Hi all 😁

Thought I'd start a thread to share the progress of my nsw IM fusion 20 reef tank.

I've recently upgraded from a aqua one nanoreef 35 that had been running for 3+yrs. This is my progress so far :

 

Equipment:

  • Stock return pump (will be upgraded in the future but working well for now)
  • Jebao sw-2 wave maker
  • eheim 150watt heater
  • Two im 18w skkyelights
  • 1 Asta full spectrum nano light
  • 20lb caribsea live sand

 

Live stock:

  • Two ocellaris tank bred clown fish.
  • One red fire fish.

 

Corals:

  • Mettalic green star polyps
  • Assorted zoas
  • Pink hystrix/birdsnest
  • Yellow bottle brush acapora
  • Orange plating montipora
  • Yellow and green montipora hirsuta
  • blue discosoma
  • Green striped discsosoma
  • Red rainbow acan
  • Blood eyed favia

 

 

Cuc:

  • one blue black legged hermit crab
  • One true peppermint shrimp
  • Various snails

Very nice little set up. That cabinet has a cool modern look to it. 

 

Do you plan on any lighting upgrades?

Yes I plan to replace them with either a ai prime or hydra or with a radion in near future.

Picked up two AI primes today, still trying to figure out which is the best file from AI prime/hydra fb group to use 😁👍💙

Your tank looks terrific!  Any chance you could take another picture further back from the tank showing it and the stand together?  It looks like it's a terrific size with plenty of storage.  Do you know who the manufacturer of the stand is?

Thank you 😁

The stand is IKEA besta units with glass top to help protect against salt water and it also has a middle weight support underneath.
