Absolutely stunning tank, you make it look so effortless. Do you think saltwater tanks are achievable for a beginner or should I stick to fresh for now? Also how do you rate the difficulty of a tank like this vs a planted freshwater? Keep it up, dude!

I made a reef tank out of a 20 gallon "Show" tank 16.5 tall x 12 wide x 24 long. I actually put an under gravel filter on it run by two pumps that I aimed one across the back of the rock and the other at the front of the tank creating a vortex effect along with the 2 gallon filter I had hanging on the back with a protein skimmer and mechanical filtration, then chemical filtration if needed. I used 1/2 inch coral rock about 1 inch thick with a coral rock layer then after it ran for a month and cycled with four fish in it I put in a layer of live rock once I finished building my light hood with 3 ultralume 5000s and one actinic bulb. It was 1989 and no LEDs yet. I put a red light on for night observations, well worth it. I caught a big spiky worm at night almost as big as a centipede eating my corals. I would put baited with mashed shrimp in pantyhose pieces and the fire worms would get caught in it and I'd remove them in the morning, little beggars sting pretty bad if you handle them without gloves. I soon got rid of all of them judging from I stopped catching or seeing any. I had more Halimeda calcareous algae that I trimmed it back with the caulerpa grape algae. My tap water had a PH of almost 9 and was loaded with calcium and I used it to top my tank for evaporation. I had no nitrates and one turbo snail is all I needed for algae control. I changed 5 gallons a month just cause although I don't know if it needed it, except for micronutrients it probably didn't. I had a mandarin goby in there that got all its food from the rock and I fed the corals with pureed shrimp, clams. I had two clownfish who lived in my big coral that lasted forever. I had to move cross country and sold the tank with everything Luckily it is a lot easier moving twenty gallons in buckets, but the guy essentially got a finished and cycled tank for $200. We only took two hours to move it as he showed up with two buckets to go with my two buckets.

Have you ever put together a monthly maintenance budget for a tank like this? I have a few nano freshwater tanks that are a few years old now and I'd love to try my hand at a 15 gallon shallow salt/reef tank, but the cost factor is intimidating.

Lord knows how I found this, but that's the beauty of AM-posts, I have a couple of fresh water aquascapes but now having seen this gorgeous tank its very tempting to watch some more and then do some serious research. I'd love to see this tank in a years time

That sucks that you can’t skim the surface of the tank because you have no filtration and also next time try cutting the plugs away from the tank so that prices don’t fall in

Hi buddy, I got so many questions after watching this 😂 why is there no filtration? Not needed? How do you maintain the water quality? Do you need to refresh? And what is the set up price of something like this. I really like it

@Danny's Aquariums you need a surface skimmer for sure, the oily surface is not good for everything.

You could put under gravel filters in & suck them out with a hose from time to time.
Danny's Aquariums
Danny's Aquariums 4 ամիս առաջ
Hi man! Haha I hope I can answer them for you. There’s no filtration on this tank because I do weekly water changes of about 10%, I believe this little ecosystem can do a great job balancing everything by itself. I can’t give you exact numbers on the set up price but I believe it’s around € 1000,- excluding corals. You’re Dutch, right? Send me a DM on Instagram so I can send you some links of things I used for the tank. Thank you! 😁😉
