I run it in mine. Everyone always says run it like two weeks on two weeks off. I've been running mine all the time and change it every month. Keeps the water crystal clear and smell free.

I hope your monti does good, I'm still struggling with my reverse sunset, only comes out a little bit. Never all the way. Was curious what lights your running?

I hope it does good as well. I have a two bulb T5 HO. I'm around 2.7 watts per gallon and it is near the top 1/3 of the tank. I'm guessing if it does survive it won't grow very fast.

He slept in the clip last night too. It's a bit strange but it looks like a safe spot and I can see him. I'm glad my little guy has an interesting personality.

Lol that's funny, they always have such interesting personalities, you should check out the barnacle blenny. They are silly little dudes also. Not very colorful though.

Barnacle blennies are awesome! I think they're adorable. They don't come out..ever though. Still a cool fish though.

I need to get another pair, now that I've got a lid on my new tank. Sucks they both went kamikaze out of my nano tank.

They do look pretty interesting based on liveaquarias description.

It seems a tight fitting lid is needed for blennys.

I just made this cover last weekend after reading about all the jumpers. It cut down on gas exchange so that mostly happens in my hob fuge. The major plus is there is way less evaporation. A few days ago I heard my blenny hit my lid so I'm glad it is covered.

This morning i saw my little guy getting his teeth brushed.
