Another attempt on Nano Reef

Recommended Posts

Was very lucky to have gotten the display tank and sump FOC from another reefer. 

After some planning & DIY, I managed to start reefing.

From fellow reefers... In fact, only the clam, Copperband and CUC are from LFS.

Woke up to a flooded living room.

Had allowed the snail to enter the overflow compartment in the display tank to clear the detritus and algae. It was so hardworking that it decided to enter the durso pipe(pipe to sump). It choked the pipe and result in a fountain in the living room.

Lost about 10 liters of water. The culprit was still alive when it was yanked out of the pipe.

Fortunately, no casualties.

Another sad update...

Woke up to see the Copperband tossed around by the current. It eventually got lodged between the rocks. After some time it is motionless.

No idea what had killed it. (It's the only fish I have) I had only tried to feed it with mysis yesterday.
