Did I remember everything?
Oh yeah, it's been running around 8 months but I bought it used (up and running for about a year when I got it).
Hi Nikki! The coralline grows really fast - the turbelle in that pic has been in the tank around 3 months and it's covered in coralline. Thanks!
Thanks, Josh, Katchupoy!
Most of the corals were mine from before I bought this tank, btw.
It had been running barebottom when I got it and I didn't want it to cycle, so kept it bb. Dumb luck on my part. I've never had it better.
