Nothing too demanding, keeping it simple since this is my first saltwater tank and I don’t want to get too complicated for a tank that belongs to a preschooler. —— Well, I've wanted to set up a reef tank for years, but life kept getting in the way. I had bought some stuff to start a 40B a few years ago but that project got derailed when I got pregnant with my oldest. Fast forward almost 4 years and the aforementioned derailment is now an almost 4 year old who absolutely loves fish (and so do his little brothers). The one bright point of all the time he and his siblings spend at hospitals is always checking out the fish tanks they have for some time to de-stress. So this little guy is getting a 13.5g evo for his birthday for he and I to enjoy together. His is birthday is the first week of June, our current goal is to have it cycled and ready for his first fish on his birthday. I have the tank sitting waiting, refractometer arrived just now and the stand should be here today too before the holiday. Going to be sticking with the stock lights and such at least for now, since we’re not looking to get into anything too complicated for a tank for a 4 year old, we’ll be sticking to softies and maybe some LPS. I’ll probably end up at least adding a power head sometime soon, but for cycling we’ll be ok with the stock return pump. I have to check my gear in the basement, I had a heater that was supposed to be for a QT tank that might work for this tank, if not I still need to grab one, along with some salt, distilled water (we don’t have the space in our little rental for a RODI unit right now so we’re starting with distilled), test kit and some rock from the LFS. They only carry the Caribsea Life Rock so we’ll see how that works out for us. Hoping to get the tank wet this weekend to start cycling. Stocking plans are up in the air mostly except for a clownfish, or maybe a pair. This is a tank (mostly) for a child after all, so it wouldn’t be complete without a clown.

leluckie posted a topic in Identification ForumHey all - I've been scouring the internet to try to find an ID on this worm and an answer as to what could be wrong with my YCG's tail fin. As of yesterday, the YCG's fin was perfectly fine, but when I came in this am there seemed to be some damage. The Zoa polyps I have in the tank have also been closed for most of the day and have been open and happy since I added them to the tank last week. I spotted this worm (?!?) prior to the lights coming on and need an ID so I can properly treat the fish/take steps to remove it from the tank.
Hi, I have these pellets and I’m wondering if my yellow clown goby will eat these? I know she’s a carnivore and she should have a diet primarily of frozen mysis shrimp, etc but I see that there’s a lot of natural fish as the main ingredients and shrimp also, so I’m wondering if I have to go out and buy the mysis shrimp or would these be fine. Thanks.
