Can you use the half moon for salt water

What additonal equiptment do you need for salt water tank in half moon. Is the whisper filtration good enough for salt water.
Asked by: dem719
Yes, you can. Type of filtration would be dependent upon what type of saltwater tank you wish to set up and which size of the half moon tanks you are enquiring about....but yes, the Whisper filters can be used for saltwater. You would want to change your filter media frequently, and clean the filter system monthly. You will need a good quality light if you wish to have live rock or corals, such as the 18-24" Reef Capable light. You would also want the Seaclone 100 Skimmer or something similar. BREX

Clear plastic canopy with holder for LED Light for 30 gallon Half Moon

I need to replace the cover,, actually I need a new cover cut down from front to 10 inches wide to support a twenty inch T5 dual lighting strip for a salt water tank. Can I buy this? The original one I tried to cut with a scolding knife, and a hack saw, that crashed and burned, you need a table saw with the right kind of blade. If you can not cut a new cover, can you sell or send me a replacement part, the light already fell in the tank, I caught it before it went under. I have two thirty inch fixtures, dual and quad T5 lighting, I just don't need that much light, heat, energy.

plants

can this lighting support live plants and what type if they do i have the half moon 30 gal marineland with a penguin 200
Asked by: snuffygr
No, not really. It is only 5900 Kelvin, plants require 6500 Kelvin. It will not be bright enough even for low light plants. You would want a minimum of a Double Bright LED for low light plants, and the Aquatic Plant Lighting System if you intend to become very involved in plants. BREX

I have the 30 gallon and want to add coral. What lights will work and allow me to have a reef tank. My preference would be led.

Asked by: Coral
Coral, Based on the half moon shaped tank that you have, it is possible to house corals but it may be a bit tricky. We do carry LED lighting systems which provide the correct color balance for reef tanks. This specific lighting system is our Reef Capable LED lighting system. The dimensions on your 30 gallon Half Moon Aquarium are 26"L x 14"W x 28" H. Due to the curvature of your tank, you wll either need to suspend the LED light above your tank or place the shortest Reef Capable LED light on the canopy itself as the bracketed, extendable legs are meant for angular aquariums. The second issue you may encounter has to do with the depth of your aquarium. As with other light systems, the potential light energy reaching your corals diminishes as the depth increases. At 24" of depth, the PAR/LUX decreases by about half. ML2

In the 10 gallon version, can I replace the default whisper filter with a Penguin Bio-wheel 100 later?

Also, can I buy another LED light that will allow me to grow some plants and that has the blue LEDs?
Asked by: Fishies
Yes, the Penguin 100 will fit within that tank just fine. The only LED light rated for live plants is the Aquatic Plant Lighting System and the HIdden Led light. The smallest one we make in the plant light is 18" and should fit. You would need to remove the legs, probably, to make it work properly. Just lay it flat on the lid to the tank. The Hidden LED, 17" is the right length, but is meant to be tucked under frames, which you do not have. If you choose to do only lowlight plants like anubias, cryptocoryne, java fern, etc, you could also get by with the Double Bright 18" LED. I used one for two years on my tank, with such plants, and they did extremely well. However, it will NOT grow anything of moderate to high light need. BREX

Why does the light that came with my 10 gal half moon not have the blue led's

I recently bought a 10 gallon half moon aquarium from Petsmart, to my surprise the led light only appears to be single mode white light. One of the reasons I bought it was for the blue light effect.
Asked by: ChrisCa
That particular style tank does not offer the blue effect. As stated on the packaging it only comes with the white LED lights. I'm not sure why they chose to not offer the blue with it. BREX

Any plans on creating a better canopy for the 30 gallon half moon aquarium?

It is very hard to clean the tank because every time you go to remove the hood, first you lose the light, second water from the hood gets all over the floor, and third adding new fish is a pain for the same reasons as 1 and 2.

Emperor 280 and 30 gallon Half Moon

Is there a replacement cover for the 30 gallon half moon that will accomodate the Emperor 280? The filter slot on the cover that came with mine is too small. I bought this filter based on a previous question and I would not like to go through the returns process. Are there other solutions to for this?
Asked by: Pralix
I had problem with original filter leaking. I did not like the idea of it hanging off the back, either. Bought the large Fluval submersible filter and installed at lower third. This has a very tall area of circulation and is adjustable for flow. It was a little more expensive but have had great success with it. There is nothing to leak. You can place it behind a tall plant. You can draw water from the lower areas by placing it low in tank. The only drawback was the opening for the original filter. Used a flat plastic piece to cover that and works well with no splashes or evaporation. It just lays over the opening and is stable. The light just lays there so this is similar to that situation. This also allows the tank to go very close to the wall with enough room for tubes and cords.

I want to purchase the 30 Gallon Half Moon w/LED tank. Can you give me filter suggestions that will fit within the space on the canopy.

Need product suggestions for the 30 Gallon Half Moon LED Light Tank since it does not come as a complete kit. Filter and Heater suggestions.
Asked by: Crystal
The suggested filter had a leak. I went with a submersible and placed in lower third of tank to get good circulation. That leaves opening which I used a plastic piece from another aquarium to cover. It lays on top like the light and keeps evaporation down. Anything flat and plastic would probably work. This also allows the unit to sit way closer to the wall.
