Looks good. Welcome to AA!!

But I see two tangs, clown, wrasse, & firefish. All that in a 24g. Wow! How long the tangs been in there. There will be problems in the future. How are your nitrates now?

The tank looks great, but as Ray said, the tangs don't belong in a tank that small. Not too sure about keeping the wrasse either. Anyway....

Wow, I like your tank. What kind of featherduster is that in the last pic, it's gorgeous!

Really nice looking tank! I agree with the concern about the tangs though. Those things get really big for a tank that small.

thank you all for your comments

I had the tank for 2yrs its a nano-cube24 from jbj. My nitrate levels and all the rest have been on point so far, just cant let up on the maintenance. I have a mini skimmer on back and i add a chemipure elite every few months. Really clears up the water, even makes it look hd. Recently i added a Viper K2 70w Metal Halide, the corals have began to adapt and are opening much more.
Regarding having too much fish in the nano, that was at the beginning guess all the exciting of the hobby. Now i have just the blue tang, maroon clown fish and a candy cane shrimp.

With the constant work it seems you're putting into it, guess it's really paying off for you.

BTW, that a much more gooder fish load.

2 years with the blue tang? I'm scared of those in a large tank being kinda sensitive like they are I hear.

Still remains... great looking tank!
