Cryptochiton's Mini-Reef

Post by Cryptochiton on August 6th 2013, 1:43 am

Thanks to the folks herein and at Coldwater Marine Aquatics, I've assembled my own reef tank...finally!  I will post some pictures to share to show the evolution, time permitting.  I set this up mid-June.

Cool! Is it temperate or coldwater?
What kind of a tank will it be, any fish in sight?

It will be mostly inverts I have collected at low tides.  I will add more photos once I get the picture situation resolved.  I have quite a collection of beauties.

Sounds good Smile
Do you live on the east or west coast? I would luuuv to see some east coast tanks!
Are you planning to keep that temperature all year, or will you simulate summer and winter temps? I think I will keep my tank in that same temperature in the winter time, that is around 13-14°C and a bit higher during summer, like 17-18°C (62-64°F).
