Oh im sorry i forgot to put the specs up.
Its a 20 gallon(h) tank with a 10 gallon sump. Heres the equipment. A aqua medic 650 gallon return pump, a crp overflow, a magnum 25,a maxi jet powerhead,a current usa duel sattalite fixture(130 watts) a jaguar 250 watt heater, and a egg-crate cover.
I have argonite sand for my bottom.
Im not sure exactly whats going in it yet(i know thats bad) But i know ill have some coral and some gobys prolly. I am looking to put a african velvet fish in it, just as soon as i can track one down.
Check out he new bubble trap i built today. I copied steves idea. I used 1/4 inch plexi-glass and some silicon. Took me a few hours. Dont compare it to steves but think of it as ''it get the job done''
I have some ideas on how i can fix the skimmer. I will buy one of those venturi injectors and put it on the intake of the pump than put the output of the pump in the skimmer. I would redrill the broken intaka and just stick a peice of pvc in there and glue it nice like.
Im not sure if im gunna add a backround. I defenetly wouldent paint it, i would use a blue backround. I think when i add live rock and sand it should look fine, besides its not relly for other peoples veiwing pleasure, thats y its in my room.
Good question donut, Yes, most people do put the heater in the sump,but mine won't fit. Now the filter, If i was only using that filter for cleaning the water than i would place it in the sump, but the filter is pushing 250 gph so i am using to create currents in my tank.
Brandon there are no updates yet its gunna be a while till i will have anything to take a pic of, i am doing something sorta different from what i was gunna do before, but i will post a pic when i have something to photograph. I will explain this later.
usmc i've gotten rid of the sump and im currently using a powerfilter with lr rubble and a powerhead for filtration. Haha thats alot less than i had planed but i was in over my head.
But anyway i got some more rock! I am currently done with the rock(ill buy more when i get some money) And im gunna wait a few weeks than start adding coral and a fish. rite now i have a hundred dollars of rock in the tank. i think its about 18 pounds of lr.
Any suggjestions on how i should stack my rock would be very appretiated cause im finding it difficult to get the look i want. The brown peice has been in there the longest thats y its brown,cause its covored in brown algea. After i get a cleanup crew in there will they clean that rock so it will look like the others?
