COMMENTS

hello mate, thanks for the interest. i'm a little peaved with the jealousy on this site, someone rated my puffer a '0'? everyday my ratings go down on my tank too....whats with that? anyhoo.....valentini puffer is probably the most chilled out of puffers, the only 'problem ' that it try to disarm my urchins to eat them. its not too much of a problem and it keeps the urchins in check lol the tank.... 60x30x24 top tank and 48x18x18 sump. the returns from the sump are 2x 3500 liters. the turbo shorty aqua medic skimmer is ran by another 3500. sump contains 80 lbs of aragonite live (wet) sand and a few kilos of live rock. it has a separate nursing tank built in with own skimmer and internal pumps, rock/sand. the top tank is 15mm glass and has around 200 - 250 lbs of aragonite live (wet) sand and 180 - 220 lbs of live rock. hidden in the rock are 2x 10,000 liters per hour power heads, 4x 5,000 lph power heads an 4x 1,000 lph. central weir descending into a false sand bed, one down pipe straight into the 1st stage of the sump and the other down pipe is gravity feeding the skimmer . if you haven't already...go to youtube and search for bertie411, the video can show so much more than i can explain, ( dont forget to leave a comment lol ) but once again, thanks for the posotive communication :) fish avatar
