    I'll be upgrading from my modded and very stocked Boyu TL450 to a Lidless 24G JBJ. I'm intending the system to be mixed reef with more softies than SPS.

    Here's my inspiration >>> Sushi's ELOS - Nano-Reef.com Forums

    ^^^Note this is not my tank, I wish :) just the look i'm going for :)



    Here's my intended stocking list (* denotes from my current tank)

    Fish

    2 x False Percula Clowns *
    1 x Byno Goby *
    1 x Royal Gramma
    1 x Goby (i'm veering to a twinspot but open for suggestions)

    Inverts & CUC

    2 x Cleaner Shrimp (*I have 1 already)
    2 x Blue Legged Hermits *
    3 x Turbo Snails * (1 Large, 2 Small)
    1 x Emerald Crab

    Corals

    Zoas *
    Paly's *
    Rics *
    Xenias * (I need to seriously keep these guys in check though)
    GSP * (ditto)
    Yellow Polyps *
    Green Hairy Mushroom *
    Blue Sponge *
    Sun Coral

    Yellow Alveopora *

    Rose Bubble Tip Anenome or a Hammer

    Pink Pocillopora *
    Red Montipora *
    Green Birdnest *
    Green Monti Digi *

    I'll probably look at getting another Monti as well :)

    Substrate

    Playsand (I like the look) *


    The build is going to be a bit different to normal. I want all the filteration to be handled by an external filter as there will be no external sump. The internal sump on the JBJ will be converted into a refugium (2nd compartment) to handle nitrate export.

    So..

    Return Pump

    ViaAqua 1800lph(I dont know if this will be enough tbh)

    Internal Flow

    1 x Seio Polario 4ML *
    1 x Boyu Wavemaker + Timer *

    Filteration

    Jebo 805 External Filter rated for 400L (not the best but it'll do I rate) *

    Dymax LS10 Skimmer *

    8kgs of LR *

    Internal Sump

    1st Compartment - Skimmer and external filter inlet

    2nd Compartment - Natural Refugium lit from the back of the tank (Cheato etc etc)

    3rd compartment - Purigen and ElimiPhos + Return pump and External Filter Return

    Lighting

    Custom 10000k 150w MH *

    Planning on an LED setup but it can wait for now.

    Cooling

    2 x PC fans * connected to a Temperature controller (waiting for it to arrive)

    Evaporation will be handled by an external low pressure pump connected to a float valve and a 20L reservoir *


    So the everything is pretty much here, I painted the stand on Saturday so just waiting for it all to properly dry :)

    sounds awesome, isn't the tank going to be a bit small for an anemone?

    Ok so this tank didnt come to fruition. There were too many scratches on the tank for it to warrant being a display tank. It is running but its currently being used as a QT and frag tank.

    The new tank build thread is here
