    Default 5 Gallon Pico Reef (SPS)

    Just started this guy up, so far so good, SPS not dying on me. Needs moar sps!!!

    Thinking a pistol shrimp/goby pair for this one!

    Cycling


    New light, a Zetlight 72Watt, ZP2500. Much sharper colour and look than the T5 fixture I had before.





    Any ID for this one?

    nice start!! goby/pistol shrimp pair is so fun to watch.. I just hated them for constantly digging and borrowing corals to their cave. I lost a couple of coral because of them... just don't put any corals on sandbed I guess it will be ok as you mentioned SPS

    Speaking of Pistol Shrimp+Goby, I finally got some! Candy Cane pistol with a Hi Fin Goby. The Goby hung around the front sand area until I shooed him towards the rock. The pistol shrimp really chose a good spot to make his den! They are finally paired and eating so the worse is behind us. It funny I was explaining the pistol shrimp to my significant other and at that exact moment a hermie decided to investigate the den, some click clicking occurred

    Now the tank needs more SPS

    Heres the video:

    Planning on it! And a yellow tang, 6 nemos, and a Bruce too!

    Speaking of acros, got some SPS from a group buy, now its a waiting game to see if they'll do well but they look good so far!

    Tank is filling in nicely, the Bonsai and the Acro are not too happy about the lighting. Both still alive, Bonsai looks like it is on its way out, but acro hanging in there. Got a bunch of other SPS and a new green Acan, everything is looking fairly stable right now. Getting some black stringy algae on the sand bed due to the flow...maybe another powerhead or some sand shifters are need

    lol Scott...I do have a 2ft four bulb T5 fixture...but I prefer LEDs. Its hit and miss for SPS though.

    I got a shipment of 10 florida rics from reefwars on black friday...they came cold and in rough shape, they might not all make it. Was going to wait until everything stabilized.

    But here you go
