  1. Past hour
  2. Well the Ultra Toxic Green has turned to a brown slime (that I have removed) and a tiny Oral Disc Lava Lamp not looking too good either It's on a small piece of Live Rock Rubble.... don't think it will make it. 🤷‍♂️ But it is not too bad. Spotted a Baby Ricordea that wasn't there yesterday. Will be interesting to see which one it is Also this strange Red Algae? Yes and another glowing "nodule"

    The Kraken's Lair

    It`s been a while since my last post. I addded several corals. Now, i am looking for a maxi-mini anemone, as well as other euphylia species since I am a big fan of those. Maybe some zoas and shrooms. Also, do you think the tank is going to be big enough to house a firefish goby with 3-4 sexy shrimps, I am currently not skimming , but I am planing to add a skimmer very soon. I read that there is some sort of symbiosis between sexy shrimps and maxi minis.
  5. Well turned up this morning and both seems to have taken a tentative hold on the underside/crags of this rock. I think just watch them, gently baste the area and let them do their thing. I tried to lower the light level but then everything else looked terrible....... might have a shuffle around see if I can make some more shade for them. I do have that flat mushroom shelf rock and the eggcrate racks

    Good Variable Speed PH

    I currently have two PH's in my tank. One is a MP10 and the other is a Koralia Evolution 600gph. Im looking to replace the Korialia with another variable speed . I dint want tow pay the price for another MP10. Looking for a good alternative. I know the I can get a controller for the Koralia. To many bad reviews of it. Any suggestions ?

    Snow's 2.9G O.S.P.R. Mushroom Mansion - Stripping Down.

    I ordered him from liveaquaria they called him a blue sapphire damselfish. It may be the springers damsel that is reported to eat flatworms. I know you can not order from them but maybe you can look at the picture and get something close. I think it is the same fish that Tigah boy has in his pico that is eating flatworms. If you read through the last page of my thread I got a lot of great advice on flatworms. I hope some of this info will help.

    We can't get it from shops here - I tried to purchase it through online vendors, but anything with fenbendazole (or of that ilk) is sold in large cartons and almost RM 400 excluding shipping. Too expensive for me. 😞 I might try to check on the LFSes up north - maybe they have something similar. Singapore is another option, but I'll have to travel across the border and it'll be quite the hassle (and I'm not sure if I'm allowed to take meds back into my country without some form of prescription/permit, even if those are animal meds). 🤔

    Have you tried Levamisole? I successfully used it with a bunch of Flatworm eXit resistant flatworms.

    What type of fish is yours, if I might ask? I was honestly wondering if there is anything willing to eat the pests - I can rehome the fish later, if this can help me salvage the pico somehow. 😓

    So sorry about the flatworms again. I had them also. I dipped the rocks and did lots of cleaning to help get rid of the majority. My little blue fish seems to have eaten the rest. I hope you are able to keep the tank, I enjoy your pictures of the mushrooms and reading about it.

    Just wanted to update: I am battling flatworms (again!). 😓 It has come to a point that this little pico, which has been my joy, has become a source of stress. I even lost Scarlet the purple hitchiker crab yesterday. I am genuinely thinking of scraping the whole thing off. Dipping everything again, QTing the corals and then *when they are flatworm-free, move the whole bunch into my 60G. My only concern is Miko, my TSB. Prowler can be easily slipped into my larger reef, but Miko will be up against my Starry, Thanos. I will definitely give it more thought. I put a lot of care and effort in this little tank - would hate to tear it down. But I am struggling with it at the same time. 😔

    WHATS ARE MY NEXT STEPS?

    Use the stock sponge for now. Did you get the liverock in yet? How "live" was it? You can toss the sponge and filter media that came with the tank at any time, just let it get all janky for a week or two and then toss it.

    I made a DIY media box for a IM nuvo 10

    Now it slides in really snug. It will bump on the zip ties going in but still goes in good. I ended up cutting 2 square sections off the top( total length) and then putting top piece on so it didn't stick up higher than the tank Hope this helps my fellow IM NUVO 10 owners on a budget or just likes doing DIY!

    Make sure to put the side pieces on the inside of the back piece, not stacked on the sides of the back. I'll try to show you with a picture for this step.

    Haha, I imagine so! I used to keep 2 tiny crocea (one blue and one purple) in my nano many years ago. They did surprisingly well before I shut down the tank and sold them. I did dose Ca and kH manually everyday though.

    Newbie Here to the Saltwater Hobby.

    Well - by RO/DI water you mean saltwater right? If so, have you introduced ammonia to the tank? (Ghost feed, clean ammonium etc) Whats your rock source? Were they dry prior to going in your tank or did they come from another aquarium? If yes to the latter, then you might not have to wait as long as you think - may be an instant cycle. nonetheless, monitor your levels and take your sweet time researching as much as you can - skimmers are not needed on nano tanks.

    I made a DIY media box for a IM nuvo 10

    I made 4 of the dividers. Top and bottom and 2 inserts to make 3 chambers. Then I just sectioned them off as i saw fit. Again make sure the clasps are on the inside or it wont fit.

    I made a DIY media box for a IM nuvo 10

    Then I cut the sides 3 wide and zip tied them together making sure the place where the zip ties fasten is on the inside of the box. Then I cut the inserts for the chambers 3x3.

    • Preventing Freezer Burned Reef Foods
      I feed a few different frozen foods and it takes a while to go through them, even with my heavy feedings. I keep everything sealed up and try to get all of the air out of the bags for the flat packed stuff, but I am still seeing quite a bit of freezer burn, even with the blister pack cubed foods. I think a lot of it has to do with the defrost cycle and the constant thaw/freeze cycles. The food seemed to last longer when I had a bunch of bottles of water in the freezer to minimize cycling.
       
      What does everybody do to minimize freezer burn with their frozen foods?
