Hey everyone,

Did a tank transfer from my Aquatop ES18 9.8g bowfront into a NUVO20 I had sitting around.

Original tank:

New setup:

I filled the Custom Caddy media trays with crush coral (substrate from previous tank).

Running 2 Sicce Syncra Nano return pumps
Aquaknight LED running on a Kasa smart plug for automated scheduling
Duetto ATO
Small asian rice container for ATO water storage.

I'm digging the clean bare bottom look for this tank. Now need some nice meaty corals for the bottom lol

As I get ready for my new 225g monster of a tank coming in the next couple weeks I had to decide what to do with my huge leathers as I want to go SPS dominant in the monster and don't want to deal with leather secretion annoying/killing my sps.

But I couldn't bare to get rid of these so looks like I'll be keeping this tank running and hosting my precious leathers. I'll be trimming and making a lot of frags to keep them at this optimal size.

Blue finger leather is reunited with the small clown here which decided to call it home back when I introduced it from @Jessican in my 10g bowfront. The clown instantly went back into it once I put it into this tank today.

What are your lighting parameters?
I have a 20g Nuvo and I can't keep SPS alive for the life of me.
I don't have sps in this tank. My light is just a cheap Aqua Knight. On from 9am to 9pm. Here's the most recent picture from today.

So beautiful, is the toadstool the one from me?
Thank you. And yes.

I got the opportunity to get an Australian Spider Coral from someone. This will eventually move into my 225g once it's established and if I can keep it alive until then. I know these don't usually last long in captivity but I'm hoping I can learn to care for this and get it to grow well.
