  1. Its been a long time since I've been on here, but life has finally slowed down enough for me to start dedicating more time to my hobbies. So to start I decided to finally post a thread on my 2 year old tank. All soft corals and nems. 6 RFA, 7 Mini Maxi, 2 bubble tip (clone) Current tank inhabitants: Red Firefish Purple Firefish Grey Head Wrasse (king of the tank ) Ruby Head Fairy Wrasse Leopard Wrasse Spotted Mandarin Banggai Cardinalfish Kole Tang Flame Angel Royal Gramma Azure Damselfish Maroon Clown (finally discovered the nems ) Cleaner Shrimp (going on 5 years old) CUC is an assortment of crabs and snails but I have 4 astraea snails that are over 4 years old. I also have 4 conchs that do an amazing job. This was taken yesterday, it had been almost 3 months since my last water change. I stopped trying to clean that far side, give the snails something to do lol. Shortly after a long overdue 30 gallon change. Surprisingly the tank has been in great shape over those 3 months and everything has been thriving. I don't dose or really even test for anything anymore. The only maintenance that was done was trimming the chaeto and changing filters every 3 days, but not always consistent. (first picture and both videos were taken before the change and I only cleaned the front and right side panel of glass). I feed LRS soaked in selcon once a day and all fish appear to be in great health. I don't run a skimmer, only carbon in a bag. My sump is just a simple fuge that has a crazy amount of pods and other good critters in it. Keeps the Mandy fat and happy. I also don't try and micro manage things, just set it in place and let it grow. I know its nothing too impressive, but I'm happy with it for the very low amount of maintenance it requires. I'll update with more info later on when I get some more time.
  2. Thanks, I didn't realize there was anyone else from Greenville on here.
  3. Like new, Current Marine LED 24"-36" - $85 shipped to continental US. Pm if interested. Thanks!
  4. I'm selling my used Nuvo 20 and stand. It was used for about a year and is in pretty good shape. No scratches that I can see. It does come with the pump but does not have any media baskets. Located in Greenville, SC Pm me if interested. Thanks!
  5. Nasty Algae ID

    Looks more like hair algae than Dino to me.
  6. whats your favorite fish for a nano tank?

    I really like blennies for their personality. Tailspot or Midas depending tank size.
  7. Refugium Question

    imho a fuge that small really isn't worth bothering with.
  8. Nothing I'm aware of. Maybe some macros? Also they won't care one bit about being on an isolated rock if they decide to wander.
  9. Protein Skimmer Yay or Nay

    I personally think skimmers are overrated. As long as you aren't having algae issues and you can keep you parameters in line, don't bother.
  10. Blenny and Goby Compatibility?

    What size is your tank? Tail spots stay under 3" if I'm correct. That pictus must be tiny... As far as blenny/goby compatibility, I have kept multiple of each in several different tanks with no issues. Blennies and gobies typically occupy a different area of the tank, so usually there isn't an issue. You shouldnt have any issues with your ywg and either of those blennies unless your tank is exceptionally tiny.
  11. FIrefish and Strawberry Pseude

    The dottyback will kill the firefish. They are known to be very aggressive in smaller tanks (minimum tank size is recommend at 30 gallons btw) and especially towards fish that have a similar size/shape.
  12. Oh come on now. You know good and well this could have happened to you on any of the major reef forums. I recently had something similar happen over on r2r so don't try and take it out on NR.
  13. I don't quite understand this... I've sold stuff for years online and have had countless people back out of deals for one reason or another. A deal is never a deal until you have payment in hand period. If this upset you, be sure not to try to sell anything on Craigslist lol
