  • Tr1ggers IM 25g Nuvo Lagoon!

    Hey crew! I moved back to NWI back in March from California and that's about as far as I want to dive into that. I took down and parted out my 100g CADLights tank and sold off everything. So now I am building from scratch.

    I still have a lot of my contacts on the west coast so I can hopefully bring some awesome cherry pieces to the area. Its good to be back and excited to get back into the hobby! I decided on the new Innovative Marine 25g Lagoon tank. It has a great footprint of 24x20x12 and will be easily lit by a kessil a360we. Just purchased the tank tonight from Premium Aquatics and should be here Tuesday. I will be building a simple DIY stand and will be adding more equipment in the future!

                Why did you fill it with water there? That's not where you are keeping it are you?

                  No, just leak testing with tap water. I would rather see it leak there on the concrete floor than at home

                          Alright the cycle is live! Added in 20lbs of Tropic of Eden reef flakes and 22lbs of Walt Smith 2.1 dry rock. Also added was a new MP10 QD.

                          Here are some murky and preliminary photos. Aquascaping not complete.

                            Alright tank update, it has finished cycling and I have added some fish. A pair of clowns from Pet Haven.

                            I also ordered my light, went with a NanoBox Duo Plus M from Dave @ Nano Box Reefs. Black body with a White lid and a very small profile. Just 12" X 3" X .75". Wireless control with 5 channels including moonlights. Highly debated kessils, radions or AI's. I have had them all and nothing really blew my mind so I decided to go another direction. Light will be here end of next week.

                            Happy Reefing!

                              Those clowns are sweet. I've been wanting to change up and get some neat different clowns but I can't let these two go. I've had them since I started reefing.
