  1. Hello and welcome to the hobby! @Jason2000 It seems to me that you have a Ricodea yuma. This is a soft coral from the mushroom coral family. They thrive in most conditions and grow relatively fast. Most of the time they split into more smaller versions of themselves.
  2. Thank you for the warm welcome !@Christopher Marks Right now, I am 50/50 if I want to glue it myself or order it custom made. If I order it custom made they are definitely making this notch and make the overflow in the right height since they did a perfect job the last time. The tank is going to be glass since nobody is working with acrylic in my country. I am searching for Y-shaped outflow I hope I find one soon. It's not a big deal if I start the tank without and add one later since a have 1-2 wavemakers laying around. Do you have any ideas about what to cover the bare bottom with? I want to make some kind of coral carpet, but I don't want GSP or Xenia.
  3. It looks though enough, I would put a 20-litre tank without a second thought. I don't think you would have any issues. However, It's your call. Good luck with the new build.
  4. I had some problems with zoas in the past, for some reason everything was thriving except them. I would recommend Candy cane, Duncan and Hammer corals since in my opinion they are almost bulletproof and unlike GSP and Xenia can't take over your tank or at least not that fast.
  5. Hello everyone, I have been in the hobby for some time, but I was forced to tear my last tank since I was out of the country. Now, I am back home and I decided that a home without a reef can't be a proper home( at least for me). So, I opened Sketch Up and drew some ideas. In the end, I decided that 18 gallons would be a perfect choice. I have some equipment from my old tank- the lights and the stand. So, this is my idea probably and I am going to order it at the end of the month. So far, I chose Red Starfish SQ-70 for a skimmer, I have some LED lights made by my LFS and decided to go bare bottom. The livestock is going to be mostly LPS, maybe some SPS, mushrooms, and zoas, maybe a shrimp. I don't think that I can fit some fish in this space. I am looking forward to ideas on livestock, aquascape, and anything you can imagine. How many gallons per hour return pump would be sufficient for flow?
