    CSR’s Lucky Lagoon 25 - Month 8

    I present to you all, The Lucky Lagoon!! 😁 Took us four hours to put back together (because I’m a newb at it and scaping the rocks was a ***** since every piece had coral on it, not a complaint though lol). I lost a piece of some sps that got “fragged” off during the scaping by covering it up in sand... it was cool looking with a nice green color with red dots all over (probably a monti of some kind; Edit: it’s a rainbow monti and was a nice piece of it..). Maybe the snails will kick it up 🤷🏽‍♂️ Another awesome thing was that the sand was left in the tank when we were transporting it from the lfs and we found a yasha goby in it, I called up the store and they just said congratulations 😁 there’s also a pistol shrimp, that I found trying to kill me, to pair it with if they’re not already. It also came with a AA micro ato so that’s off the list now, I can’t believe it. I was really looked out for! I’ll make sure to keep you guys updated on everything. Currently, all of the coral have been moved to the tank and the sand was swapped out for 30lbs LS. I started using AV seed to help get the bacteria going again and will be using prime for the next week or so. The tank is running: -AI Prime HD -AA micro ATO -IM Minimax GFO reactor -1 cobalt MJ 1200 and 1 stock return pump into spin streams -2 240 koralia pumps -2 IM media caddy basket -AquaTop Ti heater -Jebao PP4 Wavemaker -ca. 20-25lbs Caribsea Liferock -ca. 30lbs Caribsea Fiji Pink LS Livestock: -Pistol Shrimp -Yasha Goby -Pair of Snowflake Clownfish -B&W Clown -Leopard Wrasse CUC: -Bunch of nassarius, ceriths, trochus, hermits (blue and red) and astrea snails -emerald crab -Peppermint shrimp(getting evicted soon) -sorry I couldn’t tell you for sure because they all came with the tank Coral: -Some montipora an encrusting pink or red one and a rainbow monti -Duncan -Ricordeas -Bunch of Zoas -ORA Vargas Cespitularia -BTA -Ultra RFA -Green RFA -Bunch of acans -Green Clove Polyps -Palys -GSP -Meteor shower cyphastrea -Green monti cap -Watermelon Chalice -Blue and orange chalice The tank already cleared up but then when I realized that I buried that branch of rainbow monti, I tried to find it lol Lastly, here’s the thread explaining how I got this treasure box!
  2. If you don't want to hear my obnoxious story skip down to the bottom, but the story does provide background) So I have never kept a reef aquarium but I have kept (and still maintain) many of the most challenging freshwater species (like discus if you are from that side of the hobby) and I look corals and corals and the inverts are the reasons I always loved looking at reef threads and watching builds, but it from my stand point it never warranted me getting one manly because I would need to do things like mix RODI water, get super expensive lights and drop loads on corals. But about a month back I wandered into a Saltwater exclusive store and was blown away by how much cooler these things looked in person then through a computer screen. And the only fish that really made me do wow (I was mostly attracted to corals and shrimps) where a Yellow cores wrasse in there 3000 gallon display along with a Flame angel and after hearing that these fish are a little more on the easy side of care I wondered if I could house them in my favorite tank which I already decided I would purchase after reading into it and seeing my friends display with one, And that tank is the Innovative Marine 25 gallon Lagoon. I love this size because I feel that it has enough space but I can still light it with one AI prime LED fixture (my favorite fixture) and its not so big so while I start out I can just purchase my water from my LFS. So I've done about a year of research now I think I am ready. Long story short can I house either (or both but I doubt it) A flame angel or Yellow Corris Wrasse in a IM lagoon 25 with like a Shrimp goby pair and a Firefish? (this will be a coral reef) the Dimensions of the tank are 24x20x12 and there will be about 30 pounds of LR and more than enough filtration (ghost skimmer, filter socks, chemipure blue, Seachem matrix, and possible a reactor or Fuge) Any response is much appreciated!

