  1. Forgot to mention I will cover the tank moving/transport fee (I will arrange N30 or any mover you prefer, you don't need to pay for that only the tank) Just want to clear the tank ASAP as it's been wasting electricity for me, very negotiable if fast sale (willing to drop to $1600 if deal before June ends), just shoot me a DM and try your luck haha
  2. Decomming my old 3x2x2ft crystal glass system (made by CRA) all in one go as no time to maintain hobby. Looking for around $2500-ish but very very negotiable if you taking everything in one go, just ask haha Comes with wavemaker, skimmer, pumps and lights all included. PM if interested in equipment list/details or have any questions All equipment working fine just neglected (or turned off)
  3. Any questions about set up just pm me, no need scared, I want you to know what you're buying haha. On a side note, if any reefers looking for mermaid cup macro, pm me also, there is still a few survivors
  4. Hi, I'm decomming my old custom made tank due to personal commitments. It's currently in a *extreme* state of neglect (algae overgrown). Used to be mixed reef/macro tank. Dimensions: 3x2x2 It's custom made by CRA with front and side crystal glass, overall condition is good, just needs cleaning up/water change and maybe replace the rusty hinges (they work perfectly fine, though), otherwise ready to go, misc corals still alive inside but not very happy because of neglect haha. No chiller as I keep it inside Aircon room. All equipment functional normally (of course, in a state of neglect, need cleaning haha) Key Equipment includes: 2x Noopsyche K7 pro II + controller 2x Maxspect Gyre Wavemaker + controller Bubble Magus Curve 3 Elite Nyos Torq 2.0 2x Sicce Syncra pumps Flipper magnet Tunze ATO Media Cups Jebao doser (pretty much barely used, with spare roller) Overkill amounts of mature siphorax, if you plan to make a high bioload 70gal fowlr no need to buy more media, just need to give a rinse. Trying to sell as one set if possible to quick clear, spent about just under 10k for equipment and everything. Looking to clear it for 4-5k. But honestly very negotiable, just pm me to ask.
  5. Hi, I'm decomming this Custom 3 feet front and side crystal-glass system made by CRA as I need to make room. Used to be a Mixed reef-Macroalgae tank. Most of the inhabitants have been moved out/sold, with some remaining for the time being. Some corals will also come with the tank as its stuck to the rock work. Complete and mature system, pretty much ready to go. Just need to clean up the overgrown algae and macro as I kinda neglected it for the few months I took to move the livestock out. But otherwise the remaining SPS inside still healthy and growing. No chiller as I keep it inside Aircon room. Key Equipment includes: 2x Noopsyche K7 pro II + controller 2x Maxspect Gyre Wavemaker + controller Bubble Magus Curve 3 Elite Nyos Torq 2.0 2x Sicce Syncra pumps Flipper magnet Tunze ATO Media Cups Jebao doser (pretty much barely used, with spare roller) Also have lots and lots of siporax, honestly overkill, if you're looking to buy mature media can DM me for a 2L bag. If you're interested or have questions, feel free to DM me, the total system price was around 10k excluding lifestock. I'm willing to negotiate anything between 5-6k, or honestly any reasonable offer you can make.
  6. The stock fluval light a is bit too weak, it's designed for Softies/LPS. It could work, but i recommend replacing/supplementing. Here's a very good example: https://www.nano-reef.com/forums/topic/381724-fluval-evo-135-crazy-sps-growth-after-lighting-upgrade/#comment-5490433 Unfortunately the Truelumen LEDs appear to have been discontinued but im sure there are other LED strips available on the market. Just make sure they can fit under the hood. And if all else fails, you can always DIY very simple LED strips, all you need to know is basic electronics. I can help you make one if you interested haha. As for gas exchange, since you already have a wavemaker, just point your return nozzle higher for more surface agitation. Ofc like JiaEn said, poor ventilation can affect the system too. Protein skimmer, I still think it's absolutely unnecessary ($80 for the Fluval PS2), might as well get an wood airstone and put it into the sump haha. That being said, my Pico 5 Gallon has about the same pH reading (if not lower) as yours. I keep my BTA and SPS inside just fine.
