    I know I said it last time. This time, I'm older and wiser. Spent the last year researching the mystery of gut-loaded baby brine shrimp and I'm ready to make the plunge.

    My pico will be a dwarf seahorse tank: Hippocampus Zosterae!

    I got my tank in today and I can't wait to get it wet! Dwarfs can be killed from an aiptasia sting or even hydroids so my tank will be started from scratch, no live rocks, no live sand and any macro or corals that do go in there will be cleaned and quarantined before they see the inside of my tank. Right now, I've got a 5 gallon bucket of 'dry' sand, 'dry' rock and saltwater becoming "live."

    Go Team Seahorse!

    David, I'm probably not going to be able to finish this competition mostly because I'm doing dwarf ponies. It is going to be almost impossible to get everything up and running because of the timing and the lack of ability to mod the tank. I'm playing along but I guarantee, I'll be breaking rules soon which will disqualify me.
