Thank you!! Trying to come up with a theme... have a few ideas.  Trying to get critters than can go in the 20g when they get bigger or if this tank unfortunately crashes.

That a nice tank. Looking forward to seeing the theme you decide on.

Oo I like it. How do you like using the A80 on this tank? Can you tell that it's not centered or is the light spread still pretty even?

Hard to tell if the light spread will look off against the bare bottom and clear sides! Light stays regardless- had it sitting around in the cabinet (recently switched to AI prime) which was one of my inspirations for joining the contest.  My main concern was for the thin glass/acrylic (actually not sure what this tank has, came completely unlabeled in a stack of consecutively larger sized AquaJapan tanks; had to check dimensions in store with their tape measure) to break from mounting. Seems stable so far.

Also after unstacking all the tanks and finding out this one fit perfectly, it only cost $30.

Will scooping several cups of sand from my 20 gallon cause too much disturbance? Have 1-2 inch sandbed that is 8 months old. Tank is 1.5 yrs old (new sandbed after moving from LA to Bay Area).

You should be fine, but it will make a mess for a bit.

I did part dry, part live for my tank, I find it's a much better way to go when you can. Seeding the dry stuff (well rinsed, of course) with sand from an established tank seems to be a very cost effective solution with no real downsides, and ends up more diverse than storebought "live sand" anyways. Going with straight live sand from an established tank works too if you have one to pull from.

Thanks!!  My initial thoughts are to do a brightly colored RFA+zoa and anemone shrimp tank.

Coral rubble substrate. Pretty deep. Any chance I can make do with no rock?  I think the anemones will adhere nicely and be easy to move if needed.

Prisoners... so close to anemones yet so far.  May cave and let them free and try to catch them in several weeks 🙃

Well that was quick... the shrimp with the intact claw pinched the other one.

Planning on making that a calcium reactor? 😂 

 

i do like the substrate, though cause I haven’t decided on what to do with mine yet

Oh no it does look like a calcium reactor.  I have an idea to make a corner slanted rock wall using mesh and epoxy.
