    This is a 12 gal nano that I recycled from Mario (xcaret) and the live rocks from another BAR member as well. The system is basic with some membranes filters: 100 and 50 microns. Light is a nano ai sol. I just top off with ro/di and have not changed water for months.
    I am slowly testing out coral growth: zoas and lps do well. The sps bleached out more than I can say.

    image.jpg Dan (trigger) gave me three firefish today, and like a hoarder I am, I took them.

    My sps bleached out again and again, probably due to bioloads:)
    Thinking of vodka or nopox dosing on this micro environment. Any opinions?
    And no, I ain't getting rid of the fish:)

    I use bio-pellets & supplement with nopox at times to help keep my ULNS...

    Why not change water? Such a small tank makes for easy changes...

    Too lazy?
    No, you're right, I gotta get on that routine today. I didn't think about that because I never change water on it. Thanks, that was simple. I will update in a few weeks once I put a trial frag in to test

    Are you kidding? Great that you take in the free creatures. Not great that they are not getting cared for. :(

    You're right, too, whether or not I paid or got for free. I would love to get sps to grow in this nano.
