Hello everyone, My name is Brandon, I just got into Salt water tanks about a year ago. I started out with a 30 gallon tank and it failed horribly. My live rock is still alive and my Fish are doing ok. However everything else just want to Hell. I blamed it basically on the crappy filters I used sometimes cheap is not always best. So Basically a friend gave me a 42 gallon Hex tank and I decided to almost start completely over. I have the basic stuff setup right now. My filter system is a Fluval G6 a 250 heating element which seems to be keeping the water at about 79-80 degrees F. 40lbs of Live sand. That is my setup right now. My conductivity is about 45% right now which for those Gravity people is about 1.022. I am going to get it to 1.024 mind you this tank is only 3 days old at this point. I use RO water and put my own salt in it. The flow rate of the Fluval is 600 so I do not have a power head in it as of yet. From my research 502 is ideal or 12 per gallon. I am alittle above that so I am going to leave it there for now. What will be added. 1 Marine Fusion Truelemen LED light setup 1 Medic dosage system with a 3 gallon supply. (Manual no float valve yet) approx. 42lbs of Live rock (Fiji) 2 Clown fish (Mated pair) 3 Engineer gobies My goal is to have a complete reef tank with a few fish in it. I don't wanna go fish crazy but I do like to see them moving around. Coral is my biggest issues my last tank just killed everything even after I did the Kalk plus 2 stuff in there. Hense the reason why I am doing the Medic dosage system. Here are a few pictures of what I have now. Suggest and comments are great!!
