  1. Great points - the counter can take the weight. Not too concerned with cooking as I've had a tank there for 5 years (less than 10 gallons). I'm really just looking to see if anyone has specifically a Nuvo 20 on their counter that can add some insight in regards to servicing the tank as I don't plan on getting a skimmer or heater...it'll be carbon and other bagged media in the back...so I'm thinking the access might work but I'd like expert opinion before pulling the trigger. As for the lights - I'm going LED's and will mount it to the bottom of the cabinet so that's solved for...it's more of a question if I can get the media out from the back chambers.
  2. I have a Fluval Edge 6 gallon. Not the best to work with but I can squeeze in everything I need to do. I'm really looking at IM Nuvo dimensions as that'll be the tank. I think it might be too slim to squeeze in :-(
  3. Hello beautiful people! I think I've played out my current setup and I'm 97% sure I'm going to get a Nuvo 20. My only concern is that it'll be in my kitchen...sitting on my counter top right under my cabinet. Typically the cabinets sit 18 inches above the countertop and mine follow that same law...so I'm looking to see what people have done with the limited clearance they have. What light has been used and how the access is considering the tank sits 13 inches tall. Is the 5 inches or clearance enough to work on the tank? Have a lighting unit (if so - which have people used)? Is there enough room to remove the filters in the back? Any help would be greatly appreciated before I pull the trigger :-)
  4. I know - I don't have any time to take on something like this so I was really hoping to find something. If you had the 453nm lights (all blue), I would have purchased them all from you. I need something to supplement the Daylight LED's over the tank.
  5. That looks like an option. I'll look further into them...but I wanted something that was ready to use and not needing to be built. 12" in far too long. I need something 6.5" or shorter to fit inside the top. Basically I need something like this: EcoTech stopped making these small ECOPICO LED Strips so now I need to find an alternative for my tank :-( The ones I had burnt out...so now my corals are getting half the light they normally would and none of the color. The stock lights are 36 (low-powered) daylight LED's. I need something to supplement them so any insight from the folks here would be huge!
  6. So I was using a 453nm EcoPico LED Strip in addition to the standard LED lamp that comes with the tank. My EcoPico burned out...the only store carrying them is sold out as Ecoxtic discontinued these and i need to figure out a replacement that size. It was less than 6 inches long (about)...and focused on being a 453nm focused LED fixture. Is there anything on the open market that I can buy that will help add additional lighting to the tank?? I've looked and cannot find anything!
  7. Those these include the hanging kit from EcoTech?
  8. Very nice! Thinking of buying the 170 version...
  9. I'm just posting this here as I still have 1 light for sale. Price is $75 plus actual shipping costs (I'll pay for packaging material, box and everything else). http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2591246
  10. Wow...beautiful tank. Absolutely stunning!! I just read all 16 pages and was blown away. I was actually looking at this tank earlier today and pricing it out with LED's (thinking AI LED's)...but wasn't sure where to put it in the house. My LFS was trying to sell me on the Kessil Spotlight but I feel like the coverage is an issue compared to something like the AI Hydra 26 HD. I'm not a fan of the spotlight effect...figured it'll look better with a decently wide unit (12-15 inches wide). I'm most likely going to pull the trigger on this and upgrade my 6 gallon (the time has come). Any issues with the filtration, also what are you running in the back for filtration? Any negative feedback on the tank? I hear the return pump should be upgraded and a powerhead needs to be added...but that's not to bad.
  11. Just read this thread - absolutely amazing attention to detail. Beautiful tank and I'm now reading your Blog lol
  12. $130 shipped! Let's get these moved!
  13. Stunning!
