TPF's 50g Reef Edutope
Well I've been collecting stuff for this for a while now and its finally coming to life! This is a 50 gallon (36"x13"x24") Tenecor Acrylic AIO. The display area is quite narrow, only about 10" wide but it'll do.
This tank is setup to educate kids both about corals and reef ecosystems, but also about reef conservation (hopefully I can do some fragging). This tank will be tied directly with the curriculum and will be invaluable in teaching kids about reefs.
Stocking for this tank was chosen based on coloration, space occupied in the water column, temperament, hardiness, activity level, and mostly interesting behaviors.
Stocking will be as follows:
1 Sleeper Banded Goby
1 Longnose Hawkfish (I know its a risk)
1 (small, sorry guys) Yellow Tang
*perhaps* a pair of clowns if I can get them hosting
Assorted "tree" softies (sinularia, kenya tree etc)
Some other donated stuffs
Inverts are pending, I'm thinking a cleaner shrimp and your basic run-of-the-mill CUC
I'll try to get pics up later, if you'd like to donate fish/coral just post below!
