Added coral tonight.

 

Bizzaro Cyphaestra

Sunny D’s

Utter Chaos

Long Lash Eagle Eyes

Rainbow Hornets

Fire and Ice

Purple Rainbow Acan

Orangaide Acan

 

Couple quick cell phone top downs during the water change I did a few hours after dipping/adding. I did move the sunny d frag off the Hotel Palythoa to keep that for smaller head zoas.

Eventually ill I’ll get some time to get the real camera out. All my tank time has been tied up with small projects to get it dialed in or changing equipment. As the months wear in and things slow down with additions and changes I’ll be able to focus more on the photography side and buy the 100mm macro I keep eyeing daily...

 

cheers!

Things have opened up a bit since I added them. Really been impressed with the polyplens and my iPhone. As said though, stepping up to the DSLR again soon!

 

@CAD-Aqua Cadlights PLS-50 Elite 2 Skimmer is an absolute beast. Do anything you can to get this in your nano. Or a buy a tank that it fits. 10/10 from me.

Thanks @JR! I’m enjoying this more than any of my previous tanks by a long shot. Amazing what a little planning and past experience can do for the overall process.

Picked up a gold hammer, “tri-color Torch” and a piece of green cap.

 

Pics or it didn’t happen.

Agreed! The PicoRox was perfect, popped the cap on a small plug and dropped it right in, so convenient! I have the second one out at the moment since it was empty, but will get a red/sunset cap next LFS visit!

Man that Mightyjet moves some water. I put the stock one back in it was pulling a lot of water through the filter. Once I install the inTank media rack and skimmer I will put the pump back in.

Yes. I’m actually gonna grab a second one hopefully to experiment on with modifying the flow down more.

On the stock one it has a valve that attaches to the hose to control the flow. Not sure if there is anything like that for this pump. I do like it.

Probably could find something similar. I may try and clip the impeller or purposely create some partial obstruction on the outflow. Not sure what’s easiest and won’t shorten the pumps life too much. Just dreaming it up still.

The CadLights skimmer is a beast! @CAD-Aqua

 

This is about 5-6 days worth of skimmate.

I’ve been feeding the clowns crushed pellets daily, as they are tiny still. Also have been broadcasting 4-5 drops of polyplab polyp extender before hand for a little extra in the water column for the coral. Spot fed the acans some pellet for the first time Friday. 

 

Plan on adding more hammer, more zoas, and a red (or fancier variety) monti cap. Also on the look out for a scoly or plate for the bottom left.
