  2. Since joining the Old School Pico Contest I've been feeling nostalgic and looking to set up a bigger reef system like it was 1999. Metal halides, T5's, Kalkwasser you get the picture. I've been thinking about an upgrade tank for sometime now, but had a hard time picking a system that I will be happy with for sometime that's inexpensive, bigger but not huge and easy to manage. I wanted the same ease of use that I get from my EVO 13.5 but with more space for corals,fish, and more room in the rear chambers. Most of the AIO's out there didn't quite check all the boxes or out of the budget. I will be keeping this build on a tight budget, but also try and make it as nice as possible in the process. That being said I will be using most of the equipment I already have or in use. My vision for this build will be lots of flow, light, and mainly sps dominant. I think it will be cool to have a nano still running metal halide/t5/led. It will be interesting to see colors and growth from all three lighting options at same time. I'm very excited to see this build come together, here are the specs. Tank 40 gallon breeder peninsula with an AIO insert custom made by @This guy is extra salty This way I get the best of both worlds, keep cost low and get the much needed space I was looking for. Stand Petco Brooklyn stand I will make a custom skin with pvc board Lighting Floating canopy made with pvc board T5/led fixture I made for my EVOreef 4-24watt T5 bulbs with a dsuny eBay led. 400 watt radium metal halide fixture. Flow Ice cap 1k Aqamai KPS Return pump TBD This is all I have for now will update as this build progresses.

    Pico Reef

    Hi everyone, I'm thinking of starting a Pico Reef project, but I'm missing information about this type of project, I'd like you to help me with this work by answering my questions: 1- Is it possible to create a totally natural saltwater aquarium? (without heater, mechanical filter, etc.) 2 - Is it possible to make a natural aquarium in these proposals with less than 1 gallon? 3 - Would you like to make an aquarium in these terms only for resistant corals? what do you think?
  5. So i noticed that an aussie lord I have is not as healthy looking as my other two frags, so I inspected around it for any Aiptasia. I noticed somethings growing on its side. Not really sure what they are, I don't see any tentacles, however I do see movement when my damsels swim by it. Some purple looking things. Also noticed qhat looks like the same thing starting grow on the side of my Frogspawn, which is definitely no bueno. Anyone know what these are? Should I be fine just dipping both frags, do i need to scrape these things off, rely on some critter that eats whatever these are? Any help and advice is greatly appreciated.
  6. Hello, I've been lurking here for quite some time while I planned and set up my tank. Excuse the mobile pics. It's similar to a reefer E-170. I took alot of time choosing and scaping my live rock which I am quite happy with, got some blue/purple mushies bottom left, 2 hammers, one back right doesn't get much flow but opens up nicely, I've moved the green one to front/center close to my elegance. My green devils hand is constantly moving and changing shape, the clowns love it. I got a nice frogspawn wall that I stuck in the cave and a white frogspawn on the top left. I'm not sure what the green coral on the rock over the mushies is? Can supply more pics for ID if required. CUC consists of : 1 strombus snail. 6 peppermint shrimp 4 zombie snails I will get a blood shrimp when they are available at my LFS, they got redline cleaners in but in AUD they cost $150 😞 Hitch hikers: Some tiny brittle stars? A selection of snails (turbo I think) Possibly 2 small crabs, kinda hairy, small claws. Hairy slug snail (no idea what it is, like a flat snail with hair) Fish: Pair of clowns Royal Gramma Flasher wrasse Carpet blenny Yellow Coral goby (deceased) female clown is an asshole... I do 10% water changes 3 times a month and 25% once a month with sea water @1.025. Im wondering what other fish I can add before I'm fully stocked, I like peaceful and colourful? Also with regards to coral should I take it easy for now and see what happens with my current colonies? Any advice really is appreciated. Thanks!

    5.3g Pico Paradise

    Hello everyone, Thought it was about time to get started on my build thread for my first pico tank. 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.

