My 2.5g desktop reef
I work in a shop and business always gets pretty slow in the winter. I decided to start a small tank on my bench so I'll have a hobby in the upcoming season. I got a 2.5 gallon allglass and a 12" strip light with a 20 watt 50/50 pc bulb. I used aprox 4 lbs of live rock from my sump at home and aprox 5 lbs of live sand from my reef at home. I am running an azoo palm h.o.b. filter, a small heater, and an airstone. So far I have 5 small colonies of zoas, a couple mushrooms, brown star polyps and green star polyps, 1 hermit, 2 astrea snails, and 1 small blue and gold damsel. Tank has been up and running for about 2 weeks and all is well. I am really impressed with how well the azoo palm filter works. Its completely silent and can move quite a bit of water for its size.
Before any stock was added, shows the size of the display next to my laptop.
