So does that mean a pico freshwater cannot be done by a beginner either? I'm really interested in mushroom coral! It's fascinating to watch it eat! Too bad I can't do a pico for salt water. I don't want to kill it.

That's not a commonly sold/traded animal, you'll probably never find one. And that's more nem than mushroom.

Actually, I disagree. My mushrooms eat quite readily, especially my hairy shrooms. However, my red and green ones dont seem to accept food quite as readily.

I started my tank a little over two months ago and started to get noticeable Coraline growth about a week ago. I think a part of my early growth could have been the fact almost all my live rock had Coraline on it to start. My algae went thru a green phase before I started seeing some light purple and blue.

Coralline algae and Jar reef

Ok so I did some more research so I'm going to go ahead and do a pico reef if I can! I have found a pretty large vase and I've looked at a few soft corals and how to propagate and care for them. But I still want some opinions! So does anyone think zoas or pulsating xenias are a good option? I want a low light pico. So any suggestions? They don't need filters do they? I'll be getting a power head and a light if my parents allow me to set my pico up, but if I need anything else please let me know! Upkeep advice would be helpful too! Water parameters please? I know, I know I need to do more research but Its always helpful to get advice straight from experienced reefers who love what they do!

Here's the vase... I haven't measured It yet so not sure how much capacity I'm going to have to work with. Click image for larger version

Xenia I would say a definite no. They just spread way too fast for a tank that small. However, the Zoas would work great. Perhaps even better than the mushrooms.

Ugh I keep swinging from pico to my 10g! The more I read about the devastation in people's picos the more I think my ten gallon would be better.
