    Hi All,

    So I started this Hobby back in April of this year (2019) I entered a competition on another Forum where I kept a Pico Reef for a period of 9 months. I absolutely loved this tank on my desk at work and eventually upgraded to a Red Sea Reffer 130D. But I miss my Pico, so I have set it up again and plan on stocking it in the new year.

    Tank Details
    Tank: 12 Litre "Standard"
    HOB: Hydro Ripple HR450 (450 lph/ 120GPH)
    P/Head: Hydor Evo Nano Mag 650 (650lph/ 170GPH)
    Light: 18W PAR38 Bulb
    Heater: 50W adjustable
    Biofilter: 1.5KG Ceramic Reef Rock
    200G Bio Spheres (cycled in big tank since 01.10.2019)

    This takes us more or less up to date, I have an Urchin in my Larger system so I will be having a large amount of Algae Frags that I can add to this system.

    I have also added some LPS Corals that need some more care and attention, so can use this system as a Hospital tank of sorts, but it seems that I have reached my upload limit so next post.

    @Ratvan This forum is all but dead, it will probably be taken offline soon by the new owner. Why don't you join up at the new forum the admins have set up to preserve the Saltybox name.

    It would be good if you could transfer the basics of this tank thread over too to preserve it before it's lost forever
