  1. Got a Fluval Evo 13.5 for $100USD when it’s on sale. Immediately upgrade most of the equipments since I will be keeping corals in the near future. I had a 65G SPS reef tank for 5+ years before and call it quits last year since I don’t have time anymore and the tank was neglected. I got the itch again and decided to get back in with a nano reef since it’s smaller and doesn’t take long for maintenance. This time around I’m automating as much of the tank as possible to prevent making it feel like a chore. Equipments: - Hipargero LED 60W on a mechanical timer. (Soon to pick up a AI Hydra HD this sunday) - Stock return pump, although I have a cobalt maxi jet 1200 that I could use but for now the stock pump is sufficient. - Aqamai KPS (Picking up a Vortex Mp10wQD this Sunday) - Intank chamber 1 media basket - 100 watts cobalt heater - Eheim automatic fish feeder - Autoaqua nano ATO - Dry rock with some live rock rubbles - 20lbs live sand Tank has been up for 2 weeks. Live stocks includes 2 oscellaris clownfish, 2 blue legged hermit crabs, a few pulsing xenia (eventually have to pull them because these will grow like weeds but I like the pulsing action). Will add more fish/ corals as tank matures.

    Le Dirté Brute Squad 13.5g

    After starting my membership here with a strong showing, and for my own educational purposes and record, I guess I’ll start a journal. Seems like a good place to keep a list of ideas and tips to help me on this journey! Tank: Fluval Evo XII 13.5 gallon started 1/21/2019 Equipment: Fluval spec return pump 132gph Fluval sea mini protein skimmer 5-10gallon Fluval 50W heater In Tank Chamber 1 media basket Current Orbit Marine LED light w bracket arm Current Orbit Eflux Wave pump 660gph (along w their hubs) IM mesh screen Media: Fluval bio rings (bottom level of media basket) Fluval 100gm carbon (bottom level media basket) Fluval clearmax (middle level media basket) IM filter floss (top level media basket) Stock: 14lbs live rock ? Lbs of life sand Black oscellaris clown True percula clown Blue spotted goby watchman Red banded snapping shrimp Scarlet shrimp Trochus snails x4 Dwarf red hermit crabs x 10 Star polyp x 2 (one split into two sections thanks to hermits, so there’s three-ish) Palys x 2: both protopalythoa Hairy mushroom x3 (all on one big rock) Hammer x 1 Zoa x1 Now obviously I didn’t start with all of this at once. We started with three clowns in fact- two percula and the oscellaris, but the two bigger fish kept trying to kill the smaller so I took the small guy back to save him from certain death within a week. Following that, the black was named Jolly Roger and the percula Jack Sparrow. (What can I say- this tank is “supposed” to be owned by my soon to be 9 year old who LOVES POTC, but secretly, it’s mine 😁) We started with two trochus and five hermits, but I doubled that for more cleaning power after about two and a half weeks. Those guys don’t get names. We added the goby and his “pal” Jan 22, but they NEVER hang with each other and in fact I’m not sure they know the other exists anymore. The goby was named J Edgar Hoover because he is always watching us with disapproval from across the room and follows us around the tank with his permanent frown. The pistol shrimp was named Snappy because well..... 🤷🏻‍♀️ We added the scarlet shrimp a week ago, and he’s quite the personality. We call him the Red Baron. We started the tank with a zoa and the little star polyp that the herms split in two. We next added the protopalys. Added the hammer today, with some drama due to the LFS lady who evidently thinks I’m out to kill everything in my tank 🤦🏽‍♀️. That’s it for this tank in a nutshell.
  3. EDIT: he sadly passed away! but PLEASE if you have any idea why he died tell me hello there! we got a new clownfish yesterday to our tank, he was doing very good but he seemed having issues with other clownfishes in out tank. today when i woke up i found him like this, i really dont know what to do. he doesnt seem to swim much and just stays like that, his fins are ragged and he seems to have some white parts in his belly. he looks like he is dead but is still moving here is a little video:

