    20g AIO DIY Peninsula

    Alright so here goes the ultimate adventure! Transfering my 15g tall to the new 20g Long I put together. Shout out to Cromag who cut the acrylic I needed for this project. 3 Years ago... 11/22/20 - Orphek 15,000k filter

    Jack's 10 year old 20g Tall

    In the last 4 years, my 20g tank has logged more than 2,000 miles in 5 different moves, has visited 8 different states, and two of those moves were half way across the country. Needless to say, this has taken quite a toll on the tank. It's been up and running in some state for some eight years now, and finally has a permanent home now that we've bought a house. With any luck, things will flourish, uninterrupted. SPS have been back in the tank a few months now and am hoping I won't have to sell them off and move again like I usually have to do! Equipment: Tank: Standard Petco $20 20g Tall - 24x12x16. Lighting: Radion XR30 Pro (G1) with upgraded wide-angle lenses @ 45% (Schedule: https://pastebin.com/c1PYMT4y) Flow: 1x MP10 and return pump @ 100% in Yellow Mode Sump: DIY 10g Standard Petco $10 10g - 20x10x12 with 2 chambers Skimmer: Bubble Magus C3.5, offline for months and my coral is loving the extra delicious organics ATO: Avast Marine with Aqualifter Temperature: Ranco 111000 Inkbird Controller connected to old titanium heater Overflow: HOB CPR CS50 with Aqualifter siphon and DIY float valve relay on return to prevent accidents Dosing: 1/4 - 1/3 gallon of 27.5% 42% saturated Kalk in RODI per day. Keeps Alk between 8.4 and 9.2 over the course of about 20 days., between 6 and 7 to slow down growth to make it manageable. Live Stock: Fish: 2x Percula Clowns and one Hoeven's/Melanurus Wrasse Coral: Acros, Montis, Acans, Favia, Stylo, Birdsnest, Merulina, Blastos, Chalice, Platygyra, Ricordea, Zoas, Palys Nems: Two RBTAs (mother and baby), 2x Mini-Maxis Everything has been set up for ease of maintenance and being able to run for a week if I'm travelling since the amount of time I have to dedicate to my reef comes and goes - after 8 years, I just want it to be as simple as I can get - no more experimenting with gadgets or fads, just simple, basic husbandry. It seems the only time I am working on my reef these days between work, climbing when it's warm and snowboarding when it's cold is when the weather is crappy and I'm stuck inside. FTS on 4/30/2020: Ugly birdsnest sold and scape moves made! FTS on 6/20/19: FTS on 2/19/19: Here's a FTS from where I am starting from, again, in it's beat-down glory 10/4/18: All things considered, it's looking pretty decent having spent more than 2 weeks of it's life packed up just like this: While the tank is starting to really look good inside, it's not looking so good from the outside: This is where everything began - many, many years ago. All but two pieces of rock in my tank now started here:

It'll open up possibilities for additional fish and corals that I couldn't add to a smaller tank. This will be my tank of firsts. First sump, first ato, first large tank, first skimmer, first tank move, first time plumbing, etc. It's going to be a journey and I have a lot of new exciting stuff to learn along the way. I will document my journey so that hopefully others may learn from the countless mistakes that I'm about to make.

    Clown's Nuvo20

    I lucked out to get a 10g IM with the Skyye light used for $50. It had been used for 6mnths for a freshwater tank. It was in excellent condition. We made a pedestal stand for it out of 2x4's and special grade plywood used to make tractor trailers. This stand is solid and very heavy! Equipment 10g Im Stock pump Spin Stream Nozzle Skyye Light 10k 50/50 Caribsea black hawaiian live sand 80% dry rock/20% liverock I cycled the tank with just the liverock, no dosing of anything. The tank took 6 weeks to cycle. I had a favia brain in the tank because it had been in my 15g but was attacked by peppermint shrimp so I had to remove it. It was in bad shape. After the first waterchange we added a few hermits and snails. After a month we added a leather which was a carnation leather. Upon finding out the difficulty in success with this coral I brought it back to the store. I didn't want to take the chance and lose a coral in such a new tank. My first fish was a purple firefish. it was added about 2 months after start up. It was absolutely beautiful and such a great fish.

