  1. UPDATE: Most Recent FTS 11/12/19 (***The following description was back in July 2015) Hey guys so I've had my nuvo fusion for about 4 months now (3/15/15 start date), and things look pretty good so far from what I can tell. (Besides a Cyano problem, a little bit of bubble algae, and my nano tunze ATO flood malfunction) I work as an electrician during the day (11 years now) and a fish hobbyist at night. I have been into fishkeeping for over 10 years now and I've always wanted a nice nano salt tank. So about 4 months ago I decided to upgrade my small crappy 5 gallon salt tank to a nice AIO. I chose the nuvo fusion and I am VERY happy with it so far, here's what I'm working with.... Setup: (current as if 3/17/18) -Innovative marine nuvo Fusion 10 gallon -Kessil a160we (with gooseneck and 90 degree attachment... with the spectral controller) -Tunze Silence 1073.008 pump (used as an upgrade rather than using the weak stock pump) -Hydor Koralia 425 (powerhead) -Hydor Koralia Smart Wave (powerhead controller) -Tunze Osmolator Nano (ATO) 2.2 gallon kalkwasser mix -IM Spin Stream attachment -IM Ghost skimmer (protein skimmer) -Finnex 50 watt titanium heater -Cobalt neo therm 50 watt back up heat -Tunze Mini pump 5024.040_A (very nice tiny poverhead type pump for caves or bottom flow) -Power center by coralife (makes things so much easier to unplug...it's like my power controller center) -Custom caddy with chemi-pure blue nano, purgen and phosguard -10 lbs of live sand -8Lbs of dry rock Livestock: (Livestock has been updated as of 3/17/18) Tail spot blenny 1 Barnacle blenny 2 Royal Gramma 1 false clown 1 dwarf zebra hermits 5 turbo snails 2 blue legged hermit 1 nassarius snails 2 cleaner shrimp1 Corals: (corals have been updated as of 3/17/18) zoas acans blasto palys hammer candy cane duncan Favia Ricorida mushrooms Yuma mushroom Rhodactis mushroom Gsp Montiporas