    Bay Area Nuvo 10

    Hi all, and hi to the Nuvo 10 community! For the past year or so, I've been wanting a reef of my own, and I'm now addicted. I decided on the Innovative Marine Nuvo 10 for the compact size and transportability, given that I plan to take it to college eventually. As of the moment I am writing this, I currently have put the rock and sand into the tank, after cycling the rock for about 3 weeks in a 5-gallon bucket using Fritz Turbo Start. The sand is Fiji Pink, and the rocks are Walt Smith 2.1. I have the tank on the 10 gallon white JBJ Nano Cubey Stand, which looks really great with the tank. Equipment List IM Nuvo 10 Tank 10 Gallon White JBJ Nano Cubey Stand AI Prime HD (modded AB+ settings) Cobalt Neo-Therm 50 watt heater (best heater on the market) Sicce Syncra .5 Return Pump Vortech mp10wqd inTank Media Basket (Running inTank filter floss, 2 chemi pure blue nano packets, and 1 marinepure cube) Tunze ATO (stuck deciding between Tunze Nano or investing in the regular Tunze ATO) Neptune ApexEL (Probably gonna get a salinity probe) (Not planning on running a skimmer, I'm running 4 MarinePure cubes in the second chamber) Aquatic Life 100gpd RODI unit Tropic Marin Pro Reef salt (mixes extremely fast) Tank as of August 16, 2019. No light or ATO yet.

    Kait’s 13.5g Kiddo Tank

    FTS as of 06/10/19: Equipment: Tank: Fluval Evo 13.5 Stand: Mastercraft tool cabinet Light: Kessil a80 Return pump: Tunze Silence 1073.008 Circulation: Wavemaker TBD, Heater: Eheim Jager 50w Temperature controller: inkbird 308 Filtration: Chamber one: inTank chamber one media basket with filter floss, stock carbon and media for now. Chamber two: just the heater. Chamber three: return pump and temp probe. Stocking plans: Fish: YCG added June 8/19 Pair of clowns added July 16/19 Inverts: 1 astrea snail 2 turbo snails 1 bumblebee snail 2 hermit crabs Corals: Planning softies with maybe a few LPS. Nothing too demanding, keeping it simple since this is my first saltwater tank and I don’t want to get too complicated for a tank that belongs to a preschooler. —— Well, I've wanted to set up a reef tank for years, but life kept getting in the way. I had bought some stuff to start a 40B a few years ago but that project got derailed when I got pregnant with my oldest. Fast forward almost 4 years and the aforementioned derailment is now an almost 4 year old who absolutely loves fish (and so do his little brothers). The one bright point of all the time he and his siblings spend at hospitals is always checking out the fish tanks they have for some time to de-stress. So this little guy is getting a 13.5g evo for his birthday for he and I to enjoy together. His is birthday is the first week of June, our current goal is to have it cycled and ready for his first fish on his birthday. I have the tank sitting waiting, refractometer arrived just now and the stand should be here today too before the holiday. Going to be sticking with the stock lights and such at least for now, since we’re not looking to get into anything too complicated for a tank for a 4 year old, we’ll be sticking to softies and maybe some LPS. I’ll probably end up at least adding a power head sometime soon, but for cycling we’ll be ok with the stock return pump. I have to check my gear in the basement, I had a heater that was supposed to be for a QT tank that might work for this tank, if not I still need to grab one, along with some salt, distilled water (we don’t have the space in our little rental for a RODI unit right now so we’re starting with distilled), test kit and some rock from the LFS. They only carry the Caribsea Life Rock so we’ll see how that works out for us. Hoping to get the tank wet this weekend to start cycling. Stocking plans are up in the air mostly except for a clownfish, or maybe a pair. This is a tank (mostly) for a child after all, so it wouldn’t be complete without a clown.
  7. Hey guys, just got my first clown-fish for my nano tank and I was wondering if my pump is too powerful for it. I have some corals too and I don't know if the return flow that comes with the aquarium is enough and if the extra pump may be too much? I have an Aqueon 500 pump and my tank is a Fluval EVO 13.5 I'll add a video link for you guys to see how it swims, even when I turn it off it seems to like that spot and just swims over there. I'll appreciate any comments. Thanks! https://photos.app.goo.gl/LTDrzcM8NoUiLEgo8
  8. So my 20g tank just finished cycling a few days ago. On Sunday I went and got a pair of clownfish. Monday morning I noticed small white spots on both. Needless to say, i believe it's ich. I didnt QT them (i dont even have a QT tank, but I definitely will in the future), just acclimated and dropped em in. I'm reading about running the tank fallow for 76 days, but my question is what should be my course of action? Is that best with a small tank? I only have a hermit and snail in the tank, no coral yet. Most likely I will have 4-5 total fish, so what would you do??

