Hey guys,

Question, I had a spare Marine System 6, sand, and plenty of rock lying around. Curious to know what can I put in this aquarium if it's FOWLR? Should I buy another pump for more flow or does it not matter?

Are you talking about the Eclipse 6g tank with everything built into the hood?
If so, IMO I would just hang onto it to use as a QT tank if you don't already have one! Take the bio wheel and float it in your current sump and it will always be loaded with bacteria and ready to use whenever you need to QT a new or sick fish.
As a FOWLR you would only be able to put 1 or 2 super tiny sized fish in it...so it wouldn't make much of a display tank.

Yea the eclipse is the 6g with everything built into the hood. Hmmm... well I saw those pico tanks at Fishstores and was like WOW that's pretty awesome 1 seahorse.

Anyway, I just wanted to keep 1 fish in this tank anyway (Firefish Goby) and a Porcelain Crab. I also was going to use it for excess macroalgae growth that will grow from my Biocube, in case some fellow reefers need it.

I don't have a sump... . But I wanted to basically use this tank as a decoration for my house. Here is a current pic.

Going to put heater and some Live Sand in today to get the thing moving.

Do I have to mod in BLUE LED's? This thing only has the CFL.
