10 gallon NPS LPS
 
Anyone else alive around here? I've changed tank sizes several times the past few years, currently my coral are in a 10 gallon IM all in one tank. Livestock are one clownfish, a rhizo, two dendro frags, balanophyllia, sun coral, gorgs (photosynthetic) Plenty of live rock, stock pump, frequent water changes is the extent of filtration.

That's beautiful! I've always wanted to try a NPS tank but was intimidated by the care and frequent water changes needed.

This gives me an idea...
Currently my few NPS coral reside in the sump, not so much for the lack of light but rather to be out of reach of my always hungry Regal Angel and way too friendly clownfish. Also the sump provides good flow and a steady supply of food.
But I actually have with the Ventralis Anthias the perfect fish for an NPS deep water biotope...

Very nice !!!!

The corals look vibrant and healthy.
What food do you provide them ?
Do you have any other products that you use??
Try to have some more other different corals. Have you tried any soft NPS corals??

Looks great. What is that coral on top of the picture? and also what are those corals on the left side of the tanks? looks like dendro but with white poly?

GoingPostal 12/18/2020 03:11 PM

The white large polyp on top is a rhizotrochus, the pinkish ones are balanophyllia.

Almost 10 months on, how is this tank looking now? ��

I've just upgraded everything in size a bit, promotion at work and my cichlid's needed a larger tank so now it's all back in my dropoff tank. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...783d147571.jpg
