I'm not really into mushrooms... except for ricordeas ( my favorite), zoas are always awesome! take a look at my 14 gallon pictures and see if you like anything in there. If you don't mind waiting then we can work out a trade when some of my new frags grow out a little.

I met this guy that has AWESOME zoas, palythoas, and blastos. His tank has more to pick from than any LFS lol everything he sold me was a steal. I bought all of these for $125! I'm going to add fish before I start adding my frags into my tank, as it has finished cycling and I want the tank to become more stabalized... enjoy these pictures for now! omgomgomg

 

not sure what this palythoa is going to look like... it's just a baby.

alright, so we'll wait for my zoas and palys to grow out more, then we can set up a trade! : )

 

Nice frags :happy:

I can tell already that your BC8 is going to be Sweet! Your BC14 is by far my favorite of the bunch. I can't even copy your style even if I wanted to. Been changing my layout maybe 40 times already and it still look average. That's what happen when you buy 4 Big rocks instead of a bunch of small ones in a little tank like this.

 

P.S When I want to convince someone to go Nano, I forward them the link to your BC14!! Talk about a compliment. Just ordered a Sunpod 70W for the BC14 as well. I have a BC14 and a BC29 now. Maybe your BC8 is going to inspire me to buy that missing BC tank.

wow! thank you so much! that is one big compliment : )

 

to tell you the truth my 14 gal only has 4 rocks in it, but it took me forever to find a rock layout I liked... I take that back I did glue a few rocks together to make the arch. I will post how my tank used to look some time ( it might scare you away! lol) this tank only has 4 rocks in it. I think it's more difficult to work with smaller rocks.

Hello I just joined the fourms but I was wowed by one of my local fish shops. its in Sacramento called Fish planet aquarium. they are new but they have alot of stuff.

I just saw your pics and thought I gota do this. so much more fun than gold fish.. haha

 

Very nice pics!!

 

I have a question , how much does it cost to get started? I see the biocubes are pretty expensive.. 8 was about 140-150? and the 14 was only around 20$ more..

how much for fish coral etc supplies? thanks

 

again VERY NICE setup and PICS!!

My 8 gallon was $160. My 14 gallon was $200.

The whole basic setup, with live rock and sand was about $230

 

I'm planning on upgrading my lighting to metal halides... that will be $220

 

local fish stores have their own prices for fish and corals, but i find that most softies sell for about $30-$50.

 

thanks... good luck!

2 questions:

 

How will those clams do with the stock lights?

 

And where the hell do you get all of your money? :P

1.they wouldn't do good under stock lighting. They need intense light.

 

2. it's my little secret :P
