy with it or not, she's 2 :-D I'm sure she'd rather Minnie Mouse be in her tank, lol.
My kids hate my tank and constantly tell me things like "shut up we don't care about your fish tank". Oh how great it is to have teenagers.My kids love watching and feeding the tanks.
Yeah, softies and LPS... don't have enough light or flow really for SPS.Second note. I was looking at the side view. The bottom rocks do look a bit shaded from the rocks above so corals at the bottom probably won’t get much light. I assume this will have corals in it? If it’s just foe fish that’s another conversation. And please take this as just constructive criticism. It’s hard sometimes to criticize with text to make sure the tone is correct.
Yeh, I personally think there's too much in there, and I like one of the other suggestions of taking hammer to the larger/rounded rocks, so I may remove some, and destroy some to make smaller pieces that can be placed better.I also think the rock is a) too high and b) maybe too bulky and c) maybe too much. I put too much rock in my tank or stacked it "wrong" IMO (first tank noob). What I would do next time... I like the caves for fish, but also the sand for empty space and maybe corals, statues, and other fun stuff (think coco worm, electric clam, zoa rock. large hammer etc). So, I would do less rock overall, create some caves with thoughts to ledges, and leave 50% of the sand with no rock.
It is. It's a great tank, and the light was the reason I went with it instead of the Evo 13.5G. So far it's not disappointing anywhere other than space. This is the smallest tank I've ever set up. Rock in a 200G and rock in a 32.5G are different monsters apparently :-D I'm pretty sure it's the size of the rock that's killing it, so I may hammer and chisel some. I removed 3 of the larger Carib Sea Life Rock pieces and rearranged some, just waiting on the dust cloud to settle to see how it looks. If it's still looking too "piled on" then I'm gonna break out the hammer and chisel and see what I can do...If that’s the fluval flex 32 I have the same tank. I’ve put a light fixture above it and made a mesh lid but I did my best to try to get the par on the light It came with. Hard since need the down. But I was getting in the 250 range about 6 inches below the water line. And I could have added some power as well. You probably can get away with sps at the top later on if you want. Of course wait til you have mature with the stability needed. But though I’d share my readings on that light it came worh if it’s the same tank. It’s a decent light.
Sorry can’t be of any help. I haven’t used the light for a while and I don’t remember details enough how it works. Somebody probably can help if you post a new thread on the topic. Plenty of people here use that tank with those lights.@fachatga I am trying to create a pro light scenario on the Marine 3.0 light with this tank, but whenever I click save, it just brings me back to the screen that shows Preset - Color Pop or something like that, and won't save my scenario. Also, I cannot figure out how to change the Pro to any other presets, if I save as I can see there are 2 others, but I can't figure out how to change it... Since you have the same tank/light, I was wondering if you had any insight...
I think this is too much rock and the scape allows you not many place for corals.Hey all, just finished setting up my daughter's tank last night and was wondering if anyone had any feedback regarding the aquascaping. I almost feel like there is too much rock, so there are 3 pieces I'm considering removing, but thought I'd get feedback first...
Well, it's for her, so it's gotta be colorful.As most said, a bit too much rock piled up. Need more room for flow and growth. Oh, I remember my babies at 2. Well, not really too much. I was in a zone by then with 3 little ones (set of twins at 2 and 5 year old). So much fun though.
What besides softies and lps are you hoping for? Also which types of corals as those two groups are huge in variety and need different things. I love the little tanks almost as much as my 210g. Sometimes more. So much easier to clean and do water changes. Have fun!
