Gunna experiment here with something fun and a bit new. I was scrounging around and found some acrylic sheets and some plumbing fittings and decided to make a 1 gallon mini cube DT. It will have water pumped from the sump of my main tank into this one then back though the bulkhead and will be mounted on the wall next to the main DT. Now the question is, should I make this into a small single red mangrove refuge (which would increase nutrient export and increase copopods which equals more food for the ruby red dragonet), or make this into a really cool little zoa/paly mini tank... I'm split between the two.

So I caught the bug after an almost 20-year hiatus from reef keeping. After deciding a while ago to set up a little reef tank and filling it with water it leaked all over my floor. The next day I went out determined to fix the problem and accidentally bought a Red Sea Max Nano. Needless to say, it's awesome. My only problem I have now is a lack of patience. Right now I'm happy with a couple of shrimp, 2 clowns, a torch, zoa colony, hammer and a polyp I can't remember the name of. I am pretty excited to find this community here in Portland and looking forward to Sunday's meet-up.

So this evening my daughter decided to play with my cleaner shrimp and dosed the tank with a cup of medium pulp orange juice its a 50 gal mixed reef no sps got pretty cloudy so i turned off skimmer threw a clean canister on it and running some carbon, i know you can dose vitamin c but is this going to have any effects on the system?
Ps.. Torches and frogspawn do not like orange juice lol
