Issues:
(1) Salinity / Specific Gravity: 40 / 1.030 ??? looks to be a bit high?
(2) need to investigate DSR "Dutch Synthetic Reefing" and where to get DSR 100 pack http://dsrreefing.com/supplements/

Fixed / mitigated
-- Temp is getting high even with heater off (added fan with controller)
-- wave maker blowing the sand out of the right corner of the tank (added a bit more rock crumbles on the right, still blowing sand but significantly less)
- no cover, need to make a mesh cover of some description ( Build off Flyscreen and BirdNetting)
- baffles have small holes in them (when filling water, water level on all baffles were filling up and at the same water level) [ after removing duck outflow, it is behaving as expected]
- wood in air driven skimmer will have to be change every so often. (replaced skimmer with S-150)
- Return pump Very noisy - replaced with Jecod/Jebao DCS2000 Return Pump (stock pump only noisy with restricted flow[duck outflow])
- Coral Box S150 protein skimmer has lots of micro bubbles, raised, and a few cables ties improved it.

Other bothering things
AI Prime HD: can't connect to "wpa2-enterprise with peap-mschapv2" wifi. can't assign static ip. can't connect to specific ip/DNS using the app
Cooling fan controller ATC999: only accurate to a degree. turn on/off frequently. better off to have decimal accuracy, and make the fan turn on at 26.5 and off at 26.0 so that the fan does not turn on/off constantly. or better yet to gradually start the fan speed (very low) from 26.1 and increase the fan when the temp goes higher. same as a computer fan

thanks for the advice, there is no splashes on the left side so far (will monitor it however). there are on the right side because of the air driven skimmer.
planning to replace the skimmer and this super noisy return pump, so will need to reassess it afterwards.

so few issues with the Coral Box S150 protein skimmer.
lots of micro bubbles

the concept of rotating the body to adjust the water level is nice, however, rotating it to decrease the water level, means that it is opening a hold at the bottom, which is dumping a lot of micro bubbles in the water column. so better to raise the skimmer and let leave it close completely than leving the skimmer low and opening it.

The problem is the way that the mount and holes for the screws are, it was already at it's highest position. using 2 screws be default. so decided to use only one screw at the bottom and cable tie the top. mounted the skimmer so that the top of the black sponge is just bellow the surface.

HaDFE_bLE_AQnw37zouhPeAYjusDijaX00LyudMJ

2nd problem, the top part was not sitting flush with the bottom part of the skimmer, creating a gap on the mount side, which was letting a lot of micro bubbles out and lowering the water level. another cable tie to the rescue.

EZzJaV2YXoEBPyUkxHowtic6YPeDjJVpQbNy3hOX

reactor and new return pump: 

Jecod/Jebao DCS2000 Return Pump (DC pump) 20W max.
Aaaaaa Silenceeee..... finally...... the loudest thing now is the tumbling noise of the bio pellets LOL, (when the cooling fan is not on)

B7fkJdiLQsAa2DQljD_uejYIUpjGDFr4kttehHbQ

for reference, this is the stock pump. Aqua Zonic Evo 1300l/h 25W
after removing and testing the stock pump, it was NOT making any noise. while playing with it, i realise that if i restrict the flow, it starts to make this awful noise.
so i guest that it was the Duck Outflow that was restricting the flow and causing it to be noisy. if i switch the the round outflow, it would have probably fix the noise with the stock pump.
New pump is giving more flow, not noisy, on the lowest settings. so using less power, and less heat in the tank... can't complain.

Remove the Duck Outflow attachment Baffles are now behaving like it should, i don't think there is a need to block those holes in the baffles anymore.
Moral of the story. do NOT use the Duck Outflow attachment!!!!

OXOjk5g3Otz2Zw8GJeAYs55lOqa0ieyn18IHOayf

Mesh Cover decided to build a cover using flyscreen frame and BirdNetting 
56.0cm X 28.9cm (56 because i have the fan mounted on the left, if there were no fan, it's meant to be bigger) (28.9 because the reactor is sticking out a bit, else could go to 29.5cm so that the frame sits on the baffles, but the problem with this is that the frame can slide back as there will nothing preventing it so slide)

initially thought of using those clear mesh netting, but had to order from the states...
https://aquariumoverload.com/collections/dry-goods

why did i not use the included glass cover? well, i have a cooling fan which will not work with the glass cover, and that also means one more thing to clean, condensation to block light etc....

