Hello. I've been planning on setting up another marine tank for a while. It will take a bit of time to get all the equipment to start running it. This is my plan:

Equipment

29 Gallon Standard Glass Tank ( 30" Long x 12" Wide x 18" High )
4x24w or 5x24w T5HO Light Fixture
Protein Skimmer - Either a CPR Bak Pak, Octopus, or Tunze InTank
2 Hydor Koralia Pumps
150 Watt Heater
Refractometer
Various Test Kits ( ph, Ammonia, NitrIte, NitrAte, Calcium, Alk, etc. )
30 or so pounds of live rock
1-2" sandbed
Auto Top Off System
Also need to buy another RO Unit

This is my current livestock list however it may change:

Fish

1xPossum Wrasse ( Wetmorella spp.)

1xYellow Watchman Goby ( Cryptocentrus cinctus )

1xChalk Bass ( Serranus tortugarum )


Inverts

1xSkunk Cleaner Shrimp ( Lysmata amboinensis )

Astrea snails ( Astraea tecta )

Nassarius Snails ( Nassarius sp. )

Cerith Snails ( Cerithium sp. )

When tank is established for 6 months to 1 year:

BubbleTip Anemone ( Entacmaea quadricolor )

Clam ( Tridacna sp. )


Coral

Soft:

Mushrooms ( Actinodiscus sp. ) & ( Ricordea yuma, florida )

Kenya Tree ( Capnella sp. )

Starburst Polyps ( Briareum sp. )

LPS:

Frogspawn ( Euphyllia paradivisa )

Candy Cane ( Caulastrea furcata )

SPS:

Acropora ( Acropora sp. )

Montipora (Montipora digitata )

Pocillopora ( Pocillopora sp. )

Montipora Cap ( Montipora capricornis )


So far all I have is the tank which I still need to paint the back. I will update when there are updates lol.

Any comments and/or questions are always welcome.

I look forward to hearing more about the tank as you go along: I am looking for ideas on re-stocking my own at the moment!

Update: Yesterday I picked up a can of spray paint, krylon Fusion to be exact. I will need to wait until its decent weather outside so it may take a day or two.

Also I just placed an order with PremiumAquatics which should arrive sometime next week. I purchased two Koralia pumps, refractometer and a heater.

Will post up some pics when I can.

Update: Received my PremiumAquatics order. Here is a picture I took just to give you an idea. The piece of furniture that the tank is on isn't the stand, either need to buy or make one. Also the light strip is just for the picture.

I like that! I have never seen an overflow box like that before so am quite interested as it doesn't require any modifications to the tank.. Still thinking on what to do with my little marine and might put a sump in when we finally get round to getting a stand for it.

Update: Last week I placed an order online for an Auto Top Off Unit, well it arrived yesterday morning. It will be placed in the sump. On my way home from work I stopped by a local fish store and purchased a 20g high, they were having a sale. I think it will work nicely as a sump.

This weekend I'm going to stop by Home Depot and pick up some supplies to build a stand. Also need to get acrylic and pvc to complete my sump/plumbing.

Here is a quick pic I took of the sump and ATO.
