  1. Hello everyone, The story : I wanted a simple reef tank, smaller than my 20g peninsula (Here), and an easier maintenance. The maintenance on the 20g wasn't too bad but I'm really lazy, while I love a clean looking tank. I realized than a 20g was a bit too much for my current place and motivation, especially if something goes bad and I need an emergency water change. The plan : A simple looking rockscape that I can eventually take out of the tank when needed, especially for deep cleaning Bare bottom Enough stuff to make it simple to maintain (ATO, heater / fan with controler, etc.) One or two pieces of euphyllia (probably hammer) / some zoas with colors complementary to euphyllia At least one fish : a gobiodon or something similar Current FTS The system itself : I was happy to find a nice AIO Tank made by VIV : 30cm x 30cm x 30cm 27L / 7.5g Filtration : Chamber 1 : filter floss + media Chamber 2 : Chaetomorpha + light Chamber 3 : heater + return pump (sicce syncra nano) Wavemaker : SLW-10 really close to the bottom, behind the rock so the flow breaks and generate random pattern Light : AI prime 16 Controller for heater and usb fan ATO : simple system with a floating switch Livestock (so far) zoanthids : Lord of the rings zoanthids : Sunny D zoanthids : citrus cooler Red discosoma Reddish rhodactis sponges 2 astrea snails 1 other snail 2 hermits 2 hammer corals 1 montipora 1 paragobiodon 1 clownfish Next steps refrain impulsive buying wait till everything is thriving / growing refrain impulsive buying work on maintenance to get a routine refrain impulsive buying if everything goes right in the next few months, get more livestock enjoy the tank while drinking a cold beer Feedback so far : Knowing what livestock I was focusing on (nice hammer coral, softies to complete) was essential for choosing the equipment Testing the rockscape before gluing anything proved I'm shitty when it comes to measurements Having owned both AOI tanks and external filter tanks, I knew what to expect to the equipment I ordered Reefing is an addiction, but as long as you don't consume corals you should be ok
