    Video of the rarest aquariums you'll find in some dudes living room!

    If you'll take time to watch the video of these still pics I can promise two things. 1. you haven't seen these before anywhere and 2. they will highlight what is possible in true bare bones aquarium husbandry where no filters are used, no skimmers for the reefs, yet they run at the palmtop level just the same as giant tanks with all the bells and whistles. There's no golden secret to these, just ten years of patience. I don't do anything special other than regular water changes and the addition of ion supports, calcium and alk, nothing else is dosed.

    enjoy!

    tiny fish in the .5 gallon reef. He was only in here for two months to test the nitrate clearances of the mini refugium inside, which worked well. This panda goby was so pinpoint small that he loved this tank and perched all over looking for pods to catch. he ate cyclopeeze regularly.

    posted two hours ago

    I think having to post through the moderators when they aren't active and you've already passed 9 kinds of bot prevention is too redundant and it is preventing basic communication...too bad I like you guys' forum! Well I sent the link via post but the machine has picked it up and said it has to be mod approved, that was over two hours ago so at this rate a basic discussion would take all day. Feel free to delete this thread if you want, I'm out eh

    b

    i guess you can manually search for it on you tube under "globe ecosystems" take the first vid

    Hi Brandon,

    I approved your posting - sorry for the delay most of the mods have day jobs and the response isn't always instant for these things. Reporting it sent me an e-mail, but please use that option sparingly.

    Once you've posted a few times, the requirement for approval will go away.

    Regards,
    Krugar.
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    those are crazy small, there was guy on here from the states last year that had a tiny tank going too ( i'm looking for it ). i would think it's almost impossible to do for a long period of time without running into problems, though large water changes would be easy enough.

    thanks for the pics and link :b15:


    PS: it's only post with links in them that are put in to be approved, it has to be done to prevent spam, sorry for the hassle.

    I still think that tank with the ruler was just shot with a shrink gun from rick moranis. These are pretty awesome pictures. I can't say I've seen anything like it before. I bet these tanks are much easier to move when you sell the house
