I guess I'll make a thread for my tank.
Details:
Tank size: 10 gallon
Rock:12 pounds
Filter: Marineland penguin 350
Skimmer: Odyssea Clean 100
Light: AuquaKnight
Heater: Fluval 200watt
Fish: 1 black clownfish, 1 chocolate mocha clownfish
Inverts: 2 hermit crabs, 3 nassarius snails
Corals: 4 disco mushrooms, candycane coral, green star polyp, xenia.
Substrate: sand
Food: Omega One marine pellets.
Parameters: ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrates 0
Running time: 2 and a half months
I use an aquatic life rodi filter for my water and use Instant Ocean salt. Forgive me for the horrible coral pics, even though I have been doing photography for two years corals are a whole different ball game. The green star poly isnt very happy because I just cleaned some algae off it. Also if anyone knows the names of the mushrooms I have that would be awsome. Any sugestions or comments are welcome.

Update: my marineland penguin has oficially given up on me after sand got in the impeller so I had to replace it with an aquaclear. My gsp was absolutly covered in hair algae when I came back from vacation but is now all clean after a hydrogen peroxide dip. I am curently trying to deal with a mild green hair algae peoblem but hopefull my brush I just ordered will help with that. A few of my mushrooms were not very happy when I came back too but they have now recovered.

Update...
My filter went out on me so I replaced it with an aquaclear 20 and I love it, I also added an ato.
Sadly my xenia randomly died but I head they just do that sometimes. The mushrooms were not so happy so I moved them to a lower level in the tank and lowered the lights and they are now starting to look alot better. I also added some rock and changed the scape into a u shape leaving an open area in the front of the tank. The clowns have also been showing some breeding behaviour.

A little update.
So one of my shrooms were too close to the light but was already attached to the rock but it needed to be moved as it was doing horrible. I tried to pull it off and ended up ripping it in half but happily they healed and I now have ended up with two.
