Haha you read it all? Thats cool!

Ya, yours is just a little bit smaller, but when you pull it off it will look so great. Like a little pico reef haha.

Is the tank you have rimless? Does it have a top? Oh and will this be a reef build? I didnt see anything about a reef in this thread

Whole thing! I want as much info as possible.

Yeah its rimless, seamless, etc. No top, so have to stay on top if top offs.

And yeah, it's gonna end up a pico reef. Probably just a few easy corals though, nothing hard.
Do you have any recommendations for some corals, low light, non demanding but still look cool?

You could look into Mushrooms, Zoas, Leathers and Xenia.

Nice, i love the rimless picos. So cool.

Ya, totally agree with red sea's list. All of those corals are easy, and grow pretty quickly too!

Okay sweet, I'll look into corals more later, gotta get this thing going first! Ill open all this stuff up when I get home with it (bought it while on vacation) today and look at the light and see what they'll sustain.

Sounds good! Is the tank meant for a small sw tank? It came with a light and everything?

What are you planning for HOB filtration again?

I had a 4g pico not too long ago and it was a really fun tank. I had a green clown goby and a ton of corals. Also had a nice assortment of inverts too, including shrimp. I love shrimp they are so awesome.

Good luck

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
