  1. ryans_ mr aqua 22 gallon long

    I had diatoms and little patches of green algae which I was hoping it would help control. Not sure how much of the algae it actually ate though. Now that all the algae seems to be dying off, I'll have to find him a new home. Unless you have any feeding suggestions?
  2. Nano Addict's 20g Fusion

    Looking good! I love 10 gallons. With the right scape and livestock, it's actually quite big. Great work! I hate taking pics with my iphone as well. I tried taking pictures with the "Aquarium Cam" app and that was a little better. Although, it removed the blue hue, the pics looked so grainy. Now I just turn off all the blues on my Radion and take pictures with the regular iphone camera and the pics turn out a lot better. Not sure if you can turn off the blues easily on your nanobox.

    now i am... didn't really think about it. that can't be pretty... looks like he's going in the fuge until i find him a new home. thanks for the heads up, @Muraki

    finally finished my cycle 2 weeks ago and started adding some livestock (i'll have to apologize for these pics and any pics moving forward... trying my best with my iphone!) stylo with his nudi buddy wasn't planning on getting one but he was the last fish left at a tank breakdown sale... couldn't leave him i love hairy sps picked up a used bubble magus curve 5. for some reason, i thought if i didn't clean it, it would produce skinmate immediately. totally wrong. also added a monti cap and a tiny hammer frag. along with the other frags, i'm going to see how these guys do before adding anything more expensive. fingers crossed! there's also 2 yellowtailed damsels and a high fin goby/pistol pair somewhere in there.

    Like I said, I've been out of the game for a while. When it came time to choose a light, I was a bit overwhelmed. Thanks to the folks on here (and Craigslist!), I settled with an EcoTech Radion XR30w Pro G3. But now what?!?! Just too many configuration options. I ended up importing another reefers schedule and loading it up. Anybody have suggestions on how high to hang the light? I have it at 12" now. From 2pm - 7pm it runs at its max intensity (68%).
  7. Lighting suggestions for a 22 gal long?

    I found a good deal (or at least what I think is a good deal) for a Radion XR30w gen 3 ($390). While I was really looking forward to the nanobox quad, I couldn't pass up the option of having a quality light and saving $300+ in the process. Thanks all! btw, the guy I bought it from has 2 more if anybody is interested. Just DM me.

    I opted for 1 drain and 1 return so that I could still have an MP10 in there without looking crowded. My only worry was...what if the overflow gets blocked? My solution was to modify the return chamber of my sump. I sealed the chamber so that in the event that water flow stops, water to the return is also halted.

    First order of business was the overflow and return. After much consideration..... I just copied what somebody smarter than me did (@Muraki). 1.5" drain and a 3/4" return. Actually, Muraki did 2 sets. Me just one. I also followed his lead by putting in a monster of a return pump (flow rate > 2000 gals) and using some sort of random flow generator on the return.

    Sorry bout the casualties. But I still love the tank. I like how everything looks so large and matured. Great job!

    Great feedback. Thanks @Scorch

    Looking at your build, you've proved you can house anything with the Quad. How high do you hang it off the water surface? Deciding if I should get the 9in or 15in goose neck.