    DreC80's Reefer XL425

    Hello Nano Reefers, been in the hobby off and on since 2004...but due to military service I haven't been able to keep a reef going for more than a few years at a time. On a positive note, this has allowed me to start up several tanks and learn as much as possible, especially from my mistakes. Throughout the years I've browsed several the of reefing community sites, but never created a profile or interacted with folks. I decided it was time to finally create a profile and start this journal in an effort to document my tank's progress over the next couple of years. I'll be able to retire in about 18 months and would like to eventually start a large reef in the 200 gallon range. My desire to start this current tank was to begin building my coral collection in order to transfer them to the larger system upon retirement. My plan was to keep it as simple as possible, reuse the equipment I had on hand and see if I could successfully grow SPS corals in this "smaller" system. Got the tank wet and started the cycle in January 2018. * Upgraded to a Red Sea Reefer XL425 - Sep 2019 Parameters: Temp: 77.8 Salinity: 1.025 Calcium: 395 - 415 Alkalinity: 7.5 - 8.0 Magnesium: 1260 Nitrate: 20 ppm Phosphate: .03 Equipment: Aquarium - Red Sea Reefer XL425 Return Pump - Simplicity 120DC Flow - 2x Nero 5, 2x Icecap Gyre 4K Lights - 3x Radion XR15 w/ diffusers & Aquatic Life T5 w/ 2x blue plus & 2x coral plus bulbs Dosing Pump - ATI 6 channel Skimmer - Simplicity 240DC Heater - Eheim Jager 250w x2 Controller - Neptune Apex EL Filtration: Skimmer Filter Socks Carbon (occasionally) GFO (sparingly) 85 lbs Marco & Reef Cleaners Rock Dosing: ESV Calcium and Alkalinity Brightwell Magnesium Acropower Stability (on occasion) Livestock: Fish: Wyoming White Clownfish Six Line Wrasse Falco Hawkfish Scribbled Rabbitfish Captive Bred Yellow Tang Captive Bred Rolland's Damsel x3 Corals: Jack O Lantern Leptosaris Green Leptosaris Mr. Freeze Leptosaris Meteor Shower Cyphastrea Burning Banana Stylocoenela LA Lakers Scroll Coral ORA Purple Stylophora Green Stylophora Birds of Paradise Seriatopora Sunset Montipora Slow Burn Montipora Red Montipora Cap Seasons Greetings Montipora Cap Rainbow Montipora Mystic Sunset Montipora Orange Montipora Digitata Green Montipora Digitata German Blue Polyp Montipora Digitata Jedi Mindtrick Montipora Tubb's Stellata Montipora Green Goblin Anacropora JF TNT Anacropora Cali Tort Acro GARF Bonsai Acro ORA Frogskin Acro ORA Pearlberry Acro Bali Green Slimer Acro Miyagi Tort Acro ORA Red Planet Acro JF Coolers Champagne Acro JF Fox Flame Acro Pink Lemonade Acro ASL Red Robin Acro JRC Great Unknown Acro JRC Oscar the Grouch Acro JKR Apocalypse Now Acro FHC Kryptonic Acro Blueberry Limeade Tenuis Acro RRC Pink Cadillac Acro TCK Orange Milli Acro TCK Pikachu Acro TCK Rainbow Acro TCK Molten Core Acro TCK Pink Bear Acro Sanjay's Leprechaun Beard Acro ARC Fireworks Acro CC Firewalker Milli Acro WWC Lil' Red Ferrari Acro WWC Yellow Tips Acro Katropora - Acropora Subulata Thanks for looking, Andre Nuvo 30l - 2018 Red Sea Reefer XL425 - 2020
  4. Just a little something to track my piece of the ocean. The Goal is to experiment and just have fun with the hobby. I’ve always been amazed by fully stable nano ecosystems and this is my attempt. SYSTEM : Tank: Innovative Marine NUVO 20 Peninsula Stand: IKEA SEKTION 30x15x30 Shelf Lights: Maxspec Razor R420 Return: Mighty Jet Nano Rocks: DIY Structure with Rubble Dry Rock Sand: Caribsea Fiji Pink Media: Intank Basket running Floss and Carbon Skimmer: NUVO Ghost DCSkim Heater: Cobalt Neotherm 75W (too long) Wavemaker: Just using return for now (IceCap 1k Gyre I got has too much flow- considering Aqamai KPS) ATO: Smart ATO Micro ZeoVit Experience CAPTAIN’S LOG : 6/3/20- Just started the process and excited to see the results of an Ultra Low Nutrients (ULN) system before my eyes and scientific approach to good reefing. Dosing is literally a few drops a day but there’s a serenity and simplicity to it. 6/8/20- Just continuing with the process. Debating if ZeoVit is still the path I want to take for the tank. I’m mostly keeping softies and lps while the tank ages and they like their dirty water. Going to be fun tong feeding the elegance and goby! LIVE STOCK: Fish: Two Clownfish (Black Snowflake and Snowflake) Considering (not all lols): Yasha-Pistol pair, Snarknose Goby, Small Blue Star Wrasse, Tailspot or Lawnmower Blenny Inverts: Just a few snails as tank doesn’t have enough food for shrimps and crabs to scavenge Will for sure have a Blood Red Fire Shrimp!! Corals: Different Zoanthids Duncan Firework Cloves Favia Avelopora FULL TANK SHOTS : 6/4- Just got the IKEA stand home and built. Moved the tank from it’s cycling location to its permanent home. Started the ZeoVit method with the base package. Got a few corals from some local buddies and put them temporarily on the rocks- watching to see how they react during the starting ZeoVit process 6/8- Added Elegance, Frogspawn and Yellow Clown Goby 6/25- Kinda gone overboard with the corals but everything is loving life 😅 got two fire shrimps also. Starting to see some algae but that was from over feeding so I can see the shrimps go nuts- will dial back feeding haha 7/05- Replaced the light with two Ai Primes and very happy with how well I mounted the lights above the tank.

