pfcjackson0716's nuvo 10

Recommended Posts

Currently on vacation, but can't wait to tear open the boxes waiting for me at home. So far I've got:

  • nuvo 10
  • aps stand
  • spinstream
  • ghost skimmer
  • hydrofil ato container, pump, controller, and return bracket
  • im glass cleaner
  • mightyjet 326 gph
  • wavelink 1500 gph
  • customcaddy
  • neotherm 50w
  • reefrack 102
  • nanobox mini tide m plus

I couldn't splurge on a controller, but will in the future. Plan is for a bb with just the frag rack, starting off with the couple softies and lps I have already in my 12x12 cube, and of course a new home for my pair of ocellaris clowns. Might eventually delve into sps, hence why I got the light I did, and the skimmer and the wavemaker. Currently not sure where to put the ato bracket and heater, as it's going to be a bit cluttered. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Pics to come Wednesday, hopefully!

Finally got around to taking some pics. Sadly, the ato didn’t fit in the tiny stand, but it looks pretty slick still. I cancelled the nanobox and am waiting for a Kessil a80, mount, and controller. Don’t ask why; I know the box is better, but I saw a setup similar to mine and just thought that giant puck looked sick over the 10. Also, I only kept about half the rock, and sold the few frags I had. Once again, maybe a silly decision, but I wanted to start fresh with this setup for whatever reason. Pics as promised.

Also, I’ve got a new in box cobalt mj900, and a new without box reefrack 102 and spin stream if anybody wants to steal them off me.

Looks awesome man. Looking forward to seeing what comes out of this build. I like clean simple set ups. My OCD is flaring up though because the stand isn’t lined up evenly with the tile though....

Marimedepot won’t return the skimmer even though it’s loud as hell, so I said screw it and tossed it back in, and even added the spinstream again. I figure if it’s gonna be loud, why not make it really loud. Once Dakoda pointed out the tile, I had to move it. In the process I threw a level on the it and noticed it wasn’t perfect. 10min later and we’ve got this:

Go Team OCD! 🙏

 

@Dakoda 😄 

 

That's too bad the skimmer is noisy. Have you searched for any tips on quieting it down? Sometimes there are little tricks.

Haha!!!! Looks much better now that it’s even in the tile:) 

 

I would hope the skimmer quiets down a bit after break it? I don’t know about that one. I have a nuvo 30L and I run the Aquamax WS-1 and it’s fairly quiet. Of course that’s the only skimmer I have ever owned. So I am not too sure I know the difference between a loud or quiet skimmer lol. 

 

Looking forward to to see this thing get full of livestock!

I took the pump apart and reassembled but it’s still pretty noisy. Not nearly as much so as the spinstream tho, and that thing has grown on me; something about having as much same brand gadgetry as possible in the tank makes me happy. I wish I could have done the bare bottom and reefrack as originally planned, but I just can’t bear the look of glass. I just hope the fish appreciate how much I spent on their new home lol

Haven’t updated in a while but the gsp is really spreading. Just in time to move. I’m thinking about upgrading to the sr80 for the next place.

Everything looks great.  How do you like the mightyjet?  How far is it turned up?

Works fine, I think. I’ve had it set on 1 since any higher and the water seems to fly through the back chambers and I end up with a sandstorm. The wave maker is also on the lowest setting. If I set this tank up again in the new place it’ll be bare bottom with the reef rack for sure so I can really crank both up.
