  1. Hello, So im looking into getting a protein slimmer for the new reef tank I’m wanting to set up. The tank is 20 gallons and will one day have a clown fish anenome and hopefully a tuxedo urchin. I’m hoping to get suggestions on good brands at an affordable price, and models that are good for a 20 gallon tank.
  2. Hello Everyone, I am new to the forum and new to the hobby. This is my first attempt at keeping a saltwater reef tank so I'm sure I will need lots of advice along the way. The tank was started on 9/7/2018 so it has been running for just over a week. Currently my setup is... Equipment: 20G IM Nuvo Fusion Orbit Marine Pro LED (Dual Fixtures) with Ramp Controller 75W Jager Trutemp Heater Tunze Turbelle Nanostream 6015 Powerhead 2X Spin Stream Nozzles Chaetomax Refugium Light Digital Thermometer Rock and Sand: 20 lbs live sand - Arag Alive West Caribbean Reef 20 lbs Liferock Dry Rock 2 lbs Live Rock (from LFS) Macro Algae: I purchased a clump of Chaeto from the local fish store for the refugium and got a couple a freebies buried inside. I believe they are Red Razor Bryothamnion and Gracilaria Hayi. FTS (9/10/18) : I am still playing with the settings on the ramp controller. If anyone wants to share their recommendation for a good light cycle on the Orbit Marine Pro that would be great. I look forward to sharing my progress and documenting the evolution of this tank.

    Ok so after lots and lots of thinking... We decided we are changing tanks from our JBJ NanoCube 28. I got tired of the bright white lights off the NanoCube and wanted more of a blue color light, like the Kessil gives off. So I setup the Nuvo 20, that was at the school, in our living room. So I will be "breaking down" the NanoCube and it will be given a rebirth in my classroom in the fall for our club. I plan on keeping all the rock that is in here live and cleaning up the tank for the new school year and putting it on a smaller stand so the kids can reach it. Here is my Journal for the new tank. Equipment: Tank - IM Nuvo Fusion 20 Pump - MJ-1200 (Pulled the Stock) Light - Kessil a160we (Bought from here, DIY Mounted with Spectral Controller) Heater - Finnex HMA 100W Heater ATO - Want to use the AutoAqua Smart ATO (Not the Micro) but it did not seem to work with the black glass on the back (Anyone else have problems with this?), so right now I have a Tunze ATO (can’t remember exact model.) Filtration: Rock - 20Lbs Dry Rock (I think BRS - Sold at Local LFS, was gonna be for a Lagoon 25 that never happened) Substrate - Ocean’s Direct Caribbean Live Sand IM Media Basket(want to upgrade to inTank) with their Mechanical Sponges, had good experience with them in the classroom, may switch over if I get InTank baskets Filter Sock - Nothing in it at the moment, just there to catch debris Goals for this tank: Over the last year and 4 months I have maintained a 28 gallon NanoCube with pretty good success, there were a few things that I wish I would have known when getting into the hobby. For one how much I hated putting my arms way down into a deep-ish tank when doing maintenance. Two how much it costs for Chemi-pure elite every 3 weeks. I also hope to keep a much more engaging Journal that folks can follow along with us. So I kept both of these things in mind when setting up this setup, I made sure that maintenance of the tank will be very easy, ie. ample room to work in the tank and around the rocks to stir up the sandbed and keep that clean. Secondly the goal for this tank will be to run very little in terms of chemical filtration. I wish when i set up my first tank that I understood more about “refugiums” and MacroAlgae, so I specifically am planning on incorporating some form of refugium in the back chambers and a couple display macros that will help with sucking up excess nutrients. Ideally with a child on the way, this tank will take minimal maintenance time - 30-60 minutes a week not counting running an algae magnet over the glass every day or so. Another thing with this tank that I am excited about is controlling exactly what goes into it, the 28gallon I bought from an LFS fully setup (I am sure now that I overpaid lol.) So with this one I am going Dry Rock with a couple rubble pieces from my Pico to help seed the tank. I originally bought the dry rocks that I did with a scape in mind for a Nuvo 25 Lagoon tank that we thought we were getting, that didn’t happen. When I bought the rocks I immediately began “curing” them in a 10 gallon tank with saltwater and an AC70 with just a sponge in it. I did this because I had read that dry rocks tend to “leech” phosphates and from what I can tell it’s because they were not cleaned very well based on anecdotal evidence. They have sat in there since April with water circulating and being topped off every few days, about once every week or two I would take a turkey baster and blast the rocks to get as much dust out of them as I could. Towards the middle of May I put a couple pieces of rubble Rock from my pico in there and then week before Memorial Day I put a bottle of Bio-Spira in the tank… This is where I may have made my first mistake, after dropping in the bottle on a Wednesday, my wife decided we were gonna take a last minute vacation for Memorial Day before the baby comes, so i was not able to test levels during this time. When I came back my Ammonia was reading “Zero”, Nitrite was “Zero” and Nitrate was between 