  1. Hi folks. Here is my entry and tank journal for the Creative Container Pico Contest! Picked it up at a thrift store for $6. Measured the water volume and it comes it at 1.9 gallons. No real plans as far as stocking goes. Really excited. Good Luck Everybody.

    Cirque Du Reef

    Major Rookie alert! First reef ever, first pico ever, first contest entry ever! Over ambitious? Maybe scared I'll mess up? Hell Yea! The hobby caught my interest around a year back, thanks to @Shean and I've only learnt as much in theory about it. Super excited to get my hands dirty and learn more. Equipment So far: • my 2 gallon oddly shaped jar that looks like a circus tent • Power head for flow and movement • No heater needed considering I stay in India. Need I say more? • Hoping to receive our ABI tuna blue 12W lights soon since we had to get it shipped from the United States Concerns: • Getting our hands on equipment and corals since the hobby isn't as wide spread and supported in the country. • Clarity of the contents inside the jar due to the lovely shape I've chosen impulsively • Temperature control • Water Chemistry Will try and keep the updates as frequent as possible. Suggestions, criticism and tips more than needed and welcomed! P.S: fav condiment? Maggie tomato ketchup because it's different
  4. OK, Decided to enter the Creative Container Contest. Didn't think I'll have time, but I managed! Went to AC Moores and decided on a large wine glass. I hope no one else chose this, I didn't even go through all the entries yet to see what's been done (if it's already done, let me know and I'll find something else!). Snapped a quick pic at work. I probably won't get to fill it until this weekend since I am dog sitting. But it's a start! So far I got: Wine Glass container 20 lbs Argonite sand (don't worry, the bulk of it will go into my FW tank once I convert it!) Air stone (probably won't use a powerhead) Par38 Bulb that I already have (which may be an overkill in this set up)
  5. ***project is on pause for now 10/30/17*** So here it is, my Creative Container Pico entry... Got this Jar from a friends' mother, it has been stored in her garage for several years now-I noticed it when I was helping repair damage from Irma-and she happily gave it to me. I don't use condiments so I took the pic with some smoked burbon simple syrup-Though that might be considered a condiment for alcohol Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, considering all Favias or Acans, it's all still up in the air. Going to use a 40 gph pump for circulation which I already have Ordered a 15w Par LED bulb from ebay Hoping to grab some live rock at the lfs this weekend Jasper-the noisy rescue kitten-decided to check the jar for leaks Jar holds 2.3 gallons of water Planning to design some sort of base and hood That's all for now...
  6. Hi all! This is my way of saying: I AM GOING TO JOIN THIS CONTEST! Yes. I'm going crazy over that decision. So, i haven't yet been able to measure my bowls size. It's an old bowl I used to keep plants in during the last three years, it's been empty since just before summer. But it won't be for much longer! Maybe it's going to fail horribly. But yeah. I was trying to figure out what to do with the bowl. Candles? As requested, some favorite condiments: And, first inhabitant? I will update this post later with my stocking plans, the plans for flow and lightning and other needed stuff. I just needed to make this post so i would stop wondering if i should or shouldnt join! -------------------------------------------------------- My tank is exactly 1.6G, which means it's exactly 1/10 of my DT! That makes me crazy happy! As of tomorrow: 25W hydro heater Compact flowpump from Eheim (more info tomorrow) Some pieces of dry Rock I had lying around, combined with a few mini pieces of live rock rubble from my main display. Bactostart and ghostfeeding to start the cycle (anyone have more info on how to do this in a pico? Should that take as long as an original startup?) Light: indirect light from DT (will be updated with a regular ledbulb next week, and later hopefully with a Par38 from Wish) Stocking plan: -frag from my mushrooms in DT -green button frag from DT -xenia frag from DT -candy cane from DT -GSP carpet on my pump (fragged from DT) Any tips on fragging? I ordered tweezers and razorblades, but have no experience at all! In the future I really want some zoas in there as well Inverts plan: 1 pompom (if I can find it!) 1 turbo from DT
