12 gallon

  1. Nano Reefs
    So I finally decided last January that fresh water just wasn't enough fun. In Feb 2014 I purchased a used JBJ Nano 12, put some new 50/50 bulbs in it, read every imaginable forum, and started my first reef tank. I figured since I've been leeching information from these forums for months now, it...

    Hey Guys! My name is Chris, I'm new to TRT and getting into this fine hobby known as Reefing. I've done some extensive research here on TRT and else where. With that, I've researched in detail the risks associated with a new reefer and nano tanks. I'm looking for all guidance and appreciate...

    Hi Everyone, Can anyone tell me what the specifications are of the new Fluval Edge 12 gallon tank (the one that comes new with 42 LED). I am considering a DIY lighting modification but i do not know the output of the stock lighting? I want to be able to compare the potential lighting...
  5. Tank Specs
    Hello ALL! It's been about 5 years since i've been in this hobby. In 2004 I had 55 gallon reef which was taken down in 2006. Recently, (2 weeks ago) I purchased a used 12 gallon jbj nano from a co-worker, so i'm back in the hobby. The best thing about getting back into this hobby is I now have...

    Hi everyone, I just bought a 12 gallon JBJ nano cube I found in a thrift store for $30. It has the lid with light and pump. I plan to set up a FOWLR to start, and maybe get into coral if I do well. I need filter media, as it came with none. What are suggestions for media? Do I need to add...
  7. Seahorses & Pipefish
    So I'm thinking of setting up a 12g long tank for a pair of bluestripe pipefish and I'm wondering if this parts list is good: Mr. Aqua Frameless 12 gallon Long Glass Aquarium Tank...
  8. TRT Member Blog's
    Ok so today is day seven for me and my nano reef tank. I decided that I would start a blog to help keep track of all that is going on during this journey. I come home each day to more algae than the day before. I am hoping that this is all a good sign that my cycle is going well. I am going...

    Hi, I have a 12 gallon Marineland Eclipse. I'm looking for a Coralife 13w 50/50 compact fluorescent with a pl type base. Seems difficult to find. Drs.Fosters&Smith carry it but only the screw on type. I've tried about 10 other online retailers and no go including Thatfishplace.com. I...

    The Eclipse system 12 gallon has built in lighting using a 13w CF 50/50 bulb @ 5500K. Does anyone know if this is adequate enough to support coral? If so, what type of coral? Thanks in advance.
  12. General Reef Discussion
    I have an Eclipse system 12 gallon with LR, LS, 2 fish, snails, and crabs. I've only had it for roughly 2 months but it's sprouted what may be some cup coral and feather dusters. Do you think an inexpensive powerhead is overkill for a tank this size? If not, can anyone recommend a brand/model...

  14. Nano Reefs
    I have a 12 gallon nanocube I set up recently. I have removed the lid and added a 70w Sunpod. The open top and light created some evaporation so I am thinking about using a Kent Aquadose 2.5 gallon to replace lost water. I will be doing water changes of 10 to 20% once per week. I have been...

    Came across an excellent deal on this little 12 gallon eclipse setup. $50 for the tank, stand, fish, and rock. There is a sixline wrasse hiding int here somewhere. Decided to do me a little Nano for the bedroom. Here are some pics after the setup. You can tell in some pics that I forgot to...
