You tank looks awesome, I remember watching your videos when you were having issue with Ick in your tank but this is great transformation, I saw video of your Cube as refugium and your frag tank set up, How do you like your DC return pumps?

Sweet tank dude, just setup a 1100L tank myself and aspire to this level. Just going through coral selections etc now, have about 9 fish, 1 coral banded shrimp and CUC but have a long way to go. But 1 thing i have learned in this hobby (this is my second attempt at marine aquarium) is patience ... patience ... patience and then some more will bode you well.
Thanks for sharing.

Oh Man, That powerhead by that nem, is like waving a match by a fire. Not sure if You're crazy or brave !!! Beautiful Tank.
2008MrsKim - 5 years ago
Thank you. It was given to me as it didn't stay still in another persons tank. It is a huge Long tip. I will take your advice and see what needs to happen for it. I love nem talk
slief - 5 years ago
+2008MrsKim That said, I'm not sure what kind in anemone you have but if it's a BTA, then the above would be very applicable. FWIW, I've been keeping BTA's for about 20 years now.
slief - 5 years ago
+2008MrsKim A wandering nem is generally an unhappy nem. They like high flow and intense light. Light would be the first thing to consider. BTA's should not be fed. They are photosynthetic filter feeders and get their needed food for the fish feeding & nutrients in the water. Feeding is a common misconception among hobbyists. Many think feeding BTA's chunks of raw shrimp or silversides is a good thing but it actually stresses the nem out and will cause them to move or split. Stabile water quality & chemistry is a must. Sudden changes in temp or parameters will also cause them to move around or split. Just some food for thought.
2008MrsKim - 5 years ago
Wow, you are so lucky. Mine has been a wandering nem for a while. I have read so many horror stories that just seeing that made me cringe. Glad your guy is happy where he is. You know....It's a beautiful take and a Happy Nem...what more could you ask for right (;
slief - 5 years ago
+2008MrsKim The Anemone has been there for several years right next to the powerhead. He doesn't move and the powerhead pulses on and off. It's never been an issue and doesn't concern me at all. I've had this anemone almost 10 years now. It loves that spot because of the light and flow. If the anemone ever were to touch it, it will pull back immediately.

+SC Prepper I use a Genesis Renew for my automatic water changes. I just set it for my desired daily water change amount (5 gallons ) and the Renew takes care of the rest. All I need to do is mix up more water once a week. The video in the link below covers all my equipment included my Renew AWC and ATO.

SC Prepper - 4 years ago
slief how would you go about automating it? im looking at doing a 350g, and needless to say, water changes arent going to be easy. do you just let the evaporation and ato do natural wc's, or do you do some of it manually? maybe like a maitenace vid that shows what you do/ what equipment you have to do it for you? sorry if i sound dumb but right now i only have nanos and fw tanks.
slief - 5 years ago
+Mermaid Ocean I find the bigger the system, the less work because the system is more stable due to the water volume. That said, you do have more glass to clean and water to change. If your system is automated like mine, then the differences are negligible.

Very Nice Tank! :D

Could you recommend a tank builder?
slief - 5 years ago
+Stephen Gordon That's a tough one. My builder is local and he built my acrylic tank about 20 years ago and he doesn't do glass. I would suggest looking local to you and then doing a Google search to see what kind of reviews they have.

do you have any problems with that lemon peel eating/nipping your corals like frogspawn,zoanthids,lps,softies,torches,hammers etc......????? I've been told that they like to nibble on those type of corals and i should not get one but i really want one any advice?
slief - 5 years ago
+Steve Diaz In a smaller tank, it could possibly be an issue as I know others have had problems with them picking. I do however feed 3 times a day. They get my mysis at 1PM and pellets at 2PM via auto feeders and nori followed by more mysis and LRS fish frenzy at night when I hand feed.
slief - 5 years ago
+Steve Diaz My lemon peel has been a model citizen for the few years I've had it and I've never really noticed it picking at any of the corals.
