    Bay Area Nuvo 10

    Hi all, and hi to the Nuvo 10 community! For the past year or so, I've been wanting a reef of my own, and I'm now addicted. I decided on the Innovative Marine Nuvo 10 for the compact size and transportability, given that I plan to take it to college eventually. As of the moment I am writing this, I currently have put the rock and sand into the tank, after cycling the rock for about 3 weeks in a 5-gallon bucket using Fritz Turbo Start. The sand is Fiji Pink, and the rocks are Walt Smith 2.1. I have the tank on the 10 gallon white JBJ Nano Cubey Stand, which looks really great with the tank. Equipment List IM Nuvo 10 Tank 10 Gallon White JBJ Nano Cubey Stand AI Prime HD (modded AB+ settings) Cobalt Neo-Therm 50 watt heater (best heater on the market) Sicce Syncra .5 Return Pump Vortech mp10wqd inTank Media Basket (Running inTank filter floss, 2 chemi pure blue nano packets, and 1 marinepure cube) Tunze Nano ATO (Not planning on running a skimmer, I'm running 4 MarinePure cubes in the second chamber) Aquatic Life 100gpd RODI unit Tropic Marin Pro Reef salt (mixes extremely fast) Tank as of August 16, 2019. No light or ATO yet.

    Do you dose your nano tanks?

    Dear Reefers, i'm interested to understand "dosing" for nano tanks, specifically if it is a mixed reef. Per my research and conversations with local reefers here, I learnt that regular water changes is good enough. But I still wanted to seek your thoughts around this topic. Any information / experiences is really appreciated.
  7. Hey guys quick question - Can you dose Part A, B and Mag with this product ?!? Seems as if this reefer got amazing growth with the stuff - and that purple cap wow!

  8. Hey everyone, So I didnt want to hijack other peoples threads just to ask, and although I felt like I could infer the answer from other's posts, I didn't want to jump the gun yet. Essentially I used to use the API GH liquid test to test for my alk, but I have recently got a Hanna dkh checker to start more accurate testing, and watched the videos I could on proper testing and what not. I had decided to start recording my Alk to see my trend in it. I noticed it drops .2-.4 dkh every 24 hours and wondered if its the corals or could something else be the issue? and if that drop merits a need to start dosing yet. I have been doing water changes about every 3 days since I started recording, to bring the Alk back up. the trend looks like this; 25g AIO 7.6 dkh 5/17 3pm 7.4 dkh 5/18 3pm 7.0 dkh 5/19 3pm 7.7 dkh post WC that night at 10pm 7.4 dkh 5/20 6pm (was unavailable to do test until later) 7.2 dkh 5/21 3pm I started testing my salt mix after mixing and I noticed my reef crystals was 9.9 dkh 5/19 for reference and i do 3 gallon changes. so another of my questions is if 8 dkh is a good number to shoot for? I noticed alot more coral growth now I am changing the water in response to dkh at or below 7. the thing that worries me is going much higher because I have a biopellet reactor and do not want to accidentally alk burn my corals, when I can get the biopellet reactor pushing my tank towards very low nitrates. my testing from before water change on 19th was 520 ppm Ca (API Calcium liquid test) 7.0 dkh alk (Hanna ALK checker) 1.0255 s.g. (refractometer I calibrate with fluid before all testing) 0-0.03 ppm PO4 (Salifert Phosphate test) 15 ppm nitrate (API liquid test) are these okay parameters to have? I use chaeto in a chamber, starting up biopellets, a protein skimmer, and water changes for nutrient export. my corals dont seem unhealthy, and I think since being more frequent with the water changes its helped alot with growth in my pocillopora and branching montipora. anyways, thanks to everyone who responds,
  9. So I've been doing quite a bit of research on using hydrogen peroxide and I think I'm ready to do it I've been battling green hair algae pretty heavily in my main display tank for a while now it's killed off all my smaller frags and my large colonies are starting to struggle. I feel like I've been out of point where I can't add anything new to the tank for a couple months now. I was going to use food-grade but I can't find any local source and and I see people have success with the standard 3% available. From what I gather I should start with one milliliter per 10 gallon but that really doesn't seem a lot especially with the amount of tank that I need to do. I can remove my rocks if necessary but I would really like to not do that method, mostly to not having a proper place to store the rock while doing the treatment. The store is also going to be another source of before and after so Brandon can add to his ever-growing collection of success hopefully. First let's list what I've done for the past 6 Plus months: Manual removal and scrubbing with a firm brush and toothbrush. Reducing feeding to bare minimum for livestock, which they hated as they are super spoiled. I run both carbon and gfo. Set up an install a sump and refugium. Been up and running successfully for about 4 months now Deep clean my sand bed Recently treated fluconazole, this was a double whammy as a fish purchased had a fungal infection. Some GHA got a little white but no effects that was measurable beyond that. Sadly the fish did not make it. Many many hours of tank husbandry and maintenance. Reduce lighting schedule and intensity. Sweat and Tears, though I think that's just raising the salinity... So now my goal and treatment going forward assuming I'm correct is: Kill pumps and Flow Manually remove as much as I can from area without water change. Target one section of rock with algae a day with 5ml, 45g tank+sump Maintain normal water change schedule, 15g once a week. Does this sound right guys, guru @brandon429 ? I do have an RODI system and I can make SW at home if I have to do a water change after each dose. Edit: Photos added, this is what it looks like 3 weeks after a deep scrub.

