    Coral Beauty Angel Fish options?

    So... a local buyer was having a deal on a Coral Beauty angelfish. I have a 30G cube tank but now I'm hearing that it might be too small. I did do my research and many people advicated on allowing a baby coral beutty to be in there but I just want to make sure I didn't make a mistake. I'm planning on purchasing a larger reef tank (70-80G) in the next few months. I only have 1x Clown, 1x Sleeper goby & 1 Cleaner shrimp... The coral beauty I got is approx. 1in in length. There is enough rockwork to hide behind. I do have some LPS & zoas. Will she be ok in my current tank util I get my bigger one? Should I just keep her in the 20-30G long QT tank? or Should I sell her?

    Hello looking for help I recently set up my fluval evo aquarium with just dry rock and coral sand and I have no filtration set up yet as per the advice just a power head and bio media .. I added my Dr tims bacteria and 1 drop of ammonia per gallon after I tested my water parameters the following day my nitrite read 0,2 and my ammonia 3ppm, so I didn't add anymore ammonia and checked today my levels are the exssact same? My pH has also been 7 both days I understand its low but it says not to mess with pH until tank fully cycled? Any advice would be appreciated

    Cass' Aquamaxx 22 Long

    Inspired by two favorites from the Nano-Reef community, I have decided to start my own nano reef. I will be mixing an matching ideas from the magnificent tanks of both MrNanoReef and Scorched to make my own little reef while keeping track of the actual cost of building a (hopefully nice ) Nano Reef tank. Any advices that you veterans have for me would be very welcome! Now, lets dive into it.

    Haxen's 5 Gallon Pico

    Hello Everyone. Here's my first pico fowlr tank. It's now 3 weeks old. Tank: Unbranded 5G Glass Tank Light: Par 38 Blue/White LED Light from AliExpress Filter: Dophin H200 HOB Wavemaker: Unbranded 3W wavemaker from AliExpress Salt Water: From the sea Biofiltration: 1Lb Live Rock from the sea Livestock: Fish and CuC Winkle Snails Bullet Shrimps Hermit Crabs Tiny Crabs 1 x Arabian Cowrie 1 x Cocoa Damsel (Got eaten by lobster) 1 x Octopus (Died) 1 x Spiny Lobster (3 Inches long)
  6. Latest updated photo 10-20-19: Hello friends, this is my new project, it's a 5 gallon Topfin engage. This is day 2 and live rock is in, but the sand wasn't live. I don't really have mapped out plans for it so we'll see it evolve as the days go on. Right now i'm going to wait a few weeks maybe a month for the system to cycle. So far I haven't added anything non stock to the aquarium, besides heater. I'm using Chemipure and Purigen for filtration. I think I need more interesting looking rock, but for now it'll do to break in the system. I prefer soft & lps coral so that's going to be the main inhabitants, fish-wise idk yet (prob clowns). I'm going to update every week or so, stay tuned. First photo log 10-15-19:
  7. Hello there new aquarium friends. I’m totally new to this whole world of aquariums. I’ve never really had a cool setup like I’ve received from my gfs father. He gave me a bunch of awesome tools to make an epic aquarium. I have been wanting to make an awesome aquarium for my home for some time now. But it’s such a costly but well worth it kind of hobby. I have been given a 14 gallon Oceanic bio cube. Also there is a new light that he added from stevesled. I need to figure out the configuration of the plugins to the lights. Also learning how to setup the timing for all the light. Also have no idea what cycles to set up the timers on. He suggested some things to get started: 10 lbs of live sand carribsea arag-Alice aquarium sand. 3 x 5 galling imagitarium Pacific Ocean water 5-10 pounds of live rock If any of you have any good starter tips or and any information on the light setups and timers please feel free to help.

    Worrysome silicone seam

    Whelp, didn't really notice this area in the seam of my new 20Long during its' wet-test outside, or maybe I did and the lighting inside just makes it more obvious/bad? I'm not sure I trust the integrity of the bond because of where its' located in the panel and how little, not apparently-delaminated, silicone is left, but my silicone experience is with doors and windows, not aquariums. A shiny-new penny for any and all thoughts alongside much appreciation! *Edit, Aqeuon tech thinks it should be fine, doesn't feel it was big enough or through enough of the silicone to be an issue, should have called them first come to think of it, guess I value the experience and opinions of hobbyists a bit more than mnfctrs?

Over the years I have had nano's and larger reef systems but this is my first pico so looking forward to getting it going. My light holder, filter, seachem prime and carbon will be delivered tomorrow so I can get going on it. So far this is what I have... Microvue3 5.5 gallon cube tank Koralia Nano 240 - Maybe, depends on flow coming from filter 50w Tetra Heater Aquaclear HOB Filter Digital thermometer ABI LED Aquarium Light 5 lbs Dry Rock - Will seed with some rubble from my 36g Bow Front Sand The two pics here are of the first idea for my aquascaping. Gonna play with some other idea's before making a decision. The one branching piece I am gonna take a frag from my GSP to put on it to make it kind of look like a GSP tree if I stick with it. If not then may attach the frag to the back glass and let it cover it like a all of GSP. Let me know your thoughts on this scape, will post more tomorrow once I play around with it lol.

