    Default "Little" Vittles 12 Gallon Nano Entry

    Getting a late start here, had a little super glue mishap LOL. This is my 9 year old sons venture into reef tanks. Upgraded him to an Eclipse system 12 when I saw them at Petco for $32 right before Christmas. He previously had a 10 gallon. I squeezed a 28 watt PC into the hood but didn't feel comfortable about the safety of it with a young one, so went with the dinky 13 watt PC to be safe. Stocking it with frags from my tank. Will get a list and pictures up tomorrow. He's super excited to have a "nice" tank now. He told my wife that he things it's nicer than Dad's 150 Gallon.

    yeah, he liked that 10 gallon that we got from you Jim, but couldn't pass on the eclipse system for $32. He did pretty good with the 10 gallon with a couple zoo's, the war coral that Shane gave him at the A2 swap, some gsp and stuff. Don't expect any crazy growth from this tank with the little lights, but the kid is super pumped to have a "fancy" tank now, and thats all that matters. I will get a stock list and pictures up today. Need to read the rules about the pricing thing, as everything will come from my tank.

    I just saw the thing in the rules about posting a CR is great picture next to the tank. I forgot to do this. I just set the tank up last night, what should I do now? He had like 3 or 4 small frags in his old tank that where transferred to this tank, and the rest along with most the rock came from my 150.

    Is it possible to maybe clear the frags out, to show nothing has grown in, and all were just placed? Then get a pic with "CR is Great".
