Just got a 3x2x2 tank what would be the recommended amount of live rock needed?
30 to 40 kilos mate depends on prefrence
Cheers, thought so just trying to watch the pennies
I think 1kg per 10 litres of water is recommended.
i have 30 k in mine mate 33x24x24
as above its normal sed 1kg per 10 litres
Will get 30kg and go from there
I think you will be fine with 30kg Rob
whatever i have left after mr.durkins took his 40kg is what youll need!
I have 35kg in my 3 footer
Best bet is to get 30kg then if you see a really nice shaped piece you could always add that at a later date
Do you still want those x2 RO taps, if so just txt/ring me, Martin gave you my mobile number
If your watching the pennies mate I have 7kg but needs recurring foc if it helps ya
If you dont mind mate and ill order you 2 more. I've just text you not sure if the numbers right tho, had it from ages ago
That would be great mate if you dont mind
Not at all mate pm your addy and I'll get it dropped off in the new year for you
I changed my number 3 months or so ago, I've PM'd you my new number
Cheers mate, ill give you a bell tomorrow when im out and about. Gotta drop a reactor off at the durks
how many reactors does 1 man need? lol
Lol a calcium reactor, im just delivery boy
I disagree with the suggested live rock kg per litre concept.
Some live rock is very dense, and so heavy. Other live rock is very porus so doesnt weigh much. (The latter provides it best environment for bacteria imo).
Aim to have your tank filled with approximately one quarter to one third by volume with rock. It's not an exact science so can be judged visually.
