    Wink 5 Gallon Hardy Reef


    5 Not allowed!
    This is a new journal for my 5 gallon reef. As most of us know, nano reef keeping can be very hard and very unstable. So I will be using only 'hardy' corals and shrimp. At this moment, there is only a small patch of green star polyps and two blue legged hermit crabs. I am happy to be starting a new journal!

    The equipment:
    5 Gallon Aqueon with Lid
    AquaClear 20
    Aquatop Heater
    Aragonite Carib-Sea Gravel
    18 Inch Marine-Glow Actinic Flourescent
    White LEDs

    Good luck with the new SW tank!

    I didn't know SW was even possible with 5G, but I've no experience with the salty side.

    I too had never heard of such a small SW tank. That has to be tricky. Good luck and I will be following along.

    There are lots of them if you look on other forums and youtube videos. Now, as for how long they last without crashes, varies.

    Hey Waylon, that looks great!!! I love your rocks. I can't wait to see this progress.

    My 'new' SW LFS has a 5g nano next to the cash register, with hardy corals, a shrimp, and a cardinal fish of somesort. I don't recall the whole filtration setup, but there was no sump and it wasn't an AIO like my BioCube. I did see a bag of Purigen in there.

    The owner said it had been going for 18 months, so stability is possible :)

    I'm looking at some hermits for mine -- just have some green star polyps, a mushroom frag, a cleaner shrimp, a SPS frag I shouldn't have bought, 6 trochus snails, and a bunch of hitchhikers.

    I'll be following with interest!

    My 2.5g pico made it about 8 months before it crashed. Good luck!

    One of my old LFS's which was the best near me, use to have nano reef tank. It lasted 4 years while I shopped with him. And when he shut down the shop due to the earth quakes in NZ people asked for the small reef tank. But he kept it. It only had a small internal filter and some live rock LPS and a few shrimp. That was all.
