Looks amazing! I can't wait to get corals in mine, I'm moving in the summer so I'm trying to hold off until then to make it a little easier

Awesome tank so far! My only critique would be to feed less. Once a day should be fine. Overfeeding leads to a lot of unnecessary problems. With a tank that small things can turn bad quick. Keep up the good work. Welcome to R2R!

Cute little tank Ashley, do you have an update? What is your light setting? I try to figure out what is the proper kessil setting color? Intensity? for an rbta, didn't find yet.

Hi and welcome to the club. :D I kept a EVO myself, they're smart little tanks.

I would say actually you are at a full bio load on that tank. I wouldn't recommend adding anymore fish than 4 to an EVO, but again this isn't a hard fast rule, just from personal experience. You also reached it very quickly, if you do decided to push forward I would wait a month maybe 2.

You could always expand your CUC. I would suggest sticking with snails but its a personal preference. Clown fish tend to get rather large for that tank so I'd keep an eye on them.

I used to keep Anemones in mine as well, That's a great looking Rainbow Anemone. But it's a safe bet it will move from that location towards the top of your rock. Mine did not like when I added a 2nd power head :rolleyes:. Try to keep the battle field clear when he starts moving. Also be patient with your clowns regarding the Anemone hosting it (it isn't there natural host, but will hopefully with time host them).

Sounds like you're off to a great start ;)
