    Hey there MASA Reefers….:)
    So after posting info on the Aquaria AMW102 last week on MASA I had a lot of PM's and requests to set up one of our Aquaria AMW102 ….well I did just that for all of you and I must say I really enjoyed it….:thumbup:
    [​IMG]
    Here is the setup and pics….
    [​IMG]
    Firstly unpack the box and gave the Nano a really good wipe down as there was quite a bit of dust from the shipping and packing….
    [​IMG]
    One important thing I did was add a piece of polystyrene under the Nano to adsorb any unevenness. I then added my washed coral sand to the Nano….
    [​IMG]
    Added some nice well cured live rock….

    And yes as always I recommend Aquaria Ammonia stones. I washed the dust off the Ammonia stones and added them to the ceramic rings 50/50. I also added an extra layer of ammonia stones….

    I now added some coral sand to the DSB cartridge….

    Check out how nice and neat the filter chamber is….And reefers the best part is one can work in it with ease as there is enough space for your whole hand to fit in.

    Ok time to add the salt water….
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Used Aquaria Coral Reef salt and RO water from our Aquaria RO unit….
    [​IMG]
    Ok now its time to switch on….

    Tested the Moon lighting out….WOW 4 x LED Moon light and I must say the nicest and most effective Moon lighting I have seen on a Nano before….

    The filter system really runs well ….
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Two extra items I added to my Aquaria AMW102 Nano 1 x Aquaria AHA100w heater and some Aquaria carbon in the last chamber in a filter stocking….
    Well MASA Reefers our Aquaria AMW102 120Lt Nano is really nice, I know I’m going to really enjoy stocking it and watching it mature in time. If you are looking for a really nice size Nano with a decent and thought after filtration, good lighting then this is definitely the Nano for you….and for it price it’s well worth it considering you get the following….:yeahdude:
    120Lt Nano
    T5 lighting x 4
    Moon light LED x 4
    Protein Skimmer
    Return Pump
    Easy to maintain filtration….. and the only Nano with a DSB on the SA market….
    I’ll keep you all up to date with pics as my Nano progresses ….it’s now time to wait….
    Regards

    My Aquaria AMW102

    Hi Cameron:)
    Thank you for your comment it is really a cool tank:). I didn’t really buy the Aquaria AMW102 Nano it as I’m the owner of Aquaria , but I’m sure you will be able to purchase one of them at your local pet store, the suggested retail Price should be around R4995.00 to R5399.00 but this prices may differ at some stores:yeahdude:. Please post some pics once you have set up one for yourself.
    Regards

    Lawrence

    Hi there:)
    We did bring in a 100% back up of spears for our range of products,:thumbup: so yes the skimmers would be available if there was a problem , but I'm sure we can arrange a skimmer should you require one . Go to your local pet store and ask them to contact us and we will arrange some thing for you.:thumbup:


    Hi there:)
    Our skimmer in the Aquaria AMW102 Nano is rated for a 130Lt and is branded under the Aquaria name.:yeahdude: We have a full range of other skimmers check out some of our other posts or our web site www.aquaria-sa.co.za.:thumbup:

    Hi There
    No the product is not made in SA , It is made in China.

    Hi there
    Sorry we won't be able to supply you directly :( as we are wholesalers and only wholesale to the pet stores. Feel free to PM us and we can tell you which is your closet store that stocks our range.
    Regards
