I’m one of those people that has flitted off and on the forums over the years. I’ve also been in and out of the hobby. I’ve had freshwater off and on for about 15 years. I had a saltwater Fowler tank for a few years in high school but gave that up when I went to college. I’ve wanted to get a sw for years but I’ve been pretty unstable as far as taking temp jobs all over the country, living abroad and traveling tons. But now I’m kinda settled down a bit and decided it was finally time to jump back in! Back when I had my sw I tried my hand at a couple easy corals but they never did all that well. They kind of existed but never thrived. I suspect I was just too immature to understand how to truly care for em. Anywho I’ve been planning this comeback for a while and today I drove on over to my LFS and picked up my fluval 13.5 evo. I decided I really like the look of the tank, the price was right for what I was looking for and it’s not too big- but not too small. I’m super psyched to get the ball rolling. My intentions at the moment are to keep the stock lighting (kind of the point of getting an all-in-one system right? Haha) and I plan to mod some extra blue leds on in there (I saw a journal where someone did that here). I plan to pick up some eggcrate and also mod the filtration as it seems most everyone on her does. I’m not suuuuper diy minded but I love doing it (I just kinda suck at it, so we’ll see). Ive picked up all my extras as far as test kit and sand and even about 11lbs of rock from the lfs. I plan to get it thrown together tonight and to get that cycle started. I do still need to go get the eggcrate and some media for it. My plans inhabitant wise are still pretty up in the air. In the past I had a clown (honestly it’s been 10+ years and I don’t remember exactly which as far as percula or which). I had a sixline wrasse that I LOVED but unfortunately lost to a surfing accident. I had two cardinals and a bicolor blenny (ended up being the most active and interesting fish in the whole tank). - this time around I’d love to try some different things but my heart still tugs at the clown (why do we all love them so much). And I’ve been thinking perhaps a different species of blenny. But who knows. As as far as corals I want to start off real easy, so I’m thinking some zoas and maybe a hammer. I once saw a tank that had green star spread across the back wall and I loooved how that looked. Soo. We’ll see where I end up. Sorry now im completely rambling. In any case, I’ll document my journey here. And I consider myself an experienced newbie... any and all input is always welcome. I love to learn and grow and won’t be annoyed by friendly advice!

