I've seen some beautiful Monti's on N-R. I'm a bit surprised that there's no "lovers" thread dedicated to them yet (not through my quick search anyway). So here goes some of my current Monti's: Unknown - neon, metallic orange, plating with interesting ridge and nodules, blue polyp under certain light (ID help if you can) Leng Sy cap: from @Cultivated Reef "Possibly?" Tequila Sunrise - orange polyp, green plate with some upward growth ridges. A small frag of starburst-type: red plate with yellow/orange polyps. Also a red digi frag next to it. Experimenting with Mystic Sunset on the back wall. Share your favorite Monti's here!!!
So here it is. I built this tank from some free shelves I got from a couple on Craigslist. It’s 12x12 inches. I have a 250gph return and a 110 gph in the display for flow. An aqueon 10w heater, coralview 3” smart fan and inkbird to run them. Smart auto top off with a 5g rodi storage container. Filtration is tanken care of by foam, filter floss, chaetomorpha and an ns80 reef octopus skimmer. Great lil unit! There is around 9lbs live rock and a 2” sand bed. The tank is lit by a nanobox mini. Big upgrade from the Chinese box light. Livestock includes a oscilaris clown, pajama cardinal, Randall’s goby, margarita snails, astrea snails, electric blue hermit, red hermit, and left handed hermits. Corals. Chicken pox discoma and a red and blue dot disco. Green branching hammer. Blue branching hammer. Green octospawn. Eagle eye, gobstopper, and Rasta Zoas. Montipora setosa. Sunset montipora. Green palys and utter chaos paly. Birds nest. Some sad ass trumpets and acan that burned up with a crappy Chinese box light. And a green and purple Favia. I have had a lot of success’ and failures with this tank. I have lost fish,inverts ands corals. I have also brought corals back from the dead. I fought and beat bubble algae and bryopsis. All in all this tank has been a rollercoaster but I feel like I am finally getting on the right path. I do weekly 3-5g water changes. Clean the glass daily and test weekly to bi weekly. Hope yall like like what you see and happy reefing.
