future 3.7 PICO tank

Recommended Posts

It had been a few years since I tried to do a 20 gallon SW tank. I got overwhelmed at the size and tore it down. I had an empty 3.7 gallon that used to house my betta before I upgraded him. So I thought I would make a small reef tank with only easy coral and a CUC. I have a submersible water pump coming on Friday and I already made RODI saltwater to put into it.

Looks like a nice start.  

 

A 3.7g with a few corals and some inverts is a great way to get back into things.  On a small tank like this I think that topping off daily is one of the most important things.  If you're not able to do that I would strongly consider an auto top-off.  

 

What's your lighting like?  That will play a role in which corals you keep.

I am excited. I tried to start up a 20 gallon long, but got overwhelmed because of the size. So I thought I would try again, but with something smaller.

Removed the back and everything out of the 3.7 gallon. Now I can use the whole tank.
