  1. General Reef Discussion
    Hey all!:wavey: It has been a while since I landed on the forum but Im excited to be back! I was building up a tank before my daughter Naomi Was born. Well That was back 2012 and as it goes life got busy and the tank fell by the wayside. The old thread is HERE I gave away most of my Reefing...
  2. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    So in my Nanocube, I have been running an all-coral system for about two months now. Before that, I had an Ich experience (After my Hurricane-caused tank crash) (With Wrasse and Clown) that discouraged me. The fish rapidly would develop Ich, almost die, and only recover in a Copper-Quarantine...
  3. Reefing Equipment
    Hey everyone, I have a Radion XR30w Pro in the hood of my nanocube, but am not happy with my lighting schedule/setup. For too much of the day the tank looks.... pale and greenish? I attached a picture of my schedule, suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Also, if you have a Radion Pro...
  4. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Weird day while cleaning out the tank. :D:D:D Besides the hundreds of ticked off Brittle Stars that were giving me the finger (Or tentacle), I found a weird creature (LARGE- 2+ inches) that may be a sea cucumber, a strange white anenome (I think), and noticed a few clumps of a weird algae in...
  5. General Reef Discussion
    After talking to Geoff, I finally decided to go bare-bottom (BB) in my 28 Gallon Nanocube. The purpose of this thread is to illustrate my process as well as document potential difficulties for other reefers who desire to lose their sand bed. This will also be good practice for my upcoming 650...
  6. Seahorses & Pipefish
    I was thinking about adding a seahorse to my soft coral nanocube, but am worried that there is WAY too much flow! I have two MJ 1200's, a MP10, and the sumps return.... No chance for a seahorse- right? The sump runs pretty slow, theoretically I could put one in the refugium, but then.... i...
  7. Crustaceans
    I cannot keep ANY shrimp alive for over three days! All my parameters (Nitrate, ammonia, nitrite, phosphate, calcium, salinity, temperature) are great and all my corals are fine! :doh: I have tried (two months apart) a coral banded shrimp, Fire Shrimp, and two peppermint shrimp, only to have...
  8. SPS Coral Forum
    Any idea to why my Montipora is brown in the center? It was like that a month ago when I bought it (Cheap!), but I thought it would be better by now. What is browning caused by? I don't believe I have any pests, so could it be excessive/inadequate lighting? It is extended, but I am still...

  11. Reefing Equipment
    Hello again, My setup is the 28G JBJ NanoCube with PRO LED lighting. I find that the day time lighting is extremely strong, and I am now reading about all of the bleaching stories. Right now I have a gorgeous hammer, toadstool and some polyps that I would love to not wash out. So far I have...
  12. Reefing Equipment
    I have the 12 gallon jbj nanocube dx and I'm really wanting to switch to LEE's. I want to retrofit the existing hood however. But I also want it to be a smooth transition without a ton of electrical labor. I really just want to gut the pc's and mount a new kit. I'm new to reef tanks and I live...

  14. Tank Specs
    Hey All! New to this forum so if you catch me doing something wrong, please let me know.

Just converted a couple days ago from a Freshwater...

  17. General Reef Discussion
    Hello everyone. I've been running the stock power compact lighting on my 24 gallon nanocube. I was about to buy bulbs to replace the fading ones in there now, but I started considering upgrading to leds instead. Any advice on what fixtures would be good? I saw some ~150 watt fixtures on amazon...
  18. Nano Reefs
    Hi all. Trying to decide between the jbj 28 gallon nanocube intermediate or advanced. Is the $200 increase in price worth it for the stronger led system? Or am I better off with the intermediate and upgrading later; noting if I upgrade I want the canopy to still look stock/oem? Or, am I...
