I thought I would post some pictures of my 12 gallon tank. This tank has been setup for about 2 years now. The pictures are not great, but here you go.

The stock pump has been upgraded to a maxijet 1200, and there is one little pump, I'm not sure what size or make, but it is really a small one in the tank as well. I think the upgrade to the Maxijet was the best thing I did to the tank.

Completely stock lights and not tons of water changes. I try to change about 1/2 gallon a week, but I do forget about it to often to be honest. I also try to use kalk for some of the replacment water to help with Ca, Alk for the clam and the few SPS corals in the tank.

Basicly it is a very low maintenance tank for me, and I love it that way.

The thing about light is the closer to the light the more intensity to get. If you notice the acro and clam are both very close to the top of the water. Currently the top of the mantle of the clam is only about 2.5 inches away from the light bulbs. Even though the bulbs are only shoot I can't remember 18 or 24 watts each, it is close enough to get enough light intensity to grow. Same with the acro.

How often do you change the bulbs?

I change them about every 12 to 16 months.

I got the tank used, replaced both bulbs around 3 months after I got it, and then I changed both bulbs again about 4 months ago or so. I noticed that my acro was losing color.

are those nuclear greens in the bottom-right side?

I don't know to be honest. I have had them for years since before people started naming most corals.

They are a bright green paly.