60-80. I did a 50% Water Change and dropped in some more Bio-Spira then left for almost a week to help my best friend move from Chicago to Burlington, VT. When I came back the tank was measuring 60 Nitrate and No Ammonia or Nitrite, so based on all that I have gathered about the cycle of a reef tank, my cycle was finished. This past Friday June 8th I finally got the stand together and bought the upgraded pump. On Saturday I got the sand and water and proceeded to fill the tank up. Again still no Ammonia or Nitrites showing, Nitrates were measuring in at 10-15. After all of this I just decided to set the timer up on the Kessil and find a schedule and put some macro algae in there. After a couple of days of the Macro doing fine I added a small frag of Frogspawn to test the waters. Everything seems to be happy! Planned Livestock: Planning on Moving over our fish from the 28 2X Clownfish (Standard Occelaris and Darwin) 1X Pajama Cardinal New Additions: Possibly a Tailspot Blenny or Goby/Shrimp Combination Planned Inverts: Cleaner Skunk Shrimp (Already have in my 28Gallon) Rock Flower Anemones - Planning to have a “Garden” of them off the Left Side of the Aquascape Snails - Will have an Assortment of Trochus, Nassarius, Turbo, Fighting Conch and Astreas (Don’t think I will do Hermits this time around) Possibly a small urchin down the line Softy Corals: Assorted Zoas - Goal is to cover the “arch” with them as they grow out. Ricordeas - Planning to move over my Blue, Orange and Green Florida Ricordeas and maybe add a few more to create a “Ric Garden” on the Bottom Right of the rockwork (there is sorta a cavish area there) LPS Corals: Hammers - I have two currently in the 28 that I plan on Moving over, will be placing these up on the rocks above the “Ric Garden” along with…. Frogspawn - I have currently in the Nuvo as a “water-testing” coral (they should be fine next to the hammers, based on information that I have read) Probable additions: I will most likely try my hand with Acans again, I like the looks of them but I think the lights in the JBJ NanoCube were just too much for them. Hopefully this time I can keep them, planning to keep them on the substrate most likely under the “arch” Candy Canes - Thinking I will move over the Candy Cane Coral that I have in the 28, but only if I can figure out how to successfully kill the vermitid snails that are coming out it is in many different places lol - Not sure where I will place them yet probably above the RFAs once they settle in. SPS: Really I’m not the biggest fan of them, plus I know our Family Lifestyle does not bode well for the demands of most SPS, but I have a Birdsnest that has done phenomenal for us in the 28gallon and I plan I keeping that as well. FTS 8-21-18: FTS 7-13-18: Picture of the Rockscape with ideas of where I plan to place corals: Picture of the Rockscape without the colored circles 🙂 Here's a quick pic of the two tanks next to each other. I have put a lot of thoughts into my fish so far in the tank and I would ideally like to add one more so I will put a couple of options down below and maybe you all can give me some opinions on adding those. I have also put a lot of thought into the corals that I like and would want, I am thinking I may also add some Dendros down the line or if you think there is anything else I should look at adding please let me know. Let me know what you think and if I am missing any key information here for being successful? Or just your thoughts on my plans! Thanks!
  4. October 2018 FTS Well, here goes! After having been out of the reefing world since 2007, this past December I decided to start up a simple 10g tank... a few fish, some corals, nothing fancy. Of course I underestimated how much I love this hobby and couldn't resist the urge for something just a little bigger with a few more bells and whistles. Enter the IM 20 Fusion... the box was bigger than expected upon arrival, pretty sure the UPS man was cursing me while hauling it out of the truck at 830pm. Equipment - 20 gallon Innovative Marine Fusion (Actual volume ~14 gallons) - Stock return pump Since 1.5 Return Pump - Hydor Koralia 240 Powerhead x2 - Aqamai KPS powerhead - Finnex HMO 50W Heater - Smart Micro ATO - Nanobox Duo Plus - Apex Jr. - 2x BRS 1.1mL/min dosing pumps - Dosing BRS 2-part Filtration - Innovative Marine 200 micron filter sock (left chamber) - IM media caddy with filter floss and chemipure blue - Chaeto reactor - ~15lbs live rock - ~20lbs aragalive live sand Stocking - True Percula Clown x2 - Sixline Wrasse - High Fin Red-Banded Goby - Yellow watchman goby - Jawfish - tailspot blenny - Randalli Goby Not gonna fit down the hallway like this BRS did a great job with the exterior packaging and the tank itself was well secured within the interior box. Looks great on the stand I debated doing a full tank switch in one day, but opted for patience and decided to allow the 20g to cycle using water from the 10g and some of the established sandbed. The 20g is going where the 10 is currently sitting, going to have to perform some delicate moving to make room... With some help from the fiance' we got both tanks moved, now I just have to level up the stand and get some water in this thing, then going hunting for some additional live rock! Right now, everything is still stock on the IM20, debating upgrading the return pump for a little more flow any and all suggestions are welcome!
