 Hi  Everyone,
 
 I  have  bought  my  marine  tank  to  the  first  floor  and  am  using  sunlight  
 
 on  one  side  of  the  tank  placed  at  the  window.
 
 Tank  is  4  ft  *  1.4ft  *  1.5ft
 
 Filtration  :  Canister  Filter  (  Azoo  with  Big  pieces  of  Coral  sand  on  2  
 
 trays  and  one  tray  has  Azoo  Sponge  filter).
 
 Lighting  :  1.  Sunlight  from  morning  till  evening  with  direct  sunlight  
 
 between  3:30  pm  and  6  pm  rest  of  the  time  it  is  indirect  sunlight.
 A  lot  has  been  said  everywhere  on  NOT  using  sunlight  but  little  bit  is  
 
 good  enough  and  I  dont  anything  can  give  the  kind  of  spectrum  sunlight  
 
 gives  (  that  is  obvious).  In  sometime  ofcourse  I  would  go  with  PFO  
 
 lighting  but  now  budget  restrictions  are  there.
 
 2.  @  2  ft  Philips  12000K  TL  ,  1  Resun  Ocean  Blue.
 
 
 On  the  Side  of  lighting  i  see  very  good  Coralline  (  purple)  growth  and  
 
 I  add  Azoo  Reef  Calcium  and  Strontium.  I  will  be  adding  trace  elements  
 
 also  in  sometime.  Ofcourse  little  bit  of  Magnesium  and  Molybednum  and  
 
 Iodine.
 
 
 
 I  have  assorted  damsels  and  one  bristle  tooth  tang  who  is  so  well  
 
 mannered  that  it  goes  only  to  one  side  corner  of  the  tank  and  poops  
 
 there  !
 
 I  need  Macro  algae  as  I  need  to  control  the  Nitrates  though  right  now  
 
 they  are  under  control.  I  clean  the  canister  filter  every  week  once.
 
 Please  do  see  the  pics  and  need  your  comments.

 Hi
 
 Nice  setup  you  have  got  there..  IMO  the  rocks  seem  to  be  stacked  up  too  close  and  tight..  You  could  maybe  create  a  more  natural  looking  aquascape  with  more  caves  tunnels  etc!
 
 And  about  the  sunlight,my  tank  used  to  recieve  a  lot  of  sunlight  too.  Was  able  to  keep  coralline  alive  and  kickin  just  on  sunlight  from  the  window  even  when  my  MH  lamp  failed.  So  as  long  as  you  dont  have  heat  issues,you  go  right  ahead  my  friend!
 
 Do  you  use  a  skimmer?  If  you  dont  ,  adding  one  will  help  with  the  nitrates.
 
 Your  tang  may  chomp  off  all  the  macroalgae  if  you  try  to  keep  it  in  the  display  tank  itself.  Maybe  you  can  grow  the  macroalgae  in  a  small  container  within  the  tank  (more  like  an  in  tank  refugium).  This  would  serve  a  dual  purpose  that  you  can  control  excess  nitrates  while  not  having  to  add  a  sump  or  extra  lighting.   
 
 You  can  also  feed  any  excess  algae  that  you  remove  to  your  tang!  Be  careful  of  what  species  of  macroalgae  you  get  though!  Some  can  grow  too  fast  and  crash  your  tank  while  others  could  die  off  and  pollute  your  water.IMO  Caulerpa  is  too  fast  growing  and  unless  you  keep  removing  it  it  may  grow  over  everything  in  your  tank.  Chaetomorpha,on  the  other  hand  is  not  as  troublesome  as  Caulerpa  and  can  help  with  nutrient  control.
 
 HTH
 
 regards
 
 Arvind

 Why  not  water  changes?  Would  be  cost  effective.

 Me  too!  If  you  come  across  something,  call  me.  Also  update  me  regarding  the  river  sand  thing  remember.

 Hello  Arvind,
 
 Thank  you  for  the  reply.
 
 I  am  planning  to  add  a  small  in  tank  REfugium  with  macro  algae  and  I  dont  want  to  put  Caulerpa  as  they  release  toxins  sometimes  and  did  have  that  expereince  last  time.
 I  am  also  searching  for  Chaetomorpha.  Do  you  know  where  I  can  get  it  from  ?
 
 Protein  Skimmer  is  running  from  the  start.  Need  it  all  the  time   Thumbs Up  
 
 @  Cokeamod  :  lol  thank  you  for  your  comments.  I  do  water  change  for  controlling  nitrates  and  generally  keeping  water  Quality.  Trace  and  major  elements  for  the  marine  life.   Rock On  
 
 For  the  river  bed  sand  ,  it  has  got  delayed  due  to  work  but  i  will  go  there  and  will  keep  you  updated  for  it  all  the  time.  can  you  take  the  40kgs  of  Crushed  Coral  sand  that  I  have  as  it  is  just  lying  around  and  of  no  use  for  me  ...
 
 Cheers  !
 Doka

 Hi  Doka,
 
 First  of  all  please  edit  your  profile  and  add  your  real  name  &  location  in  your  signature.  I  have  seen  your  name  lots  of  time  in  IAH  but  didn't  know  who  are  you  until  Amod  had  replied  you  on  this  thread  with  your  real  name  (Prasun).
 
 Well...  comming  to  the  subject,  as  Arvind  &  Amod  had  already  said  about  the  aquascaping.  It  can  be  much  better.
 
 Are  you  using  any  power  head  or  water  circulator  to  circulate  the  water.
 
 It  will  be  better  if  water  will  flow  all  around  the  LR.  Please  rearrange  the  LR  according  to  the  maximum  gap  between  them  and  add  few  good  &  powerful  power  head  to  circulate  the  water  all  around.

 I  really  like  your  aquascape....witha  right  selection  of  corals  it  will  look  amazing..
 
 however  IMO  the  rock  in  between  looks  like  a  bridge  that  connects  2  buildings  rather  than  a  reef...
 
 Amazing  tang  and  mushrooms  you  have....I  hope  youll  be  able  to  control  the  algae  from  the  sunlight...will  be  following  this  thread  Smile

 thank  you  for  the  encouraging  comments  ...  the  Aquasacpe  was  to  get  sunlight  to  the  front  of  the  tank  and  have  a  bridge  in  between  looks  sifferent  and  2  places  where  fishes  can  hide  and  live  
 
 now  the  setup  has  changed  
 
 for  algae  :  scrubing  
 chaetpomorpha  
 
 will  post  new  pics  soon  
 
 thanks  and  regards,
 PRasoon
