Talking My Newest Tank Thread

Ok, so at the request of my friend, I am going to share my tank with you guys. I decided to start my tank a month or so ago, and I think it's come along really well. First up the Stats

20G High Perfecto Tank
Black Painted Background
2x24W Nova Extreme T-5 Light System
Whisper Power Filter, Converted to Fuge
Palm Light for Fuge
Dr Foster and Smith Power Filter, with Overflow Attachment.
2x JBJ Dual Ouput 290gph
Coralife 1W Blue Moon Light


So now for the pics

Light System



Drs Foster and Smith Power Filter


Overflow attachment. This is probably the coolest thing that I have seen for a Nano. A lot of people seem to suffer from surface junk with these small tanks, but this does a great job of cleaning that up, and it doesn't look awful.


Here is my fuge with a Palm light, the cheato is doing ok, but I need some more.


JBJ Dual output, I really like this pump, because it gives me a nice flow pattern.


Moon Light, this thing is awesome makes everything green in my tank glow, and gives me a great shimmer.


Next is a Full tank shot, and some left and right side shots

Here are my Corals as of now


Toadstool Leather


Not sure what this is, I got this Frag from a friend


My first coral ever, this has been in at least 5 tanks now. Even if I sell my tank this goes into a friends tank until I rescue it again.


A Frag of zoo's I got from Premium Aquatics this weekend, they have great stuff. If anyone knows exactly what type they are please do tell.

Not really a coral but still close enough, my neighborhood feather duster.

Now for the two fish I have, I love these guys and it will be hard to pick something else as wonderful as these guys.


My Lawnmower Blenny! He's great and I love to watch him scoot around the tank on his belly.



Here is my other favorite fish, I love the dark color of this young tomato clown. It's probably the darkest one I've seen for it's size that's why I had to get him.

The cleanup crew is small right now it consists of
1 Turbo Snail
3 Trochus Snails
3 Nassarius snails

I will be expanding this list later this week, please leave comments and ask any questions you have, I would love to see what you guys think.

Having seen your tank in person it is very nice. I'm glad that we started our tanks at nearly the same time. It will be fun to watch our tanks mature along the same rate and fill up with coraline.

Your clown and bleamy is very awesome looking.

Its very funny how your rock with the mushrooms on it is soo much more mature than the rest of your tank.

HAHA Don't worry, the rock had been cycling for well over a month before it went into the tank. My levels are completely stable. I really don't add but one thing a week or so.
