controlledentropy posted a topic in Nano Reef JournalsUpdate - 02/11/2018 The tank is officially 1.5 months old. Going through the ugly phase. Edit: This is funny. So funny. Apparently I ordered Fusion 20, NOT, the Lagoon 25. I'm not complaining, but I seriously thought I ordered the Lagoon. Oh well, now I dont have to think about the net top. Hello all, I finally took the step of ordering an IM Nuvo Lagoon 25 after admiring all of your beautiful tanks for almost a year. I have experiences in keeping a freshwater planted tank and I am now brave enough to take my snorkel to plunge into the world of a saltwater aquarium. I think saltwater will suit me just like freshwater does, because of my geekiness. My freshwater tank is over-engineered; I use a temperature probe, a light dependent resistor to measure general light level, and 2 Atlas Scientific, ph and conductivity (plus TDS) probes, connected to my Arduino, which is connected to my Raspberry Pi, which is connected to a website that logs live data feed from my tank. I also use a dosing pump to dose macro, micro and glutaraldehyde solutions 7 times each day in small amounts. I have 3 schools of Southeast Asian fish, and I am still not done as I haven't found my centerpiece fish. For my saltwater tank, I am planning to have a minimal amount of fish, preferably 1, up to a maximum of 2 fish. Hopefully, someone can suggest a stunning, centerpiece fish. As for corals, I would like to keep everything, softs, LPS and SPS. But, I would probably stay away from genus like Euphyllia, because I don't think this tank will be big enough for their poofiness. The one coral that I saw that literally took my breath away and probably the reason why I want to set this tank are Chalices. Man, I love how velvety their flesh looks like and how crazy the color of their mouths. I also saw some Leptoseris that looks like the outer hull of the Borg spaceship. So cool. I don't understand the appeal of Scolymia and Cynarina. So, I would like suggestions for my plans and some suggestion regarding stocking. I may use this December to cycle the tank - I have Cycle and Pristine from my freshwater tank and some ammonia too. Will be using dry rock with live sand. Here are my plans; Fauna - Vertebrate One or two fish - Preferably Not Clownfish (nothing against Nemo, but I think it's overdone, it's like the Neon Tetra of freshwater fish) Fauna - Mobile invertebrates (Are these too much? Considering that I only have maximum 2 fish) Fire shrimps X 2 Trochus snails X 2 Nassarius snailx X 2 Blue legged hermit crab X 2 Fauna - Sessile invertebrates (From the highest to lowest priorities) Chalice - Medium light, medium flow Leptoseris - Low light, low flow Cyphastrea - Low light, moderate flow Acropora - High light, high flow Favia - High light, low flow I think its pretty clear that I like encrusting corals with colorful mouths. LOL. Acan (Micromusa) - Low light, low flow Blasto - Low light, low flow Duncan - Medium light, medium flow Ricordea - High light, low flow Zoas - Low light, high flow Encrusting Monti - High light, high flow Hardware (Purchased) Innovative Marine NUVO Aquarium - Fusion Lagoon 25 Tunze comline Skimmer 9001 Aqua Illumination Hydra 26 HD Aqua illumination Hydra Flex Arm Ecotech Marine Vortech MP10wQD Quietdrive Water Care Aquatic Life RODI Buddie Hydrometer ATO Tunze Osmolator 3152 5G Food Grade Water Container Consumables Red Sea ABC Red Sea ABCD Trace Color Red Sea Coral Pro Salt Test kits Central Command Conductivity Probe ph Probe Full isolation shield Temp Probe Arduino Uno Arduino wireless shield Strike Force Etekcity smart plug (Can be hacked to turn on and off from the internet) Jebao DP-4 Auto Dosing Pump - Master A bunch of empty pop bottles for the ABC solutions, I am not gonna shell out money for $40 dosing "containers" 01/09/2018 - Video looks better than picture. 12/27/2017
