NanoBox Red Sea 170 : New Video 1/30/19

Recommended Posts

It has been a wild ride with many different AIO tanks, no filter tanks, etc. I have had a Red Sea 170 in my spare room sitting there for eight months and finally decided it was time. I am extremely excited to be back with an actual sump, normal skimmers and just easy reef keeping.

 

I will be updating this tank weekly to show results.

 

  • NanoBox Duo
  • NYOS 120
  • IM Nuvo Pump :P
  • Nero 5 X2
  • Tune 6020 ( In Sump )

Super simple and back to the basics. I pick up corals that I enjoy and really looking forward to this tank maturing.

 

 Enjoy in 4K. 

 

Photos/light graphs to come but for now here is a video.

 

Enjoy!

Thanks. I will get a few stills to show how it looks. I enjoy it!

Tell me about it. I needed to keep a few of the AIO set up for a certain amount of time.

Took ya long enough. :lol:

Der! Now I know the trendy stuff. ;)

Sub'd = Subscribed lol

 

Only a couple in the video. The tank has a ton of favia's right now. I few that are flat out mind boggling!

Someone likes Acans!

 

I put this in the same chamber as the skimmer. This allows for it to stir up anything down there and make the skimmer collect for junk. I also move it around once a month. You will be amazed how well it works.

I'm new with sumps....why the Tunze in sump?

Looks great Dave! I feel you on the AIO thing. It's really nice to have a sump. I'm picking up some live Pukani from Tampa Bay Saltwater at the airport tomorrow morning for my Reefer Nano.

Looking forward to it. It'll be refreshing to see a cool Favia tank. The patterns on some are seriously surreal.

When you do get a FTS up, be sure to include that beautiful NB Wide Quad fixture in the shot too!

Thanks and enjoy yours. I really have to give it to Red Sea on the setup for plumbing. While I feel 100% with plumbing most people are not. However they are so easy it is almost comical!

Nice Dave!

The video have the FTS. I am actually being a punk and using an old Quad housing and not a wide. I recently had a few orders coming in so I needed to use what I had. :D

Looking at getting the same tank. Do I need a quad ? Can a Duo be ok on this tank? Thanks

Thank you and I totally agree. Seems that SPS and mushrooms are the trend. Meanwhile I will grab all the favia's I can.

Favias are my favorite. I'm excited to see this thing evolve into a nice reef.

 

2 - Chocolate Clownfish

1 - Wyoming White Clownfish

1 - Geometric Pygmy Hawkfish

1 - Yasha/Pistal Pair

2 - Paired Bangaii Cardinals

1 - Sixline Wrasse

1 - Tailspot Blenny

1 - Royal Gramma

What type of fish are you keeping? Looks nice...

 

No. This is one I had in the shop I needed to use. The Duo can do it.

Nice! Digging the upgrade.

 

Do you still have the other reef tank? I'm wondering where that big ol' maxima is. :D

I had fun last night shooting stills and video. I am really enjoying this tank more and more each day. The NYOS skimmer is really starting to pull out nasty skimmate. Joey from Joe Knows Reef sent a small care package of a couple corals.

  • Red Zoas
  • Setosa - One of my all time favorites
  • Short Polyp Pink Goni
  • Rainbow Chalice

Enjoy the photos!

Looking good, Dave! I just put a powerhead in my sump for the same reason. I love your coral selections too, a lot of classics in there :)
