nUgZ's new 10g

Recommended Posts

Here is one of my new tanks. It's a 10g AGA that will house various types of Zoanthids/Palythoa and various mushrooms. The sand is live Tahitian Moon black sand and the rock is from my old reef tank. It's got a long way to go, but it'll be nice in no time.

 

Lighting- Current Orbit 2x40 watt PC fixture with 2 lunar lights.

 

Flow- Aquaclear 70/300, Maxi-Jet 400.

 

Livestock

Large Hairy Mushroom

Trimma tevegae(Trimma goby)

Porcelain crab

Pistol Shrimp

Zebra Hermit

Scarlet Hermit

 

*EDIT* I don't think there are any Zebra hermits in here anymore. One of them liked to climb out of the tank...I found him dried up under the couch. I haven't seen the other one in quite a while. I also haven't seen the Scarlet hermit lately either. I added two blue-leg hermits and two Nassarius snails. I'll probably add a couple more Nassarius soon.

 

Don't mind the crappy pics.

I thought this was a nice shot of my Trimma goby. It could be sharper, but I like it regardless.

I know I said this was going to be a Zoanthid/Mushroom tank, but there will be one exception. As a rule I don't keep leathers, but this is supposedly a Tyree toadstool.

Awesome new frag tank man....you are for sure the 10g frag tank kind in my opinion. Looks like you are off to a great start with getting this going as well and I'm sure it's going to be awesome.

Thanks for looking divecj5. I need new bulbs for this tank, but I hope to order them soon. I'm also going to put some more rock in here and re-do the aquascape. It already looks somewhat different. I made the mistake of having grape Caulerpa where it could touch the rock and you know the rest. If I can ever get rid of it all I can move forward with my plans. It will be nice once I finish everything.

i love this tank... glad it got bumped up... how about a FTS? and do you still have that huge mushroom? can we get an actinic shot of that?

Thanks a lot Matty. I'll try to get a FTS tomorrow. I actually rearranged it a little today. I need new bulbs, but I should be ordering those soon. I do still have the mushroom. Hopefully it'll be settled in by tomorrow and I can get a good shot of it.

I lucked out today and got first dibs on this Acan. It's been under normal output flourescent lights, so I have to keep it under PC's for a few weeks before I can put it under the halide. I have no idea how nice this may end up being, but I think I'll be pleased. I don't mind the way it looks now.

The new Acan is looking better already. Here's a top down actinic shot.

The hairy mushroom is eating something. I'm not sure what though...I hope it's not a fish.

Please pardon the LPS in the tank...I know it's supposed to be a Zoanthid/Mushroom tank. It will be back to normal soon I hope.
