    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
  2. Tank: RS Reefer 170 (~43g total) - Started 8/23/20 Lighting: GHL Mitras in 24" AL Hybrid Fixture Dosing: GHL Doser 2.1 Skimmer: Coral Box D300+ from Reefbreeders Circulation: 2x RS-M from Reefbreeders Return: Platinum DC Blue 800 Heater: 150w Jager w/Cobalt controller Supplements: BRS Two-Part + KZ Trace Elements Salt: RS Blue Bucket Rock: Tropic Eden Supreme Tonga Branches (10-12lbs) with AquaMaxx Reef Welder (Purple) Sand: CaribSea Fiji Pink (20lbs) Supporters (go check them out!): Reefbreeders + GHL USA Not on the forums much or just want pictures? Follow the tank on Instagram here! Water Change Counter: 0 Status: Ten frags in the tank (8 from BC). Starting to see some tiny growth (10/8). Premium Aquatics really hooked me up with nice tonga branches. I think the Tropic Eden rock is well worth the money and likely an underrated product! Inspiring tanks...

    40 gallon breeder build

    Hey all, this is my first post to this group and I'm hoping to get some help. I have kept freshwater fish for years and recently (a year ago) go a 20 long tank and started a reef. I love it, everything is thriving and I'm looking to upgrade to a 40 breeder (maybe a little bigger). Right now my 20 long has a HOB on it and I was wondering if I could get away with a HOB on a 40 gallon or would I need a sump? The filter I use and love is an Aquaclear 70 and I'd probably put an Aquaclear 110 on the 40. Also, any good info on stand builds for this size? I'd like to build my own so I can add magnetic border pieces for easy access underneath (If I did a sump). Thanks
  4. 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: Acrylic Sump 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..

    Afropenguin's Clown Tank

    Hi! This is my tank. I like it very much. I hope you like it too. This is my second saltwater tank. All pictures are taken with a pixel 2 with no gel filter and no editing (I'm too lazy to do any of that). Parameters: Salinity - 1.025 Calcium - 420 Alk - 7.9 Mag - 1320 Temperature - 77°F Nitrates - 10 Phosphates - 1 Equipment list: Tank: 40g Mode Aquarium 15g Sump (about 10g of water in there) Some heater Hydro Smart ATO Filtration: Reef Octopus Classic 110 Space Saver Skimmer 40Lbs Base rock ~20lbs live sand Bag of activated carbon BRS 6 STAGE DELUXE PLUS RO/DI SYSTEM Lighting: 2x AI Prime Circulation: Hydor Koralia 425 Jebao Return Pump Husbandry Schedule: 5 gallon water change once per week Fill ATO container once per 2-3 weeks (5g container) Clean glass / empty skimmer cup as needed Stocking List: Fish 10 Clown Fish Inverts 4 Trochus snails 1 Cerith Snail 1 Nassarius Snail 1 Blue Tuxedo Urchin 1 Fighting Conch Anemone 1 Green Haddoni Carpet Anemone 7 Bubble tip anemone 4 Rock flower anemone 1 Maxi-mini carpet anemone Coral 1 Orange plate coral - RIP Elegance coral 2 torch corals Some GSP Sun coral Red gorgonian Some acans Green Candy Cane Green Monti Cap - RIP Feeding: I usually just feed a blend of whatever I have to the clown fish and the leftovers get picked up by the NPS corals. I spot feed the anemones silverside once a week but will probably start feeding them squid since the clowns won't eat it. Lighting Schedule: Plan to add: Algae reactor Auto roller mat Replace lid with something else

    Bought a RO/DI & ATO

    https://www.amazon.com/Tunze-USA-3152-000-Automatic-Osmolator/dp/B00AR1A7ZU/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1523568226&sr=8-3-fkmr0&keywords=auto+top+off+saltwal https://www.amazon.com/LiquaGen-5-Stage-Reverse-Osmosis-Deionization/dp/B01FNAPGPA/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1523568372&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=liquagen&psc=1 Recently bought these 2 items off amazon for my 40G Nuvo, wondering if they were a good buy. The ATO seemed like a solid buy but im kinda iffy on the RO/DI filter.

    Need ATO for Nuvo 40G - RO/DI

    Hi everyone, I bought a Nuvo 40G last week and set it up and everything , Last night I did a water change and today I realized that im probably going to need a ATO just to make life easier, Im looking for something that's not going to break the bank, but works. Also, looking for a RO/DI setup, I want to connect it under my bathroom sink since I live in a condo I have no where else to put it and I cant connect it with my laundry but I also don't want to break the bank. Just need something that works... I checked google and I got tons of recommendations but not sure which one to get. Any recommendations would be great Thanks,
  8. I started a Biocube 29g in March and almost as soon as I had it setup I wanted something a little bigger. We've all been there I decided that a 40 breeder would be a good size in an apartment, and got to work getting the pieces together. I've gotten everything ready now except the tank itself ! Weighing a few final local options. I'm not in a rush so I want to do things right. I started cycling some old live rock that had been sitting dry in the heat for 6+ months. I placed it in a tub with 1.025 saltwater, a cobalt accutherm 250w, and maxijet 400. Dosed to ~10ppm ammonia (Trying it high again after my first tank cycle went so well). I probably should have washed the rock off but I'll do a 100% water transfer before putting it into the tank later on. Currently it has been cycling for 2 weeks. I tested a very small nitrite presence 2 days ago and did a 30% water change with 5g from my Biocube. Nitrites are now at .75 and rising. Once the ammonia is completely processed I'll do the 100% and redose a small amount until I have the tank I want. edit: tested this morning 10/08/17: What do the nitrates look like? I am partially colorblind and the purples are hard for me.

    IM NUVO 40 FROM GR

    Background My journey goes way back since i was very young. My father used to have a reef tank in our house which now has been transfered to his office . Its a sumpless tank because, hes has it for 17 years! so you can guess he had been struggling to get things in order with external filters etc. But this was until i decided to join the hobby . I did my research and helped him achieve what he always wanted. To grow corals of course ! Now i bought an im nuvo 40 for myself (those things are rare around here) which has been running for over a year but i have been dealing with it for 3 months because i was in the army for 9 months . Equipment Tank: IM nuvo 40 Return Pump: stock skimmer: Tunze 9004 Lights:ebay blackbox led it2040 Ato: tunze osmolator nano Eheim 150 watt heater Jebao rw4 Filtration gfo/carbon mix in sock Seachem matrix stones Livestock 2xClownfish 1X nassarius snail Corals montipora red montipora green favia palys/zoas not sure some mushrooms i get some brown-orange algae mostly on the back and front glass Last wc was last friday nitrates: 0 p04: 0