Tank Finish cycling Today Day 29!!! Yay...  time to add living things....
Cycle was done with dry rock (dead) Real Reef Rock, dry sand , with dr tim's ammonium chloride bottle.

here is the marine cycling graph of the Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate.
Test done using API test kit for those parameters. 
p.s Salifert kit says Nitrate Finish at 5 (instead of 0 for API), but at the start, when Nitrate started to register Day 16/29th Dec, SAL kit was reporting 25!!!, so i did not use it. and no, it was not 2.5 .

all the small peak of ammonia in the graph was when i was adding 1/2 or 1/4 dosage of ammonium chloride.
Suspect the Nitrate decreasing is because of the All-In-One Biopellets in the reactor

SLgZ7FNRXpAFlurnW5bHmKevGSoQ3vzbmckVyc9G

1 drop per Gal to reach 2 ppm Ammonia
suppose to be 96L = 25.36Gal

Dec 13 10:48pm Day 01 Added 25 Drops Ammonium Chloride
Dec 21 09:13am Day 07 Added 10 Drops Ammonium Chloride
Dec 23 10:49pm Day 09 Added 10 Drops Ammonium Chloride
Dec 30 11:51am Day 17 Added 10 Drops Ammonium Chloride
Jan 05 02:00am Day 23 Added 5-6 Drops Ammonium Chloride
Jan 09 05:25pm Day 27 Added 10 Drops Ammonium Chloride
Jan 11 06:16pm Day 29 0 Ammonia, and 0 Nitrite

could probably have added fish/cuc at Dec 27 Day 14 since nitrite is not that toxic in saltwater. but i decided to wait for the full cycle to finish
http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2005-06/rhf/index.php

plenty of small white things on the glass i think those are marine copepods/amphipods ??? they walk and swim around

so hard to take picture of those guys, they are in constant motion.

Hi Corey123,

i could cannot see your tank journal .... maybe create one and post some pictures.

for mine, what i did was to turn on the pump, and will it until a level i was satisfied with. i wanted to have a gentle waterfall to the last baffle. meaning that the level of last baffle would be slightly lower that the one before it. this way, any evaporation will cause a bigger change of water level in the last baffle, where i have my ATO sensor. thereby making the water level change more sensitive for the ATO sensor, thereby giving me more stable water parameters. this also maximise the amount of water in the system.

this is a picture of the few last baffles. if you look at the back of glass, notice the change of tone of the black, the top of the lighter black is where the water sits when the return pump is off.

on another note.....

had a power outage today with an ETA for restoration of UNKNOWN on western power's website..... got to fireup the generator!
would have been a much more stressful time if i did not have a generator handy.

power was out from 12:30 to 3:30ish.... 
was on generator power from 1:00 to 3:30ish... so ran the generator for around 2h30min.

Hi, 

which part? the return pump?

yep,.... this is in the top description.... 

"Stock Aqua Zonic Evo 1300l/h 25W (Very noisy when flow restricted [duck outflow]) (stop using on 21 Dec 2016)"

remove the duck outflow attachment, and it was good after that.

Forgot to mention,

ended up using a Raspberry Pi to monitor the Temperature of the aquarium.
using ds18b20 temperature sensors.(plastic cap version, so that it does not rust )
https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11050

based on HydroPi that i modified a bit to make it do what i want.
https://myhydropi.com/raspberry-pi-pool-monitor-python-code
https://myhydropi.com/raspberry-pi-pool-monitor-website

there is also the ability to add PH, ORP, Dissolved Oxygen, Conductivity etc using Atlas Scientific sensors later on.
https://www.atlas-scientific.com/kits.html

Integrated my Solar inverter's info into the status page. using the Fronius Primo API.

all logged every minute, and stored into MySql database. data can then be graphed.

data also made available via SNMP, so i am also using my PRTG server to log and graph the data.

no relay connected. have not played with the alerts yet. (i can either do it straight from the pi or via PRTG)

pi with all the temp sensors connected

pretty cool that you can actually see when the heater turn on, what temp they turn on, what temp they turn off. 

p.s sump is for my fresh water aquarium..... not for the marine aquarium, hence why the temperature are different.

Still a work in progress.......

added a Lawnmower Blenny (Salarias fasciatus)

mnp3YLOjquSBZeorj8NgLNlYoXfXIxoZv84ObeUx


also notice lots of white spot growing on the glass. there are quite hard to scrape off.
looking into it further , it looks like they are "Spirorbid Worms"

http://www.melevsreef.com/node/360

apparently they are detrimental to the tank.

