  1. Hi everyone, my old tank was a 20 gallon aqeuon with a tomato clownfish and a yellow watchman goby. This will be a slow thread as I'm a little tight with money at the moment, but I hope the end result will be fantastic. Anyways I picked up the top fin 55 gallon tank kit. I am aqua scaling it to have 2 clumps of rocks on both sides that slope into the middle like a trench. I was watching serpa design and he painted the back of his tank with Rust-Oleum acrylic black latex paint and I think I will do this to really get the trench vibe going. The goal of this tank is to not have many corals but have huge colonies that will fill the tank.

  2. I'm upgrading my 20G mixed reef to a 60G. I've decided to start a journal a bit ahead of time - the tank has already been paid for, and is currently being built by my LFS.

I'll also be adding various types of macro to the fuge in the sump, as well as slowly stock up on corals as I go. Otherwise, this will mostly be a TT from a 20G to a 60G. I currently have ~10kg of LR in my 20G. I'll be adding an extra 20kg LR to the 60G (split between DT & sump) - I've already been cycling some dry rock for nearly 2 months in a storage bin in preparation of the upgrade. All the equipment except the return pump is now with me - that will come when they deliver the tank to my house. Here's a basic sketch design of how the DT & sump looks like: This is a pic of how the cabinet will be (as texted by my LFS manager to me this afternoon): The color of the cabinet will be black matte: And this was the two of us discussing and adjusting the sump design repeatedly over the past few days: I left the sump design up to my LFS manager to decide. I'm not confident in designing my own sump, tbh, and he's more experienced than I am, so he'll be getting to it. The salt used will be Fritz RPM. I'll be mixing the salt a day ahead of the tank's arrival so that we can quickly scape the system and get it filled up and running as soon as possible. This whole setup did cost me a lot of time, effort, planning and money, but I think it's worth it. The main reason behind this upgrade is because my 20G is cracking, and the crack is angling towards the bottom panel of the glass - it's just a matter of time before the tank collapses. The secondary reason is because my Starry Blenny is too large and I think he'll appreciate a larger tank. The whole system will be set up in my bedroom, and no fans or chillers will be used since my room is quite cool enough, especially when I turn both the fan and A/C on at night. Will update when the tank arrives. Stay tuned! 🙂

