  1. Hi everyone, I've started a new build, and have decided to document it in this journal so that you might follow along (if you're interested). Background: I used to have a wonderful tiny mixed reef picotank for the last few months which brought me much joy. Unfortunately, 2.6G of volume wasn't enough to grow out all my corals, and I did add more than 60+ frags in that little tank. Eventually, I decided upgrading was the best solution. I needed a tank that wasn't too large that it would become a burden doing WCs, but not too small that it didn't have enough space to accommodate all the corals either. I settled on a 10G+ tank - it was roomy enough to meet my requirements, and most importantly, be simple enough to WC every week. I used the Tank Transfer Method (TTM) to upgrade, and used established cured LR (~5-years-old) from older systems as a biofilter. Only the LS was new, but I seeded it with a small cup of LS from my picoreef. The new nano is now located in my bedroom, and the temp. dips down to as low as 25'C (night) and as high as 30'C (very hot afternoons). The swing seems wild, but my pico operated under the same temp. range (more or less), and so far the animals didn't have any issues with the temp. Specifications: 10.23G tank 18" x 12" x 11" Rimless 6mm Crystal Glass Equipment: H300 Dophin HOB (440L/Hr) Aqua Knight Spectra M029 (30W) Jebao SOW-4 Wavemaker (4000L/Hr) Media: Activated Carbon Filter Floss Rocks: Established LR taken from my previous 2.6G's picoreef, 60G's refugium & 10G's nanocube in the library Sand: 4.5kg Aragonite Live Sand --> seeded with a small cup of LS taken from the sandbed of my 2.6G picoreef Water: Tap Water + Dechlorinator (Nutrafin/Prime) Salt: Fritz RPM Aquaforest Reef Salt Fish: None for now.

    True Percula and Black Saddleback

    I decided to try pairing a true percula and a black saddleback ocellaris. I introduced them to the tank at the same time and made sure to have a plan in place to separate them if things went wrong. They've only been together for a week now, but I haven't seen any signs of aggression or bullying. Last night they slept in their anemone together. It's too cute!
  3. Ok so I got a 30 gallons tank, with hermit crabs and two clownfish. The tank is only two weeks old. I have a fluval 207 et a protein skimmer. I just had a Magnificent sea anemone, will it survive? Should I bring it back?

My tank has been already 'built', however I thought I would try to share photos of how it matures, even if it is only for my own entertainment. Having previously fallen in love with the freshwater hobby over a year ago, I'm not particularly experienced, however I like to think I've learnt a lot since starting. I was first attracted to the saltwater hobby over a year ago, when I discovered the first marine lfs where I live. I instantly fell in love with the 'more colourful' fish, and I thought that corals would certainly be far too hard! Fast forward to March this year, and being in Australia, I had been spending a lot of time at home. Eventually my girlfriend allowed me to get a second tank if that was what I kept to. I'm proud to say its stayed at two tanks for the time being! In April, I picked the Waterbox 10 at my local lfs because I liked the cube shape, and the AIO nature of it, and I thought it would be a reasonable place to start in the saltwater hobby. After consulting my lfs, I bought everything that was needed, setting it up with: - 5 kgs Caribsea Dry Rock Arches, - ~6 kgs Course Aragonite Sand, - AI Prime 16HD with Flex Arm Then what followed was an extremely frustrating process of waiting. I had prepared myself for approximately a month of cycling, and my ammonia was at 0 after approximately 3 weeks, but the Red Sea test kit showed nitrite at the maximal 1, with nitrates often being 5-10. This led me to believe I couldn't start until I had 0 nitrate due to my lfs and my experience in freshwater. I then was curious about what could possibly be causing this, and I discovered my rocks were leaching small amounts of ammonia, and reasonable amounts of nitrite, by way of an experiment. I did this by performing an experiment with a control, with the rocks separately in buckets of water, and with the sand again in separate water. The rocks had 0.25 ammonia each and 0.5 nitrite each after 2 days. I have no explanation for how this occurred. (I'm a science student, can you tell?) I eventually came upon information that nitrite is not toxic to marine life in low levels around July, after buying and using so much bottle bac! However being cautious I waited it out, hoping my nitrite would reduce. Finally I bit the bullet and bought a basic ocellaris clownfish. Thankfully, all was well for about a week, with no signs of stress, and so I wanted to get 'it' a friend. Whilst at the lfs I fell in love with a picasso percula clownfish, as well as a small green bta. I also grabbed a small clean up crew of turbos and hermits. Having researched the gbta previously, I know it was a dubious decision, however, is my tank mature after being dormant since April? Who knows? The gbta quite quickly settled in a location and to my surprise was extremely happy visually. A few days later the picasso percula then started hosting it! I then visited the lfs a couple weeks later, where my girlfriend had spotted a nem that she loved. So I figured when I returned I'd entertain her and see what nem it was. It was a 'rainbow' bubble tip, and when we returned to the lfs she pointed it out in their display. I asked about their availability, and they offered to sell that exact nem to me, as it had split! I had also hoped that given my clowns weren't paired they could have a nem each for the time being! Unfortunately the percula decided both nems were theirs, defending them both from the poor ocellaris. I'll leave the thread at that for now, I hope you enjoy it!
  5. pH: 8.1 Ammonia: 0 ppm Nitrite: 0.125 ppm Nitrate: 0 ppm 40 gallon tank has been cycling for a few weeks. Added a pair of percula clownfish and green bubble tip anemone. Anemone was looking great and open the other day, last night it started to close. I'm worried it might be dying. It looks like it's starting to open again this morning, but I'm still a bit concerned. I would love to hear any and all opinions. I'm new to the saltwater hobby, so I'm open to suggestions as well. Thank you in advance!

