take a filter bag and cut it to size to hang over the pour-over vents between the 2nd n 3rd chambers? I'd probably go with a fairly big filter bag (as in big holes) so it wont' clog up  easily and choke flow.

how are you attaching the bag to the baffle? I want to add something like this to stop micro bubbles from skimmer chamber

I don't have all the answers...just winging it in the hopes that an idea can turn into the foundation of a solution.

 

why not talk to inTank to see if they can make you a basket to fit the 2nd chamber just for your refugium?  🙂

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.

Im new on here but I started a journal for my Nuvo 40 if you want to add me to the index!

Just got a Nuvo 38. I will be putting together a build thread soon. I hope it doesn't crack and leak. I bought it from the original owner who was running it for 5 years straight so I would like to think that if it was going to fail, it would have failed by now. Fingers crossed.

Ended up not going with the 38. Grabbed a Nuvo 30L instead.

I am using 2 Kessil A350. If I could do it again I would have spent the extra cash on the A360 instead.

I just picked up my Fusion 20. Can anyone recommend a budget pendant light? The plan is to have a couple clowns, bubble tip , and maybe zoas. I'm trying to keep it easy.

I would venture to say that neither of those are 'budget'. lower priced than a lot of other alternatives yes...but not budget.

 

for budget, you'd want to go with some ABI Tuna Blue: https://www.amazon.com/ABI-Coral-Optimized-Spectrum-11-Band/dp/B073V5V5JP

 

or for a bit more, but additional color spectrum, the Coral Compulsion: https://coralcompulsion.myshopify.com/collections/14w-par30/products/14w-par30-led-22k-superblu-reef-light

Thanks! Did I mention I was married and would like to stay that way? LOL!! 

Should I get 1 or 2? The tank is 24" long.

Wouldn't you need two of those plus two fixtures? I don't really see the cost being that much cheaper than a second hand AI Prime.

you would want to get 2 of them. also, while the Coral Compulsion are more, you do get the option of changing the lens angle, so you can tweak them for better spread.

depending on what he buys, they're not that much...nor are the clamping gooseneck stands (or go cheaper DIY with something that's custom and hanging). granted, my mind is always thinking in CAD funds, so the AI Prime's and Kessill A80's are still expensive when used.

 

also chansman, depending on your goals, take a look at the options from Current USA. you can buy their LOOP system which gives you a bar light, wavemakers and pumps with a controller that manages ALL of them. and the prices aren't bad either! WV Reefer has the Current USA system on her 12 gallon long and dirty and has nothing bug good things to say about it. :)

So...I leaked tested the tank yesterday and all is well. The stock pump is pretty weak for sure. Should I replace it first or add a Jebao OW-10?
