  2. I have taken down my tank and am looking to sell my DIY led/t5 hybrid light. This is a housing from a Coralife 4x 24" T5 lunar fixture. I removed 2 of the T5s, as well as the lunar LEDs, and mounted a Nanobox Duo inside of it. So total it has 2 24" T5s in the front and back each with individual reflectors, and a nanobox duo m (2nd gen w/lime leds) mounted in the middle. 4 channel Bluefish controlled with the t5s on a separate outlet. I'll also include the old nanobox duo gooseneck in case you want to restore it. The nanobox fan is burnt out. It is an easy fix, but works fine without it since the t5 has a fan and the housing is looser around the nanobox than the original housing. It also needs a cover for the nanobox fan hole I cut into the top. It also could use a better plexiglass protector, I couldn't find a single piece big enough. With a little TLC this could be a really clean fixture, but it's currently a bit rough around the edges. That being said, this thing works great for growing corals and has a great mix of flashy led and natural fluorescnet spread. I really like the colors, and look of this light. I am selling because I have taken down the tank, sold all my stuff, and am moving across the globe. Looking to get $300 shipped. Thanks for looking.
  3. 5 NEW VIDEOS! NanoBox, Aquatic Life, ATI, and MORE! Fast facts about our customers' favorite products!
  4. NanoBox will be featuring tanks that we come across on social media, Reddit and other platforms other than Nano-Reef. We wanted to highlight customers that do not regularly/never post on the forums. We hope to make this a monthly or bi-monthly thread for you to enjoy! The first tank is Huy's Red Sea Reefer 170 paired with a NanoBox Wide Quad. Equipment List : NanoBox Wide Quad Water circulation: Vortech mp10 & Aqamai kps on random flow Skimmer: Aquamaxx ws-1 Return pump : Jebao dct-4000 Temp controller : Inkbird itc-308 attached to a 100w heater and a clip-on fan for those hot days. I keep the tank around 78-79 degrees. Doser: Jebao dp4 to keep alkalinity and calcium stable. Dkh around 7.8-8, calcium 400, mag 1320 Ato: Smart ato micro Supplements: Aqua vitro fuel for amino acids 3 drops daily.