  5. Hey, So now that I have saturated myself with many hours of countless reading, I am ready build and manage a tank. I decided to go with this route because of equipment I already had. 10 gallon all in one setup. A very good starter read is here by steelhealr http://www.nano-reef.com/forums/index.php?...;hl=submersible the inspiration for this build and help came from lil'wrasse cool http://www.nano-reef.com/forums/index.php?...126726&st=0 I went into greater detail than most of you will need but these are questions I had when I was starting so... bear with it. Now for the pics, This is for a standard 10 gallon fish tank. The silocone will fill in the gaps so hair pin precision is not needed here. the bulkhead how it looks That is where I am for now. I will post more with fuge and siliconed. bzphotog

    Tsinguílev's nano reef

    Namaste All, My name is Wladimir Tsinguilev. I reside in the capital of Bulgaria, Sofia. Since I can remember birds (and later on ornithology,https://www.hbw.com/ibc/u/11943), everything related to nature and drums (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCln0m94H1_eYyW8pWCw-WLA/videos?view_as=subscriber) always fascinated me. Reefkeeping was something that I got acquainted with years later. I was attracted by the cornucopia of colors and vividness exposed in the photos available on the internet of all the coral colonies and marine fishes in the tanks and wanted to have a reef aquarium someday. As a kid I kept freshwater aquariums, bettas, turtles, parrots, dogs and cats but the reef aquarium was something unheard of back in the day in Bulgaria. As a matter of fact the first source on reefkeeping that I was exposed to was at 9 years of age at the library of the Institute of Ecology in Sofia. It was a German magazine called DATZ Aquarium&Terrarium and a lot of books on ornithology and nature. Books and magazines are still mandatory for me as of today and I do consider myself a bibliophile, even though we live in the age of the internet, computers and all the high tech paraphernalia. I started my little artificial slice of the ocean at the end of August of 2013 and the system is still running. It is a 20 gallon (45x45x40) mixed reef. On various occasions I changed and rearranged the aquascape, corals, fish and other inhabitants and today I am happy to say that I do not make waterchanges and finally got the perfect match as far as chemistry is concerned (ATI essentials 1,2and 3 is doing great for me). I will post photos in a chronological fashion as it was difficult to make a diary over the years, and I always thought it is very difficult to keep one in timely fashion. PART I The tank is rimless and the stand is made of glass. Wavemaker Hydor Koralia, live rock from Indonesia, a Centropygae flavicauda back at the center, Xenia sp., Caulastrea sp., Euphyllia, Feather duster, a Trochus snail and Carib sea sand bed. In the right corner there is a Wheeler's Shrimp Goby (Amblyeleotris wheeleri), a fish with great personality. A close-up of this nano inhabitant, suitable even for pico tanks. Nassarius snails patrolling the neighborhood, one of them is still with me to this day. This top-down perspective reveals the Chinese LED light. If my memory serves me well it was a 38W E27 bulb for €45, which served its puropse in the beggining with not so delicate corals in the system. Eventually the bulb fell into the water. Reason being, I did not have a decent gooseneck tank mount at the time and it was mounted through a common lamp clamp. Nobody perished so that was nice. I dismantled it just to see the lenses and what is inside. There is a Ricordea mushroom on top of one of the live rock. This photo reminds me of one of those pictures in my favourite magazine Marine Aquarist from Yokohama, Japan (in my humble opinion the best mag on reefkeeping). Sometimes it is made without any additional lights, just the flash of the camera and even without it. Because of my interest in angelfishes I decided to buy this book by the great Kiyoshi Endoh. My first (Trachyphyllia geoffroyi). PART II This is the tank in about two years from its conception. Added an extra flow through a Sicce wavemaker, bought my first SPS corals - a Branched montipora, Stylophora pistillata Purple Milka, Acropora sp., Millepora sp., Pink and green Birdsnest, Green Symphyllia radians from Indonesia, various zoanthids, a second Green Trachyphyllia, a blue Tridacna squamosa, two mini carpet anemones, a Echinophyllia sp., two clown fish Amphiprion ocellaris sp., and a female Blue Star Leopard Wrasse (Macropharyngodon bipartitus) - another fish with great personality and behavior. A view of the glass stand with some of the products that I used at the time. The auxiliary plastic stand which is very convenient and easy to clean. For me cigars and reefkeeping go hand in hand. This Mandarinfish (Synchiropus splendidus) was eating artemia but did not survive. Acclimation. I never attached my corals to the live rock, which in my opinion is an interesting approach to reefkeeping, and I would relocate them from time to time. The Aiptasia-Eating Filefish (Acreichthys tomentosus) did a splendid work on erradicating the pest anemone and nowadays he is so lazy I barely see him picking at them. PART III
  7. FTS: 5th May 2018 Hi all 😁 Thought I'd start a thread to share the progress of my nsw IM fusion 20 reef tank. I've recently upgraded from a aqua one nanoreef 35 that had been running for 3+yrs.

