  2. UPDATE: Most Recent FTS 11/12/19 (***The following description was back in July 2015) Hey guys so I've had my nuvo fusion for about 4 months now (3/15/15 start date), and things look pretty good so far from what I can tell. (Besides a Cyano problem, a little bit of bubble algae, and my nano tunze ATO flood malfunction) I work as an electrician during the day (11 years now) and a fish hobbyist at night. I have been into fishkeeping for over 10 years now and I've always wanted a nice nano salt tank. So about 4 months ago I decided to upgrade my small crappy 5 gallon salt tank to a nice AIO. I chose the nuvo fusion and I am VERY happy with it so far, here's what I'm working with.... Setup: (current as if 3/17/18) -Innovative marine nuvo Fusion 10 gallon -Kessil a160we (with gooseneck and 90 degree attachment... with the spectral controller) -Tunze Silence 1073.008 pump (used as an upgrade rather than using the weak stock pump) -Hydor Koralia 425 (powerhead) -Hydor Koralia Smart Wave (powerhead controller) -Tunze Osmolator Nano (ATO) 2.2 gallon kalkwasser mix -IM Spin Stream attachment -IM Ghost skimmer (protein skimmer) -Finnex 50 watt titanium heater -Cobalt neo therm 50 watt back up heat -Tunze Mini pump 5024.040_A (very nice tiny poverhead type pump for caves or bottom flow) -Power center by coralife (makes things so much easier to unplug...it's like my power controller center) -Custom caddy with chemi-pure blue nano, purgen and phosguard -10 lbs of live sand -8Lbs of dry rock Livestock: (Livestock has been updated as of 3/17/18) Tail spot blenny 1 Barnacle blenny 2 Royal Gramma 1 false clown 1 dwarf zebra hermits 5 turbo snails 2 blue legged hermit 1 nassarius snails 2 cleaner shrimp1 Corals: (corals have been updated as of 3/17/18) zoas acans blasto palys hammer candy cane duncan Favia Ricorida mushrooms Yuma mushroom Rhodactis mushroom Gsp Montiporas
  3. New project! After being out of the hobby for close to a decade, I came back in recently to participate in the current Pico Reef Contest with my volcano pico. I was actually also working on a custom 20g project at that time, which led me back to nano-reef.com in the first place, but that project never came to fruition and I ended up focusing all my efforts on my contest entry. If you want to check that out, here's my thread: Volcano Pico Thread. Anyway, my son has been asking for "Nemo" fish for quite some time now, so I thought this set-up would be another good project for us to work on together. Details: Tank: Innovative Marine Fusion Nuvo Pro 20g Peninsula (30" x 11.8" x 13") Stand: West Elm Buffet (40" x 19" x 27") Return Pump: MightyJet 326 gph w/ Controller (came stock with the tank) Circulation: 2 x Aqamai KPS Heater: Cobalt Neotherm 75w Lights: NanoBox Duo Plus M - Side Mounted (ordered) Some initial thoughts: 1. The IM tank is pretty sweet. This new version of the peninsula now comes with an upgraded pump and filter caddy, and it's great that it comes with a mesh lid and magnet cleaner. The manufacturer is local to me, so I just put in the order and picked it up yesterday. IM's customer service and responsiveness have been top-notch as well. 2. The West Elm stand is great because it fits with the rest of my home and it is the perfect height for my son. It's short enough for him to see everything in the tank. But still debating whether I need to reinforce it to support the tank (though it is super solid and made of real wood). 3. Not sure if I should do fuge or skimmer for the middle chamber of the tank. It's pretty small so not sure if a fuge is worth it. Theme: Minimalist and Sparkly Clean. I've always been a fan of super clean-looking and minimalist tanks, and I plan to keep it that way for this one (maybe even more so this time around). Probably keep the scape pretty minimal as well. Current Stocking Plans: 2 percs or ocellaris (haven't decided yet) and oodles and oodles of bounce and jawbreaker mushrooms. I want em all! Just kidding. TBD, but likely keeping my stocking pretty light as well. Also, everyone seems to have a BTA nowadays, so why not me? Feedback welcome. Thanks for stopping by!

