I just got a green clown goby. my LFS just received about 20 of them. I was going to wait and add him later, but I decided to get it now since they're small.

Pictures will be added once I get some.

Nice little tank! I recently got the itch to start another pico tank, but that's not going to happen now... maybe once I get my generator!

Goniopora (Flowerpot Coral). Can be difficult to keep, especially in a small tank. Nice coloring though.

I agree with Evil... those are very hard to keep. They work best in large and some-what dirty systems since they have been know to live more on waste/detris. I tried to keep one in my 15g nano and it lasted about 2 months.. Good luck

I had a frogspawn in my picotope and you can only have about two heads in there or it is too much LOL. But I really liked it in mine and if you put it in the middle sand area it would make a nice center piece. I've since moved it to my frag tank for now. I've got mushrooms, zoa's, rics, an acan, and a digitata. You might try a Monti Digitata as mine is doing well in there. Tanks looks great!!. OOOO Almost forgot. Get some Sexy shrimp. I've got 3 in mine and they are sooo awesome in a small tank. they don't get lost and are very busy all day long.

Did you know that xenia and zoas get into chemical warfare? Xenia will never thrive if zoas are present. Mind you that isn't necessarily a bad thing :P

But nice little tank :)

Everytime I see you type "FAIL" I hear "waaaaaah"


Welcome to the internet, chose either this padded helmet, or box of tissues.

No matter what forum you post on, there is some smart-ass lurking in the shadows feeding on random people.

Nice to meet you.

Yes Sexy Shrimp is definately on my list. I want to get my tank stocked decently before I add the sexiness.

Yeah, New List

1 head of frogspawn
Rics
candy canes

maybe some more zoa and different cloves.

I'm really not into mushrooms, but maybe after i'm satisfied and I have some spare room, some stripped shrooms.

thanks for your suggestions!

good! I don't want my xenia growing like weeds! but they are still growing right now, I've found a lot of tiny xenia popping up all over the frag it came on. Will it prevent my zoas from thriving?

My zoas and xenia were always unhappy when I had them both in my tank (24g). My xenia grew like wildfire until I started adding zoas and on the other side as soon as I got rid of my xenia my zoas exploded. They didn't kill each other just inhibited each others growth...

That's weird... I have both in my tank, and get amazing growth out of both?

Yes, no good for your tank. Send the Goniopora to me. Now. But leave the glowstick inside it.

PM me for my address. And you'll pick up the shipping.

Saw these for the first time at my lfs, $50 and I did not look at what light it was. This I could place in my office np. This great set up makes me want to do it and the lfs has enough tonga left...
