October FTS: September FTS: August FTS: July FTS: June FTS: May FTS: April FTS: *** I'm in: After being out of the SW game for close to 10 years, I recently started a FW tank that I've been calling the #kiddieplantedtank for my 3 year old son to house Japanese Blue Endler guppies. The tank has elements that he really appreciates (i.e., mostly having a miniature "house" with a spinning wheel and seeing guppies "walk" on the bridge), but I've enjoyed it a great deal myself as well. Photo below: That FW tank led me back to N-R, and I've been itching to set up a nano reef tank ever since. I do have a 20g nano reef project in the works right now, but that is taking a bit longer than anticipated to get wet. So I figure might as well make my life harder and throw this pico tank into the mix. For this set-up, I'm going to try to make a pico that complements and replicates some elements of the #kiddieplantedtank that I set up for my son. Basically a tank that both he and I can enjoy together. I'm calling this one the #kiddiereeftank. 🙂 And the pico will be home to pom-pom crabs. Maybe I should call this tank the Pom-Pom Pico Paradise Tank. 🤔 Some background: I've been away from N-R for a very long time, so I'm not familiar with most of the active N-R members anymore, and don't see many of my old N-R buddies around (😥), but I'm looking forward to getting to know current N-R members through this contest. I was a very active N-R member myself almost 15 years ago (Team '04!), and I had a blast participating in N-R's very first pico contest back in 2005-2006 with my custom 2.5g surge/tidal pico. Admittedly, I focused more on the set-up than the livestock for that first contest, so I'm glad that we have standardized the tank and equipment this time so I can focus more on what's inside the tank. But sorry, I just can't bring myself to do the janky tank. lol. TL;DR - I'm super thrilled to be back in this hobby after a long absence, and I'm entering the pico contest with my #kiddiereeftank which will house pom-pom crabs. Anywho, time to put on my game face.
