  1. The cyphastrea and chalice adventure begins. One month old. 3 pounds of Carib sea base rock seeded with Aquamarine Canada copepods. One purple frilly gorgonian. One Bizarro cyphastrea frag. Stock light. All is well. I may have a goby pistol pair in a week or so from Raging Reef Montreal.

    Banasophia’s Evo V 🌀

    Hi all, It’s funny how many of us are talking about our spouses/significant others as we figure out whether we’ll be doing this new Nano-Reef challenge. It really shows what an investment of time, money, and care this hobby can be. This past week I discovered that my hubs actually supports me in this hobby more than I knew. Because of him, I’m back, and joining in on the fun. Here’s what happened: Early last week the hubs informed me it’s not his place to tell me I can’t start a new tank; it’s up to me to decide 🤔 hmm could be a good sign When I had my little temper tantrum in the contest thread, it was the hubs that suggested I could apologize and come back 😊 hopeful to think people understand and give me a chance... we all have our issues Hubs even told me last night he liked my tank idea 🚦seems like a green light to me! 😁 So, of course, I took all this as the go ahead to move forward, and went to pick up the tank today! I’ll be doing a Fluval Evo V, 5 gallon tank, in my home office. Here’s my condiment shot. Honey for the humans, coral frenzy for the corals!
  3. So I may as well join in the fun, I left the 365 Day Challenge tank in the office, the RSM is there and my Clowns are getting annoyed with me having my hands in the tank constantly. I also went ahead and purchased some corals that i have been watching for a long time now and noticed that the store has a Covid19 Sale I jumped on the sale. (Who doesnt like 25% off corals?) So I decided to have a play around with what i have at home and set up with spares. Tank: 5 Gallon L40xW20xH26 (15.75x7.75x1025) Light: undecided Heater: 25W Adjustable Flow: Hydor Pico Evo-Mag 180 with RFG Nozzle Themes: Euphylliadae Corals and Floating Reefscape Rock: 5 lbs Dry Baserock Sand: 10 lbs Samoa Pink So I painted the back black on this one, hopefully increasing the contrast with the corals that i will place in here, nice not to see any/much light spill as well The internal filter is in the shot to try and remove as much cloudiness from the water as possible
  4. So after a few years off from keeping a tank, the big bit again, and armed with the knowledge gained by making ALL the mistakes (open top, over feeding, under filtered, canisters, poor research, eels...) I set out to make a Pico reef that would tick all my boxes. So a 30cm cube was bought from a certain large river, as well as a tiny wave maker, a budget LED light and a minuscule preset heater. The five gallon format would allow for 100% water changes in a matter of minutes and for a couple of quid. The old tank was big (and annoyingly deep) enough to make maintenance a chore (especially with our growing family) so this was a major consideration. Endless topping off would be dealt with by the construction of a lid from acrylic. The original plan was to try and mimic Jake Adam’s Ecoreef Zero, bare bottomed, no filer, minimal bioload, however the plan changed slightly to accommodate a pistol/ goby pair, so sand happened. Not just any sand though- 1.5 kilos of Limpopo black sand, which gives a minimalist look. As this was now starting to go the reef route, rather than the original minimalist ethos, some nice branching rock was procured from my lfs along with my first flexible water carriers full of salty water. pic below is a couple of months in.

    5G Home Reef

    Hi all, So after today fighting with the office tank and me generally feeling down, I have had a chat with the Mrs and we both agree that we miss having Hantu at home (she hasn't seen Puaka yet) and that a single tank would be best so we have started setting up the old 5G Cube. Tank: 5 Gallon Cube Light: Asta 20 LED Heater: Mini Titanium 50w Filter: Hydro Ripple HR450 Flow: Hydor Pico Evo Mag 250 So first things first the Aquascape, I cannot take any credit was all the Mrs. She has done a great job with this. I was busy hiding the heater in the HOB filter And faffing around with mesh and lids So the plan is to get this wet tomorrow, move some rock and media over from the RSM. Probably keep back some water from tomorrow's change. Stocking plans, macros and soft corals most likely. Keep it simple.

