SnowAddicts Salty Surprise
« on: May 13, 2017, 09:25:13 pm »
Evening all so in 10 days time my first marine tank turns up! I'm super excited.
It's only a small one for now, I'm building an extension towards the end of the year and once that's built I'll be buying a much larger tank.

Also a smaller tank breaks the Mrs back into fish keeping after the 7000L freshwater system.

So the tank:
TMC OPTI-WHITE MICROHABITAT MARINE 60 LITRES

Not the cheapest of small aquariums at £380 for just the tank but has everything I need to get me going, no doubt I'll change it all around and upgrade the lighting etc shortly after setting it up.

Stocking will be light, but those of you who know me know me know I'll not settle for the usual.
Ok so a pair of clowns, but they will be designer clowns! Picasso or snowflake.... if anyone has suggestion fire them at me!
A pistol shrimp/goby combo and that's it apart from a clean up crew.

Corals.... well I'm not sure just yet. There will be some but not 100% on what I want just yet.

So it's been nearly a year since I sold up the rays etc and here's to a new adventure.

Cheers
Joe

    Shiney times :) i'll be following as always :)
    Its funny you mention designer clowns, i was hanging around the lfs earlier picking up food and prime. And as per catch a conversation about people picking fish, so the guy at the lfs says about a few different types of clowns they have. Either way i cant remember the names, but apparently maroon coloured clowns are less common (and expensive!). Only one i can remember im sure was a lightning clown...don't quote me on that
    Either way looking forward to this :)

    Maroons are very territorial and can be very aggressive and can get to 6" and are quite common

    Thank you Ian, sleep is good at the minute she's been pretty good to be honest. Saying that a train could pass the foot of the bed and I'd not know.
