The Fools Reef ... The final 2.5 gallon long pico

How about something encrusting along the back glass?  You could glue, or use magnets, a tile on the back glass.  It would not stick out far and shade anything.

Looking good.  I too love the quick water changes though mine aren't quite as effortless.  I tend to drench the carpet no matter how many towels and mats I lay down first.

Chalice love to change color depending on tank, lighting, and position, mine came in plain pink and blue; now it has reds, oranges, greens, purples... Such cool animals.

Those hammer and blasto colonies are both gorgeous.
You stunner chalice is dark and rich too, really different from most parent colonies I've seen.

Thank you! I wasnt gonna get any Euphylia for this tank but when I saw that hammer in shop for the price it was at I said "screw it, if it gets too big ill frag it and share the beauty" 

Its already split twice since I got it 😬😬😬

I think everythings growing quite fast as ive been dosing a small amount of reef roids daily, as well as phytoplankton 3 times a week 

Trying to keep my pod population up and my macro algae alive
