I bought this glass vase for my first time to keep tropical fish 6 years ago. Its a vase for flowers from an ordinary supermarket actuallyand I refit it to my first planted aquarium.Then I became a saltwater hobbyist,and I just threw my hat in the nano tank battle with this glass vase,tried to reduce cost on keeping a reef tank.

This tank could hold less than 8L water After I put corals in there is just 5-6L water in it now.So I have to keep it in the way different from the ordinary large reef tank.There is no skimmer no wavemaker just use the Eheim 150 Classic and Eheim substart pro to run the system. Meanwhile Eheim 150 Classic can make some waves in the vase. Lots of people object to use external canister filter and artificial filter material,in my opinion,there is no perfect way and equipment, every coin has two sides we could foster strengths and circumvent weaknesses according to our own circumstance.BTW,cause there is no skimmer,I put a little air pump in to add oxygen.

Speak of lighting I made a LED by myself,include 3 blue 2white 1 purple lamp beads 3W each.

On algaes controlling,I depend on 3 Saron Shrimps,they keep the whole tank very clean so I just need to wipe it now and then. Generally speaking,I used to wipe the the obverse side and keep the other side dirty to make the algaes grow wildly,they can be the plentiful food for shrimps.BTW algaes can absorb the nutrients.


Until now,I haven`t test the water for even once,I usually evaluate the quantity of water by observing the condition of corals I think data is not the only standard,its just for reference the condition of creature is more direct.Luckily,creatures live very well in the past 14 months,SPS are obviously growing even can cut for friends as gifts:) This tank is too small,so I considered the trend of the coral growing at the very beginning, cause even my hand is too large for adjusting the corals,I usually use the tweezers.

Corals: Tube Coral, Frogspawn coral, Starburst Polyp, Hard Tube Coco Worm,Flowerpot coral, Xenia, Zoanthids, 3 Montipora digitata, Seriatopora hystrix, Open brain coral, Elegance Coral and 2 kinds of unknown SPS.

Fish&others: 3 Saron Shrimps, Cleaner Shrimp.

maintenance instructions
When the temperature and salinity are equal between fresh water and old water I will change. I use the air tube of air pump to change 80% water in every week,the tube could keep the progress more slowly reduce the crash for creatures.At the same time,it sucks the wastes subsided.

So far I haven`t doseing any elements except fresh water but as the SPS growing,I will add some at the right moment still based on the condition of all the creatures.

I feed fish with the freezed brine shrimp and Hikari,time is random,sometimes everyday, sometimes over one or two days. For corals I stired coral foods in advance feed corals in the other larger tank and then use the injector to shoot the rest to corals in this tank.

In general this little tank haven`t cost too much time I won`t disturb the growing of creatures in it as well.Don`t touch frequently keep a stable habit to maintain the ecosystem obvious the creatures these are what I learned from successful feeders. Take your time will be faster.Have fun!

That's an amazing jar! I'm impressed how quickly the corals are growing. Do you have to dose anything? What kind of current do you have in there?
