Thx Keith. Its pretty much a neon toadstool farm, but oh well lol. Still young...

Nice! I kinda wish I woulda went with the 25 instead of the 20. The extra few inches front to back are totally needed IMO.

Do you find two A80's to be necessary? I'm running the IM Fusion 20 with just a single and it appears, so far, to be sufficient.

I do, yes. With one, it worked well, but I still had shaded area's on the sides and I really wanted to have 100% spread.

Since adding the 2nd, im very happy

I love the A80's. Excellent light! That would be perfect for your tank. Yes, I have 5 SPS in my tank right now.
Bubblegum Digi
Joe the Coral
Frogskin
Tricolor Valida
Red Monti Cap

All are doing great under these lights!

And you cant go wrong with getting one of these Nuvo 20's. You'll be super happy with the build quality and look.

PS:

About 2 days after that video, I ended up taking the Nepthea out to provide more room for the large toadstool. Here's an updated top down shot from lastnight. :beer:

It is, but there were some shaded area's on the sides I wanted to alleviate.

Picked up a 2nd RBTA a week ago. It was pretty pale when I got him, but he's starting to color up and extend much more :D

Took a few updated shots yesterday during a water change :wavehand:

i have the same nuvo 20 with a AI Hydra 26HD, just one of them, and i feel its enough lighting for the tank. It sits about 9 or so inches above water level

Would a clownfish and green/ blue Chromis get along in a setup this size?

Forsure! I currently have:

2x Clownfish
1x Fairy Wrasse
1x RedBanded Goby w/ Pistol Shrimp

All 4 get along fine :thumbsup:

i believe those would be fine together. I have 5 fish in my 20. They all get along great and have plenty of nooks and crannies to all hide in. The 2 clowns never leave the anemone anyways lol