    Sharbuckles Low Boy Lagoon

    Well it’s time for a new tank build. Originally purchased to be a frag tank I picked up one of ZooMed’s Low Boy 50g. After perusing the TOTM’s I came across two sources of inspiration which have now changed the entire direction of the low boy. Those two sources of inspiration are as follows: AND Two absolutely beautiful and unique tanks. The Aquascape will be very similar to both tank builds above. Almost combining the two with some rocks above the water line with some mangroves as well. The low boy offers a certain set of challenges as it is only 10” tall. But the 48x24 footprint allows for really cool dimensions as far as scaping goes. As I mentioned, I originally purchased the tank to set up as a frag system so to please my better half there will be a large frag area in the sump. Equipment: 50g ZooMed Low Boy 75g DIY Sump/Frag Tank Sicce Syncra 3.0 Return Pump 2 Tunze Nanostream 6040’s Eshopps Eclipse S Overflow 2x250w halide with 2 T5HO (ReefBrite strips to replace t5’s later) Eheim Jager Heater Havent chose a skimmer yet, thinking maybe just a Tunze 9004. Tunze ATO Ive got about 75lbs of dry dead rock which I will be using for my scape. Will add about 40lbs of aragonite as well. Stocking plans will be a mix of macros and corals, softies and LPS mostly. Havent put much much thought into fish plans. A friend is building a simple 2x4 stand which I may sand and paint white. Simple and effective. It will be 48” high for optimal viewing of the tank. Pics of the build to come this week!

    IM Nuvo 25 Black Build

  5. So Currently I have a JBJ 28G NanoCube with LED Pro Lighting, it is a year old now. What I didn’t like about the NanoCube was the height of the tank, I hated having to clean anything or move anything down near the bottom. The other was the lack of controllability of the lights, I feel I have some corals that are not doing as well as they could be, they seem a bit bleached out like the lighting is almost too much. What I did like however was the “moonlighting” which was a great thing for being able to see the tank all the time. So this brings me to today… I got a really awesome deal on an Innovative Marine 25 Lagoon, almost too good to believe and I will have the tank on Thursday! Here are my plans, let me know what you think... Tank - IM 25 Lagoon Lights - AI Prime HD (seen others running this, @Clown79 or anyone else running these how High are you hanging it?) Pumps - Gonna try stock for now (if too noisy will probably do 2 Eheim 600s, or a single Sicce) Powerhead - Hydor Koralia Nano (Already have the 425gph, will that be enough flow?) Filtration Chambers - 3D printing a Floss Holder - Gonna try running with sock on other side and maybe an inTank refugium caddy Heater - Finnex HMA-S 100W heater ATO - Auto Aqua Smart ATO Stand - Going Custom - Debating between full build or buying a kitchen cabinet and finishing it up nicely - But I would really like 38-40 inches in height ( @flatlandreefer, how tall is your stand?) Can anyone give me edge to edge glass measurements, I want to make sure I don’t make top to small? Thinking about getting a DJ Powerstrip to make feedings and maintenance easier. Would this be sufficient? Rock - 20.5 lbs dry marco baserock, I am currently running the 20 pounds in a 10 Gallon Aquarium with an AC70 HOB to clean out the dust on the rock. Thinking this will be my scape (yes I made a Cardboard cutout of the dimensions as close as I could) - been playing around with it a bit still, what do you think? Looking from Front- Looking Downward from Front - Looking Directly down from the top- Looking from Right Side- Looking from Left Side- Debating on sand, either the Caribsea Arag-Alive Indo-Pacific Black or Special Grade Arag-Alive ~ 20lbs Let me know what you think and if I am missing anything? Thanks for putting up with all my pictures :-)

    Slatts' Lagoon 25

    Hey guys, new to nano-reefs.com. Have almost 3 years experience now in the hobby. Starting up a new build thread as I am in the process of moving and have to downsize to a smaller tank. My current tank that will be decommissioned here in a very few short weeks is the 75g Deep Blue Edge Rimless mixed reef drilled with the Synergy Reef 16" overflow with an ADHI 60g refugium sump. Before that I had a 60g Deep Blue Cube mixed reef with a 20g sump. Check my profile out if you want to see pics of either tank. Lagoon 25 Build Equipment thus far: Tunze Silence 1073.008 Tunze Comline DOC 9001 CustomCaddy Cobalt Neotherm 75w Lagoon 25 Equipment ill be re-purposing from my previous tanks: Kessil 360we Tuna Blue (2) Tunze Turbelle Nanostream 6040 Neptune Apex - VDM, DOS, DDR, AFS Tunze Osmolator Spectrapure 90 GPD RO/DI Avast K1 Kalk Stirrer Lets get on to it. Last weekend I built the stand for my 25 Lagoon. I used 2x3's for the structure, a nice piece of Aspen for the top, and some thinner paneling for the sides with a black stain:

