  1. Howdy all I've been out of the reef hobby for about 10 years (high tech planted tanks have kept me busy and in touch with newer tech, I run Kessil tuna suns and vortechs). My fiancé saw a frag tank while we were getting Plants for one of my tanks and said we need one of those. Long story short after looking for a tank she liked we stumbled on the ADA 60f which she thought was perfect. I ended up ordering the ALA version which has the same dimensions. My last reef was a 14g biocube with power compacts, I kept monti's, acro frags and zoas in it but had to tear it down due to a job that had me on the road a month at a time. Any suggestions for this build are appreciated as I'm sure techniques have changed some in the last 10 years and since this is going to be my fiancés tank I would like to make it successful and fairly user friendly so she will be supportive of me getting a larger tank in the future current specs Tank: ALA 60s (same as a ADA 60f) 23.5" x 11.5" x 7.1" tall - 8.6 gal Overflow/Return: drilled glass holes nano overflow and drilled return Return Pump: need suggestions (I'd prefer low flow through the sump) Sump: 10g aquarium with a refugium baffle system installed (got it off eBay) it also has a holder for a 4" sock. Water movement: mp10 Lighting: SB reef 16" wifi Refugium lighting: need suggestions (considering a Kessil h80 but am open to cheaper options) Controller: Reefkeeper lite with temp probe and 2 power strips (will add ph eventually and the net module) Tank plans bare bottom live rock islands Zoas and LPS to start then SPS after the tank matures (want to start everything as frags to let them grow into the tank since it is small) minimal fish (1-2) must not be known for jumping lol clean up crew refugium with sand, live rock and cheato let me know if I'm missing anything or should go a different route, the tank is arriving today and I will be drilling and setting up the sump this weekend. Thanks in advance Len

    Acro ID?

    Picked up my first acro over the weekend and LFS wasn’t sure on exact ID. Appreciate any help identifying! White at the base is super glue & from earlier today under more whites than blues:
  3. Some of you guys may recognize my old build thread, and remember that I was contemplating changing my system to a Reefer 170. I ended up going a different route, settling on a Ultum Nature Systems 60U. I've spent the past few weeks assembling a stand, building a new sump (with a frag compartment), and figuring out how to incorporate a doser system into my tank. I unfortunately suffered some coral STN/die-off after a huge bacterial bloom halfway into working on my new stand, but fortunately the bloom resolved and the corals are slowly recovering. Accidentally broke Mame, picked up ELOS MIDI as current tank. Stand: (45Lx24Wx30H) Assembled from 2x Ikea SEKTION Cabinets (Veddinge White) with Birch-White Washed Butcher Block Tank: Ultum Nature System 60U (~24x14x14) with frosted background ELOS MIDI Flow: -2 MP10s on Long Pulse Mode Sump: Repurposed Mr. Aqua 11.4G -Ice-Cap K250 -Sicce 2.0 Return Pump -Innovative Marine Desktop Reactor (80ml Carbon) -Tunze Nano ATO Frag Tank: De-rimmed 6Gallon Fluval Edge -El cheapo return pump and powerhead Lighting: -ATI 4x24W Powermodule: 2C+, 1B+, 1 Giesemann Super Purple -Nanobox Duo for Frag Tank (100% Blue, 33% White) -Nanobox Mini for Chaeto/Refugium (100% Blue, 30% White) Dosing: -Marine Magic Doser CoralBox Wifi Doser with Aquaforest Component 1, 2, 3 Tank: Reefer 170 Sump: Reefer 170 Sump Flow: 4 MP10s Filtration: Ice-Cap K250 Skimmer: Only on 8 hours a day Skimz Chaeto Reactor MBR127: 12 hour photoperiod Purigen Bag - Passive Filtration Live Rock Seachem Matrix Rubble Lighting: Nanobox-ATI Hybrid. 4x T5 bulbs and 4x NBR Arrays Doser: Coralbox Wifi 4 Headed Doser with the following liquids dosed throughout the day ATI Essentials Pro 1 & 2 EasyBooster Phyto NYOS Goldpods and NYOS Chromys Maintenance: Thanks to the NYOS Goldpods and NYOS Chromys, I no longer manually feed my tank. I've been autofeeding the tank with calanus and mysis for the past 3 months without issue. My main maintenance is to clean off the glass (every 1-2 days), empty the skimmer cup (every 1-2 weeks) and trim chaeto (every month or so). Otherwise, I just have to refill the ATO and replace the dosing solutions when they get low. The system is super low maintenance. Without further ado, here are the pictures: 5/11/2019 3/13/2018 1/21/2018 11/25/2017 Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr 11/8/2017 10/29/2017 Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr 10/24/2017 Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr 10/15/2017 IMG_1284 by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr IMG_1283 by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr IMG_1288 by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr

