Poor Boys Saltwater Tank LOG
    #717212 - 02/24/14 10:30 AM (2 years, 9 months ago)

I picked up this tank at the beginning of February and got it for a great deal. The guy who had it before me neglected it for months and a result from that was crazy hair algae. He offered me a great deal so i went through with it.

The tank is a 30 gallon tall with basic pc lights. For filtration I have an overflow box that drains into a sump which is filled with bio balls and then a sponge. I placed a return pump into the other half of the sump which has the new filtered water and then pumps that back into the tank.

I also have a hang on back (HOB) filter with a media bag that has a basic light that shines over the filter. by doing this i am able to grow copepods which feed my 2 mandarins.

In the tank itself i have...

Live Sand Bed
35lbs of Live Rock
1 Clown Fish
2 Mandarins
1 White Diamond Goby
1 Lawnmower Blenny
2 Hermit Crabs
4 Snails with a handful of baby snails
3 Kenya Trees
20+ Purple Mushrooms
1 Curly-Que Anemone

In the near future I might add a Sea Hare, but other than that, I'm going to let the tank establish. My main goal is to keep this tank for at least a year and then upgrade to a larger tank.

The pics start from the first day i had it set up and I will continue to add new ones as i go along.















Filtration:







Fish and Coral:





(Ill edit this and add more pics here in a bit.)

newest addition...

Sea Hare





its a fat slug that does nothing but eat. im actually just renting him. i have some hair algae that seems to take over the tank and its too much for my blenny. thing is, once the algae is gone i have to give him back because he will starve in days. he literally has to eat non stop.

newest addition. 2 peppermint shrimp. i picked them up for a couple reasons...

first and foremost, they are cool looking and are a great addition to any hobbyist tank.

second reason is due to an aiptasia... these fuckers suck! they are aggressive and will attack all fish any chance they get. peppermint fish are known for eating them so hopefully they do the trick.
