1000 POST!!!!
Here are some recent pics of my 30 gallon tank. has been set up now since Jan 1st so a little over a month. Equipment 250 watt metal halide and 2 65 watt actinitc bulbs. No skimmer, No filter, No refugium, Just good old live rock and water changes. Figured I wouldnt need any of those things until I run into problems. I preform 20% water cahnges weekly and 30% last week of the month to keep everything good. Havent had any problems as of yet. Pics were taken about a week ago and since then there is absouletly no cyno bacteria in the tank!!! shoulda taken new shots today but oh well
In the tank just a coral beauty and a green clown goby (which I never see doing anything but laying around I dont want the guy. I sometimes see him at night with the moonlights on moving around. NORMAL?)
Corals
Trumpet Coral
Xenia
Frospawn
Various Rics
Purple Mushroom
Zoos
Inverts
Pink Tip Anemone ( I know I got it early)
Pink Dwarf feather duster
1 margarita snail
10 cerith snails
10 nassarius snails
5 astera conehead snails
5 turbo snails
1 sexy shrimp (which I havent seen since i got it. It was only like 1/4 of an inch maybe even smaller I was mad when I got it!)
Ill just post new pics on the forum also for now on so I want have to start new ones.

That start of the forum is old I worte it last week and just never posted. My g/f orderdd me one of those Rena Smartfilters to run on my tank so for some kind of filteration so I will be using a filter now. The HOB was on in the pics so i could suck up the cyno!
And I am posting the Xenia last cuz I have some questions.. Cuz since ive had it, it hasnt really looked to good, but it look pretty good in the lfs... I was wondering where I should place it? And what to do to help it get better? Since the pics ive moved it up higher in the tank with a lil more lfow and doesnt look any better...

I know I want be getting anythng else til next month for the tank... The only other fish that will go in the tank will be 2 black and white clownfish and just more coral!
ALSO EVERYTHING IN THIS TANK CAME FROM MY ESTAB 55 GALLON THAT WAS SET UP FOR OVER A YEAR ALL. WELL ALL THE WATER AND ROCKS CAME OUT THAT TANK ALL I GOT NEW WAS SAND. THATS WHY I DIDNT WAIT THAT LONG TO START STOCKING. ACTUALLY EVERYTHING WAS ADDED 2-3 WEEKS AGO FIRST MONTH I STILL LET IT SIT EVEN THOUGH IT DIDNT GO THORUGH A CYCLE