    To add or not to add...

    Another small fish, that is my question 😁 I'm quite aware this question has been asked a thousand times, and I read through quite a few of these threads. However, I'd like to be sure about my individual aquarium, before going out and buying a gorgeous fish, that I should not have bought 😁 My 20g Waterbox is currently stocked with a pair of clowns, a Tailspot Blenny (which I adore really), a cleaner shrimp and of course an assorted CUC. The first couple of months I had some trouble with stabilizing the water conditions, however at the moment I notice more steady water conditions and after 6 months there is coralline algae developing pretty much all over the aquarium. Am I correct in assuming the tank is starting to stabilize and age? (I am seeing some pineapple sponges and other filter feeders as well) Now the clowns and blenny are active, but docile and don't bother each other, nor the shrimp. The cleaner shrimp is having a ball following every bit of movement from under his rock overhang. Because I enjoy watching the livestock and their daily business so much (more then I expected actually) I am wondering if it would be possible to add another small, peacefull fish. And if so, what kind of fish? I was thinking of either a Firefish (perhaps a purple one) or a Neon Blue Goby or another type of goby? What do you guys think, would it be wise to squeeze in another fish, or would it be too cramped up in a 20g? If you guys would advice against it, you're going to cost me, because I might start considering a bigger tank 😇

    My tangs are protecting my male clown?? (Video)

    So let me preface this by saying that yes my tank is small for those two tangs. They get along great and are just in the tank for algae control until I move them to my larger system. So so recently my female clown has become more and more aggressive. To the point where the male now has to resign to the bottom corner of the tank. Today I sat down and observed my tangs seeming to break up the domestic dispute. Every time the female started acting up the hippo tang arrived and carefully slid between them and guided the female away. The yellow tang even joined in too. This video is not a one off and doesn’t even do a fantastic job of demonstrating the behavior I’m talking about. Does anyone know what’s going on here. I can’t think of any other way to explain the behavior than that the tangs don’t want to see the conflict for some reason. Heres the link to the video: https://youtu.be/GUaWYtLBfgE
  12. @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.
  13. Moving back to FL soon and need to find a good home for these fish. Located in Horseheads, NY and willing to travel within 45 mins to meet up. Female clownfish is a misbar blood orange clownfish Male is a standard ocellaris clownfish Really just want to get them to a good home. Will accept any reasonable offer. Also selling Mr Aqua 12 gallon tank (3 foot long version)
  14. Considering options for a nano tank setup with a pair of clownfish, bubble tip anemone and CUC. My current idea is a 16 gal Biocube with light upgrade (Steve’s/NanoBox LED). Saw a few post that may suggest this is too small. What do you all think?

