Look at what I got yesterday!!!
Mamma let me buy a 28G Nano CF Quad :lol:
Well day 2 and it has cleared up wonderfully. I had to use regular tap water because RO is not available here and I cant afford the system yet. I will probably pay for that here soon I am sure. The SG is alittle high but I will add some fresh water this afternoon and hopefully that will bring it down. I have 7lbs of live Fiji rock, 25lbs of Live Sand and 7lbs of base rock. What do you think?? I tried doing ammonia, Nitrate test this morning and nothing is registering yet!
Looks like a nice setup. Are you running a protein skimmer or other form of filtration?
Thanks in advance!!!
I hope I caught you before you leave today. Take out the sponge and keep out the bioballs. You do not want any biologically active filter media in the tank. If you have already left, no big deal, but i'd rather get out in front of this.
The live rock and sand are all you need until you start stocking this tank. The skimmer should be added in the near future. I would leave the activated carbon bag, and replace it every 2 to 4 weeks. This is an area, however, that many people take a different opinion on.
Wouldn't 14 pounds total of rock be a little on the light side for a 28 gallon?
Well I am back and the Diatom bloom is in full effect...The tanks looks horrible but I know it is running its course. I also noticed a 5 legged white creature in one of the holes in the LR which is really cool. I have a few questions. I have alot of bubbles on the rock and some in the sand. Is this normal? Also I added 10 more pounds of LR today. Along with 4 hermits, 5 snails and a candy cane shrimp. I still can not find a skimmer for the tank. Any suggestions. As always thanks in advance.
