    Thanks Chris

    I will be looking into that in more detail
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Sorry just felt the need to put some more thumbs up haha
    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

    Wow awesome upgrade Cliff! Perfect spot for it too.
    The options you will have for stocking this just boggle the mind too, lol, you could really go crazy.

    Glad you started this thread so early, love to see the ideas and the work in progress!

    I bet this will be the most followed journal thread ever, lol.

    LOL, I know what you mean.

    I’ve been having blast reading up on all the possibilities for fish as well as more anemones

    While the rock is re-curing in a QT set-up, I decided to try a product called Flatworm exit (a product made by salfert). And I must say, I learned two shocking things by doing that. The first is that flatworms are like rats, for every one that you see in your tank, there is likely 100s more in all the little nooks and cracks within your rocks. About 20 minutes after adding the treatment there were (what seemed like) 100s and 1,000s of dead flatworms floating at the top. I quickly netted them all out until there were no more, followed by a 100% water change and adding a fluval 4 internal filter filled with only carbon.

    The second thing I learned is that you should NEVER EVER use a product like this in a tank. As the flat worms die off, they release the toxins that are inside their bodies. With so many flatworms that you will have (and never be able to see), that’s a lot of toxins in the water when they die. I now completely understand all a stories that I found on-line of people completely crashing their tanks when using this product to treat for flatworms. I guess this is a good example of the importance of researching first.

    I’ll also add a little ammonia to the barrel latter today to see if the BB was damaged at all by the toxins while they were in the water.

    I’ll likely change the water in the QT barrel for the rocks a few more times this week just to be on the safe side.

    I remember seeing Mr salt water tank off youtube did the same thing, treated with the flat worm stuff then went away for the weekend.

    Lost all but one fish in his tank! :(


    Just a good job you did it in the tub and not the tank!


    Been doing LOTS of reading ovenight Cliff.

    If you are building an algae scrubber, are you going with CFL or RED LED's?

    I've going to do LED's on the scrubber on my new 210G system.

    Also, have you thought about what sort of scrubber you are going to do?

    UAS, Waterfall or horizontal?

    Here is a PERFECT example of using charcoal properly! To remove the treatment med.

    If one were to forget, and treat a tank with fish, a way to save them would be to add charcoal asap. This would not only remove the med but might remove organic toxins the flatworms that did die had already released - just realize that charcoal may not necessarily absorb some, any, or enough such toxin to save any fish. So don't count on it for this purpose.

    LED's use far less electricity and provide far more lumens than any other light. So, while most SW aquariums are hog's for energy, at least this application will help - and can eliminate some pumps/filtering systems further saving electricity = money and less heat that can cause problems for the aquarium.