    Stocking a 40 Breeder

    Long story short I was gonna a IM 25g lagoon because of the AIO and the Dimensions, I always liked 40breeders but I don't have the space for a sump but I don't want a ton of hang on equipment. Then finally I found a product called "Fiji AIO box" which you just slide into the tank and boom! its a AIO. So I'm going with a 40 breeder reef. Equipment and stocking are below. Equipment -Tunze 9001 -Chemipure blue -Seachem Matrix -Poly filter pad -Ehiem Jager 150w heater -Micro ATO -Eflux 600 powerhead -Current USA marine orbit (Will upgrade if I ever want to try harder corals) -60 LBS of LR -40 LBS of Arag-alive Corals -Zoas -Toadstool Leather -Finger Leather -GSP (separate rock) -Blasto -Hammer -Frogspawn -Maybe a torch Fish & Inverts -1 Flame Angel -1 Yellow Corris Wrasse -Pair of OCC. Clowns -1 Watchmen & shrimp pair - 3-4 trochus snails - 3-4 Narrsarius snails -1 Cleaner shrimp -1 Tuxedo urchin Is this a good list? Is there anything you would change or take out? Any thoughts much appreciated.
  9. Hi everyone! I just ordered a sun coral and a white scroll algae from ebay, so I thought it would be a good time to start officially journaling my progress with my NPS tank. Here are the current and planned specs; Filtration; Aquaclear 20 (100 GPH) with activated carbon, Sun sun internal filter (650 GPH) no media, planned Aquafuge2 small refugium (2.6 gallon, unsure about GPH, filled with macroalgae and live sand). Nutrient export: Macroalgae, 2 x 40% water changes weekly Light: ABI Par 38 tuna blue bulb, 23 watts (generic reef pro light on refugium...it adds 120 par at 14 inches below the water level) Macroalgae (tank): Caulerpa sp (something feathery), White scroll algae Corals (Tank): Sun coral, black sun coral, Red tree gorgonian (in a cave to prevent algae overgrowth), Leptogorgonia purple sea fan Other inverts: Hermit crabs, snails, Bam bam (the pistol shrimp), elephant ear sponge (in a cave to prevent algae overgrowth), fan worm? Fish: Little Dude (the royal gramma), maybe some sort of cardinalfish? Refugium life; Caulerpa prolifera, Gracilaria sp, copepods, rotifers? Feeding regime: Going to start with seachem phytoplankton and zooplankton twice a day for the filter feeders, and frozen food daily for the sun corals and fish. Will eventually replace the phytoplankton with live phytoplankton mix, and the zooplankton with reef roids. Will also broadcast some live phyto into the tank water before bed. And here's a picture of the tank! And here are pictures of my plans. The first one is for the main tank, the second one is for the refugium; Hope you enjoy following along! Don't hesitate to give your thoughts on my tank 🙂 PS...this will probably take a few months to get fully set up...the refugium and the live phytoplankton are expensive to initially procure (though they are high quality and last a while). I will post pictures at least once a week.
  10. Hello Everyone, As I was reading through some of my suggested news feeds this afternoon, I found a truly interesting article on NatGeo which talked about the Stunning Creatures that are found under the thick white blanket of ice in the Arctic. Here are some pics from it - METRIDIUM SENILE - Sea Anemone Another version of the same species - You can find that article here - https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2018/09/white-sea-arctic-underwater-marine-life/ Cheers!

    Clownfish dogging/nipping at corals

    Hi guys. So I have two clowns in my tank. A black ice and a da Vinci. Recently I noticed the da vinci (which is the smaller of the two) kind of digging and nipping at corals in my tank. I have acans,candys, and a scoly. He hits all three up. Anybody have this problem? He also nips at the rocks too. He’s starting to piss me off! What should I do?

    Coral recessing

    Hey guys not sure what’s up but some of my corals look like they’ve been getting munched on (at the base of my Duncan’s for example), and acans receeding and lost one. I have no fish on my tank. I have 3 nassarius snails, 2 reg snails. The only thing moving about are copepods. There are a bunch of them in the tank as nothing eats em. In the tank is Purple tipped frogspawn, Acans, rock nem, Aussie Duncan, Duncan’s, 3 baby scolys, baby clam and a mushroom I just picked up (noticed The base of corals before adding the mushroom). I dip everything in Coral Rx multiple times. I am going to put both affected corals in some seachem revive tonight for about 10-15 min. Then put the scolys, shroom in a diff container and use rx on em (newer). sat another dipping? When I do my Dipping rn I will be taking out some sand bcs I eventually want to go bare bottom so I can see anything unusual. Stats: 78 F, 1.025, 8.5 dKH, 400-420 Ca, 1350-1400 Mg, P04 0.03-0.1. Dose daily and feed 1-2x per week never had any problems with anything. Super confused. Thanks for any help!

  19. With my 29 Gallon Biocube running for about two months, and stocked with most (if not all) of the fish I will ever have, I would now like to know what my best options for corals are. I currently have 3 Zoa Frags and a Xenia in there, all of which seem to be doing well. My question is, what would be a good start to add right now. Along with the basic power compacts, the previous owner also installed 5 Coralife LED Light bars, and zip tied a Finnex LED Strip to the lid (half actinic, half white). What should I start putting in to bring decent coverage across the rock, and what can I add in the future? Thank you!

    Coral candidates for my Nuvo 20

    So while my rocks are curing, I figure I should do some livestock planning. After much research, I already figured out what fish I'm going to get. But I would love to get some input on selection of corals. I really want a BTA for my ocellaris clowns but otherwise I'm open to suggestions. Also wanted pulsing xenias but apparently they grow like weeds (same for GSPs?) and will invade the space of other corals? So I gotta figure this out. What would be a good variety that can fit a nuvo 20 for a beginner reefer? TIA for the suggestions! (Attached a pic of my aquascape in case it helps with ideas...not much surface area for corals unfortunately but I perhaps less is more manageable then)
  23. Hello, I had a circulation pump, which stopped working a few days ago. I'm thinking to buying a return pump, because it's more cheaper! For my aquarium with soft corals how many gallon per hour would be better? Maybe 130 gph? Bye
