  1. Some of you guys may recognize my old build thread, and remember that I was contemplating changing my system to a Reefer 170. I ended up going a different route, settling on a Ultum Nature Systems 60U. I've spent the past few weeks assembling a stand, building a new sump (with a frag compartment), and figuring out how to incorporate a doser system into my tank. I unfortunately suffered some coral STN/die-off after a huge bacterial bloom halfway into working on my new stand, but fortunately the bloom resolved and the corals are slowly recovering. Accidentally broke Mame, picked up ELOS MIDI as current tank. Stand: (45Lx24Wx30H) Assembled from 2x Ikea SEKTION Cabinets (Veddinge White) with Birch-White Washed Butcher Block Tank: Ultum Nature System 60U (~24x14x14) with frosted background ELOS MIDI Flow: -2 MP10s on Long Pulse Mode Sump: Repurposed Mr. Aqua 11.4G -Ice-Cap K250 -Sicce 2.0 Return Pump -Innovative Marine Desktop Reactor (80ml Carbon) -Tunze Nano ATO Frag Tank: De-rimmed 6Gallon Fluval Edge -El cheapo return pump and powerhead Lighting: -ATI 4x24W Powermodule: 2C+, 1B+, 1 Giesemann Super Purple -Nanobox Duo for Frag Tank (100% Blue, 33% White) -Nanobox Mini for Chaeto/Refugium (100% Blue, 30% White) Dosing: -Marine Magic Doser CoralBox Wifi Doser with Aquaforest Component 1, 2, 3 Without further ado, here are the pictures: 3/13/2018 1/21/2018 11/25/2017 Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr 11/8/2017 10/29/2017 Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr 10/24/2017 Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr 10/15/2017 IMG_1284 by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr IMG_1283 by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr IMG_1288 by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr

  3. 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!
  4. Hi everyone, I have been posting sporadically on here asking question regarding my tank build but here is my official build thread! A little background, this will be my first attempt at my own reef tank but my parents have had one for years. I just finished graduate school a couple months ago and decided to take the plunge and get into reefing myself! My equipment list is as follows: IM Fusion 20 Gallon Custom Stand (still being made, counter-top will suffice for the cycle) Nanobox Duo plus M (waiting to receive, cycle will run without light on anyway) Sicce Syncra Silent 1.5 100W heater IM Custom Caddy IM Spinstreams x2 (arriving today) 15lbs Pukani Live Rock 20lbs CaribSea Special grade sand I do not want to run a skimmer on this tank so I am still trying to decide what to do with the two inner chambers. I plan to eventually run chemipure blue and carbon in the custom caddy along with fliter floss. I will probably be purchasing another caddie and place filter floss and marine pure spheres in it for more biological filtration. I am also contemplating plumbing an algae reactor in my stand for nutrient export (pump in one of the two internal chambers) but that is still up in the air. Any thoughts on what I should put in the last chamber? I still have lots of rock work to do but I was trying to get everything setup and running last night and this is where I ended up. Before Water Just Filled After some rock work Like I said I am sure I will move the scape around a million times before I am settled on something I really like but I appreciate all thoughts and suggestions!!

    Sapling's Nano

    Hey everyone so I've been on here a while but never documented my DIY 25g since I started it back around march last year, well I regret not documenting it, and lately I've been wanting to start up a smaller tank, so I thought, why not make a thread so I can record it so I can look back on it? I figure this way I can also learn from others and try to keep my questions in at least a lesser amount of threads. So its been official, I took the plunge on buying 14 ibs of BRS reef saver along with some hanna reagent about an hour ago. I made my tank DIY last time, and although I am still interested in doing that since I can tailor it to my needs, Im not the best craftsman wise. So I am currently looking into a couple tanks before I pull the trigger later tonight. it seems I have a couple options Im most interested in; the waterbox 7g or 10g IM nuvo fusion 10 I am a bit torn between the nuvo 10g or waterbox 10g. the fact they are plug and play is a nice bonus, compared to when I did my DIY, as doing a false wall is a bit frustrating when attempting not to shatter acrylic from drilling or scoring. the two are essentially the same price, although the IM nuvo comes with the lid, so I am leaning towards that. How does everyone who has one of these feel about the back chambers? I am currently debating between a Bare bottom tank or at least shallow sand. I never tried a Bare bottom tank and I think I'd really enjoy the look and cleanliness of it since Im already bad at vacuuming my sand in my tank. what do you guys suggest? my planned inhabitant will be either my Rainford's Goby or my Tail Spot Blenny from my 25g. Lately I've seen some random aggression from the blenny towards the Rainford, and Im planning to take one of them out, leaning towards the Rainford. I feel conflicted about putting the rainford in the 10g if its a Bare bottom, since he hasnt taken prepared food (live BBS, frozen, pellet) yet but picks at rocks and sifts the sand. I'm not sure if its refusal of prepared food or rather him being so passive, my other fish take it from him before he has a chance to eat? Besides hopefully the goby once cycled, I do plan to stock with coral, although Im not sure which yet, I know I have a few frags of zoas in my 25 without a home yet, but I also do really like the look of euphillia, and ricordeas. maybe euphillia on the top with zoas and rics mid to low? the lighting will be my finnex 12" Planted+ until I am sure about which Light i want, I am currently thinking of a par LED bulb to hang over, but I might get another nanobox light, just depends what I end up doing, and feels better to me. For my Filtration, I feel like I dont have too much space to play with like I did in the 25g. what would you guys suggest here? I imagine a skimmer would be useful for phosphates, plus a small bio pellet reactor for nitrates, but I am interested to see what others would say instead. maybe purigen and phosguard? not sure yet, but plenty of time to think. Maybe just cut a portion of my chaeto and carry it over, with activated carbon. ~~ anyways Im sure that might be TLDR but thanks everyone who read, I love seeing other peoples journals for reference, and learning from their experiences with their tanks, I'm hoping mine can help someone elses once it matures.
  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.

