I have an Oceanic 30 gallon hex tank that is empty right now because of past problems I've had with it.
Whenever I've set it up and put plants and fish in, no longer than two weeks it gets very white cloudy, and I can't figure out why?
So here's my request of you veterans. If someone would take the time to take me through a new setup of a 30 gallon hex tank, I'd appreciate it.
I'd like to set it back up, but I want it to look nice and not have the hassle of getting frustrated when the water turns white again.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
I'll be running a Tetra tec filter, measured for up to 40 gallons, I'll have to add lighting to get up to 3.0 watts per gallon for the depth of the tank.
I'm going to use Shultz aquatic soil and latarite as the substrate, and I'm thinking this time I'll get a small powerhead mid way down to help with mid and bottom flow??
I'd like to make it a planted tank, with possibly one show fish, and a school of neons or something.....haven't figured that out just yet.
So, those of you who wish to help out, you have a clean canvas...help me fill it up...hehe
