    Natural 25 Gallon Lagoon

    Hey all,My name is John (Aka Slice of the Sea Reef) and this is going to be my build thread for my Innovative Marine 25 Gallon Lagoon Tank. I am going for a more natural reef under white lights, and am going to be adding macroalgae and some other soft corals overtime. Anyways here is the specs on the tank:Tank: IM 25 Gallon Lagoon no standLight: AI prime non hd black with mountSand: Carib Sea Aragonite Rock: Misc dry rockFiltration: -IM filter caddy with filter balls, gfo, and carbon.-Filter sock-Reef Matrix Media-JBJ Nano Glo 4-LED Refugium light(for chaeto) with christmas tree timer-100w main heater and 50w backup heater-Wavemaker return pump with duckbill nozzles-Hydor koralia powerhead 425gph-IM cleaning magnet-standard aquarium thermometerLivestock future plans:I was hoping to get a pair of clownfish and a goby and pistol shrimp. I also am looking at getting a few hermits and snails as well.I will likely try and update this minimum weekly with at least a FTS if nothing else. Stay tuned!Here is some of my inspiration for the tank:

    hello macro growers!

    Hello NR. I'm new here, after coming across a 2015 TOTM featuring a macro/coral tank. It's very close to what I was envisioning. I previously had a 55 gallon planted freshwater tank with shrimps and snails and rummy nose tetras. The things I loved about freshwater is the diversity of plants and the seen and unseen organisms and tank equipment that work together to drive the aquarium ecology. Flash forward a few years and now I'm looking at setting up a 20 or 30 gallon saltwater tank with two clown fish (Percula) and shrimps. I'm not really interested in corals, and I was at first kinda disappointed by the options for saltwater plants. But after looking at some of the pictures on NR, I'm excited about macro algae! I think I'd like to eventually end up with a 2-clown and a couple shrimp/snail tank with some easy macro algae that can thrive on moderate lighting. I'm currently browsing the forum for affordable lights that might work for rimless tanks. Speaking of rimless tanks, I'm looking at rimless partly for better quality glass for viewing. I'm open to making a small sump in the cabinet, especially for a 30 gallon so I have the option of growing Chaeto and copepods in a sump (ecology!). One of the things that kinda turn me off corals is a lot of the coral tanks I see are so oddly lighted, very blue. I want natural looking lighting that shows off the reds on clowns and shrimp, and maybe macro tank lighting is more compatible with that goal. I'm currently floating in a sea of info on rimless tank brands and lights. Any pointers would be appreciated! Thanks to all for sharing so much info already on this forum. Jason

    Dwarf seahorse

    I'm planning on starting a dwarf seahorse tank. Its prob going to be about 2.5-6 gallons, haven't found a tank yet. I am curious about tankmates and coral compatibility. I need ways to kill hydroids. Maybe something to eat it? I know you can use some meds but i have very limited access to that bcs of my country's restrictions. Its not going to be a pure biotope Here is the probable stocking list. 1 bumble bee snail 1 mexican turbo 2 nassaurius vibex 3-5 pairs of dwarfs 2 blue stripe pipefish??? Photosynthetic gorgonians photosynthetic sponges (species reccomendations?) dwarf cerith snails 3 scarlet hermits 5 sexy shrimp live Copepods live Brine shrimp live rotifers live mysis (if i can get these) saltwater ghost (if i can get these) Ideas and tips please!!!
  5. Current FTS 8/2 7/2019: Past FTS pics: 7/2018 12/2018 Finally decided to start a tank journal. The tank is only 2 years old as of 2018.

    Maddie's Evo Adventure

    So... This wasn't exactly planned, but now I have saltwater again! After about 3 years of being out of the hobby, I'm back. When a friend offered me his Evo 13.5 for 100 bucks fully set up I couldn't say no! It arrived tonight, with a minor gha infestation and looking kinda bad. The stock pump apparently kicked it unless I'm doing something wrong, and I also might have dropped the SG to 1.022 after it was at 1.029. Oops. So tomorrow it looks like I'll be running to the LFS to pick up a new pump and saltwater. Tank currently has an emerald crab, a hermit of some sort, a damsel of some sort and a rainsford goby which was looking bad when it got to my house. Also, a partially dead gorg and some snails. I put a maxijet 1200 on it for now (good grief, it's horribly noisy!).
  7. Hi Everyone, Looking to update the back of my nano 12 gal- 48 lite tank. I have a river reef all in one system. Been up for 2 1/2 years. Currently housing 2 montiporas, 1hammer head, xiena, zoanthids, Green star polys. Hope to eventually get a clam and a Trachyphyllia geoffroyi ,Challice coral I have recently removed the lid and got myself an AI prime light. I have a small eheim 350 skimmer which fails every now and then... Have coarse sponge, phosphate remover bag, carbon bag, ceramic cubes to hold bacteroa. - CAN I REMOVE ALL OF THIS IS IT NECESSARY ??? Dont like having to keep buying thing to replace like this.. Been thinking about changing to the following: I have 4 square sections at the back (Have phosphate at 0.50 ) Refugium- To grow Green hair algae - If i do can anyone recommend a little flat led strip to put over so it doesn't stick up out of my tank ?What bulb? How do i maintain when it grows? Do i just trim it when it grows etc for maintenance Kalwasser reactor - I have a 48 litre tank, i have looked at other conversations saying for a small tank this could be dangerous as such small doses are needed etc Automatic top off ??- Do i need one really? Since removing the lid i now add fresh ro water once a week. Protein skimmer ? Previously using a eheim 350 as had a hood on the tank but now removed lid so can upgrade to hang on the back if anyone know of a small skimmer which could fit this tank Thank you Any advice would be great
