Pom Pom is pretty hardy and nice to look at.  Probably doesn’t grow as fast as chaeto tho.

The red and the green under that light pop so beautifully

😝 That makes me cringe b/c that’s the first thought I had when I added the red which made me second guess my decision to add it.

Definitely!  I think certain coral could look nice under these lights, like dendros maybe and RFAs.

I was surprised how different it looked as well!  The red really pops.

The algae is lovely, and beautifully planted too - looking great mate! I've got a few tiny pieces of gracillaria in the pico and it's dead hardy/thrives on neglect.

Definitely will be adding more color.  Ordered something last night that will hopefully complement what's in here thus far.

Glad to hear!  I had some in my tiny volcano pico for the last contest and it was super easy.  Both macro species in here should be hardy.

Thanks!  I really like the buceplant and UNS guys.  They have been really easy to communicate with and super supportive.  But I don't think their target demographic cares for salty tanks (yet at least). 😂

 

And on the flip-side, not sure if salty folks care that much about macro tanks either.  LOL.
