    Cool My Lagoon

    I've been out of the hobby for a few years & moved to CA from NJ. Finally ready to get started again and here's my setup:

    Tank: Innovative Marine Lagoon 25

    Stand: DIY Ikea Silveran Cabinet (https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10270770/)

    Rock: Vidarock Centerpiece (https://aqua-tecture.com/collections...=7534083276830)

    Light: AI Hydra 26 HD

    Tropic Eden miniflakes substrate (added after i took pics)

    Tunze ATO w/ 12~ gallon pet food container as reservoir

    Innovative Marine Desktop Skimmer

    Cobalt Neotherm 100w

    Syncra silent 1.0 return pump

    MP10QD

    Still to buy:
    Apex Jr mostly as failsafe for heater


    The idea behind this tank is to have mostly everything I want as far as equipment and to keep the look as clean/minimal as possible. I haven't put much thought into the livestock but will probably end up as a mixed reef with a few fish. I'm open to suggestions.

    I got some liverock from the LFS to start the cycling process about two weeks ago. The sand went in last weekend and dumped in some Bio Spira. I had some diatoms bloom before adding the sand & that is still going on this week. I'm not sure where I'm at in the cycle but I'll test soon. I'm thinking it will be a fast cycle since the vidarock is man made. I think I'll do a water change this weekend.

    Not much to look at now.

    Welcome, Jordan. I have a lagoon and love it. Great looking corals in the 40breeder. Looking forward to watching this come together

    Nice looking tank, how does the ATO look? It’s a pretty good idea I haven’t heard of yet.

    Nice tanks. I like the aqua scape on the 40b. Can’t wait to see how lagoon turns out.

    Thanks everyone. I'm excited to see how this one turns out as well. I plan on being sorta selective with the corals rather than loading up with a bunch of common stuff. I want to eventually check out Ali's shop and AquaSD looks like they have some nice pieces.

    It's a tunze nano ATO with this container (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I drilled a small hole in the lid to feed the wire/tube through to the pump. The container has wheels on the bottom so its easy to move around when full.

    Luckily, I think their hiatus was the same length as mine. They have some pieces on their site right now. It is pretty expensive but I think I got a decent deal on mine.

    I did a 5g water change today and did some tests a little later...

    Ammonia: .25 ppm
    Nitrite: 0 ppm
    Nitrate: 10 ppm

    I'm going to get some snails soon to take care of the diatoms.
