I’ve got the fluval 13.5. Have had it goin since October 2020 until now. It’s pretty much stock except that I’ve upgraded the light to the 16hd. Filtration is stock except for a couple adjustments. I Cut the block in half, have the bio media in chamber 2 with half the foam block and in 1st chamber I have a uv sterilizer the foam block and floss filter on top of it all. Chamber 3 houses my heater and chemi-pure. If you plan on running stock light. I used the nicrew ramp up/down timer to kinda simulate sunrises and sunsets. But you are limited to coral with that light. Hope my tidbit helps and good luck!!!! Good tank so far, I’ve been in the hobby with this as my starter tank. Has gone wellish so far.
