    a simple evo

    Hi This is my very simple nano tank. The Tank has been up for about 1.5 years. The rock and some coral is actually much older from my original tank first established in 2014. I had a larger sps/lps dominant tank but at the beginning of 2017 I moved to a smaller apartment(closer to the beach). I was hoping to revive my 50, but My wife and I also had a baby last September, so I have been selling off my higher end equipment and dumping the idea of upgrading anytime soon. Tank is a Fluval evo 13 Filtration: Intank media basket for chamber 1 Filter floss Chemipure blue (changed once a month) Seachem Matrix 250ml in a bag at the bottom of chamber 2 apporx 2.5 pounds sand about 5 pounds live rock Circulation: Lifeguard aquatics quietone pro 800 pump I have no wave maker on this tank. I do not like the look of the waverers in this tank it is too big. The pump i have is rated at 240gph which is sufficient for my needs. Lights: Nanobox duo +m I had a mini as well but I got a good deal from another nano box member and i find it has much better coverage on the evo than the mini. Probably over kill. Contoller: Apex Jr with ph probe and fish feeder
  2. New build in progress from last night! Our 2g counter top reef is getting a tank-lift! Sleek and clean is a must due to the small spacing and we wanted this to be an easy to maintain Nano system. New updates will be added to the thread below so make sure you always check the latest post for updates or you can also follow our instagram @OceanboxDesigns Our New Counter Top tank! This 2G tank is going down! and down it was! New tank is up and clearing up...Best thing was I didn't have to cycle this tank since everything was transferred from the 2g. Now comes the fun part! Scaping and stocking!

  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. 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
  5. Started this tank on March 30, 2017 with stock pump and filter sock, koralia nano from previous tank, and 5 lb of LR, and about 8.5 gallons of saltwater to start. The tank is almost a year old now and some upgrades have happened. (will take some better pics with the camera later) Equipment -IM Ti ATO (going to tunze nano ato) -Ran a kessil a80 for 11 months before going to a radion (diffusion kit/rm -Jbj 1/15 hp Chiller with 1.0 return -Sicce 0.5 return - inTank Media rack with 2 filer floss on top, seachem matrix, bottom two filter flosses -inTank universal media skimmer -was running a IM desktop Media Reactor with carbon but since the RMS mount is fairly big i had to remove the reactor (don't mind that because its freaking study!) So in turn I have a Fudge basket that I might run with more matrix in it if the tunze 9001 doesnt work out (coming) -MP10 wQD -inTank Frag rock (2) - 5 lb LR -3 lb Sand (going to take down to less lb's till its barley covered probably -Cobalt Aquatics Neotherm 100w heater - 6.5 chemipure Live Stock: - Rainbow Acans - Duncans - Walking Aussie Duncan - Purple Tipped Frogspawn - Young Maxima Clam - Rock anemone -3 nassarius snails -3 Trochus Snail -3 Aussie young scolymia/s? LOL -Side plant is one of 3 succulents I got at a baby shower and decided to try to grow it under the XR-15 instead of my bedroom window lol, so if they switch out ever that why. Let me know if you have any thoughts on the tank! Plan on upgrading to a Lagoon 25 at some point this year I hope!

    How to avoid Palytoxin?

    Hello, I have been in the beginning phase of starting a nano reef tank and have been researching corals. And recently I ran into a thing called Palytoxin and it is scaring the crap out of me. I read that only zoanthids carry it but I have also read stories of people getting poisoned from live rock. What corals have the risk of having Palytoxin and how can I make sure any live rock I get is not infected? Thanks
  7. Hello guys (NOTE this photo is not mine i just edit this photo to get the idea) im going to setupnew tank with all new plan, and i never saw this type of design anyware on internet so far, thisdropoff design is very simple,it just a matter glueing 7 inch tall glass middle of the tank and then fill the space with deep sand bed. in addition to refigium(microalga display) im thinking of running HOB biopallets reactor for this tank i need you guys feedback of this tank design, will it works ? Pros and cons ? thanks chathura

    Long nano tank with hidden tech

    Hi! I got my first reef setup about 8 months ago, and its going great. But as you do this for your first time, you soon realise what you should have done different. So, I'm slowly sketching on my second reef, which will be sumped, and with no visible tech in the display. Ive been doing som sketching on different overflow ideas, but kind of ending up not wanting even a slim ghost box on a short side, I want it to be invisible. So this is what I have so far. Dimensions 900x250x250mm. Glass frame on top for more stability and prevent jumpers. Herbie overflow with 20mm pipes, and one 20mm return. All hidden in rock work. Now since im not working in 3D anymore my skills are a bit rusty, but the rock work will contain of lots of small pieces glued together, roughly in this shape. Now I want your feedback. Anything you can se is totally wrong, something I havent thought about? Attaching one images with just pipe work, and one with rock/sand/box. Best Regards Samuel Horn
  9. Hey guys im new to salt water tanks, and didnt want to go straight in to having a massive tank, plus i like the concept of smaller reef tanks. I come here today in hopes of finding more knowledge on starting and maintaining my tank. Earlier today I purchased an aqueon 100w heater as well as the aqueon 500 pump. I was wondering what a good 10 gallon tank would be as well as a good light and some filters. Also im curious.. are supplements needed in a tank? I plan on having a few corals, and later an anemone. Again i'm VERY new to saltwater tanks in general and i love the challenge. Thanks in advance!

