Hey everybody, My name is Ryan aka hopperdoggy and i have been into reefs for about 10 years now. I have always loved this website and although i didn't share any of my old tanks (i apologize) i am here to share my new pico that was set up almost two weeks ago. Right now it is probably halfway cycled. I got some some live rock and established water from my LFS to help kick start the cycle. I plan to do mosty zoas and palys with one beautiful chalice once its ready. Since the tank is so small i plan on getting some premium corals and letting them fully grow out. If I can control myself It should only have magacians, utterchaos and a mummy eye chalice (cant beat the classics) Here are the specs: UN rimless tank (3 gal i believe) aquaclear 50 modded into a fuge/ heater holder Ai prime HD (not yet hung) 25w cobalt aquatics heater livesand with about 2.5 lbs of live rock from my LFS I will keep this thread updated at things progress, until then ill continue to drool over all of your tanks...
Excited to share that I will be upgrading from the Fluval Evo 5 to an IM Nuvo 10! Not sure when the tank will get wet, but I thought I’d start a tank journal for suggestions. Lighting: AI Prime HD (suggestions for light schedule?) Flow: aqueon 600 (from my 5g, 150GPH) and Current Orbit 660 wave pump Sand: thinking Caribsea’s special grade reef sand so no sand blows around the tank Rock: trying to decide if I should wait until I find the perfect rock or use epoxy to make my own rock, suggestions? Filtration: custom caddy with phosguard, filter floss, and chemipure blue nano Livestock: 1 ocellaris from my 5g and a small skunk cleaner shrimp, may pick up a small clown goby or other small fish corals: most of the corals in my 5g will be used in my 10g. I’d like the 10g to have a large zoa garden, and some more monti cap and digi. Considering making this an anemone tank with just an anemone and maybe zoas? The 5g was a great learning experience, made some rookie mistakes (not dipping coral frags) and have some nudibranchs and I believe a zoa parasite that’s causing one of my colonies to close up. Pictures are of the 5g currently and the new 10g. Any suggestions for the 10g are much appreciated!!!

Fluvial EVO 12 gall about 4-5 months old tank, have some lps, zoas, and 1 frag of bird's nest and 1 frag of pocci. i use the stock light and i feel it's not enough at all. I don't see a grow at all plus the light doesn't bring any any coloration. planing to update lights LED. My budget is 250-300maximum i'm thinking about Ai prime HD, Kesill 160w or any other suggestions??? I would really love to have hydra but it's over my budget 350$ plus 70 for mount. Ai prime HD perfectly fits my budget, For kesill 160 you will have to bye controller which is additional 100$+ Do you have a good sps coral with Ai prime???? Do you have to have controller for kesil 160? Is there any other lightening suggestions within my budget ???
