    • Weetie, that's brilliant!  I never would've thought of ice cube trays!!!  Do I need to weight down the trays at all?  Or will they sit on the bottom?  I've got some larger containers for the rocks and stuff but wasn't sure what I'd do for the frags!  Woooo off to the store tomorrow...sometime lol.  We're leaving hopefully tomorrow night or definitely by Tues morning.  And yes, maybe we will get to meet!  I'll be east of Charlotte for the time being but where I ultimately end up depends on the job sitch.
    •   Thanks Christopher! I'll check this out and will likely be purchasing them!
    • FTS 04/23/17 Everyone is a wee bit pissed at the moment as I had just finished scraping algae off the glass throughout the entire tank.    Still experienicng the STN on the Bali Shortcake colony and the Stylophora colony but it doesn't appear to have progressed. I'm guessing the changes in position relative to the light and flow haveblikely helped to solve the issue but I'll continue to keep them under a watchful eye.      Slightly closer shot     And introducing George, the three month old comatose Llewelyn Setter.     
    • I've wanted to have seahorses since I was a child so now is time to give it a try. Here is my update for the 4th month journal on my nano reef tank.
      Enjoy! https://youtu.be/8r0A5zPnamk    
    • Great shot E and happy you got the opportunity to not only experience this but also catch a shot of it!  Bravo my friend.
    • I was a starting the Red Sea Coral Colors and needed some classy looking dosing containers to go in the stand so I came up with these baby's    https://youtu.be/dlrkT9BpHHc
    • Welcome!  Nothing majorly wrong except like you've identified its not quite optimal but not a disaster either   Everything will work as is for now and later on as you research more and figure out what you're doing you can upgrade equipment as you go   Personally, for a 20L I liked having an AquaClear 70 on the end and use a Maxi-Jet at the opposite end. Both are fairly cheap. Like @Pjanssen said, you'll want more flow if you want coral.  Your lights may also need to be changed. From what I read, they claim they should be good for low light coral so as you get more experienced you may want to upgrade the lighting later.  But like I said, you can upgrade as you go along and learn what you want.   You didn't mention a heater.  I assume you have one and if not, you need one   A refractometer is also vital to make sure your salinity is good.   But  to the forum.  This is a great a community with tons of experienced and helpful folk and great information.  
    • Oh my goodness, SO MUCH happening here, lotsa cool stuff!!! Really, really loving those Blastos and some of the other Polyps!! For the move, get a styro picnic cooler and put water in that, then get a couple of new plastic ice cube trays and put a frag in each compartment, then place trays in the cooler.  Works great, did that for Frag Swaps when we set up as the Reef Chicks Coral Kitchen!! When's the big move? Maybe I'll even get to meet you in person sometime since you'll be closer to me!! 
    • It's not too much further of a reach.  And there's not going to be a lot of equipment on this one.  Just life support.  Nothin' fancy.  My goal is to rock those basics. lol   Progress (not): The ATO is still a no-go.  if you remember in my lagoon, I was having issues with TOM aqualifter and I thought maybe it was just too high.      But no.  I did a test and this thing can't pump 12 inches.  So now we're in a tough spot.  Risk it still being too high with another TOM or drop another $140 for the IM Hydrofill Ti  which I  have been LOVING in the Lagoon.  We've tabled talks on that for now.  I'm burning @skoechle out with this tank.  But since we're not using a controller, he's finally going to get his tank to experiment building his own controller for. @skoechle = nerd.   Actual Progress: Um, that thing I did yesterday looks awesome.  So, yeah.  I took lots of photos and I want to share but I can't because I'm still holding a grudge about May 10th.  So nyah.  Also, the koralia nano and the IM media basket came in.   Good news: @StevieT's baskets are double the cost and still worth it. IM's feels like cheap plastic and I was afraid of breaking it when pulling it out.  It is also significantly narrower (ie fitting the inTank baskets takes a small push while IM's just drops in and then leans sadly to the side). While I'm glad I did not spend $40 for another basket (because I'm starting to run low with these two tanks), I am also glad that IM's is not comparable.  Because I've already dropped $80 on the inTank baskets in the Lagoon.  Its nice to see IM's basket is good for the money and is fair for the price but doesn't hold a candle to Stevie's quality goods.  The downside is this tank will not be quite as wet as the Lagoon.
