jolson10450's 2.5g mini pico nano contest entry!
Just starting the forum to reserve my space for this contest.
I will have a 2.5g aquarium ( 12x6x8 ) powered by a 3x 3w cree LED lights. 1x cool white 2x royal blue leds, a koralia nano for flow, and a 25w heater. No other equipment will be added! this will be a water change tank, i pretty much do water changes to keep parameters in check.
My plans for it are:
1-1.5" sand bottom
3-4lbs of liverock
2 margarita snails
1 blue leg hermit
1 peppermint shrimp
possibly a tiny goby
and the entire coral stock will all be Acan Lords if it all goes as planned and the leds don't bleach them!
Only time will tell as i will be starting the set up tomorrow of getting the sand and rock in it so it is ready on the day of the contest. It should cycle within a day or two using existing live rock and live sand from a previous tank and i will be using already cycled water from a water change on my other tanks. The reason i want the peppermint and the tiny goby in the tank is because when i feed the acans some mysis i want to be sure i have a decent enough cleaning crew to take care of the pieces that miss the coral. I may also do a pair of sexy shrimp instead of the goby.
Does anyone else have any other input for me as far as a fish i could use or something else cool to put in a tank this small? I DO NOT want another pistol shrimp! so that is out of the question! Thanks!
