starting a predator tank

Recommended Posts


Because of the popularity of my 29g reef tank in my class I want to set up a predator tank. I have a 50g truvu tank, pump, and lights. I'm wanting to see if anyone could donate the following:


-hob skimmer (tank is sitting on a large metal cabinet)

or a standard skimmer/sump (i just need to make a stand)




-lion fish


-any cool non-reef safe inverts/fish/ect

Michael 7979 was able to get donations from Marineland.


I have a brand new Marineland skimmer rated for a 100 gallon tank. I also have a Marineland submersible pump at 475 gph. I also have a tunze power head donated by Spectra a while back. I will get them to Mr. S at some point and he can get them to you.

The predator tank is going great. Last month I added a lion fish and we named him Mufasa (from the Lion King movie.) I hand feed it silversides and it's getting fat. I also have a lime green wrasse in the tank. They are getting along great except he tries to grab the silverside out of Mufasa's mouth. Here are a couple of pics.
