    Low pH 7.6

    I have Fluval 13.5G. Water: 26-27c 1.024 kH around 8 The pH is very low - 7.6 and day (even with the open windows the pH say same) and 7.5 at night. I have a skimmer and fuge with chaeto on a reverse time cycle. I also run a carbon. Salt was Reef Crystal, but I switched to Coral Pro Salt (changed maybe 20% of water). Any idea why it low and do I need to rise it? (kalk?)
  2. This is my third tank! Started the cycle for the tank on June 22nd. Will be moving at the end of July so won't be adding any livestock to the tank until August. Using Indo-Pacific live sand, BRS Reef Saver rock, and Red Sea Coral Pro salt. Just added the light on July 8th. Diatoms are beginning to grow! Equipment List stock pump (slight noise doesn't bother me) - after breaking in the noise is equivalent to a quiet fan IM custom caddy with filter floss - chemi-pure blue, and live rock rubble Kessil A80 Tuna blue with gooseneck Kessil A series spectral controller Cobalt Neotherm 50w heater AutoAqua smart ATO micro I will post updates in the future and I'm also on youtube, subscribe if you're interested!

  3. So as the title says,I'm converting to saltwater tanks. I definitely have a tight budget because I want to get my feet wet,not just cannonball in. In my 10g,I've already upgraded my aquarium with the Aquaclear powerfilter 110V. My tank currently stays around 76-77 degrees. I definitely want to house a pair of clownfish and a cleaner shrimp...and corals in the near future. I'm so scared of lighting and don't want to buy the wrong thing for corals. I'm getting a custom glass lid so I can't have anything clipped to the tank in the back,so for now I prefer the lights that slightly hover above the aquarium cover. Since price is strict,here's some lights I've run into on Amazon...let me know what you guys think 🙂 Green Element EVO 18"-22" LED Aquarium Light Fixture - Reef Capable 10x3W https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00APBO2XU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_nFPtBbHM2NND9 EVO 12 LED Aquarium Light Nano Marine Coral Reef Cichlid 6x 3W 3 Watt 30-40 cm by Odyssea https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00N0PJK0S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_TFPtBbVPXKD1Q SLR Lighting LED Aquarium Lighting – All Sizes for Fish Tanks, Terrariums, Vivariums – Plants, Coral, Seaweed – Natural Night & Day Light Patterns w/ Brackets & Remote Control [Size: 14-22 In.] https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0759NLDSB/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_dGPtBbAF0Y92Y

    Living Room Nano Peninsula

    Hey Nano-Reef's. Long time lurker, first time poster. I've been through all sorts of sized reef tanks, from a 5 gallon Fluval Edge, all the way up to a 180. This time around I've decided to go with something more appropriately sized: Mr. Aqua 22 Long. Surprisingly, there is not a lot of information on them out there, or at least builds, so I hope this will at least help somebody out there make some informed decisions, and bring some enjoyment as well! Now I wanted to re-scape, as well as get all this moved out, so I could just keep one tank, here's my Biocube 14: Originally I had come across an old PicoReef III, which probably would have been fine, but I was getting bored, and didn't like the aquascape, when locally a Mr. Aqua 22 long popped up FS. I pulled the trigger, and picked it up within 24 hours. The original owner ended up getting an AIO insert installed from Ocean Box Design, and while that was a really cool idea, it took up way to much real estate for my liking. My solution? Drill, and add a sump that was bigger than the tank! But first I had to find an overflow that I wanted. I spent a lot of time looking at Glass Holes, but ended up going with an Eshopps S Eclipse overflow. Meanwhile, I had a local club member building a stand for me. I wanted something that was going to fit right by my couch, but also new I was going to run it peninsula style. I had an old piece of red oak I was doing a failed project with, filling the cracks with silicone and glow in the dark powder, so I gave it to him and told him to use it if he could. It ended up being the top of the tank, so it has a nice live edge on the wood. I just picked it up last night, doors are coming later, but here's how everything is sitting for now. The bottom is holding a Trigger Systems Ruby 36 sump, and there is a Reef Octopus 110 int setup to handle the 45 gallons of total water. I have an XHO Reefbrite that I'm going to mount over the sump for the fuge, as well as lighting in the bottom. I'll have one MP10 for flow underneath the overflow in the back. I'm anticipating a zoanthid dominated display, but will probably end up doing a mix of everything. Here is a picture of one of my small candy racks: Thanks for reading!

