2 nano tanks need to combine this week. My 12G Mr. Aqua rectangle shape tank, and a 6.6G Edge tank.
This is "temporary" until I find the right deal on a nicer SW
35 Gallonish tank.
My options were a 20G long /20G H or my 46G Bowfront.
Just for the ease of care for 3 fish I picked the 46G bowfront. It is a nice looking tank and just sitting in my living room empty.
I need to make RO
water for the tank. I have some salt / been buying prepared SW
from the store because I don't need much of it.
Also I have a 36" basic light for the tank a Beamswork blue white.
And a too long 48" Orbit Marine used by someone for only a few months before they got a new tank.
Also rather not make an algae farm out of the tank either.
My only other light for SW
atm is a PAR 38W.
Last night picked up a 20G bag of CaribSea Alive Black Hawaiian sand and already had some maybe 20 lbs in the 12G. Reg. 29.99 for $16.19 Love price matching. Need one more bag I think since I am using a bigger tank (was gonna be a 20G) than initially thought.
Also side note I have a Rubbermaid tote still cycling 50 lbs of rock since early fall. (6 - 7 months maybe). Feeding it fish food every week or 2. Was better about feeding it months ago Feel like for 3 months was very good at that. Last few winter months not as good. So maybe not a super good bacteria colony.

Had a small Blue Banded Coral shrimp (gets~1 inch) Always hiding too.
and a regular color Pistol shrimp (which I always would think was dead but would find him in his home under the rocks the past 3-4 tank changes (several years). It has been so long I would think he passed away by now.
Haven't seen the last Sexy shrimp or the Pom Pom crab for a long while.
