  1. guess not too many, eh? more likely you'd upgrade to a proper nano and use the capacity for more livestock. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. that is a sweet stand...love the stain and the antique-ish steam punk feel. :)
  3. hey adam, I would test the water and see how your amonia, nitrate and nitrite levles are. generally speaking the cycle takes about a month to establish with clean rock and most do a 50% water change after about 2 weeks.
  4. I agree with Joe...figure out the aquascape and then cure. having it out of the water will kill the cure. :(
  5. doesn't count...internal...however I did not state external in my question, so I've edited it for clarity. ๐Ÿ˜‰ very engenius though, especially the gravel/sand filter concept portion. would be interesting to see if that would catch on... ๐Ÿ˜‰
  6. it's not discontinued...it's been rebranded and changed into a kit that comes with a filter sock, the custom caddy, mightjet pump and their magnetic algae cleaner.
  7. if you do, please share what your goal was and the deets of your sump/refugium setup. ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. well, just confirmed that MarineDepot won't ship aquariums to Canada, due to breakage. I can order from BRS, but freight is half the price of the 22 gallon long...making it almost $500 CAD.
  9. they do...but what do you think the chance of survival is for something as fragile as an aquarium?
  10. I really like the idea of the rimmed 30 gallon breeder, but due to it's size it's classified as a non-shipable item, so I can't get it. I live in the middle of nowhere that takes 2 days of driving to get here. I have a couple concerns with going bigger...a) being overwhelmed and b) having extra expenses due to the size. if I start small, I can use 1 gal distilled water for the changes, so don't need to worry about buying and setting up a RODI system. I can't exactly do what my grand plan would be, but it would let me get something up, gain experience and hopefully delight the grand kids when they visit.
  11. I want good aesthetics as the aquarium will be a centerpiece in the living room. I just realized I can get IM tanks...so I could get something from the Nuvo Black. just debating the IM 20 (non-peninsula) or the 30L. when you guys got into fish keeping, did you start small or jump in big?
  12. get the 13.5 or consider going low tech like WV Reefer. check out her 12 gallon long thats only got live rock for a filter. her KISS approach works! i want to do that with a 22 gallon long.
  13. issue is, the 22 gallon appear to be unobtanium up here in Canuckistan. ๐Ÿ˜ž
  14. I can get a rimmed 20 gal for $70 or a rimless 12 gal for $135. in all honesty, i really want a rimless 22 gal, but theyโ€™re unobtanium in Canada it seems and theyโ€™re 3x the price of the 20 gal janky. iโ€™m debating if the high clarity glass n clean look is worth the price premium.
