Tada.. here is my new 60litre tank set up.
@tzg see the rocks that I've gotten from you on the right :sidesmile: .
Unfortunately the big lava on the left only sinks sideways. Gonna get some weights and attached to the bottom to make it sit upright.

=Salinity is at 1.012
=Water is slightly cloudy, hopefully it get clearer tomorrow.

-Any advice how long should i wait to do the water test?
-12hours of light during day time and that is sufficient?

Kindly enlighten me on any other advices :sidesmile:

This looks brilliant, lovely rocks too... i have always preferred the look of ocean rocks in tanks myself. If you have loads of test solution then why not test a couple of times a week and make a chart? Just be sure if you use a liquid test kit you don't put the test tubes in the tank directly to collect water for use and contaminate your tank.. get a syringe and pull your water out to test. :smile:

Yeah I'm enjoying the new tank process too.

@opae ula related I'm not very sure what plants is good to have in there. Any suggestion?

@odin I definitely hope i can see there out on the dark substrate. :sidesmile:

Really no plamts you can use other than the brakish macroalgea which to me is just thicker hair algae. I have it nbut noth that fond of it.I personally want to keep my tank bare and simple. Not the ones I have but the next one I build. Really no plants so as I've said in the past. Keep it simple and the Opae Ula will thrive.
