Just another drop in the bucket

Hello,
My name is Michael, I am 29 years old. I have been in the hobby for over 10 years and my chi is devoted more to Nano aquariums. I do hope to one day have a larger reef tank when space permits. I look forward to interacting with all of you as we go along.

Peace n chicken greece!

Welcome to AA!
If you could post pics on this thread it would be awesome. 90% of the time I'm on the app and and the profile viewing on it is very limited. Just a friendly request!

It's a bit bare at the moment. I don't keep much in the tank. The LR you see I just added about a month ago. I took out all the rubble and smaller rocks and went for the cleaner look.

Wow that tank is clean! LOL Lpve the huge coral, what is that a hammer or frogspawn? Either way looks good.

I see you have a metal halide, are you planning on some more awesome corals?

Thanks, I do bi-monthly scrapings on the side of the tank walls with a razor blade and weekly maintenance with my scrubber on the left. I have a small filter in there right now that I use for a few days after a WC to gather anything that may be floating around, then I remove. No skimmer due to tank volume and hardly any load to really produce a skim. yes, I do have a 150w hqi over the 10g lol most people call me out on that much wattage at such a low level. If the corals are acclimated to the intensity just right they love it. I did how ever burn up a SPS once, lol oops. maybe by the end of the month or next month I may add a plating coral. Yes, it's a frogspawn on the right. When I got the frogspawn it was no bigger then a quarter and now has 7 heads. I may look into fragging him soon. we are about to move in Jan-march when our house is finish being built. I am thinking of going larger but not to much larger.. Maybe 60g square and use this as a fragging tank since it's super stable.
