    Bay Area Nuvo 10

    Hi all, and hi to the Nuvo 10 community! For the past year or so, I've been wanting a reef of my own, and I'm now addicted. I decided on the Innovative Marine Nuvo 10 for the compact size and transportability, given that I plan to take it to college eventually. As of the moment I am writing this, I currently have put the rock and sand into the tank, after cycling the rock for about 3 weeks in a 5-gallon bucket using Fritz Turbo Start. The sand is Fiji Pink, and the rocks are Walt Smith 2.1. I have the tank on the 10 gallon white JBJ Nano Cubey Stand, which looks really great with the tank. Equipment List IM Nuvo 10 Tank 10 Gallon White JBJ Nano Cubey Stand AI Prime HD (modded AB+ settings) Cobalt Neo-Therm 50 watt heater (best heater on the market) Sicce Syncra .5 Return Pump Vortech mp10wqd inTank Media Basket (Running inTank filter floss, 2 chemi pure blue nano packets, and 1 marinepure cube) Tunze Nano ATO (Not planning on running a skimmer, I'm running 4 MarinePure cubes in the second chamber) Aquatic Life 100gpd RODI unit Tropic Marin Pro Reef salt (mixes extremely fast) Tank as of August 16, 2019. No light or ATO yet.

    Acans Dead?

    The other day I fed and did a water change and my acans and frogspawn were staying closed up. I left for work and care back and my acans were shriveled up and covered in slime. Now it looks like it is dead to the skeleton in some spots. Does anyone have any ideas what could have happened? Everything else is doing fine and they’re not close enough to anything dangerous. My guess is that the feeding mucous from the frogspawn could’ve stung it. I hope it can still come back 😔

    BioCube 16g at 16 months!

    I started my BioCube on February 26, 2018. Although I have had numerous saltwater tanks, this is my first attempt at a reef tank. In the first chamber, I have a Cobalt Neo-Therm and a sack Boyd's Chemi-Pure Elite. The second chamber has an InTank media basket, replacing the bio-balls with MarinePure Media Spheres. The third chamber houses a Cobalt Aquatics MJ Pump. To increase circulation I uses a Hydor Korailia Evolution Nano 240. Finally, on November 24, 2018, I removed the hood and added a Kessil A160WE Tuna Blue. My BioCube is still a work in progress. I am very much open to any and all suggestions.

    Parasite on my acans?? Help? (Pictures)

    I dont know what this is but it seems to be growing or living on the side of my acans. Will it hurt them?? Ignore my serpent star. It seems to have two tentacles/antennae?
  5. I bought this three-headed frag of acans 2 days ago. They seemed pretty happy until now. I even fed them some frozen mysis last night. but there was always this one corner that seemed to be releasing a little bit of slime into the water. That'ss what corals do when they've recently been disturbed and moved" I said to myself, and I assumed it would just wash away. Then today I got back from work and found that corner oozing lots of slime and can see some exposed skeleton! the other heads seem very happy; no recession as far as I can tell. And even the oozing head seems happy besides. But something is clearly wrong. Did I tear the polyp pacing it in the tank? Is it infected? can I blame this on water chemistry and lighting? I need a diagnosis and I feel like I need to act fast based on how suddenly this injury appeared.

  8. Started this tank on March 30, 2017 with stock pump and filter sock, koralia nano from previous tank, and 5 lb of LR, and about 8.5 gallons of saltwater to start. The tank is almost a year old now and some upgrades have happened.

LOL -Side plant is one of 3 succulents I got at a baby shower and decided to try to grow it under the XR-15 instead of my bedroom window lol, so if they switch out ever that why. Let me know if you have any thoughts on the tank! Plan on upgrading to a Lagoon 25 at some point this year I hope!

    Coral recessing

    Hey guys not sure what’s up but some of my corals look like they’ve been getting munched on (at the base of my Duncan’s for example), and acans receeding and lost one. I have no fish on my tank. I have 3 nassarius snails, 2 reg snails. The only thing moving about are copepods. There are a bunch of them in the tank as nothing eats em. In the tank is Purple tipped frogspawn, Acans, rock nem, Aussie Duncan, Duncan’s, 3 baby scolys, baby clam and a mushroom I just picked up (noticed The base of corals before adding the mushroom). I dip everything in Coral Rx multiple times. I am going to put both affected corals in some seachem revive tonight for about 10-15 min. Then put the scolys, shroom in a diff container and use rx on em (newer). sat another dipping? When I do my Dipping rn I will be taking out some sand bcs I eventually want to go bare bottom so I can see anything unusual. Stats: 78 F, 1.025, 8.5 dKH, 400-420 Ca, 1350-1400 Mg, P04 0.03-0.1. Dose daily and feed 1-2x per week never had any problems with anything. Super confused. Thanks for any help!

    Acan species only tank

    Hi, I would love to set up a acan only reef tank that is 10 gallons or less.. ideally I would like an AIO tank.. also if it has a kit that comes with a light to happily support a variety of acans that would be great! If not some affordable light recommendations that would be compatible with the tank would be awesome! I would like to do no modifications to the tank and I was think maybe a cadlight 8 gallon or IM nuvo fusion 10 but have heard mixed options about both and the IM supposivly needs many modifications to get it up and running. Thanks and let me know
  11. Hello all, I currently have 2 acans (micromussa) in my young tank. They are doing well, all puffy and fleshy, and in the morning before the light switch on, I can see some tiny feeding tentacles coming out of them. Right now, they are on the sand bed, but the epoxy that I ordered will arrive soon and I am planning on gluing them to the rock. The exact position will be really close to where they currently are, around 2 cm from their current position on the sand bed. It will be towards the bottom of the tank. I know they are aggressive and can puke out their guts to digest their neighbors. But, are they aggressive towards fellow acans? Do brothers fight?

    Nuvo X reef

  13. Hi, I've seen videos were lobos and scolys lye next to each other and I really like the color contrast but in my experience, whenever closer, these corals attack each other. In two separate occasions my snails or fish had pushed an acan and a trachy next to a lobo and the lobo has digested part of those corals tissues. I've lost a piece of the acan and a big chunk of the trachy's head. For now, I've placed epoxy rings to prevent them for touching each other. Is it just this single lobo that is so aggresive? or should I definitively maintain a good distance beetween all of these corals? PD: in the pictures, the circular purple/green piece is the killer. The other two are its victims. Thanks
