    After being banned from any type of tank 15 years ago by my Wife, a large parcel arrived under the tree. A new Weber i thought , no! a nano tank. What a learning curve, no, i know nothing , yes i have had some bad advise, and yes i have been sold all the kit twice over. I now have a fab nano and am hooked on the hobby. Am now looking into coral propagation and fish breeding. 6 months down the line and a limited lifetime to go...

    Is that an anemone in the first pic? If yes, it looks a bit bleached.

    Do you target feed the suncoral?

    I have made a clear cup that fits over the sun coral with a tube in the top , I then inject it with food via a syringe. keeps the other critters at bay. The nemmie is looking better now this is an old pic

    Your tank was a bit too young to add a nemmie - best to wait 9 - 12 months before adding one ;)
    What lights do you have? Nemmies need quite strong lights to thrive.

    I acted on the advice of the lfs , it went in at about 5 months, it is positioned near the top of the tank running on std 10000k x 2 power compacts and moonlights. I am planning a second 2m 700l tank with a full MH rig and all the bells so he will eventually get transfered

    Because of the shortage of light, feed him for now twice a week with shrimp meat. You get those shrimp tails at P 'n P for about R30 - cut off as you need and the rest frozen. ;)

    welcome to masa, great to have you here.

    delightful pics of the lobster, very lucky sequence:)

    tobes has said most of what u need to hear about that nennie, but you would do well to read up as much as you can on their care, even if that tank is too younge.

    of note though, its great to hear that you are upgrading to a 2m with propper lighting for the tank, but simply transfering the nennie may give you difficulties too as the tank will not be mature for a long while.

    you might need some planning around this creature.
