  1. Just the last two days I’ve come hone to see an odd buildup of salt creep along the outside bottom edge of the tank (Nuvo 10). I’ve had the issue before where the clips caused water to rub down the outside and make a small buildup of salt creep before, but this seems different - I don’t see a streak where the water is running doesn’t the glass. It appears as if it’s just building up from the very bottom of the tank. Could this be the early signs of a leak?? The buildup in the photos was over only 24 hrs or so. Thanks for any any thoughts or suggestions!!

    Hannahrain's 1st Nano Reef

    Welcome to my Fluval Evo 13.5 Nano Reef Journal I've been researching reef tanks and learning all I can the past 3 months or so, watching lots of BRS TV on youtube and joining several saltwater groups on FB and piles of internet reading. Anyway I decided to go with the Fluval Evo 13.5 because of it's peninsula shape and the fact that it would fit well and look great on our pass-thru bar between our kitchen and living room, allowing it to be seen from both rooms. I hope to keep this tank as simple as possible w/very little added equipment. The tank was started up this past Friday 1/12/2018 and is cycling, dosing with Brightwell Aquatics Microbacter 7 daily. I am in love with looking at it, can't wait to put something in but am planning to take it slow and add things slowly as most experienced reefers recommend. Currently consists of: Caribsea Ocean Direct Sand Dry Rock unsure how many pounds as I didn't add all 15lbs (from World Wide Corals, we visited in person, loved that place!) Wet live rock rubble... 4-5 pieces Cobalt Neotherm Heater 100w this size was too large to fit in the return chamber returning Future upgrade plans currently include: Tunze Osmolator Nano 3152 ATO Jebao PP-4 wavemaker with controller I've seen where a few others used this one their Evo's but I'm open to other suggestions Intank Chamber 1 Media Basket HOLY COW at the price of that thing! Using Chamber 2 as a refugium looking into cheap refugium LED lights, any ideas? As of now, I have no plans to upgrade the light as I need the canopy to help prevent evaporation and to protect the tank from contaminants as it's nearly in the kitchen. Undecided if I need to upgrade the return pump From what I've learned so far, it's not necessary to have a skimmer on a nano, so I'm hoping to go without. The pics were taken right after it was filled, it has since cleared. I ended up adding a little more sand after pics were taken. The rocks are stabilized with Holdfast Epoxy. I'm waiting to receive my magnet scraper today, can't wait to clean up the glass. I settled for the API Master Saltwater Test Kit for now, I figured it was better than nothing. Right now my fish/CUC stocking plans include: 1-2 Ocellaris Clowns 1 Skunk Cleaner Shrimp 2-3 Turban snails 2-3 Nassarius Snails Copepods Doing this on a budget (horses are my main hobby and they aren't cheap either), so not adding too fast probably won't be too difficult, lol. Any thoughts/comments are appreciated. Thanks for looking! Kitchen View: Living Room View:
