After 2 years in college and contracting with the USAF I finally have saved enough to move out into my own apartment which allows aquariums. So I decided to do a low maintenance acan, now reclassified as micromussa, and favia focused tank with a few other corals ranging from lps to sps spread about. Equipment: Tank: Mr. Aqua 12"x12"x12" cube, 7.5gal internal volume Light: Wavepoint Blade HO, for now, If an upgrade is needed this will change Heater: Cobalt Neotherm 50 Starting "foundation": Carib Sea Pink fiji sand and dry rock with Seachem quick start dosed for 2 weeks Filtration: Aqua Clear 20. Might have to look into a bigger or better HOB filtration system. The biggest issue is space along the back of the tank with a rim mounted light. Livestock: Currently a single blue Damselfish. This picture was taken the morning before the Diatom explosion. You can see some spots of diatoms beginning to form on the rocks directly below the fish. I just got a new phone so all of my old photos of the tank when it was initially setup got lost in the transfer. The tank is currently going through the first step of the "Ugly Phase" with a full swing diatom bloom.
