  1. WTB Nano skimmer

    My Hydor slim skim went bye bye. Needed a skimmer for 30 gallon all in one. JBJ rimmless, but probably many models will work. You name the fair price. Even better, used Hydor that still works. Can also use a hang-on back for other 30 gallon tank.
  2. Chiller vs AC

    I have a 28 gallon nano tank and am struggling to keep it at a consistent temperature inside my house or in the aquarium. What is more economical: buying a chiller for the aquarium, or just keep using the current window air conditioning unit and running up the electricity bill even when I'm gone? Are ice probes an effective way to go? What would I expect to spend on new or used equipment like a chiller?
  3. Sasquatch Cube

    Time to be reborn. Starting a new tank at a new apartment. This time it's going to be clean and smart.
  4. Corals for Sale

    Helping a friend Sell some corals locally. These look healthy and have thrived in his IM tank for a couple of years and he's a great guy to deal with. Here is his Ad: https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/for/6073691508.html If you would like to contact Tom directly, he can be reached at tomallanboyd@gmail.com
  5. oh wow another 29 Biocube thread.

    Biocube 29's are easily one of the most common tanks in this hobby, especially for nano's, so its no surprise that thats my first salty tank. i have about 30 pounds of live rock in the tank, in an arrangement that I think should do well. my current plan is to have this be a euphyllia dominated tank, with Frogspawn, Torches and maybe a Hammer. Im also considering a dedicated Zoa rock and maybe a few other things. all LPS or Softies though. my current stocking is 8 hermits, 2 turbos, one Occelaris clown, one Banggai Cardinal, one Royal Damsel, and one Lawnmower blenny. .its been setup for about two months, and im just about to get started with a few corals. starting with hopefully a frogspawn or two this weekend.while this is my first saltwater tank, it is my 4th overall tank, I have 3 others. a 29 gallon high-tech planted tropical community tank, a 20 gal low-tech planted freshwater semi-aggressive tank, and a 20 gallon tank with my first, and favorite, fish, a big ol' goldie named Jasper. so while this is my first dive into saltwater,(other than cliffjumping in cabo a few years back), I think that im on the right track, however any and all suggestions and tips are GREATLY appreciated, cause I think I know a good bit, but I probably dont. pics to come, thanks for reading!
  6. Aquatop RC24G

    Got the new tank set up today. That is work... Tomorrow is going to be a rough day at real work, but I really wanted to get things filled. First pics. Just got into the house...meant to take the cost sheet off of it...gave the BF sticker shock LOL. Lots of hiding places in this rock. I wish it was a bit taller, but I guess I will just get some top tank swimmers, or add some more at some point.
  7. It's been a few years since I last posted. I ended up selling my 72g system back in either late 2011 or early 2012. I had been travelling with my job and my daughter just didn't want to manage maintenance in my absence. It was a tough decision, but the right one for me at the time. I was so afraid the tank would just crash in my absence and that would have devastated me Well its 2017, no more travel, I am about to set up a 24g Aquatop RC24G. Heading out to pick it up at Barrier Reef, here in Renton. I actually have a JBJ 28g Nano Cube arriving from and online retailer but when I saw this nice rimless setup at the store yesterday, came home and did some research and decided I will send the JBJ back when it arrives. Glad to be back. Looking forward to devouring the expertise that I have always found with this group. Trying to remember...is there a membership fee? Mine is overdue I bet!! (edit - found the link. Done)
  8. Sean.G's Reefer Nano

