Very nice tanks, unique is kind of an understatement in this case.No matter how much I learn or know I'm still gonna be a NOOB, but that doesn't mean I'm an idiot!

That is awesome. i just recently started my 0.01gallon pico marine tank.
Yes, one hundredth of a gallon. 21 milliliters. Hope it survives. All it has is 2 bristle worms and chaeto. Im thinking its too small."Speak softly and carry a big stick"
I have lots of tanks, 9 I think.

lol on the 21 ml tank Im thinking people might think im trying to do ridiculous things but i promise these are an experiment in bare bones approaches and the shapes and sizes of the tanks aren't just for novelty they actually control physical parameters of the tank...hopefully that justifies the palmtop approach lol
the vase has a lid that fits exactly on the inner diameter of the neck of the vase, and directs all the airstone splatter back down into the bowl without salt creep. This presents partial evaporation control in a very real and measurable way...how many gallon reefs you know run 3 days in between topoffs~ so it wasn't just the size, the shape matters more.
The little palmtop sps reef is sealed totally and does not evaporate, something not done in any size reef tank so that is also a unique physical character as well. the shape matters because it is a very very small square tank, which fits under very small reef lighting, which prevents temp issues which all larger sealed reefs would have to mitigate. Here's a few more pics. i already posted these in the nano forum but i know a lot of people don't check out other forums so here's a few for this thread to show sizing...the day I can find a ten gallon glass vase it's on! for the mean time im stuck with gallon sized models
lastly the main separation id like to state between these tanks and the novel/temporary ones would be the four years life span and coralline so thick you can't chip it off without breaking something he he

here are some laser-clear sps tabletop pics of acropora growth for two years in the palmtop sealed tank. This is table top acropora growth at 3 inches in diameter, smallest table top you'll find anywhere fo sho! hope a remote host of these pics is okay, I didn't want to download them all on my work pc Id rather just copy and paste the links

Man dude....I seriously love your tanks! You use the palm galaxy light(is it called that?) on the sps tank. How much does electricity cost for you? What all equipment so you use on it? water changes? Sorry for all the questions but I just tried corals and it has proven successfull."Speak softly and carry a big stick"

I have never -ever- appreciated the look of "reef tanks" until seeing this:
