Upgraded to this tank from my first reef in a  17g Aqua Japan Feb 2018. My old tank was running for a little over a year and I quickly realized I wanted something a little bigger and better build quality. I love the long shallow look of the Nuvo 30l. The upgrade went surprisingly smooth as I was able to set the tanks up side by side and just swapped over every thing but the sand in just a few hours. Most of the corals I’ve grown from small frags which I’m pretty proud of. Looking forward to some of them having more room to grow out now.

Looking good. There are not that many 30L members on here. But there are plenty IM AIO owners. Have fun.

welcome to the 30L club. full disclosure, mine's not wet yet but I still consider myself part of da club. 🤓


@micoastreefing is right, he is / was like the only active one. I'm not really here anymore, kinda migrated to another forum, oops... but at least three new 30L's have popped up recently so that's exciting!

Been awhile since I updated. This tank is starting to mature nicely and is starting to grow in nicely. Haven’t really changed much as far as equipment and keeping up with water changes and my nutrient export has been keeping things stable. I actually have to feed a ton to get my nutrient levels up. The growth of my sps and my clam has been crazy. Took some pics as my tank was going going to bed for the night and used an orange filter and things really pop! Love my 30L
