Hi all! I'm back in the hobby after an almost 10 year hiatus. I was active on this forum with my 12g nano tank before I moved across the country (Georgia to Portland, OR). This forum provided a lot of help, so I'm glad a larger tank thread exists for my Red Sea Reefer 250! I'm inspired by scuba diving, both coldwater and tropical. I was in Raja Ampat, Indonesia, before the pandemic hit and I enjoy diving in kelp forests in the Pacific Northwest. I've always said I was too busy or didn't want to sink money in to another tank. But now I'm stuck at home and the world is depressing, so I need a happy hobby! Tank goals: -As sustainable as possible without taking many (any?) things directly from the ocean -Mixed reef with lots of gentle movement -Gorgonian -Clam -Pistol shrimp and goby pair -Clowns and anemones -Maybe some macro algae -Future goal- pods and a mandarin Equipment List as of October 2020: Red Sea Reefer 250 - 54g display and 11g sump SeptraPure MaxCap 5 stage RO/DI Return pump - Eheim 1260
mickeyc1195 posted a topic in Nano Reef JournalsSo I have entered the big challenge for 2018 for us nano reefers. So I figured to put my build up on the forum since I've been trying to find a build where someone was mostly if not only focused on using leather corals. Yes they are pretty simple but, with the right combination I think I can create a pretty good display. Keeping it simple: Heater AI Prime 12x12x12 cube Minimal sand 6lbs of rock Powerhead And NO FILTER Simply a water change once to every two weeks should be fine since leathers prefer little dirty water. My bio load will also be minimal with two tiny super tiny bullethole clown fish. Will post pics very soon! P.s. this is my first topic... wish me luck ?
