The tank is a JBJ Cuby 10G, it has Starfire Glass and I've built a custom enclosure for it.
The back section has a Biocube 2 skimmer, and a small fuge using a submersible light.
Light is provided by an AI Nano, it runs 10 hours per day at about 30W.
Flow is provided by the stock return, and a Tunze Nanostream 6040 with battery backup.
Control is provided by an Apex Classic.
Fans cool the tank, and a small 50W heater in the back heats it.
ATO is done by the Apex and has pressure switch by Avast controlling the normal level.
Parameters are as follows:
Temp 76.5 to 77.5
Phosphate is between 0.08 and 0.15
Nitrate is below 5
PH is 8.0-8.3
I dose with Tropic Marine All for Reef to maintain CA/ALK using a Drews Doser.
I use Tropic Marine salt, and do monthly water changes.
