All I can say is the IQ3 is definitely not user friendly for reefers with big hands! Such a tight squeeze in the filter compartment. Also, once your hand goes in, water comes out, so you immediately transform it into a zero edge tank! :upsidedown:

For the IQ3, its more like the other way round, selecting the right stuff to put into the tank, rather than the usual setting up of equipment to cater to the stuff you want.

Give me more suggestions on fish options! I have 2 sexy shrimp and an anemone crab. Might swap it for a pom pom if I ever come across one.

It is shallow enough to use chopsticks! LOL.

Very nice pics btw, forgot to mention earlier. I'm surprised the yumas hold up so well in the IQ3. :bow:

Haha... I bought those plastic tongs. Very handy, but I wished it was a tad bit longer.

I tried zoas, but the stock LED lights are definitely not strong enough. My yumas didn't do very well with strong lights in my office tank (ie LEDs & T5 HOs) so I figured they should do better in the IQ3. I guess it turns out well so far!

A mushroom tank!! Peace, I honestly felt so excited to see you starting one yourself. Haha, I've tried countless times but in the end my mushrooms start to melt away. Hope the mushies fill up your tank quickly.

Thanks bro! No modifications were done to the lights. I simply bought the marine version. It has a slight blue hue to it, making it more pleasing to the eye for a marine setup.

I'm also looking forward to the IQ5, rated at 13 liters (IQ3 = 6.5 liters). I'm guessing it should approx. be the size of a 1ft cube? Also, I think it comes with a better and programmable LED lights. According to Dymax personnel, it should be released around the 4th quarter this year.

it should be still only be about half the volume of a one feet cube.

I just bought an Elongated Dottyback yesterday from Ah Beng's. Its a very sweet looking fish! Very actively exploring the tank now. With its streamline body, it can easily maneuver around small crevices and rock work. I'm loving it! :wub: If anyone has more information on this fish, pls kindly share?

I think like most dottybacks, it is a little aggressive. I saw it disturbing the sexies. Well, I wouldn't mind keeping it in place of the shrimps though...

Lol... each of us have our different tastes. Plenty of fish in the ocean for everyone! :friends:

yup.

the elongated dottyback is quite common in ahbeng. i've attempted to pair them before and was successful. but sold both away after awhile.

I wished the red mushies could open a little bigger, but they remain tiny. Not too much a complaint though, since space is a constraint for this tank.

I've glued the GSP to the bottom of the tank. Hope in due season, it will carpet the bottom.
