New to ARC and hobby

Thanks for the join 👍.

I am running a JBJ 28g Nanocube. Seems to be doing pretty well. Minus the fact I can't figure my moon lights out.

So far I have 3 coral (which seem to be growing slowly), a clown fish, file fish, goby, a very small red and white shrimp, several red leg hermits, and 2 Mexican turbos.

Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated.

Also what is the best way to post pics?

Welcome. Photo bucket is what I use to post pictures.

Advice. Patience is key.

Welcome to the club!

I also use Photobucket to post my pictures as well. It automatically gives you a copy/paste link to put into the post box.

Looking good. Did notice in first picture what may be an aiptasia anemone which is usually considered an undesirable pest. Not to worry - file fish generally eat them.

It is mike. I have been fighting it the past few weeks and seems to be the only one in the tank. I am happy with it so far. This is the second attempt, and been going good for 6 months.

Hi Greg, welcome to ARC.

I'm in Duluth and just getting started as well. My tank has been up and running for 6 months. I'm near PIB & Sugarloaf.

Thank you Bcavalli. I'm sure tons of questions will come about soon. The past month I have really been getting into this.

Well I just had a death. My file fish was life less when I get in this evening. Tested the water and everything tested good. Also noticed one of my corals was not opened up. On a good note I did treat the aiptasia.

Random deaths happen, sad but thats part of this hobby! Be sure to monitor other fish closely to make sure no parasites are on them

The clownfish seems to be doing well. Snails and hermits seem to be fine. Haven't seen the goby or the pistol shrimp. I will look this evening when I get home.