    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
  8. 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.
  9. 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. Potassium, vitamin c (beneficial for zoanthids), and magnesium is added to my top off reservoir. Bi-Weekly 5g water changes Huy runs his own light schedule that works really well for his reef. Give Huy a follow on Instagram! Minireef114 Enjoy! -Dave
  10. Hello reefers, While i am slowly collecting everything for my reefer 170, I bought an im fusion 10 for a good price (not easy in europe) and thinking about setting it up as my first saltwater tank. I sold my freshwater tank and i'm officially fishless and it kinda sucks . Planning to run it skimmerless (like Gena, she does a wonderful job with her fusion 10) and just keep up with water changes. If i really need to use one i have an atb nano hob skimmer for backup. So what do i already have: Tank: im fusion 10 Stand: ikea kallax (do you think this is strong enough?) Pump: eheim compact 300 (new one, should i buy the 600?) Heater: eheim thermopreset 50watt Water movement: mp10wqd Light: Nanobox mini tide plus m ATO: Tunze 3152 Now what ato should i get? Tunze nano osmolator 3152? Should i choose the prime hd or the kessil a80? I actually want a mini tide but it's to expensive to import it to Belgium Couldn't resist and bought a nanobox mini tide plus m, i wanted that light for over 2 years now. Figured it be worth the extra cost. Here are some pics: What do you think of this aquascape? Planning to only keep a few corals like a frogspawn or torch and some acans and zoas. i also want one fish to keep the bioload low. Not really sure which one to get. Perhaps a purple dottyback or a tailspot... Cheers, Rory

  15. 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 4 channel Nanobox Duo M inside of it. So total it has 2 24" T5s in the front and back each with individual reflectors, and a Nanobox Duo M (4 channels, moonlight channel, & 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 $290.00 USD shipped. In my opinion it is worth it for the Nanobox alone. Thanks for looking.
  16. Over the past few months I have had customers ask about options for those with bad WiFi, no WiFi or a different option for connecting a NanoBox unit. After testing this myself for months it has worked without a hitch. I run this on my personal office reef. There are a few disadvantages but for those who set and forget, this may be for you. How To : Turn personal hotspot on cell phone. Using a second device, connect the second device to the phones hotspot. Once connected open the Bluefish app. Start a new BlinkUp and connect to the hotspot WiFi - Make sure you are putting in the correct password. Once BlinkUp is completed, program your light to the desired settings. I would use the NanoBox presets. Close app and enjoy! Disadvantages to this : If power is lost, you will need to turn the hotspot Wifi on and allow the controller to sync back to network. If you need to adjust settings, you will need to turn the hotspot WiFi on and allow the controller to sync back to network. This is a great option for someone who has bad WiFi, corporate WiFi and no WiFi. Video to come! -Dave
  17. 5 NEW VIDEOS! NanoBox, Aquatic Life, ATI, and MORE! Fast facts about our customers' favorite products!
  18. 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

    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
  23. 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.

