What kind of light is going in there?

rocketlily
09-28-2008, 05:17 PM
Thanks for the compliments on the canopy and stand. I figure my "free" stand will probably cost me around 20 hours of time. I'm working on staining it today, 2 coats of stain, then it needs 3 - 4 coats of clear.

For lighting, I am hoping to put in an 18" SlimPaq Actinic T5HO. It's been back ordered by the supplier, without a delivery date, but hope it will be in when it's time to put in water.

What date do we put in the water?

rocketlily
09-28-2008, 06:08 PM
Mostly zoos and a few mushrooms. I would really like to add Suncorals if I could find some small frags at a very good price that works with the budget. In reading about the Suncorals, it doesn't look like they need alot of light. I've been feeding my Duncanopsammia axifuga 3 -4 times a week now, since February, so feeding woudn't be an issue.

Anyone out there with small Suncoral frags at good price?

mseepman
09-28-2008, 06:12 PM
I have that light in my nano canopy. I use it in combination with my 70w MH. Gives out some pretty decent light and was well priced. Only problem that I can see so far is that only Current makes the bulbs for it so far. Hoping to see some more in the market soon as the nano market continues to take off.

Suncorals don't need light, but they do require constant feeding.

I'm used to feeding corals in my other tank. Don't mind it at all. Sometimes it's very interesting to watch them eat.

If we're thinking the same then you must have very good taste in tanks.

Thought I would post a picture of my tank tonight. I've updated all the prices on the first post. I'm really happy with the way the stock has responded to the change in tanks. Colors are starting to change already. Still need to add a few things but I thought I would wait and see how everything like's it placement first. The damsel was going to be headed back to some store, but I would like to keep it, so this is his new home. I still have to figure out how to keep the sand in place, as he keeps fanning holes and covering up mushrooms and hitchhiker growth on the bottom rocks.

Just redid my prices, due to today's price increase on zoanthids and it looks like I'm over and finished.

This challange has been great to participate in as first of all I got to start a new tank. Two for the living room, not bad. I'm also not sorry I did it because the zoanthids I had needed a change in scenery and my little blue fish needed a new home.

There has been amazing improvement in the stock transferred. Probably due to better water conditions and easier to move the corals around for proper lighting and flow. I have let the 50 gal go unattended while getting the new corner tank ready. I'll probably keep this one running until next summer, as I believe it will be hard to control the temperature.

I look forward to watching everyone else and good luck to you all.

I reverted the zoas prices 20mins before this post was made. I also made it clear that no one was DQ'd. So I don't know what the fuss is all about.

All I was trying to do was make a detailed price list for everyone, and to differentiate prices on the regular and rare zoa's, but even that has been revised (Simply Zoas.. regular or rare, same price)

Your zoa prices are fine, and you are not DQ'd... LOL

Here's my Nov 15th pictures. I have not added anything new in the last month so there have been no changes in the prices. I seem to have room for 2 little red mushrooms if anyone around Edmonton needs to sell some. I have not included in my pricing the Aiptasia or Hydroids as I'm considering them free hitchhikers.:lol:

Bought a new orange zoanthid at a local store in Edmonton on Saturday. Prices on first post have been updated.

My daughter came home for the weekend and she agreed that my aquascaping did kind of suck. So we spent the day re-aquascaping. Broke a couple of heads of two of the zoanthids and glued them onto a new rock. Nice way to get a free frag. Not sure what colors they are but we'll see when they open.

Also bought a new camera so hopefully the pictures in the future will be better. I'll have to wait for a few days to post the pictures as they will be downloaded into the computer that won't have internet access for a few day. A little off topic, but we finally get high speed internet tomorrow. We live 18 km outside of Edmonton and until now have never had access to any high speed internet providers. Finally joining the 20th century.:multi:

Yeah high speed is nice... but ours is a bit finicky from time to time (5 min outside Calgary so it works on radio waves??)

A new camera.... NICE! I'd love to get one,

I've been having trouble trying to keep some of the frags mounted in place. Some of them always end up pushed out of their places and lying in the sand. I've been blaming the Damsel for all this trouble.

Well this morning I peered into the tank with my LED flashlight, and what did I see. A CRAB!!! No idea where he came from and no ID on him as I didn't get a good enough look. Looks to be the size of a loonie.

