Welcome to my Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 20 build!

 

Was out of the hobby for a bit but still had my 75-gallon tank running at my parent's place. Recently caught the reef bug and decided it was time to set one up in my apartment in NYC.

If you liked what you saw in my 75g, wait till you see what I have in store for this 20g tank.

 

Equipment List:

What's in the tank:

  • Clownfish pair: 1 Mocha Clownfish | 1 Phantom Clownfish
  • Royal Gramma RIP
  • Yellow Clown Goby RIP
  • Bangai Cardinal
  • Midas Blenny

I remember your tank when I first started getting into this hobby. Looking forward to this build!

 

Do you still have the 75g set up at your parent's house then?

Your new IM20 is coming along really well.

 

Have you done black substrate before? What are the pros? Any cons?

Never had black sand, always ran with fiji pink sand. The girlfriend wanted black, so we went with black haha

 

From what I understand is that the poop and other garbage can be seen easily but I could say the same for white sand. Also, haven't heard of any issues regarding changes in parameters.

Did a cosmetic upgrade to the stand and converted the black into a gloss white using vinyl wrap 😃

Nice job on the vinyl wrap!  Scape is on point as well.  Looking forward to seeing this tank filled with corals.

Congrats on the new apartment! I def do need more of that gorgonian and whatever other frags you got. LOL! I just got back into the hobby about 9 months. Had couple of mini crashes but everything is stable now.