    New NanoBox LED Color : Mint

    NanoBox is excited to introduce a new color to the NanoBox lineup, Mint. The color was discovered after switching to the Luxeon C LED on the V3.1 array. We have been using Lime for three years and have had incredible success. The mint spectrum nearly mimics lime however has a peak under the 450nm ( wavelength ). As you can see in the graph below marked with light pink. What does this mean for reefers? A better overall color, better blending and a more ideal spectrum. We have tested this spectrum for over a year with amazing results. Our original Lagoon 25, IM Drop Off , Fusion 10 and now our Red Sea 170 have used the mint spectrum. Along with many of our loyal NanoBox customers. The mint color has a "greenish" tone however once you blend with royal blue, blue, cyan and violet you will see how it shines. Mint Only : Mix : When will this be implemented in the NanoBox lineup? We made the switch back in November! We started to hear more and more people talk about the color looking better and glad we made the switch. Mint costs a few cents more but is well worth it. Will we be able to run the mint channel independently? Yes, if you would like. When ordering I would need to know. If you currently have a Plus M model we can change the wiring to separate the mint. Experiments? We have been running all of our tanks without any white supplementation for sometime. The results have blown us away. While there still needs to be true testing done ( spectrograph ) we believe this is a step forward. Creating a "reef" spectrum without white. If you look at 90% of the LED lights out there the white channel is marginally used. NanoBox will be sending a unit out to be tested utilizing only mint, royal blue, blue, cyan and violet. Rainbow Chalice Under Above : Have questions? Ask away! Happy reefing! -Dave
  25. TJ's Bust'em Up [and go] Custom Reef! Welcome to my build thread! Well, rebuild thread I suppose... or maybe upgrade thread? The Details: This thread is going to follow me taking my very new reef, and completely redo the guts of the aquarium. This will include the sump, plumbing, skimmer, fuge/frag lighting, etc. and I am going to go custom with all of it! Or nearly all of it. The sump is being built by Pro Clear Aquatics, the light by Dave @ Nano Box Reef, and I am going to use colored plumbing to match it all up and take the vanity side of this build to the next level. The Livestock: As with all of my builds, I am planning to go primarily with colorful sticks and clams. I really can't help myself... I just can't reef any other way and feel satisfied. The tank was originally set up with LPS and Softies to keep things simple and look full as fast as possible for a video shoot. With that concluded, I am moving over to sticks ASAP! As you read on through this thread you'll see I've already begun to move out softies and bring in SPS. Nothing too fancy just yet, but as things settle in I will get my hands on some more impressive pieces. I am not necessarily going to be chasing down "designer corals" because they tend to be heinously over priced, but rather just focus on getting some nice colors from the LFS or trade with other hobbyists for nice frags. For fish, the tank is currently home to a pair of Percula Clowns, Starry Blenny, and a [likely cyanide caught] Convict Tang. Details on the system can be seen in the original post below. ------------------------------ Original Post Below ------------------------------ Alright folks, I'm just going to leave this thread here... Lots to do before I start really posting about what is happening, but lets just say I have a new reef, its already set up, but I think I am going all out custom for the sump / plumbing etc. and will kick off the thread once everything arrives! And yes, I will probably go crazy with sticks like I did last time. This time I will hopefully avoid any mass die offs caused by acro specific viruses that can not be controlled... Sad times. THE FUN BEGINS IN 10, 9, 8... About the tank: European tank, low iron glass, holes drilled at the top of the rear panel, utilizes XAQUA INOUT overflow system, grey stand with removable front panel for a ton of access. Dimensions are 70 x 50 x 50 cm (roughly 27" x 20" x 20") About the scape: I used CaribSea Life Rock to give the corals something to grow on. Mix of the standard boulders and the branches paired with a bit of smashing, stacking, and putty eventually lead me to this scape. How far along is the build? So this reef was hastily assembled for a video shoot (not for a build series, but rather for a commercial of sorts to introduce a new product/line from a well known company) and was never intended to hang around. Once I got it up and running with corals and a few fish, my daughter became quite drawn to it, and my wife doesn't hate it, so I figured it should stay. Of course, I should have known that the second I set up a reef I'd be bitten by the bug... What are the plans? I am planning to change up most of the corals and go heavy on the SPS, but more importantly, I want to completely redo the guts of the system. I slapped this together with great equipment, sure, but I want to go custom and really make the system my own. I have already gotten in touch with Pro-Clear aquatics who have ordered my custom acrylic and will be building a sump for me based on a modified design I sent them yesterday (23/02/2017) and I will be getting some pretty plumbing to really turn this system into a hot rod (no flames though...) So, if you stick around, this thing should get pretty interesting relatively quickly! I assume the sump will be at my place in a few weeks, and that is when we can really kick things off!!!
