Will Posted March 11, 2010 Share Posted March 11, 2010 Im planning on starting a Macroalgae planted tank housing a dwarf octopus (o. mercratoris*) . Tank: 16gal bowfront (rimless) & drilled on the left glass pane for inflow and out flow (it sits in the corner of my desk). Sump: 20 gallon tank under the desk with 400-500 gph return pump (i dont want to have any power-heads or cords leading into the display) Skimmer: BakPak (left over from the old tanks i had in highschool), will be placed insump or hanging onto the sump Mechanical Filtration: Filter sock heater: 100w lighting: 96w powercompact (Quad) Overflow: http://www.bigalsonline.com/BigAlsUS/ctl3684/cp18656/si1380638/cl0/lifegardaquaticsformerlypentair34slipbulkhead Return flow: 1/2" bulkhead with a verticle spray bar with holes drilled up and down it. there will be about 3 feet from the return pump to where it will go into the tank. I also plan to get a sheet of glass or acrylic cut to cover the entire top of the tank. Live rock: 5-10lbs in the display & 15lbs in the sump Sand: live 20-25lbs for a 2-3" sand bed Let me know what yall think Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
