Whats up, been a while since I've posted in here. Recently sold my 45 gallon shallow reef. I wanted something smaller. So I picked up a Innovative Marine Fusion 20. I like the setup and look of the tank.
This is going to be my build thread. Follow along if you'd like!
Alright, so far I purchased all the basics to get the tank up and running.
-Fusion 20 aquarium.
-Aqua Illuminations Prime LED
with tank mount
-via aqua 100 watt heater
-Marco dry reef rock
-fiji pink dry sand
-IM filter sock upgrade
Day 1 water parameters
Will be doing a fishless cycle. I put a few food pellets to start getting the ammonia up. I seeded the sand and dry rock with, I'm not sure the name, theyre very porous balls made of rock ? My lfs
gave them to me to help with the cycle. You can see them in the pictures. Once cycled I'm going to put them in the chambers so they'll be out of sight. Apparently they're so porous that a rock the size of a softball is equivalent to 50 pounds of live rock.
