My 5g hexagon tank
Wow looks like people are already rocking on their threads. My submission is going to be a 5g marineland hex tank w/ a 15 g sump. I probably wouldnt have added the sump but I need a frag tank really bad right now.
The tank right now has just had 2 bulkheads drilled, still some sanding to do. I also havnt ordered the LED's yet that I will be modifying into the existing hood. I havnt decided exactly which direction I am going w/ this tank yet either. Possibly a couple colonies of suncoral to start things off and a mini maxi? I have 2 sexy shrimp living in a 1g for right now till I set up the tank fully. Many options still open,lol.
I do know for sure that the return pump will be fitted with a hydor flo. When you subtract the resistance from it, it should have around 200gph turnover. Alot of the movement will be necesary for the amount of rock and caves I plan on putting in it. Filler up! I should have more info and progress this wknd hopefully. The sump will be lit with 3 x 24w t5's and the nano will probably have 4 to 6 3w leds but 2 will likely be for algae growth behind the rock structure.
