    Default My 5 gallon sps pico reef

    hi everybody i am new here. and thought i would start everything off with a little bit about my tank. its just a 5 gallon minibow marineland tank that i have customized to be reef capable with a hang on back filter powerhead heater and live rock. i did have a par38 bulb over the tank but it was crap so i now have an actinic panorama module mounted over it.

    this is the tank as of now. with the CUC damsel and kenya tree frag. not much yet just getting started with this tank.

    i also have several other tanks including two small dwarf seahorse tanks.

    sorry its a bit dirty and the rockscape is not permanent, just waiting till i have time to put some thought into it.

    Welcome to CR. That's a nice pico you are developing.

    I would love to hear about your dwarf seahorse experiences... I just started a thread to get feedback from seasoned dwarf keepers. Please click HERE to go to the thread and add some content.

    i do not have any pics but i did make a a nice stand for it instead of just setting it on my desk. i can easily hide the wires and it looks great. i have not added anything new to the inside of the tank aside from a add on to the cleanup crew. the tank has kind of been on the bak burner. i consolidated the seahorses to the other tank and created the one tank to a nano vivarium for my new panther gecko. i will try to get pics of everything tomorrow.
