  1. Garden of the Geeks

    Garden of the Geeks (GotG) 10g Aga

    This will be my official Tank Journal Might see many posts from me in a row. That is because i will be using this more like a journal than a forum post, just to help me keep track of thoughts and the like SO here it is starting a reef Tank up to compliment 2 10 gallon tanks one is for my sons upgrade to a dirted tank form his 5.5 aga planted the other will be my Reef tank as finances permit!? Going to go with the following equipment to start 10 Gallon tank from big box store as you can see I have here Either Top Fin 20 or AQ 20 have not decided yet but leaning on the AQ 20 till i can get a AQ 70 ABI Tuna Blua Par 38 but not sure if i should get 12 or 23 watt version? Hydor 50w Heater Live sand and rock locally I mainly want to keep a purple fire fin with some torches and lots of Zoas and plays For salt i was going to go with the red sea max coral pro Have refractometer was reading on deep sand beds and would love to keep a 4 inch sand bed but it is only a 10 gallon so that might be out! Would love to here form all of you out there any tips tricks and cheats you all got please share! My big Question of the post is the Top Fin or the AQ 20 till i can afford a AQ 70
  2. I'm a noob and need some help. The husband had a salt previously and we have down sized. In that, we moved all the rock and it fits in a 10g tank, but I'm worried that it's too much for the tank. I'm keeping it super simple, a turbo for the algae and a clown. He seems super happy, but water changes are a little hectic. I usually end up moving rock out to clean around it. How much should I keep, what is best to do with the rock I dont want? I've read about people just taking it out and drying it out. This rock is over 10yrs old, I'm just now starting to take this up again. And amazingly, there still is stuff coming out of the rock. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  3. I have an established 35L nano with a occy Clownfish and a Fire Shrimp. I am thinking of adding a Goby to help keep the sand clean. Which would be the best Goby to add or would this be overcrowding the tank. I donโ€™t want the clown to become hostile to a small Goby. Thanks in advance

