It’s has been a couple years since I’ve had a reef tank. I have spent the last couple of years focusing on my 120 gallon discus aquarium as well as high tech planted aquascapes. I decided last month to try an AIO aquarium and ended up going with an Innovative Marine Nuvo 20 gallon. As of today I am on day 12 of the fishless cycle. I’m using Dr. Tims bacteria and ammonium chloride. The stand is a custom stand I built. Lighting is a single AI prime HD. I decided to go with a mix of branch and regular caribsea life rock and 20 pounds of live sand. Salt mix is Fritz RPM. Filtration will be an IceCap k1 nano skimmer, intank baskets with filter pads and marine pure media. I plan on using an ATO ( tunze osmolator) and possibly a small media reactor or small refugium in the remaining chamber. Most likely will stock just a pair of clowns and mixed coral. Looking forward to the journey.
