    First off, Hello to everyone at MASA, I have just joined and am very impressed with the site and members!

    I have decided to try my hand at nano reef keeping. I have had several tanks in the past but with my large DT cracking aswell as other things i retired from the marine hobby for a brief 2 years. When walking into my lfs the other day i saw this great little nano for R1400 and i couldn't resist buying it.

    I set the tank up about 4 weeks ago with NSW and about 6 kgs of cured LR. I have a seio m620 in the display and a little DSB with some Chaeto in the refugium. I removed the filter floss and ceramic rings and replaced it with lots of small pieces of LR aswell as phosphate remover. Also do small weekly doses of Calcium.

    Stock ( early days)
    2 x turbo snails
    1 x fire shrimp
    6-7kgs live rock

    Welcome to MASA......
    Might be the die off from the live rock you added and not the NSW at all.

    What is this...possibly some sort of whip coral, very small about 5mm in total so difficult to say.

    With regards to previous pics i'll do some scratching around however after dropping my external down some stairs:eek: very unlikely![​IMG]

    welcome to masa great to have you here:)

    love the scape in that nano, just make sure you can still clean the sides easily, it looks like the LR might be too close to the glass.

    lovely pic of that goniopora, such a lovely coral if you can keep them alive.
