  1. Dear co-Reefers, First of all, let me introduce myself. My name is Harmen, I am from the Netherlands, living in a historical city called Zwolle and I have been lurking here for quite some time. I am really inspired and baffled with the things you come up with and what you guys and girls create! Hopefully I can add some quality nano reefing here as well. Since I was young I've been fascinated with all the small creatures living on this planet, from the small poisonous frogs and insects living in the jungles, to the nano fishes and other inverts living in and around the great (and small) reef banks in the world. Since I visited the aquariums in the zoo of Berlin in 2016, with some great smaller reef tanks, it was my definitve confirmation I wanted to be part of this world. Luckily there was a LFS only a few miles away from my home, so it was not hard for me to get over the threshold and start something for my own. Because I am fascinated by the small animals living in the sea and my appartement providing me space for only a small tank, I decided to give it a go. In december 2016 I started of with my first reef tank, a Blue Marine 125 (liters) and simply enjoyed the small things that came from the live rock and the animals that fed from it, especially my little fellow blue legged hermit crab and different kind of dwarf angelfish. Since then, I ran all kind of tanks, last now a Superfish 80, which I converted to a saltwater tank with an 4x24w t5 ATI Sunpower and Real Reef Rock. But for me the RRR doesn't feel like the real deal and I miss the 'hunt' for all the small treasures hiding in some good pieces of live rock plus the lack of biological filtration giving me a hard time to gain a stable enviroment for the fishes and especially the corals to thrive. So, I hope with the experience I gained over the last few years and with the lessons learned, I can start a new tank from scratch, with all the good parts I like. This is going to be a slow and (hopefully) quality build of a natural nano reef tank, because the one thing I learned from the last years is to be patience and work with quality elements and let nature does 'her' thing. For now, I only can show you the Aqua Medic Blenny, which I purchased yesterday without any of the technical equipment. I didn't realise the black acrylic partition was also not included, so I need to figure out if I can reorder one from my LFS. 😅 Next friday (March 9) I hope to get the stand for the tank, which I need to reinforce cause the original stand can't keep with more than 90 pounds. The actual Aqua Medic Blenny: And the stand I hope to get next friday: That's it for now folks. I will keep you updated and hope to get it wet before the end of this month! 😉
  2. Howdy y'all! I believe I may be one of the first to adopt one of these gorgeous little Starfire beauties and I figured it would be a good time to start a thread for anyone else who may/has purchase(d) one! So far, Waterbox has been very responsive in dealing with the only issue I have run into so far [with the 7g model], the included return pump. They did so by sending me a free Sicce Mi Mouse return pump to replace the ECO66 pump, this may or may not be the case with other tank sizes in the series. I don't think any of us can argue that these AIO cubes are very attractive considering the quality of materials, construction, and included accessories! So, without further ado, please join in on the conversation! Is it just another AIO? Do you have one? What do you think? Are you some weird-o lizard person impersonating a reefer?!?!?! Here is the manufacturer page for reference: https://waterboxaquariums.com/cube/

  4. 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

  6. Hey everyone! My name is Matt, I live in beautiful Charleston, SC. This is my third build and the largest tank I’ve owned to date. I’ve been a fan of this forum since I started in this hobby in 2015 and felt like it was the best place to document my new build! So here we go. Picked up a rimless 50g SCA in August from a friend who was upsizing and finally got it up and running on 8/25/18. Wanted to go for a minimalist scape with some decent negative space for the corals to eventually grow into. I plan on doing a mixed reef with a decent amount of SPS and since I’m totally mesmerized by movement I’ll be loading up on Euphyllia. I feel like torches and hammers bring drama to an aquascape but also really like the contrast of encrusting corals like cyphastra and of course the colorful Acros branching all over.. With any luck and probably a ton of help from the NR community I’m hoping to make that vision a reality. Stats: Tank: SCA rimless 50g Starfire Glass Light: EcoTech XR-15W G4 Pro Skimmer: Reef Octopus 110S Liverock: BRS Reef Saver Sand: Caribsea Fiji Pink Salt: Brightwell NeoMarine ATO: IceCap Doser: Jebao iPhone photos don’t really show as much depth from the front as there is in person but you get the idea. Main Scape With the Fiji Pink (really dirty glass) Top down View from the couch 😁 Thats it for now, I plan to start updating this thread weekly. Cheers! Matt

  11. I have a small rimless cube tank for sale, has some scratches; cube's dimensions are ~18x18x18, not drilled, black silicone. I don't have the time to drill it and add an external overflow or as I was planning, use it as a refugium or RODI reservoir for a sytem I'm slowly putting together so letting it go. $50 local pick up in San Francisco CA. Second is a 5 gallon Fluval SpecV peninsula style, also glass; has the stock LED light $50, also local pick up only. I'll try to get some pictures later in the day.
