Hi all,

new to this site - was on google and some how got here

anyway, i got myself a 24g nano cube in Nov07. I do not have any recent pics but will get some this weekend. so far my inhabitants include a whole bunch of zoa's (got from Durbs on Dec holiday with my invert permit), 7 hermits, 1 crocea (got him last thursday), 2 clowns, 3 tube worms, 2 walking anemones, 2 urchins, star fish and 2 brain corals.

i am stocking very slowly. feeding the fish omega pellets with garlic and the corals with marine snow. yesterday was the first day i decided to target feed - (i normally just put in 5ml into my seio) - and WOW was i suprised at how they all reacted - the walking anemone almost doubled in size - the brains all woke up and this morning my crocea is fully open - never seen him so open before.

well anyway will keep you updated - and will post pics on monday

regards

shan

Hi Shan! A very WARM welcome to MASA! I hope you enjoy our company. Yes, we would love to see some pics of your tank.... And life-stock!

BTW: I have a wee bit of experience with nemmies (I have 4 of them in my 2 metre tank) - and just want to suggest something:
- nemmies "walk" because they are not too happy - they cannot find a spot to "stay"....
- I use lighting and water flow to make my nemmies happy - of which they usually require A LOT OF....
- I also feed my nemmies once a week, pink shrimp (raw - what you get from Pick-n-Pay ie in Seafood mix)....

What lighting do you have - what total amount of water flow do you have in your nano? You mention a Seio? What size Seio? Also, what other pumps do you have in your tank?

Looking forward to some pics and more information.

Hi jacquesb

thanks. With the questions - the seio is the M620 and then i have the stock pump in the sump that comes with the jbj nano cube. with upgrade the stock sump pump to a maxijet 720 as soon as i can get my hands on one. lights are stock nano cube compacts -2 white and 2 blue.

with the nennie - i know your concern - these are not the normal nennies that you get at the LFS - they are from durbs rock pools. they are actually called a walking or wondering nennie (common name) i do not know a scientific - when i post the pics maybe someone can tell me. I will not put a normal LFS nennie into my 24g as i know the difficulty in keeping them. With the 2 i have, i feed them omega pellets and marine snow - will get some coral frenzy as well. since i got them, they have grown. if they did not walk, then i would be worried.

walking nennies - as you can see, they are not the normal LFS variety. the green one glows green in the led night lights

2nd to last picture looks like a majano nenny. Just watch out for that. The other nenny is a beadlet. Clowns will generally not go near them either.

Normally keep mine at 8. But if it works for you, stay with it :thumbup:. The sea is normally measured at 6-7
