Will be documenting the progress of my "boujee" nano build, the goal of this build is to create an easy to maintain small volume system to house sps and a zoa garden.

Equipment:
Fiji Cube 10 gallon AIO (Love the space of this AIO and the weir system pulling from the top and bottom)
Custom Cabinet
2x AI Prime HD (One fixed mount, one flex mount)
Hydor Koralia Smart Wave Pump
2x Hydor Koralia Nano 240gph (Wavemaker and Powerheads are the same price as Nero3 prefer the dependability of AC)
JBJ Nano ATO
Aqueon Frameless Cube 3gal (ATO reservoir)
Bayite Temperature Controller
Cobalt Neotherm 75W Heater
Red Sea ReefDose (On reserve list, Fingers Crossed)
Red Sea Red-Yellow Tube Kit.
Dosing containers undecided custom or DIY

Tank is Cycled with Brightwell Live Rock Kit. Middle chamber is Marinepure Biospheres to make up surface area lost to sandbed. Filtration is simply filter floss and rox carbon as needed. Waiting on a few pieces of equipment to get delivered and the stand. Have about 40 frags that I've been holding in my main tank to move over while I wait. Will upddate tomorrow.

Stand is here, going to be a busy weekend for me hope to get everything put together and mounted. Got almost all the coral moved over, will have to move the tank when the stand is done so nothing is glued down at the moment.

Dang that looks so clean. Mine looks messy in comparison and I thought I did a good job.
Is the stand from Fijicube? what's the iPad for?
The stand is a bathroom sink vanity from the local home improvement store that I customized. The pad controls the on off for the return pump, the lights, the nero 3, and the dosing pumps.
