Cultivated Reef

New 13.5 gallon

Hello everyone, 

 

I am new to owning a reef tank, and very excited to start this hobby! Between this forum and my hubby, I have already learned a lot! 

 

So far this is our setup: 

Fluval evo 13.5 with Protein skimmer and heater, a wave maker, three different sets of zoas (mainly orange—not sure how that happened), one larger ricordia yuma rock,  a cleaner shrimp, 5 hermits, and about 7 snails. 

 

We did move the zoas on the rock in the picture down to the base of the tank. They didn’t seem to like it up there. 

 

I really enjoy seeing everyone’s tanks! I can’t wait to add a few more corals and a fish or two, but I know patience is key.

Thank you! I really like zoas, so most likely more of those in as many interesting colors as I can find. The ricordea rock I sat on the fence with for a while but after having it in my tank, it has grown on me. So if I can find another in a different hue there might be one more in the future. 

 

As far as fish, my hubby and I were thinking a pair of mated clownfish. 

 

Any recommendations on corals I should consider?

Looks good so far! I like the sand. 🙂

Thinking I am going to start a journal thread. We added some new additions to my tank today!

Do it!  We like lots of pics! 😀
