Treedog5's Nuvo 16 Build - (Goby Town) -

Recommended Posts

So I finally decided to go ahead and put my build thread up here, the only reason I didn't do it from the beginning was because I felt like my tank really didn't compare to a lot of the tanks I see posted up here. Number one reason for that is because I am on a very strict budget and we all know budget and saltwater tanks shouldn't be in the same sentence. Regardless of that I ended up with a Nuvo 16 gallon tank and one stock light, and my journey began. Before the Nuvo I had a 29 gallon tank going that I had started back in March of 2013, it was a mess. So when I came across the Nuvo I jumped on it and used some of the rock and water out of the 29 gallon to start up with. So my tank right now is being run by pretty much all the stock equipment that comes with the Nuvo except the lights, which some might say really isn't a upgrade but they are doing fine for me right now. Here is a list of equipment, future plans and livestock that I currently have.

Didn't like the rock scape so I changed it up a bit.

Looks great, definitely like the final choice of aquascaping compared to the first one! Beautiful coral also. I wish i could have ordered the white nuvo but black was only available at the time i ordered mine :unsure: Looking forward to see how the tank progresses!
