Hi there I have a 12 gallon to so I will follow your setup ? You may need to pass on some of your fish that’s a lot for a small tank I believe you will find it hard to keep on top of water quality with feedings etc for them.Make sure you research and dont let the LFS just advise you,a birds nest for a first coral is NOT a good idea. YouTube is where I research everything and on here asking questions however so many opinions obviously on forums can be baffeling so research is best with this. Be ready to test and test and test again and be prepared to do a lot of water changes with this tank. Little changes often is properly better than big % changes.

 

good luck

Thanks Lauren! I just got my RSM 130D in the house yesterday, will probably use some fish from the 12 to cycle it.

Oh no did he jump in the back then ? sad news this has happened to me before but luckly no death.

Just added a acrylic top cover as removed my all in one lid awhile ago and then my goby jumped out a few weeks ago.

He must have, he was almost full grow. I still have a top on mine, I noticed there is about a 3/4” gap between the hood and the top of the filter divide. Going to have to figure something out with that. Unfortunately he was DOA

Hey!! When you wrote this over a month ago you kinda kicked my butt in gear to do something with this tank. It was neglected for months and started dropping alk, I was also fighting with getting my 34 stable with all my SPS. 

 

I have kinda turned this tank into a lagoon type tank with zoa’s, the anemone and a bunch a softies. I do have some acans and a couple goni’s that I’m going to put in that new rock up front. I also moved my clown from the big tank to this one and it hosted the anenome almost immediately. Added a gobi pistol shrimp combo to the tank. Hardly ever see them though. 

 

Here are are some update pics