  6. Top shot (Oct 2017) FTS (May 2017) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Yes...another IM 10 thread. Sorry folks. Brief history, I started with a pico reef in a Fluval spec lll which ran very well so I upgraded to an Eheim Aquastyle 9gal cube. The cube also ran very well and it was the first venture into sps and other stonies. From there, I went thru a shallow tank phase and went with an ADA 60f. After realizing the major benefits of having in-tank filtration system, I've decided to move over everything (yet again) to an IM 10 Fusion using all of my equipment from previous set ups. Teeny's reef also was a big inspiration. So here we go. The set up and equipment plan Innovative Marine Fusion 10 gallon Nanobox reef tide M Ecotech Vortech MP10 Jabeo 4 pump dosing system Smart ATO Micro Aqueon 50 heater Finnex 50 Red Sea Coral Pro Salt Skimmer by Mame Eshopps Nano Floss and chemipure blue Nature's ocean bio activ live aragonite (10 lbs) Dosing Bionic Calcium (daily) Bionic Alkalinity (daily) Reef Plus (weekly) Red Sea No3/phosphate remover (sometimes) Reefroids (weekly) Acropower (weekly) Tank came in a few days ago. I find the label kinda funny - some stock broker on the phone with reef on his desk Excellent quality tank. This sock filter thingy that it came with sucks and it just wont work. Don't see myself using this so I went ahead and ordered a custom caddy media basket. Here's the current ADA 8.6gal shallow with the inhabitants that I'm planning to transfer. It's a decent mix of acros, digitatas, caps, poscillaporas, pavonas and stylos along with some LPS and a couple of softies. FTS: October 1, 2016 Old tank shot from the Eheim cube. I think about 85% survived moves and are still with me today. FTS: February 25, 2016 Waiting for the stand to come in along with the skimmer and other stuff. Will keep you all posted. Thanks for visiting.

    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.

    Waterbox Nano Owner's Thread

    Howdy y'all! I believe I may be one of the first to adopt one of these gorgeous little Starfire beauties and I figured it would be a good time to start a thread for anyone else who may/has purchase(d) one! So far, Waterbox has been very responsive in dealing with the only issue I have run into so far [with the 7g model], the included return pump. They did so by sending me a free Sicce Mi Mouse return pump to replace the ECO66 pump, this may or may not be the case with other tank sizes in the series. I don't think any of us can argue that these AIO cubes are very attractive considering the quality of materials, construction, and included accessories! So, without further ado, please join in on the conversation! Is it just another AIO? Do you have one? What do you think? Are you some weird-o lizard person impersonating a reefer?!?!?! Here is the manufacturer page for reference: https://waterboxaquariums.com/cube/
  10. 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

    Torn Between 3 Lights

    Thinking about getting an IM Nuvo 10 gallon and am debating between 3 lights. The aquamaxx nemolight (here) , a single par30 led 18k bulb (here) , and the Hipargero 30W light (here). They are all in the same ballpark cost wise, I want to keep it budget friendly and under $100. Each seems to have advantages, the nemolight being the most controllable and easy to use, but the most money and least amount of power. I do like its programmability and the thunderstorm feature. The other two seem to be similar in power and cost (minus the cost of the fixture for the bulb) but lack control and need to be manually dimmed (or not dimmed at all) and therefore are pretty much either on or off. It would be nice for them to ramp up and down during the day but I guess its not a dealbreaker. Also, how long until the single bulb would need to be replaced? I want to be able to have some SPS if it is at all possible. Anyone have any thoughts? Or other recommendations staying in the <$100 range? Thanks for any replies.

    NanoBox Lighting Guide

    We have been working on a lighting guide for months and now feel confident to share. The NanoBox Lighting Guide features four new presets that work extremely well for reef tanks. We hope the guide helps new to experienced reef keepers have successful aquariums using NanoBox lighting. The guide goes over... Overview Lighting Placement NEW NanoBox Presets Coral Care - Common NanoBox practices to reef keeping The presets work for all units ranging from the Tide to Hybrids. We want to thank @ninjamyst, @Justind823 @markalot for the incredible photos! Enjoy! -Dave
  15. Background: This is an upgrade from my Fluval Spec V. I have always struggled with the rock being too big in the Fluval Spec V. It makes it very hard to clean the glass on each side so lots of algae build up. I also wanted to get a bigger tnak for the clown fish. This clown fish has been with me for over 2 years now and survived through 2 leaks, 1 move, and other mishaps. It is also a total bully so I can't put it into my Red Sea Reefer 350. When I first saw ReefBuilder feature the Fluval Evo 12, I knew it will be my next tank. The dimension fits perfectly wherethe Spec V is now and the rock will look great with more space on each side. There are some questionable design choices with the tank such as the black honeycomb at the top of the tank (which I razored off) and the AIO chamber allows a lot of detritus to build up in the first and second chamber. The stock lighting and pump are good only for softies and low light LPS. But overall, the tank itself is pretty decent for the price. I do like it comes with surface skimmer and the return nozzle is already split into two. In additional, the raised design is very modern. My vision for this tank is a very natural tank with gorgonians, LPS, zoas, acans, and ricordeas. I will get another fish or two, something that can put up with the clown.
  16. This will be a tank thread for the IM Nuvo Fusion 25 I just setup on Saturday (10/8/16) This will be my third reef tank but my first time with a nano. Very happy with the quality of these IM tanks. My plan is to keep things simple on this bedroom apartment tank and reuse some stuff I have around from my old 60g cube. Going without sand or a skimmer for now. I want to stock clowns and BTAs probably with some softies like gsp or xenia.

