    2 Gallon Pico Reef Jar - Amphipod Kingdom 💧

    That acan looks very happy! I've got quite a few pics going back to 2017. The last 1.5 years has seen very good growth. Especially considering I've made at least 20 frags from the hawkins echinata. My tank does not run with a heater and the temp usually fluctuates daily from 73-80 for the last 2-3 years. The lowest it has gone is 71 degrees and the highest has been 84. The circulation is provided with a 2w airpump which seems to provide adequate circulation and gas exchange. As far as maintenance I have never missed a weekly 100% water change I have also never tested the parameters in this tank except salinity.

    Yup I would say that will become impossible very soon. One thing I highly recommend is a pair of long surgical grade forceps usually found on ebay cheap. They will help you pick up and move frags around that fall to the bottom and also to clean the glass. Take a small piece of mr. clean (original) scrubber pad and clench it with the forceps and you can polish the glass really quickly that way and get around all the edges of the rocks easily. Mr. clean is all called melamine sponge and is available cheap in bulk also on ebay. I use it for everything it is incredible how well it cleans.

    Looking good I really love the magnification effect of the jar it makes everything pop so much better than my other tanks. Looking forward to seeing some coral action!

    Looks awesome Chris! Glad to see you back in the pico game!! I just hope it doesn't interfere with some of your netflix bingers. I'll definitely be following.
