    A few days ago I found this forum by accident, I read a few of the posts and decided that it is a good "place" to belong.

    I live in Costa Rica and have kept marine acuariums for almost 3 years. I have a 24 gal nano cube and a 50 gal, nothing fancy, begginer stuff.

    A couple of bad pictures (I do not own a good camera):

    And a pretty one from my BTA:

    I am also starting to keep dwarf seahorses, but the project isn't picture ready yet...

    I belong to another forum in Costa Rica, in case you want to check it out and practice Spanish! acuarios.desdecostarica.com

    Actually is not there anymore, it was doing ok, but it was getting too big and botheting the other corals, and in order to place it in the 50g i would have to move many things, so I ended up selling it to a friend.

    At first I thought I was a good idea to put in the nano to feed it more easily, but I had not seen it fully expanded! It even produced some mini gonioporas, but I lost them in my QT tank...
