    Natalia’s Evo 13.5: baby snails!

    Ok I’m officially back in nano land. I love my reefbowls but I really don’t need two. And they’re getting very crowded. And I miss fish and inverts. So I’m going to retire my 3-year-old sculpture bowl and put the corals in a brand new Fluval Evo 13.5. I thought a lot about other tanks like the Fusion Peninsula 14 or the Waterbox Peninsula Mini 15, that seem to have better build quality, low iron glass etc, but the shape of the Evo is just more attractive to me. It’s got that golden ratio thing going. The aim with this system is ultra low maintenance/ULM, which means mostly softies and LPS, macro and few water changes for nutrient export, only the most necessary tech, and a few fish. current status: Scape: 0.5” layer of aragonite flakes 13 lbs. Life Rock and dry rock Equipment/upgrades: Sicce Syncra 0.5 return pump VCA 1/2” Random Flow Generator Fluval M50 submersible heater Inkbird temp controller Custom ClearView lid (solid acrylic to control evap—hoping to avoid needing ATO) 12w ABI Tuna Blue par38 in a midcentury modern brass light fixture InTank media baskets for chambers 1 and 2 Kamoer X1 bluetooth doser AA Green Killing Machine 9w UV sterilizer (at night as needed) Filtration: Floss ROX Carbon Macroalgae Fish & inverts: 1 azure damsel (Caligula) 1 orchid dottyback (Caracalla) 2 trochus snails 2 astrea snails 5 strombus maculatus snails 2 nassarius snails 3 stomatella snails 1 money cowrie 1 blue leg hermit crab 1 porcelain crab 1 harlequin serpent star asterina stars feather duster worms Corals Zoanthids Goniopora Euphyllia Nephthea Acans Duncan Ricordea Rhodactis Leptoseris Cyphastrea Macro: Red ogo (gracilaria parvispora) Gracilaria hayi Dragons tongue (halymenia durvillei) Feeding daily or every other day: Rods Food Coral Blend Rods Polyp Popper fish roe Avast Reef Jerky Feeding weekly: Reef Roids Goniopower Coral Frenzy Fauna Marin Ultra Ricordea + Zoanthus Fauna Marin Ultra Min D Dosing daily: Tropic Marin All-for-Reef 1.2 ml Joeys Reef Juice 4-species live phyto blend 7 ml Brightwell Coral Aminos 7 drops aand it’s wet! Added Aquavitro Seed to start the cycle.
  2. Well, well. Here we go again. I started the Lifegard Aquatics Crystal Aquarium AIO Clubs. I figured why not one for FIJICUBE AIO owners or prospective owners. Since it hasn't been one yet, I say we get this show started! Checkout https://www.fijicube.com there are a couple options as far AIO tanks go. I'll do what I did on the last thread and make a compiled list of links to member's tanks on this page, as a reference to anyone interested in these systems. Let's get this party started. And as always, feel free to discuss your ideas, builds, etc. Lets get rolling !. Please also check out the Lifegard Aquatics AIO club as well! We've begun to gain some serious track there! I look forward to seeing this thread going. Happy reefing! - Reefahbarra84 PS, this is what I've got lined up 😉
  3. Intro Hey everyone, I've done freshwater tanks for the past few years but this is my first foray into saltwater. My fiancée's father has a 120g that piqued my interest and the ongoing pandemic convinced me to pull the trigger on a new project. After considering my options, I went with the Biocube 16g for a few reasons: 1) I like the dimensions and I want to use the additional vertical space compared to other nano tanks; 2) I plan to use the stock LEDs and it seems the consensus on the forums is the presence of the hood minimizes evap so I don't need an ATO system, both of which helped me keep the cost of the tank down, and 3) it was slightly bigger than other nano options and I felt that would expand my livestock options. Just got everything set up and took a quick picture, planning to start cycling very soon. Specs Tank: Biocube 16 gallon Salt Mix: Fritz Reef Pro Mix Sand: Caribsea Aragamax Select Lighting: Stock LED hood Powerhead: Jebao OW-10 Wave Maker When I first put this into the tank it was definitely running louder than expected. I took it out, disassembled it, and just put it back together to see if that would help align things. Worth it, put it back it and it's been super quiet. Now I just have to get the right angle/power combo so it's not pushing the sand out of the corners! Heater: BRS 100w heater (chamber 1) Biological Filtration: ~1/2 liter Seachem Matrix (chamber 3) Chemical Filtration: Chemipure Blue (chamber 2) Mechanical Filtration: Poly Filter (chamber 2) Tank Modifications: removed false bottom in chamber 1; expanded chamber 1 overflow cutout I struggled with removing the false bottom, my recommendation would be to hook something like big curved scaping tweezers in the gap by the back-right corner; you can pop it out with some upward force, then pull it out with the tweezers. I first tried pulling the rails out, which not only did not release the false bottom but also scattered bits of plastic in the bottom of chamber 1, which I then had to pick out of the sand once I started filling the tank. Do not recommend. I also struggled to expand the overflow cutout without demolishing the whole thing. I ended up using wirecutters to make a vertical cut along the side, then a second horizontal cut toward the bottom to cleanly cut the piece off. While this worked better than I expected (after a few attempts), make sure your circulation isn't running when you do this, as I had the plastic go into the second chamber. Luckily it just landed on my filter floss so it was easy to remove.

