Tracey I have stated everything that was put into that tank in the previous threads. As was stated live rock makes up the bulk of my "filter". Reread my posts and if you have any more specific questions about the set up or process feel free to ask me. It's a relatively easy tank now that it is up and running.

Mike you sorta have me hooked on the idea of clams they are very cool looking-Is there any clams that can fit in a nano tank?Cause once i get used to saltwater I think i will trade the mantis shrimp for some coral
P.S.(I would still love to set up that 30 gallon reef but unless i strike it rich it wont be happening soon-i cant get a job till next summer

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

TR I can get 1" maximas from my order list for $9. Too bad most shops sell them for $45. They need to be raised in a small environment with feedings of phytoplankton. They will need a good light source as well. I've seen a few living for a few months now in a standard JBJ nano cube. There is a site called nanotuners that can assist with adding even more lighting over stock. I only chose to use that 7g as it was a freebie in another trade.

I think i found the perfect lighting for salty wrenches tank
The Dual Satellite Compact Fluorescent Fixtures by current it is 12 inches long Two 18 watt compacts and it has led moonlights!
Plus it wont set him back to much money!
It will need to be used over a glass canopy
He could prolly grow a clam with this monster
