I'm waiting on the lid too. Lol. 

 

The angled glass lid is useless.

Oh sure. Go to other threads and leave compliments based on photo's but if someone come's to your thread to maybe do that. They get a tease about new addition. What time are lights on?

@Clown79 - curious if you’re planning to dose the pico with any 2 part? I haven’t been testing alk/ca/mag for mine... would be great if I can get away with just weekly water changes but love your expertise for a setup this small.

Great growth on the Lepto! I hope mine take off like that! I’ve got one in full light and med-high flow, and one halfway shaded in lower light and lower

flow...what kinda light and flow does your get?

I rarely test mine. Most likely going to rely on waterchanges unless I notice a significant drop in alk 

 

I wasn't testing either. From April 26th to May 13th there was no waterchanges. My alk drop from 8.5 to 7.5. I dosed because I am not doing regular waterchanges right now. 

 

With my pico jar, I never testing or dosed. I relied on weekly 80-100% WC.

Mine is off to the side of the tank in low/moderate light. 

 

Flow is definitely lower in that area.

 

I am feeding heavy in this tank to raise nutrients to kill off dino's. That worked in my 25g.

 

I feed coral food every other day and dose phyto every other day on days I don't feed. I dosed copepods and feeding them phyto keeps them reproducing. 

 

My photo period was dropped due to dino's. It's on for 4 hrs.

Reason I added kalk to my top off water.  Keep Alk & Cal stable and still do 50% waterchanges.

That was my initial plan too.  However, my tank (with lid) doesn't have much evaporation.

So my new addition.

 

He's really small. Obviously he will be rehome when he outgrows this tank.

Love the new fish. Of course I happen to be fond of damsels. Many are so colorful, usually very hardy and inexpensive. I hope it does well for you.

Damsels are really pretty fish, it's a shame they can get so mean.

 

I hope he does well too, he eats like a pig.

So happy. 

 

Checked under microscope yesterday and I couldn't find any dino's. 

 

Plan on adding some corals hopefully soon.

 

I moved the tank into my kitchen. It's just too cute to keep in a room I'm never in!

That's great to see the growth on the JackOLantern! How well are the other corals doing now?

They do look happy & fantastic!!!

 

I like your cute lil fish!  Hopefully he settles in nicely & behaves himself.

Thanks everyone.

 

I switched the tank into the kitchen so I had to switch the light from my Abi to the Nemolight.

 

Since the switch nothing is opening or looking too great.

 

I tried running the light very low then a bit higher. No change.

 

My params are great. Temp stable, sg stable, I even added additional flow to see if that was an issue. No change.

 

The Par 38 won't fit under the cupboards so I may have to buy another light.
