Back into the adiction

Recommended Posts

I've had reef tanks on and off for 15 or so years.


I'm back in small nano size this time.  


We are currently working on a Biocube 14 setup but it's not wet yet.



Nanobox reto plus M light kit

MJ900 return pump

Locline return

Fuval 50w heater

Jeabo PP-4 for flow

20lbs of Carib-sea live sand

10 lbs dry rocks

Chemi-pure media


Currently working on the stand but we plan to get wet soon.


We are in Eugene and would be happy to hear from the locals.

Welcome to the Club! I believe there are some members from your area not sure on names as I'm still fairly new. Also I think "The fish Store" one of our sponsors is in Eugene!

First tank back in 2000 was a 55 gal we had in Tacoma.. I ran that for 4 years until it was wiped out by an untested  light timer tripping a GFI outlitet killing power to the tank for a whole week while we were out of town. 

It was brought back online after we moved to Denver and run for 2 years..  I had a 110 90% built out and we found out we had a baby on the way so we parted out everything and sold out.


About little later we picked up a 65gal tank and ran that until 2008 when we moved back to WA.

That was this one






2008 back in WA set got a 55 and ran that for a year until we moved to a house with 50 year old hardwood floors. We were renting and I didn't want to do salt in there.

That was this tank..




The tub on  cans was stocked with macro algae and live rock as a refugum..



Now some may be asking.. Why the big break from 2008 to today? In a word.. A freaking Koi..


I picked up a 65 intending to do salt but the kids talked me into letting them keep some 5 goldfish in it while I gathered equipment.    

One of those Goldfish turned out to be a Koi.. He grew and grew and grew.. After a few years all but the Koi and 1 goldie were still around.. 

When the Koi hit 18" we moved him and friend to a 90.. Then when we moved to Eugene he got an upgrade to a 350 gal stock tank in the back yard.



That brings me to today and my little Biocube project.

The Biocube online!   I'm surprised it cleared up so well overnight.

Last night after filling it was a wall of white. 




That little PP-4 is defining the sand scape all on it's own. I may have to dial it back more.

The Nanobox retro kit works great.
