    as I am working on my fish room, I have a small 16 gallon Coralife bio cube with the LED lights. I just want to have it in the fish room for some ambiance and some thing to look at. I was hoping to do something cool or unique, but realize it is pretty small.

    Would this be suitable for a bubble tip and some clowns? Are they pretty hardy, I have never had one?

    Open for ideas and feedback. I would prefer if Reefking would not comment. I am hoping he just keeps his head up his a#$#&

    Add ice to that box, and make it a coke/beer cooler!

    Some of us call Reefking The Plague. Once he comments on a thread, it dies. He is like herpes, just can’t shake him.

    Would like some bubble tip thoughts or other ideas.

    Bubble tips are pretty Hardy in my experience. So long as the tank can keep basic corals alive, an anemone will be fine, and a BTA tank can look pretty stunning.

    Here is a top down of my IM10 that's mostly for my nems IMG_0052.jpg

    I like that. What is your maintenance schedule?

    50-100% water change every week-2.

    Its a small tank, and its very easy to do the waterchanges. so long as the salinity and temp are the same, you dont do any harm to the nems, and i just toss the filter pad when it gets clogged every ~4 days
