Hello everyone! I joined the forum a couple of weeks ago, I've been in the background doing plenty of reading up! I've been keeping fish for 12 years - amarican cichlids, african cichlids, community tanks, and more recently got bitten by the saltwater bug and had a 100 gallon SPS reef running until we had our daughter, when I downsized to an Aqua Medic Chromis tank which ran for about a year as a reef. I sold all the livestock last week to a friend, and have been gathering parts to put together a nature style planted tank for a month or two now. The aim is a true Amano style high tech setup, with no equipment visible in the tank, other than glassware. I had an Eheim 2224 sat in the shed, and the 4x24W T5 light unit I was using with the reef should give me about 3.2 wpg with some new bulbs in - i've yet to order some bulbs from lamp specs. I have an Aqua Medic Co2 bottle, regulator and solenoid from the calcium reactor that I had running on the big reef, and i've got a drop checker and some lily pipes on the way from china! I aslo have a Tunze nano stream 6025 which is rated at 4500lph that i could use for added circulation - is 32 times turnover too much??! I see alot of you use the Koralia's to add flow. I picked up some Dennerle substrate which will be covered with some black quartz, and i'm using some normal shingle to build the back of the tank up to give some perspective. I've constructed an inline Co2 reactor and heater with some solvent weld bits- no leaks! There's a couple of probe holders where my pH and temperature probes will go. It'll be gravity fed from the tank, before the Eheim - in at the top, out at the bottom. I've been doing some aquascaping today- just plain old bogwood that i've fixed together with cable ties - The pipe is just to hold it up until it's siliconed in it's final position!! I'm rock shopping today, maybe 3 larger stones?? I'll talk about plants later i think, questions and comments welcome!!
