dpoltsdsu posted a topic in Nano Reef JournalsHello everybody, welcome to my new thread. (New Caribbean and Pacific Island theme starts on page 4 on 4/6/18). This aquarium will be the 4th reef that I have set up. For this reef, my goal is to have an organized, beautiful, and stream-lined reef with top of the line equipment. My plan for this reef is to have two separated rock structures. One structure will be primarily used to showcase a variety of Soft Corals, Large Polyp Stony Corals, Clams and Small Polyp Stony Coral from the Pacific Ocean while the other structure will be used to showcase livestock from the Caribbean. That structure will be be home to Gorgonians, Ricordea, and Rock Flower Anemone's. I will attempt to create the conditions that are best for each grouping of coral on each structure. Below is a run down of the equipment I will be running for the setup as well as the inhabitants that live in my reef! Equipment Tank- Cadlights Rimless Versa 42 Gallon with Starphire glass (30" x 18" x 18") Sump- Cadlights Rimless 16 gallon (20" x 13" x 13") Lighting- 2 Kessil A160E LED's with a Kessil Spectrum Controller Aquarium Controller- ReefKeeper Lite Protein Skimmer- Bubble Magus Curve 5 Water Circulation- 2 Vortech MP10's running on ReefCrest mode Refugium Light- Kessil H80 Tuna Flora set to growth mode Supplementation- 4 part Triton Method Core Elements Auto Top Off- Tunze Osmolator
Hey Nano-Reef! It's been a while, but I still lurk here from time to time. The 10 gallon nano that I started in 2015 is still running, but I've decided to finally start my 40 gallon with a tank that I bought in 2016. Having this giant, empty tank sitting in my living room was no bueno. It's currently cycling, and that's one of the reasons I decided to start this journal.....I have a question! I kickstarted my cycle using the dead table shrimp method about two weeks ago. I've watched my ammonia and nitrite levels rise and fall back to 0. My nitrates are now at around 20ppm. Soo...is my cycle over or nah? Two weeks seems kinda like a short time. I am starting my tank with dry rock and live sand (I went with live sand instead of dry sand since that was the only sand my LFS carried). Here's a picture of my very rustic aqua-scaping in case anyone is curious!
