View Full Version : 3 Gal Pico

Here is my 3 gal pico, I just bought the Ecopico Arm from Modular.ca

I really like this fixture for this tank, it replaces the PC fixture I use to have on the tank.

In the tank is the following:

1 porcelain crab
1 pom pom crab
1 ring cowrie
2 florida ricordeas
3 zoa frags
1 paly frag
1 pulsing xenia frag
1 rock of yellow polyps

I use a 7.5 watt hydor mini heater pad
Aqua Clear Mini for filteration

Once a week I feed the tank frozen cyclopeeze, I also put in 1 drop twice a week of seachem reef iodide. Water changes are done every 2 weeks.

I do feed the crabs a couple pellets throughout the wee as well.

No fish are in this tank, tried it in the past and it really does not go well. I also had a cleaner shrimp that outgrew the tank and went to a new home. He was more of a pest in a tank this size than anything else. So no shrimp in the tank.

Tank has been going since Dec 2011

Pictures can be viewed at Modular.ca here on the forums

Why don't you try some sexy shrimp? They won't outgrow that tank.

Oops my bad, yes I did mean modularled, sorry about that.

I have had sexy shrimp before, they are very cute and very entertaining. Only problem is if they don't get enough food they love to nibble on the zoas. I am quite happy with the critters that are in the tank, I do see the porcelain crab out the odd time and the pom pom although very small he is out and about too.