    Sustainable Reef Stocking for 23 Gallon

    Hey reefers! After many successful years in the freshwater hobby, I've decided to jump ship into reefing. My current system is a 23~ gallon display (I can't remember exact numbers since I use the metric system) with a sump (8 gallons?) with a skimmer, wavemaker ect. I purchased the tank already cycled and with coral from a local reefer 2 weeks ago, and have since added a happy pair of captive bred ocelaris clowns. I was wondering what other options I have in terms of livestock, but with a twist. I want my reef to have as little impact on the real ones as possible, so I'm looking for fish suggestions who are regularly available captive bred. I know this limits my options quite a lot, but I'm hoping you guys have my back. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
  16. Yesterday night my clownfish started flashing. There was nothing visible on his skin. I gave him a freshwater dip. I just got home from work today and he’s got a big white something hanging off his face. It almost looks like some sand stuck by his mouth, but it’s definitely stuck on. Quick background on my tank, it’s new (like 2ish months) and all the fish are newish too. I added a cardinalfish a LFS. Then I added the clown who I got from divers den live aquaria. Then I added a second cardinal from a second LFS. I’ve added coral from local stores and that I’ve ordered online. I didn’t quarantine anyone (I know I know I should have). Both cardinalfish are looking and acting totally normal. I gave the clownfish a freshwater bath for 5 minutes last night. I know it was probably too little too late, but I wanted to do something. Nothing visible came off him. It’s my first tank and I didn’t quarantine because I don’t really have the space or money to set up a quarantine tank. WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE?? What’s the cheapest/easiest but still ethical way for me to fix my clown? Aldo let me know if you need any additional info from me.

    Isaac's Peninsula Reef

    Welcome to my journey! I decided to get back into the reefing hobby, Im a bit late to post on the forum, but my tank is already up and running! I add corals every week, and post updates. I Hope you enjoy, my little piece of the ocean 🙂 Tank: Fluval Evo 13.5 Gallon Equipment: Aqua Illumination Prime HD Jebao OW-10 on the W2 Sine Settings, third speed (a little less than 400GPH) InTank Media Basket (Chamber One) -> Filter Floss -> Chemipure Blue -> Marine Pure Eheim Heater Stock Return Pump Live Rock / Real Reef Rock Aqua Forest Reef Salt Aqua Forest Pro Bio F Aqua Forest Bio S Live Stock: Bullet Hole Clownfish (Drogon) Black Ice Clownfish ( Rhegal) Bubble Tip Anemone Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp (Tyrion... because he cleans up everyones mess 😛 ) Blue Leg Hermit Crabs Red Stripe Snails Coral: Sunny D Zoa Nebula Zoa Eagle Eye Zoa Holy Grail Torch (QT) Gold Aussie Torch (QT) Bonsai Acropora (QT) Maintenance: I do daily water changes of about 1-2 Liters of water, and have found that my fish and coral love it, my clowns have already laid the first clutch of eggs, so things are working out:)! I feed a variety of food, PE Mysis, LRF Nano, and New Life Spectrum. They get fed the NLS Pellets in the morning, the PE Mysis in the afternoon, and at night the get Reef Frenzy Nano I just did a water change so I will post photos in a couple hours! 🙂
  18. I am wanting to set up a 20 gallon nano reef tank, I haven’t started yet as I’m pricing things out. But I’m am wondering how much gph water flow I should get? My filter currently does 92gph, but as I’ve gathered so far that isn’t ebough water flow for a reef tank. Can I please get some suggestions? Also I’m planning on getting a clown fish, and an anenome (most likely bubble) after the tank has matured. As for other fish I haven’t thought or planned any yet but i’s Love to get a tuxedo urchin.
  19. I'm bored at work so I guess I'll officially make a thread for this tank (seeing as though I have been better at updating lately). I'm going to start the thread with it's current stocking and state. If you want to look at older pictures of the build, I have a pretty extensive record on my Instagram account: pico_reefer. Equipment: - Fluval Evo 5 - MP 10 - Cobalt 50 watt heater - Kessil a160we Livestock: - Gold nugget maroon clownfish (female) - lightning maroon clownfish (male) - 1 sexy shrimp - various types of bubble tip anemones (the original plan was to be a bta only tank). - mini maxi anemone - green and red Monti caps - rainbow Monti - bubble gum digi - sunset monti - yellow and black sun corals - dendro - utter chaos zoas - green/red bowerbanki - jack-o'-lantern leptoseris - branching psammacorra - space invader pectinia - a green platygyra? - darth maul porites - a two tone red streaky chalice - sinularia - toadstool (The ultimate goal was to keep the theme green and red, I've diverged a little bit but that's ok) Maintenance: I typically do at least a 100% water changes weekly if not more (seeing as though it's only roughly 4 gallons of actual water volume) Long term plan: I've realized that this is probably not a feasible tank for a long term, I'll probably upgrade to the 13.5 gallon version eventually. I haven't had an issue with nutrient control or algae due to my weekly water changes. The one thing I am concerned about is the size of the maroons (however they are couch potatoes and rarely leave their btas, only to eat and attack my hand lol). All I know is it's pretty difficult to chose a favorite between this system and my 2.5 gallon. Here are some pictures: DSLR pic under a whiter spectrum: Blue spectrum with aquariclip: Top down with DSLR: Macro of the lighting:

