    Fusion 20...Overheating Tank

    Can't set journals to private, so let me just tell you in advance, this journal might be pretty boring. I'm experiencing slow coral growth so I wanted a way to date coral growth, and also a place to write down random reef related thoughts. I had a Cadlights 45G but it was a bit too much for me - water changes, fish and coral stocking, etc. It was more expensive to stock than I planned. My wife said I could sell my perfectly good 9-ish month old tank when we moved, so when we bought our first house I started shopping for a new tank. Here's a picture of that tank: I got a Fusion 10, but as soon as I saw it I realized I might have gone a little too nano. I found a Fusion 20 through Facebook a couple hours north of me, and the next thing I knew, I went from 1 big tank to 2 small tanks in the course of 1 weekend. You might notice that I'm not a smart man, or at least - I'm quite fickle and change my mind a LOT. The seller offered his liverock, so I took it too. I had to rig up my corals + rocks from the 45G so that's why you see an AP700 secured over 2 totes. Here's the Fusion 20: The 45G is gone, and now I'm left with the Fusion 20 & Fusion 10. Since I couldn't make up my mind which tank I preferred, I've kept both tanks the the Fusion 10 is my wife's tank in the bedroom. For the sake of continuity, we're going to say the start date on both tanks was 9/3/2018.

    SliceGolfer's IM Nuvo Fusion 20

    FTS May, 2019: Hey Reefers! Super excited to be sharing my new build here at Nano-Reef. I’m a long-time follower of this community and have been a saltwater and reef hobbyist for over 30 years. With family, life, and career, I have been waiting for the right time to start a new tank build. My last tank was way back in 2005, with a JBJ NanoCube 12dx, from NanoTuners. Here’s a pic of 12 gallons of Softy Glory, all that it was: Fast forward to 2018. I’ve been fighting the reef bug for 3 years, and I just couldn’t shake it. Work relocated me and the fam to the great state of Minnesota, and I visited some of the LFS’s in the area. I walked into a reef mecca in Plymouth, MN and was immediately hooked. I knew I had to have a tank. My supporting wife says, “You work so hard, you deserve this!” That’s all I needed to hear. So, what does a recovering reefer 13 years sober do? Scour the forums, learn what’s hot ‘n not, and then shoot on over to BRS and pickup a car full of reefing gear. BRS is 20 minutes from my house, and that’s just too darn convenient. Enough with the backstory blah blah, here’s my build: Tank: Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 20 Stand: Bush Furniture computer armoire matching my office furniture Lights: (2) Aqua Illumination AI Prime HDs with rigid mounts, running BRS AB+ spectrum Return Pump: Innovative Marine MightyJet AIO Pump 538gph Heater: Cobalt 75w NeoTherm Control: Ink Bird ITC-308 ATO: AutoAqua AWC Auto Water Changer Plus ATO ATO Reservoir: Innovative Marine 5 Gallon Hydrofill Flow: (2) EcoTech Marine Vortech MP10WQD paired in Tidal Swell Mode (TSM) Filtration: (2) InTank Media Baskets, filter pads, and a bag of MarinePure Gems for biological Nutrient Export: AquaMaxx Media Reactor converted into DIY Cheato reactor and Cheato Testing: Hanna, Red Sea, Salifert Dosing: (2) Jebao DP4 Dosers BRS Soda Ash BRS Calcium Chloride BRS Magnesium Brightwell Aquatics NeoNitro Brightwell Aquatics NeoPhos Fish & Invertebrates: Two Black Ocellaris Clowns - "Ace & Gary" Tail Spot Blenny - "P-Blenny" Royal Gramma - "RG" Three Gold Ring Cowries Six Banded Trochus Snails SPS Corals: Green Spongodes Purple Digitata Forest Fire Digitata Tubbs Stellata Red Encrusting Montipora Red Dragon Red Planet Red Setosa Green Tenuis LPS Corals: Duncan Superman Blasto Rainbow Echinata Dragon Soul Favia Golden Eye Chalice Ice Blue Leptastrea Rainbow Acan Red Acan Red & Blue Acan Bizzarro Cyphastrea Zoas: Radioactive Green Dragon Eyes Rastas Halle Berry Black Hornets Eagle Eye Armor of the Gods Everlasting Gobstoppers Sunny D Green Dragon Eyes Blond Blue Eye Pink and Green Agent Orange History: The tank was assembled over Christmas, 2018. Water was added 01/01/2019, all gear tested and configured. Water was brought to temp (78F), specific gravity set at 35ppt. Live rock was added 01/03/2019, and the tank was fishless cycled with Dr Tim’s One and Only and ammonium chloride. The cycle finished in two weeks, which I attribute to the rock and the bottled bacteria. Once the tank could process 2ppm of ammonia in 24 hours, it was time for a 75% water change. Nitrates were floating around 50ppm at this point, so I was happy to oblige. Knowing I was a day or so from adding my first occupants to the tank fueled the water change excitement. Future: My plan moving forward is patience. There are lessons I learned on my own, and from those who post journals here. My hope is to avoid failures, mistakes, or overlooking something obvious. I’m targeting mostly SPS in this build, but I’m sure Acans and Zoas will work their way into the tank along this journey. Current water parameters: 2019-05-06 Temp: 77.8F Specific Gravity: 35ppt Ammonia: 0ppm Nitrite: 0ppm Nitrate: 1.5ppm Phosphate: .03ppm Alkalinity: 8.5 DKH Calcium: 470ppm Magnesium: 1470ppm FTS February, 2019: FTS January, 2019: Setup: Live rock added and start of cycle: AquaMaxx Chaeto Reactor: Water Station & RODI: There’s a lot I’ve learned from this community. I want to start by saying thank you, seriously. Without your commitment to this hobby, and sharing information or lessons learned, there would not be this database of knowledge one can so easily tap into to build their vision of a perfect reef. Until next time!

    Started my first reef tank since i shut down my last one when I lived in LA. I am back in Michigan and have a new water box. Already had an algae outbreak and fought it off.

  4. New to nano-reef and looking for some advice from anyone with experience using the Current USA Orbit Marine IC Pro Dual LED 24-36 in. I’m in the process of setting up an IM Nuvo Fusion 20g. This is my first tank after taking a +10 year hiatus and my plan is to start out and keep easier to maintain soft and LPS corals, no imminent plans to keep SPS, but maybe in the future. In researching this light, which includes 2 fixtures, it seems to have PAR ratings that would be more than adequate and the coverage would be ideal for the footprint of this tank since almost all of the 24 in width would be lite (https://current-usa.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Orbit-PAR-Measurements-1.pdf). In addition to providing a decent light source that will grow LPS corals, my other primary goal is to reduce light spill. My tank is going to be in a main room and I have 2 small children, so I’m a bit worried about having a light mounted high above the tank with the little ones looking up at it. This is where these lights also seem to be a great fit since their included mounts place the light directly above the water, while still covering the full tank. Most of the reviews I’ve seen seem to be focused on older and less powerful models from Current. These seem to have the power and PAR needed to grow any LPS and probably some SPS in the top half of the tank. Downside is that the controller is just Bluetooth and not WiFi, but I think I can live with that. I like the AI prime HDs as well, but to get what I want I think I’ll need 2 of them which is going to be way too much power for a tank of this size. Also like the Nanobox Duo, but not sure it will cover as good as these when mounted a couple of inches above the water surface. Anyone have success with these? What am I missing? Is the disco effect terrible on these? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  5. HI there, I just add the water to my live sand and rock in my IM fusion 20 tank and turned on the pump and heater to begin cycling. However, (as you might have heard) the stock pump is really loud and headache inducing. I've ordered another one but do I have to keep the stock on for the few days before the new one arrives, or will the cycling process be fine if I turn it off (at least while we're in the living room with it)? THanks

    IM Fusion 20

    Backstory: So I started my first reef tank in July 2017 with an EVO12. On January 31, 2019 I switched over to an Innovative Marine Fusion 20 gallon. I found the deal on CL (came with a stand, skimmer, reactor, ATO and a bunch of miscellaneous reef stuff). This thing cost me what I would ONLY pay for the tank itself. Not a bad deal in my opinion. Since then, I've added a few new zoanthids, leathers, and a piece of SPS. I'm also pretty sure I'm going to order a dosing unit so I can cut down on water changes and just dose to maintain Alk/Mag/Ca and give the corals more stability. Through testing I notice that my Alk decreases to a really low number over the span of just 1.5 weeks. I want to also get into more LPS so dosing will be necessary to maintain stability. I'm debating between BRS and B-Ionic.

    Started up this IM Fusion a couple months ago. I think its going to be a mixed reef. Equipment Tank - IM 20g Fusion Skimmer - IM Ghost Light - AI Hydra 26 x 2 Wave - Echotech MP10w QD 2 IM media baskets Apex controler 05/01/2017 Livestock:
  9. After moving to Minnesota from Iowa last November, I am finally starting to put together a new system. My goal is to take my time with this tank and do things "right". My equipment is split into two categories "Things I have" and "Things I still need/want" The things I have: Two Koralia 850 pumps Hydor SmartWave Refractometer Instant Ocean Salt Dry Pukani and BRS ReefSaver rock Hydor AutoTop off (Not super happy with it, and I'm debating getting a Smart ATO micro instead but that is extra money) 4 bulb t5 lighting (2 blue+, 1 Coral Plus, and 1 Purple Plus) or AI Hydra 52 or both. The things I need: IM Fusion 20 tank 100 watt heater Ghost desktop protein Skimmer Algae Reactor Mediabaskets for Chemipure elite or blue or what not. RO/DI unit (something portable for apartment use. Looking at the BRS value 150GPD ) Water change bucket (heater, pump. tubing) The Algae Reactor will probably come from MarineDepot though I am thinking about adding an extra strip of red and blue plant LEDs to boost growth. I'm hoping the reactor will boost my pod populations as well. I'd really like to get my pods, and clean-up crew well established before I add fish. I've always used a protein skimmer in the past and they have saved my butt on many occasions but I am thinking about waiting to get it until a week or two before I start adding fish to allow for a break in period before the fish are out of quarantine. (I plan to set up a 5 gallon quarantine tank if space allows.) I've been working on saving a chunk of change so I have a decent budget, but I plan on taking things nice and slow. I have a few corals a friend has been nice enough to keep for me while I set up this new system; a Duncanopsammia, a small goniopora, a few zoas, and a turbinaria. No real fish plans as of yet, I know that I don't want clownfish, so I guess that's a place to start. Anyway, I gotta get the tank before I can get it wet, and then cycle time before coral, inverts, fish, and such. Thoughts and advice are always welcome, cheers.
