Howdy, this is my 7.4g Peninsula set up at the beginning of January. This is my third tank 10g or under in the past 3 years.

The tank is LPS dominated but I'm trying to change that with SPS in the top half of the rock structure

CORALS/INVERTS:
The left rock has alveopora, very young zoa garden, and a very nice Blue Ravens blasto frag (tbh this might be my favorite coral in the tank) :grinning-face-with-big-eyes:

The middle rock is set higher at an angle and contains my beginner friendly sps (with one failing acro :disappointed-face:) and also contains LPS at the lower angled side

The right rock has one coral so far, my 3 year old duncan. He started as one head and now has over 50 :star-struck: (but TBH he's probably going to go to new home at the Mississippi Aquarium. He's getting too big and I don't want to chop him up)

I also have some anemones. The RFA is 3 years old and the BTA is relatively new addition

FISH:
Livestock includes two designer clownfish (a basic longfin and a super storm which I feel like is just a mislabeled orange storm) and a shy orange spotted watchman (no picture)

LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEM:
Equipment includes a Red Sea 50 ran on 75% blue and 30% white
And also has a Nero 3 ran at a max of 35%

Overall, I like my little reef :)

Update: added green trumpets and a peppermint shrimp to eat my small aptasia problem (he already solved it )

While I do still have the Pom Pom crab, he’s definitely a very very nimble and shy little creature. Currently, he hangs out in a small cave that’s covered by one of the Duncan heads, but only when the tentacles are extended. Tight fitting space, but he calls it home :)

Looks great for just being started in January. I started a new setup around the same time

Yeah the only thing I’m irritated at is the montis. I’ve had montis in the past and they like almost visibly grew daily. But it doesn’t seem these are growing anywhere near as fast. Granted, the last time I tried montis, I put them in at the 4-5 month mark. I put these in almost on day 1
