What a tease! 😄 

 

What's the story behind this little beauty? What do you have planned?

XD it's a maroon clowns dream home. Although the tank is the Evo 5, the clowns barely move from their anemones so I think it will work for a while lol. 9 gbtas and rbtas for now, and a mini maxi. I probably will make a thread sooner or later for it.

March Update:

  • Stock changes: Pistol shrimp was removed and placed in the HOB, and the sexy shrimp was put into the EVO 5 gallon
  • General maintenance: Removed the HOB and did a deep clean on it.
  • Upping water changes to every other week.

Light schedule(Kessil Spectral Controller):

Starts @ 10 AM 

Ends @ 10 PM

ramps up to 100% around noon and stays till around 2

I personally like the blue spectrum so I have it on blue all day long

 

Now for some pictures (used my DSLR, still trying to figure out how to avoid making corals look washed out):

Look at that spotless HOB refugium! All the rocks were placed in a cup with water before cleaning.

While I love taking DSLR pics, I find that it doesn't truly represent what the corals look like in real life. However, the orange gel filter pics with my cell phone embellish what corals look like. I really want to figure out a way to figure out how to take accurate pictures without having to edit with Photoshop. 

 

I need a recommendation for a smaller pump, while the small rio pump does a good job it just looks a little ugly.

 

Once again, thanks for reading!

Looking good! 

I think you’ve done a good job hiding the Rio. I barely noticed it until you called it out.

Thanks, I've been trying to hide it from the start lol but it hasn't looked natural until these past few days. I think this tank is finally at the point where I'll stop moving stuff around.

Settling on a scape is hard, but you've certainly made it seem larger then 2.5g so thats 71% of the battle

Thanks, that's sort of what I've been going for. This current state is definitely the best it's looked imo.
