  1. I am needing to buy a new ATO for my nuvo 10 gallon. The Tunze nano looks nice but have seen quite a few people saying it’s a liability. Any recommendations on a product that I can buy or build that’s safe and won’t flood my apartment?
  2. Hello all, I am moving apartments between school years here in a couple weeks. I was hoping to see if anyone had any tips and tricks on making it as easy as possible on live stock. I have a 10 gallon Nuvo so it’s not a super big task. All of my coral can be easily removed and I only have one small fish. How should I keep the live rock and sand alive? Does it make sense only empty the tank 1/2 to a 1/3 and move with water in it? Any advice would be much appreciated!
  3. I am running a little 10 gallon Nuvo and the past couple months I have noticed an unidentified coral growing. I’ve never put a coral in the tank that looks like it. In the terrible photo it is the sort of green tan flat piece on the glass behind the star polyps and above the mushroom. Have any of you had random hard corals show up? Could it be some random encrusting monti?
  4. Sounds good! I will go ahead and put that on my tank. Thanks to all who replied.
  5. Hello all, I have been running my Nuvo 10 for about a month and a half now and need to get an auto top off. I figured I would use an old one I had but it doesn’t work properly and the float switch gets stuck on the on position. I need advice on what kind of ato to get for a nano tank like this. I’m skidish to use the tunze nano due to reviews and the fact that it uses only a float switch. In a large system the normal one works great as you have more room for the auto shut off to work but in five minutes my tank would be over flowing and salinity levels bottomed out. Anyone run a nano tank with an ATO they have trust in?
  6. Hey everyone, I was in the reef tank hobby back in high school a few years ago. I’m getting back into it with a nano tank as that’s what space will allow for, and would like some advice. Soon I will be starting my tank and would like to know how you all go about getting the tank cycled and ready for fish and corals. I’ve seen some great tanks that are setup all in one day and never have an issue like the cube from Reef Builders. I’ve also seen tanks where the cycle was done over a four month period. When I first started I took the longer approach but didn’t really look into any other way. Would you all recommend a long cycle or is it really just up to the owner? I of course would love to get it up and off the ground as soon as I can but I don’t want to set myself up for failure in the long run. I’ll be running a Nuvo 10 with an AI prime 16, ghost desktop skimmer (after cycling), and a filter basket holding filter padding, gfo, and carbon. It’ll have a 2” sand bed and a fairly light rock scape. Hoping to do mainly LPS and softies with maybe a low maintenance SPS or two.
  7. I'll have to figure out how to post pictures on here. I hope to have them up tonight.
  8. I'm ready as well but I know there is a winter storm moving in on the northern part of the state.
  9. My father would also like a Wyoming white
  10. Scratch that. I would like a Wyoming white and a semi Picasso sorry for that switch
