I would recommend more Live Rock. At least 1.5x the gallonage of the tank. Don't add uncured LR to the system now though since you already have some livestock.


I would follow LadyDragon's advice and wait for a few weeks to make sure all the water parameters are stable.


Also, with the amount of wattage in your hood, you should stick to low/med light softies...mushrooms, ricordea, etc.


Hope that helps.


Good luck!

I think you would be safe with:





And you could probably even swing bubble coral or frogspawn as long as you feed them some and don't expect huge growth.


You could also get a Sun Coral since it needs no light at all. But, it requires feeding it manually at least 3x a week.


Hope that helps. I am sure some of the other people on this board have many more suggestions.

Just set up a Nano Cube yesterday -- ~20 lbs. LR, 12lbs. LS. Tell me more about why you eliminated the bio balls. And how you crafted a surface skimmer.

the bio balls are known to get nitrates / nitires way up where you dont want them, the skimmer has failed me and is not working oh well! try try again!