  12. Edit - 10/22/2017 - A new plan based on cost and fit, but first, a new theory. The Previous Plan: A 25g Cube with a custom refugium, using AI Prime HD's and various other malarkey. Why a new plan: Since coming back with a renewed interest and wallet for nano/reefing, I've been reading a lot. Mostly about the revolution of LED lights since they were a few thousand for a questionable product, PAR levels and requirements, and refugium-only nutrient/phosphate filtration. Over the past couple weeks, the wife and I have been reading, discussing, looking, reading, and discussing more. They say with age comes wisdom - I have started to think wisdom is patience as had I been younger I would of jumped for the 25g Cube tank and went wild with setup without planning. Needless to say, I'm being more reserved and patient this time around, constantly reviewing information. So what's this all mean? A good part of this post is me putting the idea down somewhere, where I can come back read/review it and further contemplate (Over some quality tea in the AM and scotch or beer in the PM). I'm looking at this project as both a personal experiment in control and perseverance. As a younger reefer, I was too apt to tear down and restart or move to a bigger system to such a level it was unsustainable. A lesson learned and the method that will be applied here is the following: Consistency, Naturalism, and recycling what I can from my 10-years-ago youth. So what is the new plan? It's three simple principles: First and foremost, we're recycling what I may have left-over from my previous setups, should those pieces still exist. I'll have an itemized list below. I had three setups. A 3.5g Picotope, an 8g Biocube all-in-one, and a 20g long prop tank with a 2.5g rubble refugium/bubble-guard that I custom built from a 2.5g AGA tank. I think there's an old protein skimmer and maybe even an old Metal Halide light that had maybe a few months of use before it was broken down and taken to my parents basement after college, and various other odds and ends. Second, we are limited on size and weight. A younger me threw caution to the wind and used a TV stand for his first cube, thinking it was a perfect solution. However, I now realize that 8lbs per gallon of water and a multiple of two or three of total water weight is a good number to make sure your stand can hold. So we're going to size down from the initial size of 25g and stay around 8-10g for the display tank. If I have a leftover Biocube, that would be perfect as I'll be doing some DIY to make it better than what an all-in-one can offer. More on that later. Third, I want to go for a no-water-change tank to increase simplicity of maintenance from a physical requirement and time-requirement. Yes, this is including a larger-than-usual refugium. After a lot of research, doing many chemical formulas, and math I believe it should be possible. I had this epiphany when watching a "New to me" tank maintenance video. I'm going to elaborate, or at least try to, the best I can. I believe the core issue I'm seeing is that the idea that water changes are all a tank needs is mathematically incorrect. Most people say "20% water changes are very important! They replace trace elements and chemicals that are required for reefs and fish while removing nitrates and phosphates!" Now, stop and look at that statement - Speaking from a long-term standpoint, it's totally incorrect. I'm going to try to break this down next. Why I'm starting to believe water changes are total bunk when considering the long-term health and growth of fish and corals: Let's start with a simple concept of a hundred gallon tank. Most people suggest 20% water changes, which equates to 20 gallons of water. Simple, right? Well, let's complicate this. Let's say (for the sake of example) every gallon of water was a complete molecule of nitrate. If we do a 20% change of this water, we're still left with 80 gallons of nitrate! While we're reducing this to ppm in reality, you're still leaving room for a continual build of nitrates and phosphates. You're taking less than half on a regular basis. If the amount of nitrates accumulating over the course of a week is more than 80 in this example, then you're fighting a losing battle. Now sticking with this same theory, people say that water changes replace essential trace elements such as iodine, calcium and so-on. Again, for the sake of simplicity let's say that in that imaginary hundred gallon tank has a bunch of corals in it. Every week, they use 10% of the total trace elements within the tank. Now, if we remove 20% of water and replace it, we've replace 20% of 10% from a total of 100 gallons. What's this mean? What is the point of this? Well, to put it simply, a 20% water change is fighting a losing battle. You'll eventually reach a null point where you'll be fighting ZERO trace elements and a level of nitrates and phosphates that are all but lethal or encouraging for algae growth. This is why I believe I've seen over my history of reefing an eventual 'mini-crash' or a sudden bloom of basic algae and a loss of corals/fish. Even with weekly water changes, there is going to be that eventual "Event Horizon" where a tipping point is reached. So how do we combat this: I believe tanks that run refugiums have a natural 'ringer' in their corner. The nitrates and phosphates are kept in check by the macro-algae. It's possible to have a near zero or sub-whole tank with a good size refugium and the proper lighting to support the growth and process of photosynthesis. Secondly, dosing or reactors are a requirement! It's the only way to keep up with the loss of trace elements and other properties we need to keep in check so that we run as close as possible to seawater's parameters. If you're running a refugium to it's full potential, and regularly harvesting the algae from it to encourage growth and providing the proper lighting to ensure the process of photosynthesis can happen as efficiently as possible. Second, a close monitoring of all trace elements and dosing to make sure they stay well within parameters. I believe if this is done, then the only changing of water that needs to occur is the evaporation of the tanks water and the topping off of freshwater that should follow suit. After all, that's how it's done in nature. Up Next, the new plan.
