Apogon Reef: Tank has Been Delivered!
After months of planning, the new tank has been delivered in my new apartment! I will give a short introduction of the idea behind this tank.
The new tank -Apogon Reef- will be Apogon dominated. That means +75 Apogon, several species.
Not too many, large Acropora will provide shelter for the very high flow (2x 6301 and Tunze Wavebox).
The Apogons (and the corals indirectly) will be fed from dusk till dawn, many automated feedings in small amounts, to mimic their natural feeding pattern.
A BB setup allows me to use high flow and heavy feeding.
60 Apogon Leptacanthus
20 Apogon margaritophorus
1 Pseudocheilinus hexataenia
1 Salarias Fasciatus
1 Acanthurus Triostegus
Some other fish may be added later on. For example some Wrasse species.
Info about the tank and equipment:
The dimensions of the tank are: 43″ x 34″ x 22″ high. The tank alone, without sump, is 135 Gallon. There is an external overflow on the right side, so the tank can sit flush to the back wall. All edges are polished.