  7. Bro haha, anemones need a very mature/established tank one, they sibei sensitive. Not to say undoable (done it before, not easy) but keep a close eye on it and feed it regularly. Lighting may also be an issue if youre using the stock fluval light, but ofc continue to monitor. Biggest threat I can see now is your AI Nero, those things are mini blenders haha. You should try to get something to guard the intake. Try wrapping it with something like this. Just in case your anemone decide to go on a trip. Also day/night pH swings are normal. You can try to stabilise it with borate buffers like Aquavitro eight.four. Another possibility is low magnesium, test it out and let us know.
  8. Always after, ugly phase means the system is not balanced. Let everything settle first, then test for the essential chemicals.
  9. I know some people use Seachem Flourish Nitrogen, it's basically just pure concentrated nitrate (NO3) and ammonium (NH4⁺). Ammonium is just ionised ammonia (NH3), pretty much non-toxic to fishes unless youre actually trying to kill your fishes haha. It'll be processed by nitrifying bacteria into more nitrate just like normal ammonia. if you know anyone that sells pure Potassium Nitrate (KNO3), that would work better if not way cheaper. Since Flourish Nitrogen is Potassium Nitrate and Urea based. That being said, amino acids could work too, many brands on the market, I'm sure some bros can recommend you the good ones.
  10. Unfortunately, pretty much all angel fishes are not reef safe. Even the popular Pygmy/Dwarf Angels (Centropyge) are "reef safe" with caution. However, there are numerous success stories with Coral Beauty Angel (Centropyge bispinosa) Of course, it's all dependant on the temperament of the fish.
  11. Actually, considering that you first found them when the lights are off, I suspect it's something else. Do you have Cerith snails in the tank? If you have, I think it may be Cerith eggs, they look similar but Ive never see them move so much before. Maybe your tank has very high flow haha
  12. If I'm not mistaken, you're using a 10 gallon tank now right? For tanks 10 Gal and below, no need to get skimmer IMO. Your weekly water change is already at least like 50% already, that alone will pull more nutrients from the water then your tiny skimmer. (Assuming you use the standard large 20l plastic pail) Just don't overstock (if you want also can, but you get ready change water every 3 days like haha, macam discus tank at this point) You want try? Also can, but cheap Chinese venturi skimmers normally have microbubble one, some people will think it's irritating. Also can try the limewood diffuser (airstone) skimmer, they work well for small tanks. Saw a bunch of Japanese nanos using them.
  13. I mean, I can't think of another way haha. You can always have someone who has experience to do it for you. Maybe Vincent from AA? Also as ridiculous as this sounds, I feel like a classic tank top sump would be a good choice. Obviously not the prettiest, but can save you lots of headache. Only need one pump and let it overflow into your display. Something like this maybe? I'm sure with some creative touch, you can make it look perfect. Plus you don't have to destructively modify your display tank too.
  14. Pretty much haha Bubble Magus is the default cheap and reliable one IMO. Deltec is the classic, also very good. Nyos is just overpriced, cool design though. Also got reef octopus, tunze, and some other brands. Different people will say different things one, their mileage may vary after all. I think what's more important is to get it from a reputable seller that will actually help you if the skimmer runs into issues. You can get the best skimmer, but quality control can occasionally miss a faulty unit. When that happens, I'm sure you want a seller that actually helps you out instead of leaving you in the cold.
  15. I agree with darrance, if you really want to get into this hobby, you're gonna save quite a bit of money in the long run if you get a proper/bigger chiller. If you are just trying out, a fan/cheap shrimp nano chiller would be far more friendly on the wallet. Those nano chillers are normally thermoelectric, not a lot of moving parts for it to really break, just make sure to get from a good seller. Without chiller or fan also can, just keep your tank in a cool shaded area, and don't let temp spike above 28°C. I've kept a 10 Gal without chiller for a long time without much issue (keeping mainly soft coral and easy LPS/SPS). But ofc if you plan to keep anemone and other sensitive SPS, chiller is strongly recommended. Hailea is a good, reliable and cheap brand, lots of users in SG. As darrance had said, try to get the newer HK model if space/budget permits as its much quieter/efficient.
