Hey guys, this is my very first saltwater tank and I am excited to start. I bought a 24 gallon compact fluorescent nano cube about 3 weeks ago and set it up this week. Making a progression thread so I can show you guys what it looks like as time goes on. Gonna be a Zoa/mushroom dominated tank

I forgot to mention I went hoodless and I derimmed the tank. I bought 2 bumble bee snails and an emerald crab 2 days ago. I'll post some more pictures after Christmas. I also ordered a clean up crew from John Maloney (reefcleaners) to help with my diatoms.

Thanks man. Vivid aquariums in canoga park. They have them all the time, but you gotta check in to see of they have a full on yellow one. I went on Tuesday and they had nicer ones than the one I have, they had a much brighter yellow color.

Just a quick update, I bought a huge pack of ricordeas and zoas. I'll post pictures up in a little bit. Also my female clown, midas, and sailfin started showing signs of ich on Saturday. I started doing two a day feedings with garlic and since Monday, it's all gone!! #winning

Big update!!!!!!

 

I redid the aquascape because I think my last scape had too much rock in it so I took some rocks out. I also placed my fluval edge heater in the display because I use it as my thermometer. I took out all my fish because of the ich in my tank. I added another panorama pro and some more corals.

I used a plant hanger to hang it. I made it out of a 12 inch picture frame and used some wires from Lowe's to hang it. It's really easy to do & i'm not really a DIY person.

 

Update on a couple of new corals:

 

Duncans

Candy Coral I was lucky enough to have 2 feather dusters attached to the frag ^.^

Since i'm currently quarantining fish, I have so many pods. I noticed the pods attacking my zoas so I put them in a breeder net and they're doing fine now. My DIY frag rack lol.
