Counter-Top NANO REEF Build - Pics & Progress

Recommended Posts

Oceanbox Designs

New build in progress from last night! Our 2g counter top reef is getting a tank-lift! Sleek and clean is a must due to the small spacing and we wanted this to be an easy to maintain Nano system. New updates will be added to the thread below so make sure you always check the latest post for updates or you can also follow our instagram @OceanboxDesigns

 

Our New Counter Top tank!

New tank is up and clearing up...Best thing was I didn't have to cycle this tank since everything was transferred from the 2g.

Now comes the fun part! Scaping and stocking!

It's a nice feeling when replacing a tank someone else built with a tank you built! Looks great @Oceanbox Designs!

I only know "OBD" in the context of "OBD reader", On-Board Diagnostics. For the 4 wheeled gas moving machines.

Thanks @Christopher Marks You've read my mind exactly! I'm quite happy to get this tank up and it was quick for me since I already have one built and all the equipment from the old tank. It's going to be an awesome pico build!

It was a clickbate! :lol: JK but honestly I had no idea but then a lot of the same abbreviation could means a lot of other things as well, just depends on context.

2nd day of our new Counter Top Reef!

 

✔️ Crystal HD clarity.

✔️ All sides cleaned (thanks to our new magnet scrubber).

✔️ EXCITED for new stocking!!:happy::D

 

How would you stock this tank (CUC, corals, fishes)??

 

Oh yeah don't mind the pile of rocks, that will be for another day!

Thanks man! I'm shooting for an absolute minimalist on this one. Actually this is not the same tank we shown at Brew Fest. I will be making an announcement soon once we've got all the details down.

Testing out my newly designed magnetic scrubber for acrylic! Right side cleaned, left side still dirty with some organic film. So far so good!

I've never had an acrylic tank, but I saw this on Facebook and I'm waiting to see how this turns out.  Sure looks snazzy.

Thanks! It does have a sleek and clean profile which I'm extremely OCD with on all of my products.
