Tim's IM Fusion 10

Recommended Posts

timinaz

This is my third Nano/Pico system. the first is a JBJ 20 Rimless frag tank that I moved stuff from a much neglected 10 gallon bow front in February, the second is a JBJ Pico that I started 6 years ago but never got around to filling until I set up the JBJ. poking around the IM thread here I liked what I saw so I got a used IM Fusion.

On to the build...

 

My system is as follows:
Tank: IM Fusion 10
Stand: Office desk until I find or make one
Media: None while cycling, I will be getting an InTank media basket

Heater: None (I live in Tucson, AZ)
ATO: Ordering a Tunze Osmolator Nano 3152

Lighting: AI Prime

Flow: Hydor Koralia Nano circulation pump

Skimmer: Ordering an IM AUQA Gadget Ghost

 

I will be posting crappy cell phone pics soon.

I can't wait for said "crappy cell phone pics"! I'm looking at this tank myself for my upgrade from a 5gal.

I love my IM fusion 10. Only complaint is the media basket. Seems to be a nitrate factory for me.

I took it out and stuffed phosphate filter pad and nitrate pad and floss in the chamber. Other than that no complaints.

Tunze Osmolator is a good investment. So glad I got one.

The stock media basket sucks! InTank media basket would solve that. I love mine.

Over 10 oz of water has evaporated overnight! I just popped for a Tunze Osmolator Nano 3152. It's not like my office is dry I have a poison dart frog, Chameleon and a Pac man frog setup in here!

I thought I could go without an ATO when I first started the build but found myself topping off the tank every 2 days. The Tunze 3152 works great.

Your setup is very similar to mine. Looking forward to seeing the progress!

Looking good. I'm very tempted to put an AI Prime on my nuvo 8.

My tank cooked due to the heater going haywire... I sold the IM Fusion and got a 34 gallon DSA cube...

 

 

More to come as I rebuild!
