  1. UPDATE: Most Recent FTS 10/4/18 (***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

  6. Hey everyone so I've posted on here before it's been a full month since I cycled my tank with a clown fish so two and a half months. Just added a cuc a cleaner shrimp four nassarius snails and four Mexican turbo snails. My big question is what is going on with the snails. At first they all seemed fine went to some part of the tank the Nas. Went under the sand kept there little organs out. After a few days and two feedings the shrimp molted he seems to hide most of the time only comes out to eat and at night occasionally just coming out for no reason and two turbo snails keep sticking to the top of the tank one even comes out of the water on and off. The turbos just don't seem to be moving very much and one Nas snail looks dead but the rest haven't come to eat it so maybe it's just dying ? I read online snails can just be crazy and not make sense. Tested the water yesterday before water change everything was good temp stays from 77.4 to 77.8 pH 8.2 a little low I keep using a buffer in 8.4 in my sump. Nitrite 0 nitrates 0 ammonia .25 I'm guessing idk .25 and .5 are super close in color to me. Any advice from seasoned experienced fish enthusiasts would be greatly appreciated. If your not very knowledgeable please don't respond or at least let me no so I don't take advice from someone who thinks they can help ,? thank you pictures are the questionable dead Nas snail. The turbo snails hiding at the top and just general pics of the current tank for better help
  7. I was inspired by Totm winners on nano reef forum and that drive my desire to set up a nano tank. On the other hand, I dont want to spend a ton of money. So I decide to go cheap by doing some diy. I bought an ADA knockoff tank made by Yiding, a chinese manufacturer rumored to be OEM of ADA tanks in the past. The tank dimension is 45cmx 30cmx27cm which approximately hold 34 liter of water. Here is the current tank info. I will keep on editing this as the tank develop. Tank – Yi Ding curve glass ( 45x27x30 ) cm around 8.5 gallons ( Net volume – 7 gallons) with DIY compartments and loc -line return nozzle.

    Moving white specs/bugs??

    I noticed these little bugs I guess u can say or organisms on my glass.. I’ve never seen them before but they’re all over my glass. On of my fishes died the day before so idk if these are good or not
  9. HELLO everyone! This is my first post, and i'm genuinely curious to hear what you guys have to say about my 6 line wrasse.So currently I have a 10G FOWLR tank on my desk at work that's been cycling since October-ish, stocked with a royal gramma (Krang), 3 Stripe Damsel (Ruckus), Ocellaris clown (Juice) and a 6 line wrasse (Cream Corn). Krang has been in there for a month, everyone else has been in there for 2ish weeks. Before you rag on me for having 4 fish in a 10G tank, bear in mind that everyone gets along (except Krang, who gets a little territorial), and if **** should hit the fan or if anyone starts to get a little too big for the tank (they're all around an 1 inch big right now), I have a 280G waiting for them.Now back to the issue. Cream Corn the 6 line is by far my favourite fish. When I first introduced him to the tank, I was actually surprised to see him eat both pellets and frozen mysis immediately. But over the past few days, I've not seen him eat anything that I put in the tank. Mind you, my tank has very little algae and I'm currently running copper (it's a FOWLR so I honestly don't mind putting copper in the DT) and I have an ceramic aquascape rock instead of LR, so I doubt that there are any hitchhikers like flatworms or bristleworms. He's acting perfectly normal, zooming around and coming up to the glass and I can see zero signs of parasites on anyone. In fact, he's looking around and picking at stuff on the rock sculpture. The thing is, if he hasn't eaten anything at all since I got him, I'd understand that I have a sick/picky fish. However, I've seen him eat both the mysis and the pellets before, but now he's stopped and is scoping out stuff on the rock sculpture and gnawing at it. I've tried frozen mysis, brine shrimp and pellets. He's not fat, but he's definitely not starving either. All of them are super active. I'm just not sure what he's eating, and I want to make sure that he doesn't starve. At this point, I'm almost tempted to buy live tigger pods just to make sure that he's ok and I get some peace of mind. Is this normal? Do 6 line wrasses pick at diatom algae? Because I've definitely noticed that my diatom bloom has all but disappeared in my tank since he's been in here, and the only remaining bits that I can see are the ones that are in the direct path of my fan where none of the fish can reach. That's my only reasoning right now. Let me know if i'm doing anything wrong or if you have suggestions for irresistible 6 line food. I've included my parameters below juuuust in case. pH: 7.7 (stabilized at this level for 3 weeks. not going to raise this until I've finished running copper because I don't want to risk complications)dKH: 8Alkalinity: 2.85Nitrates: 5Phosphates: 010% water changes every 5-7 days. I'd also appreciate any suggestions on how to naturally raise my pH without using chemicals. I have plenty of surface movement, and if an airstone'll help, I'm open to getting one. Attached is a (terrible) photo of Cream Corn investigating my camera while Juice lurks in the background lmao.

