Jacob's 24g Aquapod

Post by Jacobnano on October 20th 2009, 11:26 pm

This is my (technically) 1 year old tank. It has been re-scaped and basically emptied out 3 times but now I am probably going to keep it about the same. It is a mixed reef, SPS, LPS, softies clams, everything. The lighting is a 150w sunpod, and a coralife 14k bulb that will be replaced with a phoenix soon. I have a sapphire aquatics skimmer, it is currently awaiting a new impeller as mine shattered. Not really running any chemipure purigen etc. or cheato in this tank. Stock return pump and two koralia ones for flow. Anyway, an unknown weight of live rock, about two inches of live sand and thats about it.

As of right now I have basically SPS and clams. A couple palys/zoa, and thats about it. I have one clown fish. Here are the funny parts, one huge almost two feed across brittle star, he eats the weak. The other is a peppermint shrimp, really no problem but he should probably go.

I suck at tank pictures, a lot so these are pretty bad. You can get the idea of it. Ignore the two big rocks in the middle, I recently re-scaped and had those left over.

Mines longer than ten inches lol.

Umm they need intense light, and they use a ton of calcium and alk. that plus a stable tank and their care isn't too bad. I do dose my tank a lot though.
