Binosage's 24G nano tank


Recommended Posts

Hi all, just wanna share pics of my recently upgraded 24 gallon JBJ nanocube. Many have asked me to post pictures of my tank previously, but then, shy lah... I'm more interested in fish, inverts and crustaceans, whatever little corals I have is just to add small splatters of colours here and there.

Nothing much compared to many other old birds, but thanks for looking anyway :)

Will post more pics when time permits. :P

Thanks bro, was using your tank as reference (and lesson on what not to do - when your tank crashed ). Thanks for taking the time to reply my queries regarding the 24G nanocube too. BTW, I insta

Dunno why he loves having his pictures taken, seriously, he rushes to the front and poses whenever I'm with a camera. Maybe thomas_lim takes photos of his tank often and is a familiar sight haha :lol:

Terror comes in small packages, 1 inch long clownfish:

Now you know why ML lists it as red ocellaris clownfish. It's really this red, depending on how close to the light it swims.

Both trained to eat mysis shrimps and hunt for pods in the basket of chaeto in the day.

Porcelain crab, the smaller one is MIA:

Bubble coral is home to the clownfish, and sometimes, pompom crab too.

looking great bro~! :D

Thanks bro, need to go gai gai with you soon and hunt for gems! :eyebrow:

nice blotchi!! its bigger than ur LR! haha

No la, it is swimming against the glass, actually it is between 2.5 and 3 inches from mouth to tail. The small clownfish alters the perspective and makes it look big, hahaha.

Bro, the blotchi looking great in your tank.

Colours still as vibrant!!! ;)

Yup, all thanks to you for taking good care of it, it is really in good shape and health. It is the most entertaining resident in the tank now. :upsidedown:

:shock::shock: nice....i love to see a clean tank, so pleasant to the eyes...what's next on yr list bro? more LPS or SPS perhaps...

No sps or lps for me. I prefer soft corals like rics and zoas, cos can get them from bros here in frags to patch up bald spots in the rocks haha. Maybe will keep a clam when I'm confident enough, or a small anemone (don't worry, got experience keeping them :P)

The crab MIA liao. Probably became a nice meal for the blotchy. I couldn't find it even when I was moving the rocks around that day. :(

And yep, my ls are all behaving weirdly. But that's also why I like marine fish, more personality :P

zoom in on tht zoas we nid a positive ID.... :rolleyes:

how come only 3 poylps?

You mean this one?

post-15730-1238404701.jpg

Only the one on the extreme right seems to reflect the true colour leh. All the zoas have been in the tank for only a few weeks, haven't recover from my constant molesting while transferring and tank scaping haha. The ones on the left supposed to be pink zoas too, but they lost colour after shock from the change of light. Will upgrade my lights soon :P

Thanks bro, was using your tank as reference (and lesson on what not to do - when your tank crashed :whistle ). Thanks for taking the time to reply my queries regarding the 24G nanocube too. :)

BTW, I installed the 2700l/h pump to feed the chiller, super strong jet of water even after traveling thru 3.5 metres of hose!

I got this from ML free when I was buying something else there. Originally had 3 polyps, but I ran out of super glue and since it is stuck on a dead shell, I just stuck it in the sand first. Sadly, one polyp floated off the other day, cannot find it now.
