55g Transformation
 
i was making some changes on my 55g tank and i decided to "re-start" it, so i'll post pics daily so you see the changes on it. will be buying a protein skimmer soon. currently: live rock, live sand, lunar wrasse and a blue head wrasse.

i really like the look of your tank but if i may be critical for a moment... your rock looks a little tightly packed.. this will no doubt not interfere with the filtration properties but does it not slow down the flow of water through the tank creating dead spots and such? i only ask because i am still very new to salt water and this was a suggestion given to me that has helped my tank tremendously.... but other wise wow wow wow that looks incredible :)

LouzZ 05-24-2010 10:03 PM

thanks for your comment, but i beleive i got no dead spots, because my anemone was between 2 rocks and she was like swimming, and right now she's in another place, but i think thats because i have a nice power head :) tomorrow I'll be adding more Live Rock and possibly some polyps :D and maybe some fishes. I get them at the beach ;) all i have on my Tank is caught at the beach, i havent bought anything but the tank, filter, lightning. even the water is from the beach

that is so cool... we are going to the coast this week end but the most i could get for mine would be some sand. sea weeds and perhaps some rock if i find any... but the water is so cold up here that if i put anything in my tank i would most likely kill it....

LouzZ 05-25-2010 02:49 PM

you have to make a quarentine tank before putting the fishes in your tank.

still would not work here i am in the north eastern part of the US and the water is way colder than my tank (25-30 degrees cooler)... but i have recently been reeding on doing a cold water tank.. perhaps in a few years i will consider one just not now i need to really get my tropical one where i want it...