    Reef Glass protein skimmer!!

    Hello all! I just installed my reef glass protein skimmer last night on my one month old Nuvo 10G i wanted to know if this is how much the bubbles should rise up to the stopper, i heard the further away from the stopper, the dryer the skimmate, and the closer to the stopper, the wetter the skimmate(what reef glass suggests). i wanted a mix or balance if you will of both. Here is where the bubbles rise up to now, they dont really touch the stopper, but they get near it let me know your inputs and what works best for you guys!! This little reefglass is epic!!!
  11. So I have entered the big challenge for 2018 for us nano reefers. So I figured to put my build up on the forum since I've been trying to find a build where someone was mostly if not only focused on using leather corals. Yes they are pretty simple but, with the right combination I think I can create a pretty good display. Keeping it simple: Heater AI Prime 12x12x12 cube Minimal sand 6lbs of rock Powerhead And NO FILTER Simply a water change once to every two weeks should be fine since leathers prefer little dirty water. My bio load will also be minimal with two tiny super tiny bullethole clown fish. Will post pics very soon! P.s. this is my first topic... wish me luck ?
  12. My 20 gallon nano reef!!! Check it out!!!!! Please and thank you! I will be doing updates on this tank as well as product reviews, showing some coral I pick up along the way of building this tank fully, and also answering questions if I could! so stay tuned for more...

    First Tank Update

    Okay, so heres my first tank update in my fluval m60. It has been going for close to 2 months now and i have finally got it stocked up with a few up the things in want to add to my tank. The hardware i have running is my return pump and 1 wave maker. I'm not sure what ones they are but from the first time I set up this tank(what a failure ) were the correct flow rate for what i wanted to keep once I got all the things I wanted to keep(anemone and sps/maybe lps around the 1 year+ mark). Tunze 9001 skimmer and using it as a surface skimmer. Media reactor(again don't know what kind but correct size for the tank) running gfo with a media bag sitting on top of where it pushes the water out from with carbon. Then 2 filter media or whatever there called before the return pump. I have the maxspect razor r420r 130w. Oh and i have some kinda rock i got from the lfs that wasn't live rock but still held a lot of bacteria So in the display has about 25-30 pounds of live rock and 20 pounds of live sand. I first bought 5 blue legged hermit with one dying. they helped clean some algae towards the end of my cycle. Once cycled I bought a pair of flurry clownfish that love playing together. Been going great. This past weekend I bought a fire shrimp and 2 small zoanthid colonies( not sure the names ill post pictures and a video tomorrow if you guys could help when i figure out how to post them). The fire shrimp does hide a lot but when i put my hand in my tank today to shift my rocks around a tiny bit he actually came out and starting to clean my hand. After i hand fed him some pellets (only went for 2 small ones) Thought that was super cool and the zoanthids seem to be doing good, so right now I'm very happy where my tank has came in this period of time and watching it grow into a tiny piece of the ocean.Thanks for reading and ill get pictures and a video up later.
