So as a few of you know I am a member on NanoReef.Com and its time for another annual contest, the rules are that the tanks must be dry to start and must be between 5 and 9 US Gallons. I have decided to enter and plan on building this thing of beauty/disaster with the spares that I have laying around in my fish cupboard. Here is my entry so far
Tank (22L/ 5.5 gallons, 11" x 11" x 11")
ATO Container (Tide Machine)
Airstone for 40 Litre Tank
ASTA 20 LED Marine
So a couple of things that you might notice, no conventional filtration beyond the live rock and seeded sand (that I shall take from the Mantis Tank - hopefully without the mantis) I plan on having something similar to a mudskipper tank with real tidal action to act as my water movement, also you may notice a distinct lack of heater. This is due to the fact that I want to include only "local" obtained livestock for this tank from the Yorkshire Coast. Mainly hoping to get some Beadlet anemones and run the tank cold as a tide pool type tank.
Stay tuned for this madness as i attempt to figure this out without making the tank a water fountain
