I am planning to buy the 10 gallon half moon ,but I do not live in America what other items do you recommend that I buy before I leave the country?

Asked by: Lissy
This is hard for me to say, as some of the items you will need will not necessarily work in another country, such as the filter and heater. Also, some countries won't allow items in such as the fish food. However, what you want to start a tank would be: gravel, heater, filter, decorations such as plastic plants, a thermometer, food, water conditioner We would recommend a Whisper 10 filter, Tetramin tropical food, Aquasafe Plus from our products.

Is this tank glass or acrylic? I have seen ones in acrylic, which is what I want, but your web page says glass. Did you change production? This will make a huge difference.

where can I buy a half moon aquarium without the stand?

I can not use the stand because of a heat vent in the way and the stores refuse to sell them without the stand?
Asked by: 4Elliot
You would need to find a local fish store that will special order for you. Avoid the chains like Petsmart and Petco because they are unable to order something that their main office doesn't already carry. I see the 20 gallon size is on www.amazon.com. B-Rex

Is it poossible to remove the canopy completely?

Is there anyway to remove the canopy completely and have the lamps and everything else needed attached on the side of the glass? We would prefer having the aquarium open and have some reefs sticking out. Is that an option for this aquarium? Thanks.
Asked by: goldfish
You could do that, but you would need to buy the LED Aquarium Light by Tetra, and moisture would eventually destroy the light. And that particular light is not suitable for a live reef. You could hang the Reef Capable, but again, moisture would be an issue. BREX

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
