THANK YOU!! so many nice wordsReally enjoying your build thread. I have an IM 30l AIO, which we set up in April, 2018. We really like it for our kitchen viewing tank. I’ve grown to love the shallow height for many reasons especially easy cleaning and direct feeding of my cleaner shrimp and others. You mentioned the top frame corrosion risk, mine is plastic so no rust and has held up very well. I removed the original netting and replaced with a thinner less light blocking material. I don’t use a skimmer, just water changes and normal cleaning maintenance. My challenge is keeping nutrients up to desirable levels. Your rock work looks beautiful I really like the depth and openness of your design.
I could go on, but suffice it to say great job, and good luck with your system.
i spent the day hmm and humm about a QT tank. I found a Topfin 10g setup at petsmart for $80. I’d rather spend $80 on a QT then have anything happen to my clowns. Plan to pick it up tomorrow and put the filter media in my sump to get it cycling.
