It really depends on your display size. I have a 40 breeder QT for my 90 display.
Those seem alot better option and will allow me to just throw the sponges in the 90 and buy replacements to always have something. Beats the hob filters for sure! I'm gunna add those to my list too, and grab an air pump too!
125 display for now ecentevent going to a 240
I want a 240 but I am not sure if my floor will support it. I currently have a 150 deep. 240 wouldbe great. I could go 240 in my basement though.
That's where the 125 is haha! The basement.ba overbuilt the stand, bought a skimmer capable of a march larger tank and will build the sunp larger. All that would need to change I'd a stronger return pump, and the actual tank down the road
yeah man my skimmer is for a much heavier bioload than I have. Time for more fish and more coral woooo. lol.
Hoping this one does the job
yes I have something similar I have the Reef Octopus SUPER REEF OCTOPUS SRO-3000SSS 8 filtration specs:
Well Stocked Tank - Rated up to 180 gallons
Medium Stocked Tank - Rated up to 220 gallons
Light Stocked Tank - Rated up to 300 gallons
I have a very light stocked 150
Is I believe is the older version of the 5000sss like 450 gallon rating... Going g on a 125.... Ha!
yeah the one you have cost more and skims way more. I think you have will be great.
I used to have this one don't laugh at me as I did not know any better lol.
I picked that beast up used locally. Ha my first salt tank was a 30 hex with no skimmer....
If your treating with chemicals there's really no need to filter it too much cause mainly remove excess gunk but it's not gonna help with bacteria as the copper will kill it. Thus why I used just the 29g tank since I have to do water changes often to prevent ammonia and such.
I like the foot print of the 29 for that reason. I can make up about 30 gallons at a time of water currently so i could essentially do a 100 percent wc. But the biggest question is a 29 big enough for tangs and emperor angel.
If you buy them like babies like you wanted then yes it would be fine. You don't want to overload all at once anyways so you would add a few fish at a time.
The plan would be get my clowns and qy them, when those are done, get the next fish or maybe 2 if smaller, etc. I'd never do more than 2 unless a school .Of chromis or abthias or slmwtsome.
You know if you get the fish from critters they have them in copper tanks in the medicated section. Pay for it and let them hold it for a week for ya. Still have to watch regardless but at least it's been in copper already.
Not a bad option for sure! I know with more pricy fish like tusk and emperor I want to take all steps I can.
I never got a saltwater fish from them getting ich but have gotten a few with parasites that I had to do fresh water dip with.
I just remembered what the parasite was. It was fluke. But that was many years ago. It was on a kole tang.
I miss my kole eye! May put Another in the 125 when it's finally up. I'm going to keep my eyes open etc as the weeks go on.
