10L Pico Softies Tank, another journey begins


Recommended Posts

I got a spare 10L tank and a red sea led 50. Started on 25 Feb 2023, I plan to set a low maintenance softies tank and maybe some inverts. Going bare bottom this time.

I went with a tidal 35, set max flow. I go slow with the light 12hrs from 9am. Blue max and white max on 10% for 4 hrs, ramp up and down for 4hrs.

I put 5 softies, toadstool, green hairy mushroom, purple anthelia, green devils hand, and an unknown mushroom after diatom bloo, receded.

It took almost 10 days of diatom covering the whole rocks, but nothing the snail can't handle.

Evaporation around 200 ml for 24 hrs, manually top up. I will make a drip top up for this.

That's it for now, until next update

I'm thinking this is going to be inverts only tank and no fish. I think I'm going for sexy shrimp. Do you guys have any inputs for the inverts?
