New tmc microhabitat 30 build!!

I just got my new 30 litre nano tank, comes with protein skimmer, digital heater, 12w Cree led lighting and powerhead, just taken 2 bits of live rock from my other marine aquarium, do you think I might need to out a little more in? Also in the rear chamber is just 2 bits of sponge, should I replace these? Thanks

By sponge do you mean filter media or is it a reusable sponge that you just clean every week?

I like poly floss/filter floss etc. I just toss it when it gets dirty and replace.

You don't need a lot of live rock rubble in the back, a few pieces and your good.

As for color for your tank, what about green, purple, blue mushrooms? Maybe some ricordias? Tri color ones?

That will add color to the tank. Maybe a little mat of green star polyps?

Yeah it's just filter media, I was thinking of replacing it with filter floss and some phosphate remover. Star polyps would be good, I plan to get some more coral at the weekend so will update with some more pics then.

I'd do the filter media and look forward to some more pics.