    SaltyTank's 40G Mixed Reef

    Hello & welcome to my new reef journal! I’m a SoCal nano-reef enthusiast that’s been in the hobby 4 years, and I’m finally committing myself to starting this journal – mostly for my benefit, not yours😊 No seriously though, I need help holding my bad habits in check and hoping you will all help me achieve my goal. My goal is that 1 year from now my 40-gallon mixed-reef tank will be a living masterpiece, and so appealing to me that I will have no impulses to stick my hands in the water to move/add anything. That said, here’s some more background and visionary objectives: SETUP: Tank: 40-Gallon Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion (24” x 20” x 19”) Lighting: Radion XR15w Gen-4 Circulation: (1) IM stock return pump w/2 spin stream nozzles; and (2) Icecap 1k Gyre Heater: None (controlled room temp) Cooling: Desktop fan controlled by Inkbird thermostat/temp controller Mechanical Filtration: (1) Aquamaxx HOB 1.5 skimmer; (2) filter floss Bio Filtration: (1) RealReef dry rock; (2) Caribsea sand; (3) CerMedia Marinepure biofilter balls Chemi Filtration: RedSea carbon Top Off: Tunze Osmolator 3155 Dosing: manually, Brightwell Reef Code A + B & magnesium BACKGROUND: I’m a middle aged father whom loves to drink red wine while staring up-close at my fish tank excessively. I grew up by the ocean and first fell in love with tropical fish & corals when I got scuba certified in Indonesia circa 2000. Since then I’ve done many dives around the world and find myself more interested in biodiverse macro reef-scapes than shipwrecks and cageless bull shark feedings. Also, I’m a photo enthusiast and art aficionado, which I aim to incorporate into my reef keeping. My wife gifted me my first tank about 4 years ago (a 6-gallon JBJ AOI), and pretty sure it’s her biggest regret of our long-standing relationship. I'm now about 1 year into the current setup. VISION: If I were shrunk down to be a little 2 inch scuba diver and my wife threw me into my tank, I want to be surrounded by colors, contrasts, textures, movement, and dimension. I’ll want to swim down, up, around, through, under, and over copious amounts of corals, and be accompanied by a few fish friends that will join me without fearing they’ll bully or eat me. OBJECTIVES: Over the next 12 months, I’ll try to post progress updates every 1-2 weeks. Additionally, I’ll try to engage you all into helping me fill in the holes with new coral suggestions. Since I like to go to the local LFS’s frequently, maybe together we can make this an interactive team effort - although, let me try not to get ahead of myself here. So for now I’ll share some relevant pics and focus on following through with a 2nd post sometime soon. P.S. I have a lot of bad habits to work on... - hands in the tank frequently - impatiently making changes, expecting expedited results - providing poor instructions for friends to care for tank while on vacation - overfeeding and then underfeeding - vindictively taking vengeance on hungry hermits that snatch food from feeding acans

