This last pic is the best pic ive ever taken of my pico and a old fox coral i no longer have, the white fox coral really stood out with my clown goby! And believe it or not all my pics are taken using my iphone 4
-Update, the perc clownfish has been transferred out of the pico and into my nano.
Hello everyone, I've been a long time lurker of this forum and have read and learned so many things from all of you! ( all pics in this thread are from my iphone until i get a dslr i hope someday soon)
I have just recently started a pico as I'm shutting down my 30 gallon and wish to only keep the one small tank, I've had my 30 gallon for about a year and I know a very small bit about saltwater reef tanks but I am still very new to this and will be asking quite a bit of things in the near future!
So what I have right now is a 4.4 gallon glass tank that is an all in one design it's a home made one but is quite Nice. It has a small top overflow and 2 chambers in the back, the first one has live rock rubble in the bottom and cheato ontop of it and I put some filter floss ontop of the cheat for now...bad idea? I don't know I this is proper or not yet as I know cheato needs light, opinions?
The second chamber is just my hydor poco return pump and I can put a small heater in here if I need to as well, I want to do an auto top off on this tank and get led lights which I will ask your opinions of right away.
I will post pics tonight of my setup.
What I've done so far:
1.5 inch live sandbed from a friends sump.
About 4lbs of a single super nice live rock piece!
Thin glass top, a 50/50 CF 20 watt light and home made fixture, I also have a Coralife 9" mini twin bulb CF fixture but it has the fresh water bulbs and I need to order the 10k and actinic ones still so I'm using the 50/50 for now, however I want to get an led fixture and I'm having trouble deciding which one to get, I don't want a par 38 screw in bulb kind.
Aquaray 1000hd reef white with controller.
Aqua illuminations nano sol (built in full dimming control)
Evils new picolamp 12.3 unibody light with full dimming option.
***ENDED UP DOING A DIY LED FIXTURE***
What light do you recommend to use and why?( FYI money don't matter for my lighting)
