    Aqua 55G

    Hi to all.
    First I would like to compliment this site and all the effort you people put in it.
    It is great tool for someone new to the hobby like me.
    At first I was only reading and “stealing” all the knowledge and experience from here but I feel now is time to change that and to become active member of this community.

    My aquarium is rather low-tech using most of the equipment from my freshwater setups and lots of DIY since my resources are quite limited. My first aquarium set up 12 months ago was 20G where I did all my mistakes as beginner. After 6 months of “fun” with 20G I changed it to what I have now.

    55G main tank
    15G sump
    20G fuge(currently bare)
    DIY protein skimmer
    DIY Nilsen Kalk reactor
    18lb live rock
    15lp base rock
    25lb DIY rock (cement and crushed oyster shell)
    1 ˝ inch aragonite sand
    Light:
    2X NO 40W actinic
    4X NO 40W daylight (6500K)

    Livestock:
    1 yellow tail damsel
    1 green star polyp
    1 rock with poor looking zoo’s
    3 mushrooms
    Couple snails and hermit crabs

    Tank picture.
