bolts.mania posted a topic in Pico Reef JournalsOK, well they might not be getting degrees but they are for sure helping me get mine! I am currently a Junior at a small school in Ohio and I have something no one else has, a pair of badass clownfish! I have been keeping reef tanks for about 7 years now and after all that time I finally feel like I'm avoiding rookie mistakes. I originally brought a 5 gallon tank to school my second semester of my freshman year and my whole plan was to make everything as simple (and cheap) as possible. Anyone in the hobby knows where this is going. I went too simple and too cheap right out the gate. I went bare-bottom, no mechanical filtration and even skimped on the live-rock. Long story short that tank did not survive past spring semester. I tore it all down and swore that I was done! Fastforward a year and my obsession with the hobby had been rekindled. I spent the last summer researching how I can make this tank 1) thrive long term, 2) personally enjoyable and 3) informative to others. As the only person on my campus to have a saltwater tank I felt like this time around I had to keep the up for myself but also for the people living with me. 5 months into that journey and people still come up to me and ask "you're the one with the fish tank in your room right?" Tank Specs Display: 10 gallon glass aquarium Lighting: 2 Par38 Rapid LED bulbs suspended using Coral Compulsion clamps Heating: Eheim 25W heater Circulation: Ecotech mp10 (OG model) Rock: Reel Reef Rock (10lbs) Filter: Aquaclear 20 w/Chemi-Pure Blue Substrate: Carib Sea Arag-Alive Reef Sand (-12Lbs.) Current Livestock A pair of Ocellaris clownfish 2x Sexy Shrimp 2x Nassarius Snails 2x Scarlet Hermit Crabs Soft Coral Green star polyps Radioactive Zoanthids Hulk Zoanthids Anemones Red rock anemone All my livestock, besides the female clownfish (bigger of the two), came from vividaquariums. I highly recommend them! It is the second time I have gotten shipments from them and they are world class and very professional. I ordered a pair of clownfish but one died within 12 hours and they were great about refunding me the next day! If you cannot tell, I love photography so if you're looking for a thread with some cool photos, stay tuned for more. I will be trying my very hardest to post every ~2-weeks about how tanks journey. The good, the bad AND the ugly! Thank you for reading.
