I moved in may of 2021 and upgraded my Waterbox 70:2 to a Fijicube 108 EXT. After quite a few mishaps the tank was finally transferred in early June. In the first two weeks I lost my Mombassa lionfish and and flame angelfish due to an Ich outbreak. As things started to settle in with the tank, I was at a loss as to which direction I wanted to take the tank. I ended up deciding to make large anemones and Euphyllia the focus of the tank, with some SPS (mainly branching acros) to round it out.

Well, well. Here we go again. I started the Lifegard Aquatics Crystal Aquarium AIO Clubs. I figured why not one for FIJICUBE AIO owners or prospective owners. Since it hasn't been one yet, I say we get this show started! Checkout https://www.fijicube.com there are a couple options as far AIO tanks go. I'll do what I did on the last thread and make a compiled list of links to member's tanks on this page, as a reference to anyone interested in these systems. Let's get this party started. And as always, feel free to discuss your ideas, builds, etc. Lets get rolling !. Please also check out the Lifegard Aquatics AIO club as well! We've begun to gain some serious track there! I look forward to seeing this thread going. Happy reefing! - Reefahbarra84 PS, this is what I've got lined up 😉
Ok guys this is going to be a fun one... after much thought and debate on that tank and theme I wanted to use for this challenge I went with what I had.I did not want to build out 3 tanks at once and a move coming up sometime in the next 2-4 months I wanted to keep it somewhat simple. the theme is: color & flower power and inverts... as the tank will focus on rock flower nems, mini max nems, zoas and any thing that is flower like and colorful. I had so many themes I wanted to use here i needed 3-5 tanks, eh that not gonna happen. Tank info fiji cube 18.5 peninsula such an amazing little tank return pump I just upgraded to the eheim 1000 a bit more flow but the same noise level as the stock RT pump. intake flow none at this time but that could change skimmer none I will do Wc and media lighting 1X AI prime HD and 3D reefing defuser- perfect light I will be running a low level BRS AB+ profile LR real reef rock making some DIY branch I might add after the move if it turn out well. ATO auto aqua micro I really like this ATO more the the big tunze and ATK I used it on my big tanks and never got around to the ATK still new in the box. Sand carib sea special grade. love this stuff. almost went BB but I love the look of sand so much. heater a small finnex heater with digital read out. might be something I replace here soon. temp control not 100% decided on this one but I am leaning towards getting a PM1 and eb4 or 8 and extending my apex for the long haul. or a ranco upgrades down the road: ~ gonna have @This guy is extra salty build me a media basket. gonna look and work better then the egg creat I was thinking about. ~Vca RGF I have the .5" RFG but need to get the real loc line so it will fit. hoping to keep Power heads out of the DT for this one. ~after/during the move I might build a Tsot stand for the little guy if I feel the stand I have it not working or does not go with the new house. ~ in the processes of making some DIY branch rock something I am excited about and wanted to try for years, however it will take 2-3 weeks to make and 3-6 weeks to fully cure . ~ DIY upflow ATS, not sure I will need it or not but I plan to make ( and Have all the goodies ) a ATS for AIO nano stay tuned. So some of you my remember this tank from a build I started a few months ago. tank only had sand, LR, and the nems. NO fish or CUC was just setting here, whent through a bad algae out break and was starting a red slime cycle. so I really wanted to be part of the FUN and getting a new tank in time for the dead line was looking slim at best that and the added extra cost of a new set up with all the goodies only to have in run in the basement mech room at the new place. and moving it seemed like a bad idea I thought the why spend all the time and money to only see it 2x a day in the basement fish room. SO I cleaned this tank up, let it dry out for a few hours, gave the rocks a good scrub clean the heck out of the sand and re-scaped. took most of the day but today is a slow day for me anyway. condiment pic : nice clean sand: new scape top down: front on: the Kitty is happy I am done messing with the nano it's here nap time after all in her fav. nap spot.
So I finally started my second reef tank and I’m pretty dissatisfied with tanks overall build and process. I’d like to upgrade from my 7g Lifegard full-view to something a little more high quality within the 10g area and these are the two tanks I’ve found. I’ve heard both have transparent back walls allowing lights from ATO’s and heater to be visible in the display. Is this true? Also, what do you guys think of either? Is it worth it to get either and are there any other options out there for a 10g-ish nano? (Besides the nuvo 10)