  18. Started this tank March 4, 2018. The tank itself is a 5 gallon Fluval Sea Evo 5. I have tried small saltwater tanks before but this is my first attempt going by the book (cycling/patience). Any criticism, tips or advice would be great! Equipment: -water pump upgraded to AQ600 (doubled flow to ~160 GPH) -50W heater -10W LED with 37 11000k day and actinic lights Stock: ~3.5 lbs of live rock -6 line wrasse -CUC of 4 hermits -GSP (purchased a week ago, looking very healthy so far) -supplemental phytoplankton Filter: -sponge filter -Phosgaurd -activated carbon -ceramic filter rings Notes: -Tank cycled, but only a month old so still waiting for some new tank syndrome (bryopsis, hair algae, coraline algae and possible diatoms sighted) -Most likely adding mushrooms and pulsing Xenia, and possibly a small clown ~20% changes about twice a week so far to keep water parameters in check -Eventually adding wave maker for extra flow and upgrading light
  19. Hobbs's 8gal Nuvo Reef Chronicling the development of a pristine nano ecosystem. Goal: minimize weekly maintenance while maintianing a portable and hardy marine reef Specs: Tank: Nuvo Aquarium Nano Reef 0202 8 gallon capacity Filtrations: Mechanical Sponge, activated carbon sponge, phosphate sponge Light: 8 watt 14,000k (6 white diodes, 4 blue) Sand: Arag-Alive Bahamas Oolite Live Rock: 6.6 lbs of cured live rock, fairly porous but could be better. Coralline growth present Water: R/O with salt from LFS. Total water is 5 gallons Start date: 8/5/17 Reasoning: Wanted a small durable aquarium that would be easy to move every year. Modern and sleek design with LEDs was a massive plus. Wanted to maximize biological filtration so wanted as fine as sand as possible and as much rock that would asthetically fit in the tank Initial thoughts: The tank is too small for all the fish I want, the sand is too fine, the light needs to be stronger. Still looks super cool. Plans: Have 2 small fish, maximize symbiotic pairings, have lots of inverts and corals. Maybe future anemone or clam (need vast lighting overhaul first, I know )
  20. PAST: I had my standard 10G (build thread: http://www.nano-reef.com/topic/364353-the-kurupt-10g-build/) going and everything was looking good and I was happy with what was happening. Then it boned me. The HOB AC's started to gurgle over randomly and water built up under the stand. It happened slowly so I never noticed anything wrong, until it started to leak out from under the stand. I had to act fast or lose the wife's support for this (not expensive at all) hobby. If I ruined the hardwood floors it would be a hard sell to get back up and running. I dug out and set up my old Fluval SpecV and threw the Fluval 206 canister I had on it. Got that up to temp and transferred rock, corals and inverts over. It was a very tight fit but it was only temporary. Moving the stand, which laid flat along the floor, it was worse than I thought! Way more water than I'd like to see soaking into the wood! Got to it in time though so there wasn't any real damage. Now, my original plan was to just break it down, dry the floor and put it all back together. That seemed like a LOT of work to do and NOT upgrade... I had plans to do so but not for a while. Thankfully I knew what I wanted so I called my LFS to see if they had anymore Reefer's in stock. One left. White. "Done. I'll be there in 15 mins." So that's what happened early one Wednesday morning to my 10G tank. RIP lil' guy.

  25. I currently have the 28g JBJ Nano with the intermediate led kit and was curious to see if anyone has modded their's in the form of swapping out individual white leds for alternate colors? I have added 2 current usa truelumens blue strips and 1 white (which I have disconnected now), but it needs more spectrum I think. I grow sps, lps and softies like weeds, but the colors aren't stellar even though the water is quality and I keep up with the Red Sea 4 part dosing as well. Was thinking of modding the leds before just swapping it out for an AI Prime HD (no, not going the Kessil route thanks).