    Sean.G's Reefer Nano I spent 20 mins typing a tank thread then my web browser crashed and I lost it, so here is my new one. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anyway this tank is a Red Sea Reefer Nano. Its a pretty good tank that is pre-drilled with a sump. The display is 21 gallon 18 inches cubed, with something like an 8 gallon sump for 29 gallon total volume. I go to university at OSU and don't have tones of money to throw at it but its doing pretty good about a year in. Besides the tank nothing else is too fancy. Lighting is the Marine Orbit Pro LED, thinking about adding a 2 bulb T5 to supplement it and get some different colors. An Aquamaxx Skimmer, 175 GPD RODI, Cheap Powerhead return pump all that jazz. Things I would like to add in the future, the T5's or maybe another or different LED setup. Maybe a Calcium Reactor if I start keeping more SPS, I already have a CO2 tank from past planted freshwater tanks. I have also thought about turning a canister filter into a GFO chamber. Possibly adding dosing equipment again if I get into a heavier stock of corals. Also an Auto Top off because adding two mason jars of water a day get annoying. Anyway here is what I have in my tank and then some Pictures at the end! CUC 5 Nassarius Snails 4 Astraea Snails 2 Nerite Snails 1 Tiger Conch 1 Emerald Crab 1 Bee Snail Fish & Stuff 1 Blood Orange Misbarr Clown 1 Occelarris Clown 1 Madarin Dragonet 1 Cleaner Shrimp Coral & Stuff Birdsnest Orange Ricordia Purple Mushroom Hairy Blue Mushroom Green Mushroom Duncan pompom xenia tricolor Acan Green Toadstool Leather A bunch of "plain" Zoas Orange Rock Flower Nem Maximini Nem Pictures coming soon I want to post this so the text is all saved!
  9. Hi everyone, I am trying to get back to this. I used to have a 90g display and 55 sump/fuge that I had just gotten the way I liked and was building livestock when I moved to the Seattle area (from Corvallis) and couldn't take it. In a condo I lived in at first, I converted a standard 29g aqeon tank into a peninsula by adding some black acrylic to one end. I'll post pictures soon, but I've got about 4-5" on one side that's behind the acrylic. It's split roughly in half with an over/under so there's a 3-4" overflow from the main tank to a 'fuge', then over/under to the return section. return is powered with a hydor pico 70 (20" head max). flow: I've got two hydor koralia 240s running now and am trying to clean up a koralia 700. assuming about 25g of display, that's 47x water flow, but I'm thinking I'll put the 240s on a simple wavemaker, so it'll be more like 37x flow (still not counting the 70gph return's flow). lighting: dual 20w LED, one 10000K, the other actinic blue, can be separately timed. Have a moonlight kit I need to assemble was thinking of adding a submersible light for PAR in the 'fuge' to grow chaeto or micro on a grid for nutrient export, have not purchased yet substrate: Tank was initially set up about 2 years ago, was stabilizing for about 4 months, then I moved to my house and it's been having zero maintenance since then (luckily no livestock except substrate). Not even topoff or heater. no flow, zero maintenance. about 40lbs of rock, mostly dry, about 10lbs was live two years ago... about 2" of sand. was from one of those questionable 'live sand' bags (again, 2 years ago) Yes, I have a BRS 5-stage RODI. I've just got the tanked topped up and am starting a series of 5g water changes, hoping to replace most of the water within a month (5g at a time). I'm ignoring the tank's salinity while doing these, just making sure the new water is dead on. Choices to make: * Do I put a ~5000K submersible light bar in the 'fuge' and grow chaeto or have grid for microalgae? or do I put a tiny skimmer in there? Maybe both if I put the skimmer above the return pump? * Have a topoff I haven't set up yet, should I add nutrients to this? I have a 10g glass laying around I'll probably use to store the source and a diaphragm pump I'll use to move the water * Should I bother with a backpack skimmer? I have an old one (have to check brand) that I once had on a 55g I could probably use livestock: None yet, but I have a vision! I would love to make this an SPS tank with VERY minimal motile livestock. at most, I'm thinking a shrimp or two and MAYBE a small fish (goby?). I'm imagining a tank of montis and acros and something encrusting. I would consider a LPS or something too, especially lower in the tank So once I get the water changes through, I think I'll get 10lbs ish of LR rubble to stick in the return area, just to make sure there's still something live in there. Probably chuck in some tiny shred of something from the seafood aisle and let that ride for a while. Then I'll get to livestock. Thoughts? I know there's a bunch of nano people here, so please give your suggestions for livestock and for my 'choices' that are pending.

  12. The tiniest nano

    So I found this tiny bottle, and figured, that needs some coral.. So here it is.. The start to a tiny nano.. Bookshelf nano Maybe just GSP, Xenia, and majanos in there for now.. No feeding, just some sunlight and WC once a month
  13. Nuvo 8g Design Flaw?

    So I have a new Nuvo 8g and just got a new lid, but I think its lid cuts down on gas exchange in the water. It has greatly cut down on the evaporation I used to experience.. but now Im worried I dont have enough air exchange to keep fish alive.. I 'had' a blenny in there who the night after I noticed wasn't moving to much and was gasping for air in the tank.. I added a second powerhead aimed at the surface and let it bubble around but it was too late, by morning he was gone Has anyone else used the lid on their tank? or does it limit the gas exchange to much for SW tanks? Maybe a lower water level in the chamber to allow water to crash in the back and churn up more bubbles? Or add more LR in the chamber in the back for more bacteria to grow? Advise please!
  14. Sasquatch's Zoa Patch Nano

    Starting up a 8g Nuvo full of zoas.. Here are its humble beginnings.. Not the final placement but it's a start for now
