  1. Here is a video I made unboxing the fluval evo 12 if anyone is interested. I made the video over a year ago when they first came out then I just left it in its box and barely started it up in September. I will be posting another video soon of me setting up the tank once I get my computer fixed. Hope everyone likes it ☺️
  2. Hello All, Join me on keeping a journal of my small glass box of paradise. My goal is for a mixed reef consisting of soft, LPS and some SPS coral.

  6. Hey everyone, I've been looking into this off and on for a while since I built this tank, but I can't seem to come to a head on which lighting would be best for me. I did skim through the led lighting section for similar tanks and looked at product details but they did not really tell me anything I needed to make a definitive decision.(they actually made me have more questions than solve) I have a 24" x 14" x 15" ~22g tank I built when I upgraded from a 10g a few months ago. without the back sump, the tank is 24" x 14" x 12" I think these dimensions are very similar to a IM nuvo 20g if im not wrong. My current lighting is two 20" finnex stingrays set to 9 hrs per day, I dont know if this lighting is really considered sufficient since at least in the FW side, it is considered a low-medium light with a par of around 30 I believe(par at the bottom of tank 14"). Well I thought I could find a light by looking at what people are using on their nuvo 20g tanks, and there seems to be a few options From what I've seen the options are; kessil a160 tuna blue 2 kessil a80 tuna blue AI Prime 24-36" current orbit marine My corals I currently keep are an acan, blasto, xenia, GSP, ricordia, and few zoanthids. afaik this is considered a mixed reef, I plan to shoot for a possible birds nest seriatoporia coral in the highest part of my tank, and/or possibly some sort of frogspawn/hammer. I would like to keep my options open so if possible I can use low-high lighting. another bit to add to this, but I notice at least with SW lighting, theres not really much attention given to red LED specifically 660nm part of the spectrum, is there any reason for this? In FW there is usually red added to the LED array for the second usable section of light by plants(440nm being the first and 660nm being the second) I dont quite understand the imbalance, do corals not use this? anyways, Any recommendations, experiences, or advice will be extremely helpful as Im still wrapping my head on this after quite a long time at looking at it. here is a pic of my tank for reference, and again thanks for anyone who can help or reply.
  7. Imagitarium 3.7

    I recently got a cheap tank at petco that I thought might be fun to mod, the 3.7 gallon imagitarium PRO delux. I drilled the false wall and fitted it with a bulkhead and some loc-line, replaced the stock pump, painted the sump section, and replaced the stock filtration with a filter sock and some chemipure blue. Display: Imagitarium PRO Delux Aquarium, 3.7-gallon Lighting: ABI 12W Tuna Blue LED bulb in some cheap desk lamp Filtration: Filter Sock and Chemipure Blue Heater: none so far, seeing how much heat my pump puts out Circulation: Eheim 600 Compact Pump Rock: BRS Reefsaver Sand: CaribSea Arag-Alive Future Projects/Equipment HOB Aquaclear Refugium Reef Glass Nano Protein Skimmer some kind of gravity fed ATO Stocking Plan changes weekly (if not daily)
  8. Hey reefers!! I'm headed down the chaeto route and I'm looking for suggestions on an LED for healthy growing a Billiard size chaeto ball in a media basket on my all in one. I see the JBJ and IM options. Can I get away with less than $60 refugium light or are these the best options. Clearly these are just little fixtures with 4 leds, seeming like a 6500k intensity. I don't need it to come with a magnet as I'm just going to tape it to the outside of the aquarium. Are there any DIY battery powered "tap" lights or regular soft yellow leds that will keep the chaeto alive? It's hard to find a small enough one however I see this one on Amazon that seems like it would work but a reviewer said it wasn't helpful and killed off his chaeto. The space in the media basket is one approx. 4"x3" I'm thinking I won't need a specific intensity. Thoughts and suggestions welcome

  11. Hooded AIO Getting Hot

    Any suggestions for keeping my hooded biocube cool this summer? I noticed it started getting warm yesterday (normally 79) it was 81.7 (it was 33 outside). I never thought it would be an issue since it's in the basement but there's no AC down there. I lifted the hood last night to allow more air exchange cooling through the night and it was back down to 79. But by the time I left for work it was creeping up again. Since I have a hood is it a bad idea to leave it open at night and closed during the day causing constant fluctuations? Any thoughts?
  12. Really want to add a skimmer to 17g AIO tank for some extra nutrient export. I know it's not necessary as I do a 5 gallon water change every week but it would be nice to just keep things extra clean and give me a extra day or two of wiggle room between water changes. Currently I only run floss and chemipure blue in a eggcrate media rack in the first chamber. I have an ATO so my water level is constant. My tank has three chambers in the back. The middle chamber I want to put the skimmer in is 2.5" wide by 5.5" long and 15" tall. I've been considering the Eshopps nano skimmer as I think it will fit. Or an air stone skimmer like the mame or reef glass. Any recommendations or skimmers I might be missing that would fit? Not it a big fan of HOB but I might consider it.
