Hello! My name is Dan. I have recently taken down my reef tank, as I acquired a nuisance algae and lost most of my corals.
Wanting to get into the Live plants!!
A little history:
My wife bought me the tank a few years ago now. I set it up as a reef, as I wasnt new to the hobby by any means. Took my Biocube 29 gallon and did some simple mods, pump upgrade, got rid of stock hood, new lighting etc etc.
29 Gallon Biocube
Return: maxi jet 1200 (295gph)
Lighting: T5-HO - 4x24w- with one reflector)
Filter floss inserted in old gutted B.C. cartridge for filtration of solids.
Chemi Pure(1 full unit) for carbon/phosphates (don't know anything better)
Its been running with flourite 20lbs (going to add more) since 3/23/10 after I cleaned and took down my saltwater. I have some driftwood still soaking, but a piece that has already sunk and leeched all it will.
I will not clutter the "Main Discussion" forum with my questions, but they do relate to more specifics than what I could find during my searches here and there. So I guess I can just post individual ?'s in the appropriate Sub Forums.
Thanks, I hope to begin planted aquaria as a step down from my old Reef days, hopefully swapping for less maintenance
