Good morning, everyone!

Just wanted to post some pics of my new 5g i set up yesterday. nothing too fancy by any means, but something fun when im not messing with my 30g. here are a few pics...

As you can see, im currently using a "very"small filter/lighting set up from a 1g. But ofcourse that will all be upgraded this weekend which is next paycheck.. ;)

I think im going to go with the Current Orbit system with 2x18w for a total of 7.2 wpg.

Let me know what you guys think!

I like the scaping. Great clam too, but do you think that is enough light for it?


I'm about to set up another tank, for no good reason other than that it's exam time.

The tank does look nice. Be sure to post pictures when you put some frags in it.

Cheers,

How do you like the flow of the 90? i had the same one in my 5 but had alot of stuff settling on the sand so upgraded to a 200.
not much difference in size but flow was better.

Looking good so far! nice canopy too!
