Since the tank is finally starting to take shape it's time for a build thread First of all thanks everyone who donated equipment! (xcaret for the aquarium, and heaters, and reflectors? Coral reefer for the sand. Anathema for more sand, GDawson for the ballast, gimmito for rocks and salt). It is very much appreciated! Since I won't be around forever to take care of it and neither will the teachers helping me out, the tank will need to be as low maintenance as possible. Calcium reactors or two part dosing is just bound to go wrong so SPS and most LPS are unfortunately out of the question. The plan is a sea grass meadow on the left side leading into a macro algae dominated middle with on the right side coral bomies dominated by soft corals. 4-5'' SB throughout the tank along with LR and the macro algae will consist of the main filtration. Carbon will be run in a old fluval filter. No sump or skimmer. Lighting will consist of 2x 175w and 1x 250w 10K MH. Fish wise it is still an open question, but so far this is the list: -Yellow tail damsel -pair of clowns -Jawfish, hopefully a pair -A filefish, also hopefully a pair -Pistol shrimp/ goby combo -Small group of Royal gramma -Dwarf angel trio (thinking C. argi?) -Some kind of butterfly -Tang or rabbit fish down the road once the macro algae have established well enough Pictures to come! Still looking for some powerheads so if any one has any laying around they want to donate LMK.
