Hello Nano Reef I finally decided to pull the trigger and convert one of my planted tanks to a reef and I would like to document my progress/mistakes/help. Updated Equipment Tank: CADE, CB600, 60x45x45 (120L) Fixture: I'll be using an 4x24w ATI Powermodule (because I already have it). Bulbs: 2x blue +, purple + and actinic. Return pump: Jecod 6000dc Skimmer: Tunze 9004dc Doser: Coral Box wifi Reactor: Coral Box Bio Filtration: Marine Pure Flow: MP10qd ATO: Tunze 3155 Updated other gear Rowaphos Matrix Carbon Real Live Rock Quantum Reef Essential Mixed Macro Probiotic Salt Last weekend I took the tank to a guy who does commercial and domestic reef installations. He's drilling the tank for me and making a phantom overflow, a sump (65L) and he's going to wrap the rear panel with black vinyl. Can't wait to see how to turns out. It ought be done in 2 weeks time. A friend of mine had a epic 3ft nano reef a while back (Mike). So I'm picking his brain for advice as much as I can. I hope I can do the some here on this forum. Problem is, I don't know what I don't know. To rectify this I'm going through this forum reading heaps (really enjoying it), and I'm watching the BRS 52 week video series. I'm up to week 14. He skipped over sand pretty quick. I like the idea of black sand, but the BRS guy hints that it's not a good idea. Not 100% sure why. Anyway, I know people like pics so here's one of what the 2ft used to look like (my IAPLC entry this year) and one of my 3 tanks from last week.
I ordered a Jebao pump off Amazon and the seller shipped me a Coral Box quiet pump instead, claiming it's an "upgrade." Anyone have any experience with these? I'm trying to determine if it is a good pump or if I need to return it.
