@ganael An acrylic tank does scratch easily, but it doesn't distort your viewing area as much as glass will. You also don't run the risk of your tank leaking. It is also easier to drill bulkheads in for sump plumbing.

@ganael starphire > acrylic imo. Just because of how easily acrylic scratches. It gets a spiderweb micro scratch look to the outside after a while.

@ganael your tank is so legit. how much did your entire set up cost, including sump, lights, tank, corals, fish, cabinet installation, etc.? :D i want to have something like this eventually maybe a little bit bigger than 130g but a price check on your setup will give me a general idea of how much i need to save :D :D

@webdesigndeluxe nope, tested and safe. Had to cut the power 2 times already. the sump has 2/3 the surface of the main tank and more 4 inches free on top. The main tank has a 1 inch flood/drain on top. Do the math ;) Thanks Ganzel

@Ryanb1551 It's not the distance that matters but the type of corals you put in your tank. Doing lik I did is a bad idea, if I 'd start over I'd go with only sps or only lps... Lighting, I have 3 x 400W going on 3 hours in morning and 4-5 in the afternoon. My T-5s open at 9h and close at 9h40 pm. I do the on an doff cycle to prevent excessive heat more than anything else. 3x400W is a bad idea in a colsed canopy :D
ganael
ganael - 11 years ago
@ncharrison I wouldn't put any fish in sump... goal of fish is to be beautiful or fun to watch, not pollute for nothing in the sump. A dotty back is trouble in long term I'd say. How big is your tank again?
Ryan Bissonnette
Ryan Bissonnette - 11 years ago
@ganael I'm scared my corals are going to sting each other... how can i prevent this from happening? How far apart do soft corals have to be placed in the aquarium? As well, a question about lighting.. how often do i keep it on for, what times throughout the day are best?

@ncharrison 28g is too small for a mandarin unless the reefshop you buy it from hand feeds it on front of you. Leopard wrasse will jump off the top unless you have a tight canopy/eggcrates. Skunk clown will be really territorial, it will bully other fishes. If you put skunk, tomato, or any other "non normal nemo clown", don't get anything else in that tank, except maybe a nice cleaner shrimp and an anemone or course. Ganzel

3 mh 400 produse a lot of heat . how do you cope with that in such a tight area ? have you thout about using t5 florecents lamps 6500k . yes the inital cost is high but the energy savings is buy far worth it . and you can turn them off and on as needed not having to whate 15 min for the mh400 to cool . sweet tank

@TheOneAndOnlyProdigy I didn't add much new stuff, lost a bunch of stuff this winter, calcium overload, and monti eating nudibranch are killing all my montiporas, one by one. I tried, yellow wrasse, carpenter wrasse, vermiculated leopard wrasse, green wrasse, emerald crabs, killing them by hand one by one, nothing works. I will put another video when all my montis will be dead and replaced by new accros I guess...
ganael
ganael - 11 years ago
@TheOneAndOnlyProdigy I'm using a reeflo 200 skimmer. It's handeling the bioload pretty well, but for some reason I always feel the need to go for bigger, better with anything related to saltwater :D So I guess if you can afford it go for it, because looking at the specs of your skimmer, it lookes like it's made for 100 gallons... If it really is, you should at least double that amount. There is a huge difference between theorical skimming gallons and skimming our tanks, so many factors etc.

I use seachem advantage calcium, reef builder, strontium, magnesium and kalkwasser, all in powder. I dose them manually every couple of days except for the kalk that has it's own night dripping system to keep ph stable.

I'd say yes, I'd start with the firefish and clowns. I would then add the 3 tangs at the same time, at a very young age. I would wait at least one year for the mandarin goby as it almost only eats pods. Ganzel

No problems at first. Now, 1 and a half year later, some fight for territory, they even chase the blue hippo and sailfin around the tank. One out of the 11 I have seems to be the boss of the tank, as strange as it may sound. Ganzel

The mandarins (I have 2) eat blood worms and brine shrimp, there is at least 250 pounds of live rock, The set up has been rolling for since february 2008. I hav had the Mandarins for over 6 months now and they are getting father and bigger by the day. YOU NEVER KNOW ;)

Kur Norock
Kur Norock - 12 years ago
You never know. Common wisdom is that you need a 100g or larger tank with 100 or more pounds of live rock, that has been set up for more than a year with stable parameters, BEFORE you think about adding a mandarin. Some people just get impatient and figure 6 months is long enough. And yes, it is a beautiful tank... a little too blue for my taste, but great otherwise.

I hope you used well established rock and sand for this aquarium, or got some tank raised mandarins that eat offered food, otherwise your mandarins won't last very long. Very cool setup otherwise!
