So... here we go! I've been reef keeping since 2006. Had a 12g Nano Cube back then. Got it all up and running for 7-8 months and then crashed due to my lack of patience (slow and steady shall win the race this time). During my extremely long hiatus I've been lurking, learning and admiring all your amazing tanks. I'm now settled and working in Singapore and seeing as it's my birthday this month, I figured now is as good a time to start as any This weekend I popped into a highly recommended local LFS (Fresh N' Marine) and picked up a package deal with the following: My Tank Specs Display: Innovative Marine 10 Gallon NUVO Fusion Nano all-in-one aquarium, 12" x 15" x 13" Lighting: Innovative Marine 18x Skkye Light Clamp LED Light Heater: None I live in Singapore it's 90+ Degrees all the time Chiller: Above ^ Circulation: Stock NUVO Fusion return pump, SICCE Voyager Nano 1000 Skimmer: Innovative Marine Protein Skimmer Desktop Size Filtration: Innovative Marine Custom Caddy Fusion 20 Media Basket Filter Media: Prodac Filter Wool (Cut to Size), BOYD Chemi Pure, Top Off: Manual for now .... will consider if necessary Once I got back from the LFS to my Apartment, I went galavanting around Singapore looking for a proper stand for this thing. After checking a couple corousell ads I managed to find a nice dark wooden cabinet with glass doors that fit the bill. Getting it home was a bit of an adventure. Was ALOT heavier than expected. Lugging it down 2 flights of stairs didn't help either Once outside I Booked 3 Ubers...none of which the cabinet could fit inside. However, lucky Uber number 4 was large enough for it fit inside. Total cost $45 SGD including transport and a free workout...not bad. Now...after all this rambling I'm sure you'd like to see some photos! So please see below: Questions Is my back chamber water level too high? (See photos below) Skimmer -- I've never used one before. Should It be running during the cycle? White hair like tentacles sticking out of LR - Friend or Foe? (see photos below) Live Sand In...The cabinet looks good. Time for some Aquascaping Going for a small tunnel effect..may need more LR we shall see Light on and filled up with saltwater and no leaks Water level in back of tank with the skimmer...too high? View from the pump side for water level reference Scary looking white tentacle things...a few patches on the same rock another photo for reference
