3 gallon picotope build
Hey guys so I have decieded to start work on what will be my second aquarium. Currently I have a 72 gallon reef aquarium and after making money from a summer job I have decieded to try my hand at a pico aquarium. I am hoping to keep this tank within a budget of 150$ dollars not including corals. As I have been doing research I have found that there are many different upgrades people add to their tanks and it has been a bit intimidating. Would I be able to get by with just.
JBJ 3 gallon picotope (41.99)*
Aquatop's 15-Watt Nano Aquarium Heater (14.99)
Caribsea Ocean Direct Live Sand Original 5 lb (9.49)
your going to need rock unless thats going to come out of your 72 gallon tank. if memory serves me right, the lighting on this tank will also need to be upgraded for corals. what will you use for water flow? what are your stocking plans?
that sounds good. if you were going with hard corals you would probably need more flow and lighting but this sounds like it would work nice. if you see more flow or lighting needed you can always add to what you have.
im assuming this will be a stand alone tank and not tied into your other system? will it have an ATO? ( auto top off ) for water evaporation? are you planning any inverts?
