  1. After starting my membership here with a strong showing, and for my own educational purposes and record, I guess I’ll start a journal. Seems like a good place to keep a list of ideas and tips to help me on this journey! Tank: Fluval Evo XII 13.5 gallon started 1/21/2019 Equipment: Fluval spec return pump 132gph Fluval sea mini protein skimmer 5-10gallon Fluval 50W heater In Tank Chamber 1 media basket Current Orbit Marine LED light w bracket arm Current Orbit Eflux Wave pump 660gph (along w their hubs) IM mesh screen Media: Fluval bio rings (bottom level of media basket) Fluval 100gm carbon (bottom level media basket) Fluval clearmax (middle level media basket) IM filter floss (top level media basket) Stock: 14lbs live rock ? Lbs of life sand Black oscellaris clown True percula clown Blue spotted goby watchman Red banded snapping shrimp Scarlet shrimp Trochus snails x4 Dwarf red hermit crabs x 10 Star polyp x 2 (one split into two sections thanks to hermits, so there’s three-ish) Palys x 2: both protopalythoa Hairy mushroom x3 (all on one big rock) Hammer x 1 Zoa x1 Now obviously I didn’t start with all of this at once. We started with three clowns in fact- two percula and the oscellaris, but the two bigger fish kept trying to kill the smaller so I took the small guy back to save him from certain death within a week. Following that, the black was named Jolly Roger and the percula Jack Sparrow. (What can I say- this tank is “supposed” to be owned by my soon to be 9 year old who LOVES POTC, but secretly, it’s mine 😁) We started with two trochus and five hermits, but I doubled that for more cleaning power after about two and a half weeks. Those guys don’t get names. We added the goby and his “pal” Jan 22, but they NEVER hang with each other and in fact I’m not sure they know the other exists anymore. The goby was named J Edgar Hoover because he is always watching us with disapproval from across the room and follows us around the tank with his permanent frown. The pistol shrimp was named Snappy because well..... 🤷🏻‍♀️ We added the scarlet shrimp a week ago, and he’s quite the personality. We call him the Red Baron. We started the tank with a zoa and the little star polyp that the herms split in two. We next added the protopalys. Added the hammer today, with some drama due to the LFS lady who evidently thinks I’m out to kill everything in my tank 🤦🏽‍♀️. That’s it for this tank in a nutshell.

  3. My pair of snapping shrimp and pinkbar goby somehow are taking a time off. The goby has moved to one side of the tank under a rock a s shrimp has stayed where they lived. It is now 4 days that they are living apart. I thought the rock cave is small and slightly moved the rocks to make more space in the original spot but the goby is still living in the other rock. I wonder what has happened that they are living apart and what can I possibly need to do to help them get back together.

    Gravity’s Biocube 14G

    This is my first reef tank and is currently around 21 months old. Late into my first year I experienced some Dino and had really slowed my coral growth. It has taken many months to get things growing again. I initially started this tank as a softy and LPS build but it has now shifted to a softy tank.

    Fish reccomendations

    I have a 20 gallon cube reef with a lubbock fairy, spriger damsel and a royal gramma, I want a fish to graze on algae and a benethic fish like a shrimp goby. The tank will become an acro dominated mixed reef A few questions. Do midas blennies graze? Any experiences on pairing shrimps and gobies? I am getting a randall's or a tiger pistol shrimp. What about dither fish? all my fish are cave dwellers. Any fish in a small enough size that will eat aptasia? will a radial filefish eat aptasia?
  6. I just got a tiny yellow watchman goby, and I would like to pair him with a shrimp. I’m wondering if anyone has a suggestions on the specific species of shrimp. Additionally, my goby is TINY. He's likely to be way smaller than any shrimp I get, is this a problem? Have you guys had success pairing a goby with a larger shrimp? Does anyone have any suggestions on convincing the goby and the shrimp to pair up? Thanks!!

    Fluval 5 gallon stocking

    I am hoping to get into the saltwater side of things in the near future after doing freshwater for quite a while. Unfortunately, I am limited to the small Fluval Evo 5 gallon for the foreseeable future, so I came here to try and make the most of it. I really have my heart set on a shrimp/goby pair and I would like to look into what else would be a good addition (shrimp, crabs, snails, corals?). Are there any modifications I should make to my tank before starting? What else should I know about a nano tank that isn't obvious? (parameter fluctuations, topping off) Thanks in advance! 🙂

    Stocking a 40 Breeder

    Long story short I was gonna a IM 25g lagoon because of the AIO and the Dimensions, I always liked 40breeders but I don't have the space for a sump but I don't want a ton of hang on equipment. Then finally I found a product called "Fiji AIO box" which you just slide into the tank and boom! its a AIO. So I'm going with a 40 breeder reef. Equipment and stocking are below. Equipment -Tunze 9001 -Chemipure blue -Seachem Matrix -Poly filter pad -Ehiem Jager 150w heater -Micro ATO -Eflux 600 powerhead -Current USA marine orbit (Will upgrade if I ever want to try harder corals) -60 LBS of LR -40 LBS of Arag-alive Corals -Zoas -Toadstool Leather -Finger Leather -GSP (separate rock) -Blasto -Hammer -Frogspawn -Maybe a torch Fish & Inverts -1 Flame Angel -1 Yellow Corris Wrasse -Pair of OCC. Clowns -1 Watchmen & shrimp pair - 3-4 trochus snails - 3-4 Narrsarius snails -1 Cleaner shrimp -1 Tuxedo urchin Is this a good list? Is there anything you would change or take out? Any thoughts much appreciated.
