Autumsky's 12G Rimless Garden

New rimless low iron rectangle with sleek white matching stand.



Plan on black sand.

Zoas, Montiporas and Mushrooms for the most part.

Someday maybe a Dragonet.

Now there will be a Coralife 24" 50/50 actinic.

This is due to a surprise early move of the things I already have since I got a really big Leather and it won't fit in the 12G. Or the 15G until I move some stuff out.

So I picked up some great stuff tonight.

Pic number 2 on the link with the yellow tang (but NOT the yellow Tang)... I got the big Green, I think Sunset Montipora, the polyps on the rock directly left of the green, the rock in the front with the 5 Orange Ricordeas and the Leather in the 4th pic.
Fish, Corals, Live Rock

The issue kinda at the moment is the Leather, it is HUGE! About 10-12" across and 14" tall and then there is a rock pretty big which it is attached to.

The Leather I thought was maybe 6-8" but it is much larger than I was anticipating. The picture seemed smaller to me or maybe it wasn't inflated as much as when I picked it up.

I had planned to plunk this stuff into my existing tank which is the 15G Column, but that is a joke and will not work.

So I am setting up the 12G a little earlier than I was thinking.

So far

Birthday Christmas gift of the tank and stand, but it cost $80 including a "free" $130. bird cage for the purchaser, lol.

From LFS

Picked up a little red Montipora frag for $5.

Picked up a 5 inch rock with 5 blue mushrooms. For $10.

The big Leather $30.
the Sunset Montipora $15.

The 5 Orange Ricordeas rock plus other live rock, $25.

The button polyp rock with mainly 2 types but a few of a 3rd variety for $10.

Have a 30-50 (200GPH) Aquaclear HOB ~17 clearance new in box

Some heater, don't know which one yet.

Pics in a few minutes. Waiting for them to arrive in my box (they just got here now I need to get them added to my albums. My phone is being sent back :/ borrowed phone pics, lol.)

Just got finished scaping the tank! I love it. Some of the little frags need to be moved around and figure out flow and light and which one goes where but I am pretty happy with the general look of it.

That tank is beautiful! I love the look of rimless tanks. Hopefully I can find a good deal on one someday for my upgrade.

Thank you! I think the Button Polyps are doing well, they opened up last night after having the light on for about an hour.

I bought another 10W Aqueon compact CFL bulb for $10. and will be putting it into my Architect light and adding it to the 12G. It's clamp is broken so i will have to zip tie it or something so it doesn't fall in the water. I need to check a specialty hardware store and see if I can get another clamp for the bottom.
