I've run two fluval edges as marine tanks...it was a love hate relationship that eventually broke me due to having to take water out each time you needed to go in and the lack of access for cleaning.
It was new to the market when I decided to try my hand at marine and it was successful until a snail got into the pump impellor and stopped it running. It happened while I was away overnight and I lost all my stock!
I ran an led unit in the hood to improve the stock lighting
some pom pom crabs
and one giagantic sexy shrimp
I then tried to keep mini maxi nems - successfully too - with sexy shrimp and anemone shrimp.
Now for the D-D 24 gal upgrade tank. Mid June this year.
I always said when I first got the nano that I'd not be going larger than that. A trip to an Aquarium down at Hastings made me realise how good my corals could look in a bigger tank so I decided to go large.
Enter the Osaka 155
I wanted to put the new tank in the same place as the od one so with the help of Roger (whipitup) I got a plan of action sorted out and off I went into the longest day of my life
I emptied the D-D and stored all the fish, corals and livestock in buckets and boxes and spare tanks with pumps and heaters and lights everywhere. It wasn't a pretty sight in my house and neither was I...hot and sweaty, how attractive.
and finally, from this
2 tank bred percs, 2 coral gobies, 2 watchman gobies, 1 high fin banded goby and pistol shrimp, 1 possum wrasse, 5 blue eyed cardinalfish.
1 big black and white brittle starfish (Big leggy) hitch hiker, a sand conch, a million small brittles, dwarf hermits, a concoction of snails, mythrax crab. Various zoas, mushies, kenya tree, xenia - elongata and red sea pulse, 2 plate corals, acans, torch/frogspawn, duncans, montipora - digi and plating, acropora, 2 types of gsp, 2 cabbages, rics and I think that's about it for now
