This has been a pending project for way too long. Originally picked up a 40g breeder but there really wasn't enough room in her bedroom for that tank. Thanks to Ricardo, we got a 20g tank and stand for the project. They have been sitting in the garage for a few months while rock has been curing in the 40g in the garage.
Drilled the tank yesterday, got a flexible drain line from the pile of random reef crap in the garage, put in the bulkhead. Ordered an over the rim return and put some dry sand in the tank. I have to go get some plumbing stuff at Lowes and figure out how I'm going to create a baffle without buying a full sheet of glass. Ordered a 400gph return pump. Going to run the return line through a reactor with a mix of carbon and gfo. I have an ATO, a weird led and a small tunze Skimmer though primary nutrient exportation will be from chaeto refugium.
Livestock is going to be two of the closest that currently live in my 170g tank, a couple bubble tip anemones, some gsp, xenia and zoas.
