Hey, nano-reef clan! It feels good to be back! I'm immensely excited to start another tank... yeah, I cant seems to venture far from this hobby.

 

I went with a 10 gallon Waterbox this time around and I'm extremely pleased with the craftsmanship. I don't really have any major plans in place as of yet. Just kind of wingin' it again.

 

Here is a shot of the tank so far and where I decided to put it. I thought It looked a bit anomalous sitting in the middle of my large bookcase, but the front of the tank sat flush with it and I have a plethora of oddities to surround it with :rolleyes:

 

Marine Depot hooked me up with some goodies to start it off.

Probably my favorite/most useful thing I have purchased in a long time.

Welcome Back Gram!! Love the tank and the decor. They complement each other well. I was just about to purchase the same model but stumbled across the tinitank thread.  Really love the scape too. What type of rock? and  where did you get the clowns?!

 

I didnt know Hanna made a new salinity tester! That may have to be my next purchase.

Off to a great start, I see.  Cute clowns and who doesn't love a nice hammer 😍

Thanks, Hype! I appreciate it. It's life rock shapes from caribsea. I have like 12 pounds of it left that I didn't use. I have no idea what to do with it, ha. The clowns came from my LFS.

 

The salinity tester is SO easy to use. You should definitely get one!

LOVE how this thread is shaping up already - solid photos.

 

from your pics so far, it doesn't look like you need any fancier macro lens.  of course, wanting one is a different matter.😄

Loving everything about this tank so far. That aquascape is incredible! I'll second @mitten_reef - with photos like that, you don't need the macro lens 🙂. What are you shooting with right now?

Nice!  Once the rock fills up with corals (funny how that happens :wink:), this will be very nice!

Thank you very much! ha, I miss my old lens. Wish i never sold it :unsure: I'm sure we all have a nice little list of things we "want" in our lives :coolguy:

I really appreciate it! I have about 10 pounds left over if you want some free rock. I'm currently using a Canon SL3 (Canon 250D).

More goodies! First time trying Red Sea Foundation. Anyone have any experience using their test kits and/or supplements? I've always used Salifert in the past. Wanted to try something different.

He most definitely does, ha. Been eating like it's his job twice a day. Who knows where he puts it :huh: I've only had him a few days so far, so hopefully he'll get to double cheeseburger status.

This is a tank done really well. I'm digging the movement in the scape and the mocha storm clowns are lovely. But the whole desk looks really good - the pinned bugs and glass domes are very cool!!
