    Thanks! Not to shabby for 22 gallons!

    Thanks for stopping by! It's definitely getting there. I think the frag racks removed will make a world of difference.

    Thank you, very much!

    Thanks for checking it out. I'm at the hardest part now, which is waiting for things to just grow out and keep up with basic maintenance.

    So what are your thoughts on sand in such a small space. I see it is all blown from the front. I went without sand in my nano and I'm just wondering how much of a pain it would be

    Ah, the age old debate. I personally love the look of sand. I like just a little bit to handle some of that bio diversity that I don't think you'd get without it. That being said, I hate the fact that it's not even, but you gotta figure it's like that in the wild. It's interesting that you ask, as I've been debating more and more about siphoning it out with each water change. I'm seeing enough coraline growing, and I could use the space to grow zoas on the bottom of the tank. I guess to answer your question, I'm on the fence, I've had both types of tanks.

    This is my first bare bottom tank and I'm amazed at the life on the glass. I still don't have coralline yet (I can't wait) but once the bottom got a little biofilm on it the isopods and copepods went crazy and are covering it. Even with crazy high flow in my tank there are pods everywhere (I don't have fish so they have free reign). Way more pods on the bottom glass than I ever remember in my sand beds

    I'm sure that no fish has a lot to do with it, but also the visibility is probably different!

    Yeah I'm sure there was a lot of microfauna I didn't see in the sand bed
