Finally got my ATO set up. Had to cut into the AIO kid to hide the float. Still working on hiding cords and cleaning up the area. The tank is going through it’s ugly stage but it has cycled. I adds some snails but holding off on any coral or livestock till thing quite down. Still need to find a upgraded light for the tank.

^nice! ATO are IMHO the best piece of gear that is great I would never get up a tank with out one. even more so for smaller tanks.

I dig that scape! gonna be fun to watch it fill in over the next few months!

Yeah I agree to be able to keep things stable got to have an ATO. I am still not 100% sure what direction I am going to go. Maybe different shroms, or zoa’s. My other tanks are mostly LPS with some SPS so might keep this one softies.

Big update I finally found a light for this set up. Went with a AI prime HD. Going to have it barrow my buddy’s PAR meter to see what settings I need. Still no corals or fish. A ton of pods and a few snails.

you will love the AI prime. if light spill is an issue for you. get the 3D reefing light diffuser  one of the best things I bought in a long time. 

 

so many schedules for the prime its crazy I did not even play around with it to be honest just went for the BRS AB+ with lowered levels for the nano.  

have fun with the tank and stay healthy!

Thanks for the info. I will look into the diffuser the spilling does not bother me to much as of yet. So far I like the light a lot and look forward to seeing what it can do.

This is a very slow build but I did get my first coral in the tank. I also added sand to the bottom and change my rock scape a bit. Anyone know a good preset schedule for the AI Prime HD on a 5 gallon tank for softies?

It’s been a busy month but I did add some corals to the tank. 203570FB-7130-4A32-8D1D-ADC2CBA8FCFC.thumb.jpeg.b367ef9a57fa12c942f844779151825d.jpeg711E38CE-33CA-46A6-9BFE-7E9E926E4611.thumb.jpeg.2702ada91a92159d2283fe6a2f66bff0.jpeg

Some eye candy from my 20 gallon nano.
