Hey reefers! I started this nano reef project back in May of this year and wanted to start my tank thread here on R2R. Latest FTS above (taken tonight).

I'm going for a desert-inspired, minimalist, natural look... if that makes any sense. LOL.

Here are the deets:

Equipment

Tank: Innovative Marine Fusion Nuvo Pro 20g Peninsula (30" x 11.8" x 13")
Stand: West Elm Buffet (40" x 19" x 27")
Return Pump: MightyJet 326 gph w/ Controller (came stock with the tank) with Spin Stream Nozzle
Circulation: 2 x Aqamai KPS
Heater: Cobalt Neotherm 75w
Main Light: NanoBox Duo Plus M - with custom side mount
Back Light: S Smiful LED Aquarium Light
ATO: XP Aqua Duetto

Current Livestock

Fish: a pair of tiny ocellaris from Sustainable Aquatics. They were labeled as "SA Fancy", but they look like a slightly more vibrant version of a basic ocellaris. They are named Nemo and Nemo II.

  • Purple Plume Gorgonian

Oh, I also have a volcano/Hawaiian-themed pico right next to the 20g. :)

Thanks for stopping by! I'm still relatively new to R2R, so I'm looking forward to meeting and interacting with reefers here.

Great looking setups! love mangroves!
Thank you! I love the mangroves as well! They add a nice touch. I spray them down with RO water every other day or so. I know they will eventually need dedicated grow lights, but so far they are doing well.

Awesome! Two great tanks, one great thread!
Glad to see you over here! Thanks for stopping by!
