I've been into fish keeping for the past 7 years first I started with a mixed fresh moved to a 55g African cichlid then a 100g then a 180gal cichlid moved up to petaluma couldn't bring it with me so up here I got a free 55 acrylic that I refinished and it was a African cichlids tank then a amazon biotope. I also bought a 12 gallon long mr aqua that I plan on converting to salt. I bought a 20 long that I decided to do a nano reef. I was going good for a few months then it started to leak so I moved everything to buckets for about a month. I had some zoas a birds nest and couple other corals. Most survived the bucket tank. I bought a lagoon 25 with price match for 208$ 2 weeks ago and transferred everything over to it except for the sand. For sand I went with tropic eden micro flake gotta say it's the best sand I've seen. I plan on getting a hydra 26 and a tunze 9001 protein skimmer. I am currently working on some diy media baskets and a cover for the back part of the tank. Here is a picture of how it stands will add more updates as time progresses. I hope to learn a lot from members here. I am in search of more corals old 55 12 long that is an African shellie tank. Will eventually be a nano reef with built in filtration. I work at glass shop so glass and acrylic is readily available to me. I am missing one more piece of rock on the right I have the perfect rock for it just need some epoxy.
