speaking of livestock...can you take some up close pics of the tanks inhabitants?

I’ll try! They are so tiny they disappear into the wilderness.

how big will those critters get? will you have to up-size them eventually or did you choose them cause of their pico proportions?

None of them will get very big. The bristleworm would probably get the largest over time. 😄

 

I keep thinking of getting shrimp but I don’t know.

No fish? Dwarf Goby (like Masked or Eviota) would fit in there....... I think?😇

So no fish or corals huh?

I’d feel too bad. 😄 

 

We’ll see how the frags do in there..... my guess is not well. The light isn’t great but I’m going to give it time before I go another route.

Saw my blue banded shrimp grabbing at my fish today but he was excited as I just fed the tank. That type of asshat behavior will get him banished to a mini complete though. He is tiny so not sure what his plan was if he got the fish or if he was just trying to get food and wailing around widly at anything nearby.

For everyone that was having salt creep issues:  

 

I decided to go all week without wiping down the tank.

you can see the tiny hermits in the first and last pic. One of them already murdered the snail and is wearing it all over town. 🙄

It’s one of the main design flaws of these tanks. Mine is not as bad as some have experienced though.

I thought about getting one of those tanks...just for kicks. But, not after seeing the creep. Also, I think the price is a touch high.

Its a novelty for sure......... but it was too cute to ignore. 😄 

 

I don’t think they thought it through from a reefing perspective so time will tell how it all works out. I just wipe the edge when I feed the other tanks and I never notice the creep. Some people haven’t had the salt creep issue at all.

MY DIY gene is kicking in again. Been thinking of how I create something small like the Mighty Tank, but better. Their light is on point though when it comes to functionality.

It puts the snail on its body or else it gets the hose again.

That sounds like something that would happen in my tank.

This is an EPIC tiny tank build from scratch, this guy has me WOW! I know it's not a Mini Complete Tank, AND it's a Planted Tank, but I found this extraordinary. 

 

WV Reefer, I'm not trying to threadjack, I'll remove this if you want, sorry. I thought I was still on the Mini Complete Tank thread, not your personal thread. My Bad!!!!

M was sitting in front of the 50 cube one night and there was a niblet near Tony's burrow. He came out, grabbed it and started snapping right next to it. Next thing I know, he's ripping it out of its shell, it was goddamn brutal.