    30 gal. long simple reef

    Hello I’m new here but not new to the hobby. Here is my simple reef. its a nuvo black 30gal long. I use a tunze comline for surface skimming and filtration MP10 and a tunze nano pump for flow. 3 AI prime HD for lighting. smart ATO for top off. and a bubble magus dosing pump for dosing two part.
  4. Hello NR! It's been awhile since I had a tank. I kept Freshwater and Reef tanks in High School and College and now I'm 40 and got hit by the reef bug again! This time it was my son's fault! He got a freshwater tank and I just had to get one! You guys have been a great inspiration throughout the process. Tank - Innovative Marine 10 Light - Prime HD Modifications - Sicce 0.5 Return Pump Tank was setup on 3/28 and I've been cycling it with Dr. Tim's Ammonia to do a fishless cycle. I'm now at the point where I can add 2ppm Ammonia and Nitrite is at 1 PPM the next day. Have a good amount of algae growing on the rock and sandbed. So I'm close but think I still have a week or two left in the cycle. I look forward to adding to this thread!
  5. Got a Fluval Evo 13.5 for $100USD when it’s on sale. Immediately upgrade most of the equipments since I will be keeping corals in the near future. I had a 65G SPS reef tank for 5+ years before and call it quits last year since I don’t have time anymore and the tank was neglected. I got the itch again and decided to get back in with a nano reef since it’s smaller and doesn’t take long for maintenance. This time around I’m automating as much of the tank as possible to prevent making it feel like a chore. Equipments: - Hipargero LED 60W on a mechanical timer. (Soon to pick up a AI Hydra HD this sunday) - Stock return pump, although I have a cobalt maxi jet 1200 that I could use but for now the stock pump is sufficient. - Aqamai KPS (Picking up a Vortex Mp10wQD this Sunday) - Intank chamber 1 media basket - 100 watts cobalt heater - Eheim automatic fish feeder - Autoaqua nano ATO - Dry rock with some live rock rubbles - 20lbs live sand Tank has been up for 2 weeks. Live stocks includes 2 oscellaris clownfish, 2 blue legged hermit crabs, a few pulsing xenia (eventually have to pull them because these will grow like weeds but I like the pulsing action). Will add more fish/ corals as tank matures.
  6. 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!
  7. Well everyone, David here. (aka) @Intriguing Inverts I figured I would start some documentation on my journey in the reefing community starting from just a novice working at my LFS to what I’d like to believe is a self sustaining and accomplished reefer. Im now nearing 8 months into this reefing hobby and still loving every minute of it, I was fortunate enough to find out in 2018 I had a new LFS open up literally 2 blocks from my home in St. Louis, and without that happening I would never be as far as I am today. Last year walking into the door of my LFS Art of Aquaria, I never realized I would not only be making an amazing friendship with its owner Jacob Bugger but also be stepping into a totally different career path then what I had been accustomed to before. Well a year and a half later and I honestly don’t think I could be more happy with my transition from a Culinary Team Leader and Chef to Store Manager at a Saltwater and Freshwater Fish Store. Things definitely took some time getting used to but after making the shift I wouldn’t have it any other way. Not only have I been able to make some really cool friendships and acquire my own 12 gallon long reef tank donated to me by Jacob, but I’ve also been able to help Art of Aquaria become a staple in the Tower Grove South neighborhood here in St. Louis, MO. Its great not only seeing a small business grow, but also being a part of it along the way. Never in a Million years would I have thought my Hometown cross street MorganFord which used to be just bars, would now be a quarter mile strip of so many pop up ventures and endeavors, well as of July 2017 by far my favorite aspiration for this community was sprung, opening a beautiful store front for a wide array of saltwater and freshwater fish. So please if you’re in the Metropolitan St. Louis Area and you’re like me and love all things aquatic, come stop in sometime and say Hello. 😄 Alright everyone now that the introduction is out of the way let’s actually document some Progress! In January of this year I took home a beautiful Mr Aqua 12 Gallon long reef tank, equipped with a Finnex 24/7 Planted Plus light and began the saltwater cycling process. I sourced most of the rock from the previous setup at the store and also got some live rock encrusted in coralline algae to kickstart the cycling process. However at this point I still had no idea what I was going to use for a filter or if I was going to sump it, I didn’t even have any flow in the tank I was using 2 ReptiFlo 200 circulation pumps. Lets fast forward a little bit to when I started trying to figure what I wanted to actually put in this beauty of a tank. First addition to the 12 Gallon was a Pom Pom crab, love these guys such big character for such a little crab. Then I decided one invert wasn’t enough for me and I decided to go with the Hosting Glass Venus Anemone Shrimp and a Mini Max Carpet anemone, well obviously the tank in these early stages wasn’t forgiving at all to the anemone and the shrimp slowly lost his home as the Mini-Max slowly sunk into the most established part of the tank it could find, which was a hole about the size of a frag plug. 😩 Got another Anemone Shrimp and figured I would try my luck with RFA’s because I heard they wouldn’t move as much and they can also host Anemone Shrimp. Well I woke up the next morning to my Anemone Shrimp who had eaten the tentacles off of one of my RFA’s 😡 Well at this point I had given up on the Anemone Shrimp and moved onto the belief that a Sexy Shrimp 12 Gallon mixed reef would be a good idea... Boy was I wrong, man can those guys do some serious damage to SPS corals. I purchased 4 of these cool looking shrimp thinking they would make an excellent addition to my tank, and I was hoping they would just hang out on the RFA’s and Mini-Max Anemone, living the good life while they got target fed cyclopods, mysis, and frozen rotifers but they slowly made their way to my Seriatopora Birdsnest, and it was demolished in a days time. At this point I was fuming and trying to remain calm because it seemed every avenue I turned trying to house these little critters and make them comfortable in a natural environment I was getting some kind of negative impact to my corals or nems ! 👎 So I figured hey I’m just gonna make this the best looking mixed reef I can and whoever wants to peacefully live here is more than welcome to so my search for the perfect cohabitants continues. But hey let’s talk about some Coral, “Have we still not covered the Coral?” That’s the funnest part of the tank, well at least I think so, I know some may differ because of their sheer love for fish and I totally respect it, but man do I love some eye popping Coral, it just really adds that depth and real layer to a tank, like man that’s thriving! There was no way with the tank I was given I wasn’t going to have one of those thriving reefs I had seen on YouTube and from all the customers showing me pictures on their phones of their amazing reef tanks. They were so colorful and had so much going on I had to delve deeper into this after all, I had a great baseline understanding of how things worked and what they needed to grow just listening and learning at the shop day to day. So what was gonna hold me back from one of these thriving reefs? Nothing I said, absolutely nothing! I love a great challenge and if this was going to challenge me to become not only a better reefer but a more patient person along the way, then I was gonna give it all I got. So I got started on stocking my mixed reef with an assortment of stuff. I started off with easier to care for things like Ricordea Florida and Leptoseris, they did good but with a under prepared and ill equipped novice things went south. Like I said I was not equipped for the task at hand and eventually due to neglect and sheer lack of care a few of my first pieces died under the hands of a beginner. Well I eventually started getting myself ready for what I knew was going to be a daunting and long road of trial and error, I made sure to go out and get a refractometer, I was making sure to stay on top of water changes and manually topping off, I was persistently looking up different tips and tricks to see some success out of this hobby and after months of what seemed like back and forth reading on probably many of the same articles and subjects I think I have finally dialed in my 12 gallon long reef for the long road of success! Most recently I have updated my lighting system I now currently have 2 Ai Prime HD’s over the nano reef and everything seems to be doing great! I really love the control the AI Primes deliver I’m still able to keep my candy blue reef tank and have great growth at the same time. Lets get down to some Tanks Specs and my routine maintenance, finally! 👏🏻 12 Gallon Long Nano Reef: The Mixed Reef (35.4" x 8.3" x 9.4") •Setup: January, 7th 2019 •Lighting:Previously the Finnex 24/7 Planted Plus ran on just whites and blues, now I have 2 AI Prime HD’s and here is my preset. •Filtration:AquaClear 30 with MarinePure Biobrick, Seachem Matrix Carbon, Phosguard. •Flow: Jebao OW-10, could really use another one •Dosing: Im currently dosing Aquavitro’s 8.4 for Alk and Aquavitros Calcification for Calcium every three days, and I also broadcast and target feed their Reef Fuel once a week. •Testing: Right now I am currently testing Alkalinity twice a week and Calcium once a week with Hanna’s Digital Checkers, I honestly don’t know if I would enjoy testing as much as I do without them, I’m hoping to get the Phosphate checker as-well but for now nothing has been negatively effected with consistent feedings and running the Phosguard. I want to give some shoutouts to some really great customers and friends who have helped me along the way, I don’t think you guys realize how appreciated you are, I’ve probably asked you similar questions a million times over and it’s only made me a better reef keeper thank you both so much! 🙌🏻 @inland_reef @This guy is extra salty

