    Default floydie83's 1 gallon LED Powered Pico

    I have Jolson's old 1 Gal. Pico Powered by a 3W Cree LED (Cool White). Right now I have a 10W heater and an air-stone for circulation. I am looking for a very weak pump 30-40 gph to move water, but not really sure if it would be an improvement. Water changes will be used for filtration.

    As far as stocking goes:

    I have:

    1" sand bottom
    1-2 lbs of liverock
    1 margarita snails
    1 scarlet hermit

    and will add:

    1 peppermint shrimp or possible 2 sexy shrimp (gotta decide)

    For coral I will stick with the cheap stuff.

    Maybe GSP, no name zoas, or something cool i get at the swap

    Alright got some updates. New coral and livestock all taken from my home tank. Only have spent $20 on this bad boy. Thanks Jolson.

    Corals
    1 - blue mushroom
    1 - red mushroom
    3 - green implosion polyps (looking kinda bleached, i ****ed this colony off moving them up too quickly)
    2 - kenya trees (really taken off)
    1 - GSP (1"x1")

    I might try to get a couple more polyps in before the deadline...

    Livestock
    1 - red leg hermit
    1 - peppermint shrimp (stares at me at work all day and ate the few aiptasia in there)
    1 - margarita snail

    See the photos below
