32g Reef plans


Dimensions:
21x30x12 (h x l x w) 32g

Lighting:
2x55watt pc 1 antic and one 10k bulb. Plus 2x20watt no fluorescent bulbs. One Antic and one 10k. Approximately 150watts, which equals 4.7watts per gallon.

Inhabitants:
2 x False Percula (2 juveniles)
1-2 x Orange Fire Fish (if 2(A pair))
1 x Mandarin Goby (if there is a colony of pods)
2 x Coral Banded Shrimp (a mated pair)
10-15 x Various Snails (herbivores and Scavengers)

Refugium:
15g tank with 2x20 no fluorescent bulbs. One antic bulb and one 10k bulb, the lights will always be on. It will contain various species of calerpa and live rock to filter the tank. The refugium will contain the skimmer and the heater for the tank. Some mushroom corals might be introduced to the refugium so that I can farm them and introduce them into the main tank or sell them.

Corals:

Water changes/top off/overflow:
Water changes will be preformed weekly and a 20% water change will be done. The water will be prepared in a 7.5g tank, which will have a heater and power head in it. An automatic top of system might be constructed using a float switch and a 5g tank. An over flow will be constructed by having a small 1