    DVS 25 Lagoon

    Hi Everyone! I recently set up my 25 lagoon after tearing down my Fluval evo 13, and am thrilled to get it underway. I mistakenly posted it in the tank journal section, but would rather keep it updated in this section of the forum. So far my build goes like this. Right now all the corals in my tank are just jammed in there as it was getting late, and i just wanted to make sure things were alive. So far, so good, no losses. I thought i might have lost my Tailspot Blenny, but he showed up last night. I was really worried i may have smushed him under a rock. I'll post some pictures once things are glued down and looking good. Thanks for taking a look! You can see more of my build progress on instagram too if youre interested @dvs_evo13 is my user name. Also, if anyone else is interested in the 3D printed floss holders, i got the file here. They were built buy a user on Reef Central named twitchy. they fit awesome, and work great. i printed 2 holders for 10$ locally. Lots cheaper than the floss holders on amazon. Build List: IM Lagoon 25 100w Cobalt Neotherm Heater Sicce 1.5 Return Pump 3D Printed Floss Holders AI Prime HD BRS DIY Screen Top 20lbs Fiji Pink Sand Live Stock: Tail Spot Blenny Coral: Setosa Green Monti Cap Red Monti Cap Sunset Monti ORA Birdsnest Panope Birdsnest Miyagi Tort RMF Biohazard Red Robin Acro Red Mili Green Stag Red/Green Candy Canes Neon Green Candy Canes Blue Candy Canes Splatter Toxic Hammer Purple Octospawn Yellow Octospawn multicolor frogspawn Purple tip green frogspawn Green Pocilipora Blasto Wellsi BLasto Merletti Neon Green Toadstool Purple Gorgonia Utter Chaos Scrabled Eggs Sunny Ds Radioactive Dragon eyes Japanese Sunburst Zoas Red Chalice Miami Hurrican Chalice Green Duncans Blue Duncans Acan Lords (4) ASD War Coral Bowerbanki Superman rhodactis mushroom Green Fungia Plate ...i think i got it all..

    The Pinnacle Peninsula

    Hello everyone! Some time has passed and I started to get that itch again. It happens to be some convenient timing too, now having graduated and started my career I don't face as many constraints on my setup, which is a nice feeling. This isn't my first reef nor my first nano, I tried to track progress on my last build here, but as you can see I didn't post very consistently. I had that setup setup running for about a year or so, but unfortunately had to break it down due to some financial constraints, aka being a broke college student. That said, I learned a lot of lessons. I'm hoping to carry some of these things to the new setup. My girlfriend and I just moved in together this past week, were in an apartment now so the tank had to be on the smaller side. I was really loving the new IM Pensinsula series, everyone was grabbing up the 14g, I liked the sleek look of the 20g so that's what I ordered. I had originally planned to set it up in a Peninsula format, but unfortunately once we got all the furniture in, I couldn't really find a spot I liked where I could set it up as a room divider. I have some equipment I saved from my last couple setups. Namely my AI Prime and my Jebao WP 10 which I will be carrying over to this build. I learned from the 24x24 that evaporation drives me crazy and topping off without an RODI and ATO is a major major pain. I learned my lesson this time and bought an RODI so I don't have to make constant runs for distilled water. I'll likely be ordering an IM ATO soon. A Reefkeeper Lite is on the radar as well, with hopefully an eventual upgrade to a gyre over the jebao. As far as the scape goes, I have some crappy phone pics that I quickly snapped this morning, I'll update with dslr pics when I get home. I'd like to try and keep a lagoon-style scape/livestock choice going because I liked the natural look of my last tank as everything grew in. My father's side of the family is from an island in Greece called Chios, easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. One of my favorite beaches on the island is named Vroulidia, and it was a bit of an inspiration for the scape. Initially I thought I had wanted to do two separate islands, but I came to like this one flowing mass. The rockwork also curves in from back to front, with the sand bed sloping up to the back right. I may plant a mangrove back rhere, we'll see. I definitely plan to stock in plenty of macroalgae. Let me know thoughts/opinions. Here's a pic I took of Vroulidia: Thanks for looking!
