    3.6 gallon pico

    Hello, I just joined the forum because I’ve been working on a pico build for about a month and a half now. Here’s a quick rundown of the tank: -Dimensions are 18” long by 7” tall by 6” wide. -Aquaknight a029 led -box filter converted to in-tank refugium and to provide flow -25w hydor heater -5 lbs live rock livestock include -3 blue leg hermits -1 peppermint shrimp -1 emerald crab -1 trochus snail -1 nassarius snail -1 feather duster -various corals. The tank is fully cycled and a lot of corals have shown growth which is always good. Only problems I’ve encountered so far are flatworms (forgot to dip a leather) and I’ve got a mess of I believe dinoflagellates right now that I’m working on getting control off. Just had phosphates tested and they were safe but i might go back and have them retested.

    3.6 gallon pico

    Here’s a little update on my pico: Both hammers are doing great and I’m seeing growth from almost everything in the tank! Three zoas are popping off heads like crazy and some cyphastrea fragments are slowly but steadily encrusting the rock in the lower portions of the tank. My red acan has four heads that are finally peeking out from under the three main heads and my pink and green acan is finally showing another head! I’ve had a few questions about water changes recently and I will admit, I have only done two in the 2 months that this tank has been running. Parameters are stable and the corals are soaking up the nutrients. One big factor of this is the fact that I have no fish and I rarely feed the inverts in here and another is that the lid prevents a high rate of evaporation. I got a nice little green finger leather frag from a friend who’s nem was on the move and the frag was in the way so I got it for free. For now it’s in the center of the tank but once it opens up I’ll probably frag it and only keep a small peice and sell the rest so it doesn’t take over.

    Now I want one of these so bad 😫. They have free shipping until tomorrow and I’m about to blow $90 on something I don’t need and I don’t have a job right now. I love pico reefs

    WTB zoas and palys

    I’m trying to find some small frags of different zoas and palys. Preferably not geeen as I already have a few, mainly looking for brighter colors or mixed colors. I’m located in Greensboro, NC and am okay with shipping if the price isn’t super high

    3.6 gallon pico

    Tanks been doing well! At this point I’m kinda letting corals grow out while adding some inverts slowly. Only corals I’m still looking for are some higher end zoas that would make the tank pop, mostly reds, oranges and yellows. I added a female peacock tail anemone shrimp for $12 and two more blue legs so far for inverts. For coral I’ve added two more zoas and an Aussie gold hammer that I’m able to get for wholesale price ($20). I’m watching the size of things and once some of the larger corals outgrow the tank I will sell and replace them. I’ll have pictures up tomorrow

    3.6 gallon pico

    No problem, just let me know. They had a super nice, shallow 15 gallon breeder which would make a nice frag tank

    3.6 gallon pico

    I worked at a pet store for a while and there is a wholesale nearby so my manager would go handpick his fish so I could go with him if I was free. I’m still in touch with him and he lets me tag along. Just picked up a nice size gold hammer for $20 and a purple torch for a friend for $30 I’ll let you know the next time I’m headed to repticon

    Once I add rock flowers, if I see any harm done to them I will sell the shrimp or toss him in with my SA cichlids

    3.6 gallon pico

    No it is a a Seapora labeled as a 2.3 gallon but I calculated the volume to be 3.6 I know they eat corals so I’ve been keeping an eye on mine. So far I’ve had no problems but if anything does come up I’ll sell him
