Hello, I made an earlier post but did some major changes so I just decided I would start a new thread on it, if a mod can delete my old post that would be baller.
Anyways, the tank is a 65 gallon flat back hex. Used to be a reef, tore that down, made it a peacock tank (didn't work out, I couldn't find more large peacocks and don't want to order online so they were beating the [censored][censored][censored][censored] out of eachother so I just decided it would be best to rehouse them).
So now I'm back. I don't have any huge fancy lights or co2 systems so this is going to be relatively low tech. I was going to keep a sand bottom (left over from the reef) but it kept buffering my pH up which wasn't going to fly in my books. So last night I tore everything out and replaced it with 50 lbs of gravel and 20 lbs of flourite. I havn't the slightest idea fish wise or plant wise.
Comments and suggestions ALWAYS welcome, good or bad.