    Clownfish Sick?

    Hello, I was wondering if I should be concerned about the behavior of my Picasso clown. I have a Fluval Evo 13.5 that has been running for give or take 2 months. I am new to the Saltwater community but have several Freshwater tanks that have been running for a year plus. Anyways... For clean up crew, I have 2 turbo snails, two Scarlet Hermit crabs, and one Skunk Cleaner shrimp, who recently molted successfully. They have all been in the tank for give or take 3 weeks. Around that same time introducing cuc, I bought a smaller teardrop percula clown and he has been doing fantastic; normal breathing, eating everyday. I also have a Bubble Coral that has also been doing great. So I bought the Picasso Clown from my local fish store about 3 days ago, dripped him for about an hour and 15 mins, and he went in just fine. My water perimeters have been stable ever since I introduced inverts and first clown. No spikes in ammonia, salinity or nitrites. I am kind of a freak with testing my water, so I have been doing it every other day since adding any life to the tank. I have noticed that the Picasso has stayed in one of the corners in a vertical position, which is what concerns me. Like I said I am new to saltwater and don’t know if this is a warning sign. He does swim around a lot, and is eating just fine. There is a thermometer probe in the corner he chills in, so maybe he has decided to host it? Please help me out.

    "Nano" Clownfish

    I was wandering the aisles of my lfs during my lunch break today, and I saw what looked to be juvenile ocellaris clowns labeled as "nano" clowns. I was told that the store's supplier claims that they are a special breed of ocellaris that have been bred to stay relatively small, however the store had not had them in stock long enough to confirm or deny this claim. I've done some research and found a few threads on other sites mentioning something similar, but they were all several years old and inconclusive. Is this a new (real) thing? I suspect that they may just be very young, run-of-the-mill ocellaris clowns. Anyways, I picked one up out of curiosity (they were fairly cheap) and I'll try to remember to update down the road. So far it has been eating well, though it looks a bit thin. Hopefully it turns out alright. That's a U.S. dime for scale, about 18mm across.
  22. Just bought a clown fish a couple of days ago. Hes wildly / aggressively swimming at the very top of the tank near the surface very quickly into the powerhead current - all day, all night long. checked my ammonia, its at 0. I also did a 30% water change this morning just in case - hes still doing the same thing. My ph is low at 8, and historically its never been above 8. (Which tells me I have too much carbon dioxide) I opened all the windows and have an open top tank - Im thinking maybe my apartment has low oxygen. However with the window open all day long - Im not sure I think its that anymore. Any ideas? Hes only eaten one pellet this morning - didn't touch the others. I'll check if he eats tomorrow. Hes my only fish in a 20 gallon tank. Tank is roughly 7 months old. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHAcE_urs0c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gd2KNLBArAc

    red spot on Clownfish

    Hello, beginner here to this hobby. Had my clown in QT for 3 weeks and has been in my tank for 1 week. Noticed this red mark on him. He has been eating. All of my parameters are fine and he has been eating. Just noticed the mark on him a few days ago. Need help identifying and if I need to take action. The red blemish is on the lower part of face on the white marking. The mark has not spread or got worse. Tank has been cycled for about 4 weeks now . While in QT medicated with General Cure only.
