  1. 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:

    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.

  5. I finally found the time to set up this tank and am fairly exited. I hope this tank will turn out to be a clownfish and BTA dominated tank. I also will try to update every week with a full tank shot or a video of the tank Equitment- 2 kessil a80s 2 hydor korolia nano powerhead ice cap ato current fish- pair of clownfish geometric Pygmy perchlet Current corals- acans lobophlia current inverts- 2 assorted snails 4 hermit crabs 1 emerald crab Planned livestock- growing out the acans BTA cleaner shrimp so after all of that boring info lets get this tank started!
  6. FTS/Top-down progression! March 31, 2018: March 2018: February 2018: January 2018: October 2017: July 2017: *Disclaimer: the photo quality seemed a lot better on my phone now that I'm seeing them on the computer. Sorry for the bad quality! For older photos and set-up, please keep reading! Hello and thank you for stopping in! I hope to use this as a diary for myself, but I so enjoy seeing other Lagoons that I thought I would document mine for others to see also. Let me preface this by introducing myself! I'm a Canadian reefer and I share a common addiction with many of you. I first ventured into saltwater reef tanks in the spring of 2016 with a used (and a then-10-year-old-unit!!) JBJ Nano Cube 12g and I was instantly hooked. In January, so a little over a year ago now, I had decided on an IM Lagoon 25g as being the perfect next step for me, keeping the 12g running. Sadly, the old 12g finally kicked the bucket in the spring of 2017. Really, the hood/fans/lights went on it. Could have been an easy fix, but it was a better decision at that time to take down the 12g and put my focus into making the 25g the best I could make it! I kept and used everything in the 12g except my dear clown, which I sold to a great home. She loved Xenia! With that out of the way! Whew. I'd like to start by putting up all of the word stuff and then a photo progression. Let's begin... It all began on a wintery January 21, 2017: Tank: - Innovative Marine NUVO Aquarium - Fusion Lagoon 25 Gallon (no sump) - DIY stand (sort of, you'll see) Flow: - Stock pump - Jebao PP-4 Wavemaker Heaters: - Eheim Jager TruTemp Submersible 50W - Fluval M50 Submersible (50W) Light: - Aqua Illumination Prime + mounting arm ATO: - AUTOAQUA Smart ATO micro + 2g reservoir Water: - Purchased by 5g bottles of RO at store, has done me well, but would like to upgrade eventually - Plan is to go with a 4-stage Spectrapure RO/DI unit. Just need to pull the trigger already and do it. - November 2017: I did it! SpectraPure CSPDI 2:1 Manual Flush 90-GPD RO/DI Rock, Salt & Sand: - Marco Rock (~15 lbs, want/need more!) Now at least 25lbs. - CaribSea Arag Alive Fiji Pink Sand (20 lb. bag) - Red Sea Salt (175g blue bucket) Switched to Fritz RPM, thinking of switching to plain Instant Ocean Misc: - Innovative Marine Mesh Screen Lid Kit (lol we will look into this later...) - Innovative Marine Custom Caddy Marine Basket (Nano) x2 - Stock filter socks (not in use) - Filter floss - Chemi-pure Elite, Chemi-pure Blue, Purigen and regular GAC on standby Since the summer 2017 I've been running Chemipure-Elite; in November 2017 supplemented ROX 8.0 carbon; February 2018 started using Purigen - Test kits: Red Sea Marine Care Test Kit (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH and alk), Salifert for calcium, magnesium and alkalinity - Refractometer: ATC Vertex (also use a Sybon); November 2017: after suspecting some salinity issues, I've been calibrating using Brightwell, Tropic Marin AND PinPoint calibration solutions Notes on Maintenance: - Weekly ~3-5 gallon water changes. Every. Week. No excuses! - Currently only running filter floss and a little carbon/GFO in the caddy - No protein skimmer (yet); now running Reef Octopus NS80! - No dosing (yet); February 2018: waiting for ESV B-Ionic to arrive next week Fish: - Yellow Watchman Goby, ~1.5 inches (added March 30, 2017) RIP my little jumping bean - 2x Black Misbar Ocellaris, ~1.75 inches (added March 31, 2017); February 2018: approx. 3 inches and 2 inches long - 1x Banggai Cardinalfish, ~2 inches (added July 15, 2017); February 2018: approx. 3 inches long - 1x Citron Goby, ~1.75 inches (added July 15, 2017); February 2018: 2-2.5 inches long - 1x Cherub Angelfish, ~3/4 inch (added February 9, 2018, very tiny!) Inverts: - A lone Blue-legged Hermit - 2x Spiny/Ninja Star snails - 3x Trochus snails - 1 cerith snail - 1 large and 1 small nassarius snail Corals: - Flame Tip BTA; sold! - Duncan - Green and purple-tipped hammers - Neon green trumpet - Sunny D palys - Various dark green zoas - Purple monti cap frag - Red Encrusting Goni (??) frag - Green Button Polyps - Some purple and blue mushrooms - Sour Apple Birdsnest frag - Forest Fire Digi frag - Green star polyps - Toadstool - Kenya tree coral - Fuzzy green mushrooms - Clove polyps - Dragon eye zoas (pink) - Torch Food Stuff: - Calanus Flake Food Omega One Marine Flakes - NLS Thera-A Regular 1mm Pellets - Hikari Bio-Pure Frozen Mysis - Hikari Bio-Pure Frozen Spirulina Brine Shrimp - Hikari Bio-Pure Frozen Krill - Hikari Bio-Pure Frozen Squid (nem's fav) - Omega One Freeze Dried Mysis - Selcon - PE Mysis 1mm pellets - LRS Reef Frenzy - OSI Spirulina Flakes I think that covers the main stuff? I hope I'm not forgetting anything... this is long enough. I like to keep it real simple. The tank is at the office so I can fiddle with them throughout the day, whenever, but it can't be too complicated. Low maintenance is the goal, though I'm so consumed by it that I spend a lot more time on the tank than I really need to. I chose to keep it as low cost as I could, while not compromising with things that are "cheap" and/or unreliable. I've been happy with all purchases so far, no major issues or scares, and will just have to drool over all of the high end equipment others get to play with! Thanks for looking!
