Codiene posted a topic in Nano Reef JournalsHello all. As the title states this is my post about building my nuvo 20 reef. I currently have a 150 reef at home and wanted to put a smaller tank at my office due to the fact that I spend 40-50 hours a week there and will have the time to enjoy it. The deciding factor for me was that a recent dental journal did a report stating that 5 min staring at a fish tank lowers stress levels and pain experienced (which allows me to make this a business expense). The tank will be sitting on a shelf in my dental operatory and floor space is limited so I cannot use a stand to store anything. Although the tank is rimless I need a canopy so the led does not shine in my patients' eyes when I lean them back (and it hides everything). The electronics will be mounted on the wall below and to the left of the tank and I will be building a small wood cabinet to hold all of it. I will also be building a cover for the ATO reservoir. All wood will be stained to match the wood trim in my office. I recently upgraded my home tank to a digital aquatics Archon and had a reefkeeper elite sitting in a box so it will control this tank. My hardware will consist of: Nuvo 20 INtank media basket in right return with filter floss and chemipure blue IM media basket in left return full of live rock rubble with filter floss on top. 2 cobalt mj1200s as return pumps, each going to a spin stream an eheim jager 75watt heater in right accessory spot SB reeflights 16" wifi led frag freaks magnetic float switch holder in ATO reservoir for low level sensing. 2 eshops triple probe holders, one in left accessory spot for reef keeper pH and temp probes and one in center return area for 2 float switches and return hose mounting. Digital aquatics reef keeper elite with sl1, sl2, mlc and 2 power bars 4.5 gallon acrylic ato reservoir from advanced acrylics. custom base for tank custom canopy custom ATO reservoir cover custom electronics cabinet. I will update this thread as the project progresses over the next couple months. here Is a pic of the current progress
