Vid of my 29 gallon.
 
Hey I want to share my tank so that I can get some critique on my tank, let me know whether you like it or not what you think I should add/take away ect.

The tank is a 29 gallon, five and a half weeks old and it has two clowns a royal gramma and a damsel. The parameters are grate and that why I have the new Xenia in there, added maybe 1 hour before I taped the tank. There is still lots to do!

First off. WOW. that tank is beutiful. second thing. have you thought of putting in some peepermint shrimp. they can clean up some food from the floor. im not a saltwater fishtank person. so maybe you dont need them but i have seen those in tanks like yours and they are pretty. The tank looks great.

Well, looks good, but for a few things. And I am usually the guy with the bad news. First is that tank cycled? Looks awefully new for fish, let alone Corals. Bottom middle looks like we have some Mojano Anemones in there also. Couldnt' tell what Feather Duster hitchhicker you had there, but that a good thing. Also, nice job on the lighting. Flow doesn't look adequate, little on the thin side. I know your probably using that filter as part of the equation, but you can't, its not consistant, and only breaks the surface. I see the one in the back middle, but cna't id the flowrate. But, you got er done!!

Thanks, I have moved some things like I re-did the aquascape and got some zoas, yes I know that it is new but I could not handle the wait. The corals are doing grate, I am in the mids of an algae bloom and my phosphates are high. The xenia likes phosphates and it is bigger know. Zoas are new but they did open up in the first hour of being in my tank. I have coralline growth but not much just deep red coralline. I did have A LOT of hair algae on the back and sides but had to clean it up soo know im stuck with some diatom blooms. The filter helps out on the flow and I switch the filter pad every week. the tank has a 620gph powerhead but only because the xenia requires low flow. Thanks for the critique.

I don't mind the mojano anemones they don't bother the other corals and they look better than mostly all aiptasia species.
