    Hello everyone. I'm looking to setup the 20 long with as little equipment in the tank and looking for suggestions on what too use from the equipment I already own. No sump on this one, so please no recommendations for drilling tank and adding sump.. Its in the works but not right now.

    Minimax desktop reactor running rox and gfo
    octopus hob skimmer or tunze 9001
    hydor 525 gph
    voyager nano 270 gph
    marina hob fuge with hydor pico pump 100 gph
    AC50 or AC70 currently packed with a little polyfil and purigen
    aquaclear powerheads 20 & 50

    Looking for suggestions on which items to use and where to place them for optimal flow.

    Stocking plans
    r. gramma
    ocellaris
    bicolor blenny
    small cuc
    Softies and lps(maybe sps if equipment isn't lacking) running an AI prime 8" above tank.

    You think I could run with one wavemaker and ditch the 270gph?

    Thanks, I'm currently setup with both wavemaker and an ac70 as fuge. Bh-100 skimmer. We'll take a look at removing one and see how things go.

    I had my rw-4 go out on me so I put a cheap surface skimmer 80gph & I notice my corals we’re happier.
