As promised I have taken pictures of my precious ten gallon.This tank has been through hell and back over the last 2 1/2 years. I have battle hair algae nitrates ect ect and lost a tank full of corals twice with the exception of a couple that made it the full duration.I have been sps bound for about 8 months now and in total this ten gallon holds over 27 different types of corals.I have 8 differnt types of snails and a cucumber.I have natural phytoplankton growing along with a very diverse fauna population.

Enough talking heres the pics.

Thanks guys! Razz

I am using a sleek coralife 20 inch modded into a 70 watt metal halide with 36 watt true actinic.

Heres a link for the mod with pics of how everything was done.

The most recent mod (actinic) is on page 3.

I was trying to get some top down shots.I thought these pics looked cool as the light was in the background instead of right in front of my fac/camera.

10 Gallon
All I have for filtration is the live rock.
Only additives I use is kalk in my top off water.



I like to keep things very simple.

What pumps you use? Whats the white pvc thingy and whats the green thingy left corner?

I am looking to get a 10gal hex going with liverock and a few simple corals and some clown fish (because they rule).

Wondering what I need to make it all happen.

Asside from the live rock, and sand. I will have 1-2 powerheads to move the water and keep all the salt mixxed, but as far as other things what else is needed?

Also whats that grate like thingy in the center on the back.

Sorry if these are dumb questions just want to educate myself before I delve into this.
