grassi Posted January 30, 2009 Share Posted January 30, 2009 Hi all! I've been on the nano-reef forums for a while, and I'm so happy to find something more local (clap) I have a 14g Biocube with about 21lbs LR. It was set up with 8lbs of LR and 5 Damsels for 6 months before I bought it. The first livestock we added was a small CUC of 4 little snails and 2 scarlet hermits. Then we had added an emerald crab with the initial CUC, although later we found out he was evil as he pulled out my large feather duster and ripped him in half right in front of me and stalked all other living creatures in the tanks... :o needless to say he went back to the store! We're having tons of fun looking at the LR everyday for new growths and hitchhikers, which has been really eventful! I'm now obsessed with identifying every HH we find... Hitchhikers to date: - peanut, spaghetti, and hair worms - feather dusters (including many of white tubes and bright red/orange/pink "feathers") - tons of brittle starfish - pineapple sponges - brachiopod (according to the identification section of the forum) - Actinodiscus shroom (12/28/08) - Stomatellas (4 so far) - 3 Orange Ball Anemone (Pseudocorynactis) Livestock (purchased): (not including stock in "quarantine/frag tank") - Scarlet and Blue Leg Hermits, 7 snails - Zoas, Polyps, Shrooms, and 12 ricordea - Green Star Polyp - Candy Cane - Frogspawn - Hammer (very neon!) - Torch - Pagoda Coral - Duncans (2 varieties) - Sun Coral - ORA Birdsnest - Rufus (giant!) - 2 Ocellaris Clowns (local tank raised babies) "FISH" and "CHIPS" Modifications: - Koralia nano powerhead - Hydor Flo Deflector - Chaeto, Filter Floss, and LR rubble (took out bio balls and biobag filter) - Maxi Jet 900 - Remora skimmer w/1200 maxi jet - 16.5 inch Sunpod 12/09/08 - added 7lbs cured LR to what the tank came with 12/27/08 - after adding 4.5lbs more very cured LR and re-scaping 01/06/09 - after adding my frags and finishing the rockscaping (sorry for the crappy pic, hubby is traveling with the good camera!) 02/03/09 - busy month! Added two baby clowns, some frags, MJ 900, and a SUNPOD 03/23/09 After too many changes and lessons to list! lol Feels like a real tank now... so happy!
