History

2016 Back when it was just standard 10g.

This was before I was forced to change the aqua scape because I broke the rocks accidentally during a wc. All mushrooms have been removed from the tank, they always detached and grew where I didn’t want to grow, often covering up zoas.

Some corals I want for the tanks are-

Yellow/green/orange cristata 

Maybe og bounce

some more bright zoas

Green lords 

 

I’m in no rush to get any of these though but if I see that cristata at the right price I won’t be able to click buy fast enough.

The hammers are so fluffy.

The 10g is doing great. The 20g is covered in algae so I’m slowly switching to bare bottom then maybe a thin layer of sand once it’s taken care of.

I was battling dinos than cyano. So the tank was looking like a mess for awhile.

New corals set up in quarantine. The most exciting one is the Fiji yellow toadstool.

Yellow leathers can be hard to find, such a cool coral.

Yes they are, sadly the first one I got melted. I have a Aussie one now which appears to be hardier so far.

I haven’t been satisfied with my nano in awhile, I usually like a minimal type bommie aquascape but I don’t know what I like any more. The tank is a euphyllia and leather dominated tank with some zoas and other lps here and there, half of my corals are in another tank right now. Some goals for the tank are to have soft ball sized coral colonys. I’ll post some pics of some possible aquascapes with some commentary, let me know what you think.

Aquascape 1 - This is the first aquascape, bommie style. This is my least favorite one, it has the least amount of surface area and hiding places for my fish.

Same aquascape with extra rock.

No middle rock, my micro lords instead.

Aquascape 2 - There’s room behind the rock structures to put some leathers on the bottom of the tank.

Aquascape 3 - This is like the classic rock walls I use to see and do when I first start reefing. It has the most hiding spots for my fish. It feels a little cramped with rock but also has the most reef like look and feel to me. As corals grow rock may have to be removed.

Aquascape 4 - There is some room behind the hammers to fit some leather corals to grow in the negative space. I struggled to find spots for some coral with this scape though.

Aquascape 5 - This is how the tank currently looks. It’s aquascape 2 with an extra rock, I’d ultimately put a yellow toadstool on that rock. There is room behind all the rocks to put taller leather on the bottom.

Current fts of the 20g, the leathers are bit closed since they are winding down for the night.

I’m thinking about switching the hammers to where the leathers are in the top of the tank so the leathers have more room to grow vertically sitting on the bottom.

Trimmed some hammers and froggies.  Rearranged the corals. I’ll probably tweak coral placements over time but I’m pretty satisfied with how things are.

Amazing transformation @spazizz! The new aquascape looks great, worth the trouble I'd say!
