So I have been out of the hobby for a couple of years now. I tore my old tank down for financial reasons and being sick of battling Halimeda that had taken over my tank. You can see the old thread http://www.nano-reef.com/topic/195030-joels-20-gallons-of-delight/?hl=%2B20+%2Bgallons here. Now I am back with the Innovative Marine Nuvo Micro 30. (can they give a tank longer name?)

Battling halimeda?

Looks good so far. The unwrapping is the best part.

I guess that's what it was from the ID I got. It was growing all in the sand, roots everywhere, in my rock. I pulled it out every week by the handfuls.

Cobalt Neo-ther, 100w. Got a call form Cobalt this morning and they are sending out the bracket replacement today. Wow that's great service! Just called them last night. I am planning on getting the InTank media basket for a filter.

What do you guys think of this scape'? Need to build it up with more rock? It's only about 15 pounds of rock and I have plenty more rock? Should I build the right side up higher for an SPS area?

It's a start. If it were me, I would break out the hammer and chisel/screwdriver and have at her. A little epoxy and/or superglue, and create something! Big balls of rock stacked together kind of look just like that. Be creative! Get some frustrations out on that base rock! :P

Haha ok I was thinking that. Also though about trying to locate a larger piece.

Could you maybe make it thicker at the base and a little taller on the left? Give it a bigger contrast? Nice AI Nano man. I ordered an AI today! :D

I feel like you'll run out of places to put corals on, therefore you should have rocks going up at least 75% of the way on one side? What acrylic tubes are you using? I might need to look into that since I ordered more base rock.

I used fiberglass rods since it is stronger and therefore you can use a smaller diameter. Which means you run less risk of breaking up the rock drilling it.

Looks good so far. I always try and view it from above as I building it so I can see where the corals are going to go as well. Also, some fine sipping tequila helps with creativity. B)

My main goal when aquascaping is to create a seamless structure that naturally flows without drawing ones eye to any one particular space. The key is fitting to rocks in a way that you can't tell where one begins and the other ends, this way you have a structure and not "a pile of rocks" as the forum people say.

Long day yesterday, but I finally got the tank wet. I am pretty happy with how the scape' came out. Opinions? Brutal or otherwise. 20130305_081226_zps23082f93.jpg20130305_081250_zps29a2b591.jpg20130305_081259_zps58046d5c.jpg20130305_081310_zpsa5153945.jpg20130305_081903_zps1cb32a7f.jpg

Looks great! I love the IM tanks and am thinking of upgrading to one. How do you feel about the Nano light over that tank? Looks pretty brite from the pictures. I have the Nano over a 12g now and wondered if i could use it on a nuvo?

I really like it. According to AI this light should cover my tanks footprint. I just have to raise it up a bit to get the edges.
