Greetings all.

I am in the process of setting up a 120l nano tank, no sump. It will have an in tank DSB, live rock and a hangon skimmer.

Lighting will be 2 x 24w T5's and 3 x 39w T5's.

It will initially be setup with RO/DI water and Tropic Marin salt.

I am terribly undecided on what substrate to use, so until I decide on that the tank will just be an empty glass box, but I will post pics soon. :)

:lol: Thanks guys.

Viper got himself another algae farm
:yeahdude:
Is this your new tank in the UK ?
Yes, but it won't be my main tank, this is just something small to keep me busy until I move into my house then I can setup my main tank.

I had a quick look at one or two bags of that and it looked a bit coarse (sharp) and the grain size was fairly uneven, but I was rushing and didn't read exactly what the bags were, I will be going back today or tomorrow to spend some time and have a good proper look at what it all is. Is there a specific name/type that you would recommend?

How come you not using a sump.Good luck.
Hey Aslam, this is just going to be a sort of 'temporary' setup for now so I don't want to go all-out on this tank, plus I don't have any experience with in-tank DSB's and sumpless tanks so this will also be a new learning experience for me.

Some boring pics, but at least it's black silicone :slayer:

It's a Jewel Lido 120. And I haven't cleaned the front glass yet, it's still full of sticker glue from the shop :p

I dont really remember the exact type.I bought it from Liaquat.There were two types one was for my DSB the other was for my display...Im sure he will have some good recommendations there.Here's a few pics of the arag in my display:
