Bowen's IM Fusion 10

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!


 


I have posted in the introduce yourself but have decided to stick this in the nano builds!


 


I changed my plans for the tank! I have decided to purchase an Innovative Marine Fusion 10. With me still attending college and participating in athletics I figured this all in one would help cut down on maintenance and allow me to enjoy it more.


 


My current equipment includes:


-Innovative Marine Fusion 10


-Aqua Illumination Prime (Tank mount)


-Eheim Jager 50w heater


-Jebao wp10


-API Saltwater Test Kit


-Fluval Hydrometer (Will be upgrading to refractometer)


-inTank Media Basket


 


Tank Contents:


-10lb Bag Caribsea Aragalive Bahama Oolite


-8lbs Reef Saver from BRS


-Reef Crystals for salt


 


Supplements/Dosing:


-I could really use some guidance on this. I have been thinking Seachem Fusion 2 part. But am still researching


 


My Socking Plans:


Fish/Inverts


-CUC from Reef Cleaners 


-Goby of some sort (Any Ideas??)


-Cleaner Shrimp


 


Coral


-Unsure really want a mixed reef 


 


Thanks for the view!

Welcome to the fusion 10 club!

Your setup sounds nice, are you going to run a skimmer and an ato? My tank has a ton of evaporation daily. I don't dose anything but I do weekly water changes. Here is mine 2e5aef341f84d80ac62f968d1d886e5b.jpg069ad461999432d8c134d7b8f0a03b36.jpg

I don't know about skimmer, I will eventually get an ATO. I'm in college so I'm getting everything as I can

Get some pics posted and welcome to the forum!

 

Fusions are great little tanks. And to be honest you do not need a skimmer if you keep up on water changes and have a small bio load. I have been running a 20 with no skimmer and just do weekly water changes.

I have my light at 70 percent and just set it to 18k. I tweaked with it a lot in the beginning but found I like the 18k look and corals seem happiest around 70 to 75 pecent. I started to melt zoas and my lepto over 75 percent. I have it run from 8 am with a 1 hour ramp up to 7pm with a 1 hour ramp down.

The ato I use is from ato.com they are very simple to hook up and work well! I bought thier nano system it was like 45 bucks I think it included everything except the pump.
