Thread: Kyle's 34g Reef

    Default Kyle's 34g Reef

    Hi again, after setting up the 55g freshwater for the g/f and kids and still having my old 34g running at my parents we decided to move it to our new place. Hate to say I kind of neglected it over the past 2 years since theres no longer a saltwater store near by. When I lived in columubs there were 2 great stores and since they are over an hour away now I kind of let the tank go and it was partially over run by algae. No fish, no cuc, just all my LR and some corals left. Put everything in buckets and moved it over, cleaned out the tank out, got new sand and put everything back up. So its been up and running a few weeks now and I'll post up some pictures. Glad a lot of the LR is still a nice purple from the coraline, but some rock I had to clean so its white again. Here is the breakdown 34g Solana Aquarium, built in sump in the back that holds the skimmer, heater and pump, 64 watt compact light, 40 lbs LR, 2" sand, koralia powerhead. Currently theres about 8 hermit crabs, 5 snails, emerald crab, coral banded shrimp, firefish, bicolor blenny, orange ocellaris clownfish and a black ocellaris clownfish. I dont remember all the name of the corals so might have to help me out with names.

    Can see the blenny poking his head out, he has such character

    What is that last coral? I dont remember but its from years ago, he seems to be doing better then what it was but if someone can let me know. Also in the first one, that one has 2 heads on it, should I seperate them or they fine together? Thanks hope everyone enjoys!

    That last pic looks like a frog spawn (spelling?) to me, the top one a hammer coral
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Awesome pictures... that last coral picture is a frogspawn or a branching hammerhead coral
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank
