    Hi everyone,

    this is my tank its a 15l pico/nano. I run purigen and rowa phos, i have 0.5 kg live rock rubble in the tank as well as 1.5kg in the display. i perform a 1l weekly water change and check the salinity daily and perform water test every 4 days.

    I watched the tank start its main cycle and then another mini cycle occurred

    I added 2 hermits, 2 trocus snails and 2 nassarius snails. the nassarius snails have doubled in size in about 2 weeks :eek:. i got some small zoa, green and orange colors :D. Last week friday i added a pom pom crab and a yellow clown goby. the goby is still very shy he hides most of the day, except when feeding and after feeding he rubs up against his reflection on the glass :confused1:.

    will post pics when i figure out how to lol.

    cheers
    john

    Hey :)

    My tank is also about that size, not set up yet, but it'll be my first marine tank. Looking forward to the pics to see what you done :)

    Hello and Welcome
    Just check the goby does not jump out.

    Not sure if that tank will maintain 4 vegetarian snails. Especially if you clean the glass. 2 hermits, depending on size, yes maybe.

    Luckily enough the tank comes with a cover :). the nassarius snails stay almost all the time in the sand, except when i feed. the other two are all over the tank, i havent had a need to clean the glass yet.

    Very cool - your pics look awesome.

    And welcome to MASA! Are you going to get a bigger tank or just stay with the pico?

    the pom pom is quite friendly when i moved her into the tank, she climbed onto my hand and didn't want to let go when i put her into the tank and she beats on everyone when she grabs a small piece of food, she actualy runs toward the crabs just to tease them:p

    Welcome the tank looks good, the pom pom crabs are really interesting in these small tanks as soon as I moved mine to my bigger tank I hardly saw it.
