So, I bought a 120 acrylic tank:dance:, and I'm going to try to chronicle my adventures. It's a 4'/2'/2' tank, with single overflow, in the center of the tank, and a wet dry, converted to a sump. It has(I think?) 145lbs. of live rock, and about an inch/inch, and a half of 1 to 2 mm aragonite sand, a G skimmer,and a 4 bulb Compact light fixture, 2 hydor rotating deflectors, and a Visi-therm heater. It, also came with an old T8 light fixture housing retro fitted with 4 Stunner led strips. He gave me all kinds of stuff with it(algae scrapers, nets, powerheads, water pumps, additives, medications, pipe brushes, arm length aquarium gloves, a gravel vacuum, a scratch removal kit, a couple of books, and a bunch of other assorted aquarium supplies.) It came with a stand, but I can't use it, because it's so tall, it doesn't fit in my room in the basement. I plan to have a stand built or modify the stand to fit my room. I plan to add pictures, tomorrow. The live rock is sitting in a barrel, and trash can, with heaters, and powerheads to keep it alive. I vacuumed the sand before removing it. Man, it was filthy. Cyanobacteria covered everything, and there was algae covering parts of the glass. We emptied the tank, and took out the sand, and live rock, yesterday, moved the tank, and stand, today. The bulbs in the fixture were 2 years old. There were fish, coral, starfish, a pencil urchin, snails,a feather duster, and an anemone in the tank, so, I moved the coral, anemone, feather duster to my 75 reef, the pencil urchin to my 20H(couldn't get it off of the live rock), and traded in all the fish to my LFS. This was a early birthday present:woot:. My birthday is April 4th. The pump on the skimmer is broken. I'm trying to decide if I can add my little 10/12 gallon acrylic tank, as a refugium, attached to the sump. There is no space for chaeto. in the sump, now. This is awesome for me, since I was trying to convince my parents to allow me to convert my 75 cihlid tank to a reef, and he decided to let me do this, ha!:worthy: Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me!!! I'm trying to soak the skimmer pump in vinegar to release the frozen impeller, but I have little hope of it working. $90 or so for a new pump, sheesh. I plan on making it a mixed reef, with LPS, a few SPS, Softies, Zoas, mushrooms, and possibly the bubble tip anemone that came with it. I might trade in the anemone, don't know, yet. Sorry, for the long post, but I'm super excited! I was thinking an anthias, a dottyback of some kind, a flasher wrasse, a few gobies(citron, cleaner?, and maybe someone could suggest a few nice ones), a few others, but I don't remember most of the cool species. Suggestions? I plan to upgrade the lighting to T5HO, but at a later date. Suggestions? Any, and all welcome. I hope no one gets offended if I shoot them down, but I really do value your opinion. I plan on two phosban reactors, filled with GFO, and carbon. It, also, came with a top off float valve, which I plan to plumb to a bucket for top-off(I use well water, no RO/DI, but I plan to buy a DI unit, at some point, from petsolutions.com or use a di unit from bulkreefsupply.com, if you can use it, without an RO unit.) I never thought I'd get a tank of this size, and acrylic no less! Please, let me know what you think, thanks!
