ChristopherDido posted a topic in Aquarium JournalsHi All This is a Thread Dedicated to a Middle School Reef Club tank here in St. Louis. So Please watch language 🙂 Back Story, I setup a Saltwater tank at my house last year and would show students pictures of my tank and they were jealous we did not have a tank at school. So I said Why not? There is an amazing LFS owner here in St. Louis and he got me an amazing deal on a Used IM 20 Fusion. He Loves teachers and especially those that want to teach more about the Hobby, so he has helped me out quite a bit with getting things going and has an extremely flexible thing with me on the tank, because we will not be here over they summer the tank will broken down and reset back up for the new club comers each year. Alright onto the Details...

Hi, this is my journal of a 3-gallon pico reef I set up in December in of 2017. My goal for this tank was to have an easy to maintain, small tank specifically to focus on rock flower anemones and Sexy Shrimp. If anyone has questions on how this tank is set up equipment wise and livestock feel free to ask below, as well as post about any suggestions you have or pictures of your own Sexy Shrimp or Rock Flower Anemones.Â Â Stay tuned as I plan to add more RFA's to the tank soon
Hello everyone, so due to a incredibly rushed move I was forced to break down my fusion 10 and diy 25 😞 so two days here I decided to start a new tank! There’s a lot of local stores here and I amazingly saw a 45p and just had to have it when I saw. Anyways the equipment is a bit bare bones 1 aquaclear 30 1 aquatop 50w 1 nanobox tide I was able to take with me 11 pounds dry LR 10 pounds live sand ive decided to use dr Tim’s fishless cycle method and have been following that dosing with the ammonium chloride. Until the cycle is over I only have a sponge but plan to use purigen as well. Possibly red seas supplements or some other phosphate removal to correct water parameters from SW from the store. The next thing im thinking of is making a stand to house either a small sump to use Lily pipes to hide equipment or an ATO and reservoir, as evaporation is incredibly fast in Phoenix compared to Memphis. My planned inhabitants will most likely be no fish. As for corals, I’m wanting to keep a euphillia dominated tank. Possibly a couple other mushroom or lps. I’m currently looking at a large group of sexy shrimp with a couple other small critters like hermits and snails. I am also wanting to seed the tank with copepods but unsure what cultures I should be looking at? Is there any recommendation? Anyways here are the pictures of the tank so far! 7/23/18 thank you for any comments or advice!
