Postby krishhaldermail.com » Sat Jun 27, 2015 5:51 am

Thank you for all of your help from viewtopic.php?f=20&t=5825
At last fulfilling my childhood dream for marine. :D Set is ready ,all set to go. Though it will not be a high tech one.
Got red sea salt 10 kg.
Got rock 15 kg (cured) from one of the hobbyist.
hydrometer, test kit
Already have top filter (as it will be sumpless what I mentioned in earlier topic) & wave maker.
Got T8 actinic 18000k, T8 aquarium light white,
waiting for the live sand to arrive :-? Hope it will reach by tomorrow.
Also added beneficial bacteria to make the cycling process faster, please suggest how soon I can add some clean up crews?

seems to me like sponges.
You introduced a filter feeder in your tank, how do you plan to feed it?

the fan worm,/tube worm that you bought is a filter feeder. Sponges like them will eventually be pests. Your tank is literally brand new and you already bought a creature that eats extra organic matter/planktons which are present in the water column. It won't die off soon, but it will not grow too. Unless you target feed it with coral food.

If you had bought this creature after 6-8 months, then it wouldn't have been any problem at all as the tank would have been matured enough.
