Here is what I am getting for a used tank
I'm moving and need to sell my beautiful saltwater aquarium setup. This is the complete setup, I can't part it out as there's still life in there - a mated pair of Ocellaris Clowns, 1 blue damsel, a nice Kenya Tree Coral, and assorted blue leg hermits, etc! It's a 46 gallon glass bow front aquarium with stand. I've put many upgrades into it lately to make it quiet and energy efficient:
36-40" LED fixture (42 x 1 watt LEDs in actinic blue and 10000K) LED Reef Bright
Tunze Silence 1073.020 Circulation Pump (less than 6 months old, adjustable up to 600+ gph) TUNZE GmbH High-Tech Aquarium Technology: Catalog
Eshopps PF-300 Overflow (single 1" drain, up to 300 gph) Reef Aquarium Filtration: Eshopps Overflow Boxes
300 Watt Heater
Hydor Koralia power head
10 Gallon refugium / sump in the stand
50+ lbs of aragonite live sand
about 50 lbs of live rock, and some other miscellaneous rock that has been out of the system for 6 months
Not in there at the moment, but you can have them if you want them:
48" compact fluorescent fixture, needs new bulbs but otherwise ok and gives out plenty of light if you want to grow more corals in this tank than the LEDs will support
Seaclone protein skimmer
Assorted other parts, pieces, and supplies
I've currently got it running with a deep sand bed and an algae scrubber in the sump - very ecosystem centric, low electricity consumption, and low maintenance. Send me an email if you have any questions!
Here are a few of the questions that I have:
I am going to be taking this tank down on sunday and bringing it home. I plan on putting the live rock in buckets, leaving the just enough water in the tank to keep the sand wet, and putting the fish a tote with a lid and around 5 gallons of water. I am hoping to take another 15 gallons of water with me to add back to the tank. Any suggestions on transporting all of this stuff?
There is quite a film on all of the rocks(algae build up) that is not very pleasing to look at. Will I be able to scrub this off, and if so how is the best way to go about this?
I am also thinking that there is not enough of a cleanup crew right now. What should I add? There is nothing living in the refugium that is filled with live sand, a bit of live rocks, and then the algae scrubber setup.
I would also like to add a regal blue tang to go along with the 2 clowns and 1 yellow tale damsel. Will this work ok, and what would be some other fish I could add?
