Your rubble wall is an interesting concept. Interested to see where you go with the rest of your scape.

 

Your anemone shrimp are so cute, love the porcelain too!

I had a porcelain crab in a 5.5 gallon & it loved to hang out on the bottom of cliffs in the rocks or under the powerhead.

 

Hopefully yours will be out & about to enjoy watching it filter the water.

Discussing getting tank-spawned baby RFAs from Jason Fox over email! Excited! Will fit with my overall goal to stick with aquaculture/captive-bred livestock.

I have noted fluctuations in temp from 74F to 84F. I think tank light and sunlight are probably large factors, but not too happy with my Cobalt minitherm so far.

that is pretty extreme. I'd trade it out, and maybe consider a fan on a timer or temperature controller.

Just saw you were talking RFAs, not BTAs. Not sure how i misread that. regardless, RFAs would be nice

I’m also thinking about one BTA for the pico but I already have a captive spawned “rainbow” in my 20 gallon that grew at least 5x in size over the past few months. Maybe he will split!

I kind of like the simple scape and am favoring no further rock structures!! I have arches, caves, etc in my other tank. May eventually decide on some live rock if the cycle is difficult.

I think the simple scape will highlight the RFA, they speak for themselves, so gorgeous.

Is this a pod or baby shrimp?  Found it in my ball of chaeto aka mini fuge in the 20gallon- It’s cute!   Went in the pico.

So I have an idea and it’s a little crazy. What is the lightest or least dense coral - gsp? cloves?

Do you mean least dense ? Or most buoyant?

I was thinking more in terms of buoyancy.

aren't density and buoyancy the same thing? I.e. if it's less dense, it displaces more water for a given weight, meaning it's more buoyant.

I was thinking strictly in terms of what would float easier (which I was just guessing was what OP was getting at).

@DaVinciClownI'm thinking about getting a couple RFA, anything in particular I need to know? Would they be okay in a mixed reef?

My RFAs have not had any issues in the 20 gallon mixed reef and have seemed happy from the start.  Feed them maybe once a week or so.  They don’t mind the anemone shrimp and also don’t mind touching  eachother. I’m a little nervous with the non-established pico and also starting with new very tiny RFAs that were tank spawned (hopefully by Jason Fox).

Would they do fine in a mixed reef? How aggressive are they?

I have RFA in my 75 and one already in my janky tank.  I currently have them touching mushrooms, zoas, and gsp.  They have not hurt any of those things in my tank.  They all live peaceful next to each other, but I don't know about other corals.

Perfect, thanks for the info!
