This tank has been running for 6 months. It was a barebottom but I wanted it to be pretty so ahead I went and put sand. Not shure if I am going to regret my decision yet. Its my fisrt salt tank with substrate.
The tank is 50gal and has about 50pounds of live rock that Ive had for 7years from another tank. An eheim canister and a big hangon for filtration. Paramaters are perfect and stable for a long time.
I put 40pounds of ocean direct caribbean live sand with argonite and oolite.( It seemed fancy)
The tank took a few hours to clear up and I expect for it to be crystal in a few more hours.
Did I put enough,properly...rock placement???? etc.........
What do you guys think?
Sorry still a bit cloudy. Tried to dust off the rocks as best I could, should have taken them out..darn
Watchman goby is very happy with the sand, Coral beauty is freaked out and scared of the bottom, enginear goby is indeferent, cant find gudgeon goby. Hermits are loving it and the shrimps are curious.
I shure looks pretty I think.
