14G AIO rimless reef

Recommended Posts

It been a while since I have set up a new aquarium, I have missed having a reef tank!

I moved to LA, so I have had to leave behind my old reef tanks.

The goal with this reef tank is to create a mostly automated reef tank with minimal maintenance

Equipment list:

  • Lifeguard 14 gallon rimless AIO (R460000 Large)
  • 2 x Jebao RW-4 powerhead
  • VIPARSPECTRA 165W reef light

    • HYDROFARM Jump Start 2-Feet Hydroponic Grow Light Stand

  • DIY Water Top Off System

    • contact-less water-level sensor

      • More accurate than float switch

      • Less likely to get stuck

    • Ardunio to read signal from sensor

    • Peristaltic Pump to pump water into tank

  • DIY Reef Controller

    • Raspberry PI nano w (Currently, planning on replacing with ESP32 micro-contoller)

    • Relay switch

  • 15 pounds of sliced dry rock called STAX from unique corals

  • Cobalt Neo-Therm Heater

Future livestock:

  • Acropora
  • Zoa
  • Frogspawn

Nice looking tank! Did you find it locally? I have the IM14 which I guess is kind of similar.

I got in LA from Bob’s Tropical Fish. Once I saw the tank, I knew it was the one. It has low iron glass, AIO, and 45 degree angled edges all for 130$. I bought it immediately 😀

That's pretty swanky! And cheaper than the IM although I got mine on sale.

Thanks!

I used the sliced dry rock, which makes aquascaping so much easier. its pretty stable, and gives lots of surface area for coral.

The staxx rock? That's pretty nifty!
