    IM Nano 10 - back in the hobby

    So after a 3 years without a tank, I decided to jump back in with a IM 10g. I had a 37g LPS tank for 6 years and a 180g mixed reef for 5 years - went all out, fairly successful but had issues come up that made the hobby unsustainable at the time. Looking to try and keep this one uncomplicated. ! It is amazing to me the advancements in the hobby just in the last couple years. Any helpful comments or suggestions greatly appreciated. Getting live rock and water tonight and will just cycle for a while before adding anything.
  2. Hello, So im looking into getting a protein slimmer for the new reef tank I’m wanting to set up. The tank is 20 gallons and will one day have a clown fish anenome and hopefully a tuxedo urchin. I’m hoping to get suggestions on good brands at an affordable price, and models that are good for a 20 gallon tank.

    Fluval 13.5 build

    Hey guys how’s it going! I just recently bought a fluval 13.5 nano tank and decided I should start a forum on it to track the progress. My tank is already cycled I’ve had it going for about 5 weeks now. Everything in the tank is stock still no upgrades I wanted to ask people what are some of the best upgrades to start with. I am running the fluval ps2 mini skimmer and I’ve had pretty good results. I did use the biochem QuickStart and that is why my tank has gone through it’s cycleing process in a short time. I also have live reef rock and arganite. I did wait some time before adding new inhabitants to avoid spikes in my tank parameters. Inhabitants: 2 green/blue reef chromis 1 lawnmower Blenny 3 snails (forgot what type they are) 2 nassarius snails 1 designer clownfish (bought him today) 1 cleaner shrimp Corals: 1 Xenia frag 1 eagle eye zoanthid frag

    Any high flow corals

    I have a biocube 14 with upgraded LEDs and a wave maker which does 144 gph flow. I have 4 coral colonies which are thriving The corals are Red Cap Monti (doubled its size in 4) Recently got an uknown stylophora which was in a low flow tank in Petco and got it for FREE (started growth on a new branch) Duncan coral (is growing 3 more heads) a yellow birds nest coral (also doubled its size) my cuc is 4 hermit crabs and an astrea snail. And centerpiece is a domino damsel I'm looking for 1 more easy to keep coral as I don't want to push the bioload. Any Ideas

    Biocube 16

    Hi all! Let me begin by saying that I am relatively new to this hobby, but I have found this forum incredibly informative over the 100’s of hours I have spent researching! I started my journey several months ago with a nano reef tank (quite an undertaking for a beginner, I know). Thus far, I have had a fair amount of success, but I am concerned for the long-term well-being of my tank; thus, I am reaching out to you, fellow and experienced reefers, for some advice. I currently have a STOCK Biocube 16-gallon tank. I cycled completely before adding any CUC, fish, or corals. Over the past few months, I have slowly added a variety of species and everything has gone surprisingly well (I have only lost one Trochus Snail and a single Blue Legged Hermit). I have been running just the basic Biocube filter (replaced every few weeks) and my clean-up crew (1 Tuxedo Urchin, 2 Turbo Snails, 1 Margarita Snail, 1 Conch Snail, 4-5 hermits, 1 Emerald Crab, and 2-3 hitchhiker brittle starfish) to support a pair of clowns. . have also been doing 10-15% water changes every week. I have also noticed some unexpected copepods, worms, etc. that have made their appearance over the past few months. I have slowly added several species of “corals” including a hairy mushroom, RBTA, Pulsing Xenia, Plating Montipora, Zoas, and Acans. All of my parameters have been stable and within normal limits over the past few months (post-cycling). My question is: what preventative measures should I be taking at this point? I am in this for the long-haul and would like a fairly self-sustaining reef tank a few years down the road. Should I be dosing nutrients? Should I have some sort of media filter in my empty second chamber? Do I need to upgrade my lighting? What is my next step in working towards my long-term goal? I know this is a broad and novice question, but I appreciate all insights! Thank you!!!

    PocaReef 10G aio Build!

    Alright! after careful planning and research it now time to build my own 10 gallons AIO. This tank will be my testing ground to grow corals as I have been so hesitant to have corals previously within the 5 tanks that I have own which are now have been taken down. this tank will mainly house mostly Soft Corals and LPS and a few easy SPS. Custom Tank 16 x 12 x 12 Here is the rockscape that I made for the tank. I bought the rocks from The Aqua Culture, the most decent Reefing Store here in the Philippines!. I used Aquaforest StoneFix to bond the rocks together. It's like a cement though it dries quickly so you have to work on it fast, one more good thing about this product is that it doesn't contain harmful chemicals and doesn't leech out which means no need to cure!. One of the downsides I have seen on AIO tanks is that you can't see the sides of the back sump, So I asked the tank maker to make cut outs of the black sticker that will wrap the back sump so that the medias will be visible and to make it more easier to clean. One thing I have learn from my previous tanks is that 1. Plan everything ahead even future upgrades and 2. Make everything easier for you as Mike Paletta said "the easier it is for you to do, the more you will do it". Rio 600 for the return pump. I prefer a slightly powerful pump so that I won't be needing a wave maker which is an eyesore for a small thank like this. More to come! any recommendation for stocking list?

    Moving white specs/bugs??

    I noticed these little bugs I guess u can say or organisms on my glass.. I’ve never seen them before but they’re all over my glass. On of my fishes died the day before so idk if these are good or not
  9. So long story short I adopted a crashing nano cube and all was lost. Time for a fresh start. I kept the stock hood and lights but got new bulbs, one of the fans was out so I upgraded both fans with overcool 60mm I also turned them to pull air in rather than to push it out (airflow observation made that a no brainer). I customised the return system a bit, I added a sicce multi 1300 to replace stock pump I then drilled a return line for the stock pump to come out of chamber 2 and flow is nice and slow to hit the back corners, it sits In chamber one so water goes through the whole aio sump. I went with reef cleaners dry rock and ended up with about 30lb of beautiful light rocks. I went with 30lb of aragonite oolite and a 3lb fully cured live rock from lfs. I tossed it in last night and immediately had a few tufts of red algea/coraline? This morning the tufts dissipated a bit and gave way to a little dark pebble making a ring around it (see photo) anyways that is all the excitement I have had so far. I hope that as I post my experiences and photos other reefers could chime in and help me understand what is happening, and give recommendations, advice, and knowledge. Thanks for letting be be a part of the community! The day I took possession
  10. My 20 gallon nano reef!!! Check it out!!!!! Please and thank you! I will be doing updates on this tank as well as product reviews, showing some coral I pick up along the way of building this tank fully, and also answering questions if I could! so stay tuned for more...

    My 40 gallon bare bottom reef tank

    Just sharing my 40 gallon reef tank.
  13. Happy 4th of July everyone! Here is a little color explosion for you all, a trailer of a short documentary, "A Small Ocean World". My goal is to be able to take you along on a little exploration in our nano reef aquarium. To truly appreciate how amazing all of the ocean life form existed in our tank, I will be focusing on their physical character and close up details that our eyes can't normally see. I hope by making this short film, we can all appreciate what our ocean has brought us by protecting it and bringing it even closer to our heart with your reef aquarium. This is still in early stage of work in progress but I welcome any suggestion and specific request in the comment below. I'm also looking for a volunteer voice narrator and script writer, if anyone is interested in working together to make it an even more incredible film feel free to PM me. https://oceanboxdesigns.com
