So I’ve decided to join in on the 365 day challenge. I’m mostly a lurker on the forum but have been around a long time. Tried to do the IM 14 peninsula challenge a few years back but had just had twins and man were they a lot of work! 😂 Just couldn’t find the time or energy to keep up with the tank. But they’re almost 4 now and it was actually them wanting a Nemo that got me going in the reefing world again last spring after a long hiatus. Looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun and some really unique tanks and ideas! Below are the quick basics to start. I’ll update thread with my plans as I decide just what I’m doing. 🤔 Specifications Tank Waterbox 10 cube (14.2”W x 13.8”D x 13.8"H) Lighting Aqua Illuminations Prime 16 HD Filtration Intank media rack chamber 1 Bio pure chamber 2 Rock and Sand bare bottom NanoRox Heater Neotherm Flow Undecided Auto Top-Off AutoAqua Smart Micro ATO Undecided on reservoir RO/DI From local LFS Salt Fritz RPM Livestock Fish Inverts Coral MORE TO COME.
Starting a series of NanoRox product highlights. So getting right to it...today I am highlighting the NanoRox Frag Wall. The Frag Wall hold 4 frag plugs and includes 2 sets of neodymium magnets (fully waterproof). The Frag Wall measures 8 in x 6 in and is perfect as a backdrop to your live rock. In fact, when positioned properly it can give the illusion of additional live rock in your nano lending greater depth to your reefscape. If you would like to learn more about the Frag Wall and about NanoRox in general, check out the website at www.nanorox.com. To purchase the frag wall, click here. If you have not already, please follow me @nanorox1 over on Instagram. Happy Reefing!
Full disclosure first. I won the naming contest for the Hotel Palythoa, which earned me a free initial production of one! I decided to sweeten my order by adding a pair of PicoRox to it, which I paid full retail for. The pictures here are of the pair I received, not stock photos. Ok, Pics: These things are really cool. I had been thinking of a way to attach some leftover rock to my back wall, but hadn't finalized anything. In that research I stumbled across the NanoRox and thought "hmm, very neat, but I'm sure they will be crazy expensive and they have no track record." So I never even clicked on the retail site, and moved on. Then the naming contest popped up for the zoa garden, and when I had a chance at winning, I started to look at these PicoRox again. Price was actually really reasonable, even with shipping. $38 shipped, for the pair. Sorry I didn't get packaging pictures, but they are encased in heat shrink with a @NanoRox business card stapled to the package. Simple and functional. No instructions, as they are obviously self explanatory. One small magnet on the back, and another fully encased in the resin body of the rock itself. My pair included two small frag discs which fit into the holes on the Rox themselves, which was a nice touch and appreciated. They are super light! Surprisingly so. This is good, as the magnets can withstand more coral weight as opposed to being "used up" supporting the Rox. The paint is a spot on blend with my CaribSea Life Rock. In the tank lighting, it is completely indiscernible from my aqua scape structure. As a business, Duane is super responsive, down to earth, and just like you or I, but with an exceptional talent for sculpting and painting! I think very soon the shipping times will start slipping on these as he will have such a backlog of work to do, so get in on it now! In the coming days/weeks I'll have more time to go further on this review, but in the spirit of doing this right and not jumping to too many conclusions I'll stop there for now. I'll grab some pics of the back of the Rox, along with the magnets for the updates. One more thing, I will say, I am already eyeing the "Full Monti" as a frag rack as opposed to the ever popular single row acrylic versions. Personally I'd rather have zero frag racks, but we all know that is near impossible, at least at some points over our tanks life. Thank you so much Duane and @nanorox for bringing these to the community! I know that along with myself, many others will be extremely satisfied with this product! TLDR Initial Takeway: Wow!
The plans and measurements are done. Almost ready to go to the laser cutter. Going to make one change and that is to not include a back panel. I am going to keep the back side open so I can add a light on the back for some chaeto if I decide later. This tank is a standard 10 gallon I am converting to an AIO (less actual volume for corals and fish once converted) and will be used as a display tank for my NanoRox at a local store. Im excited because the entire tank will just be NanoRox so instead of having a rock display in the center like you always see it will be all rock ledges around the sides leaving the center open.
