If you can I would suggest starting as large as you can afford to. This sounds strange but if the tank is larger then you will have more time to react if water quality changes. Also it is more cost effective to start large because if you start small inevitably you will want to go larger. Nanos are great, i'm not bashing them. If you go to your local fish store they can hook you up with everything you need. besides nano cubes and the such generally have poor build quality, start with a 30 breeder

what kind of protein skimmer are you using?

I had 60 gallon reef tank. If you are thinking of getting one, don't do it. Only mother nature can obtain a reef tank. When the coral is dieing, you give it meds, which kill the fish, and the medicines for the fish, kill the coral. and you get an assload of problems in your tank, that everything starts to die, that's what happens to me and I felt so bad. I cried. So I suggest only to get a marine tank only!!!

This is only after a month? I talked with a guy at the local fish store today and he said it would be a long time before you can even put corals in let alone let it grow out like that. How did you get it so pretty is such a short amount of time?

Did you "add in" water sounds or is this thing loud as hell??? Sounds like a bath tub splashing around. I would tolerate that for 3 seconds.

Hey guys, I am just looking for some advice. I have always kept Reptiles and I am very good at it, But I have always really wanted a Marine tank. They just amaze me and I can watch for hours but they have put me off in the past mainly because they seem very hard to keep and maintain. Is there any tanks you can buy that come basically with ALL equipment built in, so in theory everything is already set up, and made allot easer for you, I would like this size of small nano tank to start me off.

Do you have problems with your anemone moving around your tank and stinging your other corals? I'm actually about to downgrade from my 30 gallon to a 12 gallon nanocube (not really a downgrade, just going down in size) and I was hoping to put one in for my true perc clowns. beautiful tank by the way!

@paolo333333 WD40. take the lid off and spray the inside of the fan nano cubes are dust collectors and often freeze up. So try that out if not just buy a new one I think they are 20 dollars or so

Joe Nocella - 11 years ago
@paolo333333 Thanks Paolo. I started my tank this week. I bought an Oceanic 14. So far it is doing OK with live sand and live rock. I will be buying some coral. Have you purchased any coral on-line? I'm thinking about it. The local shops here in NY are very expensive.

Hi Paolo, are u using the stock lights? or did u do any upgrades to it? I have the 12DX too, i was wondering if the stock lights are sufficient for roughly the type of corals that you are stocking.
Joe Nocella
Joe Nocella - 11 years ago
Beautiful tank! I'm thinking of starting one up. What would be the ballpark cost to set it up similar to yours? minus the fish and tank coast. I'm curious as to how much the live rocks, sand, etc... are. Thanks

Yeah tropical dude, got my heater filter everything I need , it's the same as your tank ( in size ) , I wanted a bala shark or a red tail shark but maybe it's too small, thanks a lot

TheBuck590 - 11 years ago
I really like your tank! and it has it inspired me to carry on with mine after a lot of negative comments that it would not work as a Marie set up. I started my tank in April it is a 12 gallon nano and I have live rock, two clown fish, one fire shrimp, one zebra hermit crab and one blue hermit crab they have all been very happy since may. Anyway I have joined this site so I could ask you how your bubble tip is doing in your tank, I am thinking about getting one but have been told it wont live.

Holy jesus. Yeah I think they look so awesome. Maybe when I get out of being a student I might invest, really seems to liven up a room. The growth rate (looking at your other videos) is crazy though, how can you contain it? Can you cut things back like plants or...?
Cameron Moore
Cameron Moore - 11 years ago
How much did this cost you? I heard it's insanely expensive. I looked into it a couple years back but was put off by the like every other day maintenance, difficulty with getting the water right and the cost.

Great tank. I have the JBJ 24 Gallon, and am having a real difficult time getting the wires/tubes through the opening of the hood. Any suggestions? Attempting to fit the heater, powerhead, and skimmer cord and air line is impossible. Did you mod your tank? Thanks.