  7. NEW NanoBox Store Page

    After years of a terrible store page, the NanoBox store page is upgraded. Please check it out! I still need to add a few products but will be updating throughout this week. Please let me know what you think! ATI RETRO pricing on the website with info. True shopping cart! Better descriptions! Updated photos. https://nanobox-reef.myshopify.com/ Thanks guys! -Dave
  8. Hey guys, It has been a while since I have done a post like this and feel it is long over due. The past six months was a wild ride and I am finally starting to find my groove again. So what has been going on? A TON! Marine Depot + NanoBox : To start @Marine Depot picked up the NanoBox line in September and we have been working away. I am working with Robert on a new video show casing the NBR line and what it has to offer. The video is shaping up and looking forward to sharing with you guys. It has been a pleasure working with them and excited to see what the future holds. NanoBox Resellers : A big shout out to these guys! Rapid LED InTank Marine Depot Lighting Guide : If you have not checked this out PLEASE do. I should have done this earlier but did not have the feedback I needed. The new presets are incredible and will make your tank shine! Flickr NanoBox Instagram : I really enjoy Instagram. My profile is public so anyone can visit/stalk. I am proud that all photos are either customers or mine. No fake videos, no fake photos, no staged photos. Just the real deal. As well I keep the story section going and will give you an inside look around the shop. Give me a follow if you choose too. https://www.instagram.com/nanoboxreef/ New NanoBox Shopping Cart : The website will be updated within the next two weeks with a new shopping cart. Currently the store is hog-pog and lacks a flow. The new one will be powered by Shopify and offer much better shopping experience. It should offer text message alerts, Facebook alerts and other communication besides an email. NanoBox Office Tanks : This is something I feel very strong about. I build hundreds of lights but what good does it do if I do not use the exact setup? The past year I have buckled down and really focusing back in the hobby. Take a look at a few of our tanks. I had a small incident with two tanks at the office. However they will be setup this week. IM40 and IM30L. Reefer 170 : NanoBox Quad : NanoBox IM10 : NanoBox Tide : AquaMaxx + UNS Tanks : NanoBox Flares NanoBox + Brightwell Aquatics : I am a Brightwell Ambassador for both marine and fresh water. This was a big decision because I do not like being held down to ONE product. However after testing all products I was confident in doing this. Currently all planted tanks use all Brightwell products and all reef tanks use Brightwell salt, additives, etc. I wanted to give a shout out to @metrokat for linking me up with the team. I have put together two videos showing the products off and how I use them. Coral Food : Feeding Time Lapse : NanoBox Flare Line : I will be pushing the NanoBox Flare line for fresh water tanks much harder this year. The arrays have changed and will be uploaded on the website. More on this soon! Shows/Events : I will going to more shows this year. However I will only be setting up a booth at a handful. If you would like to meet up please contact me! - Reefstock - Denver CO - Reef Dreams - Charleston SC - RAP - Orlando - RAP - New York - Rap - LA - Reefstock - Australia - 60/40 NanoBox + Innovative Marine : This has been in the works and have new photos and two new tanks featuring there stands, tanks and few accessories. Please stay tuned for more! New Products : I am working on new products. Most a ways out but I want you guys to know I am innovating. Thank you all for the support! Thank you for all the photos. Thank you for all the feedback. Thank you for all the ridiculous emails. Without you guys I would not be here. Three years doing this full time this March! Maybe a give away is in order? -Dave
  9. Hi everyone, I recently upgraded to a larger tank from my Nuvo 10 and am no longer using this light. The light is in perfect shape other than one corner of the acrylic cover over the leds. I have that shown in a picture below. The piece still tightens down and was done during cleaning. I bought the light in late August of 2016. The power supply was replaced by Dave in May of 2017 due to a buzzing sound. It has been running at 70-75% and grew anything I wanted. Fan and heat sink were just cleaned when I took it down a couple of weeks ago. Price is $170 plus shipping.
  10. 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
  11. Welcome! This is my "8 gallon" (probably closer to 5) softy reef. It's been running since about August I think. The goal was low-maintenance, no testing, just the occasional WC and salinity check. It has a Nanobox fixture, an ATO and a cheap-o airstone skimmer (for aeration, not intended to control nutrients). I keep a small bag with some AC that I change out every month or two. I do water changes (~1 gallon) once or twice per month, using IO salt. The focus of the tank is the bubbletip nem, but it features a variety of mushrooms, some zoas, a ribbon gorg and a lobophytum. The damsel is a recent addition from my now-defunct frag tank, he has been happily gorging himself on all the pods. There is also a brittle star and a bunch of cerith snails. That's pretty much it, happy reefing!

  13. As the title states, when attempting to log into the Bluefish app (Samsung S8+/latest Android 7.0 updates installed) I receive an error noted in the attached image. - Bluefish app is up to date - attempted to uninstall/reinstall, no success - phone reboot, no success - unplugged/plugged in Nanobox Duo unit from power source, no success - attempted to "register new device" in Bluefish app, app freezes/is forced to close - shook the app and provided Bluefish with the error, awaiting response Has any one else ran into this issue before? All was working fine yesterday, no changes to the wifi settings in my home or on the device.

