Eh. Why not. A simple softy cube for the computer desk couldn't hurt.

My plan is to have just some xenia and maybe blue cloves with a maxi mini and perhaps a few mushrooms. That's it! I've already got a reef pico going...

  • Tank: Marina Cubus betta kit
  • Heater: Aqueon 10w Mini
  • Light: 5W RGB LED bulb w/ Boost LED clamp lamp
  • Filtration: TOM Aquarium Mini Internal Filter 45gph

Haha getting there. You'll be dissapointed I promise. It'll get better in a week or so.

Edit:
So the FTS is up...haha

I'm basically just throwing this together at the last minute to get involved in the contest.

you know the rules....no livestock until the first. and what really ticks me off is that you didn't even cycle the tank before adding it. you are one sick person..

Damn...you're right. It looks so happy in there though! You can't make me take it out now that the fish is all settled...

I actually ended up going with a small Tom's Mini Internal Filter. With the xenia in there, I figure thats all the filtration I'm going to need.

I just put him straight in there. Post-it fish are the hardiest fish around.

hahaha awesome to see you got it too. :D


Haha I couldnt help myself.

Happy to be apart of it! I appreciate your understanding in the fish matter...

Hah thanks man

I know right?! It should be a fun challenge.

I added some LR today and I think I've got a scape I'm happy with. I'll post some pictures tomorrow of it. I shouldnt have much of a cycle if any since I kept the LR in water the whole time. I also picked up a small frag of xenia which is standing by in my Mini S atm. I'll make sure the params are good over the next few days and then hopefully I can start adding de coralz!

If this tank turns out like your ada mini s then you got a big chance of winning!

I'm following for sure and even considering to change my build....

Thanks!

So here's the current scape with all the equipment. The bulb I ordered came faulty so they are shipping me another one. Hopefully it gets here by the end of the week.

Lmk what you think!

Atm all I have is my camera phone. Once I start adding coral I'll take some pictures with the DSLR.

Looks really nice man!

I gotta admit I ordered some acrylic for a 6" cube :)
I also got a pretty nice piece of rock, just not 100% sure it is safe in a reef though...

Ha I still have the tank itself but there's nothing in it. One day I might get it going again with the same concept but not for awhile.

 

I honestly forgot I made a thread for it. I think a month after setting it up I moved and took it down.
