  • ZEOliths & JBJ Nano Cubes..

    I was curious. Would I be able to put a smaller amount of ZEOliths in a bag in the back sections of my nano and use the ZEO system?

    They wouldn't have to be in direct flow as I could manage to put them in a "dead zone" of flow.

    Just curious..

    It's 12gs.

    Hi Sean, you sure can. Just try to leave some space to "shake" the bag once a day.Bob

      It won't matter that I can't do 3 on/off setup?

        Nope, I don't think that's feasible Bob

          do you have a skimmer on the tank? Cause wouldn't you need a skimmer?

            I don't have a skimmer, I would replace skimming with more frequent water changes.

            A skimmer is not an option on this confinded tank.

                I'm interested too. Are you doing sps in it? Also are you going to upgrade the lighting and to what?

                  This project is on hold till I can get rock; I can't afford the $177 premium aquatic wants to ship me 15 lbs. I'll be driving to visit a friend and I'll purchase some rock from him in the next couple of weeks.

                  Allow me to outline the project and give you a brief intro:

                  I have a 12 OG (24w) JBJ nano; I just purchases a new DX hood (2 fans, 48w PC light).

                  Pump - I'm using a MaxiJet1200 in the back to do my flow, it makes a little heat, but I don't have a problem battling it; but you can't beat 300gph in a 12g. *completed*

                  Light - I'm adding 48w MORE PC light to the hood. Roughly ~$82 for the ballast + remote leads.

                  Surface skimming - I found this mod on nano-reef; using part of an old cassette tape case, you can reproduce an overflow box effect on the rear vent. (I'll get a link later).

                  I want the tank to keep his nano cube look with all the clean lines. So I want to use ZEO to help me combat the nutrient levels that may arise in the tank. As for coral, I would love to have SPS and I probably will once I have the tank up and running.