    Sapling's Nano

    Hey everyone so I've been on here a while but never documented my DIY 25g since I started it back around march last year, well I regret not documenting it, and lately I've been wanting to start up a smaller tank, so I thought, why not make a thread so I can record it so I can look back on it? I figure this way I can also learn from others and try to keep my questions in at least a lesser amount of threads. So its been official, I took the plunge on buying 14 ibs of BRS reef saver along with some hanna reagent about an hour ago. I made my tank DIY last time, and although I am still interested in doing that since I can tailor it to my needs, Im not the best craftsman wise. So I am currently looking into a couple tanks before I pull the trigger later tonight. it seems I have a couple options Im most interested in; the waterbox 7g or 10g IM nuvo fusion 10 I am a bit torn between the nuvo 10g or waterbox 10g. the fact they are plug and play is a nice bonus, compared to when I did my DIY, as doing a false wall is a bit frustrating when attempting not to shatter acrylic from drilling or scoring. the two are essentially the same price, although the IM nuvo comes with the lid, so I am leaning towards that. How does everyone who has one of these feel about the back chambers? I am currently debating between a Bare bottom tank or at least shallow sand. I never tried a Bare bottom tank and I think I'd really enjoy the look and cleanliness of it since Im already bad at vacuuming my sand in my tank. what do you guys suggest? my planned inhabitant will be either my Rainford's Goby or my Tail Spot Blenny from my 25g. Lately I've seen some random aggression from the blenny towards the Rainford, and Im planning to take one of them out, leaning towards the Rainford. I feel conflicted about putting the rainford in the 10g if its a Bare bottom, since he hasnt taken prepared food (live BBS, frozen, pellet) yet but picks at rocks and sifts the sand. I'm not sure if its refusal of prepared food or rather him being so passive, my other fish take it from him before he has a chance to eat? Besides hopefully the goby once cycled, I do plan to stock with coral, although Im not sure which yet, I know I have a few frags of zoas in my 25 without a home yet, but I also do really like the look of euphillia, and ricordeas. maybe euphillia on the top with zoas and rics mid to low? the lighting will be my finnex 12" Planted+ until I am sure about which Light i want, I am currently thinking of a par LED bulb to hang over, but I might get another nanobox light, just depends what I end up doing, and feels better to me. For my Filtration, I feel like I dont have too much space to play with like I did in the 25g. what would you guys suggest here? I imagine a skimmer would be useful for phosphates, plus a small bio pellet reactor for nitrates, but I am interested to see what others would say instead. maybe purigen and phosguard? not sure yet, but plenty of time to think. Maybe just cut a portion of my chaeto and carry it over, with activated carbon. ~~ anyways Im sure that might be TLDR but thanks everyone who read, I love seeing other peoples journals for reference, and learning from their experiences with their tanks, I'm hoping mine can help someone elses once it matures.
  5. So I'm jumping back into the hobby after a few years, sorta. My first nano was a Fluval Edge 12g. Let me just say it was a learning experience and PITA to maintain. A couple of years after breaking that one down I got a JBJ Cubey 3g. Also a PITA but I managed to have it last up until now with 2 rock nems and a small frogspawn that survived. After 2 horrible tanks to maintain as reef tanks I am here again now. I started the cycle on 4/29/18. Here's my equipment list: Tank: Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 10 Stand: Ikea Sektion Wall Cabinet Filter & flow: InTank Media Basket. Using Filter Floss, Chemi-Pure Blue Nano, and Seachem Matrix. 10lbs of MarcoRocks Key Largo Dry Rock 6-8lbs of CaribSea Ocean Direct Natural Live Sand Added a bag of Bio Pellets that was in my JBJ Cubey Hydor Aqamai KPS Power Head Innovative Marine AUQA Gadget Spin Stream - Return Nozzle Sicce Syncra 0.5 Return Pump InTank Universal Aquarium Surface Skimmer Reef Glass Skimmer w/ AP-3 Air Pump Auto Top-Off: Smart ATO Micro One Gallon Beverage Dispenser Reservoir Lighting: MicMol Aqua Mini G3 Heater: Cobalt Aquatics Neo-Therm Aquarium Heater 75w LIVESTOCK Fish: 2 or 1 Ocellaris Clown Fish (Planned) Wheeler's Shrimp Goby & Tiger Pistol Shrimp Pair (Planned) Tailspot Blenny or Pygmy Possum Wrasse or Pink Striped Wrasse or Blue Striped Gobies (Planning, still have no idea yet) Inverts: 1 Bubble Tip Anemone (Planned) 2 Rock Flower Anemones (transplanted from my JBJ Cubey) 3 Sexy Shrimp (Planned) 1 Cleaner Shrimp (Planned) 1 Porcelain Crab (Planned) Snails: 4 Nerite Snails 6 Florida Cerith Snails 10 Dwarf Cerith Snails 3 Nassarius Snails Corals: Various Softies, LPS, and some hardy SPS (Planned) Branching Hammer (transplanted from my JBJ Cubey) Branching Hammer Frog Spawn Candy Cane Acan GSP (transplanted from my JBJ Cubey) Duncan Zoas Macro Algae: Shaving Brush Mermaids Fan Halimeda 4/29 FTS 5/31/18 FTS
  6. I am re-setting up a Fusion 10g and I want to house mainly an anemone some chalices maybe a stick if i am lucky ...oh and my clownfish. So wanted to get a conversation started regarding the filtration I currently have in mind: Was thinking of going with: Reef Glass Protein Skimmer MarinePure Ceramic Spheres Chaeto Algae Reactor Do you guys think this is overkill? What you think? Thanks for your time.

    The NXN Fusion 10

    To kick things off, this thread will be about updates and the progression of my nuvo 10 thats goal is to be a sps dominant aquarium. Iv been lurking around for a while. I started keeping saltwater tanks on and off for the last 14 years but have really started taking it serious for the last 4 years. I started with a 10g glass aquarium with a HOB filter, it was a FOWLR. Then I got a 30 with some softies. Then I got my first AIO the IM Abyss. The Abyss started leaking so IM warrantied it but the tank was no longer available. So they gave me the lagoon 25 and the nuvo 10 in its place. I like both tanks and decided I want the 25 to be softies and LPS and the 10 to be LPS and SPS. Any suggestions from ppl who have thriving SPS corals in a Nano would be very appreciated and pointed out any mistakes I may be making would be noted. I set up the 10 in September of 2017, and here is where Iโ€™m at so far...

