My Nano Reef Tank
My tank is 13.5 gallons featuring a large arch where I am growing green star polyps as my main coral with some purple mushrooms and three varieties of ricordia mushrooms on separate rocks. I have a Black Storm clownfish, a Helmeted Picasso clownfish, two cleaner shrimp, and several cleanup crew members (snails/crabs).
