Love this one! So bright!
INNOVATIVE MARINE NUVO FUSION 10 GALLON (my first reef!)
This tank is currently about to be 8 months old. It's had its fair share of ups and downs, but overall, it's coming along!
My goal is just to achieve stability, and keep stocking corals from there. I plan on adding an Aussie Gold Torch, Rainbow Chalice, growing a Zoa Garden, and more rainbow acans!
Some notable corals in the tank are the GSC Fang Banger Zoas (Like Sonic Flares or Vamps but stronger yellows), Red Roses Monti Cap, Beach Bum Monti (currently working on coloring it up), and Dragonfruit Monti. It's very much a work in progress so I don't expect to make it onto the 365 but I'm proud of the work I've done and overcoming the massive learning curve of this rewarding hobby!
How often does some one get picked? 1 a week 1 a day 1 a month?
Its suppose to be one a day and I do apologize. Life is extremely hectic right now. I'm going to try to consistently get this done every day.
No I was just curious ur all good. I know life is crazy right now. But thanks for the reply and maybe I'll see my tank up there some dayIts suppose to be one a day and I do apologize. Life is extremely hectic right now. I'm going to try to consistently get this done every day.
It’s almost been a year since I set up my tank; March 10th, 2019 is the actual anniversary. However, I can’t wait to post the pictures. I took a lot of advice from some of the members, so I wanted to share it with you.Hello Reef2Reef'ers!
Let me preface this post by saying that your tank doesn't have to be packed full of mature sps coral colonies and have the best gear to be included, or even have coral at all (FOWLR are welcome!). But we will need a decent photo.
We want to start a new series of threads where we feature a Reef Tank from one of our members. It will be a simple bit of info and photo of your tank with link to your build thread. If you're interested then please share a full tank shot that you're proud of along with the following data.
All of these are required or your tank cannot be featured.
- Full Photo
- Tank Size
- Date Started
- Link to R2R build thread
And that's it!
If we use your tank then your tank will receive recognition and you will receive a spiffy new "Reef Tank 365" badge under your name!
And don't forget to subscribe to the hashtag #ReefTank365 to view the pick of the day.
