Tired of the annoying aspects of a Fluval edge and wanting to do a jar reef to simplify maintenance I always look around while shopping looking at containers and ask “can I do a reef in that?” At target I found this terrarium that is almost perfect for the look I wanted. Tank: Target terrarium 2-3 gallons Light: Fluval led Flow: Air pump Heater: Top fin 20 watt beta heater live stock: Randall’s goby, Candycane pastor shrimp Plans: Add temp controller, lid, mount light.
Going on three months now. Finally has hit its sweet spot. Had some algae issues the first month and almost gave up on it. I did Lose some sps like birds nest and stylophora and Bali green Slimer. Those were added to soon . Will try them again eventually. The green Favia has really taken off now! Uses an ABI 12 watt Tuna Blue for lighting. So much easier than my 65 gallon set up that is now going to be a fish only system shortly!
