KMitch posted a topic in Nano Reef JournalsHello N-R.com family, Last you heard from me I was building a Red Sea Reefer 50 gallon reef tank, but I had to break down the tank when I moved and only recently had a chance to set it back up. Rather than going back to the 50 gallon reef tank, however, I turned that into a planted freshwater discus tank. My first love in reefing came from a smaller nano tank, and I lost some of the love as the tanks got bigger and more complicated. I finally convinced the fiancee to let me start another tank, and settled on a nano reef for my return. So pull up a seat and follow along.... Over the course of the last 10 years, I've had a number of tanks with varied success, and I hope to put all the lessons learned from those tanks together in this build. Rules of the road: Simplicity is king. 15 pieces of equipment just create more opportunities for failure. I am going to do the basics, and I'm going to do them well. Some (light) SPS. I like some SPS Corals, and I might try a frag or two that amuse me, but this tank will go back to my love of LPS, softies, and (hopefully) a clam. Fun, active, and healthy. I want my reef to thrive, the inhabitants to be healthy, and to have a tank that I can get lost staring at for hours. I settled on this tank and equipment after hours upon hours of extensive reading and research. I've tried complex systems like algae scrubbers, CO2 reactors, etc.... now I'm going back to the more time tested and proven techniques. That's not to hate on any of the other stuff.... it just became too complicated and removed the fun. My tank in college was very simple, it thrived, and it was a blast. Time to return to that....though with a little nicer gear too 😉 Equipment: Innovative Marine NUVO Fusion Pro Peninsula 20 Gallon tank Kessil A360X light with wifi InTank media basket Aqamai KPS Wavemaker pump eShopps Nano Protein Skimmer ZeoVit dosing schedule Cobalt Aquatics Neotherm 75W heater Aqua Gadget Spin Stream Nozzle XP Aquatics Duetto ATO system Livestock: Pair of DaVinci Extreme Clowns Pair of Yasha Gobies Six Line Wrasse Pistol Shrimp Cleaner Shrimp Blue Maxima Clam Blue Porcelain Crabs (x3) Aussie Golden Eye Chalice Branching Cyphastera Green Acans Purple Favia Rainbow Acans Watermelon Acans Weeping Willow Toadstool Orange Ricordia Mushrooms Misc.

For filtration, I plan to run filter floss, carbon, and ZeoVit in the media basket. The hope is that I can talk my fiancee into setting up the tank at the end of our couch, so you can appreciate the full peninsula effect. Fingers crossed. I ordered everything from @BulkReefSupply this weekend and got notification that the gear will arrive Thursday, so pictures and more updates to come. I also need to build a stand for the tank, so it'll be a few weeks before we see water, but that's okay. Good planning leads to good results!
