    Hm, it couldn't hurt to try. You can always add a power head later, and at ~$20 it's not a terribly expensive addition. I will say that if I was going to to go back, I would get the more powerful Cobalt (Mini MJ-606) that is the same size, that may be capable of creating enough flow without the power head. Good luck and let me know how it turns out!

    At least you can put your hands in the tank without fear of punchy death...lol...I bought myself a fancy extend-o-scraper ?

    Super cool build, following along! Looking forward to seeing more progress!

    Raindog's 20 L Not So Cheapo

    Still fighting turf algae, so I began H2O2 dosing to help the crabs, and myself! Other than that, everything is doing well, thinking about adding a second fish in...maybe a pygmy hawk fish?

    Hahaha, I wanted to update this thread and realized I didn't take a fresh photo after I finally scraped the glass in this thing...can you tell it is my "pest" or "junk" tank? Lol Everything is doing well, I moved some Pandora zoas from my 20 gallon in, and we got some Mohawks to go with them as well. Bam Bam is doing well, just as clicky and sassy as ever! So, how bad do you let your glass get? The nano flipper was no match for this growth, I had to go full razor blade!

    Congratulations on a well deserved TOTM!
  7. Here's a recent photo of our 20 gallon long: And this is our Gonodactylis Smithii, but we call him Bambam!

    Why are purple monsters so expensive

    I suppose it is time to update this thread as well! Bambam thrives, fairly certain he just finished a shed. Hadn't seen him for about a week or so, then he popped up to say 'hi' the other day! I love this little reef, it seems to thrive despite my complete lack of maintenance...funny how that works, huh? The frog spawn has a couple baby heads growing (which is odd, I figured they split heads like the other euphyllia?) Zoas are spreading slowly but surely, and just yesterday I pulled a plug with Pandora morphs on it from the 20 gallon and threw them in. Bloody things had grown off the plug in force after only a month! (By force, I mean there are over a dozen polyps grown onto my rock work!) I figured my little "pest" tank would be a perfect place for them ?

    Raindog's 20 L Not So Cheapo

    [End of] July FTS Update! We got a nice piece of Green Stylopora from a friend as payment for maintaining his reef while they were out of town! Also got a few chips of Grinch (?) Montipora that I have plugged up on the frag rack! Other news, we have a Yuma baby! Woot! We did lose our Scooter Blenny, Scoot McGoot. Despite maintaining a healthy pod population, it just wasn't enough. Also had one other casualty, the Green Bali slimer we picked up a RAP...can't win them all! I think I put too much putty on it when I attached it to the rock work, lesson learned. The Red Slime Remover did its job and we have been free of cyano for some time now...onto the next challenge, turf algae! Just recently released a small horde of emerald crabs. I figure once they have done their job, they will make nice meals for our Mantis in the Waterbox. Other than that...the things continue to grow! Grow Grow Grow! I guess I don't have a photo showing the frag rack...soon to come!

    Why are purple monsters so expensive

    That's insane! They grow super fast too, I bought a plug with 6 polyps on it (for $30?), 3 or so months later...they have multiplied to at least 3-4 dozen and are starting to overrun my other zoa colonies. They are in the out-of-focus part of the photo, but you can see where they have matted together with the dragon eyes and are starting to grow over the fruit loops. These things are a plague...a beautiful plague, but still a plague! *Edit: If you live in central Florida, I'll break you off a few polyps on a plug for some $$$!

    IM Nuvo 10 + Kessil A80 light intensity ?

    I run my A80 at 100% intensity and about 20-30% color over a 7g cube. Been running for 2+ months like that and I see some pretty good growth!
