This is a discussion on 5 Gallon Pico Reef (SPS) within the Tank Journals forums, part of the Aquarium Related Chat category; Just started this guy up, so far so good, SPS not dying on me. Needs moar sps!!! Thinking a pistol ...
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
RSM 130- saltwater tank
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:

nice acros! can't wait to see the school of Nemos and Tangs, Clown Trigger with Bruce
what (LED) Light fixture are you using?
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
Looks good you should try some t5 there awsome for sps need an update btw
Tanks and stuff