    Sea of D IM 20 Reef

    Hello there, Welcome to the Sea of D Yo NanoReef, hope you are all doing well today. My name is Dominic and my goal is to make this the most stunning nano reef I have ever seen, while documenting from day 1. I am primarily into breeding freshwater caridina shrimp and keeping oddball fish. Fiend for the exotic.  Hardware: Innovative Marine 20 NUVO Fusion Sicce 1.0 Return Pump 1 CustomCaddy Media-Basket Reef Glass Protein Skimmer w/ Tetra 20 pump Tunze Osmolator 3152 ATO Aqueon Heater Jebao PP-4 Wavemaker AI Prime HD with Mount  Everything Else: 20 pounds Special Grade Arag-Alive by Caribsea 14.1 pounds of Real Reef Live Rock Seachem Matrix Seachem Purigen Filter Floss TwoLittleFishies Nano-Magnet Generic 20 gallon Amazon stand Generic Amazon Digital Thermometer  LiveStock: 3 Red Hermit Crabs from LFS  I will just go down the line and comment on what I need to. I was originally going to go with the IM 10 after being inspired by the thread on here but after a little research I quickly changed my mind. I wanted a respectable light that I could work from my phone. Most options I was looking at gave a 24 inch spectrum which is essentially wasted on the 12 inch IM 10 imo. For an extra 100 dollars I doubled my space and more efficiently utilized my hardware, no brainer there. I forgot that when I upgraded that I can get 2 media baskets so I basically just forgot the other one. I have recently found a new air pump as well I will probably end up using for the skimmer.The tetra can be loud when not wrapped in a shirt which looks like ass. Heaters are pretty meh to me as long as they do not break. There is a adjustment dial that I correspond with the digital thermometer for temperature. It has numbers on the dial but we all know how that goes. As for the PP-4 I have no idea what to mode to put it on. Right now I have it on wave-1 and the dial turned a little under half, it has my water rocking back and forth softly. Please assist me on that front if possible. The other big question mark I have is what to set my AI Prime HD at. I just asked the AI Prime facebook group but if someone out there with this tank help me out that would be king.  I saw so many debates on substrate I decided to not beat myself up about it and just get something solid. Hopefully this fits the bill. Luckily my LFS carries Real Reef Live Rock so I got to pick and choose and even set up my scape there. The Matrix is basically just going to fill the empty caddy once I get it and act as additional surface area for the long term. I am a little concerned about when the purigen will go bad and how I will know but that will be in the air whether it returns. I ordered chemipure blue right as amazon ran out so I am still debating whether I should refill that void, let me know if you think it is worth it. I like the tiny scrubber of the two little fishies magnet and the fact that it isn't made out of the same plastic as a 1993 mac like nano-mags really tipped the scale. Also one of these hermits does not look particularly red except for maybe his knees, felt worth noting.  As far as future goes I have plans on getting those spinstreams, the new air pump, and another light. When it comes to future livestock I have some ideas but have nothing set in stone so we will just have to see where the road takes us. If you follow along I will be doing my best to keep you entertained and updated through the trials and tribulations of the Sea of D.       Day 2 as I didn't get everything cleaned up after such a long day 1. Truly day 1`
  9. I am going to setup a fowlr tank in my 20 gallon hexagon. But I would like to find something decent for a lighting unit. I dont want to go crazy expensive because it is only a fowlr (~100 or less.) Or I could just get a bulb for the current hood I have; but I really dont know the type of bulb to look for. I want something that will be nice and bring out the colors in my fish and crow coralline if possible. ALSO Could I get a glass lid for it from somewhere??? I would like to do this, but dont know if anyone sells them anywhere at all.

