    Tony's IM Nuvo 10 Reef Journal

    Welcome to my Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 10 build! Equipment List: Tank: IM Nuvo 10 gallon Stand: Fusion APS Cabinet Stand Heater: Cobalt Neo-Therm 50w Light: Ecotech Radion XR15w Pro G4 with Diffuser attachment, and RMS Tank Mount with custom riser Return Pump: Sicce Syncra 0.5 Powerhead: Ecotech Vortech Mp10w Quiet Drive Controller: Neptune Systems Apex EB8 Power Bar WXM for connecting to Radion and Mp10 LSM Lunar Sim Module (I dont think I will end up using this on a tank this small) pH, Temperature, and Salinity probes Breakout Box with Float switch controlling a second Sicce Syncra 0.5 ATO Pump (Breakout box also controls a LED light strip inside the cabinet triggered by a magnetic door sensor) DOS peristaltic dosing pump set to continuous water change of 1350 mL a day. Other: IM In Tank Media Basket Upgrade with Filter Floss in the top cage and a Chemi-Pure Blue Nano packet in each of the bottom 2. Livestock List: Clean Up Crew: Dwarf Cerith Snails, Nerite Snails, and Nassarius Vibex snails Female Yasha Hase Goby Red Banded Pistol Shrimp ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It all started with this box of glass and this box of rocks: I decided to go with some Pukani Dry Live Rock and start out with as sterile of a system as possible. I soaked the rock in a diluted bleach and water solution for 2 weeks to remove any organic materials that might have been left over on the rock. After that I did a muriatic acid dip. I did about a 20 minute dip. I then let the rock cure in a bin in my garage for a few months in fresh water, doing 50% water changes every week or so. If I was going to do this again, I would dip for less time, with a more diluted solution. It is pretty crazy just how much the acid ate away from the rocks. I didn't take any pictures of this process, but to give you an idea of what I mean, here are some aquascapes I was playing around with before doing anything to the rock: And here is the first ever FTS: December 15, 2018 As you can see, the acid really opened up a lot of tiny little pores in the rock but it also ate away a good amount of the rock itself. I'm not saying I wouldn't do that again, but I'd definitely do it differently next time. Anyways, the tank finally got water in it, and got a Dr. Tim's fishless cycle going the first week of December 2018. Here's the Most recent FTS from the other day (sorry for dirty water, I had just finished doing a bit of scraping/cleaning): February 15, 2019 The first additions after the cleanup crew were a Female Yasha Goby and a Red Banded Pistol Shrimp combo I scored from Diver's Den. Here's a pic of the Yasha while she was being drip acclimated: I didn't get any pictures of the shrimp that were worth sharing unfortunately. And once they went into the tank they disappeared for 2 days. I'm happy to say though that today I was able to catch a glimpse of the goby coming out to snag a few Mysis shrimp I fed! She wouldn't let me get close enough to take a good picture without going into hiding, but I managed to snap this one: Well, that's pretty much all I have for now. I'll update with some more info tomorrow as far as future plans are concerned and hopefully some more pictures! I do apologize for the quality of the photos, I have a pretty old phone, and I'm not the best photographer to begin with - but I do promise to get better as I go. I know how much everyone loves pictures, and I'd like to have a nice photo documentary of this tanks progress. Thanks for stopping by! Please feel free to post any questions/comments/concerns. I'm looking forward to being part of the Nano-Reef community!
  2. Greeting N-R Friends! Most of you don't know me, so let me take a moment to re-introduce myself... I started my first nano reef tank over a decade ago, but it has been years since I was active in the hobby. Now that I am finally settled in and no longer moving around the globe every few years, it's time to dive back in. For reference, when I was last in this hobby, LED lights were only available to aquarists that were comfortable wiring their own DIY system and the NanoCube tank had just been introduced! At that time, I actually worked in the industry, so I learned a lot about coral and fish husbandry. Coming back now, it's clear things have changed. LEDs are now everywhere on the market and there are more choices of all-in-one tanks than I could have ever imagined. Amazing to see the growth in the hobby. Anyway, if there is anything I learned before, it was that planning, patience and moving slow were the most important attributes when building a reef. Remembering that, I have spent the last few months reading this forum and catching back up on all the things that have changed since I was last around. With great care, I have planned out my next tank, and just ordered all the supplies to start the build. I'd like to give a special kudos to @BulkReefSupply - their videos and BRSTV was a great resource for re-educating myself on the changes to the hobby. I just purchased my tank and supplies from BRS, and will use them for all future equipment needs given their great resources. Equipment: Red Sea Reefer 250 System (white) 2x EcoTech Marine Radion XR15 G4 Pro lights w/mounts EcoTech Marine Vectra S1 DC (1400 GPH) return pump EcoTech Marine VorTech MP40 propeller pump EcoTech Marine Battery backup EcoTech Marine ReefLink wireless controller Neptune Systems Apex EL Controller Neptune Systems DOS dosing pumps Neptune Systems DDR dosing containers Neptune Systems ATK auto top off kit Neptune Systems IO Breakout Box Cobalt Aquatics 150W Neo-Therm heater (primary) HMO-200 Finnex heater (backup) Bulk Reef Supply 4 Stage 150GPD RO/DI system Vertex Omega 150 Protein Skimmer Avast Marine 2L Vibe Zeovit reactor Livestock: Pair of ORA Half Naked Clowns Juvenile Yellow Coris Wrasse Juvenile Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse Red Headed Fairy Wrasse Starry Blenny Diamond Spot Goby Cleaner Shrimp Pulsing Xenia Neon green hairy mushroom Green striped mushrooms Super Shocker Orange mushrooms Black sun coral Pink Birdsnest coral Neon green torch coral Red Acan colony Leather toadstood Mystery green LPS Mystery green zoanthids Mystery blue SPS Red monti plate Random assortment of snails and crabs 60 lbs Bulk Reef Supply Aquarium Saver Dry Live Rock 40 lbs CaribSea Arag-Alive Reef Sand Red Sea Salt Mix Tank Officially Started: 16 August 2018 Current FTS (3 October 2018): Early Stages (21 August 2018): Tank Design Plan: I am planning to build the tank around softies, LPS, and a few pieces of SPS. While I appreciate the look of a SPS tank, there's something to be said for the hardiness, vibrance, and lushness of softies and LPS. For that reason, I plan to have a nice mix of all of the above. For fish, I'm going to do some active fish with personalities -- clowns, wrasses, goby, etc. In my previous tanks, I dabbled with some of the "fads" -- mantis shrimps, anemones, etc -- and I can safely say that all that stuff is out of my system! Anything that goes into this tank will be deliberate! In terms of equipment, as you probably noticed above, I am going to use a skimmer for filtration. I had great success before with heavy skimming and will pick up there, but am also planning to expand the filtration to include using the Zeovit system. BRS estimates my equipment will arrive next week, so pictures will come then. Then we'll start the long, slow, and patient wait for a cycle and curing of rock. Buckle up... we'll be here awhile. -Kristen aka KMitch

    Vortech MP10 Speed Lock

    Anybody know how to lock the buttons and speed dial on my MP10QD? I found a YouTube video that says to press and hold the "Set" button to lock the speed dial. It's not working for mine. I'm running Reef Crest mode. Holding the "Set" button does nothing! TIA