    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

    Fluval Evo 13.5 Peninsula

    Decided to document the Fluval Evo 13.5 journey on Nano-Reef Received the tank July 20th from Amazon, no damage thank god! Mostly set up for my 4 and 2 yr old daughters, had to breakdown my IM 25 gallon a few months ago due to being away for work, huge money loss as expected so I didn't see myself coming back for some time, but we got the itch right away, love this hobby and the community. Plans were to keep the tank completely stock and ultra low budget, reason I got this set up in the first place, well that changed a week later when everything stock went out the window.... keeping it simple still though Replaced the following Light AI Prime HD Sicce 1.0 pump Hydor nano power head Chamber one filter floss Chamber two In-tank Media basket w/ filter floss, chemi-pure and Fluval bio rings Weekly 3 gal water changes pic below is from 7/25 I have since added a few pieces of coral more pics coming

    Ultimate Nuvo 10 | Aquascape

    Hey guys, I’m new to the “nano reef forum” community but not new to nano reef keeping. Follow me and the progression of my Innovative Marine NUVO 10 build. My goal with this tank is to ultimately keep a thriving “sps and zoa” dominate tank “most likely” (more on that as time goes on). Last night I spent a couple hours aquascpaing my tank and here the end result. I fixed all the rock work together with some putty. Let me know what you think! I kept the aquascape “low” to allow the sps to grow upward and fill in the empty space beautifully. I also left a lot of empty space on the bare bottom to allow corals to fill it. Thank you you for tuning in! I’ll keep updating the tanks progress as time goes on! Tips and tricks are always helpful! Enjoy the rest of your day! 
  11. Hi Nanoreef, this thread will be the history of my reef tank in my dorm. I purchased this biocube from a local reefer who sold me the entire setup.

    My Nuvo 10 build!

    Not sure how this whole journal thing works but thought I would keep this journal for me (and others to keep up with) I am on day 32 of my tank build. my equipment -Kessil A80 Tuna Blue -stock return pump (soon replacing with sicce 0.5) -heater (Petco brand not sure exact one) Not sure if I should get a nano protein skimmer?? My LFS said it’s probably not necessary but I’m gonna do more research my live stock has built up quite a bit and here’s what it’s loaded with -2 occe clowns -2 hermits -1 conch -2 snails -1 pink torch coral branching 3 heads -candy cane colony (15 heads) - green hammer coral branching 1 head -2 orange/gray acan -3 ricordea -1 gsp -1 two head red mushroom - 1 cabbage coral -1 zoa 6 heads ( eagle eye) -1 Kenya tree Plan on getting some frogspawn, more zoas and torches. Also want one more small fish but not sure if I will have enough room Since I’m already a month late on posting this I’m going to post from the day water was put in my tank to my pics I took tonight Note I have been very indecisive and have changed my aquascape, arrangement of corals, and my actual live rocks a lot in just this month 😂 hope you guys will enjoy following along!! Many input is appreciated greatly! Day one Day 3 added my live rock Week 2 cycle complete time for fishies and some corals week 3 more corals! Week 3 1/2 did not like the top arm so removed it and made more flat simplistic look Week 4 got two new ricordia sand 2 acan!!! Week 4!!! just got a new candy cane colony, torch, and center price covered in coraline! Can’t wait to see how this turns out in a year from now!!!

    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

  16. 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
  17. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  22. 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!
