So, seeing as how this tank is now completely different than it was at the start, I'm gonna redo this post to clue readers in as to what's changed. This tank started out as a jar reef, and eventually got moved over to a 2.5 gallon, and then to a 5.5 gallon. I still have the the jar set up, in my other thread (found in my bio), but this is my "main" tank. Current Livestock: Fish: 1 4-striped-damsel (around 1" at the time of editing, will probably get moved to a 10 gallon in the coming years) Inverts: 1 Mexican Turbo Snail 1 Red Legged Hermit 4 Cerith Snails Coral: Brown/Green Zoas Orange Zoas Green Star Polyps Macroalgae: Red Branching Macro (don't have any other name for it) Red Dragon's Macro Caulerpa Prolifera Mystery Caulerpa embedded in the GSP Equipment: Flow: Top-Fin 10 Gallon HOB (running carbon) Top-Fin 10 Gallon Internal Filter Heater: Tetra 50W Preset Lighting: 12" Freshwater LED Planted Fixture 12W 6500K CFL Tank Info: I had hoped to keep this tank pretty softy and macro dominated, and that plan hasn't changed. I do want to eventually get my hands on some LPS and SPS, but those are probably a long way down the road. As for stocking, I'm probably done adding inverts and fish unless the need for more CUC appears. I'm at (probably a little over) stocking capacity with the damsel, and honestly, I don't want another fish in this tank. Too much work for too little gain. I'm running barebottom to make siphoning up muck from the bottom of the tank easier, and also to give my GSP free reign to take up the bottom of the tank. The lighting situation is a bit jank, but I plan on eventually replacing the current fixtures with a single LED fixture or possibly a PAR 38. Just trying to find something that'll give my macros and corals good color and growth without breaking the bank. Tank Params: Ammonia: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 5-10 Temp: 76F (I'm too lazy to list all of my other parameters) So yeah, that should catch anyone up to where this tank is as of today. Doing great, just gotta keep on upgrading what I got and filling as my wallet allows. The joys of high school.
