My 5 gallon

Recommended Posts

gsol1911

Hey guys and gals here is my 5 gallon. I'm running Ai Prime over my tank. Filtration I use purigen,phosguard,and chemipure. All levels are at 0 and do weekly water changes. Corals seem to be doing great. I had to add a rock to the back wall for extra real-estate. I want to put a 1-2" clam on the sand bed and replace the candy can coral with a bubble coral. Any suggestions?post-89496-0-50079700-1446313665_thumb.jpgpost-89496-0-31141700-1446313740_thumb.jpg

How is the rock in the top right of the first picture held in place?

It is the marineland portrait 5gallon it cost like $50. And the rock is held in place with aquastick gel I think that is what I used. It is the glue used for frags. Use rock rubble and glue different small pieces together.the glue won't stick unless the glass is clean of algae or debris . Sand is carib sea live sand.

Just recently broke it down due to moving. Setting up a NUVO 20 peninsula as my next project

Was that the contour or portrait? Was it all stock or you changed the filter system/ light/ pump thank you

Just got this tank going to try a pico! What filter set up did you use to have what you listed in it? Was thinking of making a custom egg crate caddy
