New fusion 10 build updates!

Recommended Posts

TheCrockers200

Hi everyone! I am going to be starting an official journal for our new fusion 10 build     Quick background on us, we had a 75 gallon for about 4 years, bought a house and when the tank moved we lost almost everything over about 6 months and realized with the new house we didn’t have the time. Now that we’ve settled we have decided to try a nano tank and hope to re set up our 75 in the future. 

 

We started the tank cycling the end the end of December 2017. Cycle is complete and water parameters are good. Had a short stage of cyanoalgae but rearranged the rocks and added a powerhead for more flow and have not had any issues since. 

 

What we have as of now:

im fusion 10 tank

upgraded media basket caddy with filter floss and chemipure nano

ghostmate desktop skimmer

hydor nano powerhead

4 pounds of live rock with 1 large dry rock that has since been seeded 

7lbs of Carib sea bahama oolite sand

AI prime hydra light with flex arm mount

 

LIVESTOCK

1 firefish

4 nasarius snails

2 turbo snails 

 

 

looking to add a black clown goby and a citron goby  and some more cleanup crew

 

We had a massive bloom of copepods which have since dwindled to a smaller amount. One morning I came out and the entire tank was full of them ?

 

 

Will be slowly adding corals to the tank as well. We currently have one little favia frag that was pretty cheap and basically our test piece to see how it does. Thinking of doing mostly lps corals, but not really sure exactly at this point. 

 

We are looking into auto top off systems please give your recommendations! 

 

Also what other parameters should we be testing testing regularly besides ph, sg, ammonia, nitrate, nitrite? 

 

Thank you!!