    Fluval evo 13.5 Progress

    This is my just over a year old fluval evo , it was started around the 14-15th September of 2019. The tank has been few a few ups and downs and at one point I had to completely restart (around July) Everything in the tank apart from the fish and a few rocks are brand new , I just decided to take out all the rocks and sand due to a stupidly bad algae problem and start again. Im currently running an AI prime 16HD on David Saxbys settings and a nero 3 which has random flow 24/7 I also have duct taped the original fluval light onto the first chamber to make a DIY refugium with a bit of chaeto No skimmer , No UV , No dosing , just an ATO heater and pump in the back chambers. I would say I have around 40 different frags of coral in the tank right now , it is completely mixed. I also have 2 bubble tip anemones , 1 rose and 1 more yellow / rainbow. Il try post updates every month or so just to keep tally of how its doing. EDIT: Forgot to mention husbandry , dosing or feeding Currently I feed pellets twice a day and reef roids 2 times a week I dose Red sea AB+ every day according to the recommended amount I dont dose anything like magnesium calc , alk I just have an ATO full of rodi and I do a 20-25% waterchange every week

    Type of anemone

    hi, So, I went to buy 2 life rocks and they came with 2 anemones, they are small and doing great but I don't know what type they are, one has like neon dark green at the bottom and red/brown/purple tentacles it doesn't look like it might be a bubble anemone although sometimes a few of its tentacles at the bottom looks like it might, and the other is I think a rose anemone but when I got the rock at the aquarium it look like the foot was stretched and the tentacles where very stretchy and thin, but since it has been in my tank is just fluffy. Also how far do they need to be one another? Will the clown fish host both anemones? How big the anemones grow? I appreciate the help and time for your response 🙂 I hope the attached url can be shown it is a short video of how they move. http://20200921_113520 | Flickr https://flic.kr/p/2jJPvYg

    Hurt Carpet Anemone

    Hi My Carpet Anemone got caught in my wave maker. My water was all cloudy, I thought he was all mulch. Switched off the system took him out, now he is in a quarantine tank. Give me tips to ensure he survives. He has shed off the hurt parts in jello stands. He keep shrinking and expanding. I wanna know when and what to feed him. I wanna ensure his recovery.
  10. My clownfish is hosting a purple tube as seen in the picture and is 2 inches max from the anemone but won’t get in. Any ways to help them find it? He is currently touching the anemone with his tail as well but refuses to jump in it.
  11. Hey guys I bought an already established tank (nano reef) in the fluval evo 13.5g. I have 2 questions one more important than the other but wondering on both. so I transported the aquarium with a few inches of water in it and the inhabitants in bags (1 hermit crab, 2 slugs, 2 bubble tip anemone, 1 anemone shrimp, tile of gsp, some zoas, live rock and live sand) the live rock was in a 5g pain with the tanks previous water. I also picked up 2 clownfish and 1 blue damselfish my brother bought me a hammerhead coral. so got home and added the previous water to the tank, then let the bags all float and acclimate. Then made more salt water and checked salinity, all salinities of previous, new and the fishes marine store water similar within .01-.02 of each other. I slowly added the anemones clean up crew etc. I added a bit of the tank water to the fish bags then sat for 5 min or so and then just let them sort of swim out when they were ready. I tried following the directions best I could. so In the tank things look good, the coral is slowly opening one anemone moved completely and the other is ok same spot bit open but closing up maybe because it’s night now? Do they do that? my main concern is that the 2 clown fish are staying primarily in the one top corner. The blue damsel is sort of swimming back and forth from one rock arch to another rock cave and seems fine not going to the top at all. I don’t see anything particularly concerning about the clowns except they are mostly at the top and more in one corner. First question is should I be concerned? I want them to acclimate well and be happy and healthy I’m so paranoid can’t sleep. Is there anything specific I should watch for to catch any warning signs and help? second question I can’t seem to keep the back chamber same level as the main, it’s about an inch or more lower. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? Bonus question should I have the pump nozzles aimed more at the anemones and coral or above them, away from them? I feel like I did so much research and now I’m the moment I’m just panicked on night one praying everyone is happy inside! Help 😮