    Dosing and Water Change

    So eventually I am gonna start dosing once I reach a certain amount of corals.. My question is.. When dosing Alk, Cal and Mag to the correct levels.. will a water change be needed monthly? and if so do I re adjust my dosing since i have replenished what im dosing? Im new at this lol Ive read how to calculate how much to dose after testing but not sure what happens after a water change

    Prodibio

    Hey there guys, just wondering if any of my fellow reefers have used any prodibio products and how they played out. I saw marinedepot.com has the nano pack of 30 doses of prodibio (1 row of 5 every 15 days I believe for all the 5 parts to be properly dosed ) . heres the link of you don’t know what I’m taking about: https://www.marinedepot.com/Prodibio_BIO_KIT_NANO_REEF_Saltwater_Aquarium_Additives_Supplements_Bacteria_Supplements-Prodibio-PD02737-FIADBS-vi.html Thanks for any of your exp!

    Dosing with Kalkwasser

    Hey everyone! I'm looking into setting up a basic dosing regimen for my tank using Kalkwasser and my ATO system and perhaps moving to 2-part dosing in the future when the tanks needs require it. The tank is a IM 20 fusion (guessing it has about 15 gal of water in it). The tank has been up and running for about 10 months and has had decent growth throughout most of the past 10 months. However, things seem to have begun to slow down recently. Additionally, all the zoanthids have been struggling for quite some time. I've been pretty diligent with water changes, usually changing about 2.5 gal once a week, assuming this would be sufficient to replenish the tanks calcium and alk needs and falling into the lazy reefer syndrome of not testing but once a month. However, I tested the tank this past Sunday (3 days after a water change) and got the following results: pH - 7.85 Alk - 5.7 dKH Ca - 390 ppm I performed a large water change yesterday (I've always used Coral Pro Salt) and was able to bring the Alk back up to a more acceptable 7.4 dKH. I'm going to test again today to see what the daily usage looks like. Currently, i'm planning to follow BRS's recommendation of: Low Demand - 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of top off water and go from there. I've always been super hesitant to start dosing since doing it wrong can have such dire consequences. However, since the overarching goal is to start introducing SPS into this tank, this is definitely a bridge I need to cross. So, with all that being said, does anyone have any advice / lessons learned to get started dosing Kalk? Cheers!
  13. Hi. The motors of my Jebao DP-4 Dosing Pump are corroding. Of the 4 pumps/heads, the 2 that are being used for dosing vinegar are the only ones getting their motor pins corroded. I'm guessing that somehow, a little bit of the vinegar gets its way out of the head tubing and into the motor pin. Nothing is wet in there... So it must be very little or even some kind of fume, gas or exudation. Anyone experienced this? Any ideas of what could be happening? Also, if you are dosing vinegar via dosing pump, I would like to know which dosing pumps are you using without issue (let's say for a year+). Thanks.

  15. Hi everyone. I've been having some problems with low alkalinity over the past while (a month? Two months?), and have been posting about it on my build thread, but it's time to get a wider spread of opinions on this. My tank is a 2.5 year old biocube 29, biweekly water changes of 16l with RSCP. The tank has softies, LPS, and several types of macro. I tested alk a while back and it was at either 5 or 6 (can't remember). Oddly enough my coral all looked fine because it was stable I guess. The trend became that I would do a water change which would raise it 1dkh, and by the next water change (a week later, I upped my schedule to weekly from bi-weekly to try and keep up with demand) it would have dropped 1dkh. It was clear that water changes wouldn't be enough to keep alk up so I ordered Seachem Reef Builder to begin dosing. I measured consumption for a week and came back with 0.2dkh/day. I raised my alk to 7, and planned to dose the 0.2dkh/day to maintain it. Alk started dropping faster once it was at 7 though, so I started dosing more to make up for the new daily loss. @stellablue suggested that I keep alk at 8-9 for my LPS, so I raised it to 9. Now here's where it gets kind of weird. It started dropping really fast. Between doses I'm sometimes losing up to 1dkh. I don't think that's from the corals, it's maybe 50% LPS (not even probably). I just ordered a salifert Mg test kit and Kent Tech M (in case I need to dose) which should arrive next week. In the meantime I'm letting alk fall a bit everyday because the higher I keep it the faster it drops and the swings are really pissing things off (like to death ). Does this sound like a magnesium problem or something else? I forgot to add that my calcium seems to stay stable at 425-435, although I haven't tested it in a week or two. I can do that when I get home (out of town until Monday). I wasn't dosing for calcium because it wasn't dropping, but it was brought to my attention by @teenyreef that I should be dosing for both, so when the alk thing is sorted out I'll see where my levels are at and figure out how to dose. Thanks for the help
  16. Hi All, I had a viewer write in asking me what an Ideal PH range is for a reef and how he could go about raising his PH. PH is one of those funny thing not many test unless they have a controller.. then some seem to obsess over it (i used to!). I ended up making a video for the guy and figured i would share it as i kind of did a brain dump on everything PH. hopefully it helps some of you guys out.
