hey all,

Ive got a 4 footer free and im goin to set it up for calvus.

I will be lookin at using external canisters maybe 2 medium sizes rather than 1 large.

I have heaps of coral rocks for buffering my malawi tanks around PH 8,

but for a tang tank what should i use to buffer the PH higher?

Any help would be much appreciated.

cheers Brett :thumb

hey guys

what size tanks have you got runing for a colony.also what type of filtation?

im quite interested in these little buggers me self.

cheers boydie

I had a colony of 5 (2m, 3f) in a 3x2x2. A standard 4ft would have been ok, or a trio in a standard 3ft or pair in a 2ft. These are just my guesses on what would be appropriate. Type of filter will depend on tank size & number of fish. No harm in overfiltering, generally all Tangs like clean water and small but frequent water changes.

cheers

A 2ft sump. A bit of an overkill on a 3x2, a decent canister would have done the job. But i have never regretted it, it's almost maintenance-free.
