    Not much to update, I'd take a picture but the tank looks dirty with all the pods crawling all over the glass. I have a Monticap Frag coming sometime soon and supposedly some pink and some blue zoas as well (hint hint) so I will get some pics and an update when those all arrive.

    Gem.....Ed's post is what we call sarcasm-A statement in which it is obvious from context that the speaker means the opposite of what he or she says. lol!

    Can't wait to see the tank finished GB! Sounds like you won't be able to go very far from home for awhile, those things need a ton of maintenence!

    I have a very tight fitting lid and I run my SG on the low side. I can actually get away with not topping it up for a couple of days without any problems. Nitrates won't get out of hand, I have no fish or shrimp to create problems. The only thing I need to stay on top of is my Alkalinity, Calcium, and orther essential elements and those I get when I top up and when I do water changes. All my corals are small right now so none of those things are being used quickly.

    My question is how you can even work with 2.5 gallons of space. I was wanting a 2.5g reef for my computer desk, until I found out how much maintenance would go into it and that the cost to set up a 10-20g was not dramatically higher.

    You use 10" tweezers for aquascaping Tigerbarb. There's very little room to use your hands, I don't use my hands in my tanks anyway.

    It is hard to tell sometimes, since you can't hear the persons voice.

    What are you keeping the calcium and SG at in that tank ILMGB?

    Nick, I use Oceanic Salt so my Ca reading is usually over off the scale of my test kit but after a while it does drop and it is maintained about about 500-600. I keep the SG in the tank at right around 1.023 to allow for the small amount of evaporation that I get. When the tank is full it is at 1.023 but will creep up to about 1.024 with evaporation.

    500-600? Wow! That's pretty high GB. It's my understanding 450 is good but s/b under 500. At least that's what reefers here agree on. But then.....I could be wrong.

    tigerbarb - no there isn't a whole lot of room to work with....but you can make a really nice aquascape in a 2.5. I have often posted a FTS of my 2.5 pico and had people shocked that it was that small as they said it looked from the picture to be at least a 20. But, yes they require alot of maintenance. Even a 10 gal isn't for the lazy aquarist. 2.5 gal even more so. the whole idea of doing a pico that small is the challenge of it. Kind of a "because I can" thing. I've done it quite succesfully. It takes dedication.....or rather close to obsessiveness.......to keep one going healthy.