    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.

    Help Dying Anemone

    Hi everyone, I'm newbie and i need some helps I have an anemone in my 6 month tank Nearly 2 days, i looked my anemone stressful, it comes smaller, some polyps are bad and mouth look bigger My specification of tank - Ca 440 - No3 <10 - Po4 < 0.5 - kH 8 - RO/DI water - Temperature 24°C Tropical Salt, All elements are dosed by seachem Thank you so much, sorry for my english. Help me please !
  9. I made a post a few days ago in My IM 20g flower flower farm that Something was funky with one of the baby RFA born in the tank.....I realize how rare this would be & how improbable to find in the tank so I'm still not 100% that this is actually what it is.......Anyway.... I think it is a Siamese twin with two heads! I'm about 85-90% sure. I saw a post on another form about an adult green RFA someone bought that would not attach because it had a parasitic twin attached to its foot so a Siamese twin would have to be just as possible. Its soooo small its very hard for me to tell 100% at this point. (if it isn't it's still strange & interesting that they would hold onto each other like that) At first I thought it was just two that were holding onto one another but after very gently trying to get them to separate & watching hem attach & hold on with what looks like the same oddly oval shaped foot I do think this is what I have going on....Even stranger they started out pure white but seem to be developing color at different rates. One has a brown/orange face & the other is whitish. I'm starting this thread to keep track of its development & health to see if it is actually two & if it separates. Its so tiny I'm hoping I don't loose it. I wonder if they will develop different colors & if its male or female or both! I estimate that it is about a week old. The heads are about half the size of one of its siblings from this same batch one is slightly smaller than the other but the foot is about the same size as the others. Ok interesting I found ANOTHER "twin" & this time there is no question what this one is. It is larger about twice the size of this one with both heads the same color two heads one body. One is head a little smaller than the other one. They are the same color & closer together that is why I did not notice before. What genetic oddness is going on in this tank..? Most of my rfa are sourced from different places at different times & none of the adults were born in this tank & there so I don't think its inbreeding. Siamese twin(?) #1 Siamese twin #2

    Cloak anemone care

    I recently found a red flat clawed hermit crab and then a cloak anemone attached to an empty shell at the beach. Acclimated them to my tank and they soon became friends. My tank is very new, just finished the cycling process and these are my first creatures in it. It’s been about 2 weeks since I introduced them to the tank and the anemone seems to be vibrant and lively but I have read so many posts about how anemones need to be in older tanks with optimal lighting and water quality. Is it too risky to keep? I am conflicted because I know anemones need specific care but this kind lives on the back of a bottom feeder with ever-changing lighting, water quality etc. in its natural habitat. I’m a first time reefer any advice is appreciated

    Is my anemone dead?

