Woohoo, total newbie, just starting a 4 gal Finnex. Mixin' up water tonight for Saturday LR and sand setup. Loved it when the LFS guy laughed in my face :angry: --I'll show him! Small is beautiful... :lol:

my setup: (pretty much exactly what fab is running)

3 gallon Picotope started April 4, 2008. 36w Coralife Light, Aquaclear 70 HOB filter Fuge mod with chaeto and chemipure elite and stock picotope light on reverse cycle, Hydor 50w heater, ranco single stage temp controller with a $6 target fan (I dont have A/C and now I am topping off three times a day, about a gallon and a half per week!)

 

Livestock: 5 sexy shrimp, 2 blue leg hermits, 1 ricordea florida, 4 ricordea yumas (i started with one), 1 purple mushroom, 5 green striped mushroom (I started with one of these too), kenya tree coral, green star polyp, several kinds of zoas including some new people eaters.

 

Here is an older photo, before I upgraded to the AC70. I will try to take some new photos soon.

That mushroom with the stripes is HUGE!

That's about as big as it inflates. The coolest thing is the four babies that have come off of it already. The ricordea to the right can actually inflate even bigger than the green striped mushroom!

Aaack...my tank has been up and running in my home office since Sunday. Neither of the two LFS in Santa Barbara have any live sand in stock, soooooooo...I'm still waiting to load and cycle. I'd like to join the OCP even though I only have salt water circulating right now (SG 1.022, yeah). :P

You guys have some great little tanks!!! I'm really wanting a "pico", but I'm affraid <5g is to small for me. I'm probably going to end up with a DIY 10g AIO instead. It will house a bunch of shrooms, zoas, and rics. I've got another project I want to tackle first though, so it won't happen for a while.
