    New fuge light setup - biocube29

    I bought the same ACKE lights after looking at this thread, and I've been really pleased. It's very bright. I bought it for my Aquaclear 70 HOB chaeto chamber and it's been growing like wild. I've been cutting the cheato in half every 2 weeks. Hope this helps

    20 high or 20 Long

    Depends. A good light will cover a 20H better than a 20L. You might need two smaller ones for a 20L, which is often more expensive. That said, I vote for the 20 long.

    Skunk Cleaner Shrimp

    I can never tell if my cleaner shrimp wants to clean his neighbors or eat them. I've seen him do both, that sneaky little scrimp

    Natural Filtration

    My tank is run the same way, all natural, and it's been a great experience. I love the simplicity. I run an aquaclear HOB refugium with chaeto.

    Disappearing sand

    Thumb over the hose, return the rest of the sand after washing as Clown79 said.

    Radion Xr-15 users what are your settings?

    What height from the water? 22% can be very different from various heights. I have XR30 on my 20gal, running at 35% for 8 hours on the deep reef natural setting. It's about 1.5 feet from the surface. Going from 30-35% really shortened the necks of my zoas. Hope it helps

    Never Leaving Home Again??? - Mandarin Injured

    That's a bummer it's amazing what happens when we leave our tanks unattended for a short time. Mine always goes haywire when i leave for the weekend. Hope for a quick recovery!

    Jasmine the Green Spotted Mandarin. I've had great success with this fish so far. She's been with me for 6 months now. She lives off Nutramar Ova prawn roe, fed every 2/3 days.

    You did a good job of capturing the aura of the tailspot blenny with that choice! Cedric the tailspot blenny approves.

    Brittle star attempting a daring escape from the chaeto chamber. Chaeto has been growing out of control with the 24 hour photoperiod. I cut the clump in half and a week later, it's already doubled in size. The king of detritus - the fighting conch is my favorite part of the cleanup crew. He will bury himself in the sand and disappear for a few days when the workload is low. Cleaner shrimp is always a fun inhabitant to have around. Free manicures!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! The tank is really hitting its stride now. My main struggle is to balance feeding the corals vs feeding the algae! I resisted getting a clownfish for so long, but I'm so happy I did. They're so personable and entertaining. Mine will nibble on my fingers and follow me around the tank.

    Got some cool shots of my clownfish fanning out his cave!

    Newton the Clownfish enjoyed his reign as king of FLARGUE REEF for a few weeks, but the Talbot's Damsel has taken over. There were some bitter fights, but after 10 days, things have mellowed out. The Clownfish now shows submissive behavior by doing a headstand to avoid any confrontations. Surprisingly, my Tailspot Blenny has firmly held his ground against the damsel, and will jaw back and forth, mouth to mouth with the damsel.

    Check out my new tank! It's a 20 gallon long and has been running for 8 months now. Trying to keep it simple! Equipment includes an Aquaclear 50 HOB refugium, Radion XR30 lights, a couple powerheads, and a heater. My tank inhabitats are a Black Perc Clownfish, Tailspot Blenny, Green Spotted Mandarin, and a Talbot's Damsel. Hope you enjoy my pics!
