Well, got my little IM10 up and going. Couple LR, Cactus coral, Colt coral, Toadstool, LOTS of mushrooms, a Gorg, and a finger leather and this place is a nice and comfy home for a little clownfish and her itty bitty 1 1/4 Powder blue tang bestie. (Shhhh! Dont tell the tang police! Its just temporary until I get my Purple tang out of the DT and she is fully on frozen and nori). Going to start looking for new zoas to go in for just a little bit of added color.

Started making my stock list. Decided to go with mostly NPS softies, primarily because I am not using a full spectrum light at this time. Aside from some snails and a shrimp though, I can't decide on fish since I'm really limited to one or two in this small of a tank. Debating on (2) sm black clowns, (2) Helfrichi's, or (2) clown gobies.

Leaning away from the clowns because even if I get them small, they will eventually outgrow the tank and I would have to rehome them. I have other plans for the bigger tank and don't want to put 2 pairs of clowns in there.

You know you are going to REALLY have to stay on top of water changes with NPS. A tank that size and the volume of food they need == bad combo IMO from a maintenance perspective. But maybe things have changed... But would be really cool to look at up close!

Decided to go with a nem tank, I know ...... so original right?

Has 2 clowns, some hitch hiking mushrooms and about 6 nems. Doing 3gl water changes every week. Has a porcelin crab, couple of snails, and a small shrimp for clean up.

Here is my tank. I’ve had it for a year now and just got the purple birds nest and frogspawn from Cody. The toadstool is about 6 inches across and was only the size of a half-dollar when I got it 10 months ago. The Duncan only had three heads and now has over a dozen. My clownfish host the Duncan and the flowerpot coral, alternating between the two during the day. You can see him under the Duncan in the pic. The tank is a Fluval Evo 13.5 gallons. I ran the original lights which only turned on from actinic to white for 10 months. Just a couple of months ago I change to AI prime HD light. No dosing just 30% water changes every two weeks.
