Hishman posted a topic in Aquarium JournalsGoal of this build was to build a nano 9 gallon with an AIO and sump that houses a refugium all while maintaining a very clean look. I selected a pretty big pump to avoid any power heads in the tank. I'm unsure the functionality of a fuge in such a small tank. If anything its for fun! Tank: Aquamaxx 9.1 gallon low cuboid Lights: Marine Orbit LED 24" Refugium lighting: LED grow light strip Pump:Â Sicce Syncra Silent 1.5 357gph Skimmer: TBD Media Reactor: TBD Heater:Â Lifegard Aquatics Pre-Set Quartz Heater - 50 Watt AOI: DIY AcrylicÂ SUMP: DIY Acrylic Livestock: TBD Â Â First renders of idea Â Basic plumbing diagram. First AIO is around 8.5"x10". It will be sitting on top of refugium that will be around 7"x15". The area where plumbing goes does not contain water and will house the air pump for possible future skimmer. Might T off the plumbing and run a reactor. Also will house power bricks for lights. Â Rough draft determining room and drain and return placement Â Â Aquascape Â Never too early to start the biological filtration on your tank. Adding dry sand in a couple days to also start growing bacteria. Used dry rock and dry sand and seeded with biospira. Â Â Â Â Next step is drilling the holes for plumbing. I have a 3/4 drain but might be upping that to a 1". My question is do i really need a bulkhead. If you look at the above the bulkhead wont actually support anything besides its own weight. It will just overflow into the AIO. TheÂ bulkhead requires a much larger hole than necessary since its not supporting plumbing. Ill be putting the drain 1/2 to 3/4' from the top. Does this sound okay since its 5mm glass and no hardline or even soft lines connected.Â Â Still required: - DIY acrylic aio and sump - Refugium light - Plumbing - Permanent oak stand Â Let me know questions, concerns and compliments
shiftline posted a topic in Aquarium JournalsI have now been keeping jellyfish for 6 months and love the little guys, I find them extremely relaxing and super easy to care for. My YouTube channel recently hit 1k Subscribers and I'm giving away a JellyFish Art desktop nano tank as a way to say thank you to my followers. This giveaway has sparked up an idea to do a How-to jellyfish series where I walk through all the needed information to successfully setup and keep jellyfish. I'll be updating this thread as I produce more content in the How-To JellyFish series and add tips along the way of what has worked for me! If you guys have any experiences with Jellyfish or question feel free to chime in as we go! I always appreciate sharing knowledge and learning something new. Episode 1: Setup and Cycling your Jellyfish tank. -It's extremely important to fully cycle your tank before adding jellyfish. Many companies recommend waiting 2 weeks, however, I would advise you wait closer to 4 weeks to be safe. - Adding extra ceramic media goes a long way into adding surface area into for beneficial bacteria to go -Using bacteria in bottle such as JellyBio Start, Dr Tims or Bio-Spira are highly recommended to jump start your bacteria cycle
