i frequent nano-reef and i keep a 10 gallon nano at my house. you can check it out here.

I just wanted to let you know i'm not a newb so please take my advice.

get rid of the flame scallop. it will soon die. they are filter feeders and would require you to almost foul the water with food to keep it alive.

You could also use a bit more liverock.

those hydor pico pumps are awesome! i just added to to my 75g. very easy to hide and really move a lot of water. the tanks looks good. maybe like mentioned a little more live rock or even just some base rock.

Your post on nano-reef.com says you set up your first SW tank in June 2006.

that was merely 5 months ago. Not to cause problems or contradict you, but I would say that you are still relatively new to the hobby. It seems from your post there that you are also still in the learning curve.

My boyfriend has been taking care of and maintaining tanks for 10+ years. He helped me set up and pick my livestock. I trust him as most of the info he gives me is dead on with what 90% of people say. He owns his own aquarium maintenence business and is a manager at an aquarium supply shoppe. Funny, that is how we met .

He told me if i target feed the flame scallop daily with 2 ml or so phycopure (live phyto), as well as keeping a healthy supply of copepods and amphipods, that the scallop will be ok. I insisted on having it, despite his warnings that they are testy. But rather than discouraging me, he gave me the information I needed to care for it properly.

So far, the flame scallop is absolutely flourishing. Tomorrow, I will post a picture of it.

Thank you for the advice though. I do appreciate it.


And I agree with both you and Steve R.. I'll be adding about 10 more lbs of LR with my next batch of corals.

Wow dude, you have a lot of sand in your tank....you are gonna have all kinda of issues with that in the future.....probably will kill your livestock if you ever stir it at all or move around LR!
