The Innovative Marine Nuvo Index Thread

Recommended Posts

joel sandoman

So when I was doing research into getting my IM Nuvo 30, I had to use the search function to find other tanks and see what people are doing with them. Since I seem to spend so much time on here I thought I would do something like what Stevie T did with the RSM. Actually I was at one point considering the RSM and went through every one of those links until I decided I like the rimless look better. Please feel free to make link suggestions for me to add.

So obviously this is a fairly new line of tanks so there are not a gazillion like the biocube, nanocube, etc. I also did not add tanks that haven't been updated in the last 6 months. Feel free to comment and ask me to add your tank. Also any thread links that have to do with modifications, upgrades etc.

Love this thread! I started my Nuvo16 about a month 1/2 ago, guess i'll need to get some pics together. it is great for ideas, anyone want to suggest a lighting upgrade or supplement for a $200 budget? was originally thinking about just adding a 3rd skylight, but really want something in the 20K range for a little more blue. have looked tirelessly and still haven't found something to grab my attention, actually looked at every listing for LEDs on ebay today...

A par 38 would t be a bad idea or maybe even a kessil a150.

I wonder why the nuvo 4 isn't as popular as the 8. More options with the 8?

I need to get a decent recent shot of mine. Most recent fts that I have was right after a clean and water change, so a few things are looking a bit narked off in it. :)

The last picture of my old tank (crashed recently). The new one is coming on strong.

You could probably remove mine from the list since I accidentally cracked it in half. I should probably update my final stocking list and leave it for posterity though since it was running perfectly.

 

I have a JBJ 30 rimless now which is basically just a bigger version of the same thing..

I just got off the phone with Innovative marine about the skimmer I have from them that has been having issues and they are sending out a few replacement parts to see if we can fix the issue. It was easy to tell them what was going on and they offered to help out no questions asked. They are a good company to do business with.
