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!
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.
Hi there I stubled upon this challange and thought it was the PERFECT excuse for an office tank. I am playing with dryscape right now. Tank is not at my office yet. I want to get all the pieces together first then take it in. Is seeding from existing tanks ok? So here is my entry into the challenge Tank Fluval Evo V Pump Cobalt 606 Heater ? Lights Stock + 2 blue led strips Fliter area Intank media basket with floss and cpe in the very bottom a bit of a block of marine pure ATO Will be some sort of diy with the stock pump from the tank. Stock will be flowery I hope (Guys I am not very creative) Rock flowers a plenty Zoas I may do a small torch or other euphilla to act as the "tree" in my flower garden. Maybe a little piece of cyphastrea once I figure out how the light really is.

Home, hopefully, to a loveable N. Wennerae. A stomatopod from my wonderful homestate of Florida. They make lovely pets. I highly recommend you acquaint yourselves with these True Facts and this comic.
