Re:Bare tank?


Pete, thanks for the response 🙂 Let me tell you what I have and you can let me know if it’s enough 🙂

I have a Fluval 405-mechanical, biological, and chemical filtration system. It has 4 media trays with 2 compartments in each, and four foam filters.

As far as the protein skimmer, I have a coral-life 125 neddle wheel super skimmer.

Current aquarlium chiller to maintain the proper temp.

Power compact light that has all three setting’s- moon, actinic, and white.

I have a small power head at the bottom of the tank postioned so that it keeps the water moving at the bottom- very gentle though.

I was going to make up a corner of the aqurium with tall fake plants and of course I will have various other fake plants of different heights and plenty of hitching posts for them.

I will of course keep plenty of snails in the tank to keep it clean as well.

Let me know if you think what I have is good enough. If not, I’ll make whatever changes you suggest.
