2.5g simple glass box
aquaclear 30
tiny little heater
Marineland LED

i've got a saltwater mixing station already for larger tanks so i just keep changing water in it. seems to be kicking along just fine.

only thing i don't like is the lighting. too white for my taste and the zoas aren't green under those lights. thinking about going with some led strips and get more blue into the lighting.

and that mean @#[email protected]# clown you see? yeah the tank is too small but he's a killing machine and had to be taking from other tanks. he's in solitary confinement. can't give that sucker away.

Cool tank. I just set up a 2.5 gallon tank also, nano tanks are loads of fun.
You could do your own DIY LED light for fairly cheap, that way you can get the color that you want.

Frequent water changes is the way to go with these little tank, keeps things happy and stable.
