    10 gallon coral equipment

    Hello, I have a new cycle cycled aquarium. I added two clown fish, 5 snails, live sand, live rock, a fluval filter. Also, I have 2 corals added in, and I will like to know if I will need protein skimmers or special lighting. Or just in general what kind of equipment to keep the corals happy.

    Used Tunze equipment FS

    Finally picked up my fusion 20 pro. I've decided to go a different route from my old 30L filters, etc. I've got a Tunze comline 9001.04 Skimmer available, in good condition, no cracks anywhere, functional pump, just needs some new airline. Looking to get $60 plus standard ground shipping. Can sort out details later. Open to trades for coral/ equipment . Also have the Tunze nano osmolator 3152 full unit, fully functional. Both have been sitting for a year in boxes. $35 Can do both for $90 . Open to trades, etc. Just want them gone. Also have a IM custom caddy for nuvo fusion 30 Doesn't fit my 20 . $10 PM , if interested.

    I'm new to the community (just starting up my first pico reef) and have been doing some reading - I've heard that you shouldn't go for a cheap swing hydrometer because they're calibrated to one temperature, alas I am cheap (in this hobby, I know, a fatal flaw) and looking for ways out of the extra fifteen dollars. It looks like brewers figured this out - is there any reason this wouldn't work? https://www.brewersfriend.com/hydrometer-temp/

    all in one tanks, experiment

    The Small Reef Experiment This is meant to be a list of nano(less than 30 gallons) all in one tanks to help me pick one out. All In One (AIO) means a sump is built into the tank. This will be a link to the specs i can find Disclaimer: I have not used any of these. a tank is only as good as its keeper. I'm trying to size out the right aquarium This is what I have found while praying to the google gods.

Planning to run a soft coral tank to stat and see if it grows. I'm planing to keep it low tech. Filter: Floss to sponge to bio medium. push as much marine pure into low flow area in sump, change floss ever other day. manual twice a day topoffs. I plan on stating out with just water changes and move on to dosing if my testing says so plan 1.this tank is mostly start some growing mushrooms and zoanthis, 2.plant to add green star polyp or Kenya tree (something hardy) to increase my load on tank 3. as bioload grows i will improve my testing and dosing abilities and become better at keeping stability in larger bio loads along the way i want to find the best nano all in one tank If there are any design flaws to avoid in any tanks listed please let me know Any other advise on picking between these would also be useful Please leave a list of any other equipment that is a must for a nano tank
  5. Outside of ADA's $180 surface skimmer, there are a lot of options out there. Was wondering if people had experience. This is for a low flow (sump-less) tank that tends to get a film on the surface (which then supports dust). Examples are... Amazon Link HOB add-on Another filter add-on (current choice) etc. Suggestions? Quality DIY build link?
  6. Hey everyone, Im returning tot he hobby after a 10 year hiatus. I am currently living in an apartment with residents underneath me, I travel semi often for 5-7 days and really want the enjoyment of a small reef tank back in my life. What is the best way to go about this? I am figuring Id need to have a sump in case of a power failure to not cause a flood, and automation for lights and feeding. Possible a float switch in another bucket, Any advice here? equipment, lighting for SPS? Is an aqua clear remora still a good protein skimmer. Help bring me up to speed please!

    10 Gallon Aquarium Setup

    Hello! I have just begun to get into the world of saltwater aquariums, and would like to get feedback on my possible setup and stocking list! Note: All these items are suggestions and thoughts, nor are final. This entire setup is intended to be under $350 or under, and would like to keep that with any setup. Equipment -Tank and Filter: Grreat Choice 10 Gallon Aquarium Kit -Light: Orbit Marine Led 18" -Heater: Eheim Jager (75 watts) -ATO: Custom ATO found on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/AutoTopoff-Nano-Water-Level-Controller-for-Reef-Aquarium-Auto-Top-Off-ATO-/172782246208?hash=item283a9fd940:g:UOwAAOSwmLlYB52i -Salt and Hydrometer: Both Instant Ocean brand -Powerhead: Hydor Koralia Nano 425 -10 lbs of Live Sand and Dry Rock each: To buy at LFS -Automaric Feeder: Ani Mate Automatic Aquarium Fish Feeder (would like to upgrade to Grasslin Rondomatic, later) Stocking I would like to be conservative with stocking, but still have a diverse reef. Here is what I will add, but in what order should I add them in? Fish: Ocellaris Clownfish CUC: Sexy Shrimp pair (I still haven't decided on what CUC should mainly consist of, but would like to avoid any types of crabs if nessesary) Corals: I would just like a few soft corals, both because of looks and budget restraints for lighting. A toadstool coral, GSP, and Xenia are what I've thought would look nice and fit in well. Being new still comes with questions, and here are mine: What should I feed my tank (staple and supplemental), and how often? I would like to use pellet foods, if I can. With my general stocking plan, how much water will need to be changed, and how often (a biweekly 1.5 gallon water change is what I think will be necessary, but I would like to extend the time between water changes as much as possible)? Will plain Instant Ocean salt supplement the tank? I thank you for your time, and would like to hear from you soon! - Generic Reefer
  8. Hello, My name is Haniya, I live in Brooklyn, and I'm happy a community like this exists. I've really been enjoying all of the beginner posts on how to set up nano reef tanks. I have two freshwater tanks, a 20 gallon and a 40 gallon, and those are thriving. I want to get into reef building for two reasons, one from an environmental standpoint as I'm a journalist writing about sustainability issues and I'd like to know more about how reefs are affected (and feel like owning a small one would help me learn about the needs of reefs), and the other is that I'm looking for a challenge. I know that freshwater and saltwater are completely different, and making mistakes with my freshwater tanks, I know that it can be a very expensive hobby. I haven't set up the tank yet, but I have bought most of the supplies. I figure before I set it up, perhaps someone could tell me if I should return something/invest in a different piece of equipment. In my design, I am looking to affix live rock together in a small 'Z' shape, and I've bought putty and superglue to make it happen. I also was thinking I'd start with SPS corals, sticking with a pink/purple-blue/orange color scheme, so any ideas on corals that fit that description that would also do well in a 10G would be appreciated! Eventually, I'd probably add about 10 Cerith snails as a cleanup crew, and maybe a small fish several months from now, but I'd rather get the tank as stable as possible before I do that. Here are my supplies so far: Aquamaxx Cuboid tank Seachem Labs 55 gal Tidal Filter on my freshwater tanks, I always err on the side of having the filter be a lot more powerful, but if this isn't the case with saltwater, please let me know! the other question is if the skimmer on the tidal would intake needed nutrients, and if so, what's the best way to resupply them? Sun Submersible Wave Maker Kessil A80 Tuna Blue and the gooseneck clamp for it Instant Ocean Salt 10 Gallon Since the tank is .8 more gallons than this box, I'm assuming I need to purchase more salt? Refractometer Heater & thermometer & Reef testing kit Putty and superglue for the live rock IC-Gel Insta Cure Cyanoacrylate Gel, specifically, putty is pool putty Live rock from Bulk Reef Supply 5 lbs of Tonga Shelf reef 5 lbs of Rubble reef 100 mL - Instant Ocean BIO-Spira don't know if I need this if the Bulk Reef Supply rock is cured dry live rock? I wanted to make this tank without live sand as I like the look of that better. If that's not possible, though, I can definitely get some. Thanks again in advance!
