Mounting ATI Sunpower inside the canopy or DIY mounting legs
I picked up an ATI Sunpower used and want to mount it in the canopy, my wife likes the closed top look.
I would like to see pictures of how others have mounted the ATI fixture in a canopy or DIY mounting legs
Picked up a 6 Bulb 48" ATI Sunpower at my LFS
with no DC power adapters for the fans or LED bars
3 power adapters/ supplies
1 for the fans
2 for the LED bars
What power supplies do I need to pick up
I have a 15g Aqueon column tank 13L x 13W x 19H and getting ready to try different aquascapes.
Generally how much space is needed between glass and rock work
for different setups
I have some tonga branch and Pukani
Softies & Zoo's
Thanks for all the feedback, just trying to visualize something that’s appealing to the eye but not overdone, too much of one thing, plus not getting upset from the anemones moving or getting larger killing everting it come in contact with.
Zoas would be great but they are on the small side and...
I am in the process of getting everything together for an primarily anemone tank. From doing research and experiences that BTAs pretty much will kill off everything it comes in contact with.
What reef weed could be used to for fill in the empty spaces on the rockwork, just looking for...
I use a wood templet 3/4" , use a hole saw on the wood the same size as the diamond bit,
used spring clamps to hold it in place run the hose up to the diamond bit and you will be good to go. On the thin glass very light pressure, the diamond bit sands the hole through the glass.
The tank will be mixed LPS & SPS, 13g desktop- 55g under the desk.
I am gathering all the equipment to finish up setting my Tank
13g with 55g sump/50% volume, about 30 gallons combined.
Lighting will be T5.
Refugium if needed?
I plan on running extra filtration in the sump, more rock.
I Went through and read a bunch of the Featured Nano Reef Aquariums
and there are quite few that do not use a protein skimmer, most run GAC, and do frequent water changes and dose different things.
Shooting for LPS, flower anemones and easier SPS, monties , birds nest...
From the articles, GAC is better at removing DOC and that Protein skimmers max out about 30% TOC/DOM.
Carbon dosing and protein skimmers
"œFinally, mechanical filtration in the form of skimming but not GAC does provide an effective means of bacteria export, at least up to a point. It...
