Aquacrazed posted a topic in Nano Reef Journals4 month update after lighting upgrade to stock hood: May 13, 2018: SPS growing really nicely! Thicker & better coloration too! Compare these pictures to the older ones. Update: January 22, 2018: Upgrades: - Aquamai KPS Wavemaker - Current USA 12" Truelumen Pro LED bars (x2) and 10" LED strips (x2). This is in addition to the stock Fluval light. Total wattage 40.2 watts - Current USA Single, Dual and Dual Pro Ramp Timers - Smart ATO Micro Auto Top-off System - Aquatic Life 115 Protein Skimmer - inTank Chamber 2 Media Basket - Inkbird Aquarium Dual Stage Temperature Controller + NTC Sensor - Hydor Centrifugal Pump 300gph (it's not much stronger than stock pump, although smaller) - Green Killing Machine Mini 3W UV - Fluval Edge 25W heater (The room is fairly warm all year so don't really need much heating) Filter Media: Purigen, Matrix, inTank Poly Filter Floss --- March 4th, Day 1, tank goes live & cycling: April 5th, one month after: It's been a bit over a month since I setup this tank and it's my very first reef tank. I've been in the freshwater world for over a decade (currently have a 55g Discus tank) and decided to take the plunge and setup a reef. I'm running the stock lighting for now and it seems pretty decent. Even my SPS are starting to show new growth although the coloration isn't too good. Here are the additions/upgrades I've done so far: - Fluval P2 Protein Skimmer - Hydor Koralia Nano 425gph - Hydor Centrifugal Pump 300gph (it's not much stronger than stock pump, although smaller) - Green Killing Machine Mini 3W UV - Fluval Edge 25W heater (The room is fairly warm all year so don't really need much heating) Filter media: Purigen and Phosguard I got 17 different corals (mostly frags) right now including quite a few SPS. Cleanup crew consists of 5 snails, 3 hermit crabs, emerald crab and a blood red fire shrimp. And an acid rain bubble tip Anemone!

ECLS Reefer posted a topic in Nano Reef JournalsAfter starting my membership here with a strong showing, and for my own educational purposes and record, I guess I’ll start a journal. Seems like a good place to keep a list of ideas and tips to help me on this journey! Tank: Fluval Evo XII 13.5 gallon started 1/21/2019 Equipment: Fluval spec return pump 132gph Fluval sea mini protein skimmer 5-10gallon Fluval 50W heater In Tank Chamber 1 media basket Current Orbit Marine LED light w bracket arm Current Orbit Eflux Wave pump 660gph (along w their hubs) IM mesh screen Media: Fluval bio rings (bottom level of media basket) Fluval 100gm carbon (bottom level media basket) Fluval clearmax (middle level media basket) IM filter floss (top level media basket) Stock: 14lbs live rock ? Lbs of life sand Black oscellaris clown True percula clown Blue spotted goby watchman Red banded snapping shrimp Scarlet shrimp Trochus snails x4 Dwarf red hermit crabs x 10 Star polyp x 2 (one split into two sections thanks to hermits, so there’s three-ish) Palys x 2: both protopalythoa Hairy mushroom x3 (all on one big rock) Hammer x 1 Zoa x1 Now obviously I didn’t start with all of this at once. We started with three clowns in fact- two percula and the oscellaris, but the two bigger fish kept trying to kill the smaller so I took the small guy back to save him from certain death within a week. Following that, the black was named Jolly Roger and the percula Jack Sparrow. (What can I say- this tank is “supposed” to be owned by my soon to be 9 year old who LOVES POTC, but secretly, it’s mine 😁) We started with two trochus and five hermits, but I doubled that for more cleaning power after about two and a half weeks. Those guys don’t get names. We added the goby and his “pal” Jan 22, but they NEVER hang with each other and in fact I’m not sure they know the other exists anymore. The goby was named J Edgar Hoover because he is always watching us with disapproval from across the room and follows us around the tank with his permanent frown. The pistol shrimp was named Snappy because well..... 🤷🏻♀️ We added the scarlet shrimp a week ago, and he’s quite the personality. We call him the Red Baron. We started the tank with a zoa and the little star polyp that the herms split in two. We next added the protopalys. Added the hammer today, with some drama due to the LFS lady who evidently thinks I’m out to kill everything in my tank 🤦🏽♀️. That’s it for this tank in a nutshell.
Krish87 posted a topic in Equipment ForumFolks, For those of you who own the XP Aqua Duetto ATO, have you encountered an issue with the sensor? Currently, I'm experiencing a peculiar problem. I just wanted to check-in and see if anyone else has faced the same / similar situation. My ATO reservoir is filled to the right level and my power outlet is all good. When the water level in the sump falls below the sensor mark, I don't see any refill happening. The blue LED on the ATO unit keeps circulating, and then starts flashing and beeping after 5 min or so. But the pump doesn't activate and pull up water from the reservoir to the sump. Initially I thought my pump is busted, but I connected it with the Smart ATO in my other tank, it works perfect. Also, I noticed this - when I submerge the sensor into the water the blinking stops. But post evaporation it doesn't reconcile the process, and we are back to square one, no water being pumped up. I have tried all the troubleshooting steps per the manual, but no success! That being said, has anyone of you engaged @XP Aqua for warranty assistance? Any pointers either to help fix this issue or get support from XP Aqua is greatly appreciated 🙂 Thanking everyone in advance!
Hello all, I'm having issues with my SMART ato micro. Not so smart. The other day, it filled up my nuvo 10 all the way to the rim, and my salinity dropped to 1.021 from 1.026, luckily I was home, checked my water, and did a water change right away. The sensor seems to work fine, it pumps water until it reaches the level, however all of a sudden, the water level decrease in my return chamber and then the smart ato micro fills it up again, and the same thing over and over.. it basically pumps water like 5-7 times in a matter of 1 minute.. its not even normal.. im thinking that its a bad idea to have the ato sensor in my return chamber since water is always changing... Anyways, I'm really at a loss for words.. if anyone has any insight, please chime in. Instagram: CinnamonTorch_Crunch
Is the Smart ATO micro worth 175$ CAD? I'm running a nuvo 10 and i'm finding it very hard to fit another ato.. so i found this one, i read great reviews, but i wanted to know if anyone here can share their experience with me. this will be my first Ato, is it hard to use? Does it make a lot of noise? (My tank is right next to my bed) and is it worth getting for the long run? thanks again