  6. Hello N-R.com family, Last you heard from me I was building a Red Sea Reefer 50 gallon reef tank, but I had to break down the tank when I moved and only recently had a chance to set it back up. Rather than going back to the 50 gallon reef tank, however, I turned that into a planted freshwater discus tank. My first love in reefing came from a smaller nano tank, and I lost some of the love as the tanks got bigger and more complicated. I finally convinced the fiancee to let me start another tank, and settled on a nano reef for my return. So pull up a seat and follow along.... Over the course of the last 10 years, I've had a number of tanks with varied success, and I hope to put all the lessons learned from those tanks together in this build. Rules of the road: Simplicity is king. 15 pieces of equipment just create more opportunities for failure. I am going to do the basics, and I'm going to do them well. Some (light) SPS. I like some SPS Corals, and I might try a frag or two that amuse me, but this tank will go back to my love of LPS, softies, and (hopefully) a clam. Fun, active, and healthy. I want my reef to thrive, the inhabitants to be healthy, and to have a tank that I can get lost staring at for hours. I settled on this tank and equipment after hours upon hours of extensive reading and research. I've tried complex systems like algae scrubbers, CO2 reactors, etc.... now I'm going back to the more time tested and proven techniques. That's not to hate on any of the other stuff.... it just became too complicated and removed the fun. My tank in college was very simple, it thrived, and it was a blast. Time to return to that....though with a little nicer gear too 😉 Equipment: Innovative Marine NUVO Fusion Pro Peninsula 20 Gallon tank Kessil A360X light with wifi InTank media basket Aqamai KPS Wavemaker pump eShopps Nano Protein Skimmer ZeoVit dosing schedule Cobalt Aquatics Neotherm 75W heater Aqua Gadget Spin Stream Nozzle XP Aquatics Duetto ATO system Livestock: Pair of DaVinci Extreme Clowns Pair of Yasha Gobies Six Line Wrasse Pistol Shrimp Cleaner Shrimp Blue Maxima Clam Blue Porcelain Crabs (x3) Aussie Golden Eye Chalice Branching Cyphastera Green Acans Purple Favia Rainbow Acans Watermelon Acans Weeping Willow Toadstool Orange Ricordia Mushrooms Misc. Green & Blue Zoas Purple Hairy Mushroom Superman Monitor White Zombie Zoas Assorted Acropora and Millipora Green Texas Slimer Baby Blue Bowerbacki Neon Green Birdsnest 20lbs Fiji Pink Sand 20lbs Live Rock from KP Aquatics I also use Tropic Marin Pro Reef Salt because I like that they use pharmaceutical grade materials in the salt. For filtration, I plan to run filter floss, carbon, and ZeoVit in the media basket. The hope is that I can talk my fiancee into setting up the tank at the end of our couch, so you can appreciate the full peninsula effect. Fingers crossed. I ordered everything from @BulkReefSupply this weekend and got notification that the gear will arrive Thursday, so pictures and more updates to come. I also need to build a stand for the tank, so it'll be a few weeks before we see water, but that's okay. Good planning leads to good results!

    Two Tanks, One Thread - 365 New Ocean Rock

    At the end of December, I pulled off what I thought to be my greatest aquarium feat; I talked the tank keeper in to a much larger (for us) aquarium. We found someone getting out of the hobby that had an IM SR80 for sale, with all livestock and equipment. The arrangement we came to, was that the tank keeper got to restart the tank, and to get down to three tanks. With that being said, we’ve spent the better part of the last two months selling off livestock, donating corals to two school marine clubs, and planning the start of this new tank. Our goal was to get the tank broken down, by March 1st, and by golly, we made it(I didn’t account for leap year - thank goodness for the extra day!). Over the last month, with the help of many of you here, I was able to talk the tank keeper in to letting us join the AIO 365 Day Nano Reef Challenge. The tank keeper and I both like the looks of peninsula tanks, and I knew if I had a shot at joining this challenge, it’d have to be a peninsula tank I set my sights on. After a couple of discussions/begging/pleading/promising I ordered an IM NUVO 20 Peninsula, for this challenge. Today, we spent most of the day, moving the remaining livestock to holding tanks, and completely broke down, cleaned and moved the SR80. It is now back up and running, but we will not move any livestock back until we are happy with the aquascaping, and know that the tank is stable. I will be journaling both of the tanks in here, but I know that only the peninsula 20 is eligible for the competition. However, it did not stop us, from commemorating the day for us, by starting two new tanks. I present to you, Two Tanks, One Thread. An IM Nuvo SR 80, and an IM Nuvo Peninsula 20.

    30l Build

    Hey everyone! I have been wanting to setup a reef tank for many years. Recently, my work allowed me to build a reef for a display (red sea 750xxl) and since then I have been eager to start my own. As a fairly new reefer, I cannot describe how important forums like this were for me so I have decided to become part of the community and document the progress of my new build: innovative marine 30l. Today I got a shipment of supplies from BRS (love this company, see picture below)! Very exciting but still have another shipment coming next month after my rock is finished curing. I got the 30l package from BRS but upgraded the sand and several other things from stock. I will be posting periodically as major updates occur. Please ask me any questions and provide any insight you can. Knowledge is power in this hobby! I also built my own stand using a vanity obtained from local hardware store and 2x4 construction. If you would like input on how to build a stand like this let me know.