I’ve been lurking here since...2008? That can’t be right. I was, frankly, too intimidated by all of you incredibly talented humans to attempt a tank journal when I started my IM Nuvo 10g a couple of years ago, but since I woke up one morning last month and saw that my checking account had been stimulated, I figured I’d give it a go this time. Background My current tank is yet another @teenyreef inspired IM Nuvo Fusion 10g, and has been running in its current iteration for the past year and a half plus. It is perilously close to fully grown in - the coral have been skirmishing for some time now, and I fear a declaration of war from the Euphyllia is inevitable. I could start fragging and trading away corals...OR I could upgrade the tank. The stimulus check made this decision incredibly easy. I’m most proud of the frogspawn - grown out from two to eleven heads Goals Get more color in the tank - my current tank is very green and teal dominated. I’d like to get a better mix of harmonious colors, without going full cosmic bowling Start keeping SPS - to help with the above, I’m hoping to stock some Montipora and Leptoseris and will be dosing for the first time ever. I’ve gotten decent growth in the 10g by simply relying on water changes, but I’d like to take a more hands-on approach this time and challenge myself a bit more. Work on my photography - I have a decent amount of photography experience, but I’m simultaneously unhappy with my aquarium photos and too lazy to get the dslr out. I usually end up taking snapshots with my iPhone. I’m hoping that this journal will give me a reason to put the work in. In researching this tank upgrade, I came across @schgr.cube and @Pandy's tank journals, and found their work to be incredibly inspiring. Hopefully I can make some progress on this front!
  6. Hey guys, a friend of mine just gave me this skimmer and I'm wondering if any of you have experience with it. This is my first protein skimmer and I have no idea how to set it up. I watched the IM YouTube video for it and read the manual. The water level comes up to quickly and quite frankly I just don't know what I'm doing. The tank I'm using it on is my nuvo 20. Any input is appreciated.

    Bay Area Nuvo 10

    Hi all, and hi to the Nuvo 10 community! For the past year or so, I've been wanting a reef of my own, and I'm now addicted. I decided on the Innovative Marine Nuvo 10 for the compact size and transportability, given that I plan to take it to college eventually. As of the moment I am writing this, I currently have put the rock and sand into the tank, after cycling the rock for about 3 weeks in a 5-gallon bucket using Fritz Turbo Start. The sand is Fiji Pink, and the rocks are Walt Smith 2.1. I have the tank on the 10 gallon white JBJ Nano Cubey Stand, which looks really great with the tank.

  8. Hey Everybody! We’ve been lurking for a couple months and decided it was about time we started a journal. Background - We had a 75G mixed reef about 15 years ago. It was a ReefReady Oceanic with a refugium/sump, skimmer, and metal halides. It was a lot of fun but eventually the maintenance didn’t fit with our schedules and we decided to get out of the hobby for a while. About 5 years ago we got back in with a 5G Ecoxotic EcoPico. It was filtered by a MarinePure ROCK and a Koralia 240. We eventually bumped up against the constraints of that system and decided to get something a little bigger with some more flexible filtration options… and here we are. The ATO, heater, fan, and temp controller came over from the EcoPico. Everything else is new. We tried the MarinePure ROCK in the new tank but it was just really boring looking so we switched to the CaribSea Life Rock and put some MarinePure spheres in the fuge basket.

I really need to glue some stuff to those rocks. Overall, everything seems pretty happy. 9/30/2018 - The giant green mushroom decided to relocate itself and the bird's nest fell over. I'll try to actually get it mounted this weekend. 9/15/2018 - You can see the leather in the reflection back in the corner. The ramekin has a loose mushroom in it that I'm trying to coax into attaching to a frag disk.

