Am in the early stage of planning for an additional (new) 5ft mixed reef project.. and pretty much decided on going with dry rocks (or dry live rocks).. looking for tips/tricks/guidelines to achieve a nice looking tank. Have a few questions regarding rock/aquascaping:
Surely I will need reef cement and glue, some suggested the use of zip ties but I am not really keen.. so would like to know the benefit of using it? Am going to get some new dry rocks, any benefits of using existing LR from my other tank? What about rocks sold in SRC Pasar Malam? Looking for good rock/aquascaping guidelines for my project.. Any other crucial Dos vs Don'ts that I should take note of? Appreciate all suggestions and recommendations.
Bought a new house more than a year ago and it took me that long to realize i have a good spot for reef tank right in front of me. I was originally looking at buying a used 4feet tank but didnt find any that suites my budget and likes in terms of design (specially the overflow design).
Finally last month I've found a 5ft tank thats close to what im looking for and its been delivered to my place by sgbros.
finish setting up.
will add more pics...
Hi, would like to show some of my tank pic and please give some comments if you have. I started reefing for more than 10years and now trying on SPS. As i know keeping SPS is not easy as LPS but i manage to go through with some of the old timer coaching and advise. I still got a lot to learn.....
