first pico, filter question

Recommended Posts

Good morning and happy Friday to all!!

 

I'm starting my first pico reef today. I picked up an Aqueon mini bow 2.5 with super cheap LED (will upgrade) and HOB filter. I'm planning on sexy shimp eventually but for now it will be a brine nursery, zoa and nuisance hermit holding tank. My question is, what does everyone run for filtration? I ordered some chempure blue nano, the HOB is very small and I think this is all I can fit in it.

What kind of HOB is it? Will you have additional flow? If it's a small one like the Azoo one, you might consider upgrading to something with stronger flow, like an Aquaclear 20 or 30. Otherwise you may need a small powerhead.

I 2nd that. You should be good with the chemipure,but depending on the filter you will probably beed a powerhead.