Haven't figured out what to do yet. Going to think about it for a day or two, as in the last 8 months I've had to get rid of 3 other hitchhiker crabs and kind of feeling bad about it.

rocketlily

Here's my FTS for December 15th. Here's the first picture of the newly aquascaped tank. Having problems with algae blooms. Looks like I should have taken more time to let the tank cycle before adding the corals and fish. I don't think it will be too hard to deal with. I still have an unknown crab hiding somewhere, but he's not done any damage so I'll let him be.

Budget has been updated to reflect the new Flourescant zoanthid I bought from a local reefer. Still have not added the apitasia to the budget as I think it should be a free hitchhiker.

I would love to take credit for the aquascaping, but it was my daughter's work. She seems to have a talent. If I can keep my hands out of the tank I do expect some growth from the zoanthids. I'm not sure how much with the lighting only being incandescant. In the past I have experienced amazing growth with a 150 MH, but I didn't use it on this tank due to the heating issues.

I had to post my Jan 15th pic today, as I'm leaving on holidays Wed morning for 2 weeks in the Domican Republic and won't be back in time for the Jan 15th deadline. I'm looking forward to some sun and hopefully snorkling for the first time.

All did not go well with the little tank during the last month. I spent too much time on the 90 gal tank and Christmas. Didn't do water changes and probably overfeed the little Damsel, so I have had a major outbreak of algae. I bought a little Turbo snail and he's been doing a great job of cleaning things up. Hopefully by next month it will look better.

Also had major problems with a hitcherhiker crab. Zoanthids were constantly knocked off and upside down in the sand and mushrooms picked off their rocks. Friday morning he was sent to inspect the septic pipes and hasn't reported back yet.

Sorry for the very bad picture, but hopefully next month will be better.

How'd you catch the little bugger. I've been trying for a month to catch a large crab in my tank. Did you have to move some rockwork or did you use a trap?

rocketlily
01-04-2009, 06:53 AM
I have used this method 3 times in the past year and it always seems to work. I cut a plastic water bottle in half, throw away the top and poke a few holes in the bottom so it doesn't float. The in the bottle put in some Mysis, nori and anything else that might entice the little begger. I then lean it up against a rock that I think he might be in, giving him a nice easy path to the food. Once he goes down for the food he can't climb up.

Sometimes it only takes a few minutes after lights out, other times it has taken a couple of nights.

Good luck. I know that they can be very annoying to say the least.

I tried the bottle trap and even leaned it up against the rock like you did. Bugger is just too smart or too full of Ricordea to go for the bait. I'll keep trying though. Thanks for the info.

The last month has gone well. Green algae is now under control. All zoanthids have grown well but blue mushrooms are not opening up as well as they used too. The coraline algae growth on the back glass is growing too well and really takes away from the rest of the picture. Guess it's some to do some scraping.

Here's my March 15th picture. Posted it on the first page as well. Nothing is new this month. Algae is under control, I believe due to the one turbo snail and the cutting down on feeding. Three of the zoanthids decided this week to only open half of the polyps, not sure why. Finally getting the coraline algae scraped off the back of the tank. I think it looks a little nicer than way. I have been letting a couple of Apitasia's grow bigger and I think they're big enough now to get a hold of the syringe. (I'm still counting them as free hitchhikers)

That's because for some reason the only thing I can take a proper picture of is a zoanthid.

Time has come to end the contest and it has been fun. I've enjoyed the little tank and the challenges that come with it. For the most part all zoanthids have grown and done well. The one I use as my avatar is not doing well. Only a few heads are open and the others have not opened in the past three weeks. I've tried moving it and dipping it but really unsure of what is happening. The blue mushrooms have not done well, but the green ones have done extremely well. Go figure. The Blue Damsel is impossible to keep from digging holes in the sand. A real little s#*t. The left rock is now leaning to the point where it is almost a bridge. I reposition the rock and he finds a way to move it. His nightime bed is underneath it and I guess he doesn't like it messed with.

I'm glad I kept this tank simple. Nothing to go wrong with the equipment, however there is a terrible noise that comes from the glass in one of the front corners when cleaning it. I've never posted a picture of the wiring for the DIY lighting, someday I might. I thought if I did post it for last months photo contest I would surely win. Not something I would want to be known for. If I had to do it over again, I'd do exactly the same thing.

Here's the final FTS and some of the corals in it.
