After selling my Red Sea Reefer 250 I decided to start a nano tank to keep my livestock, until I receive my new fish tank from marine depot.
I am hoping this set up lasts for a couple of months before taking it down.

This is my equipment:
Filtration is stock
Return pump I stock
Lighting t5 HO
Neo therm heater
And ATO

Corals are still adjusting to the new light.
Any comments or opinions are welcome
I will keep this threat updated.

That stock pump is a bit weak, you way want a small wavemaker for additional flow.

I was thinking of adding a HOB refugium for its benefits and to add more flow, for now I added a pump on one end of the tank to Maxine flow. If my corals don't like it then I might add the HOB refugium

If you're looking to replace the stock pump, the Aqueon 600 is what a lot of people use. It will need to be modded to fit.