  17. About 6 months ago I joined this forum and started a IM Lagoon 25 as my first ever fish tank and posted an aquarium journal but never really got into the habit of updating the post. With that said, I ended up moving into a smaller apartment a couple weeks ago and I chose to downsize my tank and sell off some of my livestock, corals, and equipment because I may be moving again next year. I plan on being much more active in posting updates as well as on the forum in general. So without further ado... here's my new Fluval Evo 13.5: Equipment: Livestock: Pictures: Thanks for looking!
  18. What else should I add to this tank, just ordered a light from @DaveFason so I can finally start Adding some better coral, wanted to know what you guys think I should throw in there! Definitely needs to stack more rocks
  19. Hey all, So while I'm figuring out lighting, MarineDepot drops a bomb on the price of the AI Prime HDs for now only $200. And here I thought my mind was made up. Well, after some research again, now I'm debating. So I've come with a couple questions for those who have been around since LEDs have been the hot item. I'm trying to find a semi-concrete answer to what light is capable of maintaining an SPS tank. However it seems that a lot of the answers are either not clear or indifferent at best. And search results haven't been helpful either. So with that being said: My tank to be built is a standard 10 gallon AGA tank. Which is more reputable? The AI's or the Nanobox? Which is capable of maintaining an SPS tank of this size? (Standard 10 Gallon Tank) I assume both can be used as a refugium light with the proper focus in the proper spectrum? I'll be buying two of the ones I decide on to simplify running things. Thanks in advance for helping me learn more about LED tank lighting!
  20. Hey nanoreef, So super excited about recieving my Nanobox duo plus m today, but now Im a bit lost in all the settings. Who else got theirs today? Anyways, Im wondering if the default nanobox channels are fine for the tank to leave as is, The second question I have is, the blue is a bit strong on my eyes, and wondering if anyone might know how to get a little away from the total actinic look? maybe 10-15k range? Also, with this lighting change will it change my corals colors drastically? I know my acan has changed much from when I bought it which i chalked to exessive zooxanthellae from different lighting making it yellow/green and wonder if this lighting will make it more towards the correct color of orange. a reference for the color change anyways thanks to everyone for the replies
  21. UPDATE 2, need them gone!!!! I have these black Hybrids I am no longer using. They are the 4x24” T5’s and 4x v3Led cluster. They show some wear but I’m sure Dave could repaint to whatever you want. Also you’ll need new acrylic light covers. 475 each!!!! OR trade for MP40QD or Wav set.
  22. the not so nano 80 gal

    tank history: so last year after moving twice my 55 cad lights had another crash. So i sold everything and said the hell with this hobby, but as all reefers know i caught the itch not even a year later. started looking around on nano reef, reef2reef and eventually found a deal i couldnt pass up even though i kept telling myself i wouldnt.... new tank goal: try not to blow all my money on corals and equipment.... at least thats what i tell myself. In reality i just want to keep a thriving reef tank that will surpass my old tank. equipment list deep blue 80 rimless 4 bulb dimmable ati w/ attached reef brite XHO 4 bulb ati with nanobox retro vertex omega 130 skimmer vertex 180i diy cheato reactor kessil h380 lit refugium jebao 4000 return pump mp40 and mp10 150 watt heater neptune apex dosing kalk to keep parameters in check but will eventually install a calcium reactor current stock list i may add 1 or 2 more smaller fish but that wont be till later on blue tang yellow tang yellow eye kole tang lightning maroon clown gold nugget maroon clown sunburst anthias blue star leopard wrasse corals tank will be a prominently sps tank with some lps at the moment Tank as of July 1 2017 Mid August September a month of diatoms and bacteria October 1 2017 post Hurricane Irma everything survived dont mind the mess in the sump. ill eventually get to cleaning those cables
  23. Hey guys! I will be traveling Wednesday - Sunday this week to visit Innovative Marine, attend Reefapalooza LA and visit customers. If you are in the area please check out @Marine Depot booth! They will be showing off a NanoBox Mini Flare over a planted aquarium. I will be attending the show for a couple hours a day so lets link up! I would love to meet a few of the west coast customer base. These events are some of the best out there. Don't miss it! -Dave
  24. Hey nano-reef, After a recent post asking about a recommended light to use, it seems the nanobox duo plus m is the best option for me. I wanted to upgrade my lights, but im held back from getting a new nanobox duo/duo plus m due to budget. I figured its not very justified to buy a new ai prime hd or tide if what my aquarium really would be set is with a duo coverage wise. but on that note, I am also interested in a used tide/tide plus m. I am hoping someone has one they are not using and willing to sell to me. Please PM if interested with offer, and thank you for reading the post. UPDATE: thank you those who sent PMs, I have bought a duo plus m.
