This is my first saltwater aquarium that I started in early May. I've had very good luck with it, no major problems so far! Everything is going according to plan. It's a JBJ NanoCube 12DX. I just installed a Maxijet 900 & Hydor Flo to replace stock powerhead. I love it!!! I recently added a Fishbowl Innovations Moontube...I highly recommend this moonlight!
So far, this is the livestock that I know of in the tank (stuff keeps popping up!!):
-11lbs Fiji live rock with a bunch of oyster wing oysters
-21lbs live sand (planning on getting rid of 1/2 of it)
-Copepods, millepods, bristleworms, etc
-Tunicates, orange ball sponge (regenerating), barnacles, feather dusters
-various sea weeds (don't know the names--anyone?)
-Cup & Tube corals
-Curly Cue anemone
-Candy Cane Coral
-5 turbo snails
-9 Nassarius snails (not pictured)
-2 or 3 Keyhole Limpets
-about 5 unidentified (tiny) snails
-Serpant Star (named Sammy)
-Peppermint Shrimp (named Jumba)
-Midas Blenny (named Barney)
And I think that's about it!!! But like I said, new stuff keeps popping up every day.
And thats it! I'm thinking of adding a few zoos, maybe a few mushrooms, and a sun coral. But not anytime soon. I've spent nearly $600 on this baby so far...it's my pride and joy though (except for my betta & two dear dwarf puffers!). I never could have conceived how fulfilling a marine tank could be. It's amazing to think that I'm am pretty much taking care of my own little slice of the ocean.
So my crazy science experiment is going exactly as planned...
Anyways...comments, questions, suggestions-- all welcome!!! Let me know what you guys think!!!
