Your reefs are amazing, Iam always truely at awe with some of these Picos...how they can be kept stable over the years. Most people fight day and night with their nanos. Proof to if you keep up on your water quality and have a good plan from the start anything is possible.

Very nice. I like Picos but I don't think I'd attempt one anytime soon

thank you for watching. you'd be surpised how easy these are to keep. Once something is this small and has been worked out, it's more repeatable than any larger tank because the variables start to increase the larger you get. for example, how many times have you seen someone's saltwater tank and theres tons of tubing, wires, and several hundred bucks in reef dosing bottles and test kits. I don't own anything other than the tanks and the air pumps that run them, and I test the salinity of the change water but none of these tanks are tested or dosed with anything other than a two part supplement and you get to keep the same corals! the only restrictions are internal temp of your house, it can never get above 78 if you want these to work...

i love your tanks! I am a big fan of picos myself. I own 2 saltwater picos. One half the size of a shotglass, and one about a tenth of a gallon. Which I beleive is the same Hobby Lobby container as those square ones you have. i keep asterina stars and a sponge in mine."Speak softly and carry a big stick"
I have lots of tanks, 9 I think.

thats great once you employ some type of evaporation management all sizes are possible and I really like your list of animal experience in your signature. nice to meet you all

i personally love asterina stars. i think they get a bad rap and are pinned for other bad reef behavior, all ive ever seen them do is eat detritus harmlessly. I keep about 15 in the bowl reef above and micro stars, you like those guys>?
