2.5 Pico Build
I would just like thank Dallops for making want a pico... once again

Here's the new tank. It's a 2.5g that i picked up from Wal-Mart a while back. I had used it for a tank before, but decided not to do it anymore because of a reason i can no longer remember... yeah.
Dirty, but here it is.
With sand
Live rock and water. I pured the water onto a bag placed on top of the sand so it wouldn't create a sandstorm. It's only been about 10min or so
Full tank with some stand showing. I'm not planning on upgrading lights right now, but there is a hitch hiker from the 55g if you can see him.
At the current there's only about 4wpg or so and i think the tank with all the LR and DSB is only just under 2g of water... wish me luck

LOL, yeah... i think i'm beating you though :-P. I have a coral in mine... weather or not it lives is another question though.

LOL, i keep asking my wife if i could get an Above ground swimming pool, cut a rectangle out the side and stick a acrilic window, then fill it with sand and everything and have a hole in the roof above it and make it a reef... It'd be 3ft deep and who knows how long with an unheard of amount of LR and sand... and the corals would look good too... I wish

I actually have that coral still living and well. I had just move the rocks into the tank so it's fine now that the lights are on... so in short, I'm winning 8)
