Wow! Nicely done. Loving that RFA

Some reason it reminds me of Power Rangers. No idea why tho.

Well, I broke down and joined the RFA train. LAX Aquarium had a nice ultra pink one (thank you @Tigahboy for pointing it out!).

 

RFA addition is really making me consider investing in a light upgrade.

 

Here it is under the fluval evo stock whites

Thanks! That fluval stock blue light is so intense. Can hardly see anything in the tank from a couple feet away lol.

Already got one of those!! Lol.

 

Actually may be upgrading my fluval tank to a waterbox 45g.... in which case, the nanobox can be re-homed to my pico 🤔

Im all over the place right now, I downgraded from my miracles 300 gallon peninsula and missing it like crazy, but cant have a huge tank yet.  So maybe a 100-120 gallon miracles custom aquarium down the road with all the goodies 🤤.  

 

Ive done CAD 100 artisan before and at the time it was amazing for the price, but I had a bunch of issues and stuff that pissed me off about the build and quality.  Hence I won't do a Redsea, CAD, Waterbox, and or anything pre built in bulk like that for a larger aquarium.  

 

This is just my from my personal experiences, and I know people have had lots of success with those brands and they are great don't get me wrong.  But my Miracles was dead silent when in use and built beautifully.

That's a nice pink RFA!  Really fits in well with the tank.  I really like that pink outline on the tank too.  Really pops.

Yessssss. Thinking I should upgrade my light before I go after anymore SPS tho... Birds of paradise is doing great so far, but it's a pretty easy rated SPS. How hardy are the digitatas?

Yeah, I'd bet it's pretty orange under my current light... guess I need a nanobox on the pico. Which means I need a tank upgrade from the fluval. Which means I nanobox Duo for the upgrade, so my nanobox mini can go on the pico. Seems the only solution 😉

Welp, Birds of Paradise has been doing great but may not be for long... RFA has moved up my rock work and currently resting against its base.... and facing the back wall. Should I go ahead and encourage the RFA to keep moving?

 

Sexy shrimp are loving it at least (nice peek of Peter's favorite perch -- he hangs here upside down a lot).

Shot from the front -- can see the edges of the RFA

Forgot a pic of the new goniopora I added yesterday as well -- seems happy buddied up with my other one (excuse the glass, the rounded corners are hard to keep clean)

Well, I’m a child and dug out my old sea monkey castle tank. It fit the theme ? 🤷🏼‍♂️

 

Added some saltwater and a some artemia eggs — no clue if I can feed whatever hatches. Anyone know if it’s safe to just use a pipette and supplement my pico with more live food? Also not sure I can keep them alive. Thinking I’ll do a drop of phytoplankton every few days to feed them. Welcome any tips! Even if I can’t feed from it, I’m kind of loving it next to the pico lol.

It is his castle. A forbidden castle... but a pink one, nonetheless.

Couple additions and changes today.

 

Added two more RFAs and a small alveopora frag (bottom right - still slowly opening up) — & cut most of the plug on my Duncan and moved//glued it to the rock piece in bottom left of the tank. My first RFA is still planted to the rock right at the base of my birds of paradise, still facing the back wall 🙄.
