Aaron's 50 Gallon Tank

Postby aarongo222 » Mon Mar 18, 2013 3:21 pm

New in Reef Philippines! :D
__________________________________________________________
I started last August 8, 2012 with wrong lighting until march 9, 2013.
This March 10, 2013, my dad and I planned to transfer the aquarium near the sunlight for the shrooms to gain its color and to get natural lighting from the sun. So,
Here is the pic of the aquarium in new location.
Image

Specs:

50 gallon display tank
30-40 gallon sump w/ crush corals (not sure kung 30 or 40 gallons)
Resun 7800 (3000L/Hr) as return pump
4-5" sandbed kaso minsan nagiging 3-4 dahil hinuhukay ng fish....
Queen Turbo Skimmer na modified.
Natural Lighting, Lighting Hours:
6am - 11am Direct sunlight
11am - 4:30pm about 1 - 1.5 meters away from the sunlight
4:30pm onwards, Direct sunlight again

LS:
2x Striped Damsel (Zebra)
1x Tomato clownfish
1x Three Spot Domino Damselfish
8x Red mushroom
1x Green mushroom
18x Blue violet color mushroom (don't know its name)
1x Unidentified zoa :))
5x Nassarius snail
5x Normal size Astraea Turbo Snails
4x Baby Turbo Snails ( baby is around as small as the hole of a 5 centavo coin)

Supplements:
2.5ml Kent Essential Elements per week (Not dosing 2.5ml in 1 landing and have no test kits to measure those elements).
1 Drop of Kent Iodide per day. (Drop is from the needle of the syringe not from the end of syringe kaya mas maliit yung droplets na lumalabas. Doing it 1 drop kasi wala naman ako pang test ng iodide ko. :D
5 Gallon water change every week.

Planning to add more rocks, mushrooms, zoas and a SUB SUMP kung saan from 11am - 4:30pm nakadirect sunlight siya kasi during those times, hindi tumatama yung sunlight sa aquarium ko so balak ko sana dun siya tumama sa external sub sump with macro algae?

I'm buying my water from Sir Eddy Sy sa Del Monte and I'm not that sure kung ano yung saltwater niya. Saltmix or natural. Anyway, so far maganda naman quality ng water niya pero hindi ko pa natetest yung Mg and phosphate kasi wala akong pangtest nun. others are in good levels.

Bleached red mushroom....waiting for it to regain its color under the new location.

Blue Violet mushrooms and zoas bought last March 15, 2013 at cartimar

Thanks Sir!
oo nga sana hindi uminit yung tubig ko...anyway,binutasan ko ng masmalaki yung sa pasukan ng tubig tapos naglagay ako mesh dun sa propeler ng pump para mag labas ng smaller bubbles. :D make sure may hangin papasok sa pump mo bago ito pumunta sa skimmer kasi dun islice ng mesh yung bubbles into smaller bubbles.

If i have time, ill be picturing my skimmer for you. meron rin ata dito sa forums pano imodify kaso new lang ako so hindi ko pa nachecheck :D

before ko imodify yung skimmer ko, puro tubig lang nakukuha niya. Hindi umiitim yung nasa collecting cup. papalitan ko na sana pero sabi ko sa sarili ko kung bibili ako bago wala na ako gagawin dun so nagcheck ako kung may marunong magpalakas nun then triny ko gayahin and it worked! in a day may mga almost half to 1 inch of dark color nakukuha dun sa collecting cup.

This is what i did pero yung pump ko may pang hangin na sa baba, wala na ako minodify sa pump ko. hindi ko alam anong pump un pero ill take a pic pag uwi ko para makita mo.

Update March 27, 2013
____________________________
Bought new Frogspawn and Powder Brown Tang from Cartimar

Yung Powder Brown Tang may kunting sugat sa skin + Ich when I bought it at yan na yung pinaka good condition sa buong cartimar that time. (in my eyes)

I know my aquarium is too small for it pero kahit patayin niya yung zebra damsel okay lang kasi ayaw ko na un. D ko lang mahuli! anyway, here's the pic of my powder brown tang with ICH!
Acclimated it for about 1hour and 30 minutes before adding it kahit may white spots because I know my fish are in good condition and wont get ich from it. :))

Update March 30, 2013
____________________________
Yesterday it has so many ich.. same as the picture above but I gave it some nori and slept. Today, saw this miracle! Powder Brown Tang's Ich has lessen to around 98%

Nag water change ako kanina then prang nakita ko nag lalabas siya ng white substance na prang smoke tapos nag stop then pag labas ko ng mga 11pm (after 5 hours)ang cloudy na ng tank then pag tingin ko sa hammer, naglalabas parin ng white substance na parang smoke. Bakit kaya?

I think the WHITE SMOKE thing signals that the Cardinals have Voted a new Pope! Or maybe your Hammer is Addicted to Methamphetamine HydroChloride because of the White Smoke! Hahaha! :mrgreen: :twisted: :lol:

Seriously, the White Smoke you saw was actually not a Smoke but Slime from the Hammer's secretion. It's dying! Better remove it from your tank before it clouds even further & destabilizes the water conditions of your tank.

This is pure interweb gold! :lol:

@aaron I agree with aquareef. It's either releasing gametes (spawning) or expelling water and zooxanthellae (dying). I'm also betting on the latter.

Anyway, putting it in an isolation tank is a good idea. If the polyps/tentacles look fine and the coral does not show any signs of necrosis or die-off then luck is on your side. :)

In any case, WC would be a great too.
Cheers,
Marty

Okay, after 2 days of releasing this white like smoke. Frogspawn died! good thing I removed it immediately and water parameters are in good condition. Thank you for the advice!

Calcium chloride. But like any other supplements, do not dose what you cannot measure. Baka magkaproblema ka lang. :)

pwede bang magkakasama or malapit sa isa't-isa ang mga chalice? o depende rin? i've read na semi-aggressive sila and may sting other corals. eh pano kung sila sila rin ang magkakatabi?

Hindi lang semi-aggressive, aggressive talaga sila. Makikita mo pag gabi kung gano kahaba yung sweeper tentacles nila. 4 inches ang pinakamahaba kong nakita so far. Dapat malayo sila sa ibang corals. One time nalaglag yung isa kong chalice sa bubble coral ko, sunog yung bubble, almost to the point of oblivion, but managed to recover completely in a month.

Kung sila-sila lang oks lang. I keep all my chalices in one area of my tank, wala namang problema, kahit nagco-contact pa. :mrgreen:

Base lang lahat yan sa experience ko. Hope this helps. :D :D :mrgreen:

Thank you sir calvin. I bought new chalice kasi kahapon at nilagay ko lang sa tabi medyo malayo sa ibang corals. kahit ba sa mushroom at brains mamamatay pag tinamaan ng tentacles niya?

Yup, they most definitely would, lalo na't peaceful yung mga corals na yun. Hayaan mo lang siya sa pwesto niya na yun. Masyadong risky kasi for most corals na itabi sa chalice. :mrgreen:
