You should add some mojanos. They're the most beautiful pests imo. Cool concept.

The first time I visited my LFS I saw a beautiful mojano on some LR and asked if I could buy it not knowing what it was. The guy said, "This? It's a stupid pest, you dont want it" and threw it away. In retrospect he was a stupid LFS employee, it was better looking than a lot of corals out there :tears:

Awesome concept for a tank! Maintenance should be easy :) What exactly do you have goin on the the sump?

are you referring to the filter section in the back of the tank as the sump? there is no larger tank below it. but i have some filter floss, carbon, filter pellets, the heater (50 watt), and the hagen 301 pump.

i've had to top off the tank almost everyday so far, i need to get a cover for it. i also spot feed the two larger anemones with blood worms occasionally.

I saw this and was like "Hey, that's my idea!". Then I read the first sentence haha :lol:

Anyway, looks great! If you'd like, I can take a walk down the dock and pull off some blood red aiptasia for you (the ones I have in my tank). They're a blast! Glad to see someone else diving into the world of pest anemones!

PS: Following along :)

Reef tanks are like race cars - they're flashy, expensive, and the faster you go the harder you crash.
