So this is the progression of my ten 10 tank from start until now. I have added everything very slowly and have had my shear of ups and downs. The most recent was a battle with nucance algae but thing are back to normal now. Any ways just looking for some input as to where to go from here and what might look good where. Tank is a 10g square, running 2 aqua clear 20 with in tank media boxes one is a small refuge with sand and chaeto other is filter media, purigen, cemi pure blue, carbon, and ceramic media, lighting is a kessil a160 Tuna blue running on a Kessil controller, two hydor 240 nanos, coral life skimmer, 9 lbs life rock and 1” maybe a bit more sandbed. Current stock 

candy canes, Duncan’s, random polyps, rfa, and ricordea, for coral. 1 clown, 4 scarlet hermits, 1 pincushion urchin, 2 nassarius snails, 1 trochus snail. As well as dragons breath and halimeda macro algae. Let me know your thoughts.  Pic are from start to now.

I like it! 😄

 

 Maybe add a Gorgonian or something tall and slender to help break up and balance the large peak.

Well, almost another year gone by and the tank is still doing great. I have however decided to up my game and went from my ten gallon to a 100gallon with a 40 gallon refuge. Nothing has been move over as I’m still making sure everything is stable. It was purchased from a good friend who didn’t have the time anymore. I think it will be great once it’s all scaped and going

Just a little upgrade..ha!  

 

While big tanks are more expensive to maintain, you sure can get some good deals when people are ready (for one reason or another) to get out of the game~
