  1. Hello fine folks of the internet. Here I am yet again with ANOTHER build. I rashly decided to sell my 78g and 65g and upgrade to something 120g and up. I ended up buying a 150g blah blah blah long story short, I messed up. Rushed things, ended up tankless. After my fish sat in rubbermaid totes for about 3 months, something happened. I did a large water change and overnight ALL my fish died. This was a nightmare, I was distraught. I did realize the next day that my large Clarkii clownfish Big Mama survived. After debating on selling her for a while I decided to get her a home. That brings us to where we are now. A 40 gallon breeder. As some of you may now my last 40B won TOTM last October. I loved that tank and everything about it. That's how I landed back into a 40B. Things will be a bit different this time. I am taking my sweet sweet time setting it up and buying equipment that will last. Equipment List: Lighting: 2x Ecotech Radion XR30W Pro Flow: Sicce Syncra 3.0 Return and Ecotech MP10 Heater: 200w Jaeger Controller: Neptune Apex EL Skimmer: Nyos Quantum Overflow: Eshopps Eclipse Sump: Fiji Cube 24 or 26" ATO: Tunze Osmolator Rock/Sand: Caribsea LifeRock and Aragonite Livestock Plans: Other than Big Mama and her carpet anemone. I plan on stocking this tank solely with Montipora. No softies, no lps. ONLY Montipora. As far as fish go, I want a blue spot jawfish, something to sift the sand, and a bunch of damsels that can stand up to big mama. Ill attach some pictures today. I still have a lot of the equipment to buy. I plan on having water in the tank within the next 4-6 weeks. Happy Reefing, thanks for looking..
  2. Hey everyone! I am new to the forum and thought what better way to introduce myself than to start a journal for my nano! A little bit about me, I am a graduate student at the University of Michigan and will be graduating in 2019. I am originally from Chicago - hence the username! I have been in the hobby for about 10 years and have had tanks from FOWLRS to full blown reefs. I have always wanted to start a journal for one of my tanks but never really got around to it. As a graduate student this has made things a little more difficult. But I recently came across a deal I could not pass up that is perfect for my situation! The goal is to document everything in this thread. Let me introduce to you my new nano! It is an IM 10 gallon fusion with the following equipment: inTank Media basket (just made the switch from a custom IM media basket) MP10wes vortech Ghost Desktop skimmer Tunze nano ATO AI prime Cobalt heater with a finnex temp controller IM spin stream The tank currently has 2 clowns, a starry blenny and a mix of SPS and LPS. Here are a couple photos! Pardon my cell phone photos, I am working on getting a better camera.. Looking forward to meeting all of you! October 2019 - IM 25 gallon fusion: September 2018: May 2017:

    A WARNING ABOUT AQUAILLUMINATION

    Three weeks ago, I purchased an AI Prime, with the Flex mount from my LFS in Montreal, QC Canada. A few days ago the Allen key screw dislodged, making the arm unstable, so I contacted AquaIllumination, and they told me to go to the store where I purchased from, and they would deal with the distributor. I went to the store , and they told me AquaIllumination considers this physical damage and would not replace it. So I would need to buy another mount. This is in no way the LFS fault, this falls on the hands of AquaIllumination... The product is new, and clearly defective, but they refuse to handle the issue. Many other people have issues with their flex mounts as well, It is poor quality, and the customer service along with it is awful. Needless to say I will not be buying from AquaIllumination again.

    Bageezus's IM Nuvo 20

    Okay so I decided to get back into reef keeping. I still have a few freshwater tanks sitting around and finally just got the itch to start up a new tank. I decided to go with a IM Nuvo 20.

  7. I have a Ecotech Vectra M1 Pump that was used only for the water test. I decided to go with a different return pump. Masking $275 shipped. I will post some more detailed pictures of everything.

    MP10 or Tunze 6055?

