I can already visualize it! Sounds really neat. I wish you the best of luck!
Got the water in and all set up with sand. This thing is dead silent once you get it locked in right. So happy, can't wait until the cloudiness goes away.
Does anyone have any advice for changing water? I want to make this as easy as possible. My water will be mixed etc. in the basement and I want a way to get it upstairs easily. I looked into the Python No-Spill kit and this will be great for removing water from the tank, but adding the new saltwater back in will not be possible with it. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks
I'd like to hear some good water change methods too.
Anyone on the water changing advice??
Either way, I got the skimmer hooked up tonight. Vertex Omega 150. This thing is a beast and I can't wait to get it dialed in.
It's the cadlights 45 gaollon (between 40 and 45 gallons so I just round down) 35x17x17. Those primes will be enough for what you're planning. I'm using one of mine as a fuge light and I keep softies and algaes in there with no issues. I have SPS, LPS, and softies. SPS will stay alive under the primes but they won't color up to their full potential and they won't have as much polyp extension.
Great, thanks. For how small the Primes are they seem to put out a lot of light so far.
You can always buy a pump for the mixed water container and buy pvc fittings to make the python system work to pump up the fresh saltwater. That's what I did with a mag 24 I had laying around
They do! Best light for the price.
That's a good idea, thanks. I will work on getting that done.
Also, great to see someone so close to me in PA! I am in North Huntingdon. Haven't really met anyone locally in the hobby yet, I might be bugging you once I get this tank going if you don't mind!
Oh nice! Yea I'm pretty much right up the road! Sure hit me up sometime!
I got the rock in and did the aquascape. It's a little cloudy from moving it all around but what do you guys think?
This tank should turn out pretty sweet! I'm in the Harrisburg area in pa
Thanks, I'm excited to get going with it.
Great! I have relatives right by Hershey. Good fish stores in the area?
The only one is (that fish place) it's about 30 mins from Hershey
I've been wanting to get out there to see it.
It's not to bad. Pretty big selection. You just missed the drag swap though
I like it! kinda looks like mine. Great minds think alike, I guess =P
You know it.
Just looked at your tank, looks great! I wish I could be comfortable with a Copperband!
Yeah man, it's a gamble but that copperband ate frozen at the LFS. Unfortunately it stopped as soon as I put it in my tank. Fortunately it eats pellets now.