    Tank 13.5 .25 ammonia 0 on nitrate and nitrite temp 78 tank 3 months old 2 clowns 1 diamond spotted (the devil and hate him) goby 5 snails 1 cleaner shrimp i think I starved it, was feeding reefroids once a week. Last week it turned this purple and wasn’t inflating. I got a shrimp and spot feed it, it ate the small piece of shrimp. It hasn’t recovered back to normal since. The attached picture was after I removed it from the rock to smell if dead, no it just smelled like salt water. Idk what to do. I upgraded the pump for better flow and light. I started (after I saw he was sick) doing some iodine drops, read it’s good for zoa. Question or advice, how can I bring it back? Or should I just remove? And not buy another one till I am ready? idk looking forward guidance I will admit I failed it

    how much rock

    what is the bare minimum of reef saver rock i can use to aquascape a standard 20 gallon aquarium. filteration should not be much of a concern as i have a canester filter packed full of bio media rated for a 70 gallon and will upgrade to a sump very soon, and i have a 1.5 inch sand bed. i was recommended 0.5 kg/ 1 lbs per gallon but can i go much lower than that. its a fish and invert only system and i will not be adding coral as its illegal in my area. thanks!

    Bubble Tip Anemone Advice

    Hello reefers, I have come across the opportunity to obtain a bubble tip anemone for pretty cheap and was wondering if it would be worth looking into. I have a 25 gallon AIO peninsula that has two clowns, a royal gramma, and various inverts and soft corals. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing a bit of a diatom bloom, most likely because my tank is not fully established. If I were to get the anemone, it would most likely be next weekend. Would it be okay to purchase the anemone this early, or should I wait until the diatom outbreak has ended? Feel free to share any personal experiences or advice. Here is a link to my tank journal:
  16. I have a 22" tank and I used to have only led light, then I added T5, at fisrt everything in the tank liked it, corals loved it, but after 4-5 months later only the anemones are starting to act weird, as I turn on the T5s some start to shrivel, not right away but within hours, I also notice that some zooxanthellae is release (at least i think that's what it is) they used to poop normal pieces but now is brown see-through tissue, everything else in the tank is ok, I do waterchanges every week (i mean it). I also wanted to add a Gyre XF330 that I bought but I feel like it's too strong the slowest setting is 20% and that was upsetting the anemones as well so I took it off the same day I got it, kind of sad since it did help to lift off the food debri from the sand and hiding places. Also sometimes while deflating the anemones open their mouth and sometimes release food eaten a day before (feed once a week). The magnifica since to be doing better it had a bad time for a while but I set it up on top of rocks and it likes it, seems to be the only one to be fine with or without lighting. The bta in middle used to be bigger and very bubbly. ANY HELP WILL BE EXTREMELY APPRECIATED. Tank species: Anemones; magnifica, 4 bta, 2 torch, 1 hammer, 2 galaxia, zooas, 4 gorgonians, 2 leather, 2 polyps, Duncan, mushrooms, sponges, pulsing x, and 3 mantiporas. Clean up crew: emerald crabs, anemone crab, sand starfish, clams, bumblebee snail, and blue legged crab. Refugium: pods, chaeto micro and gracilaria.

    Looking for pests

    I'm testing some setups out and I'm looking for a couple of things. Anyone know where I can get Majano Anemone or Ball Tip Anemone (specifically strawberry)? Does anyone have any that they'd be willinf to sell? Also looking for some algae, specifically Dictyota. There are some others that people don't like that I'd be down to have.

    Afropenguin's Clown Tank

    February 2021 Update: Got rid of aptasia, added some new coral. January 2021 update: Did not update for over a year Original tank update: 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.

    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

    Anemone Jar Inquiry

    The popularity of jar reefs coupled with the video below is inspiring me to create a desktop biotope with just anemones. I used to have a bunodosoma cavernata in a 2 gallon while in college but that was almost 40 years ago when undergravel filters were the norm. In the past decade I have seen others keep condys, rock flowers, bubble tip and even min-maxis in nano tanks, but there is something intriguing about going smaller and trying an anemone in a jar. I came across this article and would like to do something similar but with a different, more colorful anemone. https://www.reef2rainforest.com/2017/10/31/when-i-say-aiptasia-you-say-pest-at-pratt-we-say-pet-instead/ First choice would be the red beadlet anemone (Actinia equina) but they are impossible to find in the USA. Waratahs are also difficult to locate and they are cold water, therefore not being considered atm. So my search is leaning towards majano's... a green one or one with colored tips would be ideal. The closest marine LFS is about 80 miles away so I really don't have the option of browsing through their live rock in the attempt to find one. I am currently searching online and the reefing community for a colorful majano, but since most hobbyists kill them on sight my attempts to locate even a single specimen have not been productive.

    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:
