    Default Tony's 25g Solona

    Got this set up about a month ago, previous owner had it set up for about 2-3 months and bought it brand new.

    It is an ecoxotic set up, a smaller version of the Solona. 18"x18"x18" which comes out to about 25g. Did not come with a light, had my 24" wavepoint fixture over it for a week until it went out and i replace it with a 150w viper k2 mh with a 14000k bulb. Saving up for LEDs. Everything else is stock in the tank including skimmer and return pump. Running chemipure and purigen in the back.

    There is a purple firefish and an ORA mandarin, hasn't been eating but hes still alive, barely. There is also a cleaner shrimp, planning on getting a pair of percs in there to host the Rose BTA i got from Wayne.

    Mostly zoas/palys in there with the exception of the hammer, a ric, birdsnest, and gsp.

    Here are some pics...

    Being an ORA, he is "supposed" to eat frozen. Have you supplemented with any pods?

    Right... the previous owner said she got him from DNA so I was a bit weary. She said he loves freeze dried cyclop-eze? He haven't touch a thing; I've tried all sorts, gonna go pick up ome Tigger pods from Dane this weekend to see. I've tried to catch him but he's fast and there's too many caves and holes.

    Ok I just can't take it anymore. AFTER I do my planted tank I am going back to a salty. Gonna be looking for a Nano setup this time instead of the large tank. Very nice pictures and setup! Thank you for pushing me over the edge. I miss my salty.
