There was a tank here before with an all acylic stand. I wish I could find the post.

After more than a month of curing my live rock, it's finally wet.

Zoomed FTS.

What's funny is that a yellow sponge lives on the back of the rock that's just outside the pineapple house.

What a fun concept, this came together so well! I don't think I've seen a tank with a full diorama in back like this 🙂 

 

I can't stop laughing about the mullet tank joke either 😂

Thanks CM!  I figured why not embrace my avatar for this contest.  I hope to have it fully stocked for the month end FTS, then sit back and watch it grow.

That would be cool to look at 

 

@seabass have you used plastidip? I wanted to know your thoughts on using a non saltwater decoration and making it safe

I'm sorry, I haven't.

Don't they use clear epoxy resin on Tanked?  Depending on the object, I think that might be an option.

I purchased a couple more pieces of montipora during Unique Corals' live sale this weekend.  They will show up Thursday, but I'll probably acclimate them in my Caribbean tank with the other corals for this tank.  The goal is to have them glued for the month end FTS.  I'd like my FTS shots to be growth shots versus me just adding more stuff throughout the competition.

 

I also decided that it would look better if I added another piece of rubble to the tank.  So here's a bleached piece of rubble that we can watch color up over the next six months.

What is that rubble? is that a dead monti skeleton? 

I'm not sure; that coral skeleton was part of some rubble that was included with a dry rock order years ago.  I suppose that it could be from a montipora. :unsure:

@seabass  Lovin the depth effect... 

Thanks!  I wish I did it even bigger; but at least it fits on this stand.

 

After a little research, I removed three unidentified limpets today.  Not knowing exactly what species they were, I decided not to take any chances.  I'm not sure I made the right choice about the stars and limpets, but figured it's better to error on the side of caution.

 

Funny, with all this life, I've only seen a single pod.  I might have to import some.  In the meantime, I think I'll load this tank with phyto and see if I can start a bloom.

lol bigger is always better, but its just right!

 

I've never seen so many different kinds of pods in my pico they are multiplying like crazy.  I guess it was a good thing seeding the whole thing with chaeto from a fellow reefers 300 gallon.

Good idea.  Maybe I'll seed some with macro from my 100 gallon tank.

Yes they do

I wonder if you attached a montipora frag directly to that piece of rubble if it would utilise the skeleton and grow faster than say an identical frag mounted on the rock.

 

Growthwise that piece of rubble looks very similar to the purple and yellow montis that I would see washed ashore in the Pacific.

I can't imagine that it would matter.  However, I will be mounting one or more montiporas to that piece; so I guess we shall see.

Like a Monti version of the Frankenstein tree?
