I have 2 goals for this tank:
1.) To create a a beautiful, lush Pico Reef showcasing Soft Corals, Macroalgaes, and a few small but unique livestock items.
I will be stocking mostly with Soft Corals and Macroalgaes to show that a beautiful Reef can be created without using expensive, high-end corals.
Since the size of this tank limits livestock options, I will be trying to add a few unique inverts to keep it interesting.
2.) To explore Leng Sy's Ecosystem method of filtration.
This is something I have been interested in and wanted to try for a while now.
Put simply, this method utilizes barebottom tanks and an attached refugium with a mud-bottom and macroalgae, no skimmers, and no chemical filtration to achieve a very healthy and diverse Reef Tank with prolific microfauna and filter feeders.
