The Fool's 1.5g Tidepool Pico

Recommended Posts

TheRope

I will be tearing down my current 2 gallon long this weekend. And starting from scratch with this micro tide pool pico concept. 

Follow along to see how it goes i guess 🙂 

Dimensions of the vase are 12"diameter and 4" tall 

Ill be using live sand, and whatever dry rock i can find at my lfs this week. 

Stocking list will be very simple, but im hoping the overall design will make up for the simplicity!

Really cool! I had something almost identical for a short while during the container contest but but life got in the way and I took it down.

 

Really excited to see this one!

This is awesome. 

 

I just want to be upfront...I'm copying you. I even asked my wife and she said yes, feel free to do it. Well she actually said something like "do whatever the fxxx you want," something something "it's not like you listen to me anyway." So, her excitement has me even more excited to do this. I normally have to argue with her to get my way, so the fact that she was instantly in agreement is great. 😁

Hahahahahahahaha I convinced mine that this one would be more aesthetic for the living room than the last and take up the same amount of space so basically I'm just replacing it for something better... She loves this one 🙂

Lol, she said that. I jokingly said...🤷🏽‍♂️, Maybe your side of the bed. She seriously said, "well, there'd be plenty of room, since you'll be on the couch." She's so rude sometimes.

Well your tide pool is perfect! Hopefully I can do something nice and maybe my wife will love it. If not, then I'll stick with my original plan of spending all our money on tanks and coral so she can't afford to leave me 😁

So far the only condition ive had is "it has to be quiet" this ones Muuuch more silent that the last one you dont even hear the flow as its diffused going through the rocks!

Really like this. If you could add some kind of top off (gravity?) I feel like you’d have a complete system - or will the system tolerate salinity swings?
