Maintenance Routine
I'm doing about a 5g water change over the span of a month and replace the GFO as needed
Feeding Schedule
On a typical day the aquarium gets feed 2-3 times per day depending on the my availability, I will drop a pinch of New Life Spectrum pellets or thaw out some frozen treats.Also sometimes I broadcast feed a couple mL of live phytoplankton,oysterfeast,rotifers and ReefRoids.
Fish
2 Green Chromis, 3Pj Cardinals,Pygmy Angel(he doesn't nip on any coral),Raniford Goby, and last but not least a tiny Scooter Blenny.


SPS Coral
There's a couple frags of green,purple,and orange plating montipora caps.
LPS Coral
I have a single Torch head and a small Kryptonite Candycanes.
Soft Coral
A ton of pulsating xenia,assorted mushrooms and a zoa collection.Last time I counted how the different varieties of zoas were in the tank I stopped at 6 unknown and 12 named polyps( Purple People Eater,Blue Hornets,Gatorades,Eagle Eyes,Scrambbled Eggs,Solar Flare,Gorilla Nips,Blue Eyed B*^%,Devils Armor,WWC Mumbo Jumbo's,LA Lakers and WWC Green Apple Something.In addition to those theres a health amount of GSP growing in the back wall and on of the rocks.
Can't remember if this are the Devil Armor or something similar

Gatorade Zoas are soon going to the backwall

Some of my all-time favs the one and only Blue Hornets

Let's not forget about the WWC Mumbo Jumbo these polyps are hot too!


Invertebrates
Lettuce nudibranch,an Arrow crab,10 red leg hermits and 6 assorted snails
History & Goals
In its past life this 20L was originally a freshwater tank,but due to an ick outbreak i decided to start from scratch and repurpose it as a Xenia Specific system, but as you've read I couldn't resist and added frags from my other tanks as well as a couple zoanthids.The idea behind this tank was to create an aquarium that was both visually aesthetic but easy to maintain.I let the Xenia do its thing and I have almost no nutrient control issues, I've actually started dosing KNO3 to get it readable levels since some Zoas have lost a bit of color.
Future Plans
Just to let all the corals grow to the point where every open surface is covered.[

Can't remember if this are the Devil Armor or something similar
