My First Aquarium Pics and Details! Hi Everyone!!!
Found this site from google search!
I just pulled the trigger and purchased an Aquaripure Small for my 40 gallon tank. I spoke to John today and placed my order over the phone with ease. John was very professional and I am happy with my order.
I house a reef system with 12 fish, 1 seahorse, corals, Live rock . (I know Im crazy with 40 gallons and all that fish)
Anyway; as we are all busy in life; I have no time to do water changes as often as I would like to.
1. Im running a canister system (EHEIM 2232) with which contains:(from bottom tray to top)
a. Eheim Coarse Filter
b. Poly-Filter (cut to size)
c. SeaChem Purigen Pad
d. Seachem Renew
e. SeaChem PhosGuard
All in a 40 gallon tank with over 60 pounds of live rock.
(Im a canister guy; dont try to change me to a sump)
I do monthly changes of the chemical filtration from the canister system. I change salt water weekly (5 gallons) from LFS which sells it from their system pre salted.
High Range PH: 8.0
My PH always drops to 7.8 daily.
I use the following chemical products:
1. Aquavitro: Fuel (evey three days; a TSP)
2. Aquavitro: Calcification - Weekly (TSP)
3. Aquavitro: Vibrance - Monthly (10 drops)
4. Brightwell Aquatics - Magnesium (TSP bi-weekly)
5. Aquavitro Balance - Every other day (TSP)

Ocean Nutrition Spirulina Flake (pinch)
Frozen Brine: (BIO-Pure) - 1 cube (pre melt half before placing in tank)
Frozen Mysis Shrip (Hikari)- 1 cube (pre melt half before placing in tank)
Small Puffer (does not bother any corals/fish )
(Ich breakouts clear-up with Ecological Lab Microbe-Lift Reef Herbtana (1 TSP for 10 days, IT WORKS)
Blue Spruce Caulastrea (7 heads)
4 Turbo Snails
4 - hermit crabs

Gorgeous. Welcome to the forum.
And you've got to post a pic. of that seahorse. Please :)
Per a member's request.
Wow. That's pretty cool. I've heard that they're really hard to take care of. True?
I'm not a salty but have a 45 gallon hex that's empty atm. I'm toying with the idea of salt. Haven't got the nerve or the bank account to set it up yet tho.
