Hi folks, This is my first post on nano reef even though I'm a stalker for several years and only signed up recently. I have a Pico Fluval Spec V with a bunch of sps and some zoas . I had an idea of stacking another Fluval Spec V next to it and running a refugium but instead of drilling , I want to run the outlet of each pump into the other tank . My concern is that if the flow rate is off by a few ml I would eventually overflow one of the tanks ... the theory is to use float switches to stop overflowing .. dunno about the practical part. Has anyone tried this before ? If so please help my idea come to life . Any help/advice is greatly appreciated Tank specs: Fluval Spec V .Nanobox Tide mini . Hydor 214 with wavemaker 5secs on off cycle . Smart Micro Ato . 50W heater . Tank inhabitants: Lone nearly naked clown about half inch Pom pom crab 1 Mexican trochus 1 Margarita snail 1 Turbo snail 3 micro blue legged hermits Corals: Forest fire digi Pink lemonade Acro Some kind of blue Tort Green Monti Pink Monti Hollywood Stunner Green Stylopora Green birdsnest Ponape birdsnest Tabeling Acros (2) Zoanthids 5 types 2 Gorgonians.

Hi all - new to the forum. Have experience with fresh and brackish, but this is my first salt/reef tank. This is my first post since setting up my tank. Welcome any feedback. Tank set up on 3/10/17: Fluval Spec V Stock Filter, Light and Pump Coral 25 watt heater CaribSea live sand 4.5 lbs of live rock Salinity: 1.023 [No other testing done. Plan to bring water to my local shop on Friday to test levels and pick up my test kit so I can do more at home] Added Dr Tims: One and Only when first put in H20 Likely upgrades: Aq600 and/or Hydor 180 Light (eventually) maybe T5. Haven't explored much yet. Haven't committed but thinking of adding GSP + Zoa to start and a few inverts. Then one or two swimmers. Think rock formation may be a bit much for size tank. I like the layout but may remove some once things stabilize and I add livestock. (Got one one feather duster that hitchhiked.) Let me know what you think! Thanks!
Hi all, this is my first saltwater aquarium. I used to keep a fresh water tank some time ago. I always wanted to start a saltwater tank. My daughter showed interest in having a fish tank so I used that as an excuse. I've been reading everything I can. Needless to say there are lots of differing opinions and contradictory statements out there. Even the fish store told me to cycle the old way with a damsel... So far I have the tank, salt water from the store, live rock (wet at the store with purple growth, dead detritous, no visible live critters in three days), live sand, heater and that's about it. The tank is cycling now I guess? Ammonia is 0, salinity 1.022, pH 8.4, 78 degrees, for three days now. My understanding is that I may not have a "real" cycle? I'm planning on getting the water tested in a week. Any comments or suggestions? Once the water is safe, should I am thinking of adding the clean up crew first. Any comments on that? Should I add 10 critters all at once? I want at least a shrimp, hermit crab and then snails. The plan after that would be two clown fish. Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
