Hello all! It has been some time since I was here in my “Biocube - A very Hard Journey” journal. Though I have been following, and appreciating everyone here, with their knowledge, and communication! I am beginning, or have begun a new pico tank. I am still getting logistics down, but I just put water in the tank yesterday. I built an aquascape with pieces of reef saver dry rock (10 bucks for 3 large pieces that I broke into smaller), which I will post pics of the process & final product. Aquascape - 2lbs. Rock Flow - 90 GPH SICCE Micra Pump 158 gph Sicce Micra Plus pump Heater - Still looking at heaters (but right now, the temp is keeping a steady 79 w/o one) Hyggar Mini Betta heater 25w Lighting - Kessil’s A80 Tuna Blue w/ controller (ordered, soon to be on tank) Thanks for visiting ☺️
The custom container pico contest has me excited so I thought I would start a tank journal! This tank has been running since December of 2016. Here's a brief rundown of what's going on in here: Equipment: Marineland Contour 3 gallon aquarium Neotherm 25 watt heater Stock pump replaced with Aquatop NP-302 Stock lighting replaced with NanoBox Mini Tide +M Chemipure blue nano and filter floss in the (modified) media caddy Livestock: Halimeda Galaxaura Botryocladia Hypnea pannosa Gracillaria hayi Fat-head "dendro" Tiny pink "dendro" Branching orange "dendro" Phyllangia Americana Manicina aureolata Leptoseris (orange and brown) Echinophyllia (teal with pink) Echinophyllia (grey/purple with green) Lime green and purple Favia "Honeysuckle" Lithophyllon "Freak hair" Lithophyllon "Blue fire" Psammacora "Emerald rim" Psammacora Blue/purple Rhodactus Metallic green Rhodactus Green star polyps Pom pom Xenia Galaxea "Spiderman" Stylocoenellia "Desert Oasis" Cyphastrea Stomatella snails Collonista snails Asterina starfish 1 Astrea snail 1 nassarius snail Picture is pretty accurate, for a potato camera. The stylo on the right is more pink, the mushrooms on the bottom are more blue-ish, and the favia is more of a yellow-green, but this is pretty close! I like picos for keeping NPS. You can see the orange branching "sun coral" and the pink dude I am working on rehabbing before I mount to the rockwork. I just feed and then do at least a 10% water change. Right now I'm feeding those two outside the tank in a bowl but in a few more months I hope to get them on the rocks.
