Just started up my new JBJ 45g rimless. I'm pretty excited with the tank itself. The tank is on its 3rd week with water in it, looks like the cycle is nearly complete. I'm thinking a few more days and the PAR should be where I want them. I just wanted to start a new thread and introduce myself to the forum being new to r2r. I'll post pictures as I go along.

Thanks man, a sump/frag tank would never be a bad idea!

I have two paired clowns in now. Been in the system for about 12 hours now and seem to be doing alright. They don't want to swim around the tank or explore the rocks. Instead they stick to the walls. I'm hoping once they get more comfortable in the tank they will explore more.

First, Nice Build!! I still kick my self that i got the nuvo instead of the JBJ.
But, every clownfish I have ever bought behaved like this the first 6-24 hours.

Welcome to R2R, I have the JBJ 30 AIO and wish I'd got the 45 :rolleyes:, it's been running a little over a year other than the size I love it. What skimmer are you using?

Thanks everyone, so far I have no complaints about the tank. It's still a very new tank but it's doing great. I run a Tunze 9004 skimmer. Read some great reviews about it.

I have a 9004 skimmer, i really wasnt a fan with it in my AIO tank. I upgraded it to the Aquamaxx HOB-1, it works wonders plus you can have a bigger bioload.

I'll have to look into that skimmer I'm always up for suggestions!