    Phil's Fusion 20

    Hey everyone. This tank has been running just over a year and is doing pretty well, seems like the right time to do a build thread. Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 20 Ecotech Radion XR30 (Gen1) Ecotech Vortech MP10 Digital Aquatics RK Lite DA SL2 w/ Temp/PH/Salinity Probes IM Desktop Ghost Skimmer IM Hydrofill Ti ATO w/ Aqualifter Eheim Jager 50W Heater I have IM custom caddy's on both sides with floss, bags of carbon, and Seachem Matrix in that order. I've started dosing Red Sea Foundation A,B,C by hand Pics! 2/25/17 3/29/17 built a conduit light mount 04/13/17 05/13/17 I moved over the summer and it was pretty rough on the tank. I ended up battling high Nitrate and Phosphate and lots of algae for a few months afterwards. 09/08/17 10/31/17 I changed up stands PEAK ALGAE 02/23/18 Tank seems like it's back on autopilot now, Nitrates undetectable using Red Sea kits, Phosphate hovers between .05 and .10 You can see my two fish in this last one, a Tailspot Blenny in the middle and a Rainfords Goby hiding in the bottom left Thanks for looking!
  11. Hi everyone, here's a few first pics of my tank-swapped 20 gallon Waterbox next to my 5 gallon "floating" no-named nano tank. I'll be updating and posting new tank pics as I can on this thread, along with more info on the system as time goes on. Thanks for looking!
  12. Hey NR! feels good to finally post! I'm gonna skip some of the introductions and the "this is me and where I came from" background because I'm pretty boring, until I'm reefing. Then, like many of you, I am in the zone and I am (suddenly, and despite inevitable heart-aches) good at something that should be impossible to be good at   YOU, US, REEFERS in general... we are pretty awesome. We are REALLY awesome.  We are imaginative, resourceful, diligent, cunning, gifted as minimalists, hilarious over-thinkers and far too many of our reefing companions possess an actual instinct for suddenly absorbing enough chemistry, math, financial cleverness and electrical/mechanical daring to imitate Tony Stark and produce some truly outstanding works of functional,inspirational, art. Every single tank of the month that's posted makes me jealous, inspires me, pushes me towards more, and it feels good. Reefing on a budget is not an easy thing, but I'll be posting some tips and hints and success best practices on that later.  I do have a primitive motive for this puff piece - but even if I have some great photos or unique ideas, I wanted to publicly say that this community is one of the ONLY reasons I had the strength to come up with any of it. (Single tear sheds down bearded cheek)  SO enough of that. Some pics of The First Tank!  A couple of years ago, the beginning was an abused 20 gallon long. That poor tank. I learned enough to know that I needed much more practice, patience, and research, but that stupid thing was so much fun to set up, I had to keep 'upgrading' it. We all know when the bug hits, and that was it. Pour some salt in a box of glass, and BOOM. Spark.  I'll be posting my tanks, upgrades, hacks, tributes, thanks, and all that nonsense regularly, and I will make them pic heavy and lighthearted.  Cheers to you, reefers.
  13. I purchased the 20 a while ago during the peninsula sale on BRS. I've been stalking everyone's tank builds trying to figure out my equipment and waiting on sales before purchasing. Also, I've been waiting on my gorgeous stand to be made. It's super shiny, and I am impressed with the job. From the start, I decided I wanted this to be a rock flower garden. I fell in love with those anemones after my mother won one on Halloween last year at a LFS costume party raffle event. I eventually decided on the following: 20 gallon IM peninsula kessil a160(with gooseneck and 90 degree adapter) Aquean 100 watt heater IM custom caddy for filter media IM ghost skimmer Dry Fiji rock from BRS upgraded the stock pump to an Eheim 1000 Smart ATO Micro MP10 Vortech with a small Jebao to supplement Mix of crushed coral and fine sand Livestock: 4 RFAs 2 frags of zoas 3 snails Polyps my dad snuck in while I was gone a weekend Plan: Whatever I steal/frag from The Beast (my 265 DT). I still plan to have at least 10-15 RFAs. Day 1:
