norbert's waterbox 10

Recommended Posts

I added a clown to this tank a couple days ago so I decided to start a journal today! I previously had a 29 gallon nano for a couple years before converting that to a freshwater planted tank. I had never had a freshwater tank before (other than a small tank with a single betta) so I wanted to try something new. After a few months I decided I wanted to get back into nano reefing so I bought a waterbox 10 cube and an AI Prime HD.

 

Equipment is the waterbox and ai prime, stock pump with carbon and filter floss, hydor koralia 425 gph pump, and 7-8 pounds of rock from my old tank that I bleached before adding. No sand so cleaning is easier and I can do whatever I want with flow.

 

It's just the clown for now, although I hope to add another fish and a mix of different corals. Livestock suggestions are always appreciated!

 

Here's the tank as of 7/12/19, any tips for taking decent tank pics would also be great:20190712_154506.thumb.jpg.059f73001625ed202e786dd0277da213.jpg

 

And here's a blurry pic of the clown:

My only question for now is about the cloudy water, it's especially noticeable around the rocks with the light on (the picture is pretty close to how it looks in person). I just turned the light on for the first time yesterday so I don't know how long it's been like this. Is it just a normal bacteria bloom?

Tanks looks great.

 

Actually @banasophia documented great instructions on taking pics. Check out the TOTM, it's really helpful.

 

 

 

There are a lot of great corals you can do.

 

Fungia plates, torches, hammers, acans, favia's, chalice, ricordea, leptoseris, scoly's.

 

Rock flower anemones are great too.

Alright it's time for an update already. My lfs had a buy-2-get-1-free sale on corals so I couldn't pass that up. Here's the latest tank pics (my photography skills are a work in progress):

I got a new coral yesterday and it seems to be doing well so far. This is my first ever sps, a montipora.

A diatom bloom started yesterday so I'll probably add a clean up crew soon. All the livestock are doing well, although recently my clown has been picking at some of the corals, especially the zoas. I think he might be looking for something to host him.
