Well after moving and shutting down my old tanks i decided i cant live without a tank so i got myself a 29g biocube to make things easier than the whole system and i decided to do a predator tank. Here is a picture with some of that Tropicorium premium dry rock they have, that stuff is fantastic!! since it is dry and bleached with no dead matter on it my tank cycled in about 3 days using fresh live sand and water and rock rubble in the back chamber. (for size reference the rock on the right is 10x10x10 approx)
after reading about a few fish to put in the predator tank i decided i wanted to angler! I picked up this guy at reef solutions through a trade, he is about 1.5" if that:
I also got this orange toadfish about 4.5" from them through the trade as well, i am still afraid he will eat the angler but i am keeping him fed so hopefully it doesnt happen:
i decided i really wanted to do some coral so i will probably get a few z's and p's but i really want to do a planted tank. i have the crappy biocube skimmer and we all know those things work like garbage so i decided to get some macros and saltwater plants for the tank to help overcome the horrible feeding habbits of these fish. The macros/plants will help eat the bad nitrates and phosphates left behind so hopefully i can maintain good water quality. I put in an order for 5 different varieties yesterday and i am also picking up 2 other reef plants today from a buddy. i will post new pictures of the fish in the tank later today and also with some of the plants in when i get them.
