Hey Masa
After the feet(wooden ) of my tank broke and my stand collasped.
I made new steel feet for the stand . I added extractor fans as there was no circulation in the cabinet, and i fitted a filter sock ,redid the electrical and some of the plumbing .
I still want to add a reactor to my sump .

Sump:
I have my filter sock, skimmer , internal filter with matrix and carbon, reactor (waiting for media to arrive). 2nd compartment i have liverock.
And the return chamber i have my return chamber with 2 small bags of carbon.

Lighting i have a single 150w metal halide

Looks good, nice and neat. I would add a 2nd heater just in case that one fails.

Looking great. Very neatly done. Can you share some info about the extractor, I need one as well. My sump gets warm, pushes my temps up to around 27 deg.

I bought 3 cooling fans from a electrical hardware , fitted them to a 25mm aluminum angle iron . Cut a hole at the back of the cupboard ,face the fans to blow out . Fans run 24/7 . It doesnt drop the tank temp only temperature in the cupboard. I still add frozen 2l bottles of ro water to cool tank down on hot days

Cool, thanks. My sump feels to moist, so this would work for that at least.

Its very difficult not to overfeed a small tank with only a few fish in it. I got a nano running as well, with only 3 fish in it. I get small patches of algae in there. My main tank I overfeed totally. No algae.

Cut back on the food. Must be gone within a couple of minutes. Not a lot of competition so I would cut the normally advised 5 minutes down to 2 or 3 minutes.

The fish are so tiny! They are very cute when they are that size :)
What are the two to the left of the clownfish? Chromis?
