Tank size

24" x 14" x 16"

The tank comes with a cabinet stand which was bought locally from a pet store. The water volume of the dipaly tank is 18g + the sump/fuge which is roughly 9g


Lightning

4 x 24w T5

The tank is light with 4 x 24w T5 set made by Weipro. The stock t5 lights was not sufficient for my corals needs so I replaced it with ATI's 2 Aquablue Spezials and 2 Blue plus.


Circulation

2 Hydor Korallia2

and to add a ramdom flow, it is combined with a SCWD connected to the return pump Hydor Seltz L40 II rated at 700gph.



Filtration

DNW-110-6520

The main filtration is done by my Reef Octopus skimmer fed by my DIY overflow that drains to my sump.
edit:
now with Hydor Seltz L30 since Aug'08


Temperature Control

As my Nano tank is keep inside my room, I don't run any chillers or fan. Instead i have a heater which keeps the temperature between 24-25degC


Supplements

I'm using Two parts Daily but will be dripping kalkwasser soon.
edit
diluted kalkwasser from ATO


Introduction and Background

My nano has been running for 9 months. Most of the inhabitants are from my 5g desktop nano which I strip bare except for the softies. I started the sps around a month now after experimenting with the brown acro which thrived and colored up a bit. After which my interest on sps has begun, acquiring few colonies and frags.


On the other hand, may I adviced everyone that my approached might be quite uncommon. Please understand that i've spent hundreds of hours killing those reef forums trying to understand the possibilties of ovestocking a reeftank.

Here's the close-up shots of the inhabitants starting with My LargePolypStony Corals


Acan Randellsis courtesy of Boss Randell:

Not a fast grower but significant growth can be observed, the whole colony has more than 30 heads now since acquiring it from Randell sometime in March'07. I feed this acan maybe twice a week with brine shrimps.

Is this located locally? Also, where did you get your Koralia 2 that has the 220VAC 50/60Hz specs?

Thanks,
