Wow, very nice! And good timing for me, too, as I was just taking measurements last night to see how well a 20G Nuvo would fit on an IKEA Kallax. I have my Biocube 16 on one, and I’m trying to persuade my husband we need a Nuvo on the other Kallax right next to it - your awesome pics may help, so thank you!!!

Thanks! The kallax is pretty spot on perfect for this tank, I love it.

Thanks, my gf picked it out last black Friday, it's gone through some ups and downs, the plate skeleton it was on is actually popping out some more baby plates, which is odd because the babies are different colors, so we'll see.

One thing I also want to point out, tank is somewhat in a recovery mode at the moment, I'd say roughly 4-5 weeks ago I somehow got 10 gallons of freshwater from the LFS and did a 50% water change and lost quite a few acro frags. Tank seems to be recovering quite well, I've also been switching salt from Fritz to E.S.V which is super clean.

I also want to show the growth in cheato, this is just over two weeks growth, this thing is kicking ass!

Oh man, good argument for always checking salinity before using new water... I just started doing so more consistently after getting a Milwaukee digital refractometer.

Right, I've definitely made it a habit to check before doing water changes. The gyre has also helped tremendously with keeping detritus from under/on the rocks.

That is so cool that your plate is making babies! I’m going to need to read up on plate reproduction!! How many baby plates are we talking about? Will you have a full set of china soon? 😬😂 Sorry, couldn’t resist that one... so corny haha.

Stopped in the LFS with one thing in mind, chalices, so I left with these.

Let us know how they fare in freshwater. 😉

Tank definitely took a hit with the freshwater water change but it's bouncing back, I almost sold it after that but I'm glad I didn't. So, these are the baby plates that are growing out the old plate skeleton, can't wait to see what they look like.