    STL Reef Odyssey

    Ok so after lots and lots of thinking... We decided we are changing tanks from our JBJ NanoCube 28. I got tired of the bright white lights off the NanoCube and wanted more of a blue color light, like the Kessil gives off. So I setup the Nuvo 20, that was at the school, in our living room. So I will be "breaking down" the NanoCube and it will be given a rebirth in my classroom in the fall for our club. I plan on keeping all the rock that is in here live and cleaning up the tank for the new school year and putting it on a smaller stand so the kids can reach it. Here is my Journal for the new tank. Equipment: Tank - IM Nuvo Fusion 20 Pump - MJ-1200 (Pulled the Stock) Light - Kessil a160we (Bought from here, DIY Mounted with Spectral Controller) Heater - Finnex HMA 100W Heater ATO - Want to use the AutoAqua Smart ATO (Not the Micro) but it did not seem to work with the black glass on the back (Anyone else have problems with this?), so right now I have a Tunze ATO (can’t remember exact model.) Filtration: Rock - 20Lbs Dry Rock (I think BRS - Sold at Local LFS, was gonna be for a Lagoon 25 that never happened) Substrate - Ocean’s Direct Caribbean Live Sand IM Media Basket(want to upgrade to inTank) with their Mechanical Sponges, had good experience with them in the classroom, may switch over if I get InTank baskets Filter Sock - Nothing in it at the moment, just there to catch debris Goals for this tank: Over the last year and 4 months I have maintained a 28 gallon NanoCube with pretty good success, there were a few things that I wish I would have known when getting into the hobby. For one how much I hated putting my arms way down into a deep-ish tank when doing maintenance. Two how much it costs for Chemi-pure elite every 3 weeks. I also hope to keep a much more engaging Journal that folks can follow along with us. So I kept both of these things in mind when setting up this setup, I made sure that maintenance of the tank will be very easy, ie. ample room to work in the tank and around the rocks to stir up the sandbed and keep that clean. Secondly the goal for this tank will be to run very little in terms of chemical filtration. I wish when i set up my first tank that I understood more about “refugiums” and MacroAlgae, so I specifically am planning on incorporating some form of refugium in the back chambers and a couple display macros that will help with sucking up excess nutrients. Ideally with a child on the way, this tank will take minimal maintenance time - 30-60 minutes a week not counting running an algae magnet over the glass every day or so. Another thing with this tank that I am excited about is controlling exactly what goes into it, the 28gallon I bought from an LFS fully setup (I am sure now that I overpaid lol.) So with this one I am going Dry Rock with a couple rubble pieces from my Pico to help seed the tank. I originally bought the dry rocks that I did with a scape in mind for a Nuvo 25 Lagoon tank that we thought we were getting, that didn’t happen. When I bought the rocks I immediately began “curing” them in a 10 gallon tank with saltwater and an AC70 with just a sponge in it. I did this because I had read that dry rocks tend to “leech” phosphates and from what I can tell it’s because they were not cleaned very well based on anecdotal evidence. They have sat in there since April with water circulating and being topped off every few days, about once every week or two I would take a turkey baster and blast the rocks to get as much dust out of them as I could. Towards the middle of May I put a couple pieces of rubble Rock from my pico in there and then week before Memorial Day I put a bottle of Bio-Spira in the tank… This is where I may have made my first mistake, after dropping in the bottle on a Wednesday, my wife decided we were gonna take a last minute vacation for Memorial Day before the baby comes, so i was not able to test levels during this time. When I came back my Ammonia was reading “Zero”, Nitrite was “Zero” and Nitrate was between 60-80. I did a 50% Water Change and dropped in some more Bio-Spira then left for almost a week to help my best friend move from Chicago to Burlington, VT. When I came back the tank was measuring 60 Nitrate and No Ammonia or Nitrite, so based on all that I have gathered about the cycle of a reef tank, my cycle was finished. This past Friday June 8th I finally got the stand together and bought the upgraded pump. On Saturday I got the sand and water and proceeded to fill the tank up. Again still no Ammonia or Nitrites showing, Nitrates were measuring in at 10-15. After all of this I just decided to set the timer up on the Kessil and find a schedule and put some macro algae in there. After a couple of days of the Macro doing fine I added a small frag of Frogspawn to test the waters. Everything seems to be happy! Planned Livestock: Planning on Moving over our fish from the 28 2X Clownfish (Standard Occelaris and Darwin) 1X Pajama Cardinal New Additions: Possibly a Tailspot Blenny or Goby/Shrimp Combination Planned Inverts: Cleaner Skunk Shrimp (Already have in my 28Gallon) Rock Flower Anemones - Planning to have a “Garden” of them off the Left Side of the Aquascape Snails - Will have an Assortment of Trochus, Nassarius, Turbo, Fighting Conch and Astreas (Don’t think I will do Hermits this time around) Possibly a small urchin down the line Softy Corals: Assorted Zoas - Goal is to cover the “arch” with them as they grow out. Ricordeas - Planning to move over my Blue, Orange and Green Florida Ricordeas and maybe add a few more to create a “Ric Garden” on the Bottom Right of the rockwork (there is sorta a cavish area there) LPS Corals: Hammers - I have two currently in the 28 that I plan on Moving over, will be placing these up on the rocks above the “Ric Garden” along with…. Frogspawn - I have currently in the Nuvo as a “water-testing” coral (they should be fine next to the hammers, based on information that I have read) Probable additions: I will most likely try my hand with Acans again, I like the looks of them but I think the lights in the JBJ NanoCube were just too much for them. Hopefully this time I can keep them, planning to keep them on the substrate most likely under the “arch” Candy Canes - Thinking I will move over the Candy Cane Coral that I have in the 28, but only if I can figure out how to successfully kill the vermitid snails that are coming out it is in many different places lol - Not sure where I will place them yet probably above the RFAs once they settle in. SPS: Really I’m not the biggest fan of them, plus I know our Family Lifestyle does not bode well for the demands of most SPS, but I have a Birdsnest that has done phenomenal for us in the 28gallon and I plan I keeping that as well. FTS 8-21-18: FTS 7-13-18: Picture of the Rockscape with ideas of where I plan to place corals: Picture of the Rockscape without the colored circles 🙂 Here's a quick pic of the two tanks next to each other. I have put a lot of thoughts into my fish so far in the tank and I would ideally like to add one more so I will put a couple of options down below and maybe you all can give me some opinions on adding those. I have also put a lot of thought into the corals that I like and would want, I am thinking I may also add some Dendros down the line or if you think there is anything else I should look at adding please let me know. Let me know what you think and if I am missing any key information here for being successful? Or just your thoughts on my plans! Thanks!

