Along with a very good friend and neighbor we started each one of us a 14 g (54L) reef nano aquarium: dimentions 38cmx38cmx38cm cubic. He is very good when it-s about DIY and he will also provide me osmosis water all the time for water changes.
The aquarium will have a sump (about 6g) (20L) and I have designed it miself based of what I`v read on this website.
I will maintain a 10% weekly water change (using RED SEA PRO salt - the only one available atm in my city) and also Prodibio bacteria.
First thing I bought was a auto water adjust system (When water evaporates) it-s not a complex one but I have read good reviews about this thing.
Monday I will get my LED lamp - 1W bulbs (about 12 white 17 blue)
I have a water current pump (SUNSUN 3000l/h but I think it-s a bit too much for this nano) so I was thinking of Sicce Voyager Nano Reef 1000-2300l/h (adjustable flow)......is it ok ?
This is how I want to establish my aquarium on the stand:
I found lots of aquarium related stuff in my warehouse that I will use for future DIY projects
I will use a 11W neon lamp on the sump refugium.
I will also use live rock and live sand
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
PS atm I got a 280 L African cichlid aquarium. I hope you like it. I will keep it along with the reef nano tank.
