    SaltyTank's 40G Mixed Reef

    Hello & welcome to my new reef journal! I’m a SoCal nano-reef enthusiast that’s been in the hobby 4 years, and I’m finally committing myself to starting this journal – mostly for my benefit, not yours😊 No seriously though, I need help holding my bad habits in check and hoping you will all help me achieve my goal. My goal is that 1 year from now my 40-gallon mixed-reef tank will be a living masterpiece, and so appealing to me that I will have no impulses to stick my hands in the water to move/add anything. That said, here’s some more background and visionary objectives: SETUP: Tank: 40-Gallon Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion (24” x 20” x 19”) Lighting: Radion XR15w Gen-4 Circulation: (1) IM stock return pump w/2 spin stream nozzles; and (2) Icecap 1k Gyre Heater: None (controlled room temp) Cooling: Desktop fan controlled by Inkbird thermostat/temp controller Mechanical Filtration: (1) Aquamaxx HOB 1.5 skimmer; (2) filter floss Bio Filtration: (1) RealReef dry rock; (2) Caribsea sand; (3) CerMedia Marinepure biofilter balls Chemi Filtration: RedSea carbon Top Off: Tunze Osmolator 3155 Dosing: manually, Brightwell Reef Code A + B & magnesium BACKGROUND: I’m a middle aged father whom loves to drink red wine while staring up-close at my fish tank excessively. I grew up by the ocean and first fell in love with tropical fish & corals when I got scuba certified in Indonesia circa 2000. Since then I’ve done many dives around the world and find myself more interested in biodiverse macro reef-scapes than shipwrecks and cageless bull shark feedings. Also, I’m a photo enthusiast and art aficionado, which I aim to incorporate into my reef keeping. My wife gifted me my first tank about 4 years ago (a 6-gallon JBJ AOI), and pretty sure it’s her biggest regret of our long-standing relationship. I'm now about 1 year into the current setup. VISION: If I were shrunk down to be a little 2 inch scuba diver and my wife threw me into my tank, I want to be surrounded by colors, contrasts, textures, movement, and dimension. I’ll want to swim down, up, around, through, under, and over copious amounts of corals, and be accompanied by a few fish friends that will join me without fearing they’ll bully or eat me. OBJECTIVES: Over the next 12 months, I’ll try to post progress updates every 1-2 weeks. Additionally, I’ll try to engage you all into helping me fill in the holes with new coral suggestions. Since I like to go to the local LFS’s frequently, maybe together we can make this an interactive team effort - although, let me try not to get ahead of myself here. So for now I’ll share some relevant pics and focus on following through with a 2nd post sometime soon. P.S. I have a lot of bad habits to work on... - hands in the tank frequently - impatiently making changes, expecting expedited results - providing poor instructions for friends to care for tank while on vacation - overfeeding and then underfeeding - vindictively taking vengeance on hungry hermits that snatch food from feeding acans

    Aqueon 40 Gallon Long

    Has anyone set up an Aqueon 40 gallon long? Dimensions are 48.25" x 12.75" x 16.875" I’ve recently discovered this new tank on their website as I’m looking to set up a low, long tank for my frogfish as he grows. Here is his current setup. 12” cube plumbed to our 60 cube with huge sump.
  3. I’ve been sitting against the wall staring at my 40 gallon breeder aquarium, and the thought popped into my head, how about Saltwater? I understand that the chemistry is vastly different, and I’m very experienced with freshwater, however saltwater intimidates me. My question is would it be possibly to turn this 40 gallon GLASS not ACRYLIC into a good saltwater aquarium, any information/suggestions would help, but my knowledge on saltwater is limited. I don’t not wish to heavily stock this aquarium because I understand that these creatures are delicate and require a more in depth knowledge.
  4. 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.
