  1. Thanks seabass. I am thinking of running one of these as a moonlight for my jar but can't find any details about it , does this look ok? https://www.marinedepot.com/Reef_Brite_Flat_LED_Moonlight_Moon_Light_Fixtures_for_Aquariums-Reef_Brite-3M01048-FILTFIML-vi.html
  2. This is awesome! My Picopro jar should be getting filled next week, I look forward to following yours. Are you using the 2.5 gallon Anchor Hocking Montana jar?
  3. I have been thinking about an idea and Im curious if anyone has tried something similar. My tank is going to be on a table, which is flush to a wall, that sits directly above a furnace vent. I was thinking of rigging up some vent extenders up the wall to terminate at the bottom of my jar. This would place the back end of my jar over a gap between the table and wall, a gap of about 1.5", and would put it in the airflow when the heat or A/C kicks on. Im hoping this may eliminate the need for a heater in the winter, and help keep it cool in the summer. Will this do anything?
  4. I picked up a Tetrapump siphon just now from amazon, it should work well! Granite, not sure if I can make the CT market just yet, I need to ski too! The plan is to hopefully get water and LR in on the 22nd, If I cycle quick getting some coral in a week later should'nt be a big deal. Are you also active on BRS? I plan on updating there as well.
  5. Thanks Granite, I ordered the Hygger, if it performs poorly I will check the one you recommended. I am going to use one of the Reefsmart Picopro lights, which are made to fit on the 2 gallon Anchor Hocking Heritage jars, so I will be using one of those. If things go well I may try and retrofit the lid to fit a slightly larger container. I am in Boston, are there any LFS up your way that would be worth making the drive to? General question, are all you Pico owners making a mouth siphon with airline tubing for water changes?
  6. I have a few Targets near me that I was planning on checking out, hopefully they have some clear ones.... Walmart's are not very convenient to where I live, but I will make the drive if the Targets fail me!
  7. Thanks for the tip Coinee. I plan on going to multiple stores if needed to find the perfect jar.
  8. Thanks for the info Clown and Seabass. I had not thought of the optics of the curved glass keeping things hidden, that's awesome! I shall be going sumpless for sure now. Does anyone have experience with this style of pump? Are they really that much quieter than traditional pumps? https://www.amazon.com/Mylivell-Aquarium-Silent-Energy-Silicone/dp/B07BKQQKZQ/ref=asc_df_B07BKQQKZQ/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241886436424&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16003779420133917944&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9001999&hvtargid=pla-451736200720&psc=1
  9. Hello! All the awesome tanks here have inspired me to start a 2 gallon pico in an Anchor Hocking jar. I have one of the Reefsmart PicoPro lights on order after seeing how awesome it looks on Chris's tank. I have been thinking about drilling my jar to a 1/2 gallon Anchor Hocking, which would sit so the tops of the jars are the same height, in order to keep my heater and a powerhead (probably the Hydor Pico Evo, unless there are better options?) in it to un-clutter my display, and with the belief that the powerhead will be less noisy than a pump and bubbles. My main concern is evaporation, will it be increased with this setup, would I have to topoff more than once a week? My main reason initially for this setup was the lack of evaporation, I do not want to setup an ATO. I will keep the 1/2 gallon as sealed as possible with its lid. How much quieter will this powerhead be than a pump and bubbles? I have zero experience with either as I have only used HOB filters in the past. Finally does anyone know the diameter of the outlet on the Hydor Pico Evo? Thanks, I am very excited about this tank and keeping you all updated on it!
