somewhere Along the line I caught the sps bug!
So here are some pics of my existing display reef. It is 140 gallons. The tank is controlled by a Neptune apex. I have AI Hydra 52 LED lighting, moonlight is assisted by these really neat and cheap large computer fans. Einstein game because the hydros were overheating and shutting off frequently. This was a great solution. I have two Ecotech MP 40s for circulation, Reef Octopus skimmer and Vortech S-1 DC variable speed return pump. The latter was not worth the money I had to spend to get it. It does the job for now but has issues.
I’ve also included some snaps of a little experiment In doing with breeding. I’m fascinated by breeding different species of marine organisms. I’ve just started collecting specimens and building up my DIY hatchery, lol. I read some books and was sucked in. It’s the next level In the hobby for me. It feels like a natural progression that only my fellow referees will appreciate. So that’s why I’m sharing.
I had my first clutch of peppermint shrimp and have been very encouraged. I’ve gotten the fry to day 21 for the first clutch. This second one I have 3 left out of 16 and doing well at day 12 now.
Everybody please enjoy the pics, and PLEASE anyone with experience with this offer suggestions.
Oh yeah I forgot. I also breed first foods like copepods (T .Californicus) and rotifers and sell or trade for equipment I need and also trade for supplies at LFS. This is one o my tanks for copepods.
Very clean. I like the scape!
Love the scape and coral placement is awesome!
This is an awesome thread! I'm getting lots of ideas, thanks to all who posted!
