James's 2FT Cube

Postby flame_angel » Fri 27 Mar, 2009 10:26 pm

I started this 2ft cube earlier this year, with hope of it beeing a small reef with half a dozen or so fish.

Tanks Specs

Display Tank: 2ft cube

Display Lighting: 4*24 watt T5 lighting setup with individual reflectors

Stand: Aqua one AR620 stand

Hood: Sheet of glass

Equipment Used

2* aqua one 500lph power heads
1* aqua one 500lph hang on filter
1* aqua one 100 watts heater
1* aqua one thermometer

20 Kg of live rock
20kg of 3mm substrate

Live Stock List

1* black & white clown
1* common clown
1* Green mandarin
15* Hermit crabs & snails

Here are some pics






I plan to put corals in the tank in the coming weeks though I am not sure to what coral will thrive under the current lighting system I have any suggestions?

What would be the maximum number of fish the tank could hold I was thinking perhaps around 6-7.

I was considering perhaps installing another filter or maybe even a protein skimmer to enhance the water quality any suggestions to what might be beneficial.

Any help and advice will be greatly appreciated thanks. :thumbsup:
