15H Nano Progress Report Pics

Just some tank shots and random stuff in my 15H tank. It is 4 months old and pretty stable. Soon I will begin buying some corals to start turning this into a reef tank.

Full tank shot (with flash):


Another tank shot (no flash):


Astrea Snail cleaning a Cerith Snail (with flash):


I watched this Hermit kill and eat a Nassarius Snail, now he keeps the shell (with flash):


Mexican Turbo in the top left, Hidden Cup Coral center, and my largest Hermit in the bottom right (no flash, actinic only):


Here is my clown saying hi (with flash and actinic):


Royal Gramma hovering in its cave, like it always does... (with flash):


For now, I want to get some of the equpiment out of the tank by sticking a heater in my Remora and getting a SCWD closed loop setup. For Corals I want to start with some Mushrooms and some Polyps.

Looks great. Have you developed a list of corals you want to put in it?

Not yet, I just want easy to care for stuff to get me going. I am thinking about starting with this Mushroom Rock from a LFS:



The rock is $45. I want some Polyps as well, but everytime I see some, it is about $30 for 10 Polyps on a single rock.