    Coral skeleton ID

    Ok guys and gals, I bought this nice coral skeleton off ebay and as far as I know of its in the acropora family but i'd like to know exactly it's full scientific name. Any help would be Very much appreciated!
  5. I've been on the periphery of the hobby for over a year now. As soon as I stumbled into it I was hooked. The combination of science, art, and living pets inspired me deeply. I instantly went from not even knowing about the hobby to suddenly wanting to know everything! To make sure I didn't jump into anything to hastily I gave myself a solid year to seriously contemplate things and do my homework. I mean seriously doing my research, not just masturbating to coral porn. Build a 10g Nano Reef for JUST $275 Then a few months ago I saw a YouTube video from Marine Depot that was something like, "Build a Nano Reef for just $275." They built a bare-bones system with an IM Fusion 10 that would probably be fine for the easiest softies. I don't care for softies. I know everyone starts with them, but I'm just not even interested in bothering. My favorite corals are Montipora (digitata) and Acropora (vermiculata, tenuis). I like a lot of LPS too. Zoas are the closest thing to soft corals that I have any interest in, but even they would languish under their light. But this Marine Depot build got me thinking about getting off the fence. I loved the form factor of the Nuvo 10, since that would fit perfectly next to my desk. So let's do it right, and start by adding a zero to the budget. Build a 10g Nano Reef for JUST $2,750 I despise conspicuous consumption so please do not take me for some rich kid showing off. I'm a grown man who will make rational investments for personal edification. See that shit? I just used "edification" correctly in a sentence. Grown man! If I want to learn to keep SPS, I need to make the investment in keeping these critters alive and healthy. So forget all that piddly nonsense Marine Depot was trying to sling, here is the package I put together: Hardware Tank: IM Fusion Nano 10 Lighting: Kessil A80 (I was tempted by the Nanobox Lights popular here, but this needs to be a silent build!) Skimmer: IM Ghost Skimmer Return: Sicce Syncra Silent Main Powerheaad: Aqamai KPS Controller: Neptune Apex 2016 Hardware Regrets The IM SpinStream nozzle was hugely unnecessary in this tank with a powerhead. And ****ING LOUD! Hardware Extravagances I wrestled for a solid week on whether or not I should get the Apex 2016; or any of the much cheaper options. I think it is over-priced by about $300, and I hate getting bilked. I want to keep this all as stress-free as possible, so I ultimately decided it would be an insurance policy for the tank and a sleep aid for me. The ORP is probably the only thing on here I won't use. I'm comfortable with coding and was instantly coming up with my own schemes in the controller. I also really like the features in the upgraded EB832 powerbar. With such a small water volume I need to know the second something fails. I really want to keep this hobby as stress free as possible. First Month I'm primarily going to be documenting my experiences on my YouTube channel, but I'll use this thread for supplemental stuff. If you like what you see, please subscribe! I'm nearing 5,000 subs and want to hit that milestone! Let's find out if a newbie can just show up and pull off a SPS Nano Tank if he's done his homework! August 2017 Update: I finally got to add corals to the tank this month! There were a lot of ups and downs along the way, but I'm still engaged in the hobby! September 2017 Update: Despite having no fish in my fish tank, I had a very eventful September in reefing! This video also includes reviews for the Aqamai KPS powerhead (an affordable programmable powerhead) as well the Seneye Reef ammonia & pH monitor. October 2017 Update: Things are doing great in the tank this month! No coral deaths! I didn't even lose a single Zoa polyp! My parameters are all stabilizing nicely. In this month's video I complete my review for the Seneye Reef Monitor, and talk about how I supplement with Kalkwasser and Vodka. November Update It's happening! It's all finally coming together for me. I've got the water chemistry stabilized to the point that I think I can start adding Acros to the tank! January 2018: The tank has been going for 6 months, and has managed to keep fish alive for the last 2 of those! I'm now out of the woods yet though and continue to have some challenges keeping the water chemistry stable in this 10 Gallon Nano!

