    Hi Reef Community

    I started a nano reef in March 2019, it's my first tank. It currently houses two mocha snowflake clownfish, a tank bred watermelon anemone, a captive-bred sharknose goby, an emerald crab, trochus and nassarius snails, a conch, and some corals.

    The Evo has been okay, quite a bit of it has been replaced.

    Tank Upgrades this far:
    Kessil A160WE tuna blue
    marine pure ceramic media pure balls and blocks
    100 micron filter pad
    eheim pump
    hydor koralia 240 gph pump on timer kicking on and off every 30 minutes
    cheap amazon heater (need to upgrade)
    vivid creative aquatics random flow generator 1/2"

    The feeding schedule is 2-3 times a day with rinsed rods.

    So far so good! Any feedback is welcome!

    Tank bred watermelon bubble tip anemone. It's eating shrimp and salmon.