  13. Hey everybody! So I'm in the planning stages of upgrading My 17g nano aqua japan nano cube and could really use some feed back. Im planning on purchasing a Nuvo 30L because I love the way it looks and it will fit perfect on top of my dresser. Also my Allardi clown is getting bigger and i would love the extra water volume to add a another fish maybe as well as have a little more room for coral growing out. So my main question is how do I go about actually doing the upgrade?? Should I start fresh and run both tanks while cycling the new one and move everything over once the new tank is cycled? or will it be ok if I just move everything to the new tank right away. Thanks for the help guys
  14. Hi everyone,I’ve been interested in setting up a reef tank for over a decade now. I’ve done lots of reading and research. But time and money has always been a tight commodity. However, I’m about to acquire a 27g Marineland cube tank and stand for basically free. So I’d like to setup a small reef in it. I’m aware of the possible difficulties in starting a small reef especially for a beginner like myself. But I’m determined to make it successful. Money is tight for me so this project is going to be slow going. My plans after getting the tank home and cleaned up is to purchase some dry rock (as much as I can afford and enough that is aesthetically pleasing. Then some live sand (probably Fiji pink) and then some saltwater. I plan to then start the cycling process (maybe I’ll buy the bacteria starter or go some other route). I don’t plan on doing a sump (at least not yet). Eventually I’ll put a HOB protein skimmer as $ allows. My questions for the forum are advice on heater(s) and powerhead(s). Should I get two powerheads and set them on timers to alternate flow? I only plan to keep some fish, inverts, and maybe some easy to care for soft corals. No plans on LPS or SPS for a while, if ever (at least for this tank). I’m looking for affordable yet decently made equipment. Also, how about a HOB filter as well? Something that I’d run with carbon. I recently heard that adding carbon would reduce smell. Since this tank will be in my bedroom then that will be a concern. I look forward to your suggestions! Thank you for taking your time to read my post & potentially for replying!
  15. Available for pick up in San Francisco CA only unless you want to pay for full shipping cost+insurance 20x20 custom sump. My skimmer does not fit properly and decided to make a custom sump. $250 ideal for cube tanks in the 24x24, 30x30 footprint as well as other systems; my cube is 36x36 and I feel that it would also be undersized for my build. Sump has three chambers; skimmer fuge and return; features a sock holder.
  16. Hi everyone, A couple of weeks ago I was given a JBJ Intermediate 28 gal. Nano-Cube LED along with it's mature live rock, some invertebrates and a disaster of a hair algae bloom. I have zero experience with saltwater tanks, so I'm learning everything as I go. I wanted to share what's happened so far, get some help identifying things in the tank, and let you know that I am open to any advice people would like to share. The background on the tank is that the live rock, sand and inhabitants come from a 12 year old tank which sprung a leak; and everything was moved into the 28 Nano about a year ago. Survivors in the tank are 3 urchins, a sea star, 2 snails, a hermit crab, a small coral frag, and a super healthy looking aiptasia. We started by manually removing the worst of the hair algae (it was so bad it was coming out by the handful), moving the invertebrates and live rock out, filtering the worst of the particulates out of around 10 gallons of the original water, and draining and gently scrubbing the tank clean by hand. I tried to leave calcifying algae intact where I could. So starting with a clean, empty tank: I added 20 pounds of Arag-Alive sand, all the live rock (which I just set in the sand), and a mix of about 50% filtered tank water and 50% clean pacific ocean water. This is what it looked like initially: http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170910_191457187.jpg After the particulates settled, I put the inverterbrates into the tank, and later added a mixed dozen snails and hermits to help work on the algae. The water clarified beautifully, which is when I discovered the aiptasia (for anyone who's played final fantasy, this is definately a malboro), who thankfully had taken up residence inside a discarded shell so it was easy to remove. Next I figured out how the filtration system worked and discovered that one of the powerheads was not functioning; it's a three stage of which I replaced the mechanical filter and the activated carbon, and I was able to repair the powerhead. The Nano-cube comes with an Ocean Pulse Duo Wavemaker, which I have set on a 90 second cycle alternating the powerheads, no idea if this is good or not. The light hood of the tank has two separately powered LED sets, one for "Day light" at 14K and a blue one for "Moon" at 465nm. Again no idea what I should be doing with these, but I currently have "Day light" running for 13 hours per day and "Moon" turned off. I was told later on that my live rock should be making as little contact with the sand as possible for maximum water flow and to make little caves for critters, so I