Ok so atm im only PLANING my fish selection with this being my first large reef tank (redsea max 250)
All fish suggestions and advice welcome. But the mrs has made it know she wants a fairy wrasse or two.
I thought about getting clowns to start. Then a blenny. Followed by wrasse. Then once tank is more stable MABY a yellow tang. Flame angle and a mandarin.
But these are just thoughts.
As my vision for the soft reboot of my tank starts to take shape in my head I am looking to pass on a few things. All on the following list are free if you are able to make it to Sydney's Inner West to pickup.
* 4 x orange morphs - one on a frag plus (6cm), plus two (8cm) and one (4cm) that I will be chiselling off a rock that I wish to keep
* 1 x blue morph - used to be about...
Hi all I haven't had a marine tank in about 3 years.
I was lucky enough to pick up a red sea max 250 for cheap so here I am.
I was looking for advice on setting up the skimmer hoses properly.
Was also looking to see if anyone is selling some dried rock or live rock cheap. Want about 15kg.
P.s I'm in south east Victoria (cranbourne)
I bought some livestock (corals, fish, lr) from a local reefer shutting down his tank. I found a tiny (5-6mm) pistol shrimp in one of the lr pieces. Would anyone in Sydney (location Innee West) like him for free?
Also, have a gorgeous clown fish I was going to keep, but have decided to part with (don't want to risk upsetting the existing 2 Percula that are happily hosting in...
Hey, quick question. I'm looking to buy my lighting from Germany (sewatec) and was wondering if i would face any additional charges when the product reached australia. The lights are worth over $1000. I don't need to pay their tax, so shipping looks like the only additional charge, i read somewhere about import charges and just wondering if it applies, if so is it cheap.
As you might know, I now own a pair of juveniles clown fish and would like to start their diet right from their younger days.
From a quick research, I understand that Astaxanthin and Beta-Carotene seems to boost the orange coloration.
It looks like TDO Chroma Boost (in USA) contains the optimal 400ppm of Astaxanthin however their shipping to Australia will cost $100 :banghead
Hi, this may be a stupid question, but do you need to pull the pipes apart , like return pipe and such, to clean them, i was wondering if they get a build up of stuff in them and slow down the turn over of the water
The girls and I watched this amazing documentary on Saturday. Awe inspiring and humbling and saddening at various stages.
Loved seeing all the varied naturally occuring scapes, the interaction of the multitude of creatures, the cycle of life, the way the fish and corals spawn to increase their survival chances, the sheer abundance and variety of underwater life shown. We found ourselves gasping...
It has been 17 months since I last updated this journal and quite a bit has happened, some good, some bad. Warning - its a bit of a long story.
Let me get THE BAD out of the way first. A few months after my last update things were going really well with the tank - params low/stable and all fish fat and happy. Decided to ramp back up to a mixed reef, so added a small number of softies and LPS....
A lot has been happening from all sides, and the aquarium too.
Final major issue to resolve is the lights, as it is pretty critical .
I have been researching, asking, and looking.
Thanks Sam, Dave and Fishy for your inputs. Much appreciated, really !
Halides - Sam is very much a Halides man, and can justify it with facts and results.
Fishy - is LED with those great Radion Gen 4 lights.
