    Thanks Jamie. But I actually don't own any acros. The green nepthea looks a lot like an acro in the latest shots though.

    I wouldn't call it embarrassing. I would call it flattering!

    Any who, here's the final stock list...

    No code has to be inserted here.

    And a some final thoughts...

    Keeping this little tank has been quite an adventure for me. I find it much easier to enjoy the details of the liverock, corals, and all the other critters in a smaller tank. In some ways it is easier to take care of than a larger tank (e.g. water changes of only a few cups). Although there have also been some serious frustrations (chronic cyano issues and a suspected seam leak).

    Overall, I have enjoyed being the steward for this pico ecosystem, as well as watching all the other nano in the contest develop into unique systems of their own. I'd like to thank CR and Orphek for inspiring me to try my hand at a pico tank. I have been fascinated with them for years but always had an excuse to not set one up. Good luck to all of the remaining nano contestants!

    Oh, and if you're thinking about setting up a pico... DO IT!

    Tom

    FTS w/ white background. Corals don't look as nice but it shows the aquascape a lot better.

    I couldn't figure out what was catching my eye so much but now I know. It's how NATURAL this lil tank looks. It doesn't look *made* but like it just grew that way. It also looks mature. All settled in and homey

    Great looking pico! I didn't realize just how cool it was until I saw the shot with the gallon jug. That really makes me think wow!
