  1. Starting out with a dry, cheap 5.5g glass box. I’m trying to stay very cheap on this build using mostly what I have laying around. One of my favorite condiments happens to be whataburger ketchup. Fresh delivered today since I was out or this would have been posted earlier 😅

    (Video) Small All in one (AIO) aquarium

    Hello Reefers, I wanted to share how I built my aquarium3 years ago, I wasn't a Youtuber at that time but for some reasons I filmed most of the process and I wanted to share my experience with you. This built work flawlessly, can't complain much about the design, it works, but I'm always looking for improvement, I'm finishing another design, I experiment a little bit with the flow (for a frag tank). So this is part 1, wasn't sure if it's a good idea to split the video but there's so much to talk about, hope you like:
  7. Hi there! I’m excited to be embarking on the 365 Day Challenge with my little DIY tank. The plans for this tank are to have a little fun and keep it carefree—while hopefully still being beautiful—so I’ll be making this a ‘pest tank.’ Call me crazy, but I’m currently on an avid hunt for Majano anemones, and other undesirables that I find intriguing, but don’t want in my reef tank. Other livestock will include some zoas / palys for a pop of color, macro algaes, and other soft corals. I have yet to decide if a tiny sexy shrimp or hermit crab will be added; I’m going to base that off of how everything progresses over the next month or so. Now for some of the more technical details: The Tank - Thrifted cylinder vase (edit: about 1 liter of water) - AIO divider was created with a repurposed plastic binder, and attached to the vase using Super Glue. - The mesh intake cage from a powerhead is being used as a media basket, which the water from the display flows directly into. Pantyhose are being used as a makeshift media bag to hold carbon and GFO (about 1/4-1/2 tsp of each). There are also some ceramic media pieces in the back chamber; they too are secured in a pantyhose ‘bag’ to make removal easier if necessary. - A tiny fountain pump is being used for circulation. I made a little L-shaped arm using extra pieces of piping from other aquarium projects, and have covered the ‘return’ with sponge to slow the flow down to a manageable level (I would like to possibly create a little spray bar or something instead—I’ll tinker with it and see how it works). - The lighting is still in the works. There is a tiny reading light (not pictured) on the tank currently. I am going to work on supplementing this white light with blue and red LEDs this weekend. - an ATO will be added eventually as well. The Scape I’m keeping the scape minimalistic; I would like to have two little islands, but am still searching for my second piece of rubble! I’ll also be growing corals (most likely some GSP) on the back wall. I chose black sand for this little project since I’ve never tried it before in a reef environment. I just snagged one of the tiny craft-sand bags from the dollar store. The tank is so small, I used maybe 1/3 of a hand-sized bag. That’s it for now! Hopefully some of you will be along for, and enjoy, the ride! Cheers, Rain
  8. i am having a weird situation, 1st day of adding water to my 15G diy aio peninsula. i noticed that on the 3rd chamber (return pump) my water level keeps going up and down. i was supposed to put my ATO there now i am concerned the ATO might not work properly. the 3rd chamber's size is just enough for the pump i have.

    Real Reefer's 5g AIO DIY

    Helo fellow reefers! Hope you are well. Long time lurker here on nano-reef. Some awesome setups here. True inspirations. I would like to share with all of you my new 5g AIO DIY build. The Reef : 300mm (l) x 350mm (w) x 300mm (h) - Water level 270mm AIO box: 300mm (l) x 80mm (w) x 300mm (h). 1. Overflow chamber: 50W heater and some filter floss 2. Filtration: Seachem matrix , purigen and carbon 3. Return pump: 230gph / 880lph 4. ATO: 0.32g / 1.2L with DIY double mini switch or single switch with optical sensor. Circulation: Return pump for now. Still trying to figure if a MP-10 or Jebao SW-2 will work. Maybe way to big? Light: DIY 54W led build Substrate: Caribsea Seafloor special grade Rock: Single piece of dry reef rock Cabinet: DIY MDF Rock and sand cleaned in a RO / bleach solution for 24 hours. Rinsed with RO and then soaked in seachem prime for another 24 hours to neutralize the bleach. That's about it for now. I'll post a few pics of the progress so far. Thanks for following!!