rearranged everything (and my wife told me I was doing it wrong several times) and finally wound up with this: http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170917_200912592.jpg Levels tested good on the tank water, so I added a juvenile Black Darwin Ocellaris a few days ago. He is a little hard to feed (trying both 1mm and 2mm PE Mysis pellets, and I just ordered some formula 1 flakes as well) since he never sits still, but he seems to be a lot less frantic than when he was first introduced to the tank. Not sure if this is normal behavior or part of the acclimation process, but as far as I've seen he spends all of his time hugging the glass of the tank, and none of it exploring the rockwork. On a whole, the water clarity is excellent. Hair algae is still growing noticably but not uncontrollably, though I am having to remove quite a bit by hand. One recommendation I received to help with the hair algae was to add a tailspot blenny to the tank. I've also received advice that I should add a maximum of 4 fish to the reef tank, would love feedback on that as well. Research is suggesting that I wait 2-4 weeks between adding new fish to the tank, what are people's experience with different wait times? I just ordered a protein skimmer, is there any other absolutely necessary equipment I should look into? Plans for future fish are currently: 1 Tail Spot Blenny (Ecsenius stigmatura) 1 Exquisite Firefish (Nemateleotris exquisita) 1 Six Line Wrasse (Pseudocheilinus hexataenia) With the ocellaris already in the tank, should they work well together? Any suggestions for utility invertebrates that could help out in the tank? Also, i'm taking my best guess identifying the things already in the tank: Some kind of tube worm? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170911_071712598_HDR.jpg No idea, and I haven't seen it since I took this picture http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170911_164315933.jpg Also no idea, but it seems to be growing on the live rock http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170912_113211043.jpg These are in several spots around the tank, and they flouresce under blacklight http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170912_122622046.jpg Some kind of starfish? I've seen quite a few hanging onto things http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170918_155642429.jpg This is the mature aiptasia I removed from the tank; I've only found two tiny ones growing that I was (fingers crossed) able to kill successfully. I think it's neat looking, is there any use for it? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_110157687.jpg Bubble algae? I'm trying to remove this carefully http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_110232295.jpg A neat shelled tiny snail my local shop gave me http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_181415261.jpg Banded Serpent Starfish? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_181524807.jpg Sputnik Pencil Urchin? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170919_184058569.jpg Soft Coral Frag, but which kind? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170922_104943343.jpg What kind of Hermit Crab? http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170922_105753824.jpg What kind of snail? (We call him the old man of the sea) http://degenerate.org/jbj/IMG_20170922_110013478_HDR.jpg Sorry for all the outlinks, but photo uploading was giving me grief. Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for your input.
  17. So I'm going to be starting the cycle on my 60g cube build this weekend and I had decided to give this product a try after hearing some positive results on the product. My understanding is this product introduces bacteria to break down ammonia into nitrite and nitrate, but does this product also introduce an ammonia source to feed the bacteria? Or do I still have to provide some source of ammonia separately? The tank has Caribsea Live sand, and new dry marco rock. I don't believe that on it's own, it would start a cycle, unless the live sand would kick start it. I had even thought about adding a couple chunks of frozen mysis with the MicroBacter7 to help it along as well.
  18. Hi reefers i have 10000 Lph pump i have used for my old 90g tank, im going to build 24*20*12 shallow cube , is it possible to use this return pump for my newsetup ? planing to run cheato refugium and couple of media reactors in sump,and im not gonna use any wavemakers for this setup , i believe my return pump will make enough water moment in main display. what you guys think about my idea ?
  19. Rock arrived today! This is my favorite part of a new tank! Couldn't wait to get home and out down the little one and take a hammer to some rock! Lol I am wanting a free hanging minimalist look with an aquascape that spirals upward a bit. Like a spiral staircase. Tank is going to be rock flower nems and encrusting/plating corals. And GSP, because every tank needs GSP! I still have a fair bit of rock, thinking about just rasing up the structure a few inches. Rock will be epoxied and stuck with acrylic rods.
  20. Hey guys! Reviving my old 12 gallon and it's going in the bedroom. Deciced to try black sand for this one and my first LED! Added water Tuesday. Can't wait to get this thing rolling!
