Our nano-reef tank

Our small reef tank is 30 months old and seems to be maturing into a beautiful little ecosystem. Keeping the water parameters optimum is actually quite a time-consuming process, requiring protein skimming, biological filtration, phosphate scrubbing and weekly water changes, but the end result is very satisfying. I think my favourites are the Xenias: these are the pulsing, flower-like polyps that actively trap small items of food.
