  1. Hi everyone, I've started a new build, and have decided to document it in this journal so that you might follow along (if you're interested). Background: I used to have a wonderful tiny mixed reef picotank for the last few months which brought me much joy. Unfortunately, 2.6G of volume wasn't enough to grow out all my corals, and I did add more than 60+ frags in that little tank. Eventually, I decided upgrading was the best solution. I needed a tank that wasn't too large that it would become a burden doing WCs, but not too small that it didn't have enough space to accommodate all the corals either. I settled on a 10G+ tank - it was roomy enough to meet my requirements, and most importantly, be simple enough to WC every week. I used the Tank Transfer Method (TTM) to upgrade, and used established cured LR (~5-years-old) from older systems as a biofilter. Only the LS was new, but I seeded it with a small cup of LS from my picoreef. The new nano is now located in my bedroom, and the temp. dips down to as low as 25'C (night) and as high as 30'C (very hot afternoons). The swing seems wild, but my pico operated under the same temp. range (more or less), and so far the animals didn't have any issues with the temp. Specifications: 10.23G tank 18" x 12" x 11" Rimless 6mm Crystal Glass Equipment: H300 Dophin HOB (440L/Hr) Aqua Knight Spectra M029 (30W) Jebao SOW-4 Wavemaker (4000L/Hr) Media: Activated Carbon Filter Floss Rocks: Established LR taken from my previous 2.6G's picoreef, 60G's refugium & 10G's nanocube in the library Sand: 4.5kg Aragonite Live Sand --> seeded with a small cup of LS taken from the sandbed of my 2.6G picoreef Water: Tap Water + Dechlorinator (Nutrafin/Prime) Salt: Fritz RPM Fish: None for now.

  2. I'm upgrading my 20G mixed reef to a 60G. I've decided to start a journal a bit ahead of time - the tank has already been paid for, and is currently being built by my LFS.

I'll also be adding various types of macro to the fuge in the sump, as well as slowly stock up on corals as I go. Otherwise, this will mostly be a TT from a 20G to a 60G. I currently have ~10kg of LR in my 20G. I'll be adding an extra 20kg LR to the 60G (split between DT & sump) - I've already been cycling some dry rock for nearly 2 months in a storage bin in preparation of the upgrade. All the equipment except the return pump is now with me - that will come when they deliver the tank to my house. Here's a basic sketch design of how the DT & sump looks like: This is a pic of how the cabinet will be (as texted by my LFS manager to me this afternoon): The color of the cabinet will be black matte: And this was the two of us discussing and adjusting the sump design repeatedly over the past few days: I left the sump design up to my LFS manager to decide. I'm not confident in designing my own sump, tbh, and he's more experienced than I am, so he'll be getting to it. The salt used will be Fritz RPM. I'll be mixing the salt a day ahead of the tank's arrival so that we can quickly scape the system and get it filled up and running as soon as possible. This whole setup did cost me a lot of time, effort, planning and money, but I think it's worth it. The main reason behind this upgrade is because my 20G is cracking, and the crack is angling towards the bottom panel of the glass - it's just a matter of time before the tank collapses. The secondary reason is because my Starry Blenny is too large and I think he'll appreciate a larger tank. The whole system will be set up in my bedroom, and no fans or chillers will be used since my room is quite cool enough, especially when I turn both the fan and A/C on at night. Will update when the tank arrives. Stay tuned! 🙂

    Mushroom Mystery

    Hello fellow Reef enthusiasts. I am the proud owner of a 32 gallon Coralife Biocube which I've had for almost 3 years. I need a little help in identifying the mushrooms in this picture. I know that the big green ones and the reddish ones with the green eyes are palythoa mushrooms, but I don't know what kind exactly. Can one of you experts please help me out? Also, can anyone identify the flat, bumpy mushrooms? Thank you in advance for your help.

    Paly pest or disease?

    My palys have been browning and now there's something on one. It looks like it's skirt is gone, too. Anyone help ID the white bit so I can figure out what to do? I may not be in the right forum... The ones with the most brown are the oldest of the colony. They have started to grow onto my rock so I cannot remove them. Tank params are within normal limits with the exception of phosphates (I'm working on getting them under control) and I'm at the higher end of the Ca and Mg. I have AI Prime HD under the hood of a Fluval Edge 12g.
