I ruined my Xmas present the other day. My Girlfriend broke down and admitted she bought me the 20G tank I’ve been eyeing for awhile. Although it wIll be a little bit before I get it going I’d like to start this build thread now
First hurdle: Tank came with a few scratches so I’m in the works of contacting BRS to see what I can do.
Tank: 20G Nuvo Fusion
Light: AI 16HD x2
Filtration: IM media basket on right side with filter floss and carbon and home made media basket with filter floss and live rock rubble on left side, stock return pump (will upgrade sometime)
Heater: Eheim jager 75W
ATO: Tunze 3155 ato with a 5 gal bucket
Powerhead: Jebao sow 4 x2
Now off to the fun part a few pictures!!
sorry about the light, opened tank at her parents before taking it home
Messing around with the light!
This is where the tank will end up sitting on top of a 35” tall homemade stand
Currently full tank shot
Haven’t really been much of a change to the tank. Nutrients have bottomed out again so I am feeding reef roids every day to my corals. Also I should be getting a pair of clowns this week so that will also help with nutrients hopefully.
Love the trachy when it’s feeding!
I really liked my old black ice clowns but I might be able to get orange storms so we’ll see on Thursday/Friday I’ll find out.Looking good Nick, what type of clown are you thinking?
Thanks man! All is looking good after yesterday’s cleanup cyano hasn’t come back yet (fingers crossed) and it was popping up within a day of water changes before so that is a good sign. Haven’t been home today but from what I can see from the camera on the tank it still looks good!Hoping that you've rid it from dino's my friend. I found out the source of my issue was TDS in my water - even after filtration. I just picked up a new BRS RODI unit which should help with the issue. I typically run between 5-10ppm for nitrates and will start dosing for phosphates as I introduce a couple new frags this week!
I'll do an update on my thread in the next few days. Happy Thanksgiving man!
