I have the 12 gallon edge as well. I am running the stock lights with 3 ecoxotic ecopico led strips. Probably going to have to swap out the stock lights. Can I have the info on the lights you installed. Also are you going to add anymore rock to your scape. A few people have been saying I need more live rock in my tank (I also have 9lbs)? Looking forward on seeing your tank progress. Good luck with it.

^thanks!

i need to re-scape the rocks. i will look at other LFS because the one i go to has coral looking rocks and that's not what i am going for. i was going to post a picture of my tank and ask people here if it's suitable for anemone and other corals in the future.

 

i bought LED reverse lights from ebay. found an old router power supply and it was 12V output so it suited the LED. spliced the wires and that's it!. i'm not really happy with my craftsmanship so i will re-do it before having any corals in there.

What's your CUC? I've got 4 scarlet hermits and 5 nerite snail and 1 cerith snail but they dont seem like they are doing too much. The sand bed is really clean but there is still diatoms on the back of the tank and some green hair algae on one piece of live rock (inherited from the LFS, it's not spreading). Should I get more? Maybe a emerald crab?

i'm no expert on that matter but i have some sort of conch and the other one is a Astrae snail. amazing difference. the LR that they touched, looks bleached. i will upload a photo soon.

Cycle was done. But I added sand and a bit of nitrite had show up so I guess I have to wait a bit more to have everything going back to 0

 

I will post the New aqua-scape pictures either tonight or tomorrow

take that spider out imeditely and check every polyp inside of any polyps u have in bright light.u have a extremely hazardous pest called zoa spiders they literaly go in polyps

 

the shrimp is ok mysis shrimp

 

your snail is carrying a stony coral choking algae

 

i wouldnt worry about the bristle worms

 

return the snail......very serious hard to control algae if it gets in your tank.almost impossible to get rid of

 

check your glass for red flatworms

 

the curled up shrip from dip is safe copeopod

 

post 20 closeup pictures of everything in your tank.pm me and ill look around.
