    Thanks. :)

    Aside from the tank in there now is some substrate(~25mm), marine salt(375g) and a huge 3kg live rock. I'll take some more pics once things start to clear a bit.

    So far it's just the Nano 8 kit with the LED's and pump and sponge filter. Will start getting the other bits I need as the cycling progresses, looking for all the advice everyone here might have.

    That small tank regular water changes. A small skimmer will help a lot. Hope the LED is strong enough for corals

    How often would I be looking at changing water?

    A skimmer and a few other bits are already on the list.

    Not sure how much is going to end up in there, but I've seen other Nano 8 setups with the kit LED's packed full of stuff.