    SLOOYE'S NUVO 10 BUILD.

    SLOOYE'S 10 GALLON NUVO FUSION BUILD OVERVIEW: Decided to start up a small nano again after being away from the hobby for a bit. I was 16 at the time I set up my first tank (20 now), so iv'e been able to learn a substantial amount of information since then. Along with being able to learn from my mistakes. My budget has also increased so that will definitely help with setting up more of a sleek looking setup. The plan is to track my progress weekly (or whenever something worth talking about comes about.) The tank is currently in its cycling phase and is set up in my bedroom on my dresser. THE PLAN: The plan for this tank is to keep everything pretty simple. Since I only have 10 gallons to work with I want to work with keeping the bio load quite low. With that being said I want to keep only 2-3 fish stocked at max. Fish wise, I'd like to go with a designer clownfish. Thinking a snowflake most likely. (There is a facility that breeds designers about an hour from my house.) Also maybe a blenny eventually. I figured since there won't be many fish in the tank, I want the ones that are to really stand out. For corals, I'm thinking LPS at the moment. Want to keep this tank as bright colored as possible. EQUIPMENT: -Nuvo fusion 10 -Kessil A80 tuna blue -Kessil gooseneck -Sicce 0.5 (upgraded the stock return pump) -Nuvo spin stream nozzle -Tunze nano ATO -50w eheim jager -Chinese digital thermometer off amazon OTHER SPECS/INFO: -8 pounds of dry rock (From Bulk Reef Supply) -Bio active live sand -Using Dr. Tims ammonia and Instant Ocean Bio Spira to fishless cycle the tank. -Chemipure blue nano (added filtration) -Instant ocean reef crystals for mixing -Hydrometer (Need to order a refractometer) -API Saltwater Test Kit PROGRESS: Before Adding Water: 10-18-18 Water added: 10-21-18 Current: 10-27-18

    New NanoBox LED Color : Mint

    NanoBox is excited to introduce a new color to the NanoBox lineup, Mint. The color was discovered after switching to the Luxeon C LED on the V3.1 array. We have been using Lime for three years and have had incredible success. The mint spectrum nearly mimics lime however has a peak under the 450nm ( wavelength ). As you can see in the graph below marked with light pink. What does this mean for reefers? A better overall color, better blending and a more ideal spectrum. We have tested this spectrum for over a year with amazing results. Our original Lagoon 25, IM Drop Off , Fusion 10 and now our Red Sea 170 have used the mint spectrum. Along with many of our loyal NanoBox customers. The mint color has a "greenish" tone however once you blend with royal blue, blue, cyan and violet you will see how it shines. Mint Only : Mix : When will this be implemented in the NanoBox lineup? We made the switch back in November! We started to hear more and more people talk about the color looking better and glad we made the switch. Mint costs a few cents more but is well worth it. Will we be able to run the mint channel independently? Yes, if you would like. When ordering I would need to know. If you currently have a Plus M model we can change the wiring to separate the mint. Experiments? We have been running all of our tanks without any white supplementation for sometime. The results have blown us away. While there still needs to be true testing done ( spectrograph ) we believe this is a step forward. Creating a "reef" spectrum without white. If you look at 90% of the LED lights out there the white channel is marginally used. NanoBox will be sending a unit out to be tested utilizing only mint, royal blue, blue, cyan and violet. Rainbow Chalice Under Above : Have questions? Ask away! Happy reefing! -Dave

    can we? Or can we not?

    So as the title states, can we? Or can we not? Being Reef hobbiest as a whole we all have many things we say can or cannot be done, from fish store employees, to hobby literature, , veterans, to beginners, everybody’s opinions are different. I’ve worked in the industry for years, and have heard many many things. What I’ve noticed is most of these have no bases in actual science. Some of which I’ve proven through expierments to be false and others true (gorgonians do not die if they touch air, some sponges however do) what I have found is a “you cannot unless you....” is more appropriate. So everybody post things that you think cannot be done or “rules” you have heard that you are unsure about and let’s discuss them. See if someone has evidence to the contrary. And maybe have some results for expierments proving if this to be the case or not. Please let’s not take unneeded risks with livestock, always be mindful and responsible of the creatures we care for. And please keep an open mind and remember some of the species we keep now would have been considered impossible not that long ago.

  23. Was planning on upgrading my tank to this 24 gal but decided to just wait until I can upgrade to something in the triple digits. Tank has been completely cleaned out and scrubbed real good, in great condition with absolutely no leaks. The person I bought it from also provided a stand but it’s in rough condition so I never used it, you’re more than welcome to take that as well. Comes with the pump and a spinning nozzle for random flow throughout the tank. Surface skimmer. Stock hood (missing the little door that you lift to feed the fish) has the stock light and works just fine. Does not come with any other filtration media in the chambers but I will be more than happy to provide box crate and zip ties for you to make your own filter media basket (which is way better than the original basket anyways.) I can also throw in some polyfill to get you started on the mechanical filtration. Bought it for $175 yours for $90 LOCAL PICK UP ONLY!!!!! San Fernando Valley, California
