IM NANO FUSION 10 New Build!

Recommended Posts

R0DD

Hey all got the itch again and wanted to build a nano so that it was easier to move being that I'm military and move every few years. Came across this NUVO 10g at my lfs and I am pretty impressed! I asked the lfs to hook me up with some water/rock/sand from his seasoned tank to jump start my cycle and everything is running so far. Had the tank up and running in minutes! I just ordered the Intank media basket as well.

Great tank! I have to 10 and 20 gallon fusion love both of them. I am using the cobalt neo therm heaters in both my tanks. Using the 50w for the 10 gallon.

should i upgrade the pump with a MJ1200 for better flow? would it be too much? Ive heard that the new media basket Im getting might have a hard time with a stronger pump.

:welcome: Nice tank! I've got one cycling right now too. Feel free the check out my thread and compare notes.

 

You should be OK with the inTank. It's the upgraded IM media basket people have had trouble with.

 

I've thought about upgrading the pump, but instead i just removed the little flow director. Turns out that thing really constricts the flow of the pump. Also make sure it's set on full power - it can be hard to tell which setting is which just by looking at it.

Thanks a bunch teeny, will try it out. I don't know if the flow is adequate enough yet as I have nothing in it lol but will try your suggestions for sure!

It's hard to say what you can get for it. Check realistic comparable prices on Ebay or Amazon, then list it here on NR and see what happens.

How do you like the IM light that comes with the tank? Can you just run the blues at night?
