Well after selling the Fusion 20 and moving these guys and girls into a temporary home. I decided it was just not worth it.......so the guy I sold my 20 to had a 10 well it is now a RFA tank.....upgraded the pump to a tunze along with a IM spinterd......oh and some light from a guy named Dave maybe you have heard of him.....

It's just hard not to want to have a tank of rfas!  How many you have in there now?

Nice! From the first pic I thought it was an RFA pyramid.  A RFA tower is good, too.  ;)

Not really sure as I think I had 14 to start and added one today plus there are a few kids running around now.....maybe even a teenager or two.....

 

I had to a the rics as they just go together......it was my Florida corner in the 20.

And for sure you'll get more!!!  Can't wait to see the colors you end up with.  I've been enjoying seeing everyone's babies.

That rock is a cool shape!  Did the goby and pistol find each other yet?


Looks great!  The sand is nice and even - but it looks like it's just over an inch.... :P

Not sure on the goby and shrimp...I think so but they both disappeared once the rock went in.

 

Yeah I should measure again and siphon some out maybe :lol:

 

I have the top on it but never see the fish......I feel I need a fish I can see in there :unsure:

I am not into the chromis and I think the 10 is just to small for the files they would be sweet in there but I would feel bad. If I can find my convict that hides of course I will toss it in. But I would need to tear the tank apart in the garage for that to happen......

The word "wrasse" comes via Cornish from the Welsh word gwrach meaning an old woman or hag.

Yea I ordered a 2 gallon from micro reefs last week, apparently they are gonna stop making glass tanks and all his were 50% off. Probable end up with a tide over it and some soft stuff since I want it to be easy maintenance. Joining the little tank revolution, only smaller.

Yes they are nice and mine are breeding already......I have probably 8 small ones running around in there. This was the main reason for this set up. I was finding little ones in my 40 all over the place.