    Project: Kitchen Reef

    Our story begins in 1989. Boy works in LFS. Girl works in LFS. A year later they start dating and soon after that their fish rooms merge. Fast forward a bit. Boy & girl have some children, and many aquariums together. But the economy collapse, boy & girl lose almost everything (except their children), and go on a long aquarium hiatus during their recovery. Fast forward to today. Boy & girl have one more kid (now making three). They are recovered from old economic hardships. And they miss their shared hobby. ... The kitchen is the social center of our crowded little home. It's a very small kitchen, and space is at a premium. But my wife voiced to me some interest recently that she'd like to have an aquarium again, specifically a reef, and very specifically she was interested in the Fluval Evo 5 (no sponsorship, just a sincere personal preference on her part). And she wanted this right smack in the middle of the kitchen countertop so everyone could see it frequently throughout the day. She was out of town yesterday with the kids for a dog show, leaving me alone to embark on a project. I headed over to the LFS (The Fish Room in Raleigh) and they got me set up with their last Fluval Evo 5, a compact heater, some live sand and live rock, and a jug of salt water. Wife came home last night and saw this in the kitchen. I got her sincere reaction on video, which I'm cutting together with some other footage for my new YouTube channel. I've not upgraded any of the stock components (yet?) on this tank. And no, I don't intend to stock with LPS/SPS. I have to say, though; I can't help but feel a little bit like Buck Rogers combing back to the hobby after a long hiatus. The technology and products have changed. Certainly the pet industry has changed and moved far more toward big box stores. I'm really fortunate to have a good shop near my home. I don't think I would have even bothered with a project like this if I didn't have a good shop nearby.
  7. My tank is two months old, and I was finally starting to add my cleanup crew. Then the worst happened... My buddy (who got into this at the same time I did) completely jumped the gun, added fish before his tank was ready and he lost a bunch. He decided this hobby was to much for him so he handed the remaining fish to me, so I have livestock introduced way earlier than I am comfortable with. And it's not stuff I'd ever want in a five gallon setup, so after I gain a little experience I'll be upgrading to a larger tank. Here is break down of my tank as it sits: CUC: 2 red leg hermit crabs 2 blue leg hermit crabs 1 Margarita snail 1 Nassarius snail The biggest bristle worm ever that hitchhiked over from live rock Inherited livestock and reason for needing a bigger tank so urgently: 2 Ocellaris clownfish 1 Condy anemone 1 bleached to all heck Acro SPS The clowns are both younger and only just over an inch in size, so the tank seems to be fine for now, as they play and dance in the waves and run around the rocks, but I spoke to LFS / did some research here, and I won't be able to keep them in this tank for much longer as they will most likely more than double in size. The Condy must be a strong breed. He survived that other tank of dred, the trip over to my place, and now my young tank and he seems to be taking it like a champ. Right now he's mad because my power head failed and I just ordered a new one rush shipping! Not enough flow in the tank with that stock pump. The Acro SPS is all but gone. It was green when it was purchased, but by the time I got it there is just the tiniest little bit of green at the base and the rest is almost bone white... I'm not sure if anything is even left. I am right in the middle/end of my Diatom bloom (those little crabs really went to town on it) and the diatom algae has started growing on the poor acro. I'm not sure I have the ability to bring this thing back if it's even possible. Some advice would be appreciated. Hardware: Top Fin 5 Gallon Glass Aquarium Stock filter pump (90 L/h so need to replace soon) 21 watt Hygger Blue White LED NICREW Submersible Aquarium Heater (in anticipation of the larger tank) Hydor Koralia Nano I'm using activated carbon and zeolite crystals as well. I did a seven day round of Seachem Stability when I first put those inherited fish int he tank, and use Seachem Prime to help keep levels stable until my tank can mature a bit more as adding these little guys and gals has definitely thrown off my plans. Also ignore the cheesy background. I put it up because one of the clown fish kept seeing his reflection in the back of the tank and wouldn't stop chasing it and hitting the glass... those guys are very strange.
