What are the tank dimensions?
Question by: Sovann on May 20, 2016 8:43:00 PM
24" x 20" x 19"
Answer by: Carter (Admin) on May 24, 2016 12:11:00 PM
What lights in the led range would you recommend for this tank? Planning on having low to moderate corals. Also, what protein skimmer would you recommend for this system?
Question by: Donald Bowling on Mar 29, 2016 8:19:00 PM
Great question!
For protein skimmer you are limited to the Ghost midesize by Innovative Marine. As for lighting there are a lot of options including the Radion XR15, AI Hydra 26, Kessil a360 or a160. These are out current favorite options with different control and features between them. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 31, 2016 1:58:00 PM
I've heard the Ghost skimmers are difficult to get a desirable skimate. Are there other HOB skimmers you would recommend for the 40 or 50 gal? And can other skimmers fit within the compartment? Also is the 40 gal available as tank only without the extras? Thank you
Question by: Lisa on Jun 17, 2016 1:35:00 PM
Great question!
on our office tanks 2 of the Nuvo 40's we have had great success with the ghost skimmer. any small body skimmer will be difficult to tune exactly however they do perform enough removal to keep our tanks running smoothly with regular water changes. We do not recommend an alternative hang on skimmer as this will add a lot of bulk and hassle. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Does this tank come with a filtration system?
Question by: Adrian on Jan 10, 2017 5:33:00 PM
Great question! The only filtration this tank will come with is two filter socks that fit in the filter chambers in back. There are many filtration systems available for this tank, but they are sold separately. :-)

250 mL Instant Ocean Bio-Spira

Use BIO-Spira in newly setup saltwater aquariums to make it fish safe. Live nitrifying bacteria reduces fish loss in marine aquariums due to ammonia and nitrite toxicity. BIO-Spira can also be used after a water change, when adding new fish, or after medicating your saltwater aquarium.


500mL Brightwell Erase-CL Dechlorinator

Erase-CL is an all purpose Chlorine, Chloramine and Ammonia remover.  If city water is used for any type of aquarium a dechlorinator should be used to neutralize any chlorine or ammonia that may be in the water supply.  The best case scenario would be to use RODI water for your aquarium, however many people have have very successful aquariums using Brightwell Aquatics Erase-CL.

  • Incredible tank, incrediboe shipping, and incredible customer service By Garrett on 3/16/2017

    I have had little luck getting tanks in one piece from certain retailers...I decided, why not order from BRS? After all, they always give me the size rocks I ask for in the order. I asked for them to pack it extra well, and they called me and went above and beyond to ensure me they'd do everything they could to get that tank up and running :) Amazing tank...the entire kit is a steal! I had rock and sand already, but now I have more to properly QT coral and fish. Thank you BRS
  • Prefect for Beginners that want a fast start to saltwater tank By Michael on 2/23/2017

    This kit comes with almost everything you need to start a new tank. It took me a bit to find out how to use everything. Biggest issue I had was trying to UPS to get this whole thing up to my apartment in the third floor. The price cant be better. I am so happy that I started with this kit vs having to get everything myself.
  • Great for beginners By bernhart on 7/24/2016

    The kit comes with everything you need to start an amazing tank. I was a little worried about my acquascaping ability’s with the rock they gave me but it came together perfectly. With all the stuff you can put into the rear sump area keeping a clean tank so far is easy. Super happy with this purchase as a new reefer.
