Ryan's First SW Tank (10g NUVO)

Recommended Posts

I'm extremely excited for this weekend because it's when@AspiringLobophyllia drops off the goods for me to get started!

 

By Tuesday everything else will be ready to go! I've got the stand set up, RO/DI water made, and the neighbors are eagerly awaiting their new mates.

 

The stocking list is going to be a pair of small ocellaris clownfish and a yellow clown goby to keep them company.

 

Updates to follow, please feel free to comment as things come up!3becd664ea449f7953accab429f9ce32.jpg9a70bfcb4137c4f801ac0375c5be49aa.jpgc5637e1f4c9bd9831013fb99a78059e3.jpg21850eff885ea0572856db17c97b2afd.jpg42b5b4b5e4cc4f727a53cf534aa9f0ba.jpg

That looks very nice! Flow can get through and visually awesome!

Thank you! I really liked all the tanks that I looked up with arches so that was my intention.

Update 2... The scape didn't go as planned but ended up being better for height and coral placement. The tank is officially all set up with ammonia and bacteria in to get the cycle rolling. I'm really happy with how it turned out, even added a light shade to keep the light out of your eyes from the couch.

SG - 1.025
Temp - 77deg

2 ocel. clowns
1 yellow clown goby

5 blue legged hermits
3 trochus snails (if I can find them)

Open to suggestions for CUC and anything else.64e01b2240e5e799416c6cfa62c1c8b2.jpga903c4e1870a11fbd1da7f39776071af.jpg1fd3cd0f646aaa8813ae1ab773340186.jpg3cc9d1c408bc23376cd6d80fc9637e52.jpg

Update 3... Thanks for all the support guys! The tank is cycled and the life stock are in! Ended up getting a nice CUC from the lfs for $10 to go in there with them. They're already eating and swimming around though the goby is still skittish.

I've been playing with the light settings, what do you guys do on your tank for blue and white intensities?

CUC list...
5 hermits (1bl + 4rl)
2 margs
3 nas
1 turbo
3 bees
2 astrea
2 cer (maybe nas? They have nas looking tubes)
9 empty shells

Never had such cool fish before, the sw tank is definitely more fascinating than my fw tank.

Also been playing around with Coral types and placement, lmk what you think!6284b5da99e0f7c9697e9c3ed693b408.jpg307c306fe88fba27371dafcc042a810e.jpg898ae9d38eae7a8e04682af420ebdc87.jpg785a53d5516dd76d9a58c8977bc92260.jpg

Man where are you possibly going to be able to find a piece of sinularia to put in this tank lol?

My good buddy Jake! My lfs had very little Coral yesterday and I assume others are following suite. Is that why?

I was just ribbing @AspiringLobophyllia  Are stores being low on coral a thing with all the wackiness going on?  I haven't been in a store for weeks myself
