Its been a few months since I've last updated. Here are a few photos of the tank from last night.
Nothing really happening with the tank right now, just letting it hang out and do its thing. I've recently just completed a mini energy/utility use audit in an effort to reduce my overhead/operating costs on my system. I can successfully say that I was able to lower my utility bills considerably by swapping out a 250w MH for a Kessil light and a number of smaller minor equipment tweaks.
I have many, many blogs to catch up on, but I'll start with an easy one, some new addition photos.
And here are a few coral that have been existing in my tank for a little while:
I let the tank run for about 5 days and didn't see anything being picking up on the tests, at the LFS.
So I decided to pick up some fish..
A Little Cherub Angelfish, approx. 1.5" and a Yellow Watchman Goby, approx. 1" and a Candy Cane Pistol Shrimp.
The first night the Cherub found a hiding spot and went to sleep. Nothing to worry about there.
But the Yellow Watchman constantly tried to jump. Thankfully the tank came with a glass cover and he was
Now that water is at acceptable levels, after implementing Balling, I was thinking maybe it was time to try adding some corals again.
Then, guess what, I heard about a guy selling his 86L nano with all inside, thought the price looked good, and bought it.
Got some beautiful looking natural live rocks, two small peppermint shrimp, a nice small leather coral, a few Trumpets, some Zoanthus and Palithoa, a medium Galaxea, a small Xenia and some scattered greenish Mushroom
Take a second and think of a coral that can change the shape it grows in throughout its life? Yeah not many.
Montipora Setosa can grow in many different ways. M. Setosa is an encrusting coral that can grow little fingers, have small bumpy nubs, or can shelf out like a montipora capricornis. In my experience with M. Setosa I started with a small 3/4" stick a little over two years ago and now it's a 12" x 9" colony. It started encrusting well then started growing fingers.
