My corner tank sprung a leak for the second time so that was it for me. Bought this setup from Jeff and now I'm starting all over again minus the leaks.

Inverts

When it diatoms and you are ready for the first addition of inverts........it is on the house. Thanks for all the support bro. You are going to love the Nuvo. If you get a chance, put the specs up of that bad boy. I think most will be surprised at the punch this 38 can throw.

Having a seemingly unreachable vision. Working extremely arduous against all odds. Embracing and protecting the vision turned reality. Living the dream.
Life is not so bad after all.

Specs

Jeff is right, this little tank isn't so much a little tank as many people might think. Here's some of what this setup has to offer:

38 Gallon Capacity
8 mm High Grade Bent Glass
Tempered Glass Lid & Clips
476 GPH Pump w/ built-in Acrylic Filter Wall w/ Dual Overflows
2 Media Baskets
Mechanical Sponges
Activated Carbon Sponges
Phosphate Sponges
2 Flare Nozzles
Designated Heater Column
Designated Refugium Column

I upgraded mine with the 24" dimmable dual strip led's, 2 spin stream nozzles, and the Aqua Gadget SkimMate Protein Skimmer rated up to 65 gallons.

Anyone have an idea of what kind of algae the bright green stuff is?
