Ok it's time to get serious: Karlo's 75G!
I took a dive into the world of salt water for a while and didn't have a lot of success. It was a 75G FOWLR with a 20g sump and 30lbs of live rock. I ran it for 4 months and I felt like I was just getting by. After a recent crash and death I decided to break it down and clean everything up.
Now I have a 75G which I plan on turning into a lightly planted community tank with a good variety of fish. Here's a list of equipment I already have from my previous planted tank endeavors.
Icap Ballast with 2x 48w (actinic and 6700k)
Milwaukee co2 system with glass diffuser.
2bags of ADA amazonia II from another planted tank. (incredibly nasty stuff, how should I clean it?)
2x Hydor Koralia 2
Small UV sterilizer.
I plan on getting the following equipment to add
Pool Filter Sand (possibly over amazonia II?)
new bulb, 10,000k?
If I am gonna reuse the amazonia II I really need to blast it, i mean its really really nasty.
How should I sterilize it?
I'm also planning stocking. Will post that soon.
maybe its the heat in here, maybe its the pressure
you ought to head for the exits, the sooner the better
