180 gph seems like a lot; what's the gph on the pump you're using now?

Mine is currenrly 80gph but theyre all adjustable. Seeing that that model I mentioned earlier is unavailable everywhere i can find in online stores right now, i just ordered this tiny 70 gph hydor pump which should do the trick... And not leech into my tank XD

 

Also I cant get over this piece, so happy I got it 😍

Thanks I used to have one in the bowl, this one is from the same batch and has even more bubbles so I'm super happy now!

Gorgeous, love pure yellow polyps; I think the only zoa/paly which could convince me to keep them -in spite of my health- would be lemonheads.

Yellow is just such an underrated color in this hobby, oh and I love everything about this system lol.
It's just so clean and simple, tidepools were some of my favorite places to sit and hang out in cali and on the big island.

Thank you! Yesss the problem with yellow in this hobbt is that its very expensive I got lucky the yellow frag was only 20cad! The one in the pic above actually isnt mine, picked that one up for a friend.

Mine is pictured below! 

 

Also I picked up these green tentacled ones and my Norco gave me 2 new little heads

Managed to mod the asta into being higher by detaching all the components running it through this reptile light stand (which I modified) and re soldering the led looks pretty clean now and I can grow my mangrove and increase the intensity of the light!

What do you think?

The mod looks great !!! I love this tank,but it would be amazing for a little neon goby or clown goby. Tank is a little small but a little bigger water changes and you would be good !!

I was thinking the smallest I could do is a panda goby but for now I think my worms are enough entertainment for me 😂
