Hi everyone. So been keeping nano tanks ever since i started in the hobby.I had this tank set up for a while before i gave it to a friend. well it ended up just sitting for a long time so decided to set it up once again. Decided to do something different so i removed the PC lights and filtration. here are some progress photos:

 

livestock:

bunch of macros

a couple corals

yellowtail damsel GONE

few hermits

one snail GONE

 

equipment:

HD par30 (i think)

JBJ 6g tank

tetra heater

Knano 240

Here a small clip of the nano. Thinking about adding a hob filter with carbon for a while just to help clear the water.

Great little tank. A cleaner or peppermint shrimp would be cute in there? I love the splash of blue the damsel adds to the green and red!

So today I took out my little yellow tail damsel and went back to the lfs. He would stir the sand pretty much all day long and was getting annoying. Tank always looked cloudy.... And I also want a different fish. Just not sure what yet!

Codium is covered with tiny bugs. Anyone knows what type they are. Hard to tell, I know.

They weren't there before then from one day to the next they are all over the codium.

Hey Armando, those in particular are isopods. Good for the reef, similar to amphipods and copepods. Who'd you get your Mammillaris/Cladophora/Brachypus from originally? I bet those pods came from my tank! :D

hi Andrew thanks for the ID.

I got all my macros from a few members on sdr. Omarrubio, Igotcrabs, Jkennedy, Dc2sd, Sac_ngheo and Seanmcknew. Can't remember exactly which macros came from who though lol

But I'm sure at least one person on that list has gotten some macros from you at some point lol

Loving the new FTS. The tank looks really nice. What is the yellow, with the tentacles left of the mangrove?

Looks like branching GSP/Briarium.

Thanks phobos2deimos. Is it difficult to keep and where does one get it?

Pretty easy (although I'm one of those rare folks who has never had luck with GSP), guys on our local board usually have it. Pretty cool once growth takes off! This is 50 cube, one of our local guys, he was selling them here for $10-$20 per decent size piece.

Oh green star polyp! Doh!!! I know what that is and in fact have it. Because of the yellowish cast on the pic I did not recognize it. I thought it was a cool macro algae I had never seen. I am an idiot, LOL

Clean looking macro tank. Did you ever add a HOB or other type of

Filtration?
