Hello, I am looking to set up a 35 gallon, 140ltr tank. (length x width x height Inches — 36x15x15, cm — 90x40x40 approx)
This tank is pre-drilled for a sump, and I have a space below the tank (inches — 30x17x24, cm — 76x45x60), to include the sump, ato and anything else that might be needed/recommended.
This would be with a sand bed of at least two inches of live sand (any deeper bottom layers being dry sand), and a mixture between dry and wet live rock initially. Any corals for the tank are likely to just be zoes and softies, like my 9 gallon, 35ltr, tank.
I currently breed a lot of livefood, both for my smaller tank and for my freshwater tanks I have. These include daphnia, grindle worms, vinegar eels, microworms, bbs, and looking to set up a tank for copepods as well.
I make my own saltwater as I have an RO/DI unit.
I am wondering what would be suitable for this tank? Especially considering I am still reasonably new to keeping saltwater tanks.
The only ones for sure are
1x Cleaner Shrimp (the reason I wanted a saltwater tank since I first saw one as a kid)
1x Royal Gramma (the condition of getting help moving the tank around and setting it up (still like them, so no issue for me))
Possibilities I am thinking of
1x Goby/Shrimp pair
Fish that I know I am not interested in, no matter how many have tried to persuade me otherwise.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, whether that be about the stockings, or maybe even what rock amount or preferred sands.