    13g AIO Zoa Garden

    Setting up my 13g AIO tank again Equipment: -13g AIO. (I was told by a member on here a few years ago that it was Aquamedic prototype, but I’m not sure) -For now an Aqua Knight LED light my dad had laying around. I will be upgrading soon. -Sicce .5 return pump -Jebao SLW-10 -Pacific Coast Nano Skimmer -75 watt Eheim Jager -Aquatic Life RODI unit. I’ve always wanted to have a zoa garden, so that’s what plan to do with it this time. Possibly a photosynthetic gorgonian. Would like to put in a goby/shrimp pair, but also considering going bare bottom. Any fish recommendations for a bare bottom nano?

    (Video) Small All in one (AIO) aquarium

    Hello Reefers, I wanted to share how I built my aquarium3 years ago, I wasn't a Youtuber at that time but for some reasons I filmed most of the process and I wanted to share my experience with you. This built work flawlessly, can't complain much about the design, it works, but I'm always looking for improvement, I'm finishing another design, I experiment a little bit with the flow (for a frag tank). So this is part 1, wasn't sure if it's a good idea to split the video but there's so much to talk about, hope you like:
  6. Hello everyone, its me Hammerlover. Although cookie jar reefing is a joy and great experience for me, I wanted a fairly "bigger" setup where I can keep more shrimps, crabs and snails which i cant in my pico jar because only very few and small shrimps/crabs are allowed (they can irritate the corals, or even die in starvation). So after reading the thread of the legendary pico reefer, El Fabuloso and seeing Sandeep's awesome AIO pico tanks I decided to plunge myself into this new journey and start myself this new project! ---TANK SPECS--- * 5 gallon standard tank modded to a 5 gallons AIO setup (4 gallons DT and 1 gallon sump) * Pump rated for 10 gallons as return pump * Sand from beach (washed twice and sundried for a week, then washed again before using) * 3 kg of liverocks fresh from the sea (My LR has amazing worms, pods and tiny feather dusters plus a hint of coralline algae) * DIY LED lights by Sir Florencio * Polyfilter (from my 12 gal fowlr), TGR HPP (local version of Seachem Matrix) and some liverock rubble for the sump. There is another section where Im planning to add some macros soon * DIY gravity fed ATO from my dog's old water dispenser inspired by Nano Sapiens So here is the obligatory cloudy shot The tank after one day, it cleared up nicely but my phone cam is way too crappy it still doesnt look nice ignore the reflection of my face, the gate and our car A top view of my sump, the green plastic thing is my DIY ATO A closeup of my LED lights. Its nice how the violet and blues mix together ---PLANS--- -longevity, regular cleaning of my sandbed, sump and medias is a must! -turn this setup into a mixed reef (softies, some lps and sps) -lots of shrimps and crabs -Keep It Simple -Have a fully stocked reef even in a budget Thanks for stopping by, and I hope this setup and new journey will be a new adventure for me. ~Aaron
