This EBI's been through a lot!
Now it's having a try at saltwater
First off...let me just say that I had to fix the light myself being that the bulb blew out (It's a common problem). It takes a semi-common 2-pin CFL Light so I just cut the extra piece that goes around the bulb (to screw into the fixture) and put that around the new bulb...problem solved.
: Eheim Ecco 2232 & A very small powerhead that's like 80gph
: Stock 13w EBI Fixture with 5000K Light. Soon to be 50% 10000K / 50% Actinic Bulb
: Live Sand
: Right now I have none...I plan on getting some lower light and hardier ones in a month or so. this is my first saltwater tank so I want to learn a little bit more and get used to having a stable tank before I start with coral.
: Right now I have like 5 hermit crabs (tiny ones) and 1 Yellowtail damsel. The damsel is just to cycle the tank, although he does look nice, and I already talked to the LFS about bringing him back when I am done cycling the tank.
Future Fauna: One shrimp (Not sure what kind yet)
2x Clown Fish (also not sure what species yet)
Some emerald crabs
13mm Lily pipe set w/ Clear filter tubing.
50/50 10000K/Actinic Bulb
Inline Heater - (Do they make them for a tank this small? If I got a bigger heater would it still be OK being that it's adjustable and is only set for a specific temperature?)
MORE LIVE ROCK
Some Mushrooms or polyps or something
: (Im expecting it to look like more of a reef tank once I get the white/blue bulb.)
