Queens Stoops718 Nuvo 10

So I'm jumping back into the hobby after a few years, sorta. My first nano was a Fluval Edge 12g. Let me just say it was a learning experience and PITA to maintain. A couple of years after breaking that one down I got a JBJ Cubey 3g. Also a PITA but I managed to have it last up until now with 2 rock nems and a small frogspawn that survived. After 2 horrible tanks to maintain as reef tanks I am here again now. I started the cycle on 4/29/18.

Here's my equipment list:

Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 10


Ikea Sektion Wall Cabinet

Filter & flow:
InTank Media Basket. Using Filter Floss, Chemi-Pure Blue Nano (after cycle), and Seachem Matrix.
10lbs of MarcoRocks Key Largo Dry Rock

6-8lbs of CaribSea Ocean Direct Natural Live Sand
MP10Wes (reef crest mode on 4)

Innovative Marine AUQA Gadget Spin Stream - Return Nozzle

Sicce Syncra 0.5 Return Pump

InTank Universal Aquarium Surface Skimmer

Auto Top-Off:

Smart ATO Micro

AquaIlluminations Nano and Controller (on the JBJ Cubey until after the cycle)


Cobalt Aquatics Neo-Therm Aquarium Heater 75w

Livestock Plans

2 or 1 Ocellaris Clown Fish
Wheeler's Shrimp Goby

Tiger Pistol Shrimp

1 Bubble Tip Anemone

2 Rock Flower Anemones (Still in my JBJ Cubey)
3 Sexy Shrimp

1 Cleaner Shrimp

1 Porcelain Crab

4 Nerite Snails
6 Florida Cerith Snails
10 Dwarf Cerith Snails
3 Nassarius Snails

Various Softies, LPS, and some hardy SPS

4/29 FTS

Good to have you back. I remember you’re fluval tank. I had the same but the edge. It was a PITA but still a cool little tank.

Good luck with the build.
