There is a lot of exeptions on depending on type of tank, ammount of sand, what your inhabitants, etc. It also depends on what equipments you get.
How deep is the sand? The skimmer will need to be heavy duty for a yellow in a 30 gal as they are better suited in a 75. Also what type of coral? SPS, LPS, sofites, photosynthetic, or non-photosynthetic?Ok, lets say a 30gal aquarium with a sand bottom, and with plenty of live rocks and corals. Inhibitants are your typical sea creatures, The red shrimp, a few clown fish, and a Yellow tang. With a good protein skimmer, with a high powered filter system and two power heads. What would you do to go about cleaning it? *This is just an example*
What I do is the night before the water change, mix RO/DI water with salt using powerheads (I mix mine using 2 K2 in a 5g bucket) and makesure the salinity is good. Let it run overnight and change the water before the lights turn on.Lol thank you ATP, sorry I was speaking out of my head I wanted to know about them thinking about getting one but not with that stocking lol. How do you go about replacing the water and adding salt? I know that the salt would be removed with the water but do you add more to the new water or wait a few times then add more salt?
Thinking about crossing over?I know this is going to sound silly but I really wanted to know. How do you clean a salt water aquarium. From changing the water to vaccuming the sand to filling it back up. Can someone explain to me the ins and outs of salt water tank cleaning please? Thanks!!
