Filtration:
- UV sterilizer
- catalytic protein skimmer
- sump of live rocks layered w/ crushed coral rubble at the bottom
- siyempre, a basket of micro fiber for the 1st stage of filtration ( I remove it when I feed the corals to feed the live rocks sa sump).

- A foot and a half tall mangrove

Nag one year na ang "reef pod" ko last June 2009. Di pa ako nag add ng livestock since October last year. Kumalat na ng husto ang Pulsing Xenas ko all over the pod na nakuha ko lang na naka attach sa sea grass sa reef near by.

Pareng Obet, I guess the constant strong wind helps cool the water since nasa 4th floor veranda kami. malaki ang clearance kaya rin siguro malamig ang water. downside lang ng pond or pod ay fluctuation ng salinity. Very careful ako dito.

A pair of coral banded shrimps. The male lost his long pincher arms for some reason a month ago but grew back again after just 2 weeks. Ok na cya ngayon. Nahuli ko din toh, half ng size nila ngayon. ang lalaki na nila ngayon, a lil' more than 2.5 inches (body only). the male is a bit smaller. Nag release ng larvae yung female before pero wala naman ako nakikita na baby CBS sa rock crevices. Iba feeling mga bro pag top view mo nakikita ang corals and fishes. Very Natural ang effect, that's probably why I ended up with this set-up. Originally I made this pod for live spiny lobsters. Marami din kasi dito sa Palawan.

RRandygie, pvc ang frame nung pod and trapal na pang marine. ginagamit na pang roofing ng mga fishing boats.Dati meron wooden fence and pod pero nag deteriorate na dahil sa weather and saltwater cguro. I'm planning to construct a tougher wooden fence para ma cover ang sides ng pod para mas presentable. Hehehehe
