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

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

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)
