    Canister filters on nanos... who's doing it?

    You can use Brightwell Xport cubes in the canister. Extremely porous. If you use the NO3 and/or PO4 cubes you also get nitrate and phosphate control on top of biological filtration. ^^ This. I didn't clean the canister for 2-3 months - there is a nutrient build-up for sure which is excellent for doing a tank transfer so that the livestock is not going into a sterile environment.

    Or salinity change. Although I think with a PO4 change or Alk - you start to see STN.

    @markalot Those are 2 show colonies! wow. Are they differently colored or is that just a camera thing? Higher light makes those tips branch out and show the pink. I agree- the colors look great Teeny.

    Congratulations! I love how simple this tank is. Your bookcase is just amazing and a good foil for the tank. Love the picture of your cat next to it.

    Zoanthids are not growing well

    You might have pods irritating it - you could do a quick swish or a dip with 50% peroxide and tank water. 3 minutes tops. - swish it around or turkey baste it. The colony will be pissed off for at least a couple of days after but it looks already pissed. Notice what if anything falls off in the dip.
