Photo Caption:The purple up top is a snail that was one of a bunch that was born two months back. They are growing quickly, with plenty of algae. The light blue on the right is just showing another baby snail along with culpera. The pink is a mini bristle star, and the yellow is a bristle worm. The green is xenia that just apeared, and the purple is to show that lovely sediment. MMMMM.......NASTY. also if you look at all the little white dots.......they are filter feeding feather dusters. they help too!
Description: My tank is 29 gallons and right at a year old. I have tried to keep my whole setup as natural as possible with filtration and water parameters. I have three fish (two clowns and a six line wrasse) and a number of corals. I have a AquaC Remora Pro, 20 gallon sump with 60lbs of sand, a filter sock to get out debris, a CPR overflow with two outlets to safeguard my tank, and my return pump is a mag drive 9.5 hooked to a scwd to give me switching currents. I have put a lot of time and money into this hobby and it is my passion.
Advice: Be PATIENT. Thats why I got into this, to help me with my patients. You rush and you will fail.
Fish Kept: Two clowns, sixline wrasse, 100ish nassarious snails, sea cucumber, and 4 turbo snails.
Corals/Plants: in my refuge I have brown red and green algaes as well as 60 mangroves. I have acropora, birdsnest,mushrooms,hammer corals, galaxy corals, fungi plate coral, xenia, and even palys and zoas.
About Yourself: Im only 20 years old but I live in Florida an love the florida keys. I like scuba diving and really feel that the reefs should be preserved. I figured it was time to get my own piece of reef in my home so I could enjoy the beauty every day and show people why it needs to be protected. My goal is to have a full blown reef in the top ten on this site and the nicest 29 gallon reef in the world. Its a challenge..........but im up for it.
