Re: Bens Nano #1
Right, lots of things changed since last time.

---

Sun Coral, sold.

I now have a Leopard Wrasse in there, and thats it, until my QT tank is ready to house new buys

Coral Wise, I have kept almost everything, except a zoa colony, which I sold to my LFS, and used to money to buy a Pink Colony

Also, I now have;

Duncans
LOADS more mushrooms
9 Ricordeas
Frags of Zoas everywhere
As with frags of GSPs everywhere

So the tank is running very well atm.

Pics

Not the best, but the best I can do.

Re: New 2ft cube Project! #2
There was one on fleabay that did sell for ?51, sounded and looks like yours but either one was a bargain!

Anyhow, what do you plan to have in the tank? Livestock wise?

Re: Bens Nano #5
Not much interest, but I'll update anyway.

Err, lost my clown goby. He stopped eating, poor fella. And then he just vanished? CUC may of taken care.

The tiny blue ricordia, has grown, and is now about 1cm, compared to around 3/4cm above.

The ric in the first shot, is now BIGger. Growing well, and eating mysis now.

The big red ric is aswell growing well!

Sun Coral, still not producing coenosarc still hasn't began to return, so thinking of selling it, and starting again with a small frag. The big one will be sold to somebody else willing to feed enough to reproduce the coenosarc again.

I have wiped the glass, so I can now see into the tank properly

Cleaner shrimp atm is carrying eggs, so a free meal for the corals and fish there

Thats all for now

* Pics to come tomorrow

You got a bargain anyway!

Good luck

Bens Nano #7
Thats right. My Nano! Dad has officially left me to do it by myself!

Shame he doesn't pay for it though... :/

Anyway, scaped the tank on Sunday, after a frag trip, to a fellow reefers tank, he had an awesome set up....

So, here goes. Ignore the algae if you can, I have a new scraper on the way...

Just fragged this. Was huge, like at least 9 inches across, so now in 5-6 smaller bits. All fine.

New Ricordia Mushroom. Stunning light blue, dark blue tips. My fav coral, even if he is tiny!

^^^^ Pom Pom Xenia

^^^^ Bright pink Zoanthid frag, colours shown poorly on the pic. Looks behind the yellow polyps

Original Image

^^^^ Radioactive Zoa's. Again, picture doesn't do justice, but they had only just settled anyway...

And a FTS. I'm happy with how the tank is going, will just keep getting frags after frags after frags, and grow them, until I upgrade in the not too distant future.

Thats it for now.

Any comments, would be much appreciated.

Will post this up in the other Marine section.

Thanks

Ben
