Hey fellas!! i didn't expect myself to be starting a thread in this section but here am i! 

Tank Size : 422 with durso overflow and 3x1.5x1.5ft sump

Lighting: 4ft White blue LED light set

Fishlist: Right now mainly angels mix of large and dwarfs.. maybe 1 or 2 tangs but i foresee it to be largely an angel tank.

Current rock scape, all these rocks were from my old 3 footer and its definitely not enough! will be getting more soon..

my sump, A deltec SC1455 skimmer, 12L of Siphorax and 5L of matrix Pond. I've also segregated a section from my return so i can train new fish to eat or act as a grow up tank for small fishes.

Camp here.

Hi EvolutionsZ,

1) Is the "segregated a section" next to the filter compartment?

2) Great to slope the return water from filter compartment.

3) You mind to PM the cost of your tank setup and source to get it, thinking of get one. 

Thanks.

Hi bro,

if u meant the eggcrate then its to seperate any fishes i might keep there in future from the return pump, this set up brand new by N30 cost almost 2K, but i bought it 2nd hand so its definitely cheaper.

Some updates!

So i bought a regal angel and a baby (1.5")emperor angel a week ago and they have been doing great! 

The regal is eating very well on pellets but the baby emperor is only picking on the rocks for now.

Kinda sucks that my relatively new LED's blue led suddenly spoil couple days ago so only the white leds are lighting up the tank.

Also added some new LRs

This weeks' new addition, 

a Sub-adult changing blue-face angel, it got chased by the regal and has been hiding for the past 2 days, but doing relatively well.

Today chance upon a really nice looking flagfin angel! too beautiful to not purchase it..

38921704602_7db48a28d5_k.jpg20171210_122707 

It started eating pellets hours later so thats good news!

I also decided to make my own DIY fish food blend

my supplements

25086266668_785ba22e14_k.jpg20171210_184629 

The ingredients

38921703132_1ca3a8bf41_k.jpg20171210_201807 

Selcon

Brightwell Angelixir

Brightwell HUFA amino acids

Seachem garlic guard

Seachem Vitality

10 cubes of mysis

5 cubes of brine shrimp

5 cubes of Rotifers

TDO & NLS pellets

Red and green ocean free nori sheets

15 clams

5 prawns

so after blending, repack and refreeze.. made a little too much! probably will last me a long time

38921702162_4ed1bc5eb7_k.jpg20171210_204009

Here's a video of the regal and flagfin eating clams and proceed to do some dance off

I plan to do cupramine on tuesday.. and prazipro thereafter.

Some updates:

Current livestock

Regal angel

pair of clownfish

Velentino puffer

flagfin angel

baby emperor angel 

coral beauty

blue face angel

majestic angel 

 

Bought tobikko as a nutritional snack for them and they love it!

24336127777_9ff7ae5194_z.jpg20171219_215525 

I soaked it to get rid of any additives or preservatives that could be inside and was pretty shocked to get a very orange dye leaking out... washed and soak couple times till it was clear.

24336127117_36c0ab5832_z.jpg20171219_220209

Next, soak with brightwell angelixir and vitality to further improve nutritional level and then store it in a ziplock bag in the freezer.

Also upgraded my skimmer pump to a jebao DCS-2000, really small and powerful! im also 'upgrading' my main return from a ehiem 1262 to a Jebao DCS-12000, upgrade in flow but downgrade in brand i guess..

27421211549_9f5cf00531_z.jpg20171220_194248

A bacteria blend i have been using since my reefing days.. cheap, good but extremely smelly! no idea why it smells so bad but it works!

24336127897_7426489dc3_z.jpg20171217_135433

Video update, just did a rescape to utilize the 2ft height, i was wondering why the fishes are always sticking to the bottom area around the rocks, then i found out that they never swam past the tallest rocks! so i did a quick rescape and true enough, they started to explore the top section of the tank as well..

Here's them eating pellets mix of TDO, NLS and hikari algae wafer, pardon the cloudy water due to the rescape and pardon the ugly lighting.. my new light with proper blue/white led is arriving soon!

Definitely a queen angel. maybe a tang or 2 and then the rest would most likely be small fishes.. hopefully! hahaha

Hi evoZ what’s cupramine & prazipro?
Both are medications... Cupramine is essentially copper for treating ich and marine velvet... Prazipro is for treating flukes generally...

You may want to verify whether cupramine can treat velvet. They can be found in few lfses, ah beng, seaview, petmart, c328 clementi, Madpetz, etc. Do read up and decide whether u need to use these medication. 

For tank maker, most lfses can custom make for you.... Iwarna, aquamarin, de aquatic, n30, Pinnacle, etc. Sound easy but once u go into details, many things to consider when comparing to price. Have fun.

nice fowlr!

saw you have some chaeto in the sump. remembered reading somewhere macroalgae will absorb copper, and if the chaeto starts dying off, the absorbed copper will then be released back into the water column. but thats what i read long ago, not sure true or not.

but for your water volume. maybe no issues even if it's true.

anws, how about a female regal for that stud male lol?

Sorry to sound like a noob, but how did you know that regal is a male?

Thanks! actually the chaeto was browning out (due to the copper probably) and i threw them away..

How do u tell the male and females apart?

eheim's closest will be the 1264, but its only rated for 4800l/hr. but honestly i dun think this jebao's really 12000l/hr.. more like 8-9000l/hr at max output. i have mine at 70% now and it feels like twice the water movement as comparted to my eheim 1262 (3400l/hr).

No complains though, its more energy saving and MUCH quieter as compared to a eheim. however it definitely will not last as long.
