Posted: Fri Oct 31, 2008 6:19 pm Post subject: New marine tank
I have posted 3 pictures of my tank. Its been about 10 days since the set up has been done. The size of the is 42" X A8" X 24". I intend to add the fishes once I have all the parameters right.
The sand bed was 1st prepared with the UG filter embedded in it. Bore well water was than added & the salt was than mixed. The gentleman who set up the tank added some bacteria to the sump below. The LR's were added after 4 days. He had cured them previously & brought them.
The set up includes a sump in the cabinet below, which has a filter created by him, a protein skimmer driven by a power head. Theres one power head to take back the filtered water back to the main tank & one power head attached to the UG filter. The lighting at present includes only 2 coral blue 20W lights. I have the following queries being a novice even after reading through the posts in the forums & other articles on various websites.
1. Was the use of bore well water right?
2.How do I know that the LR's are cured?
3. Is the lighting sufficient & if not what else do I require to add?( Height is 24" with hood being another 6-8" in height.
4. What other equipment do I require to incorporate before I add the fishes after my water chemistry is set right?
