Please be blunt! It’s the easiest way to get the info across!Welcome.... few things, if I can be blunt:
1) if it is > 40g tank or so, which it absolutely looks like...... you will 100% want to invest in a RODI unit of your own. Look up “4-stage RODI buddy” on amazon, etc. less than $100
2) take a picture of the lights, someone will let you know , but whatever this guy had running obviously grows coral.
3). forget sharks/rays. Bad idea with the rockwork you have and tank is too small by a LOT.
All is not lost!!!!! Your tank, once you put a nice tight lid on it, will be fine to house most any eel for their entire life...... but rays/sharks are a no-go.
Again.... welcome! Regular water-changes should keep the coral you have doing fine, but with that said, you need to figure out how much water is in it to know how much to change, and also you will want that RODI unit and maybe invest in a brute can to store it.
Im definitely going to get one, I’ve already had to add about 15 gallons into it just this week.The tap water at my house is not really potable (I drink out of a Brita)... will that be an issue for the unit?
I’ll attach a photos of the lights!
Good to know eels are possible! Maybe if this tank goes smoothly for a year or so I’ll upgrade to something that could handle a ray or shark. This tank has a lid but it isn’t air right by any means - is that an issue? It basically rests on top but it’s sturdy so I can’t see a fish pushing it or making the 5 extra inches or air to clear it.
