I want my tank to look like a jungle with like big montis swaying lps and softies leathers shrooms zoas a wall of gsp and some caleurpa leaves and other cool large leafed and some small leafed for detail macros to accent the big corals. I am going to take what I know from freshwater aquascaping to make a beautiful saltwater scape
Don't think it's all going to fit in a 20 gallon

Nitrate dosent need tests in saltwater right? What I have heard is the chemistry of saltwater makes it not hurt stuff
nope we definitely need to know nitrate, phosphate, calcium, magnesium, and alkalinity if we want to keep corals, like LPS or SPS, and even the softies will benefit from running better parameters

50% is tough on some corals, might be better to sticking to 20% once a week, if you dont have lps, nps or hard corals i wouldnt worry about dosing or testing calcium, mag, and alk for the at least 6 months

I love this style of aquascaping in freshwater and I wanna mimic it in my sw, lots of plants/coral and a land feature