    2 clownfish and a question

    Hey guys, so I have a question that I would like some advice on. My 36g tank has 2 occerlarus clownfish ( fake percula, a green LTA and random assortment of corals. I want to know how you guys get your clowns to host a anemone or to atleast get 2 clowns to host it as one of mine hosts the anemone and another hosts a frogspawn/hammer coral ( I want to say its a hammer but I could be wrong ), and as well one clownfish stays away from the other even tho they aren't a mated pair or have done anything to make a hierarchy chain. ( I have a purple dottyback In the tank that makes it hard to add new fish into it ). http://imgur.com/gallery/E8Gn9DE Here are the photos of the clownfish/anemone and coral they host.
  13. Hi All, I am a Marine newbie. My Tank specs are as follows: 1. Dimensions:36*18*18 (Inches) 2. Age: 6 months 3. Current Live stock: 1 Royal dotty-back and 3 Red hermit crabs 4. Lighting: Radion G3 PROD. It is set with the predefined template that comes up while Radion for Soft/LPS corals. 5. Wavemaker: Turned off since yesterday 6. Water Params: a. Salinity: 1.024-1.025 b. PH- A little less than 8. c. Nitrate: 2 d. Nitrite: 0 e. Ammonia: 0.15 I have recently brought home a Rainbow Bubble Tip Anemone. It was in good condition with no damaged foot. I drip acclimated it for around 3 hours before introducing it to the tank. While it was getting acclimated, I saw it sticking to the bag in which it was brought in. Then I introduced it to my tank and placed it on the live rock yesterday. The flow has been turned down and I presently have negligible flow in my tank. Ever since I brought it home, it just randomly falls off the rocks often with its tentacles facing down on the sand bed. It is all closed up. I have been reading a lot about this behavior but have seen mixed responses about some saying it it is normal and other saying its dead. Hereby attaching some pictures for Advanced aquarist to answer. Before is a picture of the Anemone under T5 at the aquarium shop. After and After 1 images illustrate mine. All Help is appreciated.
  14. He freaked out and swam right into it for a second, got stung and swam away. He seems to be fine swimming around, but is stressed. he is around 2 3/4 inches. Any experiences like this for anyone? Any advice or tips to make sure he is okay? Thank you.

    Anemone & filter

    My anemone does a lot of traveling. When I got home today he was attached to one of the filters - I took him off and moved him - he looks fine but is there anything I can do to keep that from happening or something I can cover the filter with?

    Heater burned my anemone

    Overnight, my anemone had parked himself next to the heater. I've since moved it but it looks like some damage has been done. A small area looks dark and retracted. Will this heal and can it get infected or have any long term effects?

    Clown Harem

    I am setting up a 72 gallon clownfish harem with 18 clowns. I am planning to purchase all 18 from the same clutch, plenty of Bta anemones, and feeding 4 times a day using an auto feeder to reduce aggression. I have a few questions though. The first is on flow. What type of flow pump would you use? I’m trying to decide between a gyre and a puck. The second question is on cuc. I am running a protein skimmer rated for more than double my tank size. Along with a refugium, Carbon and gfo. Would this be overkill or too little? 2x sand sifting gobys (not sure which yet) 5x astrea snails 5x nassarius snails 5x trochus snails 3x red leg hermits 3x blue leg hermits 1x tuxedo urchin The third question is on anemones. Should I place the clowns In the tank before or after I stock anemone? Does anyone have any suggestions on types of food your bta anemones prefer? The forth is on clown food. What type of food would you recommend? Any suggestions on good auto feeders? Any other suggestions and tips would be greatly appreciated.

    ID: Ball Anemone

    Found a few of these throughout my tank. They look like an anemone or some sort of mushroom. Any ideas?

    Anemone help

    Is this anemone dead or alive? Got home from work and my pair of clownfish we’re dead on the sand, water was milky but protein skimmer and pump were off also (forgot to turn back on after feeding) the anemone had it’s mouth wide open I took out my zoa’s and mushroom out and put them in bowl with changed water, same with the anemone. The zoos are starting to open up again and the anemones mouth closed up mostly. Can anybody with experience please help I don’t know what crashed the tank. Any and all advice would be appreciated thanks everyone
  20. So i have a sand-sifting sea star and im currently acclimating him with an anemone who is perched on a rock. Spud, the sea star in question, no matter how many times i move him away, keeps going to my anemone. Is he trying to eat him? We spot feed him a couple times a week...should i be worried?
  21. @banasophia recommended I should create a journal on here. So… here we go! 😊 Hello! My name is Tyler (aka inland_reef). The ‘Tale of Three Tanks’ began with the purchase of a used 28 gallon Nanocube on April 9, 2018 (Just rounded out the 1 year mark!). Like everyone else on this forum, I got addicted to saltwater aquariums 😂 This journal will talk about the evolution of my tanks, their setup specs and my ideas for future plans. While you're here, enjoy some eye candy of my current setups below. Ill try to make this a picture heavy journal, but you can see more pictures of my tanks on my Instagram page @inland_reef . I post daily updates there.

