I never make seem to make it to the end of these but always fun regardless.

 

Decided to order a Marineland 5g AIO because it's super inexpensive at 60 bucks and has a great lid. Plus I don't see people using them so let's see what it's got to offer!

My theme will be "Growth". Going to add frags and see what they look like in 365 days if I make it. No colonies...no instant reefs....

 

Just want to see if I can get things to grow and fill in over time...

 

Exception being things that can't be easily fragged like plate corals and such.

 

Hoping to take more frequent photos then I usually do to document the growth or maybe lack of...if I fail my own theme!

Are those the portrait tanks? Really nice looking.

Yeah! I looked at all sorts of stuff and nothing could beat it for the price for near plug and play.

Cool! I was thinking about something like this just to see if I could get zoas to grow. 

What light will you be using?

I have a spare nanobox but even a tuna ABI would work I bet.

You always start off so strong.  We'll need to watch out if you decide run this one to completion.

that was one tank on the list myself, not that i really need another tank....but the new house will have a fish room so perfect place for such projects.

Good luck man, I like my portrait, great size/shape, and reasonable amount of space in the back for things. The filtration setup is unremarkable stock but can be easily enough improved upon 🙂

Haven't decided where in the house I will set the tank up yet but here is some Chick-fil-A Polynesian sauce 😛

Ya I have a feeling it will end up there on my nightstand because I already have 3 tanks downstairs. The only bad part is hauling water upstairs so thank goodness the tank is small!

 

My husband got me the lamp as a gift and he leaves it on every night as I get home from work at 4am. I used to stumble around in the dark. A $12 dollar lamp ended up being one of my favorite things.

I have used gulf but never kpa. Really excited for it. 

 

They are doing a dive this Friday and the rock will arrive next Wed so now I get to wait...

Super glued a mesh back to the cartridge holder so I can drop media like carbon in it. A fancier person would have put a piece of acrylic though but it works!

 

I will use the cartridge in the front for the cycle and then cut off the carbon/mesh and stuff it with floss after.

Those were the dead ones I found but I am sure there are live ones if there are dead ones. Not sure what I will do with them. Sump some probably. I think most look like red emeralds though.

Agreed that is kind of what I meant. That many dead should mean some alive also. I think you will have a ton of life. Probably be finding stuff months from now.
