My Nuvo 10 build!

Recommended Posts

Hunter Lang

Not sure how this whole journal thing works but thought I would keep this journal for me (and others to keep up with) 

 

I am on day 32 of my tank build.

 

my equipment 

-Kessil A80 Tuna Blue

-stock return pump (soon replacing with sicce 0.5)

-heater (Petco brand not sure exact one)

Not sure if I should get a nano protein skimmer?? My LFS said it’s probably not necessary but I’m gonna do more research

 

my live stock has built up quite a bit and here’s what it’s loaded with 

-2 occe clowns

-2 hermits

-1 conch 

-2 snails

-1 pink torch coral branching 3 heads

-candy cane colony (15 heads)

- green hammer coral branching 1 head

-2 orange/gray acan

-3 ricordea 

-1 gsp

-1 two head red mushroom

- 1 cabbage coral 

-1 zoa 6 heads ( eagle eye)

-1 Kenya tree

Plan on getting some frogspawn, more zoas and torches. Also want one more small fish but not sure if I will have enough room

 

Since I’m already a month late on posting this I’m going to post from the day water was put in my tank to my pics I took tonight

 

Note I have been very indecisive and have changed my aquascape, arrangement of corals, and my actual live rocks a lot in just this month 😂 

 

hope you guys will enjoy following along!! 

Many input is appreciated greatly!
