Calcium reactor, carbon doser, c02 cylinder and Kamoer X1 Pro 2 came today went with something a little cheaper as far as calcium reactors go (Aquamaxx CTech T-1) than what I am using on my 120 (Avast Seabones V2). I did however buy another carbon doser because it literally makes a calcium reactor a no brainer as far getting bubble size and bubbles per sec dialed in. I know most people think it is pointless to run a calcium reactor and Kalk stirrer on a tank this small, but just by dialing back the pH in the calcium reactor and a little math with Kalk stirrer they will eliminate most of the 2 part dosing and keep Cal and Alk very stable.
Oh also I received the Carbon Doser V2 which is now using the Tunze regulator and the controller box can now be mounted away from the Co2 cylinder.

This one is a corcea. I would like to get all of the common reef species.
Yeah I just love derasa and have had great luck with them. I have one in my nano over 8 months and doing great. Usually fully stretched out but the snail is ticking him off.

Here are some pics of the final tank Mike at Micro Reef is building for this setup and the final pic is a rough sketch of how it will work. The system will consist of 3 tanks the display the sump and a standalone refugium that will gravity feed into the sump, the area in the sump that was originally going to be used as the refugium chamber will now be a combination of biological filtration (Marine pure spheres) and a small area for a frag rack. The new display tank is 36x20x13½ which equates to a volume of 40 gallons roughly total system volume has basically doubled to 86ish gallons, so the display will still be a nano by volume but the system in a whole will be over.
I would love to hear what everyone thinks of this build the stand is currently being modified by the builder and should be completed around the same time as the tank.

Added: Ignore the 30 gallons in the picture as the dimensions of the Display tank had changed since the drawing was done.

Update pics!!! Euro brace is installed and returns are drilled, now all that needs to be done is to mate the overflow to the tank and polish the seams.
