  1. Hi everyone, thanks for visiting my journal. 🙂 I got started in the hobby to take my mind off of work stress back in February 2018, and set up my Biocube 16 on 3/3. I was immediately hooked and started my second tank, my IM Nuvo 10, on 6/16. I really appreciate all of the knowledge and support I’ve found here. This hobby, and the community, got me through a tough time in my life, so thank you for that! I’ve learned so much in the past few months, and I’ve enjoyed the beauty and wonder in everyone’s tanks. 💛 Recent full tank shots: Biocube 16 (stock LED lights), February 28, 2019 Daylights Beauty Lights Blues Nuvo 10 (AI Prime) Favorite Pics: Biocube 16, Taken 4/23/19 Biocube 16, Clowns & Kenya Tree, Taken 5/17/19 Current Biocube 16 Setup, as of 1/26/2019: Light Schedule, Stock LED Lights: LC1 11 am - 9:00 pm LC2 10 am - 9:30 pm LC3 6 am - 12:30 am  Chamber 1: Coralife skimmer, temp probe, false floor still intact, tab between chamber1 & 2 still intact (I recommend keeping the tab intact as it supports the Coralife skimmer if you ever want to use one) Chamber 2: Stock media rack, filter floss, Chemipure Elite (for up to 25 gallon), 2 sacks of matrix media Chamber 3: Cobalt Neotherm 50W heater, Chill Solutions chiller pump and hoses, Purigen (for up to 100 gallon) which is sitting in the spot where the small black sponge filter was (if you take out the sponge, save it in case you want it in the future) Original Journal Pics, from August 2018: Equipment Ideas for Beginners: When I first set up my tank, it was difficult to figure out what I really needed to run my tank, so I thought I would post my suggestions here to give people a nice starting point and maybe help you avoid the trial and error process I went through.

    Coco worm care

    I recently got a coco worm (Protula bispiralis) from my LFS. They convinced me that it’s easy to care for them and so I bought it. After doing more research I realized I really shouldn’t have bought it, as my tank is new and I’m relatively inexperienced. I’m wondering if any of you have experience caring for coco worms, specifically protula bispiralis, and if so, could you let me know? If you know anyone else who has cared for them, could you tag them in this post? I’d love to have a few people that I could contact and ask if (and when) I run into problems with my worm. My care regiment for it it has been feeding two or three times a week with either reef roids or two little fishies marine snow. I do weekly water changes, sometimes bi weekly. It seemed pretty happy for the first few days I had it, but now I find that it’s retracted about ~50% of the time that I see it (it’s possible that it’s out much more often than that, I’m just basing that number on when I walk by/look at the tank).
  3. 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.
  4. Hi everyone! I just ordered a sun coral and a white scroll algae from ebay, so I thought it would be a good time to start officially journaling my progress with my NPS tank. Here are the current and planned specs; Filtration; Aquaclear 20 (100 GPH) with activated carbon, Sun sun internal filter (650 GPH) no media, planned Aquafuge2 small refugium (2.6 gallon, unsure about GPH, filled with macroalgae and live sand). Nutrient export: Macroalgae, 2 x 40% water changes weekly Light: ABI Par 38 tuna blue bulb, 23 watts (generic reef pro light on refugium...it adds 120 par at 14 inches below the water level) Macroalgae (tank): Caulerpa sp (something feathery), White scroll algae Corals (Tank): Sun coral, black sun coral, Red tree gorgonian (in a cave to prevent algae overgrowth), Leptogorgonia purple sea fan Other inverts: Hermit crabs, snails, Bam bam (the pistol shrimp), elephant ear sponge (in a cave to prevent algae overgrowth), fan worm? Fish: Little Dude (the royal gramma), maybe some sort of cardinalfish? Refugium life; Caulerpa prolifera, Gracilaria sp, copepods, rotifers? Feeding regime: Going to start with seachem phytoplankton and zooplankton twice a day for the filter feeders, and frozen food daily for the sun corals and fish. Will eventually replace the phytoplankton with live phytoplankton mix, and the zooplankton with reef roids. Will also broadcast some live phyto into the tank water before bed. And here's a picture of the tank! And here are pictures of my plans. The first one is for the main tank, the second one is for the refugium; Hope you enjoy following along! Don't hesitate to give your thoughts on my tank 🙂 PS...this will probably take a few months to get fully set up...the refugium and the live phytoplankton are expensive to initially procure (though they are high quality and last a while). I will post pictures at least once a week.

    NPS LPS

    Hi, I've been keeping a nano tank for 2 ish years now, and the LFS here is awful, so i kind of dont even ask for advice there, Anyway, a month ago I bought a Sun coral there, they had only 2 colonies, the one I bought and another one, the colonies were really bad, with most of it already dead, i went to that LFS last week, and the other colony melted away, My colony is still going, I feed it every other day, but ive seen online that some people feed 2 times a day O . O Is it ok to feed it 3 times a week? two weeks ago i bought something i think is a dendrophilia, i wasnt going to buy it, but the head is so huge and it looks so cool, i feed the big head one everyday, but only a little, Does anyone have something similar?and what is your feeding schedule? i want to know how many time it takes for the dendrophilia to pop another head. Thanks.
