1st Reef Tank - Budget Build - JBJ Rimless AIO 10 Gallon, Budget Build,

Recommended Posts

What’s up everybody! This is my first shot at a reef tank. When I set up this I originally wasn’t planning on posting it online or anything so I don’t have two many shots of the build and progress along the way. Started the tank a little under a year ago, but just last week I drained it, salvaged what livestock I could, put in new sand bed and aquascaping, and reconfigured my AIO filtration method. Been through a lot of trials and tribulations so far
 

Equipment list:

Tank: JBJ rimless 10-gallon AIO aquarium and stand

Light: Nicrew 30W reef LED aquarium light

1st 

 

1st filtration chamber:

filter floss, chemipure blue, GFO

2nd chamber: (originally started out as a refugium)

marine pure ceramic bioballs seeded with Micobacter7

3rd chamber: 

cheap heater I bought off Amazon, and the return pump that came with the JBJ tank (return pump intake set to ~50%)

 

Live stock:

hammers

zoas

mushrooms

acans

duncan

blasto

lobo

favia

clown pair

 

Modifications:

Added a random flow generator nozzle - best $20 I’ve spent on the tank!

 

Let me know if you guys have any questions/advice! Much appreciated!

Tank looks great.

 

My only suggestion/advice would be not to use gfo. It really should only be used on a as needed basis. It strips phosphate and fast. 0 phosphate is not ideal and can lead to serious problems.
