Yes! 12 gallons of nano scratches.
Decided to use my old trusty 12 gallon nano cube for my office reef fix!
Lets see how far the plan of a low maintenance office reef tank takes us...

Tank looks great.

Good example of the change in algae development during a cycle.

Very cute reefkeeper. :lol:

Tank updates :
Got a CUC from reefcleaners.org.
This is the first time I have ordered "live" stuff online and I couldn't have been more happier with the order. John at reefcleaners.org is a great guy.Highly recommended
I just got various snails for CUC.
Now after a week or so of the CUC being in the tank,hair algae looks under control

My maroon clown is showing signs of some infection.
Looking skinny and not swimming much.Still eats well though.
Definitely not ick probably brooklynella or some sort of fungal infection.
