For sure, If not impossible and I know that going in. It's a challenging hobby in general, sometimes you have to fail to learn stuff and I'm at peace with that. I will post pics of epic failure to come

I never said you'd fail! I do know you probably shouldn't attempt a lot. Maybe a cleaner shrimp or some hermit crabs. OR SOME OPAE ULA!!

Wow just Googled those super shrimp, really cool! Would they just get blown around by the current in there though?

I would turn it down some for them, and more or less based on how they react, but I'd say no. I know they like flow.

Thanks! I'm working on getting close ups of each soon, but I really need to finish 1 and 5 first. The red stuff is just red aquarium sand that I had laying around from my clown puke days.

I don't know if you've been there already, but check out the nano-reef.com forums and website for your pico reef tank! They have tons of info, and you'll learn everything you need to know about it.

Thanks for the tip, I will check that out. Here's an update after reshaping again and showing the anenome settling in, you can see how much better he looks than yesterday.

Really cool idea man. Never would of thought to do this. A cool idea might be to go from left to right and flow tank 1 to tank 2 and so on in design

How big is that salt tank?
This is a Condy?(min 30g)
As long you realize that anemone barely fit in a 10g add one fish and your maintenance will be an everyday business....
