Just filled up. Going to pick up a piece of live rock tomorrow and clean off the glass. For now here is my old school pico tank in its cloudy glory

Quickly finding out how much of a pain the location of this tank is, only have a few inches above to work with. Rigged up a watering can for adding water, waiting on a magnet cleaner so I can actually clean the glass properly. Cheapo 10w heater is keeping the temp at 75°, which is colder than my other tanks but should not be an issue. My plan with the tank is to grow a bunch of zoas/acans/duncans with minimal daily maintenance. Hoping 100% water changes every 5-7 days will be sufficient without mechanical or chemical filtration.

In tanks this small, I don't see why 100% water changes in a week wouldn't keep things clean enough and levels up for growth!

Early morning water change. Added a few zoa frags from high tide coral last week. Everything running smooth so far.

How is your old school pico reef coming along @Donny41? I moved your journal to the Pico Reefs forum 😉
