Sorry for the super 'average' question. I wasn't sure whether to ask it in this Discussion, or the AIO one, but since I'm a novice when it comes to marines I'll put it here. I simply want the best for what I'm looking to set-up, I've already asked & done a lot of research but I thought where better to ask than here. Going away to university, want to downsize my hobby but also bring a piece of my job along with me. I'm very aware of the maintainence & have plans for stuff like weekly water changes etc. My budget is flexible, but obviously I'd rather not blow it all. The one I've had my eye on was the Aqua One Nano Reef 35, & I was thinking to just probably upgrade the skimmer & maybe the lighting too. It's an AIO, since I don't want to set-up a sump in my dorm, and comes with a heater etc. It's retailing for around $230 / £170, but for the upgrades it'd cost me extra, so let's assume it's around $300. I've also been scouring ebay etc for deals but it's hard to find tanks which are a good deal & near-by, since most people aren't willing to ship them with it being glass and all. Are there any other good & reliable options / recommendations? -->If these options require some small upgrades e.g. skimmer / lighting, what upgrades would you recommend?<-- Others I've seen: Peninsula Box Mini 15 (Expensive, £479 with the light, which I assume is a good light) Fluval Sea Evo Innovative Marine 10 Pro (out of stock on official site) Thanks! Edit; A tank that sits nicely on a desk / square cabinet would be preferrable. Ideally too some nice coral recommendations which aren't too sensitive. The end goal is a nice anenome / xenia showcase.
Hey everyone! I currently have a 2.5 gallon pico reef running, and just recently purchased a Lifegard Aquatics 8.3 gallon AIO aquarium (pictured here on the far left). Based on the size of the back compartment, I'd say the main portion of the aquarium is about 6-7 gallons. Before I add anything, I will be purchasing a glass cover and an LED light. With this in mind, I was wondering what would be some good invertebrates to showcase in this aquarium. I would be willing to do a species only setup, a biotope, or anything else that would be more interesting/unusual than the usual clownfish and cleaner shrimp. I have experience growing macroalgae, soft corals, and LPS, so I would most likely try to incorporate those into the setup as well. Any ideas would be great!
Outside of ADA's $180 surface skimmer, there are a lot of options out there. Was wondering if people had experience. This is for a low flow (sump-less) tank that tends to get a film on the surface (which then supports dust). Examples are... Amazon Link HOB add-on Another filter add-on (current choice) etc. Suggestions? Quality DIY build link?