Hi sparker, thanks. 🙂
----------------------

so went to "coral and fish barn" on Sat 6th May, "just to have a look" . and my wife saw some zoanthid that she liked....

now we have zoanthid in the tank..... not sure what's the name of those.... anyone know, let me know.
and also got 5 X glass/ghost shrimps [slender shrimp?] if anyone know the scientific name of those shrimps are please let me know. can't find any info on those.

still trying to figure out where to put thos zoa, don't want them to spread and overrun the tank. or is that even a concern ?
maybe move all of them on a seperate rock island on the bottom?
if i put them at the back,   i think that there is not enough light there, and they are not opening up. move them to the top, and they open straight away.

p.s all the zoa was from one rock... they rock was just broken, and was holding together by only the zoa skin, decided to seperate them.

oh, added the stock light at the back (only turning on blue channel), to get some blue light on the zoa.... they glow under blue light.

Hi michaelbarfield, thanks, 

 

Dosing Pump

Pump 1: RedSea Foundation A (CA)    

Pump 2: RedSea Foundation B (Alk)    

Pump 3: RedSea Foundation C (Mg) 

Pump 4:  Spare (not used)

Pump 5: RedSea Trace Colors  (A)    

Pump 6: RedSea Trace Colors (B)    

Pump 7: RedSea Trace Colors (C)    

Pump 8: RedSea Trace Colors (D)

 

the dosing schedule is included in the post (how many ml of what is being dosed at what time), but looks like the formatting is off.

 

edited the post to include a screenshot of the schedule instead.

Thanks so much for the reply! I am planning on using the red sea stuff. Just getting my tank restarted. Built a new house with my fiance so tank was taken down. Had used bright well but it has lost most support from lfs.

Also wanted to say you sure have taken your tank very seriously. Making holes in brick walls are a big deal! Most wouldn't go that big on their first salt tank.

yeah, red sea stuff are not the cheapest , but for a nano, it's not too bad, since we do not use that much of it.

the wife would not have liked having all those equipment in the living room 🙂, so kind of no choice there 😉

besides, i already had much bigger holes for the main 300L Fresh water tank next to it. 300L display tank, with a Eshopps PF-1200 Hang on Overflow Box to the 200L Sump in the garage. with all the CO2 reactors/controllers etc in it. (i had the tropical fresh water tank before the marine 96L)

Welcome to the community @SkullKill! 👋

 

Thanks for sharing your nano reef with us, it's a very well thought out system, particularly your external dosing setup! I noticed the cooling fan on the left side of the tank, has it made a measurable impact in dealing with hot summer temperatures?

 

Awesome collection of corals and inverts so far, it's filling in fast. How has the bubble tip anemone been for you? Did it split in your system?

@Christopher Marks thanks, i try to make the system as "low" maintenance as possible.

p.s today, max of 43.3 degrees celsius outside, and max of 30 inside, aquarium stayed at 26.3 max with the cooling fan. not bad.

p.s, 43.3°C is 109.94°F , and 30°C is 86°F

 

the fan works better than i was expecting , although nowadays, since we install the 6.5kW solar panels on the roof, we just run the aircon the whole day (since we are not paying for electricity ) , so the fan does not turn on that often anymore.

 

https://pvoutput.org/intraday.jsp?id=54263&sid=49342

 

 

but those are the temperature graph for the last 30 days

the max temp caps at 26.8°C, you can see some flat lines at 26.8°C , this is the fan controller turning on/off to regulate the temp.

 

and the wiggly lines at 25.6 to 25.9 ish is the heater turning on/off

How has the bubble tip anemone been for you? Did it split in your system?

initially put it at the bottom of the tank, it moved up to where it is now, and did not move since. it did split maybe 4 week after i got them (probably due to lack of maintenance on my part, also lost one of the birdnest coral). both of them are still in the same spot since then.

it's filling in fast.

2 years since the tank started 🙂 . probably not going to add much more in this now.... since adding the clam, alk and ca has been dropping rapidly , hence why i installed the dosing pumps. 

 

i am adding around 0.875 dKH ALK per day, and around 7.7ppm CA per day, probably need to bump ca to 10, still monitoring those closely at the moment.

Great production on your solar panels, I have a 4.6kW system here in the sunny desert of Phoenix Arizona, it covers our needs but I do still have to be a little thrifty with the air conditioning. I have a new 2 gallon pico reef jar that I am expecting I'll need to cool down in the upcoming summer days with a fan of some sort, outside temps peak around 47°C in August, I keep the house thermostat at 25.5°C but some rooms warm up faster. I'm always curious to see how other hobbyists in hot climates manage their tank temps, thanks for sharing!
