This is my late build thread for my IM 15G Cube!

Livestock:

2x Clown fish (zombie, snowflake)
1x Purple Fire fish
1x Hi Fin Red Band goby (basically invisible because he’s so tiny)
1x Porky Six Line wrasse (hasn’t been around for a week …. )

Invertebrates:
15x Blue leg hermits
4x Bumblebee snails
2x Trochus snails
2x Turbo snails
1x Anemone crab
1x Red Fromia (white tipped) starfish
(Not sure how many hermits and snails are left!)

Corals:
1x GSP
2x Pulsing Xenia
5x Chalice
2x Favia
2x Yuma Mushroom
1x Bounce mushroom
5x Zoas
1x Pectinia
1x Hammer
1x RFA
1x Blastomussa
1x Acan
1x Duncan

I do not test! Have two 30w Nicrew lights. No skimmer.

Currently in college and just setup a cheap tank to see what the hobby was like. Wasn’t expecting much so I went low budget. I have fallen head over heels in love with the hobby and can’t wait to upgrade my setup once I get a more permanent location.

Thanks for checking out my humble apartment setup!

(Phots start with current to recent images, some of the corals have been moved)

Mistakes-
I OVER FEED LIKE CRAZY

I’ve only lost fish so far (two bangaii cardinals because I housed an eel for a buddy of mine) (and a zombie clown) and am currently loosing that big green chalice. But I have exceeded my expectations as far as keeping corals goes without dosing or testing. Fish … not so much they are kind of hit or miss for me at this point. (I will take water into the store for an amonia test here and there just to be safe)
Definitely would change my lighting if possible (probably a reefbreeders nano).
Definitely would have bought a full range of salifert kits.
Thankfully no regrets … YET!
