    Desktop Micro Reef

    Tbh I think putting a top on it would be better than an ato. Manual top off should be easy with a pipette lol. For livestock small inverts like small shrimps, Pom pom crabs, and things of that nature should work. For corals just be careful because of territorial issues and growth space. Doing a frosted background might look nice, but I’m not sure if the overflow pieces would look weird with it.

    Skinny glass tank recommendations?

    They probably are, originally they were mr aqua but then they stopped making them/selling them ? I dunno what happened but the same tanks mr aqua sold are now sold under other brands lol

    Skinny glass tank recommendations?

    6 gallon aquatop, 24 x 6.7 x 9 about. Fits perfectly.

    Controversial: Goby in a 5 gallon?

    You could trade in your coral banded shrimp for a blue or gold coral banded shrimp, same genus but smaller species.

    Controversial: Goby in a 5 gallon?

    A small goby will have a smaller bioload than the shrimp, should be fine.

    Leaf fish in 20 long???

    Should be fine, they can be a bit messy so keep an eye on nutrient levels.
  7. Well we’ve more or less killed off the stony corals of the Caribbean already

    Jigsaw's 10G Coldwater Build!

    Glad to see coldwater tanks are still around, are there still people selling coldwater livestock?

    What Fish Should I Get?

    Small benthic fish like Gobies and blennies.

    Fish Compatibility (Royal Gramma & Azure Damsel)

    Chrysiptera damsels can be especially aggressive, but many fish will often harass new additions. Capturing the established fish and keeping them in a separate area and allowing the new fish to acclimate can work, sometimes changing the aquascape will work too. If all else fails you may have to catch the damsel and return it.

    Why are purple monsters so expensive

    Kinda odd, you can get them for way cheaper pretty easily. They must be overcharging I guess

    Blenny species

    Ekemblemaria species would be my best guess, kinda hard to say. Whatever it is, it’s most likely a sporadic import which might make it hard to find for sale.

    Nano Fish with Small Mouths Feeding Issue

    I’ve had this issue with small fw fish, usually I’d turn the flow off, feed any boisterous fish, then put crushed pellet foods on the surface and force them to sink. You could try live foods as well. YCG May take a while before taking prepared, it’ll probably hunt pods until then.

    Sounds good, there’s tons of cool inverts you could add. In addition to cleaner shrimp you could add small snails, anemone shrimp, Pom Pom crabs, and others.

    Slight confusion with stocking levels

    With you’re filtration, territory is the limiting factor. A group of threadfin cardinals and a blue assessor would work, if you don’t experience any nutrient issues for a while then you could try clowns. Wouldn’t put a dwarf angel in a 30 with so many others though. Also add the clowns last, as they’re the most territorial.

    Stocking for 14g Peninsula Ideas

    Possum wrasse and a cool benthic fish would be cool

    black ocellaris clownfish

    If they’re still spawning they’ll be worth quite a lot, might have to look around marketplaces of forums to see previous asking prices

    Unique Stonogobiops nematodes (hybrid?)

    Probably a genetic thing or it grew an extra after an injury. Neat specimen

    Wrasse: Cirrhilabrus Lanceolatus?

    The lunatus is a better deal, they’re still more uncommon than the Isosceles, which is now the most common member of that entire complex. Their also the best fairy wrasse for a smaller tank because of their small size and somewhat cryptic nature.

    What Happened To The Blue Spotted Jawfish?

    They’re probably collected seasonally

    Mixing Different Breeds

    Depends on the variants and/or species you want to mix and what setup they’ll be going in.
  23. 1.0reef


    I’d avoid an urchin in such a small tank, they tend to just uproot frags and eat coralline anyways lol. Same goes for the emerald, they can get kinda big and become annoying. Smaller/more peaceful crabs like Pom Pom crabs or porcelain (anemone) crabs are great. Theres tons of other cool nano inverts, especially shrimp. If you want coral that doesn’t become take up too much space you could stick to encrusting species.

    16 Gallon Stocking Question

    Wouldn’t recommend that, even if the dragonet is eating prepared foods it’s better to have a larger system or at least a refugium with them imo. Considering you have a skimmer, you should be fine adding a small species of goby that is less likely to be bullied by other tankmates, shrimp Gobies and their symbiotic pistol shrimps are always great additions.
