My Insane Project
Here's a shot of my 2.5gal Reef. It's only about 3 weeks old. Only 3 corals in there for now. More to come though.

Uh wow. That is going to be a pain but a heck of an accomplishment if you get it going good. Keep a deal of water by it's side at all times, evaporation is the main concern in one of them.

Not a problem. I have a 10gal tank of top-off water sitting under my 125gal reef. I use that to keep both tanks topped up. The nice thing about that tank is that it has buffer in it for the Alk and it also has trace elements in it as well.

I would link it to your 125g to keep nutrients in it at all times. It could REALLY help big time or put like a 10g sump on it.New chatroom!

Well, with it's location neither of those are an option. I want to run it as an autonomous tank anyway. I have a Skilter 250 on it for water movement so it really gets a ton of water flow, the corals in it will be mostly Zoanthids and Green Star Polyps. The Skilter also has the advantage of adding another half gallon to the volume. It is a large challange but it's one that I really want to undertake, so far it's a blast.

Very cool. If you want, I have a bunch of nano tank stuff you can see if you want and we can trade or w/e.New chatroom!

thats a cool tank!
on ebay there was a cool 2.5g like yours, and the owner put a TINY overflow with a little 1g long sump, it was a crazy tank, went for $30

That's crazy. I know a guy here who did something similar, except he made his an all-in-one setup. I won't be selling mine. :)

Do you know what other types of coral you are going to put in it? As well as any inverts??