    Jackal's Nuvo EXT 50 Lagoon

    I'm excited to announce my upgrade from a Biocube 16 gallon to the Nuvo EXT Lagoon 50 gallon. Tank:. Innovative Marine Nuvo EXT 50 Lagoon Sump: Trigger Saphire 26 Saltmix: Tropic Marin Pro @ 1.026 S.G. Aquascape:. CaribSea Liferock Sand: TropicEden Miniflakes Lighting:. Noopsyche K7 Pro II x 2 Powerheads: Coralbox RN-1 x 2 Heater: Finnex Titanium 300 Watt with ITC 306-A Controller Skimmer: Reef Octopus Classic 150SSS INT Return Pump: Sicce Syncra Silent 3.0 ATO: XP Aqua Duetto with Eshopps 5 gallon reservoir Chemical Filtration: Matrix Carbon Mechanical Filtration: Poly Filter The current plans for the tank include continuing the mixed reef theme from the Biocube and expanding on that theme in a larger body of water. It'll open up possibilities for additional fish and corals that I couldn't add to a smaller tank. This will be my tank of firsts. First sump, first ato, first large tank, first skimmer, first tank move, first time plumbing, etc. It's going to be a journey and I have a lot of new exciting stuff to learn along the way. I will document my journey so that hopefully others may learn from the countless mistakes that I'm about to make. Livestock: -Banggai Cardinalfish -Leopard Wrasse -Yellow Coris Wrasse -Longnose Hawkfish -Yellow Tail Damsels x 2 - Black Phantom and Snowflake Clownfish Inverts: -Green Speckled Bubble Tip Anemone -Nassarius Snails -Scarlett Hermits -Turbo Snails -Cerith Snails -Fighting Conch & Tiger Conch -Purple Urchin Corals: -Green Star Polyps -Various Zoanthids & Palythoas -War Coral & Favias -Meteor Shower Cyphastrea -Green and Purple Hammers -Orange Montipora Setosa -GARF Bonsai Acropora -Purple & Red Blastomussa -Various Acans -Forest Fire, Bubblegum Digitata -Red Chalice -Platygyra -Green Trumpets -Electric Myagi Tort -Frogspawn -Orange Fungia Plate -Hulk Acro 1 Year FTS: 11 Months FTS: 9 Months FTS: 5 Months FTS: 1 Month FTS: Aquascape:
  4. My 125 Gallon is already a so-called all-in-one system, as it lacks a sump. But it also lacks any extra filtration...no skimmer, no filter to run carbon, etc. So far it's been just live rock, LED lights and as much flow as I can give it. This 125 was an upgrade itself almost a year ago. I originally (11-ish years ago) had a 37 gallon+sump system for SPS...no fish. After a few years I added a second display (50 Gallon) to that system for more coral space. About a year ago all of the contents from both tanks were consolidated to the 125. I did have to add new lights to accommodate the increased tank length. The old sump and skimmer along with a little rock and the original sand bed were left behind. I'm upgrading now for a few reasons. I'd like to have the aeration from running a skimmer again. I have more algae growing that I have historically and I think corals are suffering from the day/night pH/oxygen swings. I'd like the tank to get a little better flow from a lot fewer pumps. Currently there's a mix of six smaller Tunze powerheads. I'm also upgrading the (still new) lights, but mostly for the superior form-factor. I like having excellent access to the tank for maintenance and the current lights are large for the space. OLD (all gear used at various times and listed roughly in order, ending with the most recent) Lights: Coralife 2x 150 watt halide Radium, Ecoxotic, DIY, Maxspect Razor, Ocean Revive Flow: Hydor Flo's, Hydor Korallia Gen 1 model 3 and 4, Seio Prop pump, Ecotech Vortech Gen 1 or 2, Tunze 6045 multiple generations Return Pump: Quiet One 2200 (Italian), Mag 7, Quiet One 4000 (Chinese) Skimmer: Oceanic "Plus Series" Model 6 (classic!!), AquaC EV-90, Tunze 9410 NEW Lights: Three Kessil A360x's Flow: Two Tunze 6105's Skimmer: Tunze 9012 Also gaining a Tunze Osmolator ATO and Multifilter in the upgrade. More info once I have the gear installed.

    Mochi's Sushi Tank 750XXL

    Updated 1-29-2020. So much has happened. Marriage, new jobs, etc. Reef wise, the tank made a sudden and unexpected upgrade to the Reefer 750XXL about half a year ago. Instead of making a new thread, I'll continue to post in this one. So in light of all that, here's an updated FTS and Mochi picture. FTS Current FTS as of 12.2020 Doggo
  6. Link to my new tank!!! This is my aqarium journal of my new 65g reef tank. Never owned a reef tank (let alone a saltwater) before and just started this one up. I'm making this thread to hear suggestions from you all because I realky need it. My tank setup is a 65g tank with overflow, coral compulsion cc120 led, jabao wavemaker, 100w heater, and 70lbs of rock. The sump is 29g with a reef octopus classic space saver protein skimmer, jabao dcp 6500 return, filter sock, refugium (with nothing in it), and refugium light. I have 2 clowns in the tank, a coral beauty, yellowtail damsel, 6 line wrasse, 1 hermit crab, probably like 4 snails, and a 6" deresa clam. The corals are a duncan colony, mini blasto colony, leather coral, and a bounce coral. I'll try to update every week. Please tell me some suggestions on how I can make jt a better tank.

    Moving a 65g tank + 29g sump

    I'm in the process of buying a 65g reef tank that is completely set up currently. It comes with fish, live rock, corals, etc. Never moved a tank and wanted to know the best way to go about it. I got some 5g buckets, plastic bags, and boxes to mave with. Is there anything else that I'm missing, or anything that I should know before moving? The drive to pick up the tank is 40 minutes away. I attatched an image of everything that the tank comes with so you know what I'm dealing with.
