  1. TJ's Bust'em Up [and go] Custom Reef! Welcome to my build thread! Well, rebuild thread I suppose... or maybe upgrade thread? The Details: This thread is going to follow me taking my very new reef, and completely redo the guts of the aquarium. This will include the sump, plumbing, skimmer, fuge/frag lighting, etc. and I am going to go custom with all of it! Or nearly all of it. The sump is being built by Pro Clear Aquatics, the light by Dave @ Nano Box Reef, and I am going to use colored plumbing to match it all up and take the vanity side of this build to the next level. The Livestock: As with all of my builds, I am planning to go primarily with colorful sticks and clams. I really can't help myself... I just can't reef any other way and feel satisfied. The tank was originally set up with LPS and Softies to keep things simple and look full as fast as possible for a video shoot. With that concluded, I am moving over to sticks ASAP! As you read on through this thread you'll see I've already begun to move out softies and bring in SPS. Nothing too fancy just yet, but as things settle in I will get my hands on some more impressive pieces. I am not necessarily going to be chasing down "designer corals" because they tend to be heinously over priced, but rather just focus on getting some nice colors from the LFS or trade with other hobbyists for nice frags. For fish, the tank is currently home to a pair of Percula Clowns, Starry Blenny, and a [likely cyanide caught] Convict Tang. Details on the system can be seen in the original post below. ------------------------------ Original Post Below ------------------------------ Alright folks, I'm just going to leave this thread here... Lots to do before I start really posting about what is happening, but lets just say I have a new reef, its already set up, but I think I am going all out custom for the sump / plumbing etc. and will kick off the thread once everything arrives! And yes, I will probably go crazy with sticks like I did last time. This time I will hopefully avoid any mass die offs caused by acro specific viruses that can not be controlled... Sad times. THE FUN BEGINS IN 10, 9, 8... About the tank: European tank, low iron glass, holes drilled at the top of the rear panel, utilizes XAQUA INOUT overflow system, grey stand with removable front panel for a ton of access. Dimensions are 70 x 50 x 50 cm (roughly 27" x 20" x 20") About the scape: I used CaribSea Life Rock to give the corals something to grow on. Mix of the standard boulders and the branches paired with a bit of smashing, stacking, and putty eventually lead me to this scape. How far along is the build? So this reef was hastily assembled for a video shoot (not for a build series, but rather for a commercial of sorts to introduce a new product/line from a well known company) and was never intended to hang around. Once I got it up and running with corals and a few fish, my daughter became quite drawn to it, and my wife doesn't hate it, so I figured it should stay. Of course, I should have known that the second I set up a reef I'd be bitten by the bug... What are the plans? I am planning to change up most of the corals and go heavy on the SPS, but more importantly, I want to completely redo the guts of the system. I slapped this together with great equipment, sure, but I want to go custom and really make the system my own. I have already gotten in touch with Pro-Clear aquatics who have ordered my custom acrylic and will be building a sump for me based on a modified design I sent them yesterday (23/02/2017) and I will be getting some pretty plumbing to really turn this system into a hot rod (no flames though...) So, if you stick around, this thing should get pretty interesting relatively quickly! I assume the sump will be at my place in a few weeks, and that is when we can really kick things off!!!

    Minimalist Cube Build

    Hey everyone! My name is Matt, I live in beautiful Charleston, SC. This is my third build and the largest tank I’ve owned to date. I’ve been a fan of this forum since I started in this hobby in 2015 and felt like it was the best place to document my new build! So here we go. Picked up a rimless 50g SCA in August from a friend who was upsizing and finally got it up and running on 8/25/18. Wanted to go for a minimalist scape with some decent negative space for the corals to eventually grow into. I plan on doing a mixed reef with a decent amount of SPS and since I’m totally mesmerized by movement I’ll be loading up on Euphyllia. I feel like torches and hammers bring drama to an aquascape but also really like the contrast of encrusting corals like cyphastra and of course the colorful Acros branching all over.. With any luck and probably a ton of help from the NR community I’m hoping to make that vision a reality. Stats: Tank: SCA rimless 50g Starfire Glass Light: EcoTech XR-15W G4 Pro Skimmer: Reef Octopus 110S Liverock: BRS Reef Saver Sand: Caribsea Fiji Pink Salt: Brightwell NeoMarine ATO: IceCap Doser: Jebao iPhone photos don’t really show as much depth from the front as there is in person but you get the idea. Main Scape With the Fiji Pink (really dirty glass) Top down View from the couch ? Thats it for now, I plan to start updating this thread weekly. Cheers! Matt

  8. 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!
  9. Hey all, question regarding coloration/“pop” improvement with Ecotech Radion upgrade options.I’ve been running a G1 Radion for something like 6 years over my 34 gallon Solana. I’m pretty satisfied with output, and the spread is acceptable, corals grow fine, so no real “problems.” But I’ve never loved the coloration it gives my tanks, compared to what I’ve seen on other tanks with different LED’s or newer Radions. So I’m considering an upgrade. Obviously the most affordable option is to send in the one I already own for Ecotech to upgrade to the G3. And of course since I’m thinking about it, I’ve also been checking out the G4 and G4 pro. I don’t need the G4pro for the increased output, but I do like the idea of more color channels. What I want to know is: is it worth the upgrade (any of them) in terms of visual appeal and making colors pop? Will I see a noticeable difference from G1 to G3? Is G4 way better than G3 (aesthetically)? Has anyone made any of these leaps and can talk to how the corals appear under the improved spectrum? Will the G3 upgrade be enough to see that new “pop”? Is the G4Pro way better than the regular G4 in terms of color/“pop”?I’d love some first-hand experiences with this. Thanks!

