My 2.5 Gallon 5 Month Update(three moves later)

Recommended Posts

As said in the subject, it has been five months since i set up my 2.5 gallon in May. I set it up at home, moved it in June to the beach, then back home in August and again in August to school with me. My friends told me before i left that it would be a sure "panty dropper" so far the ladies have been impressed, but i already have a girl friend so it does not really matter. Before i get into the description below are the links to my first two posts about this tank so you can see my progress.






Now that that is out of the way, the tank made all three moves well, with out any probblems. Several corals have been added and everything has shown great growth including the candy cane which had been fraged since the photo in the second link. I made a few purchases from people on nano-reef, reefcentral, some local people and one nanopack from seacrop. I top off every day and add two drops of this calcium reactor stuff, it works great for me. So my specs are...

Looks good, especially the hood, the best part of it is it looks good and probably cost $10 to build.


Keep it going.


What kinds of inverts do you have?


Like 2-3 hermits and 2-3 snails right?