    Lagoon 25 | SPS Reef

    Hello everyone, I've been reading these forums for inspiration ever since I joined the nano world, and there are so many great threads that gave me plenty of ideas that I wanted to start my own, and hopefully - without being big headed - I can give someone else a little inspiration one day from this. For a little background on myself, I used to run a Reefer 525 on the KZ ZEOvit method until around 8 or so months ago. I shut that down due to mostly running costs, and I never felt like I was getting anywhere with it. My style of tank is definitely a deep (front to back) but shallow tank that has a nice aspect ratio - so I have no idea why I bought the Reefer because it wasn't any of those things at all. The Innovative Marine Lagoon 25 had been on my radar for some years now but being in the UK, we have only one or two suppliers I think. Right when I was shutting the Reefer down, the main supplier had stock of the Lagoons in on their first ever shipment, but I missed out on them because being an indecisive **** I didn't pull the trigger quick enough. I needed a tank to keep my clownfish and a few corals in because I wasn't prepared to let those go for sentimental reasons, so I ended up with a Fluval Evo 13.5. That lasted maybe 6 months until last week when that same supplier had their second shipment in. This time I didn't miss out and ordered the Lagoon straight away! So without further ado, here is my new setup which I intend to keep for a lot longer than the Fluval or the Reefer. I'll detail the planned upgrades and methods in a further post.

  12. Hey everyone! I am new to the forum and thought what better way to introduce myself than to start a journal for my nano! A little bit about me, I am a graduate student at the University of Michigan and will be graduating in 2019. I am originally from Chicago - hence the username! I have been in the hobby for about 10 years and have had tanks from FOWLRS to full blown reefs. I have always wanted to start a journal for one of my tanks but never really got around to it. As a graduate student this has made things a little more difficult. But I recently came across a deal I could not pass up that is perfect for my situation! The goal is to document everything in this thread. Let me introduce to you my new nano! It is an IM 10 gallon fusion with the following equipment: inTank Media basket (just made the switch from a custom IM media basket) MP10wes vortech Ghost Desktop skimmer Tunze nano ATO AI prime Cobalt heater with a finnex temp controller IM spin stream The tank currently has 2 clowns, a starry blenny and a mix of SPS and LPS. Here are a couple photos! Pardon my cell phone photos, I am working on getting a better camera.. Looking forward to meeting all of you! October 2019 - IM 25 gallon fusion: September 2018: May 2017:

    Fishsticks Nuvo 10 build!

    HI REEFERS! Long time reader first time poster. I am starting a 10 gallon reef tank and want to share my ups and probably many, many, many downs! I have had reef tank for over 6 years, and still feel like a noob. I went with a Innovative Marine fusion Nuvo 10. I want to make it an anemone and clown fish tank but for now I will temporary house two Clown fish as well as a Pink Streak Wrasse. This is only temporary until I get my algae out break in my 20 gallon tank under control.

I’ve been lurking here since...2008? That can’t be right. I was, frankly, too intimidated by all of you incredibly talented humans to attempt a tank journal when I started my IM Nuvo 10g a couple of years ago, but since I woke up one morning last month and saw that my checking account had been stimulated, I figured I’d give it a go this time. Background My current tank is yet another @teenyreef inspired IM Nuvo Fusion 10g, and has been running in its current iteration for the past year and a half plus. It is perilously close to fully grown in - the coral have been skirmishing for some time now, and I fear a declaration of war from the Euphyllia is inevitable. I could start fragging and trading away corals...OR I could upgrade the tank. The stimulus check made this decision incredibly easy. I’m most proud of the frogspawn - grown out from two to eleven heads Goals Get more color in the tank - my current tank is very green and teal dominated. I’d like to get a better mix of harmonious colors, without going full cosmic bowling Start keeping SPS - to help with the above, I’m hoping to stock some Montipora and Leptoseris and will be dosing for the first time ever. I’ve gotten decent growth in the 10g by simply relying on water changes, but I’d like to take a more hands-on approach this time and challenge myself a bit more. Work on my photography - I have a decent amount of photography experience, but I’m simultaneously unhappy with my aquarium photos and too lazy to get the dslr out. I usually end up taking snapshots with my iPhone. I’m hoping that this journal will give me a reason to put the work in. In researching this tank upgrade, I came across @schgr.cube and @Pandy's tank journals, and found their work to be incredibly inspiring. Hopefully I can make some progress on this front!
