The clam doesn't look happy in that picture and 99% of people would say they have no chance of survival under the stock lighting. Plus you have a fish (Flame Angel) that is notorious for picking on clam mantles.

Other than that looks o.k.

Nano352's nano reef

Does anyone have any ideas about the HYdro Korolina pumps? Are they that good or is there a better choice of pumps.

Because your tank sucks....

just kidding

I have a 24g nanocube and at one time had a similar stock list (Neon goby, Clown, Flame Angel & YWG). Loved the Flame but it died for some unknown reason after a month. Never had a clown goby, their reputation for laying eggs on SPS corals was enough to make me rethink them.

Nice looking monti cap, I have a purple one and a green with blue polyp one, nice corals that grow very fast.

What are your future plans for this tank? More SPS?

That tanks looks good, but probably not for too long unless your a violent water changer.

You have a tad too much livestock especially the tang, the hippo should be fine in there until 3 or 4 inches when he will need to be upgraded also herbivores are very messy they eat and poop a lot ( due to the low nutritional levels in algae) That will add a lot of nutrients to the tank. The clown goby is fine, the clownfish or the flame should go too if you want to keep the SPS healthly, from that I say you have a nice tank, but it is overstocked with fish. Also keep on eye on that umbrella mushroom they shrimp and other inverts. They will lay out and wait once the invert walks over the tissue the mushroom will close up fast and look like a ball, but inside its stinging tissue is killing the invert and swallowing it in its mouth. My umbrella tried to eat my cleaner and still does, but my cleaner is smart and takes three steps on it and backs off and when the mushroom is in a ball shape the shrimp eats the food laying under it, I don't know if your shrimp will adapt like mine.

Tank looks very good, especially with the new light. I'll be upgrading my 14g biocube lighting soon to HQI.

Hopefully you have plan soon for the Blue Hippo tang as he will need a bigger tank very soon.

Good job!