    Bageezus's IM Nuvo 20

    Okay so I decided to get back into reef keeping. I still have a few freshwater tanks sitting around and finally just got the itch to start up a new tank. I decided to go with a IM Nuvo 20.

Everything was ordered today, so hopefully I will have it all by mid week. Still deciding if I want this to be a bedroom tank or a living room tank...
  12. Hello all. As the title states this is my post about building my nuvo 20 reef. I currently have a 150 reef at home and wanted to put a smaller tank at my office due to the fact that I spend 40-50 hours a week there and will have the time to enjoy it. The deciding factor for me was that a recent dental journal did a report stating that 5 min staring at a fish tank lowers stress levels and pain experienced (which allows me to make this a business expense). The tank will be sitting on a shelf in my dental operatory and floor space is limited so I cannot use a stand to store anything. Although the tank is rimless I need a canopy so the led does not shine in my patients' eyes when I lean them back (and it hides everything). The electronics will be mounted on the wall below and to the left of the tank and I will be building a small wood cabinet to hold all of it. I will also be building a cover for the ATO reservoir. All wood will be stained to match the wood trim in my office. I recently upgraded my home tank to a digital aquatics Archon and had a reefkeeper elite sitting in a box so it will control this tank. My hardware will consist of: Nuvo 20 INtank media basket in right return with filter floss and chemipure blue IM media basket in left return full of live rock rubble with filter floss on top. 2 cobalt mj1200s as return pumps, each going to a spin stream an eheim jager 75watt heater in right accessory spot SB reeflights 16" wifi led frag freaks magnetic float switch holder in ATO reservoir for low level sensing. 2 eshops triple probe holders, one in left accessory spot for reef keeper pH and temp probes and one in center return area for 2 float switches and return hose mounting. Digital aquatics reef keeper elite with sl1, sl2, mlc and 2 power bars 4.5 gallon acrylic ato reservoir from advanced acrylics. custom base for tank custom canopy custom ATO reservoir cover custom electronics cabinet. I will update this thread as the project progresses over the next couple months. here Is a pic of the current progress

    Filter Media in Nuvo

    Hello all! I was just wondering what all you IM fusion owners run as filter media on your tanks. I am currently cycling my IM10, and am currently only running poly filter in my media basket. Anybody run carbon? Also am thinking about buying the refugium and adding cheato.
  14. So I'm jumping back into the hobby after a few years, sorta. My first nano was a Fluval Edge 12g. Let me just say it was a learning experience and PITA to maintain. A couple of years after breaking that one down I got a JBJ Cubey 3g. Also a PITA but I managed to have it last up until now with 2 rock nems and a small frogspawn that survived.

    Torn Between 3 Lights

    Thinking about getting an IM Nuvo 10 gallon and am debating between 3 lights. The aquamaxx nemolight (here) , a single par30 led 18k bulb (here) , and the Hipargero 30W light (here). They are all in the same ballpark cost wise, I want to keep it budget friendly and under $100. Each seems to have advantages, the nemolight being the most controllable and easy to use, but the most money and least amount of power. I do like its programmability and the thunderstorm feature. The other two seem to be similar in power and cost (minus the cost of the fixture for the bulb) but lack control and need to be manually dimmed (or not dimmed at all) and therefore are pretty much either on or off. It would be nice for them to ramp up and down during the day but I guess its not a dealbreaker. Also, how long until the single bulb would need to be replaced? I want to be able to have some SPS if it is at all possible. Anyone have any thoughts? Or other recommendations staying in the <$100 range? Thanks for any replies.

    What skimmer for Nuvo 20?

    I'm currently using the IM ghost but i'm not happy with it, ant recommendations?
  18. After being out of the reefing hobby for a bit, got the bug again and decided to go nano! Wanted a smallish AIO and the IM Nuvo Fusion 10 fit the bill. Below is a link to a short video of me setting it up (including a serious brain-fart!) and a couple of pics. I'll post updates periodically. Â