    Myka's 10L Bubble Reef

    I have this Tank Journal posted up on a couple other sites, but figured I would share here too. Yesterday The Bubble turned 4 weeks old. I'll catch you all up... Posted Jan 27th: One of the local Facebook pages started up a "jar reef challenge". We're all taking our jar reefs to the local frag swap in April to show them off. I've wanted to do a pico reef for probably 10 years, and I figured why not now? Of course I am always up for a good challenge, and the first thing was finding a "jar" I liked the look of. I wanted something that was clear to look through, not wavy and distorted. I also really like how the 12-gallon IM Cylinder tank looks - the convex acrylic makes the livestock look a lot bigger than it is. My inspiration is from floating flower bowls:
  8. I'm trying to recoup some equipment costs, and am listing some frags for sale. I've made a similar listing to the local club forum, but I'm making a second listing here just in case there are reefers who are not a part of the club. I'm located in Iowa and am unfortunately not looking to ship any of these frags. If you're interested, pm me for more information and we can set up pickup arrangements.  Frags  1x PZ Prometheans colony with 50+ Polyps $200 -Taking Preorders for 3 Polyp ($20), and 10 polyp ($50) Frags as well!  1x Hawkins Echinata Frag $25  3x Hawkins Echinata Frags $7.50 each *Note, one frag plug also has a unnamed acropora*  1x Acropora Secale (1/2 inch) $5  2x Ultra Blue/Green Millepora $25 each  3x Green Montipora Digata: $10 each  Thanks for looking!

    Help! Acro fading from the bototom

    Help! Sorry, not a great pic. This has been doing well for over a month now. Was starting to encrust more, but started to kind of brown/white out on the bottom.. tissue is still there, just very faded. This has been getting worse very slowly over the last week or two. Any ideas? I used to feed reef roids and phyto every day, but started to do it less frequently.. could it be from lack of nutrients? I dose acropower as well. All other acros look fine, I have noticed my pink lemonade acro not looking quite as fuzzy as usual though.. Calc-430 Alk-9 (and steady) Nitrates- 0 or almost on api test kit.. Using a Coral Moon Box LED. I turned the light up a small amount before this started.. Any ideas? Thanks!

  13. Broke off what's probably less than a centimeter of Katropora on accident. Free. Pick Up Houston. Lineage direct from Metrokat. First PM gets it.
  14. So, I originally posted a similar thread on a different forum. I am in need of some help. I'm not sure what is going on with a few specific acroporas in my tank. Seemingly without changing anything about my reef, poly extension has been slowly degrading on a handful of acros. I'm not sure what has caused it. I've checked for pests, even at night with a flashlight. No bite marks or any sign of irritation of the tissue. The zooxanthellae is dense in all of the affected corals. Before we go any further, here is the obvious stuff: Display - 120 gallon Lighting - T5s (4 Blue+, 1 Coral+, 1 Purple+; 2 Blue+ are on for 10 hours - 2 Blue+, 1 Purple+, 1 Coral+ are on for 5 hours) Bulb order front to back is 2 Blue+, 1 Coral+, 1 Purple+, 2 Blue+ Flow - Two MP40s on anti-sync Reef Crest at 100% (24/7), return is a Vectra M1 on 75% Skimmer - Vertex Omega 150 (24/7) Refugium - Live rock, MarinePure block with chaeto lit opposite display lights Mechanical - 2 filter socks changed every 3-5 days Fish - 6 small fish Parameters from Tuesday (5/23)- Alkalinity - 8.4dKH- Calcium - 450ppm- PO4 - 0.00ppm- NO3 - less than 3ppm- Water temperature - 77.6F- Salinity - 1.026SG/35pptHere is my original thread with others' replies and more information that I might have over looked here in this post: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/sudden-rise-in-calcium-inhibit-polyp-extension.304677/#post-3776996 Please help. Even if its something super obvious or something you don't feel is worth posting, please post it. I really need advice as I am running out of ideas myself. Thanks, Evan
