    Very cool, the pico tanks can be a lot of fun

    What type of equipment are you running on this baby?

    so, I'm running this led fixture thats called an aquatop skyled 24" so it hangs off a little. Also found that aquatop made a little circulation pump that pushes i want to say 256gph. Im using stock filteration method, but switched out the carbon to chemi pure. then just using a little 25watt heater. so far so good. birdsnest is open and appears to be thriving as well as the other corals I have. I plan on buying the advanced moonlight system from steve's leds soon because the fixture doesn't allow for seperate moonlights so there isn't night time enjoyment.

    Just got my 5 gal Fluval reef pico up after a 35 day burn in to get the NH down to zero. Did the cycle with live dry Fiji rock and CaribSea live sand and stuck in a coral skeleton with freshwater algae growth for a starter food source. Added a 1-1/2 inch Maroon Clown on day 35 it's loving it but on day 38 I noticed this green-brown-yellow growth hugging the rock and sand. I'm hoping it's Coraline algae. Can anyone identify it? Thanks fellow reefers. I hope the photo uploaded, it won't show on the post preview.
