Hi everyone,
This is my 12g Nano DX. She was setup in March of 2006. I've got about 14 lbs LR, i run a fresh chemi-pure every month, Fritz Phosphate Remover, lr rubble and chaeto in middle sump with custom LED light on back.
The inhabitants consist of various blue-legged hermits, 4 turbo snails, and various softies, LPS, and SPS. My lighting is a DIY 12 LED kit i got from my groomsmen as a wedding gift...not sure on the specs but the Par meter reads 150w output at 6" depth.

My mods have been changing the stock pump out with an MJ-900 and a Hydor Flo, adding a Koralia Nano and a Eheim Jager 50 watt heater (and the lighting of course).

MY MOST CURRENT FTS WILL GO HERE:

Latest update -- doing well and seemingly stable. Water changes are 30% once-a-month now. Some acro's are exploding, some are growing algae -- strange.

Frog and Torch are a good size too. Even though in a 12 gallon they look larger than they are probably.

This tank is sooo amazing. Really shows what you can do with a cube. Amazing tank and corals.

Looks like the brain quickly became the center piece. :D

by the looks of your current tank, I don't think that you will get reamed for anything. :P

Nice tank!

Wow those zoos I traded you look like they are doing great. The Solars look like they have just exploded in size and its neat to see something I had in my tank not too long ago in someone else's. I hope you're still happy with them, I'm certaintly happy with what I got from you.