    AquaOne Nanoreef 35

    Hi, Below is the set up I have in my AquaOne Nanoreef 35 Tank, is there anything you would change, move around, add or remove. Thanks in advance.
  11. Hello, I had a circulation pump, which stopped working a few days ago. I'm thinking to buying a return pump, because it's more cheaper! For my aquarium with soft corals how many gallon per hour would be better? Maybe 130 gph? Bye

    The Pinnacle Peninsula

    Hello everyone! Some time has passed and I started to get that itch again. It happens to be some convenient timing too, now having graduated and started my career I don't face as many constraints on my setup, which is a nice feeling. This isn't my first reef nor my first nano, I tried to track progress on my last build here, but as you can see I didn't post very consistently. I had that setup setup running for about a year or so, but unfortunately had to break it down due to some financial constraints, aka being a broke college student. That said, I learned a lot of lessons. I'm hoping to carry some of these things to the new setup. My girlfriend and I just moved in together this past week, were in an apartment now so the tank had to be on the smaller side. I was really loving the new IM Pensinsula series, everyone was grabbing up the 14g, I liked the sleek look of the 20g so that's what I ordered. I had originally planned to set it up in a Peninsula format, but unfortunately once we got all the furniture in, I couldn't really find a spot I liked where I could set it up as a room divider. I have some equipment I saved from my last couple setups. Namely my AI Prime and my Jebao WP 10 which I will be carrying over to this build. I learned from the 24x24 that evaporation drives me crazy and topping off without an RODI and ATO is a major major pain. I learned my lesson this time and bought an RODI so I don't have to make constant runs for distilled water. I'll likely be ordering an IM ATO soon. A Reefkeeper Lite is on the radar as well, with hopefully an eventual upgrade to a gyre over the jebao. As far as the scape goes, I have some crappy phone pics that I quickly snapped this morning, I'll update with dslr pics when I get home. I'd like to try and keep a lagoon-style scape/livestock choice going because I liked the natural look of my last tank as everything grew in. My father's side of the family is from an island in Greece called Chios, easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. One of my favorite beaches on the island is named Vroulidia, and it was a bit of an inspiration for the scape. Initially I thought I had wanted to do two separate islands, but I came to like this one flowing mass. The rockwork also curves in from back to front, with the sand bed sloping up to the back right. I may plant a mangrove back rhere, we'll see. I definitely plan to stock in plenty of macroalgae. Let me know thoughts/opinions. Here's a pic I took of Vroulidia: Thanks for looking!

    New design in the work!

    I'm very excited working on a brand new design. I've looked all over and choices are either inferior Chinese or DIY. What is it? Feel free to take your best reef educated guess!

    Nuvo 10 first reef ever

    So pretty sure I am hooked... I just bought my first ever salt water tank. The nuvo 10 ran me about $230 out the door purchasing all the basics with it: live sand (10 lb), live rock (8 lb ish ) , ammonium nitrate and bacteria (fishless cycling Dr. Tim's) pre set heater(78*) , and bag of instant ocean. I am super excited to start this tank although I am ready to be patient in the process! I am currently cycling my tank and cheking my ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and phosphate. Once I can get my ammonia to 0 within the course of a day I will do a water change and start by adding a clean up crew! I could not be more green at this hobby but when I saw my roommates nano reef, I figured what kind of person would I be if I never gave this a shot? I always had Freshwater tanks growing up and never thought I could take on the challenges of a saltwater tank. Nowadays this seems more like a manageable task giving my background in hydroponics. This site was recommended to me and since then this has been my primary source of information! Here is what I got so far.. my lady thinks it pretty boring, but if she just knew the potential this little tank holds!

    thought on reef jar #2?

    so this weekend i am moving everything from Reef Jar, into a 7.5g rimeless mr aqua cube... i plan on a little frag haul between this weekend into next week. i will be getting some xenia from a local reefer, and i plan to have it in my 7.5 for the time being. So this what i have in mind, i still have everything i need for the jar (except LR)...so i was planning to frag the xenia, but a taller rock in the jar and grow the xenia.....thoughts? i picture a tall rock with swaying xenia and a tiny tiny powerhead to be absolutely awesome and pleasing to the eye. what do you guys think?
  20. so im setting up a 7.5g cube here in the next week or so. and want to make sure i set it up correctly, and as ideally as i can.. i want to wanted to have a taller scape, with some sand in front so i can put a isolated rock with maybe a kenya tree or xenia...yes i know thats playing with the devil i am aware but its something i want to try .....any ideas for scaping with that small of a cube? anything helps thanks!
  21. Hi reefers i have 10000 Lph pump i have used for my old 90g tank, im going to build 24*20*12 shallow cube , is it possible to use this return pump for my newsetup ? planing to run cheato refugium and couple of media reactors in sump,and im not gonna use any wavemakers for this setup , i believe my return pump will make enough water moment in main display. what you guys think about my idea ?
