  3. 20L AIO Peninsula

    Howdy Folks Figured I would start a build thread even though this tank has already been built. I originally built the Stand for this tank back in 2012 the custom stand is designed to fit a standard 20 long that I picked up from petco $1 a gallon sale. Spent easily 100hrs working away to build the stand from scratch. I added a False wall to make it and all in one with 2 rear chambers. I got the kit from a member on Nano reef but can't remember who. This tank has been set up and taken down many times in the last three years and almost sold it twice once to Noob and KKnight. However I was very glad I kept it as last spring I came home from a vacation in the woods and found that my Nuvo38 had burst a seem and drown my living room. Luckily I had this tank handy. did a quick swap to save as many things as I could. Lost a lot of corals and 1 of my 2 fish did not live very long after this incident. Then not long aftert I moved and the tank went with but did not get much love. I have now decided to clean the algea out and start a new to get this back to a thriving reef once again. Equipment: 20 gallon long Tank Custom built stand 10-15 pounds of reef saver rock 20 pounds agrilive sand WP10 wave maker Korilla 425 gph IM first gen Skimmer No name 106 gph return pump Reefstar Nano alpha series LED Finnex 50 watt heater/controller DJ power strip Chemi-Pure Elite Purigen Fish: 1 Starry Blenny Coral Zoas roughly 10 varieties Gorilla Nipple Candy Apple Reds Pink Zippers GB Shangrila Not sure on the lineage of the rest if they even have it Green toad stool Kryptonite Trumpet (hanging on by a thread Green Sinulara Good ole fashioned GSP Plan to upgrade the pumps to 2 RW-4s and would like to maybe add 1-2 more fish. Also planning to get lots more corals of all types to fill it up as it is kinda bare right now.
  4. 20L AIO Peninsula

    I had forgoten that I did an update when I transfered everything over. Kinda nice to see just how much everything has grown in the last 2 1/2 months =)
  5. 20L AIO Peninsula

    Just wanted to give an update. I moved this from the 20l into a 29 same footprint just taller. I made my own overflow but never drilled it because I am not running a sump. I use the over flow compartment for my ato and heater. I have the intake for my sunsun canister filter in there as well so kind of a Hybrid AIO. I have been running my reef skimmer less with a canister filter sense last spring and for a nano tank with out SPS it has done great. I run the 9w UV sterilizer 24/7 not sure if it has any positive or negative effects but makes me feel better so there is that. My 2 fish are happy and healthy and really appreciate the extra swim room. It has been approximately 2 months sense I moved them to the new tank. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  6. Sand

    It might look a little out of place with the color most substrates used in reef tanks are black or white not sure how well it would look in a brightly lit and colorful reef with the tanish brown color. Physically though I don't think it would pose a problem and is very cheap which is a plus. Might look good in a display fuge though.
  7. 20L AIO Peninsula

    Tank Transfer complete. I will get a new build thread started down the road with all the nitty-gritty details of my setup. Changed from a custom 20l AIO to a custom 29 AIO set up wich gives my two little fishes a whole lot more swimming room. Which they needed. The corals all opened right up so must have done something right =) Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  8. Jebao Gyre

    Has any one seen and or used these yet? I have been a huge fan of the Jebao products making reefing affordable for the masses and saw these last night on amazon but had not heard any hype leading up to them or even any one using them. I was thinking about putting one on my 75 this fall when it is all ready to rock!

  10. Howdy folks Got a question the rules state no tank changes for the duration of the growout. I was hoping to ply for a stay of execution. If not no big deal. What I am looking at is currently I have the frag in a 20g long. With plans this fall / winter /possibly spring setting up a 75g for my reef. However in the mean time my 2 fish 1 clown and 1 starry blenny are getting a little cramped in the current configuration. I picked up a 29 tall at petco. Same footprint just taller moor swimming room. The stand and lighting and all equipment will be the same just a taller tank. And new sand. Let me know if this will violate the no tank swapping rule if not I am looking forward to the conclusion of this growout if so no big deal at least I got a killer zoa for a participation trophy =) Thanks Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk

  13. Algae scrubber

    The air stone creates a oxigen rich environment which promotes the rapid growth of nitrifying bacteria think trickle tower or wet dry filter which rapidly convert the ammonia and nitrite into nitrates and the algae is then consumes them. At least that is my theory I have no proof but it makes sense to me =) Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  14. Home renovation time,can I do it on my own?

    If it is LP siding now would be a good time to look at replacement. You should remove the siding around the window then when you have the new window in you can measure and cut to fit. The new Windows will not be the exact same size as the old ones also not a bad I Dea to have a few extra pieces on hand when you start. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  15. Home renovation time,can I do it on my own?

    Depends on how far it goes but yeah simple framing and some extra sheet rock work no big deal it is when it gets all the way down to the sill on the foundation that it becomes more of a big project and may want to get some out side help at that point.

  16. Home renovation time,can I do it on my own?

    It is really not that complicated the one thing to watch out for with the aluminum framed windows is you have a good chance of finding dry rot because of how much they sweat. It is pretty common and once you open that Pandora's box of dry rot you gotta ride the wave and repair it all. =) Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk

  20. 55G SeaClear Tank

    You will run into problems with it not wanting to self prime if you try this. Better off buying a pump there are quite a few options for a cheap return pump. For what you are after. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
