  1. Default Freddie's 14 Gallon Reef


    0 Not allowed!
    Ok so I have decided that I am definitely going to start up reef at school. I think biocube is my best option for the tank. I really like how it basically comes with everything. I will also be adding a small heater, probably around 50watts, and a small powerhead, either koralia, or the new aqueon ones specifically for the biocube. I think I am going to go with about 20 pounds of rock, and 20 pounds of sand. That seems like a lot of sand so I might not use all of the second bag, I just want enough sand for a pistol shrimp and goby to be able to make their home.

    Stocking Plans

    Fish
    Randall Goby
    Firefish Goby

    I absolutely love Randall gobies, they are such awesome looking little fish.

    Inverts
    Randall Pistol Shrimp
    Cleaner Shrimp(either a skunk or a fire shrimp)
    A feather Duster or two
    A few snails(probably an astrea or two, a nassarius or two and maybe a cerith or two)
    And a few hermits

    Corals
    Many Zoa's
    Green Star Polyp
    Daisy Polyp
    Possibly some PomPom pulsing Xenia, depending on how it grows in my reef at home
    Maybe down the road some LPS like a small open brain, or candy cane

    Once this tank is up and running I may try my hand at fragging so I can get my first few corals for free from my tank at home

    I think that is pretty much everything I wanted to cover in my first post. My one main question is what people suggest the koralia nano powerhead or the aqueon one. I have a 750gph Koralia and a 500gph aqueon and my 58g and it just seems to me like the koralia puts out a wider current than the aqueon.

    Also another question, does anyone have any experience with getliverock.com I really like their prices at $3 a pound including shipping you really can't get any better. But I can't find any reviews of them online anywhere so I figured I'd ask =)

    I'm looking forwards to updates (ie.... Pics) as you go

    The koralia nano is a really good power head. I have two that I use in my QT tank when needed. they do a really good job of gently moving all the water around in my 20 gallon QT

    That's going to be a really full tank once your corals take off and start to grow. I've bought a 2" frag of green start polyp 4 or 5 months ago and now it is easily 10 to 20 X that size now.

    You'll just have to find someone to sell your frags to
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I have 2 koralia nanos in my 58 gal fowler.The one has been running for about 3 yrs now with no hiccups. For another fish consideration check out the green clow gobys,they are tiny and have loads of color and attitude for small tanks,mine is a real character. Colonial feather dusters would also be a great choice.

    Thanks for the link genocidex.
    I will be posting lots of pictures as I go, I'm getting more excited now =). I'm probably going to start ordering stuff tomorrow. I sure hope I can find someone to buy coral if I need to I just love the way it looks so I want it =) I will probably go with the koralia nano since it seems like people like it.
    Thanks for the idea smaug, they certainly do look like fun little fish!

    if you cant find some one to buy your coral off you try a local marine lfs im sure youll find one that will be more than willing to give you store credit.
