I went ahead and ordered the sharknose goby on LiveAquaria earlier this week because my like 20 Instagram followers demanded it. 

 

But then I got cold feet and cancelled the order.  LOL.  I think I'm going fishless with this tank unless I come across some crazy fish that makes me change my mind (like @yoshii's Hawaiian petite gobies).  LOL.

been thinking of a pipefish.

Nice recs.  The gum drops look really cool.  The pike blennies look shady to me.   Too long and skinny with evil-looking eyes.

I REALLY like the pipefish but they seem like too much work with live food and all.  Like the exact opposite of having an ATO.

Does anybody else like the smell of Polyplab Reef-Roids? 

 

Has a really nice savory, seafoody smell.  LOL.  I do like seafood tho.

OK.  I can't tell if you are joking or if you agree with me that it smells good.

Right now am adding pods every morning before lights on and with pumps off -- seems to be every other day or every 3 days am also doing a small amount of pods after lights out in evening if I notice pod population is significantly lower than I'd like it to be. I also have sexy shrimp and feed them a small amount of frozen brine every other day -- have tried to spot feed the pipefish but no luck with frozen yet.

 

I ordered PJ Reefs magnetic artemia hatcher//feeder that I'm hoping will be a more sustainable (easier & more affordable) way to feed my pipe long term. Seems like an awesome feeder -- delivers tomorrow so we'll see how it works out!!

You could glue some thin-wall plastic in a spiral inside some PVC step-up coupling, or cut holes in the base of a funnel and do the same with some plastic on the inside of it too XD 

Or find someone with a 3D printer...

You're talking about adding a DIY random flow generator to my powerhead, correct?

 

Maybe I should just buy a 3D printer for this pico.  Might come in handy in the future.  LOL.

Also, despite having at least 2 extra digital therms, I decided to use the janky Marina brand thermometer on my janky snail tank cuz I wanted to embrace the jank, and it of course breaks in my tank spilling the lead alloy beads all over the tank bottom.  🤦‍♂️  Well I probably broke it when I moved some LR.

Had to use a magnet to pick up all the beads.

I sure am lol, to be a bit more serious most of the random flow generators don't work well below 250 or so gph. If you made your own it *might* function better because of the smaller size, but the ones currently on the market aren't exactly wide either. It could just be a limitation of moving water. The salty acrylic tank has one of the hydor random flow generators on a powerhead and it doesn't look THAT big.

Yeah, I think I need a 3D printer...
