    its a big 20x20x25'' cubeish custom tank. rounded corners with skimmer and everything. I have a small 1.5'' N.wenn in a 2.5gal tank. The bioload is big. But i have a 2.5gal sump, Fuge, And a skimmer. This is the 2.5gal and its 28'' tall. With 2 13watt PC's over it. Thats before corals. Its a nano reef. Crappy pic but you get the idea on what he did.
  7. The Mantis Tank Thread

    Argent, it depends on the type of stompatopod. Most are fine in a glass tank. But ones that get over 4'' long such as the G.chiragra or O. scyllarus (peacock) needs a tank with glass over 8mm thick. I use a acrylic cube with fake back wall and built in skimmer for my peacock. Its 3/4'' acrylic. With acrylic stand and canopy to make it look good lol. In the pic sorry about the dirty glass. ~Brian

  15. my new 2.5gal pico (56k bewear)

    nahh i wont be doing a SCWD. I was thinking about fish today. I added some corals. Shrooms (bulls eye and spotted) Zoas (safe crakers and PPEs) and a sun coral with three heads on it lol. Now how would a yahshia goby do in the tank. It would be all by itself my lfs is crazy. 59.99 for the goby 69.99 for the goby and a super blood red pistol (unpaired) 110$ for a goby/pistol (paired) And thats alot of money. i was thinking about sexy shrimp but at 20.00 a pop thats alot lol. Then i was looking at panda gobys witch are super cute. What do you guys think. To fish or not to fish lol. I really love yahshia gobys also and is my sand bed deep nuff for them? The only good thing about my lfs is they has a 3day guarantee. ~Brian
