    well, i believe it is a finger montipora. it is still the same color, but the tenticles are a neon green. everything is growing nicely!!

    Are you going to add substrate? In my experience nanos are high stress nightmares but if you can pull it off they are so beautiful. I think some LS would be nice to help with keeping nitrates down. Plus you wont have to worry about rocks cracking or scratching the bottom. Also Xenias would complement the tank very nicely because they are just so pretty and do vey well in nanos. Just a few suggestions but everything is looking nice man! Keep up the good work!

    Looks nice! The cool part about nanos is that you get to keep all kinds of odd ball sea creatures and corals that would die out or you would never see in big tanks!

    This one has been up for a year now. before then I ran it for five years. I love nanos . I don't think I would run a large tank.nanos are just too much time.

    Nice! I could never do that for some reason crabs make me bug out when they touch me. This coming from a guy who plays with spiders. XD It looks like a cute hermit too and the tank is coming along nicely

    Thank you. I'm taking this tank as slow as possible. Corals only, with a small clean up crew. Critters never seemed to bother me its fun watching them clear the dead skin off of you and not feeling it.

    added some mood lighting tonight. incorporated it into my viper.





    drilled a hole for the light to mount in in the arm. wires are hidden in with the light wiring.

    everything is still holding up well, got another green clown goby (had one years ago) and also a brain coral. ill get pictures once i get my glass anemonies under control again. corals are doing well. i cant seem to keep any SPS, but LPS love my tank. except polyps, i cant grow polyps.
