This isn't a display tank as much as it'll be a multi purpose for breeding/grow out. However, who says I can't have corals 😛. Already have GSP but I'm gonna get some xenia and kenya tree. All corals I actually like but didn't want it my DT. Is run off of a canister filter as I had it lying around. This tank is supposed to be lower maintence and its in my fish room so not a full on display tank. May get a hob skimmer latter down the line too.

The tank is an oceanic and has similar dimensions to a 55gal. I had all this shelf rock lying around so decided to make use of it here. I honestly do dislike the dimensions for a reef but this will be sufficient. As for biome, I broke down my 15 gal and used all rock and sand from there. Pulled additional rock from my DT and sump. Took advantage of a sale of some carib sea live sand as well.

Is this tank still running?

Yup but currently being used for qt so I could go fallow in my 120. Relocated this to the office. Been thinking about putting an snowflake eel, valentini puffer and a nem with some larger clowns in here eventually. I've also been considering switching this to freshwater so things are in limbo atm.

I vote for planted fw, seems you have enough sw tanks!
Yeah I think you're right 🤣 I used to have a 75 community tank so I'd like to have a large freshwater again. I haven't gotten into CO2 but I think setups for this size tank would get expensive. Not that I need to use CO2 but the inner gear junkie wants to try it out

Def! I had a 55g but sold it cuz o hated the dims so much. However, once my sump gets replaced with a 40 breeder, going to use the 29g for co2 planted. I really want to try my hand with it

I also have a couple 29s lying around that I was considering before you pinged my tank 🤣

It's been decided I shall take this tank. I plan for a nice planted tank and I'd love to get more seriously into plants. C02 injection isn't out of the question. My only problem is that this light is a marine light and not for plants. It'll function for all your low and probably medium light plants but we'll see if I upgrade that. Probably not anytime soon

I’m doing a guppy sale and trade on Thursday. Selling many of my fancy guppies and trading a prime female for a very nice looking platinum male.

Going to run this guy through qt just to be Safe.

I used to breed all the live bearers in my bedroom as a kid. I had a 75 gal, 2 10s and a 30gal. Do you have any pics of yours?

I currently breed shrimp and sell them and I'm going to be seeing up a few more tanka for that. They don't need a heater and sponge filters are plenty. I do want to start growing Java moss alongside of them to sell too. Water wisteria grows rapidly in my tanks too.