    Ball or Ghost anemone/coral? Tiny!!

    So at first I thought aptasia, but upon more research, this may be a tiny coral or ball/ghost anemone....IDK. When I say small, this thing is about 1/8” in diameter. Any thoughts? I don’t want to kill it if it’s harmless. 😑

    G_M's 20 Gallon Nem Garden

    Hey everyone! Im new to this site and nanos in general and figured I would share my progress (hopefully) with you all. A little background about myself, I have been in the SW hobby for a little over five years now and currently have a 75 gallon mixed reef which is quickly becoming SPS dominate and a 40 gallon BTA tank. I have had my eye on the Waterbox AIO tanks for a while now and after seeing some of the builds on here I decided I needed to blow some money and get one for myself! 😉 This will be a new build from the ground up, but I will be moving the livestock from the 40 breeder into it once it has cycled. Equipment Waterbox 20 gallon cube AIO AI Prime HD Stock return pump (will upgrade to sicce down the road) Hydor nano powerhead ATO from 40 gallon Apex Jr from 40 gallon Getting this tread started a little late, but here are a few pictures to get started!....I may have forget to take pictures while I was building the cabinet. I placed an order for 25lbs of live rock from Tamp Bay Saltwater which I am really looking forward to getting. The supplied bioballs are marinating in the the sump of the 75 until the rock arrives. Not too shabby for a DIY stand, need to build the door....eventually amazed by the clarity of the starfire glass. Kicking things off with the good stuff!
  24. My 5g pico has been running since March and I’ve used an Asta 20 on it. My frogspawn and pocillopora did well under it along with the miscellaneous zoas and other lps. The remote broke so the light is stuck at 60-80% and on the whiter side. Would this be sufficient for a BTA? I do have a 30g but it’s only been running for about a month. Most of the livestock from the 5g has been moved to the new tank and is tanking the transition well but I’ve heard mixed things about anemones in new/moved tanks so I’d probably start it in the pico. Would the current lighting work? If not, what would be a good cheap alternative or would it be alright in the new tank? Thanks!

    Afropenguin's Clown Tank

    Hi! This is my tank. I like it very much. I hope you like it too. This is my second saltwater tank. All pictures are taken with a pixel 2 with no gel filter and no editing (I'm too lazy to do any of that). Parameters: Salinity - 1.025 Calcium - 420 Alk - 7.9 Mag - 1320 Temperature - 77°F Nitrates - 10 Phosphates - 1 Equipment list: Tank: 40g Mode Aquarium 15g Sump (about 10g of water in there) Some heater Hydro Smart ATO Filtration: Reef Octopus Classic 110 Space Saver Skimmer 40Lbs Base rock ~20lbs live sand Bag of activated carbon BRS 6 STAGE DELUXE PLUS RO/DI SYSTEM Lighting: 2x AI Prime Circulation: Hydor Koralia 425 Jebao Return Pump Husbandry Schedule: 5 gallon water change once per week Fill ATO container once per 2-3 weeks (5g container) Clean glass / empty skimmer cup as needed Stocking List: Fish 10 Clown Fish Inverts 4 Trochus snails 1 Cerith Snail 1 Nassarius Snail 1 Blue Tuxedo Urchin 1 Fighting Conch Anemone 1 Green Haddoni Carpet Anemone 7 Bubble tip anemone 4 Rock flower anemone 1 Maxi-mini carpet anemone Coral 1 Orange plate coral - RIP Elegance coral 2 torch corals Some GSP Sun coral Red gorgonian Some acans Green Candy Cane Green Monti Cap - RIP Feeding: I usually just feed a blend of whatever I have to the clown fish and the leftovers get picked up by the NPS corals. I spot feed the anemones silverside once a week but will probably start feeding them squid since the clowns won't eat it. Lighting Schedule: Plan to add: Algae reactor Auto roller mat Replace lid with something else
