Clark Posted October 6, 2013 Share Posted October 6, 2013 Hi everybody! After two failed tanks I gave up for awhile. I'm embarrased by how many corals I've lost over the years! But I'm back to try again with the 55g reef tank. I'm happy there is finally a reef club in Austin! This time around I've replaced the PC lighting with a nice R420R LED light, added Koralia pumps for some wave action, and supplemented the Rubbermaid sump with a canister filter. It's been running since January with live sand and rock, a blenny, and two firefish. Last month I began adding some tiny frags of leather tree coral and green star polyps from River City's $15 bargain bin. And a rose BTA which is blooming nicely. Once I restore my depleted Mg and Ca levels and learn to maintain them I'm hoping to give acropora a try for the first time to get that "genuine reef look". <bites nails> I'd like to learn about 2-part dosing and more about coral feeding to keep this tank healthy for many years to come. I look forward to meeting you all at the club meetings! Clark Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
