I suppose I better get this hot mess started before the month ends and I forget to make a post.

 

First thing that happened is my dog broke the tank so I glued a piece of glass across the back and we are going to roll with it and hope it holds water.

 

While I wouldn't say these are my favorite snacks...a vitamin water and watermelon are what I'm snacking on at 2am before bed.

I can see it now, the jankiest tank having the nicest reef inside and taking this competition.  You might also need a funny window sticker for the front, and some duct tape for the rim.

Well...no sand yet or heater or a powerhead...but it does have some water as of today. Bring on the diatoms and uglies!!

 

Nothing to fancy to see...just a traditional little reef made from a broken tank and scraps of old equipment. I have no idea if the mangroves can survive my cats.

 

I think I sunk 15 bucks into it out of pocket.

I like that rock on the left.

I have a large rock piece similar to the one on your left. It currently has various SPS glued to it. 

 

Really like your scape! I contemplated using mangroves earlier on but my LFS only brings in large ones and I have a bird so giant mangrove plant = yummy chew stick. 😅

 

Can't wait to see this filled up with coral.

I love the rock on the left also.  It looks like a prehistoric animal.  I think it will look cool covered in coral.

lol thanks, the tall rock covers the huge crack!

 

Diatoms have hit... omgomgomg

 

Also found a very MEAN BAD CRAB in one of my other tanks attacking one of my fish. He ran into a cave and I had to chisel him out, he had hoards of macro and dead snails and crap in there.

 

Will post pics of him in a sec... looks like this will be a pest pico.

Gorilla crab?

No I don't think so....gorillas have white eyes?

 

It looks to be a Eriphia ferox (ferocious reef crab or devil crab?). It is aggressive and kills fish and snails and anything. I am not positive though but was the closest thing I could find. 

 

they are listed as a vunerable species if that is him.

 

It had a little graveyard and the cave it was in looked to be made by him. It had a small enterace the same width as him but the inside was hallowed out and large with his collections of bodies.

What a scary looking creeper!  Looks like he'd as soon stab you as anything!

A while back, someone on here had a pom pom crab in a pico. She took a video of the pom pom trying to carry 3 or 4 baby hermits back to her lair...

 

I think that pom pom was related to Shelby (the pom pom I had in my first tank on here).
