  1. So I started a build thread on another forum but after reading all you guys' threads I thought this might be a better place to journal this build. What's up guys?! I'm Daan from the netherlands. I've been into reefing for over 6 years. After starting a freshwater tank I stumbled upon BRS' youtubevideo's. I'm in love ever since. Due to some planned construction on the house for a bigger kitchen/dining room, and yes ofcourse a bigger tank, I recently sold my reefer 350.After that I changed jobs. With the new job came my own office. To keep my fingers salty and to stay in touch with the hobby, I bought a second-hand red sea max nano to set up as an office tank. Which, to be honest, kinda is a dream come true. The reason I went secondhand is to see if the set up is maintainable in a work-environment. The size allows me to drain the tank and take it home during holiday breaks. Equipment- All the equipment that came with the red sea max nano.- Old mp10 I had laying around.- Once the cycle is complete I'll invest in a ATO to keep stable parameters.- Once waterchanges can't keep stable ca/alk/mg I'm adding a doser and prob try all-for-reef by fauna marin.Stocking plans fish- Pair of bullethole snowflake clownfish once properly cycled.- When the tank is matured (1-2 years) I might add a small lawnmower blenny if I happen to need one, otherwise a fridmani or a royal gramma. I'd love a sixline-wrasse for pestcontrol but I'm afraid to take my chances with aggression in a tank this small.That'll probably be it. I want this tank to be as low maintainence as it can be for the types of corals I plan on keeping.Stocking plans coral- Mainly Zoa's and different kind of LPS like acan's and a couple of euphyllia's.- Maybe a green and purple monti-cap, if I trust the system can sustain them.- Due to the size-restriction I'm focusing more on finding some cool frags instead of trying to fill the tank out as quickly as I can.I'm going to keep filtration on this build simple and just stick to the basics:- 25-30% waterchanges each week, which is easy peasy in a 20 gallon.- red sea skimmer.- Cured dry rock.- 10 maxspect nano ceramic balls in the rear sump.Currently in week 1 of the cycle. I started it with a fresh shrimp, pulled it out after 3 days. I'm pretty much going to follow the BRS/WWC hybrid method and their 4-month cycle. Keeping the lights off 'till I know the tank has stabelized a bit. I'll be enjoying this view A LOT in the years to come. Cabinet is prob. going to be switched out by something a bit more my taste. Inherrited this one from a colleague. Have a piece of rock curing in bleach atm, gonna ad that to the top-right of the scape which is gonna give some verticallity to the whole thing. I'll share a FTS once it's in. If you made it trough this long ramble, thank you.. 🙂
