Your 'scape, and those corals, when everything fills out...Seriously. Don't cut yourself short. Your tank looks amazing!

 

It's about whats in the tank, that was the goal of this competition. And right now, you're KILLING it! 😍

This looks great! Love the coral selection. Will be easy to maintain your scape, looks well thought out. Almost looks like a green volcano on the front right

Been busy with so many tanks!

 

Pico has been going pretty good. Had a few aiptasia that needed smothering with aip x.

 

Also have some algae starting. Had the same kind in my 5g when I started it.

 

My acans had been damaged from a favia and they are recovering nicely in the pico.

The leather is already starting to grow. I really love colours on the tyree. So glad I got it. 

 

The jack o latern has grown. I took pics 3 days apart and there is noticeable growth. I was surprised.

 

My anemone shrimp likes to sit in the leather, sometimes I can barely see the shrimp, it hides well.

 

The hammer isn't happy, might have to move it.

 

I removed the favia, it took up too much room and it stings it's neighbours.

 

I added 2 more acan frags I had in my other tank and a gorg. 

 

I need a coral thats not an acan. lol any suggestions?

 

I now have  zebra hermit, scarlet hermit, anemone shrimp, and snails as inhabitants.

 

I might make a surface skimmer for this tank, still trying to figure out how to.

Hey @Clown79 that favia was HUGE!

I like seeing the variety you're able to put on that right side now (;

Thanks everyone

 

I know, the favia was way too big for such a wee tank😁

It's in my 25g now and looks small.

 

I have so many acans, I love them but I definitely wanna try something else in the tank.

 

The Lobo has lost some colour, thinking it might be in too direct of light.

Those acans make the tank look so mature already. I have a tiny 3 headed frag in my 7 gallon that I'm struggling to picture a good place for it in the Pico...lol... but yours look amazing!

When acans are happy and fed, they grow pretty quickly.

 

I have 1 in the pico that simply has never grown much compared to all the others I have had. 

It's very odd.

 

They seem to like all different light and flow, not too picky in my experience with them. 

I often just feed reef roids.

I seem to have a lot of algae. Gotta check under microscope, kinda looks like dino's.

 

Just had them in my 25g😒 

If it is, no waterchanges for now and will need to order pods.

 

Really should start harvesting them, gotta learn how to do that. Lol
