Starting up a new build and I’m pretty excited about this one. I finally pulled off a zero water change nano tank over the last year so now I’m going smaller. Starting with some skeletons from my display refugium. Light is lominie which the form factor I love (tank is 3.5 gal I believe. Litterally says Glofish on it but it was free so….
 

Just adding a little bacteria and growing a little macro algae the last few weeks. Maybe I’ll find some cool shrimps at the lfs to add in a few more weeks if all is going well. No inhabitants at the moment. This is week 3.

Not sure what I’m gonna do with the final scape since the tank is so tall. Love that the light comes with a basic cover and a lens you can substitute to spread the light. Not bad separation at all. And a claimed 30 watts. I’m excited to try zoas or mushrooms. Can’t help thinking and getting ahead of myself haha.

That is a cool pico tank!

 

Im running a Lominie light over my pico and agree it’s a great light for the money. 
 

looking forward to seeing this progress.

Maybe a rock wall with some arches?
