    Thanks, right out of the box I really disliked it but the way I have it going now it is pretty pain free.

    The blue one is really friendly like a cleaning shrimp, he jumps on my hand and tries to clean when I'm crushing up flakes for them underwater.

    IMO That is the best way to run a pico. Having a much much larger sump will keep the system manageable.
    Great job!

    You cant possibly know how you want to run your reef-system, until you have ran one.

    Thanks Peppie, It sure lets me feed as much as I want to vs all the other small tanks I've had where I had to really worry about polluting the system.

    Also, not too bad for about a week old but I've noticed the Ora Joe the Coral is starting to encrust over the glue

    Great actinic shots.
    What camera are you using, and what settings?

    Thanks

    Canon T1i on manual 1/20, f7.1, ISO100, AWB and just correct color via the windows image editor. Colors are pretty dead on but without correction they looked a bit purple.
