Hi, and welcome to the reef section of the forum.
I am glad to see that we have foreign reefers in Bulgaria.
Good luck with the start and waiting for the pics.

Note:
Regarding the Goby they are jumpers and you should have cover net or some top for sure, I have already lost one  :-( 
If you want to have Xenia coral, also would like to mention that its growing very fast and will occupy the whole tank... :-[
regards...

Thank you :) and thank you for advises also. Yea for the Goby, I will probably need to make some kind of lid or net still thinking. Maybe glass or Plexiglass Lid will be a better option as it will help for water evaporation as well. Maybe in a feature, I can get some ATO system or do it my self but since then, I can have issues with evaporation.

About Xenia, thats why wrote "maybe" :) still not sure but doing researches for corals, want something which is hardy and beatiful.

Also options are a bit limited in BG. I should visit some more Aquarium shops to see what corals are avaliable.

thank you.

Thank you, I know the site but since now had no chance to purchase something from them, still I have time as cycling the tank will take at least 2-3 weeks. I will be able to see all shops here in Sofia and if I can not find what I am looking, I will check German and Uk sites.

Is there a salt which you can advise? Normally on other forums and sites they are advising Red Sea Coral Pro and Instant ocean Reef Crystals. what salt you guys using ?

Hi,

regarding the salt, in the beginning I used RS coral pro, the black basket, but now I have changed it to RS blue one, since with the coral pro the KH is to high for me and didn't have a lot of corals growing. I dont a lot of corals, but we will see, I decided to try it, I also red a lot of good opinions for Instant ocean, could try this one also  :-[.
In Sofia I can suggest to check the shops like: Exoticland, Akvarium.bg, where you can find a lot of good goods, sorry if I am making advertise.... :whistle:

Hey,

let's see, then I can go with Instant ocean and share my experience after that with you if you think also to get it. I also saw many good comments for it, just in EU difficult to find Instant ocean itself, they are in EU market with a different name called "Aquarium System" Link (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01LXNLQ2K/ref=twister_B06XRGN75F?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1). About stores :-D I am living closed by Mladost Akravium BG and checking their store weekly basis :). The other one never been but should see it also.

what fishes and corals having right now?

I love Instant ocean, cos it is cheap, synthetic. For 5 lv-kg, it is top ! But in 40 litres ,there is ok to buy RS Coral pro and add only salt in the tank forever. If I have 40 litres tank I will buy RS Coral Pro.
Welcome to the forum!!!

Hey thank you :) just i am thinking to buy one big bucket salt to have it for a long time as for 20lt water they are recommending 640-650 gram salt. So point is to get one time but good one.

I am from Sweden

Getting more and more exited when i see huge reef community. :)

Hah, vi alla  kan tala  svenska i Bulgaria :) (Nej, nej, jag skojar)
Vi kan tala till varandra och andra människor kan inte förstå, det är toppen, oj oj!  :-D
Jag kan hjälpa med havet salt , jag har arton kilon Instant Ocean och vet en man som sälja IO i Bg, men här i Bulgaria RS är bättre att ha än Instant ocean när vi talar för 40 l akvarium.

Det är bra att ha havetakvarium här i Bg , allt är mycket billigare än i Sverige, men jag tror att du borde köpa "Innovative Marine" akvarium från Norge eller Sverige . Innovative marine Akvarium Nuvo nano 16 t.ex.(eller 8 eller 4 gal och så vidare) och skimmer (Ghostskim t.ex.)är bättre än Eheim! Hur bra som helst!Det (IM) är dyrt , tyvärr. Men jaf är besviken från marine eheim varor.
Kanske det  inte är okej att du köper en stor påse med salt. Du borde ha färsk salt -det är bättre att köpa två eller tre påsar av 4 eller 5 kilon ,än en påse av tjugo kilon t.ex.

Jag har en tjejkompis från ReefCentral.com -Åsa(hon är svensk också givetvis) från Kiruna (ÅsaKr. är hennes nicknamn i RC). Hon är jättebra på ekologi och med akvarium och jag kan presentera dig till henne, så hon kan hjälpa dig mycket.

Vad gör du här i Bulgaria?

Aqua Forest is cheaper than IO (and not bad at all ) , but for said tank volume ,the salt price is unimportant IMO. Also , for your case ,it will be wiser to buy small packages (5kg) frequently ,than big ones

Du måste ta RODI sistem, men du kan börja med vatten från LIDL t.ex. På flaskan där skriver i bulgariska "Вода, добита по метода на обратната осмоза". Det är okej för akvarium och man kan använda det .

Welcome in БАЕ remediless.

@trex700e ,за английският съм съгласен, човекът е достатъчно културен и любезен да използва по-интернационален език и по-лесен за превод с гугъл преводача език, не мисля че има нужда да се пише на шведски в общия форум, разбрахме че го владееш, но мисля, че не е колегиално спрямо другите членове на форума да се води обща дискусия на този език. В крайна сметка затова има възможност за лични съобщения.

Hi all,

Quick update :) Finally filled the aquarium with RO/DI water and start cycling. Right now, I am ghost feeding aquarium and addition to that using Seachem Stability.

Led Light is on the way coming.

03/05/2018

Salinity is 1.025
Temp is 25 C
Ammonia is 0.01

after seeing an increase in Ammonia, I will start checking Nitrite and Nitrate as well.

Here is the first picture, water was cloudy but from yesterday clear enough to see in it;

(https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/640x600q90/922/hlT2yx.jpg)

My next purchase will be Tidal 55. Still, there is no lid on the tank, I just put something to keep the water as much as in the tank but I will start doing some glass lid as it will help me for water evaporation.


Getting excited :)

BR.

Bought Salifert Ammonia test, I was using Seachem MultiTest Ammonia but as it is very difficult to use and taking more time to do test I decided to get Salifert. Also HIPARGERO LED 30 light is just received and I am very happy with it for now.

Hi all,

After today's test, observed that my Ammonia level is "0". Now Nitrite is reached to peak point of my test, which is 4 ppm. I will wait Nitrite level decrease to "0" then I will do 50% water change and add one more time Ammonia, to check if level will reach again to "0" in 24H. Water parameters from today;
