Innovative Marine 4g Pico

I just got an amazing deal on this tank. 1/3 of retail cost. It is brand new, in the box. Anyways, I am thinking of setting this up as a small LPS tank. I have many years of experience in the hobby with just over one year with corals.

I was wondering if anybody has experience with this tank that can offer any suggestions or tips.

I have "kept" a 2 gallon pico before. I think the challenges with a tank that small are flow, what surface disruption, and top-off. It can be tempting to push the limits with a tank that small but they can certainly make great displays with some attention detail.

From the looks of your signature it seems like you already maintain a few tanks, so you are familiar with some of the unique challenges of maintaining smaller systems. Just keep in mind those challenges will be magnified proportionately in the pico set-up.

Good luck and keep us updated ๐Ÿ™‚

I recommend getting a little cheap temp probe just to keep an eye on fluctuations.. And a heater controller would be a great investment. picos also require daily top off in most cases to keep salinity solid. Like zoomer said with some special care picos are awesome.

To make your life a little easier, I would figure out an auto top off system for it especially if you are going to keep corals. There are a lot of DIY options out there even for a small tank.

That is amazing that your clown has taken host in GSP. I have never seen that before!