    Clean-Up Crew Confusion

    Hey reefers! One of the last things I ask to set up my 10g reef tank is the clean up crew! I decided on having a no crab clean up crew, because of their possibly violent nature, and having to place in more shells. My stocking is just an Ocellaris Clown, a sexy shrimp, and some tisbe podsร‚ being fed Spectrum Thera A pellets daily, with Rods food biweekly. @Lula_Maeร‚ has recommended me several types of snails, but I am still unclear on how many to add. So how many and what kinds of snails should I add, and when? Thanks ร‚ -Generic Reefer

    Coral Placement in 10g

    Hello! I have a few questions concerning the placement of my soft corals. The aquascape of the tank is so that there are two arches of rock in the back of the tank. On one arch I want to put some Xenia, GSP, and a Toadstool, and on the other, some Clove polyps, Ricordea, and anotherร‚ Toadstool. When it comes to the point in which the corals grow next to each other, will I need to intervene? Should I rearrange the corals? The Xenia, GSP, and Toadstools are something I would really like to have, so if it absolutely comes to it, I will try to create separate "islands" for them. Thanks -Generic Reefer

    10 gallon nano reef advice

    I have been working on laying out the equipment needed for a 10 gallon coral only tank (it's 20 inches long and 12 inches high) where I am planning on getting mostly soft and LPS corals and MAYBE some SPS down the line once I do some more research and have good success with the more hardy corals. I am working on researching everything I need to do to establish this tank successfully as my main concern is and will always be the safety of the corals. I don't care so much about what's "aesthetically pleasing", I just want to give my corals a healthy home. I am aware that 10g is small to house corals and needs constant attention to water quality and I am fully prepared to put forth the time and effort needed. I am currently trying my best to compose a list of items I need for this tank but have seen mixed opinions on certain topics regarding 10 gallon tanks. So far I think I'm going with an ABI Tuna Blue LED Bulb and it comes with two watt options on amazon- 12 and 23. Would it be better to go with the 23? Or too overbearing? I know this light is not dimmable but I'm going to try to get a goose neck clamp to allow some distance between the light and the water. My next question is about a protein skimmer? I've heard it helps a lot with corals and other people say it's a waste of money. Is it better to use sand substrate or go bare bottom? What filtration is best for a tank this size? And in general, what equipment is absolutely necessary for a tank this size housing only corals, no fish? I'd appreciate as much help as I can get Thanks a ton!

    Galaxyhydro LED Lights

    For a 10 gallon aquarium (20 inches long and 12 inches deep) would the galaxyhydro LED dimmable light be suitable for growing soft corals and LPS corals? Would it also be strong enough for SPS corals if I decide to try them in the future? Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/Galaxyhydro-55x3w-Dimmable-Spectrum-Aquarium/dp/B00INM0J1M/ref=pd_sbs_199_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00INM0J1M&pd_rd_r=ZTGPB564VKVTSWYDYC85&pd_rd_w=Q8V5Q&pd_rd_wg=1MeCK&psc=1&refRID=ZTGPB564VKVTSWYDYC85 Any information on this light or any other light fixture that may be suitable for my tank is much appreciated, I am looking to make sure I get something to encourage coral growth and create a healthy environment for them to live in. Thanks a ton!

    New nano build

    Hey yal, I'm new to the forums. I've been keeping freshwater tanks since about 2010. I have a 65 gallon freshwater with goldfish and 5 gallon planted betta. I want to start a nano reef tank, probably a 10g or 15g - maybe 20g. I don't want to start too small (5 gallon) because I know that I will want to upgrade eventually. As for stock, I want to have a pair of percula or ocellaris clowns, a few soft corals, and maybe (and this is a big maybe) an anemone down the road. I want a minimalist look. I've looked at IM Nuvo series, the Fluval EVO, and nano Cubes as potential options. I'm just undecided at this point. I also don't want to rush it and regret anything later. What I do know for sure is that I don't want to run pass $400-500 in budget. If anybody has any tips or recommendations on what brands, lights etc. let me know.
