  1. Bunch of stuff for sale!

    Pm sent on this.
  2. Tiny Tank, Tiny Budget Contest

    It looks like a few people actually missed the 5pm deadline and I just want paying close enough attention. I'm giving everyone a pass for the week and letting bubbles get a picture posted tonight and move forward. Please get updates posted by 5pm for the next one. I'll only be lenient this once.
  3. Tiny Tank, Tiny Budget Contest

    I feed with tongs anyway. It helps keep the little tank clean. It was too cute to not bring home.
  4. Tiny Tank, Tiny Budget Contest

    That looks so clean! Too bad I snagged the little coral croucher that came in yesterday. Well, too bad for you, he would have been perfect for that tank.

    Tanks are looking great everyone!
  6. Tiny Tank, Tiny Budget Contest

    Sorry Kai, I have to hold everybody to the timeline.
  7. Out with the tiny, in with the slightly less tiny

    No thanks. I'm building one.

    That's interesting. I wonder where the excess nutrients are coming from. Where did the rock come from? Maybe its leaching phosphates?

    Have you been feeding them at all? There are nerite snails that you can get that live in brackish water to feel way algae. Look up pipipi snails. I'll take the shrimp from you if you're going to junk it though.
  10. Now that the contest pico is off the desk, I have room to start getting this new project going. It's going to be two 6 gallon tanks plumbed into the same sump. The tank on top is a 10" cube, and will house a pistol shrimp/goby pair. The bottom tank is 24"long x 9" high x 6.5" deep. I'll keep a frog fish in that one. The sump will be the standard 10g tank that was my first set up 6 years ago. I'm going to keep the corals pretty simple. It'll be mainly softies and some macros. That's all I have for right now. I haven't figured out what I want to do for lighting yet. I can't decide on two separate smaller lights, or one big one hung above the whole setup.

    There's not a whole lot to update on this. There's some adorable little shrimp, they swim around and eat algae... I did pull apart a few of the moss balls and glued the pieces to the rock. We'll see how that works out.
  12. Betta falls anyone?

    I think it found a new home.
  13. Betta falls anyone?

    I gave up on this little guy after a couple of equipment failures. Does anybody want it before I throw it away? I put two bulkheads in the bottom so I could run a sump with it. It would take a little tinkering to run it without the sump, but you can take the whole setup if you want it.
  14. Food for April Meeting

    I'll bring baked beans.
  15. Jack's 12g long

    I'm not sure I've ever posted a full tank shot of my tank. It's a mr aqua 12g long that I've had running for almost 5 years now. The tank is rimless and 36"x8"x8". I love the footprint on these tanks. Although it makes it harder to get a decent fts.
