 Hi  All,
 
 Its  been  a  long  since  I  had  a  desire  to  keep  a  marine  tank,  now  slowly  thinking  up  the  plan  to  have  it  finalized..
 
 
 would  appericiate  your  help  in  my  marine  tank  preparation,  now  experts  jump  in  and  answer  the  queries  please  Smile  
 
 
 Tank  size  :  5X  1.5  X  2  feet
 
 
 
 1.  Will  be  keeping  only  percula  clown  fish  may  be  a  small  group  of  them(like  most  of  the  hobbyist,  Nemo  Inspired  me  a  lot  fell  in  love  with  them  but  never  had  chance  to  get  one  )  and  then  once  the  aquarium  is  set  may  be  few  tangs  and  my  dream  fish  Mandarin.  (this  ll  be  later  part  may  be  after  6-8  months  one  the  tank  has  been  started)
 
 2.  And  do  I  require  protein  skimmer  or  water  change  will  require?
 
 3.  What  are  the  ideal  water  parameters...??
 
 4.  is  it  necessary  to  keep  live  rocks  ?  what  are  the  positives  and  negatives  of  LR  ??
 
 5.  what  should  be  the  ideal  lighting  for  the  fish  only  tank  ?
 
 6.  what  is  the  best  substrate  to  go  for  ?  LFS  who  deals  in  the  best  of  marines  and  have  successful  marine  running  since  quite  long  suggested  me  to  go  for  chinese  made  live  sand.  
 
 7.  whether  to  go  for  sump  or  external  filters  ??  i  have  3  canister  filters  that  can  be  attached  to  this  tank.  
 
 8.  Can  i  keep  Anemon  if  i  go  for  Artificial  rocks  ??  
 
 i  want  this  tank  to  be  more  on  low  maintenance  so  planning  for  artificial  rock,  but  if  you  guys  advise  to  keep  live  rock  and  can  share  the  full  details  of  maintenance  of  live  rocks,  i  am  ready  to  keep  them.  As  such  LR  is  working  out  to  be  much  cheaper  than  artificial  rock,  but  i  have  to  cut  down  on  maintenance.  
 
 this  project  might  take  anywhere  from  1-2  months.
 
 Thanks  everyone  for  the  replies,  i  appreciate  it.   Thumb Up

 A  small  update:
 
 this  was  suppose  to  be  made  yesterday  but  made  it  today.  
 
 made  the  rock,  here  are  the  few  pics  that  i  clicked.  
 
 Birla  Portland  cenemt
 
 
 Rock  salt
 
 
 Coral  sand
 
 
 bucket  of  sand  for  the  mould
 
 
 the  mixture  put  into  the  mould
 
 
 the  recipe:  
 4  cups  of  washed  and  damp  coral  sand
 4  cups  of  white  portland  cement
 2  cups  of  rock  salt
 dash  of  water  to  mix
 
 mix  everything  and  place  in  the  mould.  add  some  more  salt  to  get  more  pores,  thats  what  i  read  on  few  of  the  sites.  
 
 once  the  cement  is  cured  by  tomorrow  evening  and  then  will  remove  and  update  the  final  product
 
 now  one  question:  
 when  i  remove  from  the  mould  and  if  the  sand  is  attached  to  the  cement  how  to  remove  the  sand  ??  
 
 waiting  for  the  inputs  Smile

 your  rock  looks  perfect  to  me,  i  think  you  should  have  used  rock  salt  of  size  around  5mm  or  even  finer....  i  think  the  rock  may  break  into  pieces  once  you  put  it  in  water...

 let  the  sand  be  there,  you  may  cover  it  with  thin  paste  of  cement  so  that  entire  rock  look  white

 i  think  the  rock  will  not  break  soo  easily,  the  main  concern  is  the  rock  to  dissolve.....  what  do  you  think  ???

 ok  friends  heres  an  update....
 
 took  the  rock  in  hand,  and  trust  me  its  HEAVY  
 
 
 
 
 
 the  final  product  is  pretty  nice,  i  found  it  pretty  fragile  though  
 according  to  my  driver(who  is  best  family  member,  he  only  supports  me  in  my  hobby   :LOL   :LOL  )  this  portland  white  cement  will  dissolve  in  the  water  with  time  and  no  longer  safe  for  the  fishes.....what  you  guys  think.....
 
 
 i  put  it  in  a  bucket  of  water  and  will  wait  for  few  days  now...