    Anyone knows how to calculate PAR at different depth?
  11. Hello from cider making country sunny Gloucester in the UK, I've been lurking on a few forums for awhile and watched from a far and after 2 years after getting a reefer 170 and moving serveral times I thought it's time to finally get it up and running and see if I can keep it going long enough to get it looking as good some the tanks on the forum. I've only been in the hobby 2 years so class myself as a "newbie" so any help/suggestions with the tank would be great my wish for this reefer 170 is to be mostly SPS with a few LPS for flow and movement, looking at a monti dominated tank with chalices growing on bare bottom and maybe a hammer coral here and there.

  12. I started out with 3 XR15’s over my new waterbox 135.4, but now that the aquatic life hybrids are out I am adding 4 t5’s to the mix and really don’t need the power of 3 xr15’s so I am selling 1. They are less than 2 months old and purchased from premium Aquatics. The RMS was only used for a couple weeks when I had my livestock in an IM Nuvo while this tank was being setup. $400 shipped and PayPal’d Separate $335 for XR15, $70 for RMS
  13. Well I got the bug again. I’ve been browsing Craigslist for the last year or so looking for that perfect little nano reef with good equipment and some nice coral when I found this fluval AIO 25gal. It came with a Radion xr15 pro gen 3, tunze nano ATO, Tunze skimmer 9004 and some cheapo flow pumps which I promptly replaced with a Vortech mp10. I picked the tank up about 9 months ago with the naive plan to keep it simple not get crazy with the SPS like my last tank. This lasted about a month or two and I slowly started adding some easier Montipora and a birds nest. Then I added a GHL SA doser 2.1 dosing pump and another flow pump and a couple Acropora. Then I came across a used JBJ 45 Rimless which I decided I had to have. I built a stand out of reclaimed cypress from an old New Orleans house that got demolished. The tank sits down in my basement office and helps to brighten a dark corner. My next project will be to remove the false wall and drill the back to accept an overflow so I can convert this from an AIO to a conventional reef with a sump and larger skimmer. Thanks for looking! This is how it looks now My newest addition. Not sure if it has a name I believe it’s a maricultured Acropora not sure what variety though. I’m hoping it keeps coloring up with those blue and purple highlights. My last reef was a 150gal AGE 60x30x20

    XR 15 Pro Gen 3

    I have a Gen 3 XR15 Pro with wide and Narrow lenses and RMS mount. I really like this light but I fell in love with the NanoBox lights a while back and have decided that's the route I want to go . This light is in great condition. It has one small corner piece on the undercover that chipped off. I taped it on for a temp fix but it can be glued. Either way you cant tell hardly at all unless you look for it. Asking $360 shipped or trade for a Nanobox Duo Plus M
  15. See blue arrows for screws to remove. This is a gen 1 or 2 pro with gen 3 upgrade, your radion may very. Do not do this tear down with out an antistatic mat, if you're clumsy, and IF you're still in warranty send it back to Ecotech. Also if you're fan is Hella loud or if your unit is running hot take the time to use a stiff bristle brush and clean out the dust/salt creep.

    Moonlight setup

    I am running the AB+ template. The template does not have moonlight for display at night. Can anyone suggest what color to use for moonlight? Royal blue?

    Nanobox or Ecotech Radion

    Hello NR! I'm considering buying a new LED Fixture for my 22g long tank. I already have a mini tide from my old tank, which I really like the way the light looks. Some details about my tank: 6 Months old, I have no fish, doing bi-weekly water changes (red sea pro salt), bi-weekly reef energy A&B, reef roids once a week. However here are some things I dislike about the fixture: I found little growth using the fixture after a year with my old tank. I've also done some par tests, and found the par to be pretty low with the settings blasted at high intensity. With only 12 inches deep - was getting only 80 par right under the fixture. Since my tank is primarily SPS, I was curious about the ecotech Radion 30 pro. I feel like the spread / par difference would be a vast improvement over the nanobox, however I feel like the nanobox light rendition looks somewhat better to me. The nanobox definitely has a discoball effect, but I've never had another LED fixture to compare it against - as I'm sure other fixtures might be worse. However, youtube videos of the Radion show the light as too much "white" and "bright look" Before anyone starts, I know there could be many reasons why my corals don't grow quickly, however - if we just factor in the LEDs for this conversation - which is the better fixture. So the question is this: Nanobox quad / duo, or Ecotech Radion xr30w Pro. What will be better for a smaller tank? Anyone had both? Which one did you like better for SPS? As well as the actual "look" of the tank. Current Set-up. https://youtu.be/X180cCvRcTA

    Jbj 30 assistance

    So I recently expanded my im10 to a jbj30 through and outstanding lfs deal. For now I moved my nanobox tide over to it and replaced the glass top with a screen. With lps and softies should I be concerned with enough lighting? I am looking at some playing montis in the future as well. If I do need to upgrade I am torn between a nanobox duo (love the nanobox) or a used x30r gen 3. Help!

  23. Up for sale is an XR15 Pro G3 that has NOT been used. It is brand new.

Shipping is $8 via USPS Priority mail. Asking $350... Will accept reasonable offers. Any questions just ask!
