90g Reef tank finally done
After a couple months of planning and setup my first SW tank is finally done. I could not of gotten it going without the help of all the knowledgeable members here. I picked up the 200# of liverock and 100# of sand a week ago and for now everything seems to be on track. Thanks. http://www.fishforum.com/userpix/1670_100_0642_1.jpg
looking good,i'm going to enjoy watching it grow.
i'll tag along. What are the Parameters right now?
Before I got the tank setup I ordered a Seachem test kit. However, the day after I setup the tank I went to open the kit and it was ruined. One of the vials broke open and ruined all the strips and the paper documentation. Fostersmith sent another one right away but I wont have it until Wednesday. This weekend I might bring a sample to my LFS. Ill let ya know if I do. I used all cured LR and about half Livesand so it shouldn't take too long.
nope it shouldn't. what kind of livestock do you plan to have?
I'm not too sure yet. I'll probably start off with a cleanup crew and a pair of false clowns. I do want to have some soft corals so my fish selection will have to be entirely reef safe. I would love a shrimp Goby/shrimp pair. Their relationship is amazing. Im open to any suggestions. Im not sure but I think I have some aptasia(pictured below). Should I inject them with some Kalk? A few feather dusters also showed up. http://www.fishforum.com/userpix/1670_100_0657_1.jpg
I will be watching your progress as well.
A good goby/shrimp relationship is a Watchman Goby with Pistol Shrimp.
Re: 90g Reef tank finally done
It ended up costing a lot more than I initially thought. You could definitely do it much cheaper with used items and hunting around on Craigs List for LR and such. I would say everything together: the tank, stand all equipment, LR, sand, cleanup crew, lights, ATO, ph monitor, RO/DI etc cost around $5k. But for just the tank, stand canopy about $850. A used setup like mine would probably sell for around $1500 I think.
i will deffinately be following this thread. unfortunately i cant give much advise as i am into freshwater. but i love these kind of threads where you can watch as the tank progresses. how many gal is that tank?