    Would a mp10 or 6055 be better for a nuvo 20 mixed reef?
  9. Started this tank on March 30, 2017 with stock pump and filter sock, koralia nano from previous tank, and 5 lb of LR, and about 8.5 gallons of saltwater to start. The tank is almost a year old now and some upgrades have happened. (will take some better pics with the camera later) Equipment -IM Ti ATO (going to tunze nano ato) -Ran a kessil a80 for 11 months before going to a radion (diffusion kit/rm -Jbj 1/15 hp Chiller with 1.0 return -Sicce 0.5 return - inTank Media rack with 2 filer floss on top, seachem matrix, bottom two filter flosses -inTank universal media skimmer -was running a IM desktop Media Reactor with carbon but since the RMS mount is fairly big i had to remove the reactor (don't mind that because its freaking study!) So in turn I have a Fudge basket that I might run with more matrix in it if the tunze 9001 doesnt work out (coming) -MP10 wQD -inTank Frag rock (2) - 5 lb LR -3 lb Sand (going to take down to less lb's till its barley covered probably -Cobalt Aquatics Neotherm 100w heater - 6.5 chemipure Live Stock: - Rainbow Acans - Duncans - Walking Aussie Duncan - Purple Tipped Frogspawn - Young Maxima Clam - Rock anemone -3 nassarius snails -3 Trochus Snail -3 Aussie young scolymia/s? LOL -Side plant is one of 3 succulents I got at a baby shower and decided to try to grow it under the XR-15 instead of my bedroom window lol, so if they switch out ever that why. Let me know if you have any thoughts on the tank! Plan on upgrading to a Lagoon 25 at some point this year I hope!
  10. Hey all, question regarding coloration/“pop” improvement with Ecotech Radion upgrade options.I’ve been running a G1 Radion for something like 6 years over my 34 gallon Solana. I’m pretty satisfied with output, and the spread is acceptable, corals grow fine, so no real “problems.” But I’ve never loved the coloration it gives my tanks, compared to what I’ve seen on other tanks with different LED’s or newer Radions. So I’m considering an upgrade. Obviously the most affordable option is to send in the one I already own for Ecotech to upgrade to the G3. And of course since I’m thinking about it, I’ve also been checking out the G4 and G4 pro. I don’t need the G4pro for the increased output, but I do like the idea of more color channels. What I want to know is: is it worth the upgrade (any of them) in terms of visual appeal and making colors pop? Will I see a noticeable difference from G1 to G3? Is G4 way better than G3 (aesthetically)? Has anyone made any of these leaps and can talk to how the corals appear under the improved spectrum? Will the G3 upgrade be enough to see that new “pop”? Is the G4Pro way better than the regular G4 in terms of color/“pop”?I’d love some first-hand experiences with this. Thanks!
  11. As the title says, if you’re getting rid of your ECOTECH backup battery, instead if tossing it in the trash. Message me and I’ll gladly take it. I just need 2 by the way. Hopefully you’re just around SoCal 92354 so I can pick it up. Thanks!
  12. Hey guys, looking for some input on people’s thoughts on lighting a 12” deep, 18” x 18” cube for predominantly sps. I am am torn between an AI prime HD and an XR15 pro gen 4. I understand that the XR15 highly out guns the prime, but I am intrigued about the power the prime HD can produce. As I said it is going to be predominantly sps frags growing out with some lps. Has anyone had any positive results running the prime hd with sps 10” - 12” below the surface using the prime HD rear mounting kit? Anyone think the XR15 is going to be overkill for the size of the tank?

  17. Hello all, CURRENT FTS: I'm new to the hobby of saltwater aquariums and wanted to share the progression of my build with you all! I've done freshwater planted tanks in the past and finally made the decision to play in the big leagues and start a reef tank! Here is my equipment list so far: ADA 60F 8.6 Gallon rimless aqaurium 30 gallon DIY sump with refugium and liverock sections Mame medium sized overflow Eshopps Eclipse Overflow Box (small) Kessil A160WE 40W LED Light DIY Protein skimmer Bubble Magus Curve 5 Protein Skimmer 36W LED Grow light for Refugium Top Fin circulation pump Ecotech Mp10 Koolermax AR-122 6-stage RO+DI Quietpro 1.2 Controlled Pump DIY float valve auto top off Jebao dosing pump Since I live near the coast in Southern California, I will be using mostly natural seawater filtered through filter floss and activated carbon for my water changes (except for after rainstorms when runoff destroys the water quality). I cant wait to have the tank up and running! There are many pictures to come so stay tuned! (Yes, I know the filter sock is the complete wrong size)
  18. See blue arrows for screws to remove. This is a gen 1 or 2 pro with gen 3 upgrade, your radion may very. Do not do this tear down with out an antistatic mat, if you're clumsy, and IF you're still in warranty send it back to Ecotech. Also if you're fan is Hella loud or if your unit is running hot take the time to use a stiff bristle brush and clean out the dust/salt creep.

  20. Have 2 quiet drive pumps that are in fantastic condition. Both are less than 3 months old, it just seems that no matter how I position the pumps or the program I run it's just too much flow for my reefer 250 to have 2 of them so I'm looking to downgrade to mp10's or similar.Will update with pics later tonight once I get home. They are currently still running on the tank, so they'll need to be taken down and vinegar bath/cleaned before shipping.Never run more than 30% each.Asking $300 OBO shipped each!

    MP10 programming

    I recently purchased an MP10Wes (used) and am having trouble programing it. Last night I set it to short pulse mode and when I woke up this morning the light was green and a few hours later it changed to red. Did it change modes on me? How can I set it to stay in short pulse mode?
  24. Hello, I'm selling my Ecotech MP40w Quiet Drive for $275 obo. Used on my 40 gallon breeder. Only used 15% of its power otherwise my corals will blow away lol! I will cover shipping and PP fee.
